Does that mean you get to bring over pie as a house warming gift?  ;)

I'll be building stuff in here over the next few days, as well as attempting to move folks
over from our existing board.

Whoa, that's a big gun




That's what she said
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!

Well it was either that or Campbell's other line... "Oh so now you're using a cheat code... ya know what, you're pathetic, just play the game!" and that was a bit long for the forum to stick on one line.

*shrug*

So out of curiosity, what was it that made you decide to get hosted at HLP?

I'm not sure that you could say we're hosted so much, as that implies we're using
using HLP's other file storage and other features, of which we are not. We still maintain
our site, our own SVN, and FTP space. We're technically not in the hosting menu at the top of the page.

Primarily exposure. HLP is the hub for FS2 modding and while I believe that being separate
was the right decision at that time, times have changed and it's logistically smarter to have something
here. Some folks haven't heard of us, or considered us dead since they don't hear a great deal, getting
involved with things here or there is a bit more difficult across 2 forums.

Will you also try to bring over the multiplayer mode with the two bases?
That would be so great!

And as a Tachyon fan I really look forward to this mod  :yes:

Base Wars.

It is something we want to do, but it will have to come later on.
FS2 I don't think was ever designed to do something like that, outside of perhaps
Squadwar... and we need a ton of code in order to make all the parts work like credit tracking,
pilot upgrading, base reactions and triggers.

There's quite a few upgrades we want to make to the BaseWars experience as well.

Right now, I'd rather see the netcode whipped into shape so stuff like arena, capture the flag,
point defense, etc.. can be done smoothly. Base Wars would likely rely heavily on the netcode improvements,
since there's a great deal to track. We also have to implement the sector to sector transitions, which
are not native to FS2.

Sounds like a lot, which it is... so we're working on the fighters and caps first. Bases will come after that.
but we do have a fair idea of how to hack some solutions together to get the results we want.

Thanks, working with micro art is not my forte at all.

Wanted something with a tachyon gate in it, and at least the letters.
Tried copying some of the attributes from other badges like the font height,
since they seem to work fine.

I find the Inferno Alliance one very nice, as it accurately shows the planets and
everything in such a small space. It's impressive to me anyway.

Really? Thanks, I think it was Woomeister himself who did it.

Your badge is good as it is, really. :)

Re: Welcome & Questions Thread
Question: how are you going to handle some of the exotic weapons like the corona device or the tractor beam?

Excellent work on figuring out the sappers on the other hand... :nod:

Also, can you use see-through/transparent textures for the ripstar crystals?
