You forget, the Vasudan voices ingame are sythensized and generic background rumblings...


     If the player is flying as a Vasudan, shouldn't it be the earthers that are synthesized??

...Dude. BR, do you know what makes you awesome? It's the fact that you pop out of nowhere with full, completed campaigns randomly. :D Just what this community needs if ya ask me. >>

So many projects out there that focus on MODs, which make them take YEARS to complete. MODs are good and all, but without good missions...they're kinda worthless. And when a project is based on mods, like I've said, they take a long time to complete. We need more things like this. Camps that use no, or existing mods that can get out in months instead of years.

After dinner I shall download this on our main comp, cause it's the only one that can use FSO. >>;

True, although that might suggest that the briefings et al ought to be written in Vasudan. :ick:

But, if I do go with that, which would probably be a better option, we're looking at:

Commodore Cooper
Righteous Fire
Munificence
Ironclad
Throckmorton
Kappa 1 / Theta 1 ('cause Theta 1 is one line long and never speaks to Kappa 1)
Zeta 1 / Foresight ('cause these two never speak to each other either)

So that's seven. A much better idea. :yes: My thanks. :)

Any takers?

I'd recommend translating the Vasudan anyway if you're doing the voice acting thing (but one person can be the voice for all of the translators).  Doing a vasudan synth over the terran voices would be cool, but it should be kept to low enough levels to not be annoying.
who needs a signature? ;)

Oh, indeed. Translation has to be done well, else you end up with Admiral Khafre in FS2, who is practically unintelligible.

Eight, then. :yes: I'll do one... so I need seven others.

I always loved the monotone voices of the FS1 Vasudans. I'd love to reproduce them! (but am microphone shy)

:lol: That made me think of a great shortcut... just chop up the untranslated Vasudan sound file from Volition and use it for all your messages.  Easy! :D

I suppose you could count me in for something cool, seeing as I'll have to be doing voicing for Angels soon enough anyway.

I signed up to voice-act for The Chaos Gate campaign, so I should be able to lend a hand here, too :).  I've yet to play through the campaign yet, but from the rave reviews I've heard so far, I can't wait to :D.

I would volenteer my crappy voice, but I don't have a microphone. Oh well.
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

Here's an odd question I have about the voice acting...  
Would everyone do thier own post-processing or is one person going to do all the post?  The reason I ask why is there is the possibility of having a lot of variances in the vasudan synth voice over, particularly in volume and pitch.  It might be a good idea if one or two people actually did the post processing, to make it sound professional.  Unless that's not what you're aiming for.

Well, it may turn out that we only get the Terrans voiced, and that the Vasudans will have to be stuck with cannibalised Zod-speak. In that case, translators won't really be an issue.

I always thought that the Vasudan pilot death-yell in FS1 should have had a translation in that monotone voice. :lol:
