Chaos Map: Member-Made Hyperlane Edition

Yesterday, 03:01 PM

We've had the Hyperlane Template for some time now and I'm rather disappointed at the lack of love it receives. After spending a decent amount of time collating old threads to create the Crusader's Way Hyperlane from years old RP, I decided to dig around the approved locations and see what other lanes had been submitted.

 

Findings were slim. Only 5 have been submitted since the creation of the template that oh-so-many people petitioned for. 

 

I get it, you want to see your lane on the map. Well, I may not be on Staff anymore but I can spare some extra time once a month to update an unofficial Chaos map with new member-made hyperlanes as they are submitted and approved. It's a fun little way to show our work and it's not a lot of trouble to do.

 

Feast thine eyes. Use it. Explore it. Fill it up. Give the Hyperlane Template the love it deserves.

Newest Additions to the Codex Team

07 January 2018 - 01:47 PM

We recently said goodbye to The Slave due to a busy home schedule and shifting interests. In his place we welcome back Whisper to the Codex. Whisper has served with us numerous times before under a different name - make yourself comfy again.

 

You may notice two other additions to the Codex roster: Ra'a'mah has been with us for a short while now and Asha Hex rejoining us once again.

 

Both of these members have joined the team to dedicate their time specifically to helping us build Chaos LORE. You will likely see a good deal of them in the future asking for input from the memberbase and factions on the various events and settings across the galaxy to catalog in an new and ongoing project that will be unveiled in the not-to-distant future. 

 

Welcome new CJs!


NPC Fleet Template Upgrade - Size Expansion

06 January 2018 - 12:48 PM

Fleet Template

 

Over the past few months we've had a consistent request to broaden the horizon on our original Task Force Fleet Template which allowed for only smaller fleets. The Task Force template was used as Codex's test-run into the Fleet template usage with the goal to help make fleeting a bit more approachable to less experienced or newer members. The results have looked pretty good.

 

So we've expanded the limitations on our Fleet template with a new maximum meterage of 15km (set to match the T6 Company limit). Fleet and ship sizes are still controlled by the rule-sets in place within the Factory depending on faction status and company tier, but we hope this will open up new opportunities for fleeting and give you battle-crazy nuts a new way to organize your space toys.

 

Without further adieu, the new Fleet Template:

 

 

Fleet Template

This template may be used to construct a fleet of various sizes for various designations.

 

Your meterage allowances for lead ship and fleet total can be referenced in the factory rules here.

I am Mahet, Ask me Anything

04 January 2018 - 09:31 PM

In the same vein of other posted AMA's to this forum I'd like to open the round table for myself. It's been brought to my attention that staff can be intimidating to approach even for simple conversation so I'd like to make an active effort to talk to more people on the forum in an open environment.

 

Ask me anything (within reason) and I shall answer to the best of my ability.


Factory & Codex are now open

02 January 2018 - 04:17 PM

Our holiday has come to an end and the flood gates are open.

 

As a reminder: The ban on submit-able subjects from The Last Jedi is still in effect until January 14th to help eliminate potential spoilers for anyone who may not have seen the movie yet.

 

Go forth and create, my pretties!
