Nova Character Bio

Postby Emily » Tue Jan 12, 2016 1:23 am

​Hey Everyone,

I'm looking to hear what people think the character bio should be for Nova. What sorts of information would you like to have on it that you cannot have right now? Should things be removed? Should things be added? More sections? More tabs? Tabs inside tabs? I'm just looking for general information on what you guys think of the current setup Nova has on the character bio.

Let me know your thoughts! :D

I have fairly extensively expanded Nova Bios for USS Harbinger.
With the Personality Tab no longer congested with stuff, I think it's cleaner.
Many new sections for people to add things like equipment, friends & enemies, vehicles, Education, off-ship property, legal wards, clans, etc. (I also added an "Available for Relationships" field with 'yes/no/unspecified dropdown options.)

All this is kind of new at the moment at Harby, so data fields aren't yet populated.
However, I invite you to see how I've expanded it in this example profile:

Update - I edited and added another field, should be helpful to species with different lifespans:
Age: Chronological (This is the original Noval field renamed).
Age: Physical

I populated Ton'Yi's profile fields to give a better sense.

I've seen your side, and you've done quite an impressive job with it! I'm kind of looking for ideas you would want to do that you cannot currently manage with the current form. :)

My bad.

Actually, I there is an idea I had a while back.
Add to Nova a profile sharing module to share with Fleet IFS.

Synchronize Sim profiles with a global, master fleet roster.
It might have to be basic default fields only, though, because Fleet wouldn't know about customized fields.
(Looks at Harby mods... Yeah...)

{edit - FSF Fleet does something like this, keeping active profiles visible and inactive ones archived}
