Sim Format

The sim format used on the USS Artemis-A is the one, mostly, learned at the Academy, detailed in Tutorial 1, and continued in the other tutorials.

In addition to these fleet-standard practices, we employ several non-standard devices that should be considered standard for simming on the Artemis:

Titles & Posting Paramters

  • Split very long sims into multiple parts and label as such in the subject line.
Lieutenant Hallia Yellir - Perimeter (Part 1)
  • Include JP in the subject line of any Joint Posts, as well as a Part indicator if it is a multi-part JP.
JP LtCmdr Yogan Yalu & Ens Hiro Jones - Coma Chameleon
  • Include BACKSIM in the subject line of any sims set in the past / that do not advance the story.
[Backsim] Lt. Commander Yogan Yalu - Hop, hop, and away
  • If the sim is written from the perspective of an NPC, PNPC, MSPNPC, etc include any relevant qualifiers in the subject line.
MSPNPC Dusan Tornahd - Reckoning

Ending a Sim

  • Include "TBC" at the end of a sim if the scene is expected to continue (in other words, if you are not ending the scene).
  • Include "TAG" at the end of a sim if there are open response tags for other players.
  • Include "END" or "End scene for [your character]" if you are declaring the end of your scene.

The most common ending to a sim will be "TAG / TBC".

Optional Formatting

In addition to the standard formatting covered in Tutorial 1, you may (optionally) include the following devices which some simmers find useful:

  • Bolding location tags when setting the scene.
  • Bolding the names of characters when they are speaking dialogue.
  • Italicizing thoughts to differentiate them from other narration / dialogue.
  • Including links to wiki articles or relevant media for reference purposes.

Osuna: ::Pressing door chime:: Lt. Osuna, ma’am.

He rocked on his feet. oO Hopefully I find her in a good mood. Oo Nothing was guaranteed.

MacKenzie: Why not. Come in!

Please try to keep your text font, size, colour, etc consistent throughout your sim. Most writing applications and email clients will allow you to set these prior to posting. If you wish to use formatting or images in your signature, you may, but it is not expected or required. Please keep them within reason.
