The title is self-explanatory. Would you like to play a short demo of NTV or you prefer to wait for the main campaign, or at least for the first part of the campaign? I want to know what the community thinks about that possibility. I'd be happy if you cast a vote and post a comment to explain the reasons behind your choice. :)

PS

Sorry for the asbence of Snuffleupagus but it wasn't the case to let it(him?) here.  :p

I'd even just like to see if the patched version of the old demo could be found and cleaned up a bit....
If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

I'm afraid an eventual new demo isn't goign to be anything like the old one. The new NTV campaign doesn't start with the beginning of the rebellion...

Okay, then I'd still advise a demo / incremental release strategy. :)

I'm also for a demo. I like NTV for being an NTF campaign and now having good FREDders, so I am interested to see what you can do with NTV. Second, everyone likes demos. Plus, it'd be benefitial for all. You show off your work and attract a crowd, while we get to play something.

A demo would be swell.

I don't know, I love to play, but enough with the demo thing, better than playing a demo is playing the first part of the campaign.
Look at BP, was there a demo version?? I relatively new so I'm not sure but playing the first part of the campaign was even better than any other thing.

I'd like a demo if it doesn't interfere with the overall progress of the project.  If you go for a segmented release, the initial offering could serve just as well.

It's on Freespacemods.net somewhere.
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!

I support a demo if you guys can manage it. Demos are good because they set the tone for the whole campaign. In fact, the reason why I reversed my judgement about FS2 from "something that will never happen" to "the best space simulator in the world" is primarily because I played the demo and was swept away by it.

...and as a matter of fact, while INFR1 wasn't technically a demo, it gave me high hopes for anything Inferno. Which is why I still sit and wait eagerly for INF SCP even though it'll take quite a while to come out. ;)

Yes, please. My FREDding on that old Demo is embarrasing. The less anyone feels compelled to play it the better. :)

Thanks for your votes, the team will consider them... :D

And Black Wolf, should you contribute to the project? You have an NTV badge... :p ;)

 
I voted yes, but I'm hoping a demo would be just the first couple of missions of the main campaign.  Don't do a demo that fills in background information and will require an additional plot and dialogue.

If we release a demo pack it'll contain at least the first 5 missions of the main NTV campaign. Most of these missions are now WIP, so don't worry... :)

What's the demo download on the NTV site?

You must be refering to the old demo. Since I wasn't part of the team back then the new NTV won't be based on that demo...we're using many of its features, but nothing more...
