Yep.  I think a lot of user-made ships available on FSMods haven't  been put to good use, so this would be it.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
I wholeheartedly agree. The Reyena is a very good design and I'd really like to see it in action. I wanted to use it in a campaign... :)

Well, I guess you missed the other campaign that uses it...

I think he's talking about FS:End War.
BUT...let's not derail this further.

As a word of warning, the Media VPs are REQUIRED in order to play.  You'll get some nasty background quirks and some ships might not even be visible without them.

Wow. Those trailers are awesome not to mention the voice-acting. I'm going to keep an eye out for this campaign.  :D

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
Those videos aren't trailers, more than they are just promo vids or demonstrations.

Anyway, I've posted the real trailer.  Here's the link (also available in the first post):

Sorry, my mistake. Just curious, what was the music you used in the real trailer?

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
I use tracks from Newgrounds Audio (don't kill me, I'm very selective).

Sometimes I compose myself, since I'm a musician also, but I prefer not to, since compositions take more time than FREDing 5 missions.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
Very nice promotional material! I can tell your serious about this project. Are you planning on recruiting help from here(FREDers modellers heck even more voice actors)?

Also I hope you don't mind I nitpick a bit about mission 2. I know its probably far from finished. From what I see in the video a couple of details bothered me.

1. The music was monotone. It would hardly psych anyone up more than retail music. Look at Blue Planet for some hints on how to get that right. The music there followed the flow of the mission and changed dynamically.

2. Just a thought: if the TSD Eurysilas is so special.(it leads the charge alone in front of 3 other Orions) then why not make it a custom ship that fits the Orion theme. Like an Orion Mk.2(Trashmans?) or the Sanctuary model.

3. The Orion looks like it has weaker AA than the ones in the original campaign. No anti-fighter beams but even with them Orions are very vulnerable to bombers. Blob turrets are useless in retail state. I suggest making them spam shot like in Procyon Insurgency or replacing them with faster, more accurate weapons.

4. I bet that if I were to play this mission without seeing the video first, with my luck I would get bashed by the warping out destroyer. Warn the player that a large ship is powering up its jump drives so that he can clear its front before it jumps. Thats a very frustrating way to fail a mission.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
Looks very good. Me likes  :yes:


Regarding the TSD Eurysilas - there are several Orion models out there IIRC.
Both variations of the "stock" one and modified versions.

IIRC there are two or three different varations of the Bob's one, then there's 3 variations of mine (FS1 armament, Fs2 armament, improved armament)

Then there's Hamanos Orion Phase 2, my Orion Mk2, and I believe I've seen a few more for download.
He certanly has a lot to choose from with the Orion being so popular and all :)
Nobody dies as a virgin - the life ****s us all!

You're a wrongularity from which no right can escape!

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
Does TrashMan's OrionMkII have a nameplate texture?  If so, grand.  If not, the ship stays the same UNLESS I can find an Orion-like ship that stays true to the original design for the most part.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
Why not consider the up-gunned Trashman versions? Or Hamano's Phase 2?

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
I can only seem to find TrashMan's OrionMkII.  Could you link me to the "up-gunned" Orion I've heard mentioned here?

Trashman, I believe he's interested in the improved armament version.

Improved armament is not an issue here, I'm experienced enough to table-rig my own version of the Orion with the Eurysilas nameplate on its side by default.

You can't add additional turrets by table editing.

Oh.  More turrets.   :wtf:

Well, in that case, I'll take it.  As long as it has the nameplate texture as similar to the Orion#Bastion ship.
