For those of us who have been playing only for the short time of 6 months: If possible can someone take a minute to post any and all relevant facts about TRI missions and accomplishing them. I am assuming that it is self explanatory, but there are probably some tricks and protocols for them that I am not aware of.

Hell, I feel like a newb again, something in the universe that I do not know how to do

And to lump myself in with those who know when EP2 will come out due to their own bad luck. I guarantee that it will come out April 1st which is the day I leave for Europe for 3 1/2 weeks. By the time I get back all the good POS spots will be taken

I posted this at Jumpgateweb.com a while ago. Basically it describes exactly how to run a FM.


Already the hardcore wannabe "roleplayers" have started to bring forth their *OOC*/*IC* conflict of interest soapboxes.
ISU claims exclusive rights to GBS and Saron's Shoulder sectors (among other things)
    i've always known Ridgeway's squad to be a decent pvp player run event/storyline group and this certainly confirms this. (though i'm damned certain they also cannot effectively roleplay in a MMOG; see here)

Just as an example from another game: House camping in Ultima Online. If you house camp someone and kill them repeatedly for the purpose of making them move is bannable. Permanently. If you are concerned about the same happening to you then you need to either work out an agreement with your neighbor or page a GM.

It's neither plausible nor practical to claim a whole sector as your own especially if EP2 is a windfall for the game. It simply won't be possible.

so OTT...i wonder. if noone had complained on the forums would they have taken themselves seriously? possibly. (It's that machismo "lemmie at him!" attitude that one EXPECTS your friends to hold you back.)
    and that, ladies and gentlemen, is the depth and breadth of this type of wanna-be roleplay

OOC.
I love the RP nice going guys best of Luck.
And if someone wants to build in unreg how can he go complain to the GM's if he's shot? ITS UNREG!!!!!!!

I swear all the moaning and complaining about Unreg drives me nuts. ITS UNREG!!!!!! if someone wants to claim it, unless you can convince them with your guns not to then tuff. Whether you want to fly through Unregulated(unprotected) space or build your station there, deal with the fact that its unregulated.

to me someone building in unreg and then getting shot at and complaining is like me going to build canis and then getting mad the flux shot me. Unreg is dangerous, it says it in jossh, it says it in the little window that launches the first time you jump into unreg. deal with it or stay in your space.

This is just my opinion, you might have your own. doesnt matter to me.
I do applaud ISU's RP. way to go guys. I hope it works for you.
:urstupid: Then there's the people who like to play the total asshole they can't in real life. HELLO! Nobody said unreg was where you can grief someone. jeezuz. (and i'll bet that's when they start quibbling over what 'grief' means? like i'm saying they can't sneeze in unreg. *sigh*)
    it's like if we're against THEM we're 100% against anything remotely like something that rhymes with them. Classic paranoid delusions...
lmao Gods! and then they'll probably start arguing that unreg is a dangerous place not meant for carebears, so anyone who does build there CAN contest their policy "fairly"...which is all well and good until one realizes they're just quibbling over what 'grief' means again, and again, etc. (which again, is really lousy "RP" to intentionally talk about *OOC* things to provoke a vicious circle of "argument" that validates one's point of view that 'griefing' can't possibly be 'griefing' if you stick a "RP" macro on it.)
    ...And the Chutzpah to think this is "roleplaying"? yup. that's exactly what you'll find in Squad Silo forum. These people actually think "illogician tactics" are the only valid RP device going.

The general meaning is that one cannot enjoy the advantages of two mutually incompatible situations.

i do believe there is also a saying by Mark Twain that i'd pose to those who accuse me of being nothing but a troll: "Never argue with a man who buys ink by the barrel"

a number of really crazy FMs were coded that were completely camp. the Kitsch was unbelievable and i'm ashamed to even feel like reporting this embarrassment.


FFS
as far as i'm concerned the US server RP is crap because of this ridiculously flippant *IC* attitude towards T.R.I. by an obviously stupid *OOC* cop-out by TG pandering to the lowest common denominator

Technically, TG doesn't control what is written for the missions. ND does it.

insane is that "write" as in "input the data" or "write" as in "decide how fast/what's the object/etc"?

I have no detailed information on that, so I can't comment until I do. :grin:

ahahahah!!!! what a joke! BTW, it looks as though the US server releases are matching the EU planned RP schedule. (coincidence?)
    stupid FM list image still looks stupid no matter how one dresses it up
