Langley Station



Welcome to Langley Station!



We, here at Langley, are absolutely not your "average RPG". Our primary focus is providing our writers with a shipload (of individual opportunities, including a focus on PC and NPC reactions. As a simm, our focus is on individual character development, coupled collaboration between our writers, and even with other RPG’s. We operate in our own, unique open world system. As a result, we run 'mini-missions' that focus on events related to the fleet, or more frequently, specifically to station development: reflections of an ever-changing set of political and logistical realities in our stellar neighborhood. We strive for each writer to have a firm idea of what their personal story is: and as a Command Team, it's our goal to mediate, and facilitate, the growth and development of our entire crew as writers and as characters.

» THAT virus - what it means for us

Posted on Wed Mar 18, 2020 @ 11:53am by Commander Ronald Hawk in General News

Hello all.

As you are aware there is a current health pandemic spreading across the globe (unless you live under a rock). As much as we are an online space, it does mean it will have some effect on what we do here.

Firstly we anticipate illness among us, and that may have an effect on activity. As such there is no expectation for posting requirements to be met at this time. We simply ask you to attempt to post and tag as much as you usually would. But no fear if you can’t. We get it.

Secondly Kate is currently self isolating and is having to deal with homeschooling as the schools in the Netherlands have closed. As such she is unable to spend as much time as she usually would on Langley. For the time being could you all please send any queries, questions, or issues in my direction rather than in Hera. This will help her to focus on her family and her own health.

Keep well
Ronald Hawk
Executive Officer

Ladies and gentleman of Langley Station.

As of January 1st 2020 I have been appointed the Community-hero position here on Langley, this means that I together with the command team of this station will be in charge of creating non-mission critical events to bolster our post counts and more importantly character development and just plain fun!

That being said I am happy to announce our first event of this year! Valantines day 2020! For this event the we have come up with the idea that each member of the crew goes on a blind date with another crew member and that each crew member sends a ' secret letter' to another crew member, the same way someone would do if they have a crush on someone in the real world. As for the blind dating part create a post together with another crew member where you take your character/NPC to dinner.

At the end of the event the command team if possible chooses two crew members who will vote on which couple deserve the Valantines day 2020 award, now keeping in mind with everyone's personal life and so we don't rush you all, the event shall last until the 28th of February.

Langley Station – January 2020

Sim Updates:
Nothing much changed. Working on a new writing contest for next month and working on reaching our posting requirement of one post a month per player. As I am writing this, we have 9 out of 14, which is a good start.
Didn’t do much to the website, except the usual updates and rearranging the wiki main page a bit. Also added the awards given just before Christmas to the pages and writers accounts.

Crew Updates:
Gained two crew: Director of Civilian Affairs Natsuko Akayama and Fighter Pilot Ranulf MacCloud.
Lost one crew: Engineer Victor.

Not really looking to have a specific position filled, but we have lots of interesting positions waiting, if anyone is interested.

Story Elements:

Continuing as usual. Have made progress on several stories and have much in the works.

Other Information:

After much consideration I’ve decided to remove Langley Station from Obsidian Fleet. I don’t want to go into much details for the why, just that is time for Langley to move on.

I have no hard feeling towards the fleet, just some differences of opinion over the last couple of months. I’ve did my best to help the fleet grow and improve, but I’m at a point where I can’t continue anymore.

Number of Posts: 20
Number of PC’s: 17 (plus one guest)
Number of NPC’s: 109 (plus 3 more in the making)
New applicants: 2
Pending applicants: 0
Number of Saved Mission Post with a tag in the last two weeks: 20

After much consideration I have decided to remove Langley Station from Obsidian Fleet. Without going into to many details, all I will say that it is time for us to move on to another Fleet.

Over the last several months I’ve had a couple of differences of opinion with the fleet. I’ve done my best to assist the fleet with growing and improving, but I’m just at a point where I have to give up and choose another path for Langley Station and myself as CO.

For you as members of Langley Station nothing will change. The website stays at the same place, the command structure will stay the same and our stories are not changing.

I understand you might have some questions about this decision and I invite you to contact me with any questions and concerns.

With Regards,

Kate Banninga
Commanding Officer Langley Station

Hello lady’s and gentlefolk.

As you are hopefully all aware, we have a Rule that states everyone needs to have a completed post at least once a month.

We understand that life can get busy, and that sometimes you have to put Langley on the back burner. However, without your posts there is no Simm.

At the moment a blind eye has been turned to posting figures, partly because of the holiday season, and a blind eye will be turned for the next month. That means that we will next review everyone’s posting numbers on the 16th February. Giving you all a chance to have at least one post by then. At which point we will reach out to those of you that have not posted.

If you feel that reaching the post minimum will be an issue for you, due to creative reasons, then please reach out to either myself or Kate, and we can figure out how to best help you with this.

If the minimum is going to be an issue owing to life getting in the way, then please ensure you have an active LOA, or talk to me or Kate for us to set one up for you.

Sorry to be the nag of the command team once again, but the hope is to get Langley more active, and an even more enjoyable place to be.

Ronald Hawk
Thank you all for hours
