    Prime Fleet Pinboard

    Gentlemen, please use this thread to discuss everything related to the Prime Fleet, which does not belong to one of the other threads. Here, you can also ask the moderator of this forum (that's me!) to open specific new threads. Thanx. [ 06-08-2004, 08:43 AM: Message edited by: Supreme Cmdr ]

    Inexplicable CTD...

    Just a few shots in the dark... Check for ex. www.guru3d.com for other drivers for your graphics board. Be sure to really uninstall old drivers while updating (use drivercleaner or any other driver uninstaller tool). Also, setting hardware acceleration one step back from highest for audio has helped people from time to time. If you still experience problems, check older versions of the game. Does the game run stable out of the box? A bad patch download could also be the problem... You did check the FAQ, didn't you? Best regards

    Welcome, Cary, Maybe you want to read the Welcome-Message again? Welcome to the 3000AD forums Let me point out an important paragraph for you: quote: Just because you happen to own one of our games, doesn't earn you some special privilege to come to the board, nor to post here. If you want tech support and you don't want to abide by our board rules, send email to the tech support address listed in the manual. So, stop that bickering! It will only get you out of this community faster than you can say "airlock"... Best regards

    Yep, deleted him, deleted topic. Usually, I give people a chance, or two. But not this time...
  16. Welcome back, Remo! quote: Originally posted by Remo Williams: [...] As you can see the Fleet Charter mirrors the game appendix and the in-game BC universe ranks. So I see no reason that we should have had to put up with what occurred with Gudihl; which almost caused my resignation if it would have been accepted by Derek. Noone asked for any resignations! And the only thing, that happened, was you posting (in this thread): quote: Originally posted by Remo Williams: The Following are the ranks available with-in Prime fleet and how They're assigned. [*]Supreme Commander - (The Main Man) [*]Tacops Commander - (G6 Fleet Leader) [*]Strategic Commander - (G6 Staff Chief) [*]Fleet Commander - (All Other Fleet Staff) And: quote: The rank of Fleet Commander now designates that you are of the Staff officer level which makes you a commander over the entire fleet for the job that you do within the fleet. Hence you maintain the rank of Fleet cmdr. The fleet leader of Prime has always had seniority over the other Fleet Leaders in the field since he runs Prime the #1 fleet in the GalCom alliance. Now, don't tell people stories about me "attempt(ing) to undermine all the work that the others and myself (Remo Williams) here in Prime have done over the years" (your words)! Btw., most of this "Prime Fleet Charter" is based on the work from me, and suggestions by Cmdr. Badgerius, from 2000, plus meaterial from the manual, and the appendix. You later substituted 8 Squadrons by five Squadrons, and five "Carrier Groups" in the Fleet Structure, and introduced the renowned Prime Fleet Academy. Rest assured, old friend: if you (or anyone else) ever try to mess up stuff like the upper ranks, which affects other fleets not under your responsibility, or post statements like "Prime Fleet is senior over other fleets, therefore the commander of Prime Fleet is senior over other fleet leaders", I post my objections, as is my duty: quote: Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: As far as I am concerned, Gudihl's involvement is solely from an admin standpoint since he knows a bit more about how the fleed dB backend, the BC mythos etc all work. This means that he can be involved in any aspect of the fleets (not just Prime) in order to ensure that they are in compliance with the game mythos etc. This whole mess was never about Prime Fleet at all, as you try to convince people (and maybe yourself?) all the time... Cheers

    Heh, no. He was one of the first the SC entered. The SC himself has member #308, because IIRC members of the old forum (there was one before this one), have been added in alphabetic order... Some of us are in this community since 1996. Cheers
  18. Okay, this discussion between Remo, Prime Staff, and me, is to be continued in Prime Fleet HQ's Tactical Command Center!
  19. Marvin: Well, I am not against a new ranks structure, as long as it does not mess with GALCOM HQ standards. Thus, only ranks Commander, and below, are open to discussion... Compare the appendix data with the military rank chart: Ensign - Ensign Lieutenant - Lieutenant Junior Grade Major - Lieutenant LT. Commander - LT. Commander Commander - Commander Fleet Commander - Captain Strategic Commander - Rear Admiral (lower, and upper half) Tacops Commander - Vice Admiral Supreme Commander - Admiral IMO, they compare quit good! Now, you should differ between the commander, and the (elite force) pilot career. These are two different ranges, with completely different ships available: elite force pilots can access fighters, whereas commanders can access carriers, and cruisers (and transports, well). The rank "Fleet Commander" is called Fleet Commander, because he typically commands, well, a fleet. Typically, you need to be "Captain" (Navy) to be commander of a ship, with a "Commander" (Navy) as your co-commander, or 1st Officer. The SC reduced this by one rank, thus in the BCM(G)/UC-Universe, a Commander commands a ship, with a LT. Commander as his 1st Officer. Now, since June 10th, in the Ter/Mil alliance the commanders, and co-commanders of the fleets have been promoted to Startegic Commander, and Fleet Commander respectively. Now, you are nearly equal with the Navy ranks, where a Rear Admiral typically commands a group of ships. Within Prime Fleet, the promotions come with your position on one of the various levels. But you could propose a new ranks structure like: Commander of Prime Fleet, G6 - rank "Strategic Commander" - 1 position Co-Commander of Prime Fleet, G6 - rank "Fleet Commander" - 1 position Fleet Staff G1 to G5 - rank "Commander" - 5 positions Commander of a Wing, S6 - rank "Commander" - 5 Wings, each 1 position, together 5 positions Co-Commander of a Wing, S5 - possible rank "LT. Commander" - 5 Wings, each 1 position, together 5 positions Wing Staff S1 to S4 - possible rank "Major" - 5 Wings, each 4 positions, together 20 positions Commander of a Squadron, x6 - possible rank "Major" - 8 Squadrons per Wing, together 40 positions Squadron Member, x - possible rank "Lieutenant" - up to 9 ships per Squadron, together 360 positions All in all up to 437 positions (ship commanders) plus cadets plus marine battallions, and so on. Now, the first to ranks are given by GALCOM HQ. IMO there's not so much difference between a Fleet Staff member G1 to G5, and a commander of a Wing S6, or between a Wing Staff member S1 to S4, and a commander of a Squadron x6 (or "Carrier Group"). Beware: this revised new rank structure with the "possible" (new) ranks would break the historical rule that you need to be a "Commander" to actually command a ship, and also would be a contradiction to the BCM(G)/UC Appendix Data! OTOH, it would provide some extra means of promotion, which could provide some motivation. People would leave the Academy as Lieutenants; a Cadet would have either the rank LT. Commander in the old scheme, or Ensign in this new scheme... Well, what ship could such a Lieutenant possibly access, and what are the ranks of his crew members? An Ensign as 1st Officer of such a ship, and everyone else an Enlisted Rank (Navy term)? You should also ask, and discuss this with the commanders of the other fleets, at least in the Ter/Mil alliance, before submitting a final proposal to GALCOM HQ! Best regards

    Fleets General Info Pinboard

    Effective Immediately. [*]Fleet Cmdr. DREADA of Wraith Fleet has been promoted to the rank "Strategic Commander" [*]Fleet Cmdr. Remo Williams of Prime Fleet has been promoted to the rank "Strategic Commander" Both promotions have just been issued by the SC! The changes within the Fleet DB are already made. Now, all fleet leaders within the Terran/Military alliance have the rank "Strat. Cmdr.", and have security level "Alliance Leader". Congratulations, Gentlemen!
