History of Sirius.

Post by Seth » Wed Jan 05, 2011 3:52 am

Can anyone (Doju hint?) make a History of 88 Flak roleplay curve? Its hard for me to understand stuff as it is.
Also everyone seems to keep getting roleplay out of the box that never happened(SDS hint?)(Who is Queen Elsa Harris?,Isn't Jacobi dead?,Who's the SDS?).

I would do it, but Flak's roleplay is very hard to understand. What is the year in Sirius right now ? I think Doju posted it was 808 AS. So let's try to imagine what happened in eight years ? I can help you with the story if you wish, Doju.

O_o

Dudes and Dudettes. I know I've been around for a long time, but I'm not the oldest player here. Bountyhunter was here before I was, but he was inactive when I came along.

Still, I'll take up the task, but don't expect it anytime soon. I've been working actively on getting several systems of 88Flak up to snuff (namely, Fighters/Weapons, Reptuation, and Trading) so it might be a while before I get around to it. However, I'll try to make due.

Actually, no. The game was made in 2003 which would equate to a 7 to 8 year period between creation and the current Flak build. So when I stated in the treaty 808AS, it was because this game has been around for 8 years approximately.

Now if we were talking Mod creation time, it'd be 805AS due to the fact this mod was created in 2005 approximately.

But is the definition of a 'year' in Sirius the same as it is over here? Mind you, the planets have different orbits (not ingame, mind you, in-game, the planets orbit like crap), so the time in which a day takes place would probably be either longer or shorter.

Con, I don't know where you are getting that figure from, but it's wrong.

A.S. means After Settlement and it's in Standardized Years. So 800 A.S. is 800 years after the events of Starlancer, which happened to be set in 2160. Also, 0 A.S. pertains to when Liberty (the first ship to make planet-fall) was founded. So Freelancer is set in 800 A.S. and not in 806 like you say.

If you wish to challenge that, I'd be willing to send you the Liberty Faction Overview created by Chris Todd for the game. Also, I'd refer you to several pages which have the relevant data required.

If the year alone proves to be such a problem I wonder how far we'll get with the rest of this...

Just for coolness: 800 flat sounds pretty peachy, but for vanilla it should do.

In what time does that put Flak? 800 plus what - 5, 6 years?

Just take the year of the game, and add the years of 88Flak development. Better, from the release of the game till today.

Yeah, the narrator in the intro cut-screen says that the events in Starlancer happened 800 years ago.
