New Passengers will find themselves teleported to the bridge of their new ship with no warning! Everyone loves a surprise! There'll be a flutter of confetti, a playful and welcoming musical tune, and small tray with cups of chocolate-flavored pudding desserts sent along to celebrate. Welcome to your new ship, passengers!

Additional Notes:
  • We're looking for mod helpers! You can check out the details here. If you have a little time, please consider tossing in an application.
  • Some ships have fallen to 60 percent capacity or below. As a result, players have expressed interest in fusing ships! We have a permanent submission page here with the process and forms. Ships with six or fewer people are allowed to apply. If you were considering a fusion, but gained a seventh that was shuffled by the mods, then you are still eligible. Feel free to contact us with any questions!

    Hello, Dear Fleet!

    As you all may know, our beloved game has a lot of technical details, and a lot of things that go on behind the scenes. While having all of our wonderful spreadsheets certainly makes things a lot easier on the players as well as the mod team, it unfortunately isn't quite enough of a help when it comes to covering the sheer magnitude of things that need doing, things that need tidying up, and things that need to happen on a regular, consistent basis.

    Also, both head mods have full-time jobs, one head mod is still learning the balance necessary when it comes to modding a game that has more than like ten people in it, and the other head mod has a curse in which if she so much as breathes on a spreadsheet, the whole thing collapses in a violent death of e-fire and code. So that's fun!

    Anyway, long story short, we need help.

    Drift Fleet is looking for One or Two (1-2) Helper Mod(s)!

    Helper mods would be on-call, as needed, to help with small or more specific tasks:
    - assisting with shuffles
    - assisting with activity checks
    - assisting the App Mod with anything she deems necessary
    - combing the info pages for needed edits
    - adding new and needed info to the info pages
    - writing up small bits of an IC or OOC blurb for an event
    - being a tiebreaker in votes whenever needed

    We will totally work with your schedule so that you don't have to worry about being available at any times that don't work for you. If you prefer a regular, set timeframe during which you will be available to do things, we can set that up. If you prefer to just be contacted when needed, that is also an option.

    If you're interested, please fill out the following form/"application" in a comment to this entry. All comments will be screened for privacy. We'll begin looking through comments and discussing our choice in a few weeks time to give people plenty of time to decide if this is something they'd like to do. Thank you very much!

    After a long, intense month, the Calibrations event is now officially ending. Thank you to everyone for making this event such a wonderful experience! We simply can’t get over how creative all of you are, and your enthusiasm has just been downright contagious! You really are the best Drift Fleet Cycle a Mysterious Corporation In Space could ask for, you know that~?

    Buuuut seriously, you are also the best players a mod team could ask for. Here’s to you, Flooters. ♥ You’re all wonderful. We hope you all had as much fun as we did.

    We have a few things to go over, so please check out all of the details in this post to make sure you catch everything before we move forward! Click )

    ------------
    The Drift Fleet is now officially drifting! We want to give ample time for people to continue to backtag without feeling like they need to focus on the next new shiny, so the fleet will stay in drift from today, July 9th, until July 21st. During this drift period, the Fleet will continue on its course as if it never got held up in the first place! Convenient! Feel free to refamiliarize yourself with the ships, the Iskaulit, meet your new crewmates, or find some way to cope with the fallout of what the heck all of you just went through. As always, there are your standard waystations now and then that are perfectly explorable, should you need to get out and stretch your legs for a bit.

    Do try to have fun, yes? And, of course -- welcome home, dear Drift Fleet.

    A couple days have passed, and there are still no clear signs of when (or even if) the Drift Fleet's passengers will get to leave this strange wing of the Marsiva. Calibrations continue during the "night" cycles, for those who can remember the experiences.

    But one more strange thing starts happening during their stay! It's entirely opt-in, but if anyone wants a little more for their characters to investigate and chew on, it's here to be discovered!

    Those who were a part of calibrations last year might remember some of these discoveries - if they remember anything at all about them… but this year, there are more surprises to find! So even if you remember this plot from last time, give it another read-through, there’s still something new for everyone!

    Additional Notes:
  • This is the last shuffle until July 9th. Feel free to jump right into the Calibrations mingle, Calibration rooms, or backdate something on your new ship if you'd like. Characters accepted after today will be transported directly to the Marsiva to join the plot. Have fun!

    Here we are again, dear Flooters. After many adventures across many, many more systems than ever before, this Cycle of the hit show Drift Fleet is shaping up to be one for the books! But as far as Atroma is concerned, not everything has gone entirely smoothly. There have been more rough patches and space-road bumps than they’d like, and they’re not about to let those go completely overlooked!

    There’s also the matter of a special program everyone so very recently procured, and the need to protect some precious information…

    And so, starting today (June 9th), passengers will suddenly find themselves no longer on their own ships. At least they’ll be somewhere very familiar - though, is that really a good thing…?

    As of this post, the AC check for May is complete! Players with a "✔" or "🌟" for their newest character on the May AC spreadsheet are now eligible to apply for an additional character if they weren't already eligible from a previous month. Newer players with just a "✔" are now eligible to invite other players to join the game.

    The following characters did not meet AC and will be swept from the game:
  • Eugene Ben Woods

    If there is an error, please contact us right away so it can be fixed! Otherwise, players who have been swept from game have until August 1st to re-apply without requiring an invite.

    This is also a reminder that the Fleet has left the Corbius System as of 5/31, and now is heading into fairly uninhabited space until 6/9. A new post will be going up at the end of the drifting period to signal the start of the new plot.

    With the plot starting soon, you may want to read over the Calibrations post again and plot with other players or outline your own characters' rooms.

    Though no new planets will be introduced during this period, the Marsiva will be passing by the usual run down waystations. There are also plenty of sights to see on the Iskaulit. This and more (plot recap info, ship fusions, etc) can be found on the Extras page at any time.

    See you, space cowboys...

    Hello, everyone! Starting in two weeks, the Fleet will be going through an ordeal that will be familiar to some: Calibrations!! That’s right - characters are once again going to be dragged into their own psyches, and will get the opportunity to visit each other in the meanwhile!

    This plot will begin on June 9th, after roughly a week and a half drift period (May 31st - June 9th). We wanted to give people plenty of time to brainstorm ideas for this heavily interactive plot!

    For those of you new to us, or who would like a refresher, we have a handy guide / primer in this post! Just follow the cut below.

    click here for all the details! )
    -----

    More information about the rest of the event will be released closer to the starting date. If you have questions or want anything clarified about the Calibration rooms, go ahead and respond to the Questions comment below! You can also use the comments section of this post for plotting and interest-gathering, if you'd like!

    Hey guys, mod team here with a quick message.

    There's been some concerns raised surrounding communications with the mods, specifically regarding issues with other players. We looked it into and agreed there could be more room for clarity, so we updated the Player & Mod Contact Page with more information regarding how to contact us with problems regarding other players.

    The additions are as followed:

    If you have concerns or issues regarding another player, we may ask for different things depending on the severity of the issue.

  • If it's a player that you just wish to avoid and rather not be put on the same ship, just let us know before the next shuffle. We do not need a reason for why that is, as we feel that's your own business (everyone has someone they don't get along with), though we may ask if you think there's going to be a problem.

  • If it's a more serious transgression such as OOC harassment or godmodding that would require stricter actions, please contact us with as much information and evidence (screencaps, chat logs, etc) as possible, as well as your preferred resolution to this problem. We may choose a different alternative than your suggested resolutions, but we always aim to find the best resolution we can. However, this can only be done if we know as much information as possible.


  • (These are again being reworked, as per player feedback.)

    We hope this helps makes things clearer if you should ever need to contact the mods, as well as help the mod team better discern the best course of action in the future.

    Thank you!
