Ultra Starfire Players Wanted

Postby luftmann on Thu 24 Mar 2022 21:27

I am looking to SM a game using the SFOnline (Strategic Ops) and Vassal engines (Tactical Battles). All Levels of experience are welcome (especially newcomers). I am a veteran SF player from the beginning. I like to help new players learn the game and improve their skills. I'm not one for Chkn sh*t play, ie: bashing the lesser experienced, no fun for me and discouraging for them. If you are not familiar with SFOnline, it does all the tech, system gen, colonization and more. I am happy to walk you through it. Please message me if you are interested.

Howdy luftmann! Welcome to the forum!

I've put a message out to our Starfire Facebook page, a couple fan pages, and on our discord. I don't know how many players still use SFOnline, but hopefully we'll get some bites for you!

This looks interesting, but I have never heard of SFOnline. What is it? A link or similar would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much.

It's an HTML site/app and database that was coded to handle basically every non-tactical aspect of an Ultra Starfire game, back when, though you'd have to ask somebody else for a more detailed story of its origins.

As for the game itself... I'm already in another early-stages campaign, and I'll need to swap between Ultra and Solar in my head with no doubt amusing mistakes as a result, but what the hell, I'm a glutton for punishment.

And it'll let me go ahead with the racial design that's in my head, clawing to get out.

Luftmann, I realize I'm almost a month past the original post, but if you're still looking for players and don't mind an inexperienced (e.g. little Starfire experience and zero SFOnline experience) I'd be interested. Or barring that, if you start another later on!
