Dear Sir or Madam,

We, The United, established a new post Science Minister to develop glyphs and secret technologies. This bring us a lot to share, with the lucky ones, in just two weeks since its establishment. All our citizens cannot wait to share these deals with you!

Queen Chan I of The United

I am not able to get my essentia until now. Can anyone check that out for me?

Your empire (The United) was awarded 100 E for the first pack.  We haven't rewarded you for the second pack since we haven't reviewed it yet.  I have downloaded it and will review it.

However in the future, you need to name your mission files using the correct terminology.

"Mission Name".mission would be appreciated instead of the date you produce the mission.

Can I get an estimated date when your review on my mission pack will complete? And will I still get exactly 100 essentia when it completes?

Just got back home, so I'll give more of a look tonight.  I did glance, and we'll be talking about what changes I'll need before approval.

I tend to be more lenient with first packs and I significantly rewrote your other pack before approving it.  I should of attached that pack when I approved it so you could look over the changes.

So hopefully tomorrow you'll have constructive feedback.

You'll also find this text in the zip file as feedback.txt

 

All your missions tend to have the same completion & headline. Something a bit more leading in the headline would be nice.

Completion should have %s in it so the empire that completes a mission is mentioned.

Also, we don't generally use our empire names in the mission texts. Making up a fake empire or corporation is acceptable though.

Note, all of your mission filenames were changed. Prefer something similar to the default that the mission editor would give you. (mission name + mission suffix)

 

bleeding_glyphs.mission

Wrote this one a bit more in the style wanted. Dropped the happiness bit.

Gas Giants are from size 60-121, so the sizes you put in would of failed.

 

brainstorm.mission:

10 Essentia for a volcano. Seriously overpriced.

The reward isn't bad even though with many excavators bringing back plenty of level 1 plans, anyone with a little effort can get one off the SST. (Or an alliance mate will figure a way to gift one). I'm thinking max level university 15 for this.

 

cashed_exchange.mission

Level 5 storage on a mission that can be done up to level 20.

This one can almost pass. I would probably up the storage to 10, drop the uni to 15.

Gold required to 30k, each amount of the reward raised to 2000.

 

crater_essentia.mission

Interesting mission. Clean up the texts, drop the essentia amounts to 5 & 6.

 

demonstration.mission

Rewards of glyph buildings over 2 aren't allowed. So drop the level of the hagness to 1+1

 

food_recharge.mission

This mission just doesn't make the cut at all.

 

more_to_go.mission

Got rid of the essentia bits. Raised the happiness cost and modified the reward.

 

no_archeology_ministry.mission

This mission doesn't make the cut at all.

 

power_up.mission

I think a mission to power up the mission command, might be good, however, the objective/reward on your mission is completely off. Not very keen on essentia for mission objective anyway, but 1e for a level 20 plan, a bit lenient. The resources tacked on don't make sense.

Did you mean to put a plan for building a Mission Command at level 20 from scratch?

The notation would be level 1, 19 extra build levels. (not that we'd allow that without serious investment.)

Also, you put the university level at 5.

 

space_station.mission

At some point, missions that request space station plans, might be good. The reward for this one, not worthwhile in the slightest. The investment for a level 3 Parliament plan is around 600,000 in resources.

Most empires with space station tech, aren't going to be interested in a level 7 Waste Recycling Plant. The well might get tossed onto a brand new colony, but that's a savings of less than the time to build the lvl 3 space station plan.

Am I prohibited or not recommended to type my own empire name? If that is prohibited, simply delete those text

And these are corrected:

Not recommended in that they get deleted.  I'll take a look in the morning.

Started looking at them and you didn't seem to make much of a change on some of them.

Here's the deal:

I want you to write some misisons with some decent objective/reward ratios.  Rewards should be 125%-150% of investment.

Don't involve essentia.  You seem to rely on it as crutch in your mission writing.

Right now, I'm unsure how to treat space station plans.  However, your mission involving one, is not how to do it.  Like I pointed out, a lvl 3 plan is 600,000.  You changed your levels of the plans I pointed out weren't very useful to be straight upgrade plans and added 600k of waste as a reward.  I don't get that logic at all.

In fact what I mean is to let them recycle for resources they like or need

I'm rejecting transfer--em.mission, special-lab.mission, space_station.mission, and power-up.mission for reasons stated previously.

I've attached a zip of the six missions that I'm OK with.  (I might still change them on resubmit, or another curator may mod them)

Once again, you are relying too much on essentia.
