The fact that there is no mechanic in-game for organising Factions/Guilds should not stop you from organising the "Dark Side" faction. There is the ability to have personal chat channels, or you could use something like TeamSpeak for more direct, private convos. Also, your members could identify their ship using a name designation of some kind: MINERS Guils members use MG in front of ther ship name. There are also plenty of places on the web that host free forums and if you have the will and the skill you cold develop your own website.

I know that it would be better if this stuff were provided in-game, but as Jam has said on several occasions, his time-usgae is already planned for the next several months ahead. So, if we want to get ahead of the game, we have to improvise: hence all the work RAM has put in to out-of-game apps and databases.

I am not a combat player, but if I were, I would be in the Red Zone now, trying to gather a group together and get a cluster of systems established to combat Aga and Hubes; 'cos they have been there a long time and will be well established. I would be using any and all resouces at my disposal to make sure I was ready for when PvP was introduced.

I agree because we dont have right now the mechanism for fleets or factions does not mean we cannot start creating our own factions, via outside website or just by joining in the game.

I agree with both you...and I am already in the planning phases of this.

I would just like for it to be a bit more official with Jam's blessing and such, since I am relatively new here and there is a political system in place I didn't want to do something like this without some buy off from our awesome little community and our Dev Team!

There is, or should be, a mechanism for fleets in the game. They just have to be fleets of Player controlled ships and not NPC controlled ships. I am not sure if anyone has given it a good go, but Jam said that the PvE encounters could, and some should, be taken on by a group of players. So a fledgling faction could use these encounters to practice their Fleet Tactics.

The political elements on the game allow for players to represent whole systems in the Colonial Senate. There is no reason for all our Senators to get on with each other. What happens in the Red Zone has, by decree, to stay in the Red Zone ;) ;)
