Re: Featured Sim Update

It's been a "New" Sim since October; it will only get two weeks at the top now, then not appear until this round

I don't remember if that was the intention at the time or not, but I'll re-roll if people want.

Re: Featured Sim Update

I don't mind the randomness, but it was supposed to feature all the existing sims. Not a big deal to me.

Re: Featured Sim Update

25 gives us The Longest Journey.

Re: Featured Sim Update

15 gives me Stargate Beta Site.

Re: Featured Sim Update

16 gives us Pacific Rim.

Re: Featured Sim Update

Why is the A-team still considered a "new" sim, hasn't it been around since November?

I'm still of the opinion we should get through all the existing sims when we started featuring back in June, before showcasing newer sims a "second" time (such as Pacific Rim).

Re: Featured Sim Update

We have had several closures since June and I think the new sims should get two cracks of the whip.

Once Harry Potter is up, I will move The A-Team.

Re: Featured Sim Update

On second thoughts, Jason, I have sent you an email.

Re: Featured Sim Update

It was established in this thread that new sims get two or three months (we were a little unclear, but I think it settled on two). Per this post it opened on 27th October. Since that's now four and a half months, so one-or-two and a half months overdue, I've removed the [New] tag from it.

Re: Featured Sim Update

Ok, did a little investigating. Here's what I found:
Of the current sims (besides those not currently "New"), these are the ones that haven't been featured:
Odyssey
Dark Cometh*
Canis Pacifica*
Triple First
Fighter Ops
Wing Commander
Zombies
Radioactive
Forgotten Realms

*Dark Cometh and Canis Pacifica both were created after we started the Feature sim, I believe.

Besides the two Canis sims, these sims were left off "Round 1". Since we have started featuring sims after the start of "Round 1", these sims should be featured first, and then also included in Round 2.

Invisec has been featured twice already, so it should be eliminated from "Round 2" already. The same goes for "new" sims that have been featured already, such as Canis UK and Pacific Rim.

An interesting fact:
6 closed sims were featured (obviously before they closed): West Star, Triple Zero, Matrix, Kingdom for Stage, Beyond The Veil of Truth

Re: Featured Sim Update

Thanks. Can someone do the roll, or at least the admin for next Monday, please? I'll be on LOA.

Re: Featured Sim Update

I think there is a slight correction as to the 6 sims that got featured only to close... Mach Idol was another featured and closed one.

Re: Featured Sim Update

Hmm, I don't see it listed on this thread, but it's possible Silent didn't record every time the featured sim changed. Was the sim "Featured" or "New"? I didn't record any of the "New" sims, because it was relatively easy to figure out what started after June 2013.

Out of the remaining 7 sims, I rolled a 8-sided die and came up with a "5". Counting down the list (and leaving out the Canis sims for reasons already stated), that gives us "Zombies". I may or may not be around on Monday, but if I am I can switch it out.

Re: Featured Sim Update

I recorded all of them here. Thanks for your help, Jason.

Re: Featured Sim Update

I've now updated these.

Re: Featured Sim Update

A 3 gives us Wing Commander!

Re: Featured Sim Update

If you were using the list I had, Wing Commander was #4:
Odyssey
Triple First
Fighter Ops
Wing Commander
Zombies
Radioactive
Forgotten Realms

But a simple re-order works to correct that:

Odyssey
Triple First
Wing Commander
Fighter Ops
Zombies
Radioactive
Forgotten Realms

Re: Featured Sim Update

Fair enough. Thanks. We're going to be going to a new list soon anyway.

Re: Featured Sim Update

A 3 gives us Fighter Ops!

Re: Featured Sim Update

Only four left.

Odyssey
Triple First
Radioactive
Forgotten Realms

A 2 gives us The Triple First.

Re: Featured Sim Update

Only 3 left.

Odyssey
Radioactive
Forgotten Realms

1 gives us Odyssey.

Re: Featured Sim Update

With only two left, I rolled 1 and got Radioactive

Forgotten Realms will be the final featured sim in this round and I'll let the new GC do the next lot.

Re: Featured Sim Update

Let me just say, you're keeping on top of this is very much appreciated, Silent.

Re: Featured Sim Update

I've now put FR here... sorry this was a day late.

Re: Featured Sim Update

So I tidied up the New sims that were overdue. Perhaps we should get back to the featuring of sims?
