Good rule of thumb. In this case I'd check out the fine print at the start of the CVS Builds thread. :)

Done. Take care not to have too many ships when working on that mission. It's quite Endorian.

Just one question. What kind of destroyer is the GTID Acumen

Your choice. You're the first person to make a mission featuring it so choose whichever Terran destroyer fits your mission better. Since it's a beam fight though I'd suggest an Orion over a Hecate.

Hi All.

Been out of the FS saddle since 2001 but I fooled around with FRED and was one of the many who started a campaign never to finish it, so I think this FA idea is a very worthy cause.

I've tried to get up to speed with developments since vanilla FS2 was released but there a hell of a lot of info on this site so I guess I'll just have to watch and learn. Quite daunting for an old fart like me, hehe.

I'm guessing there isn't a time limit on this considering the age of this thread but having recently become a father my time is somewhat limited, so if you can bear with me I'll do what I can when I can ;)

I'd like to go for

C3 Mission 6A.

If thats ok with you guys

;)

I will have questions....

Sounds good to me.

Oh and congratulations. Train your child in the ways of Freespace from an early age :)

Congrats.

Is your kid called Fred?  Because that could get quite confuzzling.  Especially if your second name is 'Academy'.

Don't worry, he'll be holding a joystick before he holds a rattle ;)

I have some questions regarding the mission spec before I get stuck in, but I'll address those in a new thread.

No Aldo, his name is not FRED alas. His middle name is Gaius though and it has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with BSG.

Well, I'm a sincere newb at Freding, and wanted to try my hand at something here. It sounds really great, the only problem is... I don't see any missions. There is a list of campgiens... But there is no plot, no missions. It says that they are under spoiler tags, and I swear I've highlighted the whole page and found zip. I can't find any links to these campgiens and I don't understand what you mean when you "Pick a campgien and mission below" Because I can't find any missions! I'm sorry if this is insane newbness, but I swear I cannot find it. Thank for any help.

The new spoiler tabs work by hovering the mouse pointer over them. If highlighting doesn't work for you just quote one of the messages on the first page and you'll be able to read everything.

Which is funny, because spoiler tags don't seem to work at all for me. Even quoting them does no good.

Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

Same problem, quoting doesn't work for me either, it's still all blank :x

Ah. Sent the details for campaigns 2 and 3 (The only active ones with unassigned missions) by PM for now.

I'm assuming that you weren't planning on FREDding for the B5 mod so I didn't send you the plotline from campaign 5

I'll take Campaign 3 Mission 6: Wolves in the Fields. Nice standard convoy mission. :nod:

EDIT: What's a good version of FRED? right now I'm using the 3.6.9 RC5 (unless multi_test came with FRED, which I don't think it did.)

That should be prefectly fine. Even if there is a newer build next to nothing will have changed in it since most of the fixes the last couple of weeks were for FS2_Open instead anyway.
