What can you expect in the coming weeks?
1. Ships. You will be able to build a fleet soon.
2. A use for oogp to upload custom images.
3. Images for your injured and dead character.
For the staff... You are getting some new tools. Stay tuned.

|Good News Everyone! We now have a presence on IRC, I made us a channel on the Sorcery server, that's irc.sorcery.net, and the channel is #BFS.|
Remember people, be sure to invite your friends to come and play!
|Latest changes... You may find bugs
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2013-11-10 13:35:46
|I have been implementing a few changes to the game itself. I have re-coded the original spawn tools, which work amazing wonders! So you will see at the moment that there is an inventory Tab to your left which contains a Weapons link. Yes, Weapons inventory has been successfully implemented. Weapons do not function yet, but they will eventually .|
Coming tonight will be Inventory spawning and possibly ship spawning. At the current moment, because of how the travel system is done, all your inventory will basically follow you and remain at your location as long as you do. Rest assured, at this time noone can pilfer your belongings. However, once we developed a more functional movement system, your items will need to be placed at a location. When it comes to that, you will be allowed to choose the location. If you miss your chance to choose that location, all your items drop to the location your character is in. Ships/capital ships will be at your location/in orbit depending on its type if you do not set its location to drop to when the time comes.
Now I know that most of you are waiting for the items and weapons that were supposed to spawn a while ago. I will not be spawning those for you yet, but you should be aware of whats going on and no doubt when everyone begins seeing the weapons and inventory links, there were going to be many questions as to where those items were.
Another change on the forums is that now the moderators can assign rewards for the RP's. I know some have had trouble doing so, which makes me think there may some bugs in the system. So please, if you do not get your reward for a roleplay, be patient, we are still working out the bugs.
There are a few other things I would like to implement by this week, but I may be getting over-ambitious, so we will see how that goes.
|You may post on the forums again
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2013-11-09 17:17:19
|OK, I did my upgrade to the forum. You may now start or reply to posts. My update was mostly behind the scenes and to the database, however the changes I have made will immensely benefit the community as a whole. |
|Forum tool fixing...
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2013-11-09 14:28:21
|Until further notice, I would like to ask anyone, including staff members, to refrain from posting on the forums(New topics or replies). I am working on an issue that would make RolePlaying a little more steady and easier to program additional features. If you must communicate with each other, please use PM.|
This should be fixed shortly. Thank you for your patience.

|I apologize for my absence. In the past months my family has had three deaths and a temporary job layoff for me. Things are slowly getting back to normal. I will be updating the game again in the coming weeks. I thank the admin team for their efforts and they will be hearing from me over the weekend.|
|Talibar still Absent
By: Alexis Vikram , on: 2013-10-11 17:30:10
|Even though the creator, and founder of this game is still on a undetermined leave of absence, I still highly encourage everyone to continue posting in the faction-based RP's occurring. The reason being, if we can have all of the factions developed for when Talibar does return, it will be made easier on him in implementation of new features. I still want to see this game succeed, it has a potential to be extremely unique and engaging in ways other Rp forums have not been able to accomplish. |
Also, keep posting ideas. I still run the Dark Force user, and Planetary management side of things. Even though I do not have the tools to implement anything myself, I am looking for idea's that can help create an atmosphere that everybody enjoys. I am keeping record of all ideas and will make sure to inform Talibar of your contributions in his absence, something he will likely reward you generously with.
|Origin Faction RP's are Live!
By: Alexis Vikram , on: 2013-09-04 13:13:41
|The Beginning Faction RP's are up and live! If you intend to join one of the four starting factions (Hapes, Empire, Rebel Alliance, or Blacksun) start posting in the appropriate thread. This is a great way to introduce your character in the realm of galactic politics. Rp'ing in one of these four threads is highly encouraged if you intend to acquire a leadership role. |
With Talibar gone exp will not be distributed, as he is the only one who has access to the experience distribution tool. Upon his return he will likely distribute experience accordingly.
For now get to Roleplaying, again this is a great way to introduce your character, and any ambitions your character has.
Let us thank Srota for taking the initiative and setting these up.

|I have begun work on implementing all of the approved ships. So far I have managed to record all of the Capital class, and Freighter class Ships. However due to technical difficulties I was not able to record any of the Fighter class ships. |
Of the ships that are implemented, I have been able to record most of the statistics for those. Some stats are still needing to be balanced and or implemented. Images will also need to be uploaded.
Pending Talibar's approval of these ships, the progress for the starter ships is going extremely well. Hopefully we will see the implementation and spawning of these ships within the next week or so.
While you guys are waiting, the team highly encourages you to continue suggesting ships. Remember, any ships that you suggest that become approved will be yours as soon as the ships are spawned.
|Items and Weapons are almost here
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 2013-08-23 09:05:38
|I am sorry for the delay. With a 21 month old baby at home and a full time job, it takes a little time to get things done.|
So, items and weapons (The initial ones) are implemented in the database and so are the images I have. The snag I am having at the moment is spawning the items. It keeps spawning them rather than putting it into your inventory :/ .
Its a simple fix, but I gotta clean up the universe a little bit as there are free flowing weapons every where and I need to assign everyone their stuff. Bear with me. Once my baby goes to sleep, it should take no more than an hour to finish up everything. Thank you for the patience!
