Star Trek Online: First Foundry Challenge Detailed

The Star Trek Online team has announced the details of its first Foundry Challenge, a contest where players create a scenario and players vote for their favorites. The team has issued the background material for creating the scenario. Builders have three weeks to build their mod with players having a chance to play the mod for a week afterward before voting commences.

Today we start the four-week run of the first Foundry Challenge: Conundrum on Risa:

While on shore leave on Risa, the murder of a Stahlonian diplomat takes place on the island you are visiting. This diplomat was recently involved in talks with the Federation and KDF to join forces in combating the Borg advancement in the Alpha Quadrant. The loss of this diplomat is a tradgedy, and will cause a step back in negotiations, as the Stahlonian government was already worried about getting involved.

As the most senior ranking officer on the island at the time of incident, you have been tasked with investigating the events that lead up to the murder, including finding the culprit. As you begin questioning the locals, you stumble across clues that seem to follow some sort of pattern. As the investigation continues, you begin to realize there seems to be a riddle of sorts involved.

Read the full contest details on the Star Trek Online forum.

I "hate" this game, and I have a "Lifetime" subscription to it. I argued against a game that was predominantly space combat in focus clear back to the early Perpetual Entertainment development days.


I've long since, uninstalled this steaming pile they call an MMO and will never return.


It should be re-marketed as "Starfleet Battles Online", (dress-up) ground avatar included.


...ugh, this game reeks.

If you argued against their design for that long, why did you give them 300$ + box$?

 

No offense, but that makes no sense.

The Foundry is a great feature of the game.  I'm glad STO has it, while so few others do, and in general don't have a problem with events centered around game features.

Foundry is a cute thing, but it will not fix the games inherent lack of hard work needed to make it a full game. The games team were lazy or uninspired from the begining and did only what they had to. Much like SWTOR, the engine and/or design team under performed, perhaps its the big IP thing who knows.

 

They are looking to the player base to solve their poor work ethic. It's not going to work.

No , it actually works like this . 
 
  1. Get gold membership . ( pay us actual money )
  2. Get access to the Foundry.
  3. Make content for our game.
  4. See red flash message "So and So has created a Foundry Episiode you could win a LTS also. ( or some other pos reward ) "

Never undersestimate Cryptic's ability to milk the gullible of their money. They don't even mention some incentitive for doing this , other then they get your money. You can bet if they offer something though , that whatever it is , it won't worth more then the steaming pile of crap it costs to play , Cryptic is p.o.s company as are their products.

Whitelantern,


To get the Lifetime subscription, we needed to commit before the full details were known. I'm a Trek fan, I hoped for the best a gave them the benifit of the doubt. I was sorely disappointed (but I don't constantly flame them on the STO forum).


I don't give "Lifetime" subscription any consideration these days. I've been disappointed too often (have Lifetime subs on LOTR and Champoins too). Live and "finally" learn. lol

Still no sense. LTs were offered during open beta, right up until launch when everything about the game was known. The whole core of the game was there and playable and we knew what parts of the game were not going to be finished (klingons, endgame, ect).

 

I can understand if you weren't playing in open beta, you might not have know a few things, but the NDA was down so it was all still readily available on this site and many others.
