I'm joining up now, too! Have played FS2 a long time ago and am always eager to test and play mods that keep awesome games alive after many years (Skyrim, Homeworld 2, Freespace, Baldur's Gate 2 etc...) So i am not entirely new to the concept of "getting mods to work without a CTD", but I still experience some problems now and then. This means you might get some questions from me regarding the FS2 mods in the near future
I already had a problem with the Blue Planet Campaign, but I think I solved it by reading through this forum. Or maybe not, we'll see
I am also trying to learn how to use FRED, so maybe if I'm successfull you will hear from me....
Keep up the awesome work,
