Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
Oooooh, I like this. By diversifying the manner in which each character goes berserk, I think JAD is going to be much more fun to play(This shouldn't be physically possible, but this is JAD).

This talk of a new character is interesting, perhaps we will get to see even crazier missions now.
<Axem> yet still more insightful than #hard-light

<Axem> jad2.23 will just be cat videos

<DahBlount> So
<DahBlount> JAD2.2 is like that
<Axem> maybe
<Axem> it can be whatever you like!
<DahBlount> A Chocolate Sundae?
<Axem> sure

Instead of writing 1000 words, I'll just post a pic or two and let that count instead.

Is... that a Shivan mushroom in the 1st pic? 

Also, is Anna flying a Rhea? I thought she (being the presumed new character) had the Iapetus? :)

Is that a beam with just a chargeup glow and no beam sections to create that energy sphere-y thing? Clever. Very clever.

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
No, this Beta Tester is not a funguy at all...

...A-anyone? Hello?

Also no, Delta 1 is still flying his Rhea. His partner for this mission, Anna, aka Zeta 1, is flying something. What it could be is anything... Iapetus? Orion? Cargo container? Who knows...

JSRNerdo: Sorry to disappoint but its just an engine glow. :(

Oh my, I just thought that you might actually add thrusters to a cargo container, and stick a pilot in... :D

Why do I have a feeling that that's going to appear in the next release?

You've got to watch out for those cargo containers. They were deadly in Deus Ex Machina. :p

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
Hold onto something stable and ensure there is proper ventilation because I am about to blow your minds with the highest level of amazing mission design.

Let me introduce to you... escort missions!

While secluded in a mountain cabin, I thought to myself "boy these capital ships are a little TOO self sufficient, what I had some that couldn't hit or kill any fighters?" Then it dawned on me! Have the player "escort" (trademark pending) the helpless larger ship.

So get ready for 45 missions of varying escort action!

Here we see the exciting prelude to an escort mission with a Faustus-class ship as it heads off to the local ship wash! Will it make it back alive? Only you can decide its fate!

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
If anyone can make Escort Missions that don't immediately make the player go for www.freespace2.com, it'd be you. (Or one of the decent number of other excellent FREDders on this board. But in this particular case you. Since you're FREDding this particular mission and campaign.)

Good to see that JAD is still alive. Still looking forward to it, escort missions or no! :D
"We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, 'I know this is not politically correct, but...' in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
Local ship wash eh?
Will we be able to trade tacos to get our fighters washed properly?

Cause you know... all modern games come with open world shenanigans and stuff. Please no DLC!

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
There is still a critical taco shortage at this time, so no dice there.

And while that mission isn't quite open-world set, there will be a mission with quasi-open worldish elements (using my system viewer script of course!).

In this mission Holley has been wronged by a jerk Beta Tester, so Holley needs to scour the Akibara system to hunt him down with extreme prejudice and exact revengeance.


(Day 0 DLC still to be announced)

Animeish crossovers! Shoot him... wait.... *remembers avengelion(or smthg)* Nope, everything fine.

Hopes that DLC/OVA/STANDALONE will be free of charge. No Taco extortions!
