Your Questions Answered!
Ask your questions here and we will do our best to answer them.

Here's some basics.

What is it?
Between the Ashes is a reconstruction era mod. There are a lot of different events that could be covered during that time period and since we don't want to play our hand too early, we won't tell you exactly what we'll be covering. But anyone with a general knowledge of FS1 and FS2 can probably guess some of the major plot points.

How long will it be?
We have a few stories to tell, but for the sake of making progress we've split it up into several chapters. The general target for a chapter is about 15 missions or so.

Will there be new weapons or ships?
There will be some new weapons that we've made, but mostly we'll be using models and assets readily available around HLP.

Will you be sticking to canon?
As much as possible yes. We will extrapolate in some areas, but we are trying to keep within the confines of FS1 and FS2 canon. However, this mod assumes ST:R over ST.

Obvious questions first: Shivans or beams?

No Shivans.

Beams eventually.

Ooh, shiny forum.

Character-driven campaign or Alpha One* campaign?

Do you plan to use FS1-era fighters throughout, or introduce a generation of strikecraft in between the FS1 and FS2 ships?

Mostly and "Alpha One" campaign.

The fighters will merge from FS1 to FS2.

And yes, there will be cake.

With this project, will you still be able to continue work on the upgraded cutscenes?
If I agreed with you, we would both be wrong

You underestimate me! This simply means that I have levelled up. I learned new attacks but didn't end up having to replace cutscene creation...

mjn.mixael wants to learn the move Making Campaigns. But mjn.mixael can only learn four moves.

Forget a move in order to learn Making Campaigns?
-Eating
-Sleeping
-Posting
-Making Cutscenes

:p

That's easy.. Sleeping. I only do that 4 - 6 hours a night anyway...

Oh jeeze.. I'm becoming Zacam.

Actually, I was thinking, might BTA incorporate some elements from madbomber's fiction? he has a comprehensive list of events that occur between the factions as well as events of that 'lost fleet' scenario... Also, perhaps some elements of eagle takes flight could be preserved in that timeline!

Just a thought...

I've never seen his stuff. Though now I'm curious.. I'd be interested in reading it to see how many of my ideas are similar to his.

I'm pretty familiar with his stuff, I read through a lot of it. We could talk about it, if I ever appear on IRC again...
