Check the spelling mistakes! doesm, suply, whit etc.
I suggest you add the briefing the $f front of the GTD, to teach the future newbie to colored fonts in the briefing. :)

I think the one included with FRED is of much better use for newbies. What's really needed is a comprehensive documentation on creating an advanced, complex mission like those found in the BWO demo (they're the benchmark I use for the best missions anyone can make).

Don't mind me but... how can FRED be advanced? The only thing that really needs to be advanced is your creative skills. FRED is ub3r easy :p

FREDing is easy if you sit down and you say: 'let's create a bomber mission!' You place down a destroyer, and perhaps a cruiser if you have a mood to do, some enemy fighters, and friendly bombers and fighters. The mission is ready. If you are to follow a storyline, or created a mission which is more complicated, for example you want to make scramble mission when you have to defend two cruisers, who have fallen under attack by a corvette, and you want that corvette to destroy both cruisers with ease, but the two cruisers are stronger than the corvette, and without losses. You cannot change the corvette to a destroyer, because Mr. Projectleader orders you to follow his description of the mission. What's up then?

I said FREDding itsself is easy. The creation of a complex mission layout is hard indeed. But SEXPing, objectives, and everything else is simple to understand. It's the layout of a mission that is hard to create. Once you have the layout, creating a mission is very easy.

*Note: Creating a layout is NOT part of FREDding. Hence FREDding is easy.

Yeah, but it is really not good if you have all your two hands and ten fingers tied.

I mean 'FREDing' the same as 'creating a mission', so from the very beginning(writing what the mission is about) till the completion of the full mission, with eventaully voices(if you have the possibility doing that).

Hmmm. I like this. :) I don't think it's as detailed as the walkthrough that comes with FRED but I think it's a good idea to tell newbies to do this one straight afterwards :) I'll put a link up in the FAQ today.

What surprises? I can imagine as a player is flying a mission to escort an Orion from x to y and suddenly a face of a claw is launched from the side of the Orion, watching at the player and continously firing the Morning Star at the player. :D

We'll want to see the update!
