Personally I don't like having Terrans having a monarchy. But you know.

But the presence of rich people who gained power has not to be excluded. There are people that want to believe in something.

It's 184 compressed not a 500mb download.

Yes hence the thread title :)
I suppose it does in a way, since the missions for this aren't really compatable with the current version.

Is there place for another tester? :)

BTW, have you decided whether to use nameplates? And for loading screens? (however, for the loading screens I think you'll have to wait... I'm currently having problems making Steady's ones)

I'll probably need many testers for this

Nameplates are currently possible on the Fenris, Leviathan (upgraded model), Orion, Auriga and Nemesis. Additional nameplate support maybe added at a later date, but I didn't want to delay producing this modpack for adding the nameplates.

If you need all this time, I have the opportunity of completing SotGW....There are 11/40 missions but I have to change many things due to Woo's add ons.

I recommend DySkO. I think he can do the tester admirably...right, DySkO?

This probably sounds like a noob question, but what do I need to look out for in the test run other than crashes and spelling/grammar errors (no offense intended :))?

If it's a short-term test (my three months of ultra-slackamania free time is almost up :(), you could use me as a volunteer. Besides, if I want to help out, I've got to start somewhere...

Testers need to:
Find crashes
Find missing files
Test game Balance
Test POF data is complete and working
Test compatability with the FS Port

Testing will be long term.

Point taken. :)

Long term, eh... :doubt: Depending on what happens after my holidays, I may or may not be able to volunteer for a long-term test. But thanks anyway.

Find crashes
My friends call me the "crash magnet" :doubt:

Find missing files
When somebody (LieutenantGeneralMobius) made an error in a Steadfast table entry for the Imset bomber (pointed to a non-existant POF file), I found it immediatly even if it was not supposed to be in the mission I had so far.

Test game Balance
I think this is the most difficult part...

Test POF data is complete and working
This means see if all textures are correct, if all the gunpoints are where they should be, if all the thrusters are where there are the engines and so on, right?

Test compatability with the FS Port
It's too easy! (ahem... you mean testing all FSPort missions with INF:A, right? :nervous:)

Crashes - Should be rare and probably caused by something being missing
Missing Files - Quite difficult to do as I'm talking about things like sound effects and weapons trails which the debugger might not complain about
Game Balance - The big one as much of the Shivan and Vasudan stuff is still experimental
POF Data - Things like docking, engine glows going out when disabled etc
Port - Yeah more or less playing it to see that it is working right. Though the missions have been debugged I haven't played FS1 in years so aren't 100% sure everything is working right.
