Hello everyone! New round of the Deathmatch is up! Go vote for someone!

In the latest grudge matches, people decided that the Best Mandolorian Sigil is Mudhorn and Sand Panther. No love for puffer pig. Favourite Tie is the Tie Interceptor and the least favourite one is the Tie Bomber. Not all Tie's made it to the grudge match though, so there is still a chance that there are more popular Tie's (an idea for a grudge match!).

When it comes to GMAAS voting, the Approach the astromech and try to activate it option got the most votes and this is what may happen next! But this week there are no new episodes, the story is being put on hold. It may continue one day if people enjoyed reading it. Do you think it was an interesting story? Did deciding what will happen next (through the grudge matches) made it more engaging and fun? If you have any comments or would like to share your opinion on this project and if it should be continued, DM Polar or Falcon. Thank you!

New grudge matches are up! You can vote here. Submitters will be awarded soon. If you have a good idea for a grudge match, you are welcome to submit one and if it will be published, you will receive CP's!

 

This is all for today! Have a good weekend everyone.

We have a new Deathmatch winner! Hexagon shaped avatar wins!(no one should be surprised) It's Dex Sehrin! Congratulations. New round has been started, you can check if you or your friends are there and vote against them here.

 

Results of grudge matches from last week: Which Is Your Favorite RM Hauling Heavy Freighter? The one and only: Bulk Freighter! Is there anyone who never piloted one? if there is, you should go and do it right now, you will not regret it!

Best place to live! -  South. I think it's the right answer. North was not far away from south when it comes to votes, only 30 votes away! That's less than Chisses and people who are still stuck on Winter Comet, who voted for Island Life.

Our Grudge Match Actually Affects Something serie will go through an interesting plot twist. The winning option: Stay with Sel aboard the Russet Eagle, and go down fighting alongside her friend. will have terrible consequences for our main characters. What kind of consequences? You can read about them here.

 

New Grudge matches are out!

 

That's it for today! Have a good weekend everyone! And if you happen to have a bad one... bad days are often a source of good, interesting stories! Stay strong like a... like a... strong Gamorrean!

- You can now select which weapons to fire in space combat. This setting only applies if there is a Corvette-class ship or larger present on either side. See rules page.

 

Todays sync brings the ability to use explosives to break through locked doors, and ability to repair damaged/destroyed doors. This is similar to how lock breakers work, but with more explosions.

The full rules about explosive door breaching can be found here: Demolitions
The full rules about door repair are here: Lock Repair

At the moment, door breaching can occur: in combat systems or aboard bandit bandit ships.

Bandit corvettes will spawn doors around “sensitive” rooms that will need to be hacked/destroyed to get to the enemy squad and to take control of the ship.

Repairing damaged doors can be done from the locks screen.

Explosive stats and bandits spawning with doors will be set within a few hours of this post.

Hello! Recruitment post here.

If you are hoping to get involved in the game behind the scenes, now is your chance! Every one of these positions also pays in CP so you can spawn new ships, vehicles, droids, items, creatures, and apply images to them. Any affiliation can apply for any position, these are fully OOC jobs. Details on how to apply will be specific to each one so read carefully and send to the right person. Apply for whatever you think fits for you!

 

Quest Team

As a member of quest team, your job will be to write scripts for NPC/Droid/Creature/item dialogues. This can be for generic "All Riflemen say this" or specific to a quest. You will have the ability to more directly suggest quests as well. To apply, send Galia Winters two example scripts you've written using the LISP NPC Scripting functions. Please be sure to do more than just (say) and similar functions.

 

Art Team

The Art Team is looking for 3d modelers, both beginner to advanced. Beginners will be allowed in on an intro level and given help to train to intermediate level within three months. For those at the intermediate to advanced level, the Art Team is accepting applications for full time team membership. In recognition that the major projects that the Art Team is about to undertake, we will need some 2d Artist support as well for a large scale NPC project. To apply please message Galia Winters on discord (Galia Winters#0576) or via game DM with samples of your work and/or intent.

 

Art Queue Team

The art queue needs 2-3 people who can be objective about artwork while maintaining the rules. Optimally those applying would have some artistic experience, however this is not necessary. Tasks included are evaluating quality in accordance to posted rules and regulations, maintaining the spirit of the rules, evaluating art for denial and approvals, and above all work well in a team environment. Taking guidance from the Art Queue Leaders as well as Art Director and being on Discord is a must. If you are interested, contact Galia Winters.

 

Descriptions Team Director

Director of Descriptions Team provides oversight of the descriptions team, approves description submissions, and submits descriptions to the team for review/discussion. They are also responsible for serving as the liaison between the descriptions team and SWC administration and resolving conflicts with descriptions amongst players and faction entities. As Director, they identify and lead any projects for the team. Writing experience, especially descriptions is a big plus. To apply, contact Erek/Superman and tell him why do you think you are fit for this position.

 

In the future we may have openings in other teams, once it happens we will post about it. There is no deadline for applying, but as soon as the spots will fill up, we will stop accepting applications. I will keep this post up to date with available positions.

Only four people are left in the current edition of the Deathmatch! Who will get to the grand final? Decide here!

There are also a few new grudge matches (submitters will be rewarded shortly) that include a voting that will decide where the next adventure of The Russet Eagle crew will happen. Last weeks most popular answer for the question "What does the ships crew find within the containers?" was - An ancient disassembled droid of Zakuulan origin. Let's see how it worked out for them, the next chapter is here.

From the last weeks grudge matches, we could clearly see that when it comes to buying anything from the vendors, weapons and raw materials are the most popular choice. Also that peoples cockpits are either nice and clean or full of people and droids (no wonder there are so many accidents). Almost no one admits that their cockpit is full of keycards anymore. They belong in a museum!

 

Later this week/next week we will be posting a sim news about recruitment to a few swc teams. If you have some free time and were thinking about helping the swc team, now you will have a chance to do it! Keep your eye/eyes open for the blue blinking icon.

 

This is all for today, have a good weekend everyone

edit: I forgot to add, you can still submit Grudge Matches and receive CP's for them if they get published. The deadline to do it has been extended.

New round of the Deathmatch is out! You can vote here. New grudge matches are out too (submitters will be rewarded soon), including a poll about what should happen in the next episode of the story about Russet Eagle's crew.

From the last week's grudge matches:

1. Best meme: What's a meme!

2. Favorite illicit product: Just say no.

Very nice.

The GMASS story continues! For the question about what should happen next, majority of voters answered: Jump to hyperspace and investigate the cargo shipment that was brought aboard.

So this is what they did! Second part is already posted here.

 

This is all for today. Have a good the rest of the week everyone.

In the final duel of the Deathmatch, the fight was very close, the participants ended up 1 vote apart! It was also the most voted on duel, from the whole Deathmatch. Congratulations to the winner -  Kimberly Tylger!

New matches are out! You can vote here!

 

Moving on to the last weeks grudge matches. Majority of voters for a question "Are you or your faction actively involved in the galactic war?" voted that they are not involved. Galactic war, what is it good for? The next one - "Favorite Feature Planned for the April 1st update?" - revealed that R&D is in very high demand. Good that it didn't state which april 1st. New grudge matches are out! You can vote here. People who submitted them should get their cp rewards soon.

 

Today we would like to try something new. On our forum, in General Talk, you will find a thread called "GMAAS - Grudge Match actually affects something". It's a short, entertaining story written by one of our players, happening in our galaxy. The story will have a few parts, and what will happen in them depends from our community! There is a special Grudge Match called GMASS with 4 choices that you can vote on. The answer with the most votes will happen in the next episode. Go vote here, I hope you will enjoy it!

 

I think this is all for today. Have a good week everyone!

Last round of the current Deathmatch is out! Jawas very heavily invested in their visibility, you can see them everywhere nowadays! They put a lot of effort into advertisement, for example by writing and posting GNSes or creating some kind of community event called Swap Meeting, all of this just to make sure that Nejal wins the Deathmatch! Is it enough to beat Kimberly? We will see next week! Vote here while you can!

 

We have two new Grudge matches from 2 lucky submitters. You can vote for them here. Last weeks results are as follows: favourite item people wish to be implemented are... grenades! Because aiming is overrated. For the question Who killed Lancer? the most popular answer was... "No one! He is still alive somewhere!". Yes, about that... or maybe better some other time.

 

Anyway here is wonderwall this is all for today! Have a good week everyone!
