That, or the Monday blog would tell you any FedAd progress.

None this week as I was (1) focused entirely on Marines and (2) still recovering from my injuries of the fall two weeks ago.

Any chance of a 2012 release for this?

Not much, given too many other things on the schedule. See the blog Jean just posted.

Just a little bump here. Is there any realistic prospect of seeing this in 2013 given its absence from the 2013 schedule to date? Wishful thinking aside, I mean.

Thanks.

I'm very pleased to hear that, it certainly hasn't been forgotten by me. It's been the most eagerly anticipated (by me) and potential rich release in the Star Fleet Universe since it was announced a few years back.

So is this product dead?

Last post in the thread is circa Dec 2012 and now 2013 is coming to a close with nary a peep. If I'm not mistaken the draft product was in ADB's hands in 2008, some five years ago, it doesn't seem likely that we players will ever get to enjoy it.

Paul, it isn't dead. We just have to work with outside designers and sometimes that means sending drafts back for fixes.

Yes, I can certainly understand. But five years seems a bit overly long for the development cycle of any print product. From what I understand ADB has entered into partnerships with both MJ12 and MGP to produce new products, in addition to the partnership with the FA developer, but while many products have come out for the other partnerships FA is still unreleased despite I believe being submitted first.

As a player it's a bit frustrating since one of the main things FC lacks is a comprehensive campaign system, and the other products from MJ12 and MGP while good are just different ways to play the game or the universe that we already have. They don't actually add any depth to the core game of Federation Commander whereas a campaign system would.

I am also interested in FA being released as soon as possible. My group plays every week and we have been trying to cobble together a campaign system from scratch using F&E, SFB and FC elements. Federation Admiral would be a giant help and well worth whatever money you ask for.

While you're waiting, why not try this out:

As I mention in the thread, the rules are actually fairly simple, but thorough...

Fed Admiral was one of the last products from the era in which we (stupidly) scheduled projects we had never seen from authors we had never worked with on the theory that they would show up on time and ready to print. We learned (oh so painfully) that this was a bad plan and don't do it any more.

FA turned out to be "all wrong, not universe compliant" and basically had to be tossed and done over from blank paper. That took some time, more so because it is a GIGANTIC product, one of the biggest books ever done. We were working it on the basis of "so many hours every friday" but one crisis or another ate all the time for "products not on the immediate schedule". [Remember that I broke my leg in February and more or less missed two entire months of work. Then we had Operation Fetch and the Origins trip.] We're fighing right now to get it back onto the schedule, but such PNOTIS get set aside when we're on "final two weeks lock down" which right now we are for C6 and in the next two months we'll lose two lockdown weeks to FCTM and two or three more to CL48 and one week to the first actual vacation any of us have had in five years. But between now and New Year's there should be four to six "couple of hours on a Friday" time slots it can have.

There was also a decision made to make this system fit equally well with SFB, FC, ACTASF, and Starmada, which actually took maybe two hours of total work and didn't slow the project at all.
