What do you mean? That the ship be the Serenity with whatever map we use or with derelict2?

That we use derelict 2 as the Serenity? If so, sounds good to me.

I mean we be either the Serenity or another one REGARDLESS of the map we use (If that's not a good idea, we can designate each map with a ship). I was thinking of a USS Eternal maybe an Akira/Sabre/Steamrunner class.

I think that we should have a map for every ship. Say that until Kim finishes the Serenity map, we use derelict 2 as the Serenity. Then we can use all other maps as different ships/planets to send awayteams.

I'm telling you right now that my "official" Virtual Game server will be only existing VG ships (Serenity, Columbia, 10to5). The Columbia will always be the Defiant map, but the Serenity can be whatever map we want. I prefer Deralict2 so Simmo and I are making a texture mod for that (with a bit of help from Dogbert).

For Project: Elite RPG, I don't care what ship we use, and I'm tired of being captain every time. I've run out of ideas, and people need to stop fooling around.

BTW: 10to5 map doesn't exist yet, but when it does we'll use that too.

Hehe, I've only been on the server with you once or twice, but I know what you mean, I usually can't come up with good plotlines anymore without a creative and compentent crewman at Tactical, Security, Helm, and Engineering. Some people are good for that, and some are just bad. I don't want to be captain all the time either. THAT'S why we must drag Simmo back from his Dark Nebula, and sit him down on the bridge, and make HIM be captain! Wink

Now that Sporto and Mikey have asked me for the server password, we should be getting some good stuff happening. Sporto's posts are just amazing. The thing is he spends a LOT of time on it, so it might be harder to come up with stuff on the fly. Good writing takes time.

Yes, my last post took an hour to write, the first 10 minutes of which was to figure out what I was even going to talk about.

After I got my multiplayer to work today, I went into a server with Carlos and Logalot. Carlos wanted to be captain while I was the chief engineer (naturally), and Logalot lagged into oblivion. We didn't do much as Carlos's only orders were to follow him around and shoot those floor hatches. What ever!

Hopefully it gets more interesting than that. But hey, I was so happy I got it to work that it didn't bother me much.

We usually decide when we're in the chat room. I don't know of any regular game at a certain time.

Shooting floor hatches messes it up. And Scooter, I just realised, in the texture mod, when it makes the hatch the same texture as the floor, I realised it isnt the same texture using Akira mod.

I figured that would happen. We can either make a separate Serenity texture mod like your Akira mod, or make a patch for the Serenity mod when used with the Akira mod.

Although it doesnt make much of a difference really. Most people dont use it and i wont go shooting the floor tiles, and most times, the textures dont even load for Akira Mod in HM.

I couldn't give very many orders because I kept lagging, it probably wasn't me, it was probably sporto's server

you can't blame the server. Lagging doesn't stop you giving orders at all. *sigh*

I think the ASU network that I'm on has restrictions in place to make sure not too much of the connection is used byany one person. But I'm not sure cause when we host Battlefield 1942 servers, they're extremely fast, even for people not on the network.

My status: I am doing deck 3 right now and so far the MOD looks cool. You will like this ship. Also the bridge and all that is done. I may create quarters for everyone.
