Good morning everyone!

I wanted to extend a line to remind everyone that The Forge Block Party commences this evening and runs through the weekend.

During the course of the weekend, we'll play games, share stories, and most importantly have a great time!

Everyone is welcome to take part! I wanted to put this post out in the open to help share some details to help maximize the fun - Starting with the schedule of events:


6pm - Space Engineers - The Great Battle of Colony Alpha!


10am - Armada II Fleet Ops (Installer for the mod can be found here - I have been led to believe that it is a complete installer - if this is not the case, and you need an Armada Installer, let me know.)

1:30pm - RPG-X - Nova!!! I anticipate a 3 hour week this week, just an early warning.

5pm - GTA V Criminal Empire Building


10am - Bridge Crew

2pm - Civilization VI.

5pm - Closing Discord Session

So tonight's Space Engineers Battle (Thread can be found here) will be hosted on our Space Engineers server. The IP address for that is and is also listed in a banner above. This server has a whitelist restriction on it, to try to avoid issues we had with griefers the other day, so you'll need to join our Steam group to join. It only takes a second, and it's a great way to stay connected with us! We start at 6pm EDT tonight!

Armada 2 Fleet Operations is a mod for Star Trek Armada II, and can be downloaded here. You will need a disk or ISO of Armada II to participate (But one could "fall off the truck" if you need it, just ask)

I'll post on Discord (I'm a link) the IP address to join for the match, and we'll organize this (and mostly every other event we do) from there. So you may want to pop on if you haven't yet.

Finished or not, I'll have to back out at 1:30pm EDT for Nova. Time After Time is a special episode designed for this weekend. It's a great starting point for anyone to drop in and take part. You can connect to our RPG-X server using /connect And a list of required files for the series can be found here.

For a change in pace, Those interested can hop on Grand Theft Auto Online And Do some missions, build 'The Klingon Raiders' motorcycle gang - or just paint Los Santos red (with blood :P)

Bridge Crew is a game most of us acquired on the summer Steam sale recently. We'll break off into crews and see what mission(s) The game has in store for us.

Civilization VI is a game I don't own, but Scott Archer does - and will help organize the shenanigans.

The Closing Discord Session:

This is the big one on Sunday. During the weekend's events, We're going to put up flash polls for various game related awards. These awards will be little more than bragging rights (until next year), but - come on, Bragging Rights!

These awards (and a few more, handed out special by the Ops Team) will be awarded to everyone who takes part during the closing discord session.

Just once more - A link to our discord can be found here:

And that will close out our weekend. If you have any questions, comments or concerns Please reach out to Me, Stringtheorist, Scott Archer, or Callum603. We'll all be more than happy to help.

See you all tonight!
