Re: War in Heaven work-in-progress screenshots
Since there are 30+ missions in WiH, I hope most or all of them are longer than the very short ones in AoA. About 10 missions in AoA were short and without action. I hope we don't have that in WiH. The fact that it has 30+ missions explains why it will be at least a year until it is completely FREDed and released.

You need to add the 'show ship' flag to the ship's entry in ships.tbl or the appropriate -shp.tbm.

Re: War in Heaven work-in-progress screenshots
Yeah, what he said.

Ok, I guess you like very short missions. :rolleyes: There is no facepalm about it. Those short missions were just there for story purposes that were very short additions to the story. Adding cutscenes to more missions accomplishes the same thing without shortening the missions, most of the time. And yes, WiH being 30+ missions does explain why it takes time to FRED. Again, no reason to facepalm.

It is a very good campaign, but that is one small drawback, in my opinion.

Re: War in Heaven work-in-progress screenshots
Ok, I guess I was facepalmed because you think I was a little offtopic. But I'm not creating a new topic just to post what I had to say. Maybe I could have posted that in AoA though, but who cares? A little off topic isn't a big deal. This topic is about WiH or close enough.

Or maybe you think I'm fishing for answers. No, I'm just saying that I hope there won't be so many short missions. Got a problem with that?

No, adding cutscenes to missions makes them aggravating to replay when you fail because you have to sit through the something that's merely to proceed the plot a bit again and again. That's TERRIBLE if it can be avoided (and it can! those short missions!)

Short missions are not a problem.

Re: War in Heaven work-in-progress screenshots
You'll note in the Director's Cut that we now have advanced cutscene-skipping technology, though.

High Max: we're really making a push to keep all the War in Heaven missions less than two minutes long. That way, we can finish all 30 in a few sweet months!

Re: War in Heaven work-in-progress screenshots
Nice joke. :P That would be impossible anyways storywise unless we play Sync, especially knowing that we fight wars and have action packed missions in the BP series.
