In the second week of August, the UFOP: SB118 fleet was delighted to welcome the addition of the USS Avandar to our numbers, recommissioned under the command of Captain Della Vetri. How did this affect the fleets simming for the month? Let’s take a closer look!
The fleet’s total post count and average sims per month remained relatively static from July to August. Most ships maintained similar post totals to those of the previous month, with a small number of vessels having more dramatic swings in either direction. For example, after taking command of the Columbia in the very last days of July, Commander Brek’s turn in the centre chair is off to an auspicious start, with an impressive 235 sims posted this month, an increase of nearly 100 from the previous month!
Our most prolific sim site this month was the Duronis II Embassy, submitting an amazing 267 sims during August.
For the first time this year, the overall pattern diverges from the one seen in 2013. Instead of the increase we saw for August in 2013, this year the post count for the fleet levelled off and was almost identical to July’s. Three of our ships managed to break the feat of 200 sims for the month, and only two had post totals below 125.
What will September bring? Tune in next month to find out, and in the meantime, don’t forget to keep up with our stories on the fleet’s sim archive!
