Official FRED Contest Announcement
Ah, the glories of retail. :D What would I do without it? :drevil:
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

I submitted a mission. A rushed decision, an hour ago, I was not even thinking of this FRED Contest and now... I submitted a mission to the contest instead of releasing it.

Before I forget:
You do not even touch the missions until the 1st of August, is it right? Question: Can I update the mission file I sent as many times as I desire?

Yeah, I suppose it's best if we don't start judging until August.  Feel free to update as many times as you want.

Go nuts and hack something? :p

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

Ship placement, basic scripting, and arrival cues are done.  I'll do a preliminary balance check later on this evening.  After that, it's onto dialogue, briefings, and finalized scripting.  I'd say another two days to beta, followed by a week of me getting ever more fed up with the mission, as I root out the bugs.  I probably won't have time to make a second submission, unless the first one is exceptionally easy to debug.

Though somewhat off-topic, I'm wondering if HLP has any plans in the works to set up a replacement for the now-derelict Volition Watch mission archive.  It would be nice to have a centralized place to submit missions again, and the staff and member reviews were always quite valuable when it came to revising campaigns and stand-alone missions.

No use. OGL isn't supported very well by my on-board card, hence not allowing FRED to start up at all....

Doesnt matter now though, I'm on duty. I bet I can at least get he framework done in retail though, but beta-testing will be a ***** till I can get a new card on the 25th or 26th (when my mom's coming over)

Don't you have some retail action?

I should have a mission to submit within the next couple of days. I think it's more/less balanced and bug free (maybe :).  I just have to do up a nebula background and it should be good to go.

How many entries have been submitted so far? Or is that a secret? ;7

If you want to beta test check out the FRED Academy thread. We always need Beta Testers and that way there's no worries about you helping someone too much.
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.

:bump:

Well, maybe we can reveal a bit. ;) We only have three submissions so far, so unless we get more missions, we may have to award those guys first, second, and third place. :p

I have until tomorrow afternoon to finish mine up. Then I'm gone on vacation for a week. Thankfully it is almost complete. Just a few more finishing touches left...

Well I sent in my one mission, but I don't think I'll have time for any others. I can't think up a good enough idea for any of 'em right now anyway.

And hey, if you guys don't get your missions finished, I guess that means I win by default! ;)

I fredded a FS1-mission ages ago. :doubt: Don't know if I can dig it up in time (possibly not).
Won't have time to make anything larger for at least 1 1/2 months.:( :( :(

Well, anyway - making missions includes storytelling, which I'm not good at... :sigh:
