WIP title, forgive the pseudo pun.
I will be continuing work on this after finals in a couple weeks, planning to get something released before the next term starts (ten missions at most, but I'm still tweaking the storyline). If I post something on the boards, I'm hoping it will motivate me to actually release something. I'm using it as a sort of "FRED Academy Independent Study (not affiliated)" to try to pick up some FREDing skills.
Without further ado, here's some in-universe stuff to get you interested:
Directorate of the Parliamentary Vasudan Navy
3200 Vasudan Galactic Time
Sa Vasuda, pilot. I am Commander Akhom, and I am writing to you on behalf of the Directorate of the Parliamentary Vasudan Navy. In the war against the Terrans, you have proven yourself an above average pilot. Your squadron leader from the PVD Pinnacle has given you excellent recommendations and speaks very highly of you. The Directorate has tasked me with creating an elite raiding squadron to be stationed deep in the Antares system at a hidden base. I have been authorized to offer you a commission as part of the newly created 191st Gahiji Raiders squadron. I need a wing leader with the competence and flying skills you possess.
As part of the 191st, you will be a part of an elite fighter squadron in the PVN. We will be stationed at an undisclosed base deep in enemy territory in Antares, and our standing orders will be to disrupt supplies and communications in an effort to weaken the Terran foothold in Antares. While our elite status grants us first priority in new technologies and weapons, we will be operating for long periods of time without support from the rest of the Vasudan Navy. I need pilots that can operate under these stressful conditions.
Please respond by the end of this week, and I will push the paperwork for your transfer through.
Squadron Leader; 191st Gahiji
Obviously, it's a late T-V War era Vasudan campaign. The reason I'm starting off with a no-shields campaign is that I'm hoping to garner enough FRED skills to be able to do something useful for the TVWP. This mod will be based on the FSPort, but will most likely be revamped once the TVWP gets to this period.
EDIT: I'm not going to release the missions one by one, but in case anyone is willing to test and provide feedback, attached is one. It lacks the Command Briefing that will accompany the full campaign, and a few things that may be added. It requires a SCP build recent enough to use Fury's BP AI (attached as well). Obviously, it also requires the FSPort. Tested with Antipodes #4 (works with AI, etc.).
EDIT2: Forgot to cite Orpheus' Antares background from Light of Antares that is being used for this mission. The final release will probably have a custom background, but I needed something for my own testing and forgot to change it before uploading it.
