DATAMEM

[:: Legends of the Jedi ::]

Syntax: datamem write new
datamem write <#>
datamem write <#> subject <subject>
datamem write <#> to <to>
datamem write <#> from <from>
datamem view <#>
datamem copy <#> <amount or 1 if blank>
datamem receive
datamem send <#>
datamem eject <#>
datamem load <keyword, disk from inventory>
datamem delete <#>
datamem download <#>

As one can imagine, this command allows the user of the datapad to store, write
edit, save, eject, share, and otherwise affect message disks. Most of it is
self explanatory, but there are a few that are not so easy.

Receive sets a mode on your datapad which you can toggle that will wait for any
inbound signals to download data for a disk. This is also known as `sharing`. A
group of people can set their datapads to receive, and one person can send,
giving each person a copy of the information.

Datapads also give upgraded tracking abilities because you can set the FROM
field, unlike any other form of editing disks. To get a disk from the datapad
to a message terminal, or mail terminal, simply eject the disk and do it as
normal.

DATAPAD DATAMEM_GUIDE

[:: Legends of the Jedi ::]

This is the datamem tutorial. Please sub out anything within <>'s as being a
variable that you enter. You can carry a number of disks on your datapad, the
number depending on what your modulation is. As such, it becomes necessary
to make referance to each disk by its corresponding number.

Step 1: Make a new disk
Command: `datamem write new` - This will begin a new disk and put you into a
writing buffer editing the body of the message. Write whatever you would like
to, and hit `/s` when finished.

Step 2: Set the subject field
Command: `datamem write <#> subject <topic>` - subbing out the # and <topic>,
we fill out the command line with the disk number and a topic of relevance.

Step 3: Decide who it's going to
Command: `datamem write <#> to <name>` - This will put the name you specify
in the `to` field of the disk. Feel free to use any name to describe the
organization, group or person to whom the message is addressed.

step 4: Where is it coming from?
Command: `datamem write <#> from <name>` - This allows the creator of the
message to identify himself, his organization or an alias as the sender. If
it is left blank, the real name of the poster will be used.

Step 5: Review
Command: `datamem` - This will list your datapad's inventory of disks. This
is a good way to figure out what number to replace <#> with.

Step 6: Ejecting
Command: `datamem eject <#>` - Self explanatory, eject the single disk

Step 7: Loading
Command: `datamem load <keyword>` - Put a disk into the datapad from your
inventory, allowing you to see it in `datamem`.

Step 8: Copying
Command: `datamem copy <#>` or `datamem copy <#> <amount of copies>` - This
will duplicate the message, useful for if you intend to send it to multiple
recipients. All duplicate disks will be in your datapad.

Step 9: Posting
Command: `note post` or `mail post` - After ejecting, the disk is ready to
upload to either a mail or message terminal. The disk must be held.

Step 10: Downloading
Command: `datamem download <#>` - Will make a link to the mail/message terminal
briefly, creating a copy of the information in a new disk in your datapad. This
of course requires that you are in the same room as a mail/message terminal.

Step 11: Editing
Command: `datamem write <#>` - Enter a writing buffer to edit the body of the
specified message.

Step 12: Viewing
Command: `datamem view <#>` - Read message on specified disk. Do remember to
see the number with `datamem`.

Step 13: Sharing
Command: `datamem send <#>` - This command makes use of the datapads ability
to send or recieve data in a limited range (the room). Anyone using a datapad
that has been put in RECIEVE mode will recieve a copy of the message.

Step 14: Receive mode
Command: `datamem receive` - Toggle the receive mode of your datapad. This will
stay on until a message is received.

To recharge a datapad: Energize <Battery>

Mandalore is Dead; The Way is Changing
The scene centers upon a beskar-armored corpse laying respectfully in state upon a large obsidian bier in the middle of Mandalore Plaza in Keldabe. His T-visored helmet, crowned with laurels, conceals his identity. However, as a young, unhelmeted warrior steps forward and begins speaking, it is no longer in doubt, "Mandalore the Venerable has passed from this life to the next. It was the Venerable who took control of the fate of our peoples following the Emperor's disappearance and the schism of his Empire. He was well-respected for his deeds and his search for honor in combat. We shall never see his like again." As if on cue, the snap-hiss of an igniter is heard before a torrent of flames emit from the crevices of his armor, the leader's corpse burning like the warrior-kings of old. Setting his data-slate upon a nearby lectern, the young Mandalorian steps forward to address the crowd, "Our people have had a... complicated history with the Sith, the Lorellian Raiders, and the Galactic Empire. Many of my fellow clan chieftains look upon our governance by Emperor Rocik and the Empire as the 'golden years'. None can dispute that Maldiv Rocik was a consummate warrior and understood the value of strength, as is the Mandalorian way. We look now to his followers to determine whether they have inherited his strength to rule, or whether they pay lip service to the galaxy. We invite governments to prove their might and govern Mandalore, but caution that our warriors will rise up if you are found wanting..."

Ithorians Rejoice over Alliance with Aldera Peace Force
A youthful, reddish brown Ithorian woman in ceremonial robes steps forward before a waiting podium and holocam. She smiles politely, extending her arms and speaking a few lines of opening a convention before settling them slowly on the podium, "Good evening, sentients and automatons. Following several meetings with the various herdship councils, I traveled to and was received by the Aldera Peace Force. Negotiations began several weeks ago, and I am glad to confirm that they have accepted our proposal of a formal alliance. Following the Scions' atrocities, it was not the fact that Aldera was able to govern Tatooine that garnered our attention. It was their ability to restrain themselves from planting a flag and gobbling up the first planet they were able to. However, we believe that our alliance is more of a perfect match. The nature of our peoples are similar - we both enjoy peace and prosperity, and both wish to have an equal say in what happens upon our worlds. In this way, we may thrive together. Is that correct, Administrator Gunve?" She smiles as she notions someone to the stage amid generous applause. "Indeed, Envoy Wilthe. The APF's original mandate was for Alderaan, but the Alderaanian people are happy to engage in an alliance to ensure more prosperity to free people. It warms my heart to see that Ithorian and Alderaanian alike can rely on each other through a peacefully achieved partnership and work together for a better future. To celebrate this union, we'll be holding a Science Fair for those with creative minds to show off, assisted by professors from the both Tarintha Learning Center and Aldera University. Details will be released in the near future."

Setdraw, so you can show off your cool draw moves
* Players can now customize the draw message for any player crafted weapon. This was previously only available to forcers for their lightsabers via imm assistance, but we thought we'd give you guys something nice. SYNTAX SETDRAW <object> <draw message>. You can clear the message by doing SETDRAW <object> CLEAR. If you CLEAR a lightsaber, it defaults to the stock lightsaber soft glow and hum message. * Miscellaneously, forcer mana will lower to their max mana if it somehow ends up more than their max now.
