i have been absent from the combine for a month and a bit, so i missed all discussion of crews. has a crew system been implemented? if so, is there a rules page about it?

It has not been implemented just yet. We are still working out the crew numbers, though I believe the actual details on how it will work are near completion. Most likely once its all ready there will be a week or so (maybe more) warning period before its introduced so you can get ready to stock up on crew when it comes out.

In the meantime, getting surplus ships docked in facilities or stations (I think) will mean that you will not have to worry about them degrading with no crew.

Degrading? As in taking damage?

No, as in getting more powerful...

:D okay,thanks. i was just curious

We were told that ships wouldn't degrade without crew. Now, is this not true?

Really? Hmm, the last I checked with that thread they were going to decay or something - seemed kinda pointless to have crew if not having any didn't have an effect. But as with anything here, things can change quite a bit up until the feature is released, and even then they occasionally change after release.

I think it was if you did not have a complete crew, a ship's operation stats would be declined. ie loss of shields, not full hyper etc.

But here is the forum link I found:

and the PDF rules draft:

It would be nice to have a few NPC darkness owned stations to hire from...

Ah so the stats would deteriorate. Just not continuosly, just to a certain point. Meh, difference, the stats would be decreased by not having them if not docked.

Thank you for looking into that -- that's what I thought. =)
