Artemis: The Ships Bridge Simulator - call for crew!

Pages

It's a star trek 6-player bridge simulator thing. It's insanely cool. I got a license so I can host games, clients can connect free. Pyro's going to captain at least one ship (you can have up to 6) tomorrow (Feb 8th) night at 9PM eastern. We'll host on ventrillo, if we have more than one ship we'll divide into channels.

If you are interested in dry-running this with us tomorrow, send me a PM and I will drop you a download link (it's about 100 meg install, with the mod we're running). It takes about 4 minutes to learn, but is a super cool exercise in communication and disparate information. The game can be as long or as short as you like.

Go watch some videos:

Super fun.

Does it support net play now? Last time I tried to get it going we had to use Hamachi to setup a virtual LAN.

Also, this is SO awesome... wish I could commit to playing or find a working mic.

PM sent. I've had an interest in trying one of these out for a while.

I'm busy tomorrow night, but this sounds (and looks based on videos I've seen) like a lot of fun. Someone please record the audio (and video if possible)!

Man, this sounds awesome and ditto what shoptroll said: Promise that you guys will record what happens?

PM sent. This looks like exactly the sort of co-op experience I might enjoy a lot.

PM sent as well. I really want to see how this works.

Subscribing because I've loved this game's concept for months and can't wait to hear about actual playthroughs.

Wish I could join tomorrow, but I'll have to wait till RabbitCon. If you're still on later tomorrow, maybe I can join.

Sounds fun! PM sent.

I played this recently with the Seattle-area Quarter to Three folks. To whet your appetites, here are logs of our first and second sessions.

I would be happy to join the crew, but unfortunately I can't make it tomorrow (Feb. 8th) unless it runs late.

Oh, and I highly recommend that people check out the Unofficial Artemis Wiki.

It does indeed support Net play, pretty much flawlessly. Pyro will host the server. Sending PMs now.

I'd be interested in giving this a try. PM sent.

I'm curious about this idea. I'll have to read up on it.

Ugh... if you guys were doing this yesterday or today, I'd be all over it. But tomorrow is no good. Are you guys going to be doing this again next week? I'll probably be able to swing any night next week and would LOVE to try this out.

Same for me. Hope this will grow into a weekly thing.

PM sent, this looks cool!

We are doing it today, the 8th, at 9 Eastern.

FYI - You can run 6 ships, each with a crew of 5 and a captain, all in the same server, so keep the PMs coming. The minimum to run a ship would be (really) 2, where one person is the captain and helm, and the other person is just weapons, and one person can try and multitask a few consoles at the same time. My guess is tonight we should be able to get 2-3 ships going at least partially full.

For the record, if I'm assigned Comms, I will not be wearing a short skirt.

Then I guess you won't be getting any action from your captain. Your loss.

If we get two or more ships going tonight, I believe COMMS becomes a highly critical station.

Man, I'd really love to try this tonight, but I've been having internet connection issues since yesterday. But I'm feeling optimistic today. PM sent.

So are you doing the de-facto invasion scenario? Are you handcrafting one? Taking one from the public?

TOnights really just the shakedown cruise. I figure we'll fire up a server, see if we can get 1-3 ships loaded in, get into vent, and we'll run around the world a bit and see how it all works.

I think this is a great idea. I don't have time to participate in the shakedown but I eagerly await its results.

Is there a Kobayashi Maru scenario and can I cheat?

You'll get apple juice all over your laptop.

Sounds fun. Pm sent.
