    Happy Hour: Gamedev
    Greetings Citizens! This week’s episode of Happy Hour we’re going to shake things up a bit. While Happy Hour will always be the casual hangout with developers, staff and the community to showcase Star Citizen, we’re excited by the chance to expand our horizons with this week’s show. For the first time ever, LIVE viewers of the show will have the opportunity to directly affect the creation of an asset for Star Citizen! As you know, Star Citizen will need lots of star systems, and those systems will need planets, and those planets will need inhabitants. In this Friday’s Happy Hour: Gamedev, Character Art Director Josh Herman will create the concept of a new creature LIVE with direct input from you, the backers. This is your chance to be a part of the creative process live, as we’ll take suggestions from the chat, and put important decisions up to vote. What creature will you help Josh create this Friday on Happy Hour? Tune in LIVE this Friday at 12pm PST on twitch.tv/starcitizen. https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/3/thread/happy-hour-gamedev

    Yep, nothing to hide. We are transparent about the processes in this org , no need to hide behind closed doors. Also I honestly don't think it's even bad, people move on. It's unfortunate that they were such vital members and pillars of the community but the core of TA is still here. This post wasn't to ADMONISH them, it was to highlight to loyal TA members that what makes Tactical Advance , Tactical Advance, is still very much alive. 
    I agree with the other posters that we should move on , but it was important for us to not gloss over it like it was of no consequence.
    It hurt, but we are still here, and we aren't going anywhere but space.

    Hmm, fair point. Certainly is a limitation with the service regarding that example. I  do have high expectations for Spectrum, though. Here's hoping it shapes up to be exactly what organizations and players need for SC.

    I'd love to have discord with voice , authorizations, design and integration capabilities of teamspeak  .. when it happens I'd jump to discord (providing it still will be free) .  For now it is a great solution for small organizations w/o need of coordinated actions between structured divisions .. hopefully in the future it will evolve into something bigger and better.
    Simple test to do:
    Imagine you have four squads:
    1. Mining ( multiple ships, some of those capable of fighting )
    2. Exploration ( checking space for more mining in the area )
    3. Military patrol ( tasked with immediate protection of mining and exploration in the area )
    4. Emergency response team ( military + medics + repairs + ... )  responsible for the sector
     
    Leads of Mining and Exploration squads shall have :
    - communication channel to the corresponding group members (1)
    - communication channel to each other (2) and
    - to military patrol lead  (3)
    Military patrol lead shall have communication channel to the officer on duty of emergency response team (4) ... etc.
     
    This communication (voip) structure is easily solved within teamspeak by whisper lists ... unfortunately it is not possible to solve it at all in discord as of now.

    I agree with you both as a heavy discord user myself however for now it suits our needs as an Org and hopefully we wont have to wait too long for spectrum to be complete...There are some ideas floating about for a integrated chat module with TeamSpeak I personally have no idea what those will look like as I'm not a developer but we are lucky to have some who say it's possible!
    I will say though that if all else fails and spectrum takes a backseat on CiGs radar we should look again at implementing a TA discord to run parallel with TeamSpeak like most of the other big Organisations do!

    Yeah, I don't think I have used TS since I was in a BF1942 clan. It does feel very dated.
  11. RichEdmonds added a post in a topic Opinions on Discord   

    I'm a massive fan of Discord, use it on a number of servers. Haven't used TeamSpeak since before 3.0, which was prior to 2007 I think? Back in the VoIP war days! I'm of the opinion that TS (and older solutions) have stalled while newer services and deployments take a modern approach to communication within groups.

    I couldn't agree more!!!

    Sorry I had a chat with my keyboard .. it wasn't her .. it was her auntie
  15. RichEdmonds added a post in a topic Greetings   

    I overheard you disliked it and decided to pop into your home and bring it to a loving home.  'Tis a fine keyboard!
    I'm stealing everyone's belongings and decided to register an account here to brag about it all! There's a part of everyone on my desk. (This is starting to sound a little BDSM...  )
     
    Edit: Cheers for the welcome everyone.

    It isn't normally like this here, we are just washing some laundry in public at the moment. While it isn't pretty right now, I somehow think it is better for potential applicants to see the good and the bad.
  18. Roy added a post in a topic Lets address the elephant in the room   

    I believe everyone who registered is considered part of community (not necessarily part of the org). While we have nothing to hide, I agree with Rich - there is no good reason to burden people who just came with some stories about past. Hence my suggestion - let this topic sink
  19. Roy added a post in a topic Greetings   

    Welcome on-board Rich ... but hey .. why do you have my keyboard
  20. Drakin added a post in a topic Lets address the elephant in the room   

    Hmm... not really sure. I know that the "TACTICAL ADVANCE ORGANIZATION" section is only visible to people who are signed in, since I just tested that by signing out and it was not visible. But not all people who have forum logins are necessarily members of the org, so I can't say for sure that it is restricted only to members.
