This a little topic I'm going to do about every other week, mentioning cool stuff happening in the world of roleplaying! Today's happeing is Luke's new map, the USS Keystone. This is a map comaprable to the 10to5 or the original Nostromo, except it's more of a science ship compared to the 10to5's military purpose(Errr.... I think). I've played a preliminary copy of this map, and I am heavily impressed. This map and the Nostromo Refit signify ships desgined almost exclusively for RPing, with armories and power-ups placed where they would be on a ship. Anyway, I'm not going to release any copy of the map, after all, It's not done, but if you really want to see it, check it out, ERP should be releasing screenshots soon. And expect it to be finsished in a few days, tops. Grin

I'm not sure what the 10to5's purpose was, but I don't think it was supposed to be military.

Mmmm.... Just an assumption, It seems to be heavily armed and it doen't have a science lab, It was kinda a bad example Sad.

I don't know about heavily armed. More armed than a shuttle yes.

And the no science lab thing was an oversight. We didn't realize until later that we should have had one, but then the ship was decommissioned.

That was even after the upgrade, lol. Initially, we didn't even have a sickbay or holodeck,

Welll, I got the BASIC work done on it. It has two decks, 10 quarters, A science lab, A Sickbay, An armory, Holodeck, Transporter room, Bridge, Confrance room, Captains ready room, CArgo bay, Engineering (including a pretty darn cool homemade warpcore), And a messhall.

I'm gonna make a brig, but I've got no idea how to make/activate Force-Fields, if anybody can post, or has a VERY descriptive reference. I need it.

P.S. I'm gonna take some screenies ETC... Later though, its midnight here...

The 10to5 was a small craft, a bit bigger than a runabout. It was designed to be able to take on minor tasks, but not be able to do the full role of major diplomatic tasks or combat missions. It has two torpedo launchers (1 fore 1 aft), and two phaser arrays (1 fore 1 aft). The 10to5 was not decomissioned, it is docked at Starbase 460, currently without a mission.

You n00b! Making everyone open the console to play the map. Should have made an ARENA script to put it in the Create Match menu.
