TCCOM REPORT #23

REPORTING OFFICER: Fleet Admiral Plif, TIE Corps Commander
DATE SUBMITTED: 10 Jan 21
ACTIVE DUTY ROSTER COUNT: 151 (+3) Including 3 NPCs

NEWS

The roster is up three from last time, picked up a few new recruits from various social media posts we've been putting out there and via flying in Star Wars Squadrons.

Since last time, two Wardens of the Imperial Archives (WARDs) were appointed. Congratulations to COL Stryker and CPT Genie! Their first project is leading a team that'll be designing an official TIE Corps logo, which seems to be going pretty well so far whenever I've peeked in on their Discord channel.

Also in the space between TCCOM reports, RA Zekk Terrik became the new COM of the Warrior, CM Robert Hogan is the new CMDR of Sin Squadron, and CM acetiepilot is the new CMDR of Rho Squadron. Good luck in your new roles!

The TC Squadrons League's Chalquilla Cup kicks off soon with team formation ending on the 14th. Organized by COL Silwar Naiilo and CPT Genie, it's a 3v3 dogfighting team event for Star Wars Squadrons. More details in #chalquilla-cup on Discord.

The TIE Corps has officially ended our support for Imperial Alliance (IA), Freeworlds (FW), Galactic Starfighter (GS) in SW:TOR, and Classic Battlefront II (CBF2). IA was an EH project that fell out of development a long time ago, FW stopped running its servers recently after spending a long time no longer being developed, and GS and CBF2 are still have live servers but don't see activity from the TIE Corps regularly enough for us to claim that we're active in them. GS and CBF2 still appear on the MP screenshot submission forms for now, but they'll be removed soon. The big idea here is to focus our attention on the eight games remaining in our lineup: the four classic Star Wars flight sims, Star Conflict, the two EA Battlefronts, and Squadrons.

Episode 7 of the TIE Pilot Podcast was released by RA Zekk Terrik and CM Jack Wynand, check that out on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6lLhnBTCUw.

Courtesy of the Fleet Commander, there's a new way to email the TCCS all at once. tccs@emperorshammer.org now delivers messages sent to it into all three of our Inboxes, a handy shortcut for anyone that has occasion to contact the TCCS all at once. As a reminder, you should go ahead and email all three of us anytime you're emailing two of us. Also, this new eh.org address is a forward as opposed to an account of its own, you won't see replies coming back from that same address.

  • Processing transfers and other profile updates in the database
  • Posting news to the feed in the database (sometimes)
  • TIE Corps Pilot Manual updates - Living document style, no big revisions that take a while to come out
    • Well, no big revisions until there was a new visually-enhanced version to reverse engineer into Google Drive before I can continue making updates myself, of which there are a few pending
  • Chatting with the IO about stuff we need or would like to see in the new database
  • Learning to be a responsible database code collaborator from the IO, AD Turtle Jerrar (thanks!)
  • Translating things discussed in CMDR+ meetings into proposals and changes

IN PROGRESS:

  • The Commodore Volume 7
  • Figuring out another solution for completing the evaluation feedback loop

  • Taking TM/3
