RELEASE - Shrouding the Light
A new week begins tomorrow, so a fortuitous moment for me to release a little something I've been working on...

SHROUDING THE LIGHT

A year has passed since the destruction of the Lucifer and the flight of the Shivan armada. In the year 2336, the Terran and Vasudan peoples attempt to reclaim their former empires and piece together their shattered lives. However, dissidents and splinter groups from within jeopardise their hopes of peace - fighting for independence or against hated alien foes. In the midst of all this turmoil, you are transferred, from the safety of the 1st Battlegroup of Vasuda to the 13th Battlegroup's PVD Guardian and the troubled hotspot of Deneb...

WHAT IS NEEDED

Shrouding the Light VP

FSPort main VP (fsport2_3.vp), also the FS1 music VP (fs1_warble.vp)

Lightspeeds Set 3 and Set 6 nebulae (green and blue)

Lightspeed's new Weapon Effects

Admiral Nelson's patch

WHAT TO DO

Place the nebulae files in the data/effects folder

Place the VP files in the your mod directory

Select the mod, start up the game, create a new pilot, select the campaign and enjoy!

So this is why you've been so quiet in TVWP, and AotD... It all makes sense now...

Anywho, I think I'll DL this, Homesick, and Sol: A History, since I have all week off from work, for some odd reason. I may actually play what everyone is ranting and raving about! :D

Heh.

Almost forgot - kudos to Lightspeed for his astounding backgrounds, the FSPort team for all the superb FS1 stuff (and new Vasudan weapons), and Dark for the excellent GVI Cheops. Tsk... where are my manners?

Ack! I forgot how crappy the Anubis really is... :(

Anywho, excellent so far. But the first mission, I think would have been better sans hud. ;)

A thought: Does this require SCP?

I really don't want to spend the hours upon hours it would take to download Open, regardless of how awesome it may be.

Ouch, I guess I've gotten too used to broadband. I remember the days when a 6MB download was a daunting thing.

Awesome! Not only is this a fairly cool campaign (playing as a Vasudan is always fun), but it also motivates me to finish my own freakin' campaign.

Great work, BR!

I'm having problems downloading the STL.zip. It keeps saying "source file could not be read" or something.

Pulled down BR's campaigns last night for Sol, Homesick, and this very impressive looking one.

Looks like all the modules for FSPort are required for it.  Good thing I got those too :).  Between SCP Main Campaign, Templar, FSPort: Great War, FSPort: Silent Threat, BWO, Derelict, Sol, Homesick, STL, and Inferno....I'm going to be busy :).

STL does require FSOpen. 'Twas built on and optimised for the 3.6 build.

Hmm. I'm stumped... not something to do with me zipping it up with WinAce, is it? That's the only vaguely relevant thing I can think of...

Actually I downloaded it successful from your webpage, but it doesn't seem to want to download the zip file from this thread for me.
