Ausmonauts Action Report 2018-02-11

Introducing the Ausmonauts Action Report, a regular blog entry to provide members with highlights from within the Ausmonauts and the games we follow.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

With more and more people joining us for our efforts back in SWTOR, the Ausmonauts have decided to open up recruiting again for our dark side guild the Imperial Ausmonauts. If you are interested in joining us in a galaxy far far away then jump onto Discord and leave a message in the Ausmonauts chat channel with "Looking to join #StarWars".

At the moment the guild are running regular 4 person Flashpoints and we are almost at the stage we can start running regular 8 person Operations.

Ausmonauts Events

Over the last two weeks we've been trying to sort out the logistics and operations for our upcoming regular events. It has been a bit hit and miss and we send our apologies to those members who have been disappointed by the issues.

The plan is to hold regular Wednesday and Friday night events as mentioned in this blog last week. Wednesday night events are Star Marine and will focus on the FPS aspect of Star Citizen.

Friday nights will be Universe and focus on exploration and surviving in the Star Citizen Universe.

The final details for Friday night events have not be resolved so check back regularly for updates.

In probably the biggest news this week, SpaceX launched the Falcon Heavy Rocket. Congrats to SpaceX and another successful step to humanity's future in Space.

Many Ausmonauts caught the live stream and a lot of YouTubers did a lot of great streams that morning. See the video stream below to catch up on the action from SpaceX.

Our first Wednesday night event for 2018 was a bit all over the place. With apologies for the confusion the Ausmonauts would like to confirm that Wednesday nights will be Star Marine events. We had great fun crashing the Ursa Rovers and attempting to turn them back over with a Constellation. Footage of the night is linked below in the Youtube section.

  • Implementation of the user profile system.
  • Cleaning up the Event Calendar to make it easier to viewing in different browsers.
  • Adding a support ticket system to capture issues.
We are testing and will provide updates as these new features are made available. Star Citizen 3.0 is only a couple weeks away and we are all getting very excited to catch up with everyone again. Find us on Discord, Facebook, Twitter or Ausmonauts.com.

After nearly 2 years on the Enjin platform, we have moved on to a new hosting platform which will provide flexibility Enjin could not offer. As we develop new features they will be rolled out over the coming weeks.
