Ask in here.

Q: What is the present status and anticipated release date of the TVWP Chapter 1?
A: Chapter One has a total of 30 missions.  These present status of these are:
Released: 11
Playtesting: 18
WIP: 0
Not started: 1

All other required mods are complete,  With the possible exception of an intro and outro cutscene.
We hope for a full release of Chapter 1 in Q3 2008.

Q: How can I help?
A: The TVWP is always in need of quality help, especially those with FRED skills and modeling skills.

If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

I hope not to get killed/flamed for this, but:

Well, was just curious. As Adm. Nelson claimed that you hope to release Chapter 1 in Q1 of 2008. And seeming as it's almost the end of Q1 ...

Anyway, another question:

Q: Are you going to update those pictures in the database section of your site? You released a demo, but the pictures are outdated.

Yes, we have had some availability issues.  One mission remains to be created in Act II, and one mission remains WIP for Act III.  We have done a bunch of playtesting and editing of the Act II missions, along with some table bugfixing and model recompilation.  One new mission was recently FREDed from scratch and playtested. Availability remains an issue; I again have a business trip to India coming up Monday which will put me out of pocket for a couple of weeks.  Nevertheless just two missions are incomplete, with the others in various states of polish.  The ETA is really dependent on freeing up people from RL issues.

Sounds very good

Well, I'll just keep haunting these forums then

Best of luck to you all, TVWP team.

 
Quick question as long as this is here. Will this campaign be compatible with FS2 Retail, or just SCP? (And sorry if I'm reasking an old question.)

Installation
TVWP requires the SCP, version 3.6.9.
Sound like no-retail.

It kind of has to be SCP due to some of the weapons and other features of the campaign (no sensors and such).  Not that downloading SCP should be too difficult.

I just played this campaign last night for the first time, I have to say im impressed. But I'm just curious on this, the time elapsed between chapter 1 and  7 is quite a long time. Operation Thresher happend right before the Descent FreeSpace campaign starts. Is each chapter another campaign?

Apparently each chapter will be 1 long campaign, which is separated into two or three "Acts", consisting of 10 or so missions. Each act will be released individually, like a minicampaign, so that we have something to play while waiting for the next release.

That was the original plan, but at this point it looks like the chapters will only be 10 missions long, max.  Also, we may not necessarily release them in order.

And incidentally, I don't know of any non-FSPort campaigns that are trying to remain compatible with retail.

     7 chapters? 3 acts? 10 missions each? 210 missions? Damn that'd take a long time to do . . . what goob says makes a bit more sense to me.

Well, I was simply making an assumption based on the release plans of the first Chapter/Prologue.

Only if you're willing to do it Topgun.

Voice Acting is really hard to do, takes lots of time, energy and volunteers.  It just may not be doable.

I was bored one day and noticed that the Mustang Alpha used the same maps as the Apollo... So I decided to go slap on Procyon Insurgency's PCA Apollo's maps. And got this thing:



I dunno, thought you might find it interesting...

Neato. :)

That's the kind of old skool FS modding that's rarely tried these days.
