Topic: Joint Sim idea

I've yet to formally approach BoB with this, but if they see this they can comment.

I was thinking of a spin-off of one of our sims (I'd like it to be Fighter Ops, but it can be anything suitable for spinning off) being based at BoB and the two sims cross-feeding each other.

What do people think?

Re: Joint Sim idea

I can see that as being mutually beneficial and good fun too.

Re: Joint Sim idea

*nod* The original concept for An Baile Ur was actually two joint tabletop roleplaying games in which multiple colonies were formed and so one of the groups would play characters from one colony and the other group controlled characters from another colony.

I think it'd be great to try this - let's see what happens!

I feel like I should be doing a press release that talks about how proud we are to be fostering closer links between our own roleplay community and our friends at Band of Brothers. ;-)

What was the name of that system that we used at DDC?

Re: Joint Sim idea

Just sent this to BoB:

When the chips are down and the bad guys are rattling their sabres, you need something big enough and ugly enough to make them back down...

100,000 tons of nuclear-powered warship is generally a good place to start.

I hope you don't mind the elevator pitch, but I'm currently the Deputy General Coordinator of Phoenix Roleplaying and in charge of a small sim called Fighter Ops (http://www.phoenix-rp.com/viewforum.php?id=53). This sim involves, as the name suggests, fighter pilots and is set in 2015 around a war with Iran.

As our two sites are friends, I'm wondering what you guys might think about a joint sim spinning off from this, revolving around the air wing of an American aircraft carrier (I'm looking at USS Theodore Roosevelt, but that can be changed). It would use NOVA and overlap in plot with the existing sim. If you look at the link, you'll see the kind of thing I'm aiming for - a modern Top Gun if you will.

Of course, all this would only work if the two of us could get the players together to make this work. I hope it can.

What do you guys think?

Kind regards,

No, that was the intended system we were going to use here...

NOVA, I think it is. If this takes off (pun intended) I might need a hand with the tech set up for this.

Re: Joint Sim idea

How's this going, Silent?

Alas, nowhere at the moment. Not even a single response...

Re: Joint Sim idea

Shame. Not even from existing Fighter Ops players?

Nope, not at all.

Re: Joint Sim idea

Were the Fighter Ops players supposed to respond to something? *confused*

Re: Joint Sim idea

No, but there's a proposed joint sim with BoB that you might be interested in.

Silent

Re: Joint Sim idea

Ah, I see. Just wasn't sure if I missed something somewhere.

Just this thread.

Silent, I imagine it'd be worth mentioning this in Fighter Ops' OOC if you haven't already.

Re: Joint Sim idea

Will do.

Re: Joint Sim idea

Zero responses and no reply re the pirate idea. I'll close this thread.

Re: Joint Sim idea

Going to try this again with Ongoing Worlds - they're a rather big site and could handle this.

Re: Joint Sim idea

Awesome.
