Post totals for November 2013

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. Unfortunately a number of ships reported real-world issues that have afflicted their crews this month, taking quite a large toll on the number of sims produced by the fleet as a whole. Whilst sims were still flowing, they were doing so at a much lower than normal rate, as reflected by November’s fleet-wide average.

Our next chart gives the number of sims for each ship over the course of November. As mentioned earlier, there has been a marked drop almost across the board, with only the Avandar and Vigilant increasing their total since last month. The main reason for this drop appears to be a rise in real-world problems cutting into players’ ability to sim, which will hopefully prove to be a temporary situation that will clear itself up quickly and allow the fleet to return to – if not exceed – it’s usual levels of simming.

Post Totals for October 2013

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. As the fleet settles into it’s new simming home on Google Groups, we can see an increase in the average for the month of October as people get properly acquainted with how things work on the new system.

Our next chart gives the number of sims for each ship over the course of October. Overall, each ship has maintained it’s usual level of activity, though there is overall a general rise in activity levels as denoted by the rise on the fleet average – no ship has produced an abnormally high or low level of output this month which could distort the average. As our simmers continue to settle into Google Groups, we hope to see this level of simming continue to rise as the year draws to a close.

Post Totals for September 2013

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.

This first chart 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. This month, we saw a drop in the average number of sims per vessel across the fleet, which may be due to the technical difficulties which continued to cause problems for almost all ships.

Our next chart shows the number of sims from each ship for the month of September. Overall, most ships are about where they usually are in terms of numbers, or down somewhat from their typical level. Since no vessel is showing markedly higher than normal levels of simming as in the last couple of months, the Fleetwide average has not been pulled up by those figures. Hopefully, with the changeover in the mailing lists we are using, those technical problems that have been such a curse of us recently will no longer be a concern, and we’ll be seeing a rise in simming totals as we get settled into our new home on Google Groups.

Post Totals for August 2013

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.

This first chart 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. This month, we saw continued increase in the average number of sims per vessel across the fleet, setting a new high for the year to date. A good sign as both summer and the Fleetwide Plot Arc continue, even in the face of some of the technical hurdles thrown in our path during August, and a trend we hope to see continue for a long time to come!

Our next chart shows the number of sims from each ship for the month of August. Overall, a number of ships are either a little down or about where they usually are in terms of numbers, but the Apollo have continued their higher-than-normal output from July. The Embassy take pole position for August, however, with a total of 398 sims for the month of August, with the Vigilant not that far behind with 371.

Post Totals for July 2013

Continuing the look at how the fleet as a whole is doing, 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.

This first chart 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. This month, we saw a definite increase in the average number of sims per vessel across the fleet, which is a promising sign as summer progresses.

This second chart shows the number of sims from each ship for the month of July. Overall, most ships are either a little down or about where they usually are in terms of numbers, but an outstanding month for the Apollo definitely rises above the rest with 357 posts for July – a definite help in bringing up our monthly average for the fleet as a whole.

We asked FltCapt. Jaxx what happened in July that launched the Apollo’s numbers into the stratosphere, so far above the rest of the fleet. Here’s what he had to say:

It was an unusual month for the Apollo. Whenever we start a new mission we see a surge in sims for that month, typically around 200. Our past mission has been the most interesting to date. A hostage situation developed, trapping the entire command staff. It left the junior officers to work on ending the conflict. There was so much going on, and so much creativity that every player simmed full time, with roughly 60% of the ship simming 20+ times. It was such an interesting plot that people could not wait to answer their tags. The crew did a phenomenal job, and I am looking forward to August!

Sims count for March

SimAvgMar13

This data represents the average sims per vessel across the fleet for each month of the year so far. Some ships will sim quite a bit higher or lower, but this represents the average.
