HELP TOPIC: Player Awards


Player awards are given out every six months - once in January and again in July. They exist to reward players for their contributions towards their SIMM and the RPG as a whole, whether this be while posting, or with help outside of missions.

Shadow Fleet awards are given from an out of character point of view. Out of character awards reward players for their commitment outside of the normal missions, for example, for submitting mission ideas or having consistently well-written posts.

The following lists all the awards possible for a player to gain.
