More Database Updates
Posted May 13th 2013 by Mordred Ocal

Over the past month, the Future Fleets site has been getting tested by a small but incredible group of Beta users. Thanks to their efforts, we have been able to fix a number of bugs and also improve several features.

And so, two weeks ago, we began opening up the Beta program to new users, and much to our surprise, this new batch of testers responded with even more great feedback - so much, in fact, that we are going to spend another week or two making all of the improvements they suggested!

Among the things we will be working on:

  • Improved Simm/Fleet Management Functionality - The current functionality is a bit clunky. We will be working on improvements which allowed players to more easily populate their crew and personnel manifests without needing to jump through hoops.

  • Reserved Positions - Instead of making existing crew members apply for Open Positions (which other players can search for) we are going to add Reserved Positions functionality.

  • Apply on Website - We will be adding back functionality we had previously included in the Database portion of the site. This will allow Simm/Fleet Managers to specify whether they want someone browsing their Open Positions to apply here or on a specific page of their own site.

  • Simm/Fleet Spotlight - Instead of using the Profile pages for simms and fleets as a simple database entry, we are going to try and convert the Simm and Fleet Profile pages into a canvas which owners can use to better advertise and promote their simm or fleet on our site. Exceptional profiles will be flagged by our administrators as "Featured Worthy" so that they can appear in the Featured section of our front page.

We are very excited to work on these improvement pre-launch so that we can ensure a smooth, enjoyable experience when new players begin joining the site.
