    So I started an alt a few weeks back (Zylo Zand) and a few minutes ago that account had a truly stupifying voyage dilemma!

    All I can confirm is treachery was assumed based on Maquis Torres' suggestion that we arrest the Maquis so we opted to forgo arresting the stowaway.

    Zero days since our last injury.

    Apparently, despite the fact that "Injured" is in her name, this did not qualify as a preexisting condition.

    UPDATE:

    It has been three days and "Injured" Torres is still injured. I am simply at a loss to explain this, I have dozens of alleged "doctors" on my vast crew and none of them seem to have the first clue in treating a simple knee injury!

    So my alt (Zylo Zand, if you see me in game, say hello!) has been working on leveling the Kal-if-fee Spock from the campaign this month, and as a result has a much greater appreciation for why the Vulcans chose to include the word "Infinite" twice when naming the IDIC, as one requires roughly two infinite supplies of IDICs to level up a Vulcan!

    This is also ironic, since the equipment requirements are anything but "Diverse!"

    I am pleased you picked up what I was putting down :)

    About to hit a couple of big milestones this week.

    One down, one to go. You all knew I going to make Janeway #600!

    And here is the other one.

    So by sheer accident I stumbled onto a rethink on how to staff voyages. I've been running tests for several days and finetuning the formula to try and get it nailed down. I've been sharing my results with members of Starport.
  • Bylo BandBylo Band ✭✭✭✭✭
    I've done a couple minor tweaks to my new voyage staffing formula, and I am pleased to report that version 3.0 has yet to fail to reach 10 hours, even during a Faction event AND with the Freighter ship trait!
  • Bylo BandBylo Band ✭✭✭✭✭
    After sharing my new voyage staffing system within my own fleet, I have refined it a tad more and shared it with a small group of friends outside my fleet. I am very pleased to report that it has been, quite literally, "all good"! The results have exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds!

    To anybody feeling the squeeze of the new fleet daily requirements and are looking for a new home, we still have some spaces available, but we are filling up. I am holding a few spots open for a few friends so they have a guaranteed landing spot, but after that we still have about 10 spots left. Reach out to me in game, on Discord, or PM me here on the forums if you'd like to transfer over to our fleet.

    I have found that arresting the maquis sometimes gives you a rare that the other options do not.

    I just found it really humorous that the Maquis member of the crew is advocating for the two harsh options involving a fellow Maquis, and the Trill with a VERY lethal firearm is advocating for the kind option :)
  • (HGH)Apollo(HGH)Apollo ✭✭✭✭✭
    Hehe yeah. Dilemmas are funny like that due to the crew. The constellations are another source of humor. Got one for a spy traitor character but the polestar that dropped from it said the person was Federation so the spy is hiding the deception well.

    It was a pleasure playing with you Anirtak. Thank you sincerely for working so hard to build up the team in fleet chat, your contributions enriched us all.

    I changed the name of this thread to reflect the number of open spaces we have left.

    As you can see, we are on the rise! We are nearly full up and coming on, we have a thriving community, and we are still looking for a few folks to "top us off". We are very lowkey so if you are just looking for a fleet to hide in to stop people like me from inviting you to a fleet, consider joining Starport!

    -EDIT-
    We are now full, booya!

    OK, so...

    ...we've come a LONG way since March. We're full up and our core is strong, and we have a really good community going in Starport.

    In the coming few days we will have a few spots opening up that I can definitely fill but if anybody wants in, send me a PM and I'll make sure we do our best to get you in.

    -EDIT-
    Our Chief Engineer @JimBerlin has also been HARD at work creating several Crew Retrieval tools exclusively for use by members of our fleet, and they are so good he has convinced me to take Crew Retrieval seriously, so you know they are good!
  • JimBerlinJimBerlin ✭✭✭
    To elaborate, I have two. One is focused on using the celestial market to your advantage. I have a tool that will tell you what the cheapest retrieval for a crew is based on market prices.

    It also has a tab with legendary crew that can be retrieved using only commonly available polestars, known as the Cheapskate's List...

    The first tool is "complete" and will be released to the community at large eventually.

    The other is much more in the works and focuses on giving you a report of where your roster is currently and how that compares with what is possible overall. Some different things are given along the way that I find I want constantly. This is all done through a scripted import of your crew.csv from either Datacore or STTEVE. It is very slow, lol, but it works. These aren't meant to tell you what to do, but cut out some of the legwork and present your roster in a way where you can make judgements and plans more quickly.

    My favorite little tidbit is that it auto-calculates your collection status and applies bonuses for you.

    Stat boosting collections get weighted for due to their impact on your roster's overall scores. This tool is very much WIP and I'm super open to feedback and changing things up. I'm currently working on trying to make this leaner because it's quite clunky do to all of the writes during the scripting process. This is open to Starport members to use on their own, or I'm running the tool for them upon request.

    The two things left to add are stats on your current absolute current scores (currently runs on max scores, so it's a "max potential" of your current roster) and metrics on what I'm call "Minutes Over Replacement" or MOR for short. Using that, I will be able to estimate the effect adding a specific crew would have on your voyages. So, some personalized ranking will be in order instead of just top 10 based on overall scores.
