Operation Pitchfork: Asset Roster
I've put together a spreadsheet of members enrolled on the site along with the ships they have available, roles they can fill, and other resources they can provide for the operation, just to have everything in one place.  Entries are compiled from the RSI Ship Count thread and the original RSI post.  The spreadsheet is set to open editing, so anyone with the link can make changes.  I'll be keeping a private backup copy to protect against sabotage.  I encourage anyone to make any necessary changes to make the sheet more accurate or complete.  Feedback or suggestions are also appreciated!

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ArGbc93el3z8dGJvb2pFc2d4YUlSMnA2TU1OZGJyRkE&usp=sharing

How to use this Spreadsheet:

First of all, please do NOT touch the top two rows.  Also do not add extra sheets to the document or modify any of the existing charts without consent.  Do not sabotage anyone's entry or provide inaccurate information (like adding 50 Idris-M's to a single entry).  If you sort the sheet by any column or row, please reset it to sorting by name when you are done.  To Sort, click in the column to sort by, then go to Data>Sort Sheet by Column, A->.Z

Name - If you have posted in the RSI Ship Tracking thread or made an introductory post on OP.com, your name might have already been added to the list.  If you posted on both, you might be on there twice if you use different names between the two sites.  If this is the case, please consolidate it to one entry.  Please use your RSI handle, not your community monicker.  When making a new entry, either insert a new row in the appropriate spot (rows are sorted alphabetically by name) or add one at the bottom of the list.  Sorting is done periodically.

Roles
- These are the roles you are willing to fill during the operation.  Including a role does not obligate you to fill it, nor does it guarantee that you will be filling that role in the operation.  It is just to give us a general idea of who is willing and able to do what.  Here is a general outline of roles you can potentially include:


  • Pilot - You are willing to fly a ship in the operation, even if not your own.

  • Recon - You are willing to scout the enemy and target systems without engaging in battle before and/or during the operation, ideally in a ship that is fast and/or stealthy.

  • SWACS - You are willing to offer radar support and battlespace surveillance.  Communication will be necessary.  May work closely with Command.

  • Supply - If we are unable to restock items like ammunition, fuel, repair materials, parts, weapons, etc at a captured location, we may need supply ships making supply runs.  This role offers yourself for that purpose.

  • Salvage - In addition to salvaging items of use for the continued operation, we also do not want to leave anything for the Vanduul to clean up for themselves.  Post-battle role for salvaging wreckage for anything usable.  And there will be plenty to sift through.

  • SAR - You are willing to perform search and rescue operations to locate ejected pilots.

  • Multirole Pilot - You are willing to fill any of the above roles as a pilot.

  • Crew - Instead of (Or in addition to) piloting your own ship, you are willing to take a crew position on another ship.

  • Boarding - You are willing to take part in boarding actions to aid in the capture or destruction of larger enemy ships.

  • Multirole as Needed - You are willing to participate in any way listed above, both pilot and non-pilot roles.  More resource-specific roles as listed below still need to be mentioned separately.

  • Command - The only restricted role.  Available to operation leaders and organizers as designated by Sailor67.  Also available to guild/organization leaders.  Command structure will be determined as assets are confirmed, the game releases, and the operation draws nearer.

  • Communications - Communication will be key to the operation's success.  This role means that you are able to offer communications assistance.  This may be in the form of a large VOIP server or RL communications hub.



Other Resources - This is where you can make note of things you can bring to the endeavor besides ships.  This includes things like VOIP servers, art, LTI conversion etc.  If you are a guild leader or a guild contact, make note of it here as well as your estimated/confirmed pilot count.

Relevant Links
- This is where you can post a link relevant to your roles or resources, like a post describing the resources available or a link to your guild website.  One link per entry please.

Guild
- This is where you can identify what guild or organization you are from, as long as it is participating in OPPF as a guild.  The guild name should only be bold if you are the leader or contact for that guild.

Ships Available - There is a column for every ship, simply put in a number to indicate how many of each ship you have.  If none, leave it blank.  The far right column will automatically count up your total number of ships, so you can leave that column alone.

!!Guild Leaders!!

Guild leaders can register the combined resources of their guild into a single entry so as not to require every member of the guild to register on the spreadsheet.  Guild leaders should note themselves as a guild leader (or contact) in the Resources column, include their pilot count (indicate whether the number is confirmed or estimated), put the guild name in bold in the Guild column, and tally up the combined ships in the ship count.  If you see someone in the list that is in your guild, but does not have the guild mentioned, feel free to modify their entry accordingly.

Sabotage
While I ask that you not sabotage the spreadsheet or do anything malicious, I am still going to be keeping close tabs on the revision history.  I can also restore previous versions, and if all else fails, I will be keeping a private backup copy to undo any damage.  Anyone can edit the spreadsheet, but please do not abuse this privilege.

This is a great resource to have. Working to evolve this will help us out in understanding what we can expect to be flying around with on game day.

That is guild/organization affiliation.  I've added guild names and abbreviations over the colors to clarify.  Guild leaders/contacts have the full guild name in bold, which is the entry where full guild assets should be tallied if they are to be consolidated.  Sorry for the confusion.

I have also given the Command role to all forum moderators/administrators, as well as guild leaders.  This does not mean you are obligated to fill a command role in the operation, just that you have authority already established and are able to act in that capacity.  Command is the only restricted role, since the command structure will in the end be determined by Sailor and his designated lieutenants.

Anyone who has the command role may voluntarily remove it if they don't wish to have their name put in for it.

With some awesome help from Kingstrider, we have added all the posts from the RSI Ship Count thread, bringing our player tally to 530 and ship count to 1280.  However, the more people that can go into the list and make sure their own info is accurate, the better.  Since some people have different RSI names than their names here, if you can go in and make sure there is only one entry for yourself and make sure it is accurate, that would be a big help.  If anyone needs assistance at all navigating or modifying the spreadsheet, let me know and I'll be happy to help!

To avoid duplicating entries, I am only going to be adding new posts from the RSI ship count thread.  The name on the entry should correspond with your RSI handle (as opposed to community monicker).

Also, there is a How to use this spreadsheet document up, linked from the main roster.

Besides 'Command' being limited to guild leaders is there a set list of roles? Just to try and avoid confusion and ambiguity where possible  ;) (an example would be 'Scouting' vs 'Recon', are they the same thing as far as we are concerned?)

There are example roles listed in the "How to use this Spreadsheet" document, url pasted near the top of the sheet.  But here they are for easier reference.  Additional roles that do not fall under these categories may be added at your own discretion.

Pilot - You are willing to fly a ship in the operation, even if not your own.
Recon - You are willing to scout the enemy and target systems without engaging in battle before and/or during the operation, ideally in a ship that is fast and/or stealthy.
SWACS - You are willing to offer radar support and battlespace surveillance.  Communication will be necessary.  May work closely with Command.

Good suggestion, but I'll add the ship when it comes out.  Saves some people the trouble of switching on the roster now, then changing their mind when it comes out and switching it back.

Based on Shepard's current 1900 pilot estimate it looks like we have about half of them listed on the asset doc and of those only about half have ships listed (eye balling). I'm guessing we're at about 7500 ships based on current ship total and my assumption that most of the high ship count people are already on the asset roster.

I'm with Ben on this, that we only legitimize them by recognizing them.  The op is still a year off, and by that time, Trident or any other griefer operation will fall apart and be forgotten.  Best thing we can do is ignore it.  If griefing ops maintain traction as OPPF approaches, then we can worry about them.  I'll keep an eye out for them, but I won't publicly acknowledge any of them.

Copying and pasting a post from Operation Pitchfork main thread in the hope of increasing my chances of getting proper ship assets:


Fellas, I've created a quick and dirty Python script (2.7.x) to generate fleet images from asset images using Image Magick. I reckon this would be useful to easily update the Operation Pitchfork fleet images and probably for other organizations out there.

Bear in mind I'm no Python wiz (I've used it because it aws the only scripting language available at my machine at the time) and the code is messy, with plenty security flaws (all those os.system and shell=True with raw string concatenations...), there's zero error handling and there's still a lot of stuff missing. It pretty much violates every programming practice ever conceived by mankind.

Still, it is working and that is enough for me at this time, if I have time I'll update it later on. I've placed it on <a href="https://github.com/umbah/scfleetgen">Github[/url], so if anyone wants to improve it I'd appreciate it.

Some improvements to be done (I'm not sure I'll have the time to deliver them, if someone's willing to step up I'd appreciate)

  • Allow offset between the ship images

  • Allow setting a vertical offset between ship types

  • Allow setting up the quality of the conversion

  • Allow resizing assets prior to merging

  • Write ship labels

  • Rewrite all external calls to use proper os.subsystem calls.Also, replace those nasty string concatenations with safe string substitution

  • Verify whether input is sane before processing

  • Error handling

  • Command line options

  • Settings on external file





The usage is described on the README. Once again, <a href="https://github.com/umbah/scfleetgen">this is the repository address[/url]. Bear in mind there are still several issues.

Here's a crappy example output of Operation Pitchfork fleet. It's crappy like taht because I've used assets from different sources (with different background colos) with different levels of quality. If I can get my hands on some decent assets, I'll create a new one with decent quality later on.
Note: Xi'An scout is missing and the variants aren't separated.
<img src="http://i.imgur.com/pfEvh0K.jpg" />

Here's a wider one:
<img src="http://i.imgur.com/zSwIx4M.png" />


Bear in mind that until an option to setup asset resize and/or quality of the output is coded, you must ensure that your asset image files have a reasonable size (resolution) before trying to build the fleet image. I've tried to make one using <a href="https://forums.robertsspaceindustries.com/discussion/40114/show-your-fleet-get-the-resources-here">skuripanda's assets[/url] for Pitchfork fleet, but it has been running for over an hour with no sign of stopping, ate the entire PC memory, and given the size of the intermediate files, I'm expecting an output that's on the GB range.

Actually, someone else pointed me to this: http://raylehnhoff.github.io/SCFSD
And it's respective git repository:https://github.com/Raylehnhoff/SCFSD
Which pretty much made my endeavour pointless at the moment.


Regardless, I might eventually do some work in there again: I was getting close to making a second push to the repository with several fixes and improvements. While the browser based approach is quite user friendly, I'm usually happier with a script friendly cli interface.

In case you're interested, here is the git repository address (bear in mind it is still that nasty first version in there. I might not push any updates for a while, and the current code I have in my machine is broken. I'll push when I have the time to fix it):
https://github.com/umbah/scfleetgen


Some things I was working on, in case you are considering doing something over there:
- Both the run config and the fleet data being defined in external files (ini for run config and .json for fleet data).
- Ini sections being treated as configuration aliases, so that several different run configurations could be kept inside a single file (sharing variables when appropriate). Two command line options could be used to define a different configuration file (otherwise uses the default) and a different configuration alias (otherwise use the default).
- Replacing those atrocious process calls with secure ones, adding multithreaded processing as an option
- Different console output levels and optional log to file
- Command line options for every single configuration file entry, plus a few extra ones.


Some additional things I was considering for later updates:
- Being able to choose the tooling for the image generation. Image magic is fairly powerful and open up a lot of options (resizing images, different kind of outputs, template creation,...) but for simple/default execution it is quite slow. I was nurturing the notion of having a separate sprite based approach or something similar, for quick and dirty fleet image generation.
- Setting up templates for "reports" or something like it (meaning a few predefined outputs with a couple of variables, like ship names, org name, org logo, and so on).
- Allow using a separated images as background (stretch and tile options)
- Having an svg option: generating fleet images from svg assets. Not only it would be blazing fast (no need for image processing), but also scalable. The issue would be having svg assets to start with.
- A separate script that would generate a fleet file automatically from the asset google docs spreadsheet (hey, since we're being lazy...)

You can add 1 MIS to my available ships, which will be the primary one I'll use. May or may not still have the Hornet by the time the OP starts.

Also, depending on what the ship equipment ends up being, I may be able to fill in as SWACS or recon when a dedicated craft is not available.

I made a change to my Randallone entry changed 5x 315P to 4 and added 1 F7C-S (did a CCU/Upgrade)

In the process an empty line appeared above my line. I  may have dragged down a little while using the mouse. Hopefully I didn't wipe out another member's entries.  I left the empty line there.

sorry if I made more work for you. The spreadsheet is awesome.

Think I'm already on (handle DBack) as non-com Command Historian, subject to revision as asset acquisition allows.

It does bear note that my primary and most devastating weapon is usually my word processor... LOL
Anyone got a Con Andromeda Physical Goodies package you're thinking about melting for a Digital? Send me a note--maybe we can make a deal.

as you could see, I have more ships as I really could fly or command at the same time (44 ships so far, including Idris + Hull E).
Which is the appropriate role for this scenario?

Did some major reworking on the 'Charts' tab of the asset roster. The graph for ships is broken right now, until I can remember which account of mine had the AR admin access. But I added the 890, Carrak, Genesis, Glaive, Herald, Javelin, Mustang, Orion, P-52, Redeemer, Sabre, and the Vanguard. I also corrected the Aurora numbers and updated the Retaliator.

Can we change the description about Orgs so that people include them on the main page even if that org isn't planning on participating? I want to be able to know who's from what group to better organize things. Even if the org isn't participating, those people who are all part of the same one probably know each other, so it'd be easier when the time comes to organize.

Hey all, I thought I put my name on this before, but Ctrl+F isn't finding it. I might be under a different name... I doubt it, but recently I did change my Handle.

Sketch or Media, can you check the history of the Roster from 1/30/2016-2/1/2016? There's suddenly a ton of empty name cells that have organizations filled out at the end of the list. I want to know if that's something that happened recently.

Something changes since yesterday night. Now whenever I add a link to a name or organization it disappears. It's quite annoying and frustrating as the work-arounds to get names and orgs linked to their appropriate webpages is now a headache and has stopped my efforts of updating the roster.. Anyone with a better understanding of this or who has admin access know what's going on?

Oh yeah, I totally spaced and missed your comment. Your name on the roster shouldn't be your forum handle, it should be your permanent name, the one that doesn't change.

I was in the roster today and was thinking about roles. Can we have subtotal columns for each role. In the future it might be useful for organization and its a relatively small fix. Just put the total number of ships that specialize as fighters, recon, etc .

I found myself in the spreadsheet. I've updated the data to the best of my knowledge. I've also put notification and a link in my Org page on RSI that NTC is taking part in the Operation.

I'm not requiring members to take part, but I suspect most, if not all of them will. As Spectrum roles out, it will be easier to communicate with them, and get more accurate participation numbers.

     Obviously, we don't have the forces to go toe to toe with the Vanduul fleet, but I'm thinking we should pull a Tet offensive against them. We feign an attack on a single system that looks like a good target, maybe because they're already harvesting it and we go in hard and fast attacking their harvester carriers. Once their fleet jumps in to retaliate, we destroy all their comms ships in all other systems and do the same thing to pre-selected soft targets in every one of those systems.
     If they bring in their capital ships in-atmosphere to retaliate, we can have our own cap ships and bombers waiting to catch them where they are less able to fight. Our EMPs may really shine here.
     Without comms, they shouldn't have a clue what is going on.
     If we do manage to catch them in atmosphere, and we are able to destroy them, THEN we can bring in drop ships and gun ships to cause maximum damage on the surface.
     If we get overrun in a system, we can simply flee and go cause havoc elsewhere.
