Good luck to everyone who's participating! Nobody's died yet, thank goodness, but I'm starting to get a little nervous for the little dudes in the Norn Terrarium, since they're stuck with the laburnum.
As coordinator I must ask that you please not judge me for the music in this video. I made it when I was very, very tired.
Note, I was a fool and talked about KittyTikara’s home smell emitters instead of her weather generator by mistake! This was kind of rectified in post. The home smell emitters were not pictured, but they are a part of the download!
So as many of you may know, this Saturday (the 17th) marks the beginning of the CCSF 2018. To mark this special occasion I have decided to announce a Get Online Day for Docking Station via Albian Warp. During the event I will be releasing a norn named "Warpster" into the warp, and maybe a few other creatures, as a tribute to Warp Week which took place all the way back in 2009. He will be immortal but not infertile, and I will encourage people to screenshot Warpy if they spot him in their world. You can find the releases of the Albian Warp client here.
Because it is a third-party server, Albian Warp requires a small amount of configuration before it can be used to take your worlds online. You can find a guide to setting it up here.
During the event I strongly encourage people to log any errors or problems they might come across with Albian Warp, and to report them either to me or Ham5ter.
I hope everyone is looking forward to the CCSF 2018! I'm certain Layla will do a superb job.
Gosh, can you believe it?? Pretty please if you want a Norn submitted to the Wolfing Run, comment your specifications on the video instead of here just so everything is in one place! Thank you bunches!!
Hey all! Just wanted to let you know that the CCSF scheduled to start on November 17th!
Yes, this DOES mean that you'll have plenty of time to get your submissions done. However, it would be a huge help if you could still send them to me as early as possible just so I can guarantee them a spot in the YouTube video and plan out my blog entries accordingly!
I still only have a handful of submissions, but if yours isn't done and you already know exactly what you're making, you can shoot me an email now and I'll prepare for its eventual creation ahead of time!
You can submit entries to firstname.lastname@example.org , and in addition to the YouTube videos I'll be posting, the CCSF will be hosted at ccsf2018.tumblr.com !
Recently an academic case study which made use of Docking Station (as well as custom-made agents and metarooms!) has been unearthed. The study split up creatures into two different species known as "Explorers", which were portrayed as ettins and "Natives", which were portrayed as a norn mix with large heads and angry expressions.
More information can be found here. I also invite everyone who is interested in this recent find to the ongoing discussion in the forum thread.
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the last poll!

The coordinator who received the most votes was actually myself (Layla) and I'm very happy to accept this role! This will be my first year coordinating, so once I figure out exactly how much work is involved, I may ask for help from those who volunteered.
The theme that got the most votes was Revival, Renewal, and Reclamation. As such, I'm going to showcase any submissions on my YouTube channel, and I encourage all of you to do the same on whatever social media platforms you prefer!
