Ungh. I'm not sure how this is going to go down, so I'm just going to shut my eyes and hope for the best.



The story started when I felt that I needed a bit of a break from standard FS2-work (which is FREDding) and decided to indulge in that other FS2-activity, the likes of which I have not seen in months - actually playing the damn game.

(Proper playing, not playtesting, which doesn't really count.)

I think "Hey, playing Derelict again might be nice, no? Bring back some memories of the days when FS2 was just a game and not a sucking vortex of non-time, consuming your soul from the inside-out, eh?" And I agree, surprise surprise.

However, Derelict uses the old backgrounds.

I don't like the old backgrounds.

I like the new ones, the ones Lightspeed made, because they're pretty and stuff. The old ones, however... ick.

So I got a big huge stars.tbl together and went through all the missions, putting nice backgrounds in them. One for each of the systems: Tau Sigma, Altair, Phi Eridani, Tania Australis... so on, so forth.

The problem was that while I was there, I couldn't help correcting some of the many minor errors that plague the grand-daddy of all campaigns. A directive here, a lack of AWOL debriefing there... was that so much to ask?

Not as such, though it did utterly negate my original intention of having some down-time. But I did play it through, and it has been fixed, although I doubt that I got them all... but regardless, it is here.

'Cause, like, I thought I should share the wealth with all of you.

So: Derelict

Also required: FSO 3.6.5 with accompanying Media VPs; Lightspeed's Backgrounds Sets 1-6

(I hope the original Derelict crew won't return from the grave to rend me into chunks after I finished what they, uh, had already finished before... um...)

Some users have reported problems completing the "Said the Spider to the Fly"  mission. This file should fix the problem. Download and add it to Derelict\Data\Missions (assuming you've installed to \Derelict of course) - Karajorma

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!

get the voice acting scripts, the one thing they were going to do and should have done but never did, you can get it half done just by makeing a list of all the lines of all the missions the file name they should use and who is saying them.

Don't.  At least, not yet.  The next thing on my list of stuff to do is to finish the voice acting manager for FRED.  One that's done, you can click a button and export an entire campaign script. ;7

Kind of hope they do actually. :p I've said before that if I thought it would bring them back I'd do something like this to Deralict myself :D

Once we'd pointed them at the SCP they'd have a hard time leaving again :D

Great, BR. It's been years since I played that, a good point to do it again.

Just one question on those nebulas - all six packages include stars.tbl; are the tables required to be somehow joined? Otherwise, they'd be overwritten by the subsequent package.

Don't use the LS tables. The VP already contains the appropriate stars.tbl which allows for all the different nebulae. So 's already sorted.
