The 158th is hiring freders! 8/22/11
Hi!

I'd like to announce that 158th is now hiring freders and mission designers willing to help.
Currently we need ~3-6 freders in our team.
He're requiments that you should fit if you'd like to join us:

  • Variables usage
  • SCP Sexps usage
  • FREDer should put efforts in mission replayability

I'd like to see advanced fredding, very extended missions that aren't only action packed dogfight, but a good show of new SCP features and various dialogues. I'd be appriciated if fredder could make something more than just mission script, but it's not so much needed anyway ;)

If you'd like to join us post here. Mission example appreciated :)

EDIT:

Hey guys, everything in this post still holds true, even as of November 2010! Except I doubt Shiv wants your missions anymore, so if you're interested in FREDing for us, send a mission that demonstrates familiarity with the ideas listed above to [email protected]!

Right now we're looking at around 12 missions per act with a minimum of 3 more acts, but don't be afraid to apply if you think you've only got time for a mission or two; we need all the help we can get.

Thanks!

Hi everyone, all of you that frequent this board, we're still in crippling need of FREDders. If you haven't yet, check out this thread to see what ITNS is all about. Refer to the above information to see what we're looking for, if you feel you would like join us and FRED (or FRED and us depending on how you feel about FRED) don't be shy about inquiring.

Re: The 158th is hiring freders!
Actually, I can't develop, because I'm not so good in programming... But I can create some kind of campaign (missions and dialogues)... If you need me, just reply or send a PM

Try to have examples of that, if at all possible. Like if you've worked on a project for some random game before, point us to that, or a short story you've written, whatever.

Are you still hiring freders for the 158th campaign or is the staff full?
Do or do not, there is no try...

Re: The 158th is hiring freders!
I think I could do that...  :wtf: Is there a specific Freespace or FRED that I would have to run? (example: FSO, FS2, Fred2 or Fred open and so on?)

You mean a specific build of FRED2Open? As long as you're not using a really old build, or the retail FRED2, I don't think it matters much. :)

Yeah. I just want to you to show us your mission example and if it's good you're in. I also want to make sure you won't just leave community and disappear sometime becasue you're pretty new to the community.

Re: The 158th is hiring freders!
I know I'm new and why there may be some concerns. I don't intend on leaving soon as I really enjoy Freding even though I suck at everything else (Modeling and such.) Right now I'm working on a mission but I'm not sure how to get it on the forums while it can still be opened. If I can get it up I hope it'll pass the requirements...

I downloaded from Turey and I'm using the retail Fred 2, however I haven't tried Fred2Open yet. Is that the only one that would work (Fred2Open) or can I still use the retail fred2?

Re: The 158th is hiring freders!
You will most likely need a recent build of Fred2open; any 3.6.9 or 3.6.10 should be fine.

Re: The 158th is hiring freders!
Recent build (3.6.10 branch) is needed to work with us. We're using many fs2_open features including skyboxes, hi-res dds maps and other ones what aren't supported in retail FRED 2 Editor. Switching to the fred2_open version has mostly adventages and it makes fredding much easier. Also there's a lot of new fs2_open-only sexps that we may be using in 158th's missions. So fred2_open is a "must have".

Re: The 158th is hiring freders!
Ok. I've used the retail Fred2 the whole time, however I'm sure it'll be easy to switch to Fred2Open. I've taken a look at the SEXP usage and there is a little more to get used to but it shouldn't be to hard. And is it okay that my test mission was made in the retail Fred2? I've had some errors when I try to open the project made with the retail Fred2 in Fred2Open. Is that normal or should I switch to Fred2Open for the rest of my missions?

I have the Freespace2_Open_3_6_10 but I only have fred2_open _3_6_9. Do you know where I could get fred2_open_3_6_10 so I can look and get used to it, or will 3_6_9 work with what your using?
