Kerry Drake, the person who set-up, started, and oversaw his campaign announced on the discussion board back in September of of last year that his doctor has diagnosed him as having Thyroid Cancer. He was scheduled for some intense treatments and surgery and therapy. His follow-up posts indicated that he would be taking some time off the board to focus on gettign through this ordeal and that this campaign (among other items) would be on hold until further notice.

Kerry still posts from time to time, but with nowhere near the frequency he used to post. If there's enough interest in an online campaign - I'd suggest someone else start a new one up.

I don't think Kerry would mind if anyone used the rules he came up with. In fact I think he'd love the idea of something he came up with being used by others. I was one of the original players when CC started and I had fun before I had to drop out for personal reasons.

If his website is still up, there's nothing stopping folks from starting a campaign of their own. It would certainly garner more interest online and encourage release of the TA and BA ships,( The SB card, if nothing else Smile.

Just my 50 cents.

Please feel free to use to anything I thought up to begin a new campaign. Drop me an e-mail if you need any materials from me.

Personally I had a blast while the campaign was running, and if a commander's choice style campaign was to start back up again I would be totally down with it.

Ok, well I would be happy to get the ball rolling then. I am in my last semester of grad school, but with some exceptions I think I can swing the time. Ok well we have Sweeper, me... guzzoid? Commodore Mendez?

I guess we can handle quite a few. I don't see any reason we couldn't handle more then 4 players, if we can get enough ships in the client we could handle each of the major races yes?

Ok so that leaves room for the following players:

Fed
Klinks
Kzinti
Romulans
Gorn

And a Orion for hire player

Does that sound right? And if we were able to get more of the Tholian/Selt suppliment into the client we could handle them as well.... a campaign seems like as good a reason as any to include them

Sounds good. BTW, I just converted the SFB Defsats definition to FC. It's Squad level only, but it can be converted to Fleet simply but cutting half the boxes out. What I'd really love to see are the LTTs make an appearance. It would certainly make transporting EPs and setting up bases easier, but the 3 month rule is in effect. *sigh*

Oh yeah, Sir_Krotar has been playing FC with me online as he's been getting burnt-out on Tourney as well.

He's doing it partly to see how well the game handles campaigns, (which would make him a good person to invite), and also because he's somehow been roped into running a FC online tourney in the unforseeable future, (we're still trying to figure that one out Smile ).

We've been beating the client up to see what's working and what still isn't.

The most glaring issues are: Shield Reinforcement is ignored and will have to be done manually. Photons overloaded at the point of firing wont properly track the energy. (I have a suspicion that fast loaded PL-Fs have the same issue. Can't tell if Directed Damage ignores skipped damage points or not.

Listed under annoying are: While they have CAs from Booster 0, The Hydrans, Lyrans and ISC don't have their weapons listed, so they're hard to use without each player having a copy of the rules. The Tholian Web Caster/Generator isn't in there yet either.

Basically, while play is very possible and viable on the client, there are some things we'd have to keep an I eye on until they're fixed. Hopefully, more play on the client will convince Paul, (Andromedan), to work on it it Smile.

Tholians and Seltorians should probably not be included in a campaign, even if the ship defs become available. Tholian Web makes Tholians just plain broken as a major race, and Selts are weak except when fighting Tholians.

However, I think that Tholians would be just dandy as an NPC empire. IIRC in the original campaign the centre of the map had a major planet that was neutral. Maybe the big planet at the centre of the map could be owned by Tholians, making capturing it a major operation (but possibly worth the effort).

P.S. As I now have an internet connection, I would like to play. In order of preference:

Seltorian (Yes, I said they're weak, and there are few defs, I'm just a sucker for the bugs)
Orion Mercenary (If allowed)
Klingon
Kzinti
Gorn
Federation
Romulan (I'm really weak on cloak)
