The plot should be enough to get fairly close. The important thing here is to test your FREDding abilities.

Try playing other missions from the campaign which were posted recently and see if you can spot flaws in their missions though, that way you'll avoid them yourself and encourage people to do the same with your mission.

Then I pick mission 14 of Campaign 3!

When I have specific questions, can I ask them here? Or better in a nother subject?

Thanks

Just create your own topic here in the FRED Discussion board, not here in the FRED Academy board, and ask away. :)
Do or do not, there is no try...

Where can I download those missions?
With the rapid increase of FS fan-made campaigns, we're giving the GTVA a harder time with more violence and genocide.

Is there any free missions available for the second campaign? If not, can I take the mission 15 of campaign 3?

 
I'd like to take Campaign 3 Mission 8A.

I’d be interested in FREDding Mission 8A from campaign 3. If it's still available, I'll take it. But I would need a few details, such as:

When it says “same situation as the loop”, which part of the loop does it mean? Could I get a brief “the plot so far” summary so that I know where things stand?
What is the Ecmus doing there?
Why are we disabling the Ecmus instead of just destroying it?

Thanks for the info in advance!
[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> WUT
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> hahahahaha
[17:00] <battuta> hahahaha
[17:00] <RangerKarl> same thing really, if you think about it

Campaign 3 branches after mission 4 depending on whether or not you decide to accept the SOC mission. Mission 8a is therefore the same as mission 8 (the one where you did accept the SOC mission) but this time it is seen from the GTVA's point of view rather than the SOC's.

If you read the plot line before your mission you should have a good idea where things stand, you might also want to play the missions that come before yours (those which have been posted at least).

Hi there. I have minimal experience with FRED but I'm willing to learn. I've gone through the walkthrough and it seemed easy enough and I can spot my own mistakes at least. I'd like to try a version of C2M8 if that's ok. I know someone else id doing it but I'd like to give it a go as well just to see how it goes. Is this ok?

EDIT: In fact I'm not sure I completely understand the premise:

Spoiler:
It mentions that the Julius retreats to the Epsilon Pegasi node and is covered by GTVA as they also retreat. Alpha 1 leaves just as they get to the node...only to end up in the same place in mission 9??? Actually I'm going to go ahead and FRED this since I have the free time and I'll simply leave out the node, assuming Julius and Alpha 1 are in some other part of Capella and have to jump to the node for mission 9.

In the grand scheme of things, how much does it really matter if it's taken or not?

In the grand scheme of things, I doubt anything matters as long as a campaign is released, but considering that I'm still working on it and it's the most recently posted unstickied thread, I'd be disappointed and demotivated if mine got replaced just because someone can take claims and invalidate my effort. It might sound selfish, but consider that it already happened to me once before. Also, there are so many more missions that aren't on the front page and hasn't been worked on for years that could be taken instead of mine. If calling for missions didn't mean anything, then I wasn't sure why I even bothered to. And if mine could be replaced anytime while I'm in the process of fixing it, I'm not sure how the goal of developing new FREDders' skills would be accomplished if nobody even judges someone who called a mission only to have his replaced by someone else without calling.

Aw give him a break. I see where you're coming from, but your last post in that thread kind of implied that you were done working on it.

Oh. Nah. I didn't mean to sound harsh, either. I already tried to make it sound nicer, too. >.<

EDIT: Oh! I see what you mean. XD It was meant to mean that I couldn't work on it 'til break, but that post was also made a long time ago. A few days after I actually was in college, I realized that there was still a lot to fix and redo, after reading the scenario again. I should update it.

Relax, I'll likely not even submit it. I'm working on it for my own purposes, I simply liked the story-line.
