Myself, really.  Just practicing making missions to get a bit better at it.

Ok, JC, Moonsword, what can you guys do in tables? :D

I can *try* to write stuff in, based on the FS entries.  My knowledge consits of reading them (primarily ships and weapons) trying to fix where modders have screwed up and left files out.  *glares in Noise's general direction*

I can edit and try to add new entries, but I won't gurantee that it'll work.  I've never done much of this before.  I can read them without a problem, for the most part, and I ahve somewhat similar experience with reading datafiles, albeit, better formatted ones.

Alright. Peter, could you please send him the basic stuff i sent you, and give him the skinny on what you're doing?
A note, Moonsword: if it's in the tables that Peter gives you (the defualt ones that I sent you Peter) leave them. They're all meant to be in there. Thanks for helping! :)

I've played around a lot with almost all of the tbl files, though I've got the most experience with the ships and weapons tables, since I've got a habit of doing a mix-n-match game with all the mods available.  Given a general idea of what I'm trying to do, and enough time to poke at the things, I can get something close to the desired results.

I'm good at writing fluff, so I can do tech descriptions, if need be.  I'm also available as a proofreader for said tech descriptions and even mission brief/debrief/dialogue.

No, I haven't.  If you've got some webspace, could you stuff them up on it and PM me a link?  Hotmail's being an ass again, apparently.

Damnit....I sent it, and it apparantly went through, as I have not recieved a "Could not send" notice.

I don't have any public webspace that I could host this on. Do you have any ideas?

I have some webspace. I am setting up a FTP account so we can send files between each other.

If you check your PM's the login should be in there.
