RELEASE - Ghost Revenants


Finished testing and fixed most of the bugs. The French version will come in a later version (since it also needs to be fixed).
See mod testing thread in modding forum if you want more informations, but everything should be here too.

Context :
Many years after our last fight with the shivans, everyone is at peace except pirates , and rebel organisations.
The life of merchant is sometimes more boring that we could imagine. You found a way to live your life as you wanted, but the strange artifact you got recently is gonna put you in the worse situations.
Because you're the chosen...

Features :
-A 5 Act campaign of 7-9 missions.
-new fighters : 16 new fighters usable , and 4 for other races
-new capital ships : 1 cruiser , corvette destroyer for each side
-new weapons : 6 common weapons and 1 special weapon for advanced fighters
-skirmish missions in the tech room

IMPORTANT :
the mod uses lightspeed nebulae pack. Make sure you have it installed while playing this mod

This mod has been heavily influenced by Transcend and Sync campaign and keep the same kind of story
It's my first mod so there may be errors, inconsistencies, bugs or others things. Just report them back here and I'll try to fix them as soon as possible. I'm french and the English reviewer didn't report me back yet, so be prepared for bad English in the campaign.
I created this mod with SCP build and fs2_open_3_6_9r_080611_W.exe. Older builds may cause problems in the campaign so you should use this build or more recent one.
I recommend playing this campaign on easy difficulty or medium.

Temporary Link (I'll try to upload it elsewhere soon)
Megaupload link
other link
the campaign has been uploaded to FreeSpaceMods

PS : if someone has an idea on how could I upload the mod on sectorGame and Freespacemods, just tell me......

some screenshots :

Re: RELEASE - Ghost Revenants
should be the final version but.... who knows xD.
I prefer having many many many people playing it and have the usual patch before uploading elsewhere.

As Griffon said there could be bugs and grammar errors, this one's not the final(read "definitive") version...

Re: RELEASE - Ghost Revenants
normally you should be able to play the whole campaign without error (Stormkeeper has tested it entirely without having to ask me to fix a mission)
Beside, another tester should give me a report with all the English errors of the mod. I didn't have any news of him since but I would implement those corrections to the current version

Well I don't think the product is 100% complete if there's need for futher testing and grammar-checking. ;)

Ah, here we go. Take it or leave it. At least I'd deem it safer than those unpredictable Megauploads and such.

If the product is incomplete, it shouldn't be released. Touché.

Re: RELEASE - Ghost Revenants
3 persons managed to play the entire campaign without problem so testing should be fine.
Grammar checking, if someone wants to do it, he'll be welcomed (because I don't think the other tester is doing it currently) but the native English speaker who played the mod understood what I meant in my messages.

That's why I released it.

Re: RELEASE - Ghost Revenants
As you probably know I'm not in the right position to help on that :(

 
Re: RELEASE - Ghost Revenants
Italy ???? why does it matter ? You're probably able to find errors I didn't find myself.

EDIT : as I said it's my first mod/campaign. So if the state of the mod is not RELEASED, please tell me, I'll ask an admin to delete the thread

Re: RELEASE - Ghost Revenants
I suppose if no one else is willing to help, I could try to find the time to do some grammar checking. Not a native speaker, but fluent. And it is as you said: different people spot different mistakes.

as I said it's my first mod/campaign. So if the state of the mod is not RELEASED, please tell me, I'll ask an admin to delete the thread
I wouldn't worry about it. If it has passed "beta testing" as you seemed to imply, you can safely release it. There have been numerous issues with Blue Planet and it's still one of the most popular campaigns.

Had the campaign been in Italian I would have grammar-checked it like an adult... :(

No, you don't need to delete the thread, you simply need to bring your work into a definitive status  :)

Griffon did pretty well for his first campaign. When I tested it I found no ground breaking bugs, just minor annoyances and issues.

Re: RELEASE - Ghost Revenants
Psst. Now that the campaign has been uploaded to FreeSpaceMods, you could add the mirror to the first post as well.

Also, I've gone through the first five missions, fixing typos and grammar errors when necessary. Don't get me wrong: so far it has been quite understandable, which is of course the most important part. I just tend to think that typos, grammar errors and otherwise awkward expressions eat up the atmosphere of the campaign. I'll let you know when I'm finished.
