Check the first page and there is a list of missions. Anything from campaign 1 is good. Reply in the thread that the link takes you to. :)

And thanks for the testing. I appreciate it :)

TBP like warp effect at the jumpgate?
Warp effect generation...

I've made a jumppoint at coordinates (-554.3,702.8,-5184.2) and an event in which a freighter arrives using the jumpgate.

What are the correct origin and location data to generate a warp effect at the jumpgate?
( i'm using the warp effect SEXP...

Soon i will have a TBP mission released and maybe after that (My skills increased I could help out at FRED Academy...?)

We take people on as soon as they've finished the walkthrough. Our goal is to help you increase your skills :D

I've not played about with the warp-effect SEXP at all yet so I think I'll need a tiny bit more info. What have you placed at the coordinates you've given?

At those coordinates I have a jumpgate. 2 ships will use it: a Skylark and a wing of fighters.

I tried to enter those coordinates but the Event editor always gave me  an error... I don't  know which coordinates should I use to generate a large warp effect facing point 0 on "z" axis at the jumpgate.
Otherwise jumping out isn't like in the series...

Thats all:sigh:

One error message would have to do with the fact that you're using decimals in your coordinates.  For some reason, you can't use decimals for the warp effect SEXP.  As for the facing figure, determine what direction you want the effect to be facing, then pick a point in that direction and enter the coordinates.

Well, as my fred skills have really gone done the toilet in the recent year or so, I'd like to participate too. Campaign 5 Mission 4 looks like a good choice, if that's ok. I've already done some work on it, background and mission setup is ready as are some early events and messages.

I'll assign you to mission 5 for now. Complete that one and you can take mission 6. There hasn't been a huge demand for campaign 3 recently so if you finish in a reasonable amount of time you're bound to get it :)

Basically you pick a mission from campaign 5 that isn't assigned to anyone else and have a go at it. Once you've done as much as you can post it up and someone will play it and tell you what works and what doesn't.

By the way it's I not ai :)

Ummm. Mission 1 is already assigned. (Although admittedly I haven't seen anything from that particular person recently). Pick one that isn't assigned to someone).

Was Campaign 2 (see 1st post) finished ? I totally forgot all about it.

Nope. None of the campaigns have been finished. Campaign 1 is the only one even reasonably close.

I was under the impression that one of the people working on the second campaign completed it himself and released it independently, although I could be mistaken.  My name's still on the list for it, but you might as well take it off.  As I've said in the past, I don't think the technical aspects of FREDding would give me any problems; it's the whole creative aspect where I'm in trouble.  Unless someone spoon-fed me every last line of dialogue, all of the briefing/debriefing text, and every little event that happens during the mission, I don't even have enough creativity and storytelling ability to get through a single mission. :p

Singh released his own version of the campaign. There's no reason people can't work on this version though :)
