Re: So..Who's Modding/FREDding for Diaspora?
I and several of my friends have recently downloaded this mod and we are all wondering the same thing. Is it possible to convert the singleplayer campaign to be multiplayer coop?

Re: So..Who's Modding/FREDding for Diaspora?
In the Download pack there is a link to a website with a FRED tutorial. There should be something mentioned there ;)

If I remember correctly it's in Diaspora > Data > Freddocs > Index


Hope this helps with your Single player to Multiplayer Co-op issue!
So say we all!

 
Re: So..Who's Modding/FREDding for Diaspora?
Wow, that was quick. Thanks - we'll have a go :)

Edit: just noticed that the 'Multiplayer Walkthrough' header is not actually a link, and that is the part we need help with :s

Re: So..Who's Modding/FREDding for Diaspora?
Yeah, there was a tutorial on multiplayer planned but I never had the time to write it. The differences between MP and SP are quite small though to be honest.

I'm currently looking at whether it's possible to convert mission 2 into a Multiplayer coop mission.

Well if anyone is interested... I'm making a plan concept for my own Battlestar model and a 2 mission campaign for it... :nervous: oh man, I hope I actually stick to this long enough to finish it

Re: So..Who's Modding/FREDding for Diaspora?
Is there any way to get the Cylon animation from the Raider to play in a mission?  I have a mission where the player is an unknown Cylon and part way through they get activated.  I'd like if possible to play that animation for a couple seconds before all the Colonial ships turn Hostile.  If not that, then a red wash over the player's camera would work but I can't find anything in FRED which could do it.

Re: So..Who's Modding/FREDding for Diaspora?
dont know if the cylon hud stuff can be activated like that, but a quick fade to red and back may do the trick? change --> cutscenes --> fade out & fade in
take me out to the black,
tell 'em i ain't coming back,
i don't care, i'm still free,
you can't take the sky from me

Re: So..Who's Modding/FREDding for Diaspora?
Yeah fade in/out should do the trick, thanks.  Didn't even think of that.  I wouldn't think the Cylon thing would be possible, but it's worth asking about :D

Depends on how good at modding you are, you could table a version of the MK VII with the required cylon features and then swap to it for a few seconds. :)

Or in this case the Assault Raptor, yeah... hmm.  Sounds good, I just don't know how to go about that level of modding.  I've only just started FREDing since Diaspora was released.

 
Re: So..Who's Modding/FREDding for Diaspora?
First post so thanks to Diaspora Development for the amazing and free game. Love it.

I started some mission editing, with a particular interest in making some coop missions, but I am not sure how to export them into MP and / or how to set playable slots for my buddies. Sorry if it's written somewhere already, but having trouble finding this info.

The Mission Specs Editor allows you to choose the type of the mission.

In the Ships Editor tick player ship for the other wingmen to add more players.

Re: So..Who's Modding/FREDding for Diaspora?
I'm fumbling through, I'll probably string a campaign together as training, I'm doing most of mine as co op from the get go, and once that's done, well this seems like it might be a new hobby...

I'm getting a condenser mic and have a couple people that want to VA that I think will be pretty good at it, so I should be able to put out voice acted missions soon.
