RE-RELEASE: Eagle Takes Flight 2.1 (04-NOV-2013)
This is a campaign originally created by Robert Carroll for FS1 in 1998.  It is a 4 mission campaign chronicling the birth of Eagle Security Services, a small mercenary corporation.  This was the first campaign to employ custom weapon ANIs, and one of the earliest to employ TBL changes.  It has been converted to FSO and updated with new graphics, custom cbanis, and title music along with FREDDing tweaks and debugging.  This is one of the more entertaining old FS1 campaigns, which I had wanted to polish up ever since finding an Amazon drone reskin amongst the TVWP files.

Just released from GTA service due to budget cuts, you and a friend strike out on your own to earn a living. Eagle Security Services Inc. is born and it's going to take a skilled pilot to make your company a success:



Requires FSO 3.6.12, mediavps 3.6.12 and FSPort media vps.
Installation: Unzip to your FS2 folder and select the mod "EagleTakesFlight" in the launcher.

Download Link: Freespace Mods

If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

Mad Bomber's one was based on the concept of this one.

I actually liked this one. Fun to play.
[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> WUT
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> hahahahaha
[17:00] <battuta> hahahaha

D'oh.  Tried to download it, got File Not Found. :(

 
Re: RELEASE: Eagle Takes Flight 2.0
Ditto, file not found.  I'm a big fan of mini-campaigns, short stories, miniseries'.  Bring on the link!

Re: RELEASE: Eagle Takes Flight 2.0
I have sent a note to Swantz.  Not sure why it vanished from FS Mods.

Starlord, this is the original old FS1 campaign, not Mad Bomber's new one.

Re: RELEASE: Eagle Takes Flight 2.0
true, but several members here expressed acquiring the files madbomber was planning to use for his remade campaign, including the antaeus...

Speaking of which, I've sent him an email: we'll see what happens!
