Player achievements are OOC accolades awarded by the command staves of participating ships to their players for completing IC or OOC objectives and challenges. They are also used to track progress towards promotion.

Achievements are self-reported by players themselves to their respective command staff. If a player believes they have earned an achievement, they should notify their command staff by email and include the link to the supporting sim or documentation. Player achievements are tracked on a spreadsheet/leaderboard so that players can keep track of achievements they have earned.

History and Implementation

First developed and introduced for the USS Invicta by Rich (Roshanara Rahman) and Deliera (Tristam Core) in 2016, the original player achievement system has been implemented by the following ships:

In addition, the following two ships have developed their own set of player achievements:

The rest of the information on this page is for the achievement system in use aboard USS Veritas, USS Montreal, USS Eagle, and USS Gorkon. For more information about the system used on USS Columbia, check out the Columbia Player Achievements page.

Player achievements are divided into four categories. Click on a category to see all the achievements in that category:

  • Tour of Duty Achievements
    • These achievements are required before advancement to the next rank.
  • General Achievements
    • These achievements are optional and are not required for promotion. They are given for IC and OOC challenges not specific to a particular duty post or character interaction.
  • Duty Post Achievements
    • These achievements are optional and are not required for promotion. They are given for players that utilize qualities of a particular duty post.
  • Character Interaction Achievements
    • These achievements are optional and are not required for promotion. They are awarded for interactions with specific characters and created by those characters' writers. Once you have reached the rank of lieutenant JG, you can create your own achievements that other players can earn from your character and submit them to the command crew to be added here.

Displaying Achievements

Each player achievement is awarded with an icon. They can be displayed wherever the player would like, such as on his/her user page, character’s bio, or forum signature. All icons are made by Freepik from www.flaticon.com.

To easily display a player achievement on the wiki, use the PA template by simply writing: {{PA|Name of the Achievement}}

For instance,
{{PA|Avast ye}}
creates:
Avast ye
Avast ye

And you can list them in a row or in a table:

{|
|{{PA|On the road again}}
|{{PA|Five suns}}
|{{PA|Avast ye}}
|}
On the road again
On the road again
Five suns
Five suns
Avast ye
Avast ye

Optional SIM link

You can also add the link to the SIM in which you earned that achievement by adding SIM=URL of the sim. For instance:

{{PA|Isn't she lovely?|SIM=http://sims.starbase118.net/posts/1996080}}
Isn't she lovely?
Isn't she lovely?

Displaying achievements

Player achievements can be displayed on your character's sidebar, just like awards, service ribbons, and badges, using Template:Achievements Rack.


Adding achievements to the Wiki

You can add achievements to the Wiki for your character or ship by following these steps:


Finding and Uploading an Image

  • Find an image via Flaticon/Freepik. Choose a monocolor image, if possible.
  • Download the PNG in 512 pixels.
  • Go to Upload file and upload your image.
  • In order for the image to appear when using in the Player Achievement rack, you need to specify the name like so:

  • Make sure to add the following as the comment:
 Icon made by [http://www.freepik.com/ Freepik] from [http://www.flaticon.com  www.flaticon.com] [[Category:Player Achievements]]
  • Save it and make sure all the above is correctly applied. If you goof on the file name, it can be moved.


Adding the achievement to the ship/character/category above

Once you've got your achievement on the wiki, you'll need to add it into the racks above.
