They've enabled creation of organizations. I've been wondering: is there an interest from people here to form a (small) company or such? And if so, what activities people are interested in (exploration, trade, bounty hunting, etc).

I may at some point get this, probably when the finished product rolls out or not long before, I would be interested in a group, and since my combat skills would likely be akin to that of a rooster with no legs, beak or wings, I would take mining, trade and occasional exploration.

trade and manufacturing

If the game's good and there's a SubSim group to cooperate with, I'll buy it

Me and Oberon can start a mining company to fund the S-boot flotilla (S as in space)

I'd prefer something mercantile oriented as well. Big fan of the possibility of exploration as well. Suppose we would need to come up with a name.

I've been thinking of SUBSIM Merchant Navy, or Merchant Marine. Boring, yes, but fairly neutral and keeping with the theme around here.

In terms of organization, officially, I'd like to set it as casual. If the group really comes together we might take things a bit more seriously, organizing properly and directing our attention as a group, but I think it's more likely we'll end up as a group of freelancers under a common banner.

Something like this:

Just an example.

The activities you can pick from:

Figured trading and transport were close, but we could swap one out for exploring or freelancing for example.

If we're going for trading and such, how about 'Hanseatic League'? Not as catchy the other suggestions but at least it's slightly less boring than just Merchant Marine, I think. Doesn't have much to do with submarines, but it does at least make up a historical reference and a couple of obscure science fiction references.

As for activities, I'd suggest Trade and Exploration. Transport seems a bit redundant.

Are the ranks customizable? If so, we should probably get rid of the corporate terminology for something nautical themed. Maybe something like Cadet -> Ensign -> Lieutenant -> Captain -> Commodore -> Captain-General?

So, Star Citizen is multiplayer only? At least it seems that way from reading the "about page".

I'm pretty sure it's only for the organization description, so you won't be constrained from any other activity.

Nope, it's going to have a single-player campaign, called Squadron 42, at least. I'm not sure if the open world game can be played in single-player, though.

No offense, but that sounds rather terrestrial. And frankly the league strikes me as rather a bit "evil".

Apart from SQ42, SC itself is planned to be playable in single player. It's populated by AI, with players taking their place where possible, and you should have the option to turn off PvP. Private servers were mentioned too.


During some storming of the brain, an argument was made to not include "subsim" in the name, on account of it not being an official group. It might end up reflecting poorly on the sire, and deter some people from joining as well.

I wanted to suggest Sol Solis Business Network. Use of Latin as a reference to human history, reference to human origin in the meaning, and a nod to the groups origin here on SUBSIM in the acronym (SSBN).
