Well, this is your chance to have all the info you want about Virtual Enterprise. This is your Chance to become the Moral Officer.

Ok, you don't have to dress up as Neelix and make cakes for everyone but you get every scrap of info I will divulge. It's nothing I wouldn't tell everyone eventually (cause that would be your job). Here's the deal:

Who ever can do what is required to become Moral Officer (see below) will get access to a secret forum. In this forum, daily updates of the MOD. Small spoilers, progress reports and sometimes screenshots for your use. That means, you get to post, once a week, and news topic. With any content taken from the secret forum. Don't take it all in one go, as not to spoil everything Wink. With this job comes these responcibilities:

[list:8d4b0ce5ac]
[*:8d4b0ce5ac] You must be available to make the post once a week.
[*:8d4b0ce5ac] You must sacrifice your rank temporarily, but it will be returned along with any promotions you may have gotten during your service.
[*:8d4b0ce5ac] You'll be in charge of enchancing the excitment on release day while we wait for it to be uploaded Wink
[/list:u:8d4b0ce5ac]

But you get these privilages:
[list:8d4b0ce5ac]
[*:8d4b0ce5ac] All the dirt there is on Virtual Enterprise to the point where it almost spoils it all (but it doesn't so there is no problem, you will still enjoy the mod).
[*:8d4b0ce5ac] You get a special rank Na na!
[*:8d4b0ce5ac] You get screenshots and the latest ETA on release.
[/list:u:8d4b0ce5ac]
This is a temporary position, until the MOD is released. But you will be the most informed. Can you turn it down?

OK, Here is what you have to do!

You have to draw a cartoon 640x480 deck of a ship!! This has to be an old ship now, not a starship, like the Titanic, and no rip off of designs from online sources. You must also give your ship a name, an "original" name. The judges will be Me, Worf55 and Vanhal. Marks will be awarded for:
[list:8d4b0ce5ac]
[*:8d4b0ce5ac] Creativity
[*:8d4b0ce5ac] Accessability (Easy to get around, restricted areas etc.)
[*:8d4b0ce5ac] Safety
[*:8d4b0ce5ac] Design
[/list:u:8d4b0ce5ac]
Marks will be given out of ten from each judge and then divided by the number of judges.

The file must be in jpg format (because of us poor judges with 56k's) and as stated above, must be 640 pixels wide, 480 pixels high. Send in submissions to competition@efmods.com by July 20th, 2002 (Yes this means the mod won't be out by then, but this is not the release date).
No matter what I choose, no matter how much I buy, the ones I love will always be the ones who pay. Whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words, "with great parents comes great reliability." This is my gift; their purse. Who am I? I'm Dobberman.

What is a moral officer? Someone who is very moral? Do you mean a morale officer? They're completely different.

And depending on what the rank is........

I'd love to do it, but I really dont feel like arranging the virtual game stuff, updating my 10to5 site, keeping an eye on training, working on textures and skins, organising new training, AND doing this.

I might do it, I just dont feel exactly like doing it at the moment.

You have to be smart don't yah Na na! I taught they were spelt the same only pronounced differantly!

And the rank is Morale Officer, cause that's what you are, you'll get one of the non commissioned officers pips

nune taken it was ment as a joke. It brakes evry role he made about the contest. It is the
roung size, it is a star ship, it looks like a farangi moroder with a sovrent soser and borg
parts all over it, IT is caleld the U.S.S. enter and to top it all off it is a .gif and not a jpg!

So rilly it is a joke just like evryone elces.

(but I did make the image in MS paint. All I did was look at other things for a refence and no I made it for somthing elce but it wors for this.)

I made these 2 files on graph paper and I edited it to add lines on the computer showing labels (I made it a few years ago), I know they are probably too big but thats just how I made them, I put them online at these addresses, because there are 2 decks, together they make 571 kb
first deck = 294 kb
second deck = 277 kb

also, if I win, could you explain in detail what you have to do (the info on the first post in this topic is not detailed enough, I don't understand), email me if I win

truddell@sympatico.ca

edit: if you can't view the pictures, I will send them to that address in an attachment

You know, I'm afraid that VE will probably be released in August. I just have the feeling it will. And because I'm going on holiday from July 31st to about Auguse 21st, I'll probably miss the release of Virtual Enterprise, Virtual Voyager, and probably the possible Voyager Insurrection release too. Wah!

There wouldnt be much need in one yet, since production is on hold and all. But hey, this probably means I will miss the release then won't I.

And with me being finished from school now............ I'm getting to work on the virtual game, and on the VVS8 0.03b test. I have to make deck maps, check for bugs, and lots of stuff like that.

No we didn't forget, just put it hold for a while, I was gonna make a topic for it soon with a new deadline for you, seeing how we didn't get many submittions anyway. Remember, competition@efmods.com.
