  1. From the sounds and looks of it you do not apply. You're judged from a distance and informed "Hey you're allowed to make a G&T" or not told anything at all
  2. Following the alleged reports of the Barachian-Nine this dossier is being handed to help fledgling colonies to deal with the dangers of the Space. In this guide we’ll start with what is now dominating the news: Asteroids, Meteors & Meteoroids or Near Planetary Objects (NPOs). Asteroids, Comets & Meteors are a common occurrence. Using Earth standards, a 4m large NPO will hit the Earth on average once a year with an entry of 3kt of TNT. NPOs with a power of 16kt, the same as the bomb Little Boy, will hit the Earth every 5 years. The reason these are of no consequence is because of Air Burst causing them to explode at a much lower energy level than they entered. Asteroids higher than a 4 on the Torino scale are likely to be intercepted and destroyed by a Federal vessel. Of course, not every asteroid will be caught by the highly advanced equipment, these are likely to be those minor asteroids and comets. An impacting NPO of approximately 11 kilometres or higher would be a colonial equivalent of an extinction event. The Chicxulub asteroid was between 10 & 15 and wiped out the dinosaurs, causing a planetary winter from all the projecta sent into the atmosphere. To put into Numbers. If an 11km asteroid made out of Sandstone - A porous rock similar to some kinds of bug materia - hit the city of London at 17km/s and with an impact angle of 45 degrees, after 16.7 minutes an Earthquake would hit Nigeria with a 9.7 rating on the Richter scale. An accurate image of the common idea of a NPO. Asteroid 2015 TB145 in the Sol System. If a 32km diameter meteor hit a planet with a similar composition to London in the impact zone, it is likely the planet would cease to be a colony. At 6378km, or the radius of the Earth bar slight differences, it would cause a 10.6 Earthquake 21.3 minutes after the impact, just over 5 hours, the blastwave would hit with 81.8mph winds striking the area. Its impact energy would be 8.88 x10^8 MT of TNT, have a 236km large crater and vaporize and melt the area around it for 5610 miles cubed. A shortened version for that would be that the colony, if on an Earth sized or smaller planet, would be wiped out. Any survivors would have to contend with significant global cooling, most likely being cut off initially from the debris bloating the atmosphere with dust, and have planetary fires from the fireball and thermal radiation. The good news? The chances of one striking the planet are one in every 850,000,000 years for the average planet. And with picket ships and orbital defences, the chances of these beasts hitting you are exceptionally small. A handy image to learn the main differences for budding astronomers looking up at their skies. That is all for Near Planetary Objects and the misconceived threat to a colony. Next in this list will be the threat that the Atmosphere may cause to your fledgling colony. Enabling you to determine if you should take the gas mask off or not.

    With regards to the Chromium branch; It apparently breaks a fair bit more than PAC, however as it is usually the most noticeable thing on the server, that was what most people picked up on. @Argon has more knowledge on this though.

    LOA from Server

    Burn out from Server mixed with significant spikes in stress from Work. Likely still be around, especially on Steam, but less activity on the Server should be expected.

    Ryu's got it. There's no real application process. New Admins are acquired by Xal on the basis of need and shown capabilities of Admin qualities. This is why you'll see that a lot of the NCO's / Division leadership are Admins as it's one of the number 1 ways of showing you've got what it takes to be an Admin. Of course, there are always exceptions (I was made Admin with another person as I was on, there was a need for EU Admins and Xal was drunk.) but most of the time, the end result of who becomes an Admin, or who stays admin, is up to Xalphox.

    [Fixing what we already have] Part 1 of 6

    The issue with marauders currently is that there was an element of power creep on them for the past year or so turning them from 1 marauder has the strength of 2 MI on a drop in terms of balance, to now 1 marauder can probably wipe out the Grant in a pvp scenario Childish bandwagoning that is a hate for them because of muh pfc is far from helpful. Regarding the above post I would strongly disagree with the idea that reaching a certain rank means you've been around a certain amount of time. A clearcut example of this would be where an individual has gone from Private to corporal in 24 ooc hours. This would mean overnight that character has aged weeks if not months. The SST universe is drastically different from the principles aimed at reaching a certain rank after a certain time. Rico in the film goes from fresh Recruit to Lieutenant in a year at a most. In my eyes The thing that will promote marauder-infantry interaction is an active set of marauders interacting with Infantry and the Infantry not sitting there like "Look at those veterans and people who can snap my spine with a flick of their wrist while they're in their suits. What a bunch of faggots" Also posting off phone is horrific. Xal please make this easier

    Why I'm Transferring out of Marauders.

    Following from Colesion As for fun in the division, I haven’t been in the division for about a month and a half now, but had been in it for over a year (Since Omega) and the first Marauder to get NCO (self-jerking emoji)I can say there has been a significant lack of Interdepartmental work with Marauders beyond the Implants which the marauders want. There’s been little to no enforcement of Marauders going to the bay after drops to get their suits repaired as an example I can outright state, as well as the belief that Marauders are NCO second, as opposed to every other division where they’re NCO first. A lot of the extent I have seen on drops between Marauders and Engineers are when the Engineers come up to the marauders asking if they want field patchups for the equiv of a Medic doing patch ups and gaining extra hp. As for how communication is done. I tend to agree with you in regards to that communication is not done on a equal standpoint. There’s little to no trust in those not CO, as various other members who have left marauders can likely attest to. I also agree that it is infeasible to censor who can and who cannot talk about marauders. People talk, and to punish that is, in a blunt statement, retarded. For what Optic put: I can confirm seeing Colesion do quite a bit of activity, but again because most of it it covers the same elements of my own becoming of XO for Engineers. And it can be best not to throw stones in a glass house. For the Hazy Post. The breaching element was stated at this last admin meeting that it was not from upon high from Xal. I have audio logs if required due to playing Crusader Kings 2. As for creating passive. Is it now a thing to punish people for trying to create passive? A lot of what occurs doesn’t make sense, but we still allow it. I’ll agree on this part. While I believe Lynch has been outside the circle to know up to date knowledge on Marauders, however it is contradictory to state that someone who is no longer in the division immediately loses all information on the division whatsoever. If it’s a simple question, anyone can answer it. Last part of the first post. I feel it rather contradictory to state that you want them to grow in power, and then stating that an individual who has repeatedly caused marauders to become overpowered and collapse, is to help balance them. For the second Post: I can state emphatically that that is a falsehood. Colesion wasn’t in the running for XO in the beginning. If this would like to be disputed by yourself Hazy, I can provide logs, but I felt that it would be unprofessional to produce private messages without an entirely valid reason. I’m not going to address that posted by Boland or the response, as this post is long enough.

    Unfortunately due to a OOC reputation, at present your application has been declined. This decision can change if OOC reputations are changed and a reapplication may be accepted.
