Re: The WoD questions and discussion thread
So just a quick question here, what is the current state of WoD2, I mean I get if you're currently not working on it due to time constraints or things have slowed due to work overload etc. but while the forum game has been running quite nicely, I don't think we've had any news over the current state of things as far as the mod goes.
Work is definitely being done, it's just a lot of stuff that is hard to show off.

As I understood it, Spoon is completely re-working WoD1 so WoD2 is on hold for the moment.
The rework is such that after the first release, there will be new (smaller) episodic releases (kinda in the way that BP is releasing new acts) instead of big 20-30 mission campaigns. Things will be quite different.
Urutorahappī!!

This has my seal of approval.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Re: The WoD questions and discussion thread
If that's the case I don't mind really.

Re: The WoD questions and discussion thread
Will the campaign file be updated (as opposed to a new, seperate campaign file for each episode), so that we don't have to go to the campaign-room every 10 or so missions?

Re: The WoD questions and discussion thread
I am not sure your pilot file will support well having missions appended to the campaign you were playing...

And if you have to reset your pilot for whatever reason (pilot corruption, new install, etc), you'd have to go through the whole campaign again to play the few last ones, or play in the tech room and loose the campaign-specific stuff (loadout limitations, campaign-persistant variables...). Bad solution imho.

What MatthTheGeek said.

And selecting a new campaign from the campaign room isn't that big of a effort is it?  :p

Re: The WoD questions and discussion thread
Now maybe you could make it a feature request that finishing a campaign automatically selects another campaign...

Will the new Wings of Dawn feature things such as transports and installations for the Hierarchy?

This caught my eye.

Spoon, if you're going to keep Freespace ships around, you could perhaps "appropriate" some Shivan ships as Hertak transports and freighters...
