  • It is now possible to tag projects as category Quarters, for your entire player housing and crew quarter’s needs.

Foundry doesn't seem very high on the "to do" list for STO.

I would love to see a breakdown on the investment being put into the game and how much of developer's apparent "free time" is actually that
What does this mean and why am I get my hopes up? "It is now possible to tag projects as category Quarters, for your entire player housing and crew quarter’s needs."

I think they have someone who is working on porting the Neverwinter foundry to STO. By someone I mean just one person, don't quote me on that though.

EDIT: Just did some research on that "quarters" thing. Apparently you can flag a mission as that and use it only as an interior, i.e. player housing or ship interior. This would be good for RPing, or if you just want to create your own house.

Well, it is a start. Imagine a nicely created interior for Fleet social Events, where all Fleet members could be invited to with their favorite characters. No more need for Legionnaires to switch to their Starfleet alternate Characters. Smile

considering how many great content (and pretty much the only new content) comes from it, i wonder why they don't improve it more often...  i do understand it won't get new player but since they keep talking about using user content for the storylines..
The only thing I can assume is that they don't want to put too much effort into it until they port the neverwinter foundry. That one looks amazing.
