All is Fair in Love and War-Chapter 1
Here is the first chapter of the campaign that I am making, All is Fair in Love and War.  It involves the GTVA finding a resource field, and they begin mining it.  An unknown pirate organization begins assaulting the convoys, and the GTVA finds themselves in the thick of most likely a full fledged rebellion.  It has 5 missions(you probably won't play mission-3b, you'd have to really suck to get to that one), and shouldn't bee too difficult to complete.

Tell me what you guys think about it, trust me, it will get better as the story progresses.  I'm also trying something new here, and it's probably going to fail miserably, but I don't care....  

Edit:  I fixed it so you can actually play it.  Download further down in the thread!

Kind of -

Small problem. I go to start the first mission, and there;s no different ships to choose from, and no weapons to choose from, at all. I checked fred, no problem there. I checked my vp files, all the right ones were in place. I checked for any extra tables or junk, nothing.

:confused:

Got your email, will test sometime tomorrow, when I get back to a comp with FS2. In the interim, did you make the changes I suggested to the missions?

Tried it. Same problems. Got bored and fixed it myself by just enabling everything.

1) Played the first couple of missions and I'm not too upset so far. No major furballs but then we're fairly early on in the story so missions are likely to still be a little stilted.
In mission 2 I didn't notice any warning when the bombers jump in. It might be nice to get some (there may have been some that I missed though).

2) BUGS : On mission 2 the TAC-TRI got destroyed but the Triton survived. Despite this I still seem to have completed the mission. Wasn't the metal ore supposed to be in the Triton's cargo rather than the Triton itself?
 Also on mission 2 there was no Return to Base directive

3) You might want to consider changing the love interests surname. When I think Jennifer Connelly I think of the Oscar winning actress (Not that I mind. She's gorgeous and has no problem with on-screen nudity ;7 )

WTF, i changed her name.  Anyway, it's supposed to be Aston...

Hmm... I'll have to look into that bug there... but the Triton cargo isn't the most important, it's secondary...  But, oh well... anybody else tried it out???

Okay. Played the rest now (seems like I'm the only person who's bothered to).

Plus : In general I enjoyed the campaign. You're doing something slightly different from most and I like that.

Minus : I didn't find any major bugs which is good but I did find another mission was missing a return to base directive (the final one if IIRC) but apart from that things seem fine.
 The missions themselves were a little too straightforwards for my liking. Once the first wave has been destroyed you wait a few seconds and wave 2 appear from exactly the same place.
Mix it up a little. Have a few more wings with less waves and scatter them about a little. Use the threshold option on a couple of them to mix it up a little as to when new fighters will appear.

Jenni needs to have some more dialogue in those missions in which she flys with you. As far as I could tell she only flew in the first mission. I was a little lost as to why she was in that one and didn't fly in the others (or why she kept so quiet if she was in them) At them moment she's a bit part in the campaign and I'm guessing she's supposed to be more important to the plotline.

Lastly, the ending was a little abrupt though I'm getting all ready for the big counter-strike and then suddenly I'm kicked back to the flight deck cause the campaign is over. You need a better place to end the chapter than that or at least a longer debrief (Otherwise it just feels like this is the point where you got bored and decided to release what you'd done so far).
The tension has gone up a little now and it looks like we are going for a big showdown with the pirates. When chapter 2 comes out that tension won't be there and the big mission would be a bit of a strange start to the chapter.

Anyway keep it up cause I want to see where the plotline goes in part 2.

Thanks karajorma, the next chapter will be a bit more exciting(i've even finished the first mission), as you are basically going on the offense against the pirates.  Believe me this will get good in about chapter 3.

BTW Black Ace, I never said anything about new weapons and ships.  The only mods that are going to be required are the port.  As for now, no mods are required for chapter 1.

Well, here's an update on how chapter 2 is coming.  You'll need the port to use it(do i need permission?  GE???), it has some of the old FS:1 ships in it(that's the whole reason for it).  Three missions are done so far, and they are high quality ones.  I expect it to be released some time next week.
