Munker Madness - Special Rules Suggestions:

Recent discress at the lack of our Special Rule Suggestions has lead us to make this forum post.
We would like fans of Monday Munker Madness to give us suggestions for possible Special Rules events.
Here is our plan.

We would like fans to write out their Special rule suggestion in the format below:

  • Name: Spine Breaker (Example)
  • Ship: Spire
  • Ship Loadout: Slot 1: Minotaur, Slot 2: Harpoon, Slot 3: Mine Launcher, Slot 4: Mine Launcher  ||  (Ships must have at least two mine launchers.)
  • Pilot Loadout:(It is up to you if you want to mess with these parameters)  ||   (Pilots can do things such as reverse only, full speed only and so on.)
  • Engineer Loadout: (It is up to you if you want to mess with these parameters)
  • Gunner Loadout: (It is up to you if you want to mess with these parameters)

We will look at this thread once a week to see what suggestions there are.
Try to keep this thread focused on the suggestions rather than discussions.

See you in the skies!

Munker Madness

It has been far too long since the old Monday Munker Madness fell into the ashes of unactivity due to the personal obligations of the hosts. But now the time has come, to return to the skies and begin the reign of phobos once more!

Fellow Sky-Captains, Gunners and Hardy Engineers, are you ready for Munker Madness to return to the skies!

We hope you do! So we created this survey to find out!

Help me and Sir Steffen relaunch Munker Madness today!

Turn up the Contrast Settings and feast your eyes on this teaser posted on the guns of icarus facebook page:

I was discussing this with Muse, apparently they are bringing night maps to Skirmish and Alliance.

When asked whether ships would use Headlights, Muse mentioned lighting will be done using Ambient Light.

How do you all feel about Night Maps?
  • I for one am very excited for them, I will be awesome to sneak around and ambush enemies.

Feedback and Suggestions / Multiple Clans Function Suggestion:
« on: September 25, 2016, 03:18:12 am »
Over the past year, I have seen quite a few posts on the forums asking for methods of having multiple clans.
Recently, I retired from The Bards and joined The Cakes but I still want to be associated with The Bards.
So. What if we picture Clans in the same way as Titles.

you get a dropdown menu on your profile which allows you to change between your most regular clans.

For example,
  • I can change to The Bards when playing with The Bards
  • I can change to The Cakes when playing with The Cakes

If such a system can be implemented, I feel many players may be interested in it.   
  • During competitive matches, subs can temporarily join the clan they are assisting. 
  • It would relieve stress from clans who are mourning the loss of their clan members. And allows clan members who are leaving to remain in between.
  • The toggle tag system may also be beneficial for those who are clanless CA / mods. We can have special tags for those roles including Streamer and Teacher.
    • Example  [Streamer] Sir Steffen.
    • Example [Teacher] Rowho
    • Example [Mod] The Mann

"Ok" engineer, unpredictably bad pilot.

Salutations competitive clan people things,

I am looking to improve upon my skills and get back into competitive. I began exploring competitive gameplay with The Bards but we're not very active at this moment in time. Since other competitive bards do a lot of substitution, I thought I would try the same. (Maybe I should've rephrased this...)

I'm a decent engineer, tell me what you want and I will make sure I complete the tasks. If you need a pilot, I can do that however, It would be better for me to be an engineer since I play pilot for fun, that would not work well in competitive matches.

As for training, my work schedule is rather unstable in terms of availability. I also live in England so I run on British Summer Time (BST) rather than EDT or UTC. 
I am mainly available after 7pm BST so I am around of most events at 8pm BST / 7pm UTC.

If you're looking for a sub for competitive matches, feel free to contact me on the forums or in game.

To conclude:

Taking commonly used words, make phrases out of them.

Using words such as Newb, pyra, Spanner, Engi and etc,

Make irrelavant phrases.

Feedback and Suggestions / Camera Mode / Realism Mode:

Camera Mode:

As a Spectator, you can disable the UI to take some really Nice screenshots.

My Suggestion:

Have a Button to turn off UI on ship to take some screenshots on board.

Realism Mode:

For a new challenge, A Hard Mode can remove the UI thus giving the players a new form of realism.
 Players will need to rely on

Black Smoke from Damaged Components.
Coloured smoke from different tools:
Red or Blue Flags and Materials on ships to distinguish enemies
