Inner Core Survival: Mepther System

Sun, Jul 19th 2020, 8:00 am - 10:00 am

  • Ajay started a new event:


    "Across the savage skies and through the fissures in the fields,
    The rumble of the engines and the trundle of the wheels,
    Through hell and horror trudge and yet their spirits never yield.
    Will they sing of these forsaken pawns of war?"
    -Miracle Of Sound, "Pawns of War".

  • Dammit. Looks like I'll have to shift it to either 8 am again or 2 pm.


    I hoped to run this event at a slightly later time so the people who did not have a chance to take part in the previous Survival could participate in this one.

  • Thanks. Any other proposals to consider?


    (EDIT: This was directed to everyone looking forward to participate)

  • 10:00am server time is 03:00am on american continent. Just to say....
    And not sure how many people have time to play at 10am in europe either.
    5 to 6pm in europe and 12pm to 1am in america seems like a good time to get all peeps together.

  • seems like a good time to get all peeps together.

    Except me since it's what, 2 to 3 am for me.

  • Two words: Eastern Siberia.


    I'll do some tests in regards to time now, but I'm thinking to either move it to 4-5 pm.

  • Can do a hour earlier but there's a server restart in the way. Can do 4 am ST (or earlier) but European players won't like it and I want Wanderer on board for this, besides there's a probability you'll have to start without me.

    I'm... beginning to have... a terrible feeling some doubts about this mission...


    Okay. The last mission's timings worked and I don't think I have time considering other options. 8 am ST it is.

    Changed the title of the thread from “Inner Core Survival: Mepther System (Sun, Jul 19th 2020, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm)” to “Inner Core Survival: Mepther System (Sun, Jul 19th 2020, 8:00 am - 10:00 am)”.
  • That went great, thanks to Ajay for organization!:salutes


    Here are the required pictures from the deploying unit:

  • INTERCEPTED AUDIO LOG:


    "So what is the deal with those things? I just... drop them off and that?"

    "Yes. In fact, if they work like intended, they will need nothing else. In fact, you can even have someone else do that. We have taken thorough care to counter any sort of foul play with them. They have a rather advanced neural net - our IT and cybernetics specialists outdid ourselves with this one. The drones will only need some time to deploy and get their bearings. They will take active and passive measures to avoid detection, and will even use Repair Buoys for self-maintenance - all without any input from human operators! All you will have to do would be to collect intel and watch for irregularities. They use a hyperspace-based transmitter for this... in fact, we also have you to thank for it. You see... this is the Project SANRAI borne fruit. Remember when during an attack of the last station, the Baneblade launched a teleporter-based boarding strike?"

    "I knew they retrieved something from the station."

    "They did. The transmitter uses design cues from nanoscale warp drive. Likewise, we used some design cues from the control system in the drones's neural net. Do not worry. We fully understand how it works. In addition, we used records from your flights - the records of your behavior as well as that of the others' - to train the neural net. In other words, this is a fruit of what you've done. Worry not, I will make sure this thing gets limited to Inner Core Conquered territory - and perhaps Gladius and Gurm."

    Greetings.

    This time, I tasked one of my fellow pilots with drone deploying duties, while I controlled the operation from the board of the CNS K-719. Everything went smoothly, and now we also have an intelligence network in Methper.

    So... Thanks everyone for participating? Really. It was the best birthday party I could hope for!

    The rewards, well... Sorry, but I didn't exactly plan this thing to have a reward other than "fun times". IDK, I had tons of fun.


    I'm not sure if there'll be another one. Too tired, and I fluffed hard with the timing.
