As soon as I got online I realised what it was that I'd forgotten to do. Gonna go edit the first post now :)

Getting close actually. Most of the missions in campaign 1 are finished or nearly finished apart from Nuclear1's choice (which he only just started). I could probably polish the rest up to completion in a single night if I wanted to but I'd rather let everyone finish their own missions off.

(Fergus' ego shrinks beyond measurment)

Apart from my little 'problem' mine is reasonalby close to done, though I'm still wondering about the large 4 wing attack, too much, or just enough?

Well it would be a long night if that makes you feel any better :D

IIRC the attack in the mission was fierce but beatable. Which is about right. I'll have to try the mission again to check though.

Just write the mission you're currently assigned with retail.

hey, karajorma, can I switch to missions 9-9a? They're more my thing.

I want to start work on another FA retail mission, so can I nab the one you were origionally doing?

EDIT: I've just realised he is campaign 2, so I'll nab mission 5 from the campaign 1 list.

Updated for Fergus and Cobra

BTW for those who aren't paying attention there is a fifth campaign being added that will run on The Babylon Project. If you're planning FRED in the B5 universe you might want to take a look at their forum for more info. :D

Those of you who visit TBP's forums may have noticed that since Release 3 has been out they've been getting a lot of traffic from new FREDders. To that end I've added a 5th TBP campaign to the list.

Set after the Narn - Centauri war the storyline follows the Narn heavy cruiser G'Tok after the events seen in S2 "The Fall of Night" as it desperately tries to rally some of the reminants of the Narn Fleet together to retake their homeworld.

I have updates for my missions: they are both 75% finished. now they just need testing and fine tuning.

Kara, I was just reviewing "The Fall of Night" and "The Long Twilight Struggle" and I've got some details to include.  It wasn't Zeta WING that was launched, it was Zeta SQUAD, which appeared to consist of about 12 fighters.  Now, about half of those ended up escorting the G'Tok, while the other half went to engage the Centauri cruiser.  Keffer actually orders Zetas 1 thorugh 5 to "break and attack", so I assume he meant to attack the Centauri cruiser.  Now, even with PhReAk's latest updates, we can't support 12 fighters in a wing.  Since Zeta won't default to being in the loadout interface, I suggest that in the mission, Zeta wing be made up of 6 fighters... well, 5 if you account for Keffer's destruction.  I'd assume he'd be Zeta 1, so if possible, just make him destroyed some time before the game begins.

Also, in "The Long Twilight Struggle", the base the Narn were attacking was in the Gorash system, on Gorash 7.  Just some details for the briefing regarding the Narn supply ships for Mission 1.

It's a real pity they can't be broken up into flights...Zeta 1-1, etc.

Wait. That could be done, though it would be funny-looking.

Not particuarly, I suppose it would make sense for TBP, but as I have no idea how many fighters/bombers would logically be deployed for a certain Op, I did use it once for a "backgroud" battle, "TFighter 1-" so I didn't need to use up names I wanted to use.  It worked rather well.

Fair enough. Thanks for checking things up for me :) Although I did actually mention a method to get 12 fighters in a single wing on another thread recently. It's a little hackish but it works :)

Sign me up for C5 M7 please.  I'm a total noob and would like to get something straightforward like this working before tackling anything challenging.

This is a way cool idea btw.
