As part of an ongoing overview of the whole fleet, we’d like to present for you the posting totals and simming trends for and through December. These number will give you some idea of how active our ships are month-to-month, as well as how the whole fleet is doing.
As we’d hoped, December finished out the year strongly with an average gain of about 15 sims per ship over November! Of course, the actual numbers look at little different from the averages, and again a few ships made huge gains (of over 15 sims or more), including Apollo, Columbia, the Duronis II Embassy, Garuda, and Gemini. Atlantis and Victory turned in their usual strong numbers, and Constitution made a small gain over November’s total to post a solid, stable total for the month.
Only January of 2014 exceeded December in terms of total sims — and that’s without including our newest simming installation, Starbase 118 Ops and the USS Albion, launched just before the new year with Leo (Commander Leo Handley-Page) in command. Ops and Albion look like they’re going to be a simming powerhouse, so you may expect the January 2015 numbers to increase again for what may be our fourth consecutive month of growth!
