What is going on with the foundry? It would be great if the devs could actually explain to us what the problem is. I know it goes down after every major update, but it came back slowly, apart from the editor, then last week they instantly shut it off and tell us it would be back at the next maintenance. Now we are being told it is still unavailable. And what do they call temporary? A week, a month, a year?
Do the devs have any idea how important the foundry is to players in this game, because if all we had to play were the 130 standard missions in the game many would have left years ago. The facility to create new missions for yourself and others to enjoy is, for many, a fantastic bonus for STO, yet it's never given the importance it deserves by Cryptic, the fact it's still in Beta after nearly 8 years is one indication of that. Now I am concerned that it will be down for months until someone fixes it in their own time, as it seems many of the cool functions in the game are "own time" projects.
Cryptic, many of us would like some explanation of what is going on with the Foundry.
