As part of the ongoing overview of the fleet as a whole, here are the monthly figures for total posts for each ship. This summary will give you an idea of how active the ship is on a month-by-month basis.
The first of the charts shows the average number of sims across all ships in the fleet by month, so far this year. So, summing the total number of sims in a month and dividing by the number of ships, we get the figures you’ll see below. Right at the end of December came the fantastic news that we were launching the USS Darwin-A, followed by the news that the USS Avandar would sadly be decommissioned. This meant that throughout the month we still had 9 ships active at any one time, which is how the December average was calculated.
Our next chart gives the number of sims for each ship over the course of December. As the nights drew in and the weather got colder for a large proportion of the fleet (this is the time of year where a lot of us get jealous of our Australian members), people took the chance to huddle down in the warm and get typing, which meant more activity on many of the fleet’s ships!
