Oocities.Com for what they could save, very little of this would have happened without them!).I have been spending the time rebuilding the site, with:Every major platform will has its own page.All Mecha will have its own Random Hit Location Table (WIP).HTML and ANSI coding have been greatly upgraded (except for smart anc castialian punctuations).Once completed, 13TH district will be re-invigorated with a completely new professionalism; Unfortunately Neocities doesn't "Like" castilians nor any other smart punctuation, a fact that we will be struggling with for QUITE some time to come. We appreciated your patience with the move and caution during the remodel. And, uh- That board behind you is still loose.UPDATES:
22 July 2020: All the major agencies are up and ready, but very little equipment is. Noticed some major reapirs to the main page yet to be done and the Briavenet codes are broken (they yetted me, no suprise seeing as it's been dead for a DECADE now). Not sure if the Bravenet codes AWILL be reapired, We'll see later. In the meantime email me anderingreddson at gmail, with any really NEEDFUL reapirs to be done.
23 July 2020: Starting on ships. Next updaute when any given section is done.
01 August 2020: Landships are up. Somehow I missed updating yesterday and the day before as I finished the other ships sections. Also added drones, infanrty weapons, Power Amors, and rail launchers. Productive day.
02 August 2020: Just after midnight I finished posting the last of the UGC Regular Armor (tanks)... Still a lot to go, but getting MUCH closer. By 1751 (Vegas time) I got most of the Historic Tanks up (only the StuG IV is missing, I might have to rebuild that entirely from memory). They're totally messed up, but at least SOMETHING'S up. Also got support ground vehicles up.
04 August 2020: Finished the ground systems (Destroids), aero-space entries, and Veritechs. I've decided that I have to bypass essays and work on factions first, then species, then I can come back to essay, then go back in the original order.
06 August 2020: Finished the last of the hardware sections today and started factions; The Invid, Humans, T'sentraedi, Knaecks, HNC, Wayist/Tiamt Magog, Na'vi, and Mimbari are up, though I half-assed the Na'vi (becasue "Fuck You CAMERON"), and the tech for some of these factions (espacially the Invid) isn't up yet. Fun fact, the DH-4 (biplane) was added to the Warbirds series only because of a single picture of a DH-4 in combat with a Seirra Delta/Tango. (I'll get the DH-4 going once I have everything else up; it's the "to be announced.") Also finished up the last of the Loyal Factions. Some subordiante pages are still lost (possibly forever), but at least the overview is up.
03 September 2020: Well, I realize I suck at the mod log game; In the last month I've added about a dozen pages and fixed a lot of minor mistakes. I merged the Magog Wayist And Tiamist page into the overall Magog page. Still struggling with some of the Rakatan Galaxy pages; Sooner than later I'll be finishing up the Geh 'Dai Industries pages, adding the YT-1000 and GR-75 medium transport (light and medium transport/non-militry). I've been working off-and-on on the Global Civil War (GI Joe inspired) pages. (And I got the DH-4 up. YAY! But I didn't get the Mobile Gun Bioroid really statrded yet, boo.)If anyone is intereted in displaying some art, I'm very interested; A topless Queen Tyr'ahnee, (Duck Dodger's Martian Queen) with a slave collar and chain leash. (And as is my norm, I'm merging the Duck Dodgers story with another one, Spaced Invaders.)
04 September: Finally added the PROMETHEUS from Star Gate SG1; Sooner than later I'll add Star Gate overall...05 September: I've redsicovered my original (HANDWRITTEN) United Galaxies Empire notes, so by tonight I'll have their Empire Stats up. YAY!06 October: Got the UGC Empire stats up and got New OCC's started. The New OCC's really is a rant about where society has placed their priorities; No support for essential employees (even when trucking was shut down during 2020, security guards were required to report for duty, some working overtime due to the shutdowns), overwhelming support for entertainers of dubious intellectual and social necessity. >:(After a massive false start, go the Cobra Troublebubble up. YAY!FINALLY updated the Mobile Gun Bioroid (and added missiles launchers to the legs.07 October: Finally split UGC Mecha Accessories AND added Veritech Fighter Weapons School. Teh later was delayed due to the original images being destroyed in the goecities shutdown.Minor: Added Damage Tracking Systems to New Tech.
Added Thunderclapp Artillery Rocker.10 and 11 October: Got "most" of the GIB's special hardware files up (only their undercover Veritechs is missing), added Swords to the weaps page, a lot of minor corrections, and I discovered I'd been putting updates for this month as September. Oops.12 October: Added stocks to the 5.56 revolver.13 October: Added most of the agencies worksheet; Travelling circus is as of now lost forever, but fortunately I can reconstruct it.14 October: Finally got the last of the GIB hardware up. Now to get some of the curcuit links fixed.17 Ocotber: I found a copy of my 14TH Fleet!!! It's a complete mess so I've spent the last three day putting it back together one line of code at a time, but it'll be up in a couple days... Over a dozen commands with stats, but not for the ships (yet). I also discovered there's 2,622 files on this site. :O18 Ocotber: Added 14TH Fleet/XIV Corps and linked Typical Battle Fleet; Typical battle Fleet will be merged into 14TH Fleet eventually... And I updated this page. L.O.L.19 October: found and uploaded the ASF-21 Sholagar Fighter; I was so sure this file was gone forever, so it's nice to have found it (actually, I found the .doc file that I was using for spell checking, smart quotes/apsotophese, etc.), but it converted over with basic copy andf paste. There's a few others I might refind this way too. YAY!!!20 October: Added Bailey Bridges with as much discussion as I could on the matter;The text delves into alternative uses (and some slight design changes to make them more utile). The simple fact is, we could build how societies out of Bailey Bridges if they could support the weight vertically (the limit seems to be about 1,000 feet, though this could change quickly if new materials were developed). There really is very little if any limit... And I got the ORI-Class warships up. I thought I'd gotten them up, but clearly something went wrong... Maybe a rogue Mind Melter opened a rift? LOL. NO.31 October: Updated freng.html in preparation to upload the first RCC pages; Due to the multiple file losses, all I have right now are Dragon, Dwarf, Fljyt (elf), Orc, Uruk-hai, Werewolf, Freng (Ferengi ST:TNG), and Clingohns (ST, all series). All are ready to upload except Orc RCC (needs to be reformatted). Also, at 2200 I started uploading the RCC pages. One more mission accomplished (at least partly).17 November: Added the Renada to Odds And Ends.21 Febuary 2021: Added Feild Bag to Uniform Manual... Finally. Updates are slow now becasue I have a new job that's full time so I don't have time to write anymore.14 March 2021: Added Massively Infected Persons to Dictionary and small updates to MkI, FT-17, Skinjobs (in Dictionary), and corrected a error on this page... FML.26 June 2021: Added Schwartz Rings (finally) to Odds And Ends and otherwise cleaned up the mess- Turns out I'd put a period where a right bracket belonged in some coding. Expanded the Renada, Mentats, and Rakatan Droid segments... And corrected the word "erro" to "erroR" from 14 March.21 August 2021 (official): I added the Dolne Pistol to the Brotherhood Of Steel (and Green Steel specifically) 4 days ago, but for reasons I do not understand it wouldn't show up until today (yes, I checked yesterday). Much of this site really is about what I think is important- The ships, tanks, and aircraft that I chose to "save" in this universe reflect my opinion of the most important of certain generations of technology, and the Dolne is little different. In each, I included the leeway to allow advances in technology that didn't exist in the system's own time, thus upgrading the Dolne (to accept "Plasma 662 and self-contained cartridges) was a natural next step. (I should probably do exactly that essay, and explain how each was selected...)22 August 2021 (official): Some minor repairs in Rumors and Odds and Ends, added Technocide and Reductive Fallacy and some other minor maintenance. I also noticed that some parts of Dictionary are out of order. I'll be working on fixing that ASAP (probably next weekend).01 October 2021: Added "Lettre De Cachet" to Dictionary; This was mostly to give clever GM's and players yet another tool (a particularly sadistic tool for GM's) for gaming, to rescue the "unfairly imprisoned NPC" (who's actually a traitor to the Council and tried to sell a Reflex Cannon to Atorian pirates) or to execute a Lettre on a bioterror suspect... Surprise me. This list goes on and on. And oh btw, I just noticed the LAST entry. :|09 October 2021: Added Time Chart, a hopefully comprehensive chart of all known time measures. Also, I had to correct the previos entry (I wrote "10 Oct," when I meant "01 Oct," and added "Official" by accident.) Time.html is a work in progress, the formatting is completely messed up becasue Neocities does not support any "fancy" fonting but I think I got the worst of the problems cleaned up.10 October 2021: Minor chages in html that had major effects on the Academy-Class Freighter/ACADEMY-Class Corvette. Still not UGC Era ready though.11 October 2021: Added an intra-page link to gear.html in preperation for the Colony Of Eureka (spoiler alert).17 October 2021: Repaired the links from M-611 Perceval Repair Vehicle to M-613 Mobile Repair Facility and added a link from the M-613 and the SF-45 Saker Space Fighter. Added SC 520B to Other Ships. I am a great fan of Peter ELSON and the other Chartwell Books artists (I'm not aware of anyone who isn't). Mr ELSON was kind enough to reply to my letters until January 1998 or so; When I didn't get a reply, I assumed it got lost in the mail. I was devastated to get a reply around December of '98 informing me he had passed away. As a minor tribute to the artists, I try to use their portraits with credit for the artist and referring to them within the text of the passage as various UGC militry officers (admittedly I'm a bit partial to the Spacy and Patrol and the rank of Commander).28 October 2021: Added a link to Personal gear and equipment to Hardware and Infantry weaps pages to make it easier to find. Minor update to Other Gear itself becasue I needed to kill 20 minutes09 November 2021: Fixed the VEROCHA-Class, added Baracuda and Partok-Class Freighter (but without stats).11 November 2021: In a sad commentary on the real world, I added "Masks" to Other Gear, with aspersions to the effects in the real world about mask mandates gone awry. I also put a link directly to that page from Hardware to hopefully make it easier to find.10 and 11 June 2022: Small addition and revision to Other Gear and Odds And Ends. Also, I did some wok on an as yet unpulished page, and I forgot when I did it.15 August 2022: Small corrections to Bussard and Shlogar pages and one to this page (don't you boomer me, boomer!).17 August 2022: Added the Promellian CLEPONJI-Class Battle Cruiser to Otherships.18 August 2022: Expanded the hardware to Ascension Supremacy to finally make them a full technoarmy. Minor repairs to the main UGC page.28 August 2022: In the first real update in a long time, I finally did the Mandalorian Collective while sick with covid. I have to do the Bobatech War Robot still, but that's basically a VF-1J in Battloid mode. It still needs a little work, but basically ya it's done.29 August 2022: Added the UGA Reliable Transport ("Reliable") or Relaint, a UGCized version of the real world Robin Reliant. Pics will be added in about 10 minutes.02 September 2022: Minor update to TU-2 Basic Tailer.02 Febuary 2023: Added Deck 2 to BREETIA TULL-Class UDF Deck Plans. 01-03 Decks images had been fixed a few days ago, but weren't showing as such so I assumed (wrongly) that I'd done something wrong and was going to try fixing those today.03-05 February 2023: Added more information to the UGC overview page. In short, there are some people in the real world that desire a slave lifestyle. Sylvester MAGEE (29 May 1841 to 15 October 1971) was one such, having never allowed himself to reliquish the title of slave (his first Master being JJ SHANKS of North Carolina, his last being Victor STEEN of Mississippi). MAGEE'S case (if true, to which there are some questions) is not terribly exciting; There are people living today who would embrace that lifestyle, in exchange for a guaranteed home and meals. You (and I) may find this unfathomable and immoral, but they do not, and I have made a CHOICE to set my moralistic judgements aside and allow them to live the life they choose. /rant. Additionally, I uploaded a cleaned up version of Tamarar_HATCH.jpg. In this, the original artists (Cherry Gig) is definitely marked (it's hidden very well, as I intended), so don't try claiming it for yourself. Later in the day, I added the RENORBY-Class Articualted Barge to the RENORBY-Class Supply Ship. It took a few tries to get the image right.09 February 2023: Added to Hardware a section talking about how the militry is trying to deduce it's inventory types. Yes, there is a new gun coming, based on the DETRICH/MEADOWS H-1000 (it's already designated the H-1100). There really won't be more about this going forward though; The Patrol's situation sums up everyone else's pretty succinctly, there's only so much you can ask anything to do. In the case of the Patrol, ATON, SAR, and National Defense missions are so different they simply do not allow for one platform (ship) to fill much more than one and a quarter roles, and there aren't 4 roles being covered. Trying to squeeze every penny out of everything ends up cost you more dollars than the pennies you would have saved. In case there is any doubts about my integrity (which are probably reasonable), I VERY MUCH AM giving the lion's share of credit to Dave DETRICH and Chris MEADOWS on the H-1100 project, to the extend that their names will also appear in the artwork, they're listed as the developers, etc. I'm not pretending it was my idea- It wasn't.11 March 2023: Added Drake's Equation to Dictionary and a spelling mistake here.13 March 2023: Added the Willian B CUSHING Hall and some minor repairs to the BREETIA TULL-Class UDF Deck Plans page (which isn't techncially ready anyways). The purpose of WB CUSHING Hall will come out later, but it short it's a patchjob.19 March 2023: Successfully added Deck 5 to the BREETIA TULL-Class UDF Deck Plans page; I also added Deck 10, but without the numbering system so it's "informational only" for now.24 March 2023: Added the MX-991/U13 Flashlight to Other Gear.14 April 2023: Added Smart Glasses to Other Gear.30 April 2023:Major edit: Added the T'sentraedi LIEWNEUTZS-Class Erukelto Dakan (Report Ship/shuttle)Minor edit; Redid the table for the TTA 335B Striker.Both are on Otherships.05 May 2023:Added the T'sentraedi Hover Pod and some repairs to the Shuttle to Otherships.Added the T'sentraedi Gluu-Ger Light Body Armor and Serau-Ger Heavy Battle Armor to the Dictionary page.07 May 2023: Reformat of the Promellian CLEPONJI-Class Battle Cruiser.18 May 2023: Added my ribbons to Andering Reddson; A T'sentraedi's Story. Though in context they are fictional, they're based on the actual awards I earned as a Police Explorer and in the militry except the first and second ones (I've never had the chance to earn the Purple Heart or Combat Action Ribbon and I'm very bitter about that) and the last one (I did not pass Pistol or Rifle Range, and I'm ok with that, even if I'm not really happy; I know I could have passed if I'd just relaxed and shot, but I was too busy worrying about the rangemasters judging my stance and style and blah blah, a few years after I got out I was told all I had to do was ASK to be allowed to try "my own way" and they would have at least allowed me to :/).
25 May 2023: Added Bylor Buildings and some minor revisions to MOT-4 entry in Odds And Ends.
