History

New Frontier Initiative are an old-skool syndicate formed by a group of close friends in Australia. A majority of us are based in Perth, Western Australia, Brisbane QLD, and Sydney NSW, however our core lead group and membership base contain members from the US, Canada, Europe and the UK which is beginning to expand as we see growth and the return of pilots as the phase moves into 3.2.

Many of us have been gaming together for over 20 yrs playing a very diverse range of games. The age group of our players ranges from as young as 12 yrs old, up to the dinosaur ages of 50+ and have members from all over the globe.

We are quickly becoming one of the most active Organizations in the community, and we are working toward establishing our name among the top orgs in the verse.

NFI’s current goal is becoming completely self-reliant by launch. We aim to be able to sustain all facets of our mining operations from day one.

To ensure we are ready, our business operations team are working hard to ensure we have the right ships and the right people to assist us reach this goal.

We are looking for players of all skill levels and interests for the various roles available.

To date, New Frontier Initiative’s fleet consists of, but is not limited to (it would take forever to maintain this list);

  • Javelins
  • Idrii
  • Kraken
  • HammerHeads
  • Pioneers
  • Polaris
  • Crucibles
  • Caterpillars
  • Starfarer Gemini’s
  • 890Jumps
  • Constellations (all classes)
  • RSI Orions
  • Prospectors
  • MPUVs (Personnel and Transport)
  • Freelancers
  • Banu Merchantman
  • Reclaimers
  • Hulls A – E
  • Various fighters, bombers, and other military craft
  • A2 Hercules
  • Tanks
  • Cyclones, Knoxs, DragonFlys..
  • Racing Ships,/ Support ships and Transport for these events
  • everything…

The list above is incomplete for security reasons but is intended to demonstrate that our fleet is capable of handling any situation our org finds itself in.

The fleet continues to grow with each ship sale and new release. As new technologies and craft become available, we will continue to ensure that we have these available to remain one step ahead.

Anyone wanting to discuss opportunities can reach us in our Discord channel – https://discord.gg/Vqz2rMP

A Message From The Founders

We believe strongly Star Citizen is the future of online gaming technology. It is the largest public funded project the world has ever undertaken, funded by us, the gamers of the world.

I, and those I met through fate share a vision. We decided years ago that in order to make the vision real we needed to form and financially fund a Syndicate that would work towards a common goal. NFI was created and we began to build a fleet we know is required to support the many we hope that follow us and that will benefit now and long into the future from what it is we undertake.

For the founders, this will be our final epic gaming adventure. We have been around now for many years, and it is here our final commitment and legacy will be created and then left for those that follow us. This is our vision.

I have a vision of a place where the NFI members can come and play, in this magnificent universe, in an environment that is controlled by people a board of directors who care more about the player experience than their own personal gain. Through this approach, we enable a player experience free of those material concerns that personal in-game advancement introduce.

NEW FRONTIER INITIATIVE are not here to make enemies nor are we here to control. We are here to build a sustainable commerce engine that simply turns through the activities of those wanting to play the game. In a place within the universe where you have an opportunity to do whatever you want despite your real world age, economic position, geographic location, race, nor color of skin. Members only need to bring with them the desire to play without malicious intent.

I sincerely hope that through this legacy we plan to build, and through the help and assistance my friends are generously committing, that one day, our names will be remembered by the players of Star Citizen when we ourselves are long gone, for that segment of space away from the reality of life that they can call home. A place where their dreams come true.

NFI understands that some people may wish to be in two Syndicates, in some cases, have an invested interest in their own Syndicate, and they may wish to grow that personal interest under the NFI Organization umbrella, therefore they may be reluctant to wear the NFI- tag. These cases need to be discussed to the Lead Operation Team as some exceptions will be accepted in regards to the Naming Standards.

Violations
All officers are to report all violations despite the size of offense to the Lead Operations. This includes any violations that have been ‘resolved’. Officers whom fail to report Violations will receive training and or may be subject to disciplinary measures.

Minor Violation (Minor Offense)
Minor Violations, better referred as ‘offenses’ are low impact and can generally be resolved by lower ranks.

  • Minor offenses will be managed in a 3x Strike model.
  • The 4th Minor offense will be reported to senior management for resolution.

Any Member found to have violated the above NFI Standards will be given two warnings by the Command Staff. A third offense/violation could result in dismissal from NFI.

Major Violation
Major Violations are classed so, when a member blatantly breaks the rules.

When this occurs, the subject will be brought into a closed room discussion that will be held between the Lead Command Group Tribunal. After discussed, the person in question will be spoken to, and the matter then dealt with.

During the course of the investigation the person in questions wages, access, and benefits are suspended and no active duties will be assigned.

Finance – Wages/Salary and Material Reimburses
Wages/Salary
Until the EUU release the Economic structure and base line commodity values, it is impossible to set wages. Just rest assured that this is part of the NFI model.

The Salary Packages will include a ‘sick leave’ and ‘holiday pay’ percentage acquirement that is calculated monthly based upon;

  • The amount of time the player commits to their role within NFI’s structure.
  • NFI Rank
  • NFI Role
  • Overall player time contribution

The concept for the above enables the dedicated to take time off, or skip a few missions, or do something different and still get paid.

Player Tier System
The Tier system is simple, and works based upon the time you commit.

This enables us to roster the various operation schedules to ensure not only availability, but to ensure our business production is running at maximum efficiency. What good is our mining craft if they are not in use?

Utilizing Tiers, we get better idea of who’s doing what, when, and how long for. This also justifies pay/wage breaks, bonuses and material reimbursements.

The Tiers are currently allocated as per below;

  • Tier 1
    Players in this category maintain an average play time in excess of 18 hours per week. An average of 2.5 hours per day per 7 day week.
  • Tier 2
    Players in this category maintain an average between 8 and 18 hours per week. An average of 1.2 hours per day per 7 day week.
  • Tier 3
    Players in this category maintain an average between 3 and 7 hours per week. A average as low as 45min/per day.

There will be a class for the ‘super human’ player, the player that does not sleep. The player that lives in this world. Those special individuals will have personal agreements with the founders of NFI, and they will be looked after.

NOTE: Current Player Time Exceptions
While Star Citizen is in development we understand that the game lacks content for some. NFI are only going to enforce Tier 3 as a minimum requirement for training and ongoing communications.

Material Reimburses
NFI Members will be entitled to materials and technologies produced and manufactured by NFI. Similar to the wage structure, members will have available to the opportunity to replenish and restock personal craft, and build new their own ships using NFI resources.

Contracts

  • Contracts will be negotiated and treated each individually.
  • Contact information is confidential.

NFI Affiliation Policy

  • Applicants, and those accepting invitations must ensure that affiliates are not Syndicates that have a pirate or criminal history.
  • Your membership status with NFI shall be VISIBLE to all, at all times
  • The settings noted above may be edited by applicants here: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/account/organization
  • Recruiting Officers shall verify every applicant’s RSI status, as deemed necessary
  • Where applicant’s status is not as noted above, applications shall be denied and/or cadet shall be removed from our roster within 24 hours

Discord and Game Participation Policy:
We would like for you to be as active as you can, meaning we would like to have you play and be on Discord at least three times a week, the more the better.

Although game development and content may be lacking, the officers in NFI have training and practice events in full effect to ensure that on day 1, we are in fact ready, with more than sufficient knowledge in how the tools of our trade work.

We understand real life issues occur and all we ask is that you notify the officer of your division of any issues you may have in regard to being in game and having time for organization based missions.

We will work with you if you communicate with us as we are very understanding. If you fail to maintain communication policy, you may find you have to re-apply at the point where you have time for the game/organization again.

Intel Policy
Intel considered anything newly found or discovered by way of research, conversation or expedition. Intel can also be found in other forms by other means.

All ‘Intel’ discovered by NFI members is to be kept ‘CONFIDENTIAL’ and ‘THE PROPRIETARY’ of NFI until such time as the high-ranking officers decide that we have fully exploited any new assets found.

All information around the discovery including location, co-ordinates, events, everything is to remain confidential and treated as above.

When clearance is given, the affected crew/member may do as they wish with the Intellectual Property.
Failure to comply results in immediate removal from NFI.

Communication Policy
As a member of NFI you are expected to be logged into our discord channels when playing. Communications are paramount when functioning as a team. We do not mind if your Mic is not working provided you are working towards obtaining one.

As long as you can hear your lead, you can respond and act appropriately. We don’t mind if your English is poor, we would rather learn to understand you that not speak with you at all.

We have some simple rules for the NFI Communications protocol.

1. Mission Channels are for Missions
2. Operation Channels are for Operations
3. Use the Channels appropriately and in accordance with the NFI Charter
4. Refrain from too much swearing in the General Channels
5. Do not discuss political and religious views
6. Be familiar with the rules we have in Discord
7. Be aware of others on the channel – eating while using voice activation can piss people off.

Division New and Existing Member Role Requirements.
The Divisions of NFI, the core business operations have certain requirements such as different levels of activity to ensure maximum productivity, and skills that define how well that division performs.

Some divisions contain operational matters that are not to be shared with anyone outside of NFI, and in some cases, not to be shared with members of a lower rank.
