New Poll

I have had players request that we allow adult (i.e. sexual) roleplay in private rooms and settings. Obviously, if we allow this, all players will need to be 18+. All current players would need to agree to the new terms and would need to state their age in order to continue playing.

Due to this suggestion, I have created a poll. Please use the page at

Thank you,

Alias is driven!

So after lots of lost interest, and after several long not wanting to work on this project periods. we’re back at it. And I (Alias, the other admin) have a fire under my butt to get this going! We could use helpers in testing stuff out, and general public satisfaction evaluations.

Why don’t we get something going together, we have a discord if you’re into it. https://discord.gg/zhcCMFd We’ll be hanging out, talking about what needs this, and what needs that.

A bit of a reminder…

Hey all,

Just wanted to remind everyone about the command +viewprojects in-game as it shows the various projects that people can help out with around the game. If you want to assist in the development of the game, this is the best way to find out what needs work done.

In other news, I added a whole list of commodities, thanks to the previously-mentioned suggestions by Bandus. You can see a list by typing +commodities in-game.

Thank you,
Kimojuno.

Chargen – Biography Required

Hey everyone,

I wanted to announce there were some more changes to the Chargen, specifically in the setting of biographies. Your character’s biography is now required, instead of being optional, as this will help in displaying the personnel record of people coming from the Alpha Quadrant. Once the command is implemented, all command personnel and medical personnel can see it too. I am unsure, at this point, if I should make it so during the character generator you’re asked about different medical issues, etc, your character may have but, at this point, that seems unneeded. I would appreciate any thoughts people may have.

As far as characters from the Delta Quadrant, their biography will not be viewable by anyone, unless they later join the Federation, or take a position at Starbase 900 — then they would have to ‘submit’ a IC record, which would just be their biography that the player already made.

This decision, to me, seems logical because The Federation would have records of everyone (even non-Starfleet personnel/civilians) who came from the Alpha Quadrant. Obviously, they would require records from both the Klingon Empire and Romulan Star Empire, as well, on their personnel and any civilians that would come along.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me with them either on the website or in-game.

Thank you,
Kimojuno.

April 2016 Update

Hey all,

This is an update about what I have been up to and where I have been.

Frankly, for awhile now, I had lost interest in working on NewHopeMUSH, due to the lack of on-going interest from other people (most people were joining then would leave), and this was very difficult for me because I got to a place of, “Why bother?”

Mind you, I’m not trying to blame other people, but trying to speak from my heart. I do apologize about taking so long to post here and explain what has been going on with me and NewHopeMUSH.

Further, while I can’t guarantee how many updates I come out with or how often they occur, I can state that I am working on the game again and have no plans to stop doing so.

I enjoy working on NewHopeMUSH and want to continue doing so. If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me using the contact form on the website or by using the in-game @mail system.

Thank you,
Kimojuno.

Server Downtime

Hello all,

For those that had tried to access the site from Saturday until yesterday (Wednesday), the site had some unexpected issues where it was pinging the host servers multiple times per second. As such, I had to request that the host shutdown the server until I could figure out why it was happening, and put a stop to it so that it did not continue to put more stress on their servers.

In any case, the situation has been handled and the problems are no longer occurring. Therefore, the server, website, and game is back online for everyone to access. My apologies for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
Jeffrey.

About The Future

Hey all,

Just wanted to take a few moments to post about what changes we can expect in the future.

I have been working on the test game, in order to fully develop what I want from other planets, and how interstellar travel will eventually work. This excites me because it means that Away Missions will be possible and will allow for exciting and different roleplay to occur, once the game is where I believe it needs to be to be operable and ready.

I have also been working on the shuttles and turbolifts, to get everything where I want it, and where I imagine the game can and should be. For now, however, there is still for me to do. I expect that it will all take some time to perfect, simply because I am doing the majority of the work by myself, along with working full time at my job, and as such this takes a significant amount of work to progress and get where I want it to be.

Thanks for the patience,
Jeffrey.
