  1. I am sorry I have not been around much. With health problems and well real life issues becoming a burden I will probably have no time to play nor do anything with the website. Now from the way it looks, Dreada has passed on the server access to someone else which is fine with me. I am still hosting the website space and will continue doing so as long as I can afford it and I still find use for it. If in fact any of this does or seems that it may change in the future I will be sure to contact you all to let you know ahead of time. Until then enjoy the web space and use it at your own leisure. If you have any questions or problems......well I can't promise I will have time to answer the questions or work on the problems but my email address is [email protected]

    So enjoy the web space.

    Captain Reed OUT!

  2. No problems here. I had to take off any way. Had so business to attend to and I believe we accomplished quite a bit for what the session was worth. You have passed your navigating test along with targeting and engaging the enemy test. Now we will still have to hit the planet fall and ground based tests along with some more battle scenario tests to see how you do against different class vessels. So be prepared and try to get on the server with other people no matter if they are Wraith or not and do your own practicing.

    So carry on and contact with a few more dates and times of when you will be available for more training so that we can line something up before next weeks match.

  3. Also about Cartmanbeeps problem.

    I have that same problem but I can usually just refresh the list a few times and then it will give me the scanned servers currently running. You can also close or exit the UC MP program and then restart it.

    And on a further note for the website question. I have not had much time to do a whole lot, but I believe I fixed the main page so it should resize correctly to any resolution. I have uploaded the credits page and have it formatted to what I think it should look like in terms of what you have been telling me so review and revise it as you see fit.

    I also have some of the other pages you sent me, but some of them don't have all the images with them. They even have links on them that don't do anything, but give a page not found or unable to display page error.

    Thanks, Cmdr. Reed now lets get to work. Talk to Dreada and find out if you guys have an operational team to field on the 26th.

    I believe we do, but I will contact him to be sure. I am sure that I will be there so we will at least have one.

    Remember guys the best way I found to communicate with my fleet was to hold meetings with my staff on TS. You can get a lot more accomplished in a shorter amount of time. All fleets are welcome to use our TS server, which is up 24/7 to hold meetings or practice sessions with your troops.

    I think that is a very good idea and will recommend this to Dreada when I contact him.

  5. What ever you do don't lay the world on your shoulders thinking that you can fight every threat no matter how small. It is just a game and should not be taken too seriously. I know you have done a lot of work for this community and I believe that as long as you are here it will continue to live on. Just don't stress your self out to the point that you pop a vein on your fore head.

    If worse comes to worse take a week off and go for a brisk walk through the woods or something.

    Now I also appologize for my behavior towards you remo. When I saw what you were doing to Zane I thought you were being, as SC said, ridiculous and blew up. Now I think Zane is a good man and I didn't see why you were ripping into him so much, but now I do. I still don't see the big threat though. Zane is running his own thing. He is treating this game just like any other. Battlefield 1942 has multiple MP based tournament systems all created by different people. Now I feel that Zanes' MP Scenario system is just a side deal were if I am not doing anything one day I can go play there. You could call it an added bonus to those who have the time to play. So are we to persecute someone for having an idea or a vision just because it is placing more preasure on the pioneer of UC MP scenario design and game play. You, yourself, have had that vision and persued it to the finishing point, the point that we are currently at and are enjoying very much. You have worked hard on it and we appreciate it, but you can't control the world and that is why no one here can understand why you are fighting so hard to get rid of any competition against your MP system. Now I am sure that at a later time as this game becomes more popular you will meet another person setting up an MP scenario system. There isn't much that we can do when this game is public and in the hands of others. The only thing I can suggest is protect your MP scenario information to prevent it from getting stolen and used else where if at all possible.

    If you ask me since I am apart of a fleet and was part of a fleet before even knowing anything about what Zane was working on I would most definitely put fleet business before Zanes' stuff. So I hope you don't take any of this the wrong way and that I have been clear in the fact that all of what you have done is appreciated (by me as well as many others) and I hope to continue working with you in any way possible to help when time permits.

    So I salute you in the work that you have done and hope that you will continue your contribution to this community as well as working with me if at all possible.

  6. I thank you very much for coming in and giving me all the answers to my questions remo. It is good to hear that we haven't lost you in all the mess that has been going on between you and this community (myself included ). I don't feel that there should be a problem with you coming in and speaking with the community here at 3000AD acting as just a fleet leader.

    Marvin if you know where remo is please pass this message on to him.

    Also I would like to know who is going to be hosting these MP scenarios and if there is no one assigned then I would suggest involving all fleet leaders in running them, get fleet leaders together to vote on who should run them, or maybe find a volunteer.

    With that said, when is the next meet? And if it isn't already I think the meets and other information on when these scenarios are going to be played out should be posted some where.

    So if any one knows and can answer these questions then please do so.

    Thank you,

    Captain Reed

  7. So who may I ask is in control of the MP Scenario play now since Remo seems to have left us all in the dark on what his intentions are and without any word on what is going to happen with the MP Scenarios?

    I assumed there wasn't going to be a match this week since dreada asked two days ago what was happening with this MP stuff without any reply back on what was going to happen today.

  8. If there is a problem with the forums then please contact me. I am the one currently hosting the entire site and phpBB2 boards. I currently have two setup on the site, one for public use and another for members only use. If in fact you are having a problem I must know the following:

    1) Where exactly you went to reach the forums board you are trying to access.

    2) I need you to copy and paste the exact error you are recieving when you go there.

    Now once you have done this I will go over a few things and see what is causing the problem for you. If I find no problem on my end then I will attempt to advise you in a few methods that might in fact fix the problem for you on your end. So please PM me the information I have just listed above so that I may get started immediately.

  9. I wish there was a written list of rules posted on this site telling what you can post and can't in terms of discussing private websites. Because I did not know that this rule Remo is speaking of is actually an official rule. Now to me the name "Fleet Guide" is appropriate for what he is doing especially since this whole discussion has been about him setting up his own tournament and match scenarios that will be hosted by Zane and scored by Zane that aren't affiliated at all with fleets in 3000AD, but is affiliated with Multiplayer as it is posted under the Fleets and Multiplayer Discussions category.

  10. Well the biggest problem I see right now is that you are saying that is a person can't make it to a match or practice then they are included as "dead wood", but is that putting down those who can't make it because maybe the time is wrong for them or even the day. So just because someone lives in a certain area of the world that makes it way to difficult to come on and play a match on sundays at around 5 PM eastern time each week would make them someone who has to leave the fleet. Even though I am not one of them you are really going to be excluding people just because of their unfortunate luck. So in the idea of screening those fleet members that don't seem to be participating you should really be careful about removing those who are still or still want to be an active part in the fleet and make sure that you try to contact them and find out what their true situation is. If it is only because the time is just not right for them ever then how can you just exclude them for that?

  11. Well Wraith Fleet last time had to borrow people from other fleets just to fill spots. We currently have 6 members in our ranks including my self. Most of these members are either unable to attend because of real life matters or because of the major time differences. So far only Dreada and I have been available to attend any event that has been laid out and I can't promise that I will be able to attend every tournament. This even goes for the practices that you guys setup. All this probably applies to a lot of others as well. Those fleets currently under 10 members are actually in sorry shape because there is never going to be any one standing by to fill in spots if someone can't make it.

    So to clear up some confusion, at least in my opinion, wraith does not have a viable team to take into a tournament.

    So in the events of holding tournaments would be unacceptable for all fleets unless those fleets can have a team that can be trained and ready to play at these tournaments. This team would have to be all the same fleet. One of the biggest problems in our last match was that we had at least two fleet mixed to make one team. None of us on that team has ever played together in any practices or skirmishs causing some real confusion at the start when it came to assign people in different positions. Then on top of that there really was no plan at the start. It was all last minute and rushed since most of the start time was taken up by trying to organize our selves.

    So that is my long winded opinion and feel free to shoot holes in it if you would like.

  12. Sorry to butt in, but I think that Zane is talking about that he doesn't currently have a scoring standard created for the fleet action thing he is doing which does not correspond at all to the official matches which you and others have helped to put together. This fleet action thing is being solely created by Zane and no third party has not yet popped their heads in.

  13. Well Scrivener, I can understand why the people at Atari would consider your post offensive especially since you were saying so many bad things about the games they produce....oh and also the fact that you called them all money grubbing whores.

    Just a suggestion to you, don't make any comments like that here or you won't even get 15 warning points. You will probably just be banned since I found by observation that Derek Smart doesn't seem to tolerate comments such as that you made about the atari game developers.
