When you've got time  :D


Well, I'd also like to take a look at those missions :)

Yup, I'll pm it to all of you.
. . . about 70% completed. Done briefings, CB, and debriefings, essential plot core and most of the messages and events. Background completed too.  :)

Re: Forum Moderator and passoff
Here is my mission, titled . . . The First of Many
It is an adaptation of a chapter I read in the book, "The Crow," by Alison Croggon, where the Black Army after the sack of Jerr-Niken move on to the Il Dara Wall. However, I had to change some things, else might as well read a book!  ;)

I've decided to allow anyone to test it - so I'm putting it here.
  The First of Many

It is "winnable" on medium difficulty, but only if you do the right things! (sort of  :nervous:)

Actually, I might post a walkthrough now, so when you play it, you can see why I did certain things.


It is ideal for you to check the weapons and ships available, because really, at the end of the mission, you need all the hull integrity you can get.

For the first 2 minutes, just listen to the radio-chatter that your wingmates are making. Also, have a good look around at the defences your Cluster is composed of, so when the enemy turns up, you know where to fight.
When the Black Army Scout arrives, again, listen to the radio chatter. In about 30secs, it will disappear into subspace. There should be a "tense" silence before the BA Cai (for Black Army Cai) arrives.

*Spectacular Display!!* The BA Cai, along with its complement of corvettes, renamed Dogsoldiers, and cruisers appear out of subspace about 4000-5000m away from the terrified defenders. However, due to the tactics of the Black Army, the Cai just sends in waves and waves of fighters to attack.
The charge normally takes about 40secs, so you can plan out your strategy. It is a VERY GOOD idea to order your wingmen to guard the Amdridh, one of your cruisers, as 1. Your few fighters stay together 2. There is anti-fighter beams nearby. 3. At the end, you will have many surviving wingmen

There should be heavy fighting, but do not go beyond 2000m of the Amdridh, because it is highly likely you will be killed. So stay close to the Amdridh.

Finally, when the fighter and bomber wings are down, sit back and relax as the surviving pilots nervously await what the BA Cai is going to do. Finally, it decides to charge into the Cluster. The remaining RBCs and the SCv Ir-Ytan is standing by to try and cripple the Cai as much as they can.

However, a Dogsoldier (corvette) jumps directly in the middle of the Cluster along with several wings of fighters and bombers and attacks the Cluster. You are ordered to make a deathrun to the jump node, about 4000m from the Amdridh. Banshee wing, is ordered specifically to destroy you, so don't dwadle!

Close in on the Il Dara Jump, a navbuoy to about 1000m and engage your subspace drive. It triggers a red-alert, and perhaps I'll make the mission after that in my spare time.

Walkthrough end.

This particular mission is supposed to have some shock effect to it - although since I beta-tested it for about 12 times now, the shocks have sort of worn off.
Have a nice play with it, and perhaps enjoy it as well!  :D

Error Compilation by testers so far . . .

* The event for making Reaper and Banshee wing specifically destroy Alpha 1 occurs to early, and the player dies too easily.
Suggestion - Make event occur about 10 secs later to give a decent head-start.

* Shar wing's first wave usually lives right through the entire heavy battle, and its second wave will then appear right after Shar's first wave destroyed, which wastes about 40secs of mission time, and bores the player.
Suggestion - Change number of waves of Shar Wing to 1.

These are just some of the mistakes I've made in the FREDding part of the mission. Any additional problems, I'll update this post later on

Re: Forum Moderator and passoff
It's got a pretty hilarious fantasy theme that had me snickering all the way through though... Not necessarily a bad thing.

And yes, it is a very good mission. Well designed and balanced.

Well, working on 3 mods (MT & my own work) made my FS2-folder a little bit... messy. Messy enough that I can't open the mission in FRED / play it. However, remembering someone's custom title (I think it was Goober...) "Real Fredders use notepad", I just checked the mission that way.  :D

From what I saw, it looks like good work.

I know the importance of Notepad(I used it several times to fix FRED bugs) but testing is pretty vital.

eliex is yours, then ;)
