Cyclone Squadron Digest #25

HTML Editors are a pain in the arse!





     Greetings Cyclone Squadron, Wing X, and ISD Challenge....    Welcome to the new HTML Cyclone Squadron report. I'll try and make this more and more updated as we go along and as I learn how to apply Frontpage. For now this is an experiment on my part to learn Frontpage so I can apply it to the Squadron Website. Like how to make bars and frames for instance. That and none of my planned links will work since I'm doing this on my own PC (without internet) and can't tell it to take the programmed hyperlinks for buttons and such to go where they are supposed to... I was promised to get connected last week but since they haven't called me I think I can assume this week hopefully. Experiment. You might find a few surprises. Let me know if I missed something, I've combed through my email but I still may have missed something.




*You can click on the News button to take you to the TIE Corp's Main News Page. That we I only have to worry about repeating important things... Maybe I can figure out how to get that frame of the news page into my report neh?

*Need to work on a Squadron Website. I've contacted LCM Styles who offered to help. Any other helping hands?

*LC Beir is working on a new report format in HTML. Isn't that freaky!?

*We welcome COL Rei Ayanami who joins us from the Reserves!





*Some still copied straight from the Commodore's Report but maybe I can get something really super cool going. The sky is the limit. Maybe I can get the competitions pages automatically linked up here. Or not but its worth seeing what I can do.

*Squadron Competitions: None at the moment but I can kick a few ideas around. There will be a flying competition, and I have need of some creative talents for banners and such. Maybe some cool uniform competitions as well (even though we are switching systems).

* The hunt for alcohol comp
No one thought it would happen, but the nightmare became true.
We need new alcohol supplies, due to all the parties we have had.
Participate in the Run-on here:
Also fly this mission:
Good luck to everybody and let the hunt begin!

* Masterís Anniversary Bash!
Well as of Valentines Day this year, AD Master will have been in this mighty fleet for a total of six whole years. And to celebrate heíll be running a fly comp each and every week of February. Each week throughout Feb, heíll be flying one free from somewhere in the compendium. Not only will the top three receive medals, but any pilot who beats his score will win a IS-BW. In addition, at the end of the month. The pilots totalled scores will be judged and the three top rating pilots will again win more bobbles! Missions will vary from XW to XWA. All BSF's should go through your CMDR (etc) as normal. Then FWD AD Master the BSF approval form before the FREE's submission date. THE COMP BEGINS NOW!!
The first mission is TIE-FREE
#192 - When Cargo Ferries Attack

This mission's BSF is due no later than the 11th of Feb 2007.

* Frodoís Crazy Flying Challenge!
Oh noes!  We all know I can't let Master get the comp spotlight! As promised, here is a crazy FO competition, amongst many more that might occur soon. 
This competition is going to try to please everybody who wants to fly...And maybe write a little!
Basically, it is still under consideration by the Comp approval authority, but I see no reasons why it would get refused.  So without further waiting, here is the competition details:
Each member of the TIE Corps that flies ALL of the following battles before March 10th 2007, will be awarded the IS-GW!:
XvT-TC #32
XvT-TC #55
XvT-TC #59
XvT-TC #65
XvT-TC #86
XvT-TC #96
XWA-TC #52
XvT-TC #108
Each pilot of the TIE Corps that flies all of the above battles, AND posts a decent review for each (as in, a review with at least two sentences, telling us what you think) will receive the IS-BR in addition to his IS-GW!
Any pilot who achieves a High Score on ANY of these battles between now and March 10th 2007, will receive the IS-SWs!!!!!! 
If somebody then beats your high score, and you re-beat it, you will get ANOTHER IS-SW!
Simple rules.  Simple fun!
Let's get out there and FLY folks! :D

* Fridayís Vaping Rhapsody
The new Multiplayer competition hosted by our own LCM Zosite. They happen every Friday at 15:30 EST on the #EHCOO channel. Platforms are XWA and XvT, and DFCs can be awarded.

* TOís Own
The title of Training Officer's Own will be awarded to the ship whose pilots pass the most IWATS courses per pilot in each month. For the purposes of this competition, Omega and Praetorian Elite Squadrons will be judged as separate ship-equivalent entities. IS-BR for the participating pilots.

* TIE Corps Training Competition
Every Saturday, 1300 to 1600 EST on #EHCOO
Multiplayer competition with XWA, XvT and IA. DFCs can be awarded.

* Competition Ė the spice of life...
A little friendly competition to liven up this very special report (TAC Report #250). This will be AD Masterís twenty first TAC report, in each of these reports at the top thereís is a movie/tv/game quote.
The first three to email AD Master with all 21 correct answers will win IS-GR, IS-SR & IS-BR (or subgroup equivalent).
The subject line of the email should read 'When TACcy Speaks...noone listens' :P
And don't forget to include your ID Line.
Let the madness begin!

* Letís get ready to RUUUUUUUMBLE!
Ahhhh January, the only other time of year AD Master care about professional wrestling, why? Cause its the Royal Rumble, and this was goooooood.

So following his current trend of shameless rip-off comps heís starting a new comp!
Start Date: 10th February 2007
End Date: 24th February 2007
Medals: IS-GW x3 (or subgroup equivalent)
Missions: Custom Missions
Info: One FREE (each platform), one winner (again each platform).
The three winners (you can only win one platform) will then have the opportunity to enter the 'Shameless Wrestlemania competition' in April for an IS-PW.
Currently heís hoping to have three custom missions of his done in time, but since he really hates making stuff under pressure (comes out crap and lame) heís not promising nothing.
Oh and don't worry, they will be beta checked before you fly them

* Master's Monthly Map & Mission Mayhem
Start Date: 10/1/2006
Parties Involved: EH-wide
Medals: IS-GR, IS-SR, IS-BR (or subgroup equivalent) each month.
According to the System Manual ( the EH is in control of ten systems.
Each month Master is going to pick a planet from one of the EH Controlled Systems* from the manual. Those interested will then have the remainder of the month to create a Empire at War or SW Galactic Battlegrounds or Jedi Academy map based on that planet.

*Master may throw in the odd other planet from SW from time to time with more bonuses.
Designers are free to do as they like with the map provided basics stay true to the System Manual information.
Maps will be judged on: Technical realization (use wat u got), general plotline & general enjoyment.
All maps should be submitted ala standard TACcy Rules and via the Custom BSF (
All maps will be judged by TAC.
Additional M: AD Master has decided to change the plot of his funkily named competition for the new year.
He has added an additional M! Now the comp also includes our flying platforms! So that means when he gives us a planet each month you can base a TIE or even an XW free on that planet! Awards remains as an IS-GR each month, and he has yet to give away a single one

February's World of the Moment is.....Aurora Prime!!!
The fabulous EH homeworld provides, warm days, cold nights, a Dark Jedi infested moon, three funky massive platforms and the ever impressive New Imperial City....think of all the fun you could have. MUHAHAHAHHAA!!!!
Winning submission will be judged by AD Master based on fun level, plotline and bribes! All submissions should go through the
Custom Battle Submission Form as always, with a MMMMM mentioned in the comments box.

* Ace of the Tie Corps
Starting this month, we now have a new monthly competition series - Ace of the TIE Corps. The concept is simple - the pilot with the most flown missions at the end of each month will recieve an Iron Star with Gold Wings and the title "Ace of the Month". You will be able to see the progress of pilots over time by checking the Pilot Kill Board. At the end of the year, the pilot with the most missions flown will recieve an Iron Star with Platinum Wings and the title of "Ace of the TIE Corps".
The competition is open to all members of the TIE Corps and the counts are based on missions.

* Wing X Pilot of the Week/Month 4
Each week the Wing X Commander will choose a pilot he believes has performed better then any other pilot on the ship that week.

Each Pilot of the Week will be awarded an IS-BR and each Pilot of the Month will be awarded an IS-SR. The Wing X Pilot of the week will always be chosen in the Wing Commanderís report.
