Release: ASSM - Aginor's Saga simulator mission
Hi guys!

I just noticed I forgot to post that one here.


There were numerous requests for a simple simulator mission for Saga already, so I decided to create one.

You can choose between different ships, weapons, numbers of wingmen and enemies ingame.
The mission briefing tells you everything you need to know about the mission.

If you have any remarks or feature requests feel free to post your ideas here.
I know that by HLP's standards that mission is poorly done, I put it together in just some hours. I will improve it over time.

(and yes, I know that ASSM was a sex story group on usenet. Just sayin' because there are some people here who might be old enough to still remember usenet. I was surprised over at the CIC that someone knew that group after all those years :D )

Install: Just put in in your "/my documents/Volition/Wing Commander Saga/data/missions" folder. Create the folder if necessary.
Then you can choose the mission in the tech room / mission simulator.

Have fun!

Did they use SEXPs too?

On second thoughts, don't answer that question. I don't want to know. :p

Re: Release: ASSM - Aginor's Saga simulator mission
I also considered to call it "ASS - Aginor's Saga Simulator" (which means "ace" in German) but I decided to use that because of its english meaning which makes it even harder to google and also because of filters that may not like it.

Anyway, any remarks on the mission? I know it is far from perfect and I'm willing to improve it so it becomes a really great simulator for people who can't (or don't want to) use FRED.

And I'll also include a Kilrathi version in my mod of course.

How about ASM, Aginor's simulator mission?

Good idea, the problem with that is that it is the acronym for approximately two dozen other things.
I'll think about it.

And can we please stop to talk about the silly 5-second-choice name and talk about the mission? :D


..ok, nobody downloaded it yet. That's ok. If someone does please tell me what you think about it. :)

The concept is pretty cool, and it's kind of similar to my Tactics Training mission, but I found the "fly to a jump point to select your mission" thing very confusing.

It would probably help if you had posted it where the intended public for WCS is.

Re: Release: ASSM - Aginor's Saga simulator mission
I have. And I also received some short comments there already. :)

I just posted it here as well to receive some critic by people who are actually FREDers themselves.
In other places I'm often the one-eyed among the blind since there are very few people who can do it better than me. Here there are plenty of guys who are far better FREDers than I am so I thought i might give it a try.

Re: Release: ASSM - Aginor's Saga simulator mission
It would also probably help if WCS had released FRED. People can hardly give you advice on how to improve your mission if they can only look at it in notepad or ingame. Not to mention the number of FRED tricks that are possible nowadays in FSO and we don't know if they work or not in WCS.

Re: Release: ASSM - Aginor's Saga simulator mission
Unnecessary in your opinion.

In all cases, not informing us of the FRED release, and coming to us for FREDing help, is definitely somewhere in the "you're doing it wrong" category.

Now that we have it, I'll try to take a look at your mission sometime this week-end.

Re: Release: ASSM - Aginor's Saga simulator mission
I like it, the only request I would like to make is  the ability to select multiple enemy capships of the same type.
May the Force be with you

Re: Release: ASSM - Aginor's Saga simulator mission
Thanks for your answers, guys.
And I'm really sorry, I didn't notice that you didn't know about the mission editor release. I thought Tolwyn mentioned it here as well, and nobody complained about me talking about my campaign in progress all the time, saying "how do you FRED Saga, FRED isn't released for Saga yet!" For me it was a given fact, so sorry if I offended you.

@TheForce
That's already possible, it is just not possible to select multiple ones of the same class yet. I'll think of an easy to use way to make that work.

Well, you have a WCS badge, which pretty much implies you have access to the WCS modding resources we don't.

I guess that speaks a lot about internal communication on your side.

Re: Release: ASSM - Aginor's Saga simulator mission
@MatthTheGeek:
Could you please stop being rude?
I got the badge because I did interface art, medals, badges, squad logos, uniform stuff and some other 2D work years ago. The main work on the mod between 2010 and release was done by Keldor, Tolwyn and Scooby.
I started to learn to FRED just three months ago and I got the Saga FRED not a day earlier than anyone else. I couldn't check out the repository for years because I have such a slow internet connection so I only got the things I needed. FRED did not fall in that category.
So I was hardly involved in the work of the team in the last time so please just stop to make assumptions about the communication between team members when you don't have a clue how it worked. Tolwyn has worked on this mod for ten years and if he doesn't tell me stuff he doesn't tell me stuff. It is not like I was anyone important here ever. It is a great honor for me that I'm allowed to have that badge because I did only that small part.
And Saga is released, give the team a break. I can totally understand why Tolwyn doesn't want to hear anything about Saga in the next months.

You're the one being rude here, blaming me for perfectly legitimate assumptions. How was I supposed to know that you never benefited from what seems a minimum to get as a team member ?
