youd be suprised about the 3 pirates, especially if one of them is a player and the other 2 have ship gaurdian.
Shut up, nobody's supposed to know about that! :nervous: :nervous: :D

So, when will you release it?  I still remember playing Transcend the first time through and I want to know how you're going to top yourself this time around.
Based on prior experience, if I name a date it'll doom the release to being pushed back even further. I don't really want to say 'When it's done' either, so I'll just settle for some time before the middle of the year.

And yeah, I'm sorry about the repetition in Transcend. What happened in that tedious stretch was I had a bunch of minor ideas I wanted to use but for some reason didn't consider combining them all into one or two missions. Poor forethought on my part.

 
Downloaded it not long ago, and couldnt stop playing it until i finished it all the way through. Well done ! 10/10 ! Puts alot of other campaigns out there to shame !  :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes:

I have finally finished both Sync and Transcend.  Ransom, your writing is fantastic... thanks for several hours of suspended reality =)

That freaked the hell out of me...  :shaking:  :nervous:  :shaking:  :nervous:

I never pictured FS2 as a scary game...

 
I agreewhole-heartedly with the last few posts.  100/10.
Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky!

 
Wow, I replayed that this week after a while and this time I actually knew what to do with the LS nebulas and wow, that is a beautiful, ridiculously gripping, amazing campaign. Just one question, where did the GTF Kalpie come from? Was it made for this campaign or just never used before? Amazing job again, I gotta go replay sync now   :D

The Kelpie, I believe, was one of Snipes/Raa/Taro/Ristin/Taristin's creations that Ransom adapted for use in Transcend.  He was close to ditching it because of issues where it would be shot, then the game would crash (http://game-warden.com/forum/showthread.php?t=283), but it eventually got it in.
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!

This mod is worthy for some Voice Acting in it. :nod:
They see things, they ask "Why?" But I dream of things that never were, I say "Why not?"

 
It had better be d*** good voice acting, or the campaign would be ruined. :(

Spoiler:
One qeustion, where the 113th shadow gaurdians there because of the trandescend? Or is the trandescend onlyresponsible for getting Sunder Marcel into the 113th, by killing Omicron 4 (Joseph)?

Alright, I've found a slight problem.  I recently reinstalled the game, and I've found that my build is suddenly missing it's nebulas.  Help?

I'm assuming that you are playing FSO and using the MediaVPs. Try downloading and installing the LightSpeed's Nebulae behind the Useful Stuff link in my signature. See if that helps.

Um, I hate to sound like a noob but uh....where do I put them?  I already downloaded them, and I've tried sticking them in several places but nothing seems to make it run better.

The preferred course of action would be to extract the contents of the 7z archive to your \freespace\mediavps folder. But, if you don't want to do that or don't even have any mediavps, I suppose the \freespace\ directory will do as well.

Tried both of those, and I still got

And ruin the story for yourself, brilliant.

The game will still run without backgrounds.
