Yeah, I just found out about this campaign. Ascraeus really seems to have done his homework on this.

Ascraeus, if you're reading this, I posted a reply on the VBB topic about your project; I also e-mailed you some thoughts that occured to me reading your son's posts. (Posting all that again here would be a little TOO redundant, so I'm not gonna do it.)

Damn, only nine years old, huh? He's gonna grow up to do great things, I have no doubt of that.

Hey Su-tehp, welcome to HLP  

Wow, JMS certainly has a good future. Sometimes it makes me sad to think of future generations and realise that they may not see the pleasure of FS...

We need a bigger universe.

The website containing Ascraeus' notes is still down.  

Any word on when it might be back up so we can see what Ascraeus came up with?

You do know that JMS is also the guy who came up with B5, right?  Kinda funny, if you take your line there out of context.

It's up again. An intro briefing, and mission briefings, outcome briefings, and event outlines for missions 2 through 4. Also a campaign map, two mission maps, and some images used to give "a feeling". Go to:
 http://faculty.concord.edu/manzione/fs3.htm

There's some movement on this -- some folks who have produced some very good campaigns have expressed an interest. Negotiations, schedules, other commitments, etc., have to be worked out. Likely be some changes.

This stuff look great, Ascraeus!

If you need any help with mission designing, FRED Zone is standing by to render any needed assistance. (You need to talk to Cetanu; that guy is a frickin' FRED genius!)

By the way did you get the FREDZone Package I e-mailed you and Tim?

Well, from here forward, if Zylon gripes at someone for a FS3 thread they now have a valid retort they can point to.

You didn't get my comment, did you?  This is an intelligent, rational thread... so it can't be a 'FS3' thread.

Looks at shrike and nods.

True, true...  Only a couple of light blows thrown.  Nothing near as bad as VBB.

I haven't been to there in so long it's not even funny.

Actually, the equivalent topic of this one over at the VBB is incredibly informative, sane and rational - at least, it was a day ago or so. Haven't been there since...

If you can get a planet working, why not a sphere

Yeah, but but, Aldo, in some missions in FS 2.9, you're actually flying INSIDE the Sphere. This means getting rid of the regular "stars and nebula and planets" background and replacing it with actual ground/planetary terrain.

1 Astronomical Unit (A.U.)= distance from our Sun to Earth's orbit, which is equivalent to 8 light-minutes (I don't remember how many millions of miles it is, but it's a lot)

A Dyson sphere with a diameter of 1 A.U. would have the same suface area as AT LEAST 100 MILLION EARTHS.  

Needless to say, that's a lot of ground to cover (pun intended).  

"...And when the ground covers the sky, when the ground IS the sky, this shall be a sign that the Destroyers are near..."
