Yes, I have  free time.  Not tons, but enough to work on a few missions.  :)

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!

Re: Join Neo Terra Victorious!
You posted a mission about 30 days ago. What did you do in the past month? What happened to your FREDding skills?

What exactly do you mean? Do you mean that it took me WAY to long to FRED this mission (which I made in under 24 hours. The rest of the time I spent working on other small mission for myself,) or do you mean my FREDing skills are worse than they used to be?

Re: Join Neo Terra Victorious!
I suppose he wants to know if or how your FRED skills have changed? I suppose he wouldn't be delighted to start testing a mission which shows that your skills are still at the same level they were before.

Do you mean that it took me WAY to long to FRED this mission (which I made in under 24 hours.
You just doomed yourself with this line.

What's so wrong with that? NGTM1R's capable of FREDding an entire 5 mission campaign in a weekend.

Re: Join Neo Terra Victorious!
I take it he has more experience with FREDding. In the same manner an experienced coder can pull together a snake game in 15 minutes whereas a beginner might need even a week.

You mean you haven't been able to fred something in less than 24 hours without any bugs???

Any good FREDer can fred a mission that small in under 24 hours. It's easy if you have the time, just as any good writer can write a book in record time when they're "in the groove." To assume that I can't fred a mission in under 24 hours is an insult to my capabilities.

Re: Join Neo Terra Victorious!
If its as simple enough to be done in less than 24 hours without any bugs, its hardly a good demonstration of skill. :doubt:

Okay dragonsniper . . . I've tried out your mission and here are my opinions

Pretty good FREDding, just needs some time to quash those really annoying bugs.
- You should name your cruisers instead of just calling them, GVC Aten or GTC Aeolus.
-There are a few grammatical/punctuation errors there.

-An Aten cruiser mounting a BGreen?  :wtf: Uh, the Aten is quite weak as a cruiser so don't overpower it  :)
-You should divide your enemy bombers and fighters into different wings.
-Make the mission hard. I sat by the Aeolus without doing anything and no one died until the Vasudans turned rogue, in which that should have ended the mission.
-And finally . . . there's no way of winning the mission. When the Aeolus tells you to depart, your warp drive is locked so there's no way of escaping.

Just trying to help.  :)

I fell to that one too... you got to get near the jumpnode to depart... I guess, a directive will prove efficient in that matter.

Re: Join Neo Terra Victorious!
I guess so... I had a message from the Aeolus telling you to jump out at the node, but it was when the Vasudan's turned on you so it was probably tough to pick it out. I'll work on another, and make it harder. Thanks for the advice. :)

Re: Join Neo Terra Victorious!

Exactly. Dragonsniper, ask us to test a mission of yours only when you can give for sure that it has a few/no bugs and is, overall, good enough to attract our attention. IMO, key parts are:

- Proper grammar
Only if you're a native English speaker, otherwise forget about this part... I'm not a good English speaker myself. I wouldn't like native English speakers working as FREDders making a lot of errors, though.

- Proper naming convention
Ships should have their unique and acceptable names. I don't like adding prefixes to ship names so you should adapt your FREDding to that condition. For example, there will be no ships named "NTF Iceni" or "NTD Vindicator". Prefixes are for ship classes, only.

- Background creation abilities
If possible, create an exclusive background and use the starfield model life as skybox. Copying and pasting an already existing background doesn't give a good impression.

- Correct wing management
There should be various wings of various spacecraft in a mission, not 3-5 wings respawning 4+ times.

- Correct Alt-names management
You should also be able to handle Alt-names, which will be used in NTV. Player wings will also use nameplates so you'll have to use advanced SEXPs to change alt names according to the spacecraft class selected for the mission.

- Proper messages
Since NTV will feature characters you should be able to create discussions of various length showing your ability at adding messages. No missions with a limited and inconclusive number of messages.

- Briefings and debriefings
They should work properly and display all needed info. Very short briefing stages and only a few debriefing ones(success, failure and AWOL) aren't a good example. I usually write even 10 stages so I don't know why any potential NTV member wouldn't do that as well.

OPTIONAL:

- Cutscene designing abilities
Being able to design in-mission/separate cutscenes via FRED really boosts anyone's chance to join NTV(and, in the future, Inferno :D).

Re: Join Neo Terra Victorious!
I finished a demo of a campaign I'll (hopefully) be finishing. All missions should work (except for mission 5 possibly.) I made a mistake in the campaign editor, and will fix the problem if/when I release the full campaign. Here's the link http://www.freespacemods.net/download.php?view.469. I hope it's okay. It would be nice to have an already plotted out storyline to FRED. Thanks for the consideration.
