Newbie campaigns and FRED
Well now...unfortunately, I haven't taken the time to read simply...4 pages of this thread, but let me just say that it piques my interest quite a bit. I DID read the Karajorma's very first post, so I at least know what this is about.

Incidentally, I stumbled across this thread when TopAce posted it for one of our new members, Gai Daigoji, to check out. Now I'd like to say flat out that I love this idea. I've experienced enough to know that any idea like this is worth a good shot because I've been there and done that. Sadly, I was once one of the n00bs with a potential talent for FREDding. However, as time went by and my skills were unnoticed/unprovided for, I found that they dissipated and my interest in this game did as well. I was lucky enough to come back, however, around the time that the SCP was starting. I signed on DatDB, a campaign with high hopes, as a FREDder, not fully understand what I was doing and how I could contribute. Time went by and we thought we were getting the ball rolling. However, the story never finished, and currently, the project is drifting on the line between corporeal and ethereal, almost, if not already, dead. Anyway there to see it grow would be shocked to hear such a great project die. But one of the most notable things I could remember is the fact that we had a bunch of models, anis, weapons, and a very solid story to go by, but there were barely any missions FREDded. I basically had the glory of that little blue and red icon next to my name.

Now, I find this to be a good chance for me to un-n00b myself. Sign me up!

the one thing I hate about FREDing is coming up with scenarios. I could do a few missions, but my work rate is pretty shocking.

Glad to hear you're interested. I'll be starting up a thread for the sign ups in a little bit. I just need to pick a campaign for us all to work on.

:) Nice to see the enthusiasm is still there :) I'm currently waiting for Black Wolf to send my his plotline. So don't think the inactivity on the other thread means I've forgotten :)

I'm planning to get the ball rolling on this before the weekend so that I'll have the entire weekend to deal with submissions :)

School starts tomorrow, I take my Language exams on the 3rd and the 6th, so do not count on any useful help by me this week. I am in my last year, preparing for the A-level exam(called 'Maturity' in Hungary) so my next two semesters are going to be busier than the previous ones. If this thing gets started(FRED Academy), I will only be able to render a mild amount of help. And I have still not mentioned Star Wars Conversion, the Renegade Ressurgence patch and the Journey to Epsilon Pegasi campaigns.

So, eh ... in a word ... I will see what I can do, but do not expect things what I do happen quickly.

i can't wait!  :) oh and Singh, you said that you could help out reviewing missions, well could you have a look at my mission.

and sorry if the docking operation takes forever, coz ive got 2 corvettes docking with each other, and sometimes it just doesnt go to plan. :eek2:

It's usually best not to have capital ships trying to dock with each other. Although, it'd probably work pretty well with a custom docking path and dockpoint made specifically for the mission though.

Well, yeah you're right. But i think in my mission ive got an "Iceni dock path fix" upgrade so that should help with the problems with the docking.

Even with that, the path will still be designed for a transport. What I meant was a path for a capital ship to use that would result in it not going through the other capital ship and would also line it up and position it well. This sort of thing would still have problems undocking anyway.

Yeah, i see what you mean. But ive run through the mission a dozen times and about 3 out of those 12, is where it takes a long time for the ships to dock.

btw, this mission was made for FS2 vanila. Can these new docking paths be implemented for vanila?

In a word, yes, though you have to make sure if you're downloading fixed dockpoint pofs that they're not high poly versions designed for HTL.

oh i see. Well the mission is pretty old, so i dont think i'll be updating it anyway. It was just a little something to see how it would be to have the Iceni captured.

 However for a twist, i made some story about how the shivans had built/captured/aquired infomation from Bosh, etc..... But the problem is that the Iceni doesnt look like it has been made by the shivans.
