Open Sims: Mini-Series takes the Open Sim concept to a new level. Unlike regular Open Sims which have one shot plots the Mini-Series will run multi-part plot lines to more thoroughly explore the various different genres and allow people to become more invested in their characters. Each plot line will generally last 3 sims. At present the Mini-Series will be focusing on IRC based simming, depending on the popularity we will branch out into other standard and some unique styles of simming possibly including Board Based, Email Based, Twitter Based, and Facebook Based simming options.
The initial Mini-Series run will be Friday’s at 9pm Eastern on the dates May 10th, 17th, and 24th and will be held in the IRC room #FSF. We will be running an original storyline based upon the Re-imagined (New) version of Battlestar Galactica and will be run by FSF Who. If you’re interested in playing just stop by #FSF in IRC on May 10th and join in. Anyone showing up late or missing days will gladly be accepted but be forewarned you will not get the full experience of the plot and its twists.
If you have any questions or comments regarding the Open Sims: Mini-Series feel free to contact FSF Who.
Another Open Chat is on the schedule. FSF Sail enjoyed it so much last time, he’s hosting again on May 1st at 7pm ET. So show up to the FSF IRC Network on the #FSF Channel and come chat with FSF Sail, as I’m sure he’ll have some updates on FSF Radio 2, launching soon and anything else he wants to talk about.

Sim of the Month (for April 2013): USS Providence
You have heard of it so now the question is what is it? FSF Radio 2, much like BBC Radio 2, FSF Radio 2, is a companion channel to FSF Radio. The goal of FSF Radio 2 is to celebrate FSF, it’s SIM offerings, and most important, it’s membership.
The shows will be aired weekly on Spreaker.com which is the home of FSF Radio as well. A typical one hour show will feature a combination of music and voice segments dedicated to FSF. Some of the features at this point include: ramble on, news, post of the week, open mic, interviews, theme nights, and radio theater.
All members of the FSF are welcome to join in. Anyone interested may contact FSFSail@simming.net for information or to participate.

Space Fleet (SFOL) merged into the FSF in 2005 and in that time has proven to be a solid fleet of high quality games. As a part of the variety of changes happening around the FSF Space Fleet has requested a name change in order to aid in bringing outside recruitment efforts into the Fleet and the FSF on the whole.
Since Space Fleet has branched outside of it’s original focus on Star Trek and even Space Based simming, FSF Who and FSF Margo decided it would be time to look into a name change that they felt would bring more interest. After searching around the net they each came up with a short list of different possibilities and got together with Admin and discussed and agreed upon a new name. Due to the popularity around the internet of this theme, and in additional honor of former FCO FSF Hawg Space Fleet is being renamed to…
Effective immediately the Fleet name has been changed to Bacon Fleet, after a lot of hard work the website has been updated and you can also now visit the newly renamed Bacon Fleet at baconfleet.com.
