Hey Whale: Thanks for the suggestion. No, what I'm more interested in is a more customizable multi-platform map generator. I think I may have started this little project just for love of coding, though I have searched the net and only been able to come up with a random map generator that dumps a bunch of turkish towns on the map. Not really all that great for creating maps for this site :)

2009 Ops Awards

I think we may have missed some of them, including yours. Do you happen to have a copy of the sim for those awards? --Wolf /talk page 04:26, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

I found it and sent it to Wolf. :) Incidently it's here: (
I don't think that's it, actually. I'm looking for the General Awards for Ops itself -- that's the Duty Post / Special / Staff awards for the whole group, from what I can tell. --Wolf /talk page 10:07, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure if I still have a copy... I'll try to track it down on the Yahoo list. It MAY be on the Tiger list, now that I think of it -- as I recall, it was late December when we switched from the Tiger list to the Starbase list. - Whale 14:57, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
I think this is what you're looking for --> - Whale 15:32, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Sig banners

Create a sub-category under "Media" for them. i.e.- "Signature Banners" ;) --Wolf /talk page 00:57, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Previous Vessels Named Drake

Just thought I should let you know I've updated the sections on Sir Francis Drake and his Drum with my (limited) knowledge.--Lt. JG James (talk) 15:20, 23 September 2013 (CDT)

New Easy Crew Nav

SB118 Ops Crew Nav

I've converted your crew nav to a new "Easy Template" version. Full instructions are available here: Template:Crew.

Among the New Features:

Simplified format to add officers

No more messy code! Makes it easier to edit position names and preview them to see if they fit correctly!


For example, just add:

|{{Tile|William|Rogers|Red|Commanding Officer|Roster-rogers.jpg}}

to get the next officer's tile added to the nav. |

Commanding Officer
William Rogers


If an officer only has a single name, be sure to still put an extra "pipe" character | after their name.

{{Tile|Solok||Teal|Chief Medical Officer|Roster-solok.jpg}}
Chief Medical Officer

Automatic placement of blank portrait

Places the blank portrait roster image if no roster image specified. Example:

{{Tile|M'Wash||Blue|Science Officer}}
Science Officer

Automatic resize of roster image

If an officer's roster image is too large for the nav, it will automatically crop and resize it to fit. Note that while this is a handy feature, it may not produce as nice an image as a properly prepared roster image.

Commanding Officer
Andrus Jaxx

Support for Nicknames/Abbreviations

If an officer's name is too long for the nav. Example:

{{Tile|Cassandra|Egan Manno|NICKNAME=C. Egan Manno|Red|Commanding Officer|Roster-eganmanno.jpg}}
Commanding Officer
C. Egan Manno

Simplified color names

Red, Gold, Blue, Teal, Violet, Black, Silver, Green

No need to change colspan

Table automatically keeps header and footer centered.

Ship placeholder image

Can be easily specified if there is an odd number of officers.

NEW UPDATE! User Correctioning of Automatic Resize and Crop

You can now tell the template to zoom into your image and change positioning! Check out the image guide for the roster template as the basic principle is the same. Just add the extra numbers for your corrections to the end of the officer's code, with the first number being how far you want the image to move up (i.e., how far do you want to see more downward), the second number being how far to move the image left (see more to the right), and the third number being how many times to zoom the image. 1.2x is a good place to start.

Example Original:

TraceyIntel uni.jpg
Intelligence Officer
Tracey Townson

Raw code for corrections:

{{Tile|Tracey|Townson|Black|Intelligence Officer|TraceyIntel uni.jpg|0|40|1.7}}

TraceyIntel uni.jpg
Intelligence Officer
Tracey Townson

NPC Roster Template

There is an NPC template roster: Template:NPCRoster, but the instructions aren't fully fleshed out. I think you can figure it out though. :) –Rich(talk page) aka Lt.Cmdr. Rahman 13:45, 2 February 2014 (CST)
