The heat here is incredible..and I don't have air conditioning in my room. Bathing in the sea helps only for a short while.

I can't think, I can work - I don't even tun on my Pc untill later in the day when the heat wears off a bit!!!

Gah.. I have barely managed to put these 5 missions in a respecateble shape. That's enough - I'm sending them in as tehy are.

Yay, pressure! I thrive on it. :nervous:

Anyway, I am nearly done with the mission. It should be ready for submission later tonight or tomorrow morning. :)

EDIT: Goob, would it possible for you to say who has submitted, just out of curiousity?

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

You'd need a damn good reason why you couldn't finish it earlier before I'd even consider it. My dog ate FRED just won't cut it :p

And I thought I was starting late a week into July.  Why the hell did everyone decide to start two days before the deadline?  FRED is a hobby, unlike a lab report, so why the procrastination?

The problem sometimes can be hardware related.....my earlier rig couldn't support FS2open, or FRED2 very well either. I only got my new rig working on the 29th, and then I had to re-install all my applications, leaving me only half of sunday (the remaining half was spent out) to actually get to any serious FREDding effort.

At the current rate of work and what-not, hte earliest I can submit an original mission would be the 7th or 9th at the least.....but I've already submitted a sub-par entry, so at least I got some bases covered :/

I don't see any sign of it on Gmail at the moment. The address does seem to be working though.

After the contest is over, I believe they will be making available all of the missions for download along with comments and ratings on each mission (and of course, who won).

I can understand the procrastination, being a hardcore procrastinator myself. But this time around I just got it over and done with right away. Doing missions takes more time than I'd like, so I didn't want to leave it to the end and run out of time.

Tonight is the deadline though. Unless Goober/kara/Blaise give an extension on it, I think tonight's the latest it can go in.

There will be no extensions.  The contest has been in the news for six weeks now. :p

Maybe this will inspire people to submit their missions early in next year's contest. ;)
