The plot is finished (or at least at its 99%)
I'm recruiting members of all kinds for this project:
- Grammar checkers.
- Story Writers.
- Web designers.
- Mission designers.
- Beta Testers.
I have some designs for a new way to "create" ships (i would be more like assemble than create):

We'll need the Multi-Docking feature for the campaign.
Estimated number of missions: more than 15 (fifty)
Here is the plot:
2367, November 30th: The shivans destroyed the Capella Star and triggered a supernova which vaporized everything in the system.
2368, January 1st: A new year begins, the GTVA celebrates the 'victory' upon the NTF and the Shivans. However, both conflicts weakened the unity between the terrans and the vasudans, and the cooperation between the terran worlds. The vasudans blame the terrans for the Second Shivan Incursion and terrans envy the vasudan economic development.
2368, January-June: Many terran worlds rejected the arrival of capellan refugees. The capellans are now migrating to the vasudan systems.
2368, July-December: The GTVA gradually becomes powerless except in Beta Aquilae.
2369, January-June: The pacts and treaties that sustained the GTVA gradually dissolved. The Vasuda Imperium renames the Galactic Vasudan Fleet to Imperial Vasudan Armada; The vasudans start a massive project to improve the IVA's technology. The Galactic Terran Fleet assets defected to many factions or formed private mercenary squadrons.
2369, July-December: The different factions formed during the collapse of the GTVA began to struggle each other. Small skirmishes occur in all systems. An important migration of terrans to vasudan systems is occurring.
2370, January-June: The vasudan systems are being overwhelmed by the continuous influx of terran inmigrants. The Vasuda Imperium decided to expel the terrans which inmigrated in the last six months, and to give a three-year permission to stay to all the terrans that inmigrated in the last year. The Vasuda Imperium is offering a deal for the terran inmigrants, if they join the IVA they would have an unlimited permission to stay for him and his family (90% of the ones that accepted this offer are capellans).
2370, July-December: The terrans factions are forming alliances and fighting each other: Ribos-Ikeya vs Beta Cygni-Betelgeuse; Delta Serpentis vs Luyten Coallition; Polaris-Regulus-Sirius vs Epsilon Pegasi-Adhara-Procyon-Mirfak. Vega, Antares and Beta Aquilae are neutral. Vega is totally isolated from any major conflict. Antares sells goods and services to both sides of the Ribos-Beta Cygni War. Beta Aquilae has its own Terran-Vasudan government (The General Assembly) and Fleet Command (Security Council), sometimes they send peacekeeping forces into warzones and try to pacify the area.
2371, January-September: A relatively calm year. The Peacekeeping Expeditions sent by the Security Council is maintaining the warzones in peace (most of the time), and the General Assembly is making arrengments so the warring sides sign truces or peace treaties. Such a calm panoram convinced the Vasuda Imperium to cut the budget assigned to the IVA.

[And there is much much more...]
EDIT: note...it's a campaign for FS2_OPEN. NOt a campaign for HomeWorld. Its title is HOMEWORLDS (note the 's')...and this is its first chapter (Human Nature)
