Want to Join Fate of the Galaxy? Staff Positions Open!
We're looking for a few good people to fill in some areas we're lacking in.  All applications must be accompanied by a submission of previously created work.  It does not necessarily have to be "published" work, but anything you've created that we can take a look at to see if you're fit for the job.  Prove to us that you're what we're looking for!

The following positions are open:
3d Graphics Artist
  • See our WIP and work needed list for available and needed ships.
  • If you can't model and texture the whole thing to completion, we're unlikely to have anyone on the team that has the time and ability to do it for you.
  • The best way to bring your work to our attention is to simply post your WIP or completed material in the forum for feedback.
  • If nothing in our work needed list strikes your fancy, be awayre that quality submissions are always appreciated and often accepted for ships that aren't currently in our lineup.

2d Graphics Artist
  • UI refresh
  • Planet backgrounds
  • Cockpit interior design

Please submit your applications in a private message to Chief1983

Please also note that we are not currently accepting applications for the following:  "Idea guys", "Star Wars experts" or Testers (invite only currently)
This may change in the future.

I can convert models, provided they're ready for conversion (textured, no mesh errors, etc, preferably not having to play around with the hierarchy in TrueSpace as well).

Re: Want to Join the Star Wars Conversion? Staff Positions Open!
A lot of our model artists are just that, artists, and as such, we'll need someone to point out where models need to be fixed, such as things with hierarchy, mesh errors and the like, hence the note in there about converters working closely with said modelers.

I can notice those things, I just won't convert a model with problems.  I could easily point things like that out to modelers.  It really helps when the modelers themselves know what has to be done to successfully convert a model though (even if they can't do it themselves).

Re: Want to Join the Star Wars Conversion? Staff Positions Open!
Actually I've wanted to familiarize myself with that process as well, maybe you could help me out with it too.  I'm not so creative but I think I could get pretty good at cleaning things up.

Um, I don't see it listed but do you,  :( Please say yes  :( , need testers, .tbl coders / testers, FRED2 peeps, or anything some one with little artistic talent can do?  Also I have a conversion formula for XWA stats to Free Space 2 Stats :cool: !!

PS: I have tons reference material that I can scavenge stuff from.
I've been part of the FS2 Comunity before but have been out of touch these last years and want to get back in the cockpit.

Re: Want to Join the Star Wars Conversion? Staff Positions Open!
Sorry but I don't think someone with that skill set is going to be very productive for us at the moment.  Feel free to drop by IRC and just hang out though.  Sometimes people just tend to grow on us :)

Hello, I have sent two inquiries now for the composer and sound engineer position to brandx0 (I couldn't find chief1983's email address).  I fear that my messages may have been swallowed by spam filters.  Would you like me to resend the original message?

Music Composer
  • Duties include creating an original sound track for the game.
  • The Team is looking for a music selection which is reminiscent of the original Star Wars sound track, but neither a direct copy, nor a rapid departure from the sound of the movies.

Sound Effects Artist
  • Duties will include creating or sampling sound effects to put into the game for weapons, atmospherics, and interface.

Have you ever tried contacing Erik "blackhole" McClure? :)

Links to our emails and to PM us on the forum are located to the left of any message we've posted.  If you weren't contacted by Brand, feel free to resend to both of us or send it as a Personal Message, I always get those.

Why doesn't VasudanAdmiral help you in the first place? Have you already pinged him? :)

He has helped us with a random request here and there so far, but he's involved in numerous other projects and we need someone with more time to dedicate to FotG.

Nope, but that position isn't one we're currently in dire need of, and will probably hold off actively seeking help for it until later.

Re: Want to Join the Star Wars Conversion? Staff Positions Open!
If you want a sound designer or some sounds, just let me know. Here's a sample set, i just put this together in a couple minutes-it's not my best work, just a test. I took into consideration the following things

-The way they sound in the movies
-The fact that X-Wing and Deathseed use the same engines
-The fact that the X-Wing and E-Wing are similar fighters with similar engines
-The fact that the Y-Wing and DIE-Wing use different engines from the engines of other ships, and they have the same type of engines
-The A-Wing has HUGE FREAKIN ENGINES

So download it. This isn't my best work, I can do better.

probably because the A-Wing is a fighter reserved for beasts and pimps only

Re: Want to Join Fate of the Galaxy? Staff Positions Open!
hey, can I ask how you make those sound effects?
I know a little on how to use sound editors, but can't create a something from *pure* scratch.
I did take some sound effects from the movies and extended them (like if someone starts talking at the end of one, I have been able to fix that). but never really created one from scratch.

Do you still have models which are not converted? Or you expect a lot to come? I mean: is that RED text still valid?
