Re: Lost in the Mist, a FreeSpace 2 short side campaign
At this point I want you to finish the Fred tutorial mission.  Then make a SINGLE mission that has no mundanity.

If you follow the Fred tutorial this should pose zero problem.
I am following, but it would be better if this Fred tutorial is to be improved, with maximal uses of the MediaVPs to take advantage of the features that came with FSOpen.

I am working on a Fred tutorial mission. Then I'll make another one.

I'd strongly suggest doing the Diaspora training mission then. It is old but much newer than the one that comes with FRED. I used a lot of FS2_Open features in it.

Thank you for this, Karajoma! When can you be involved in some of my projects, include Rekt Galaxies and Shattered Stars?

Personally I would add another 1000000000000000000000000000000000000% to my assumption.

Cool! And now I've got my FS2_Open repository on github, and I'm ready to take it into my own hands, as with Knossos.

You still did not show a sample application written in C++, rather, you shied away from those comments and now, you want to take on FSO all by yourself?

I shall enlighten you:
There is an entire TEAM. Who work on FSO. Who knows what they are doing, who have an idea about the game. Who are experienced to getting the FSO as it is till date.

I really want to see you and your skills on C++, so take it as a challenge and show me something that YOU HAVE MADE ON YOUR OWN. An idea which is not some common thing that is found on stack overflow or geeks for geeks.

If you show it, you can evaluate yourself. If you evade from this reply too, all that one can consider is that you avoided this topic, and you are all show and no go.

Bryan, you seem completely blind to subtext. Let me use two recent posts as examples. (Correct me if I'm wrong, Nightmare and Colonol Dekker.)

Subtext: "It is absurdly improbable that karajorma would ever collaborate with you, due to your inability to learn from mistakes, inability to communicate with people, and general incompetence."

I'll add 1% to that tally.

Subtext: "It is, in fact, literally impossible that karajorma would ever collaborate with you, for all of the reasons that Nightmare is implying."

If you read this thread carefully, you will find many other instances of sarcasm and thinly veiled criticism.

100% correct 👍👌💯%

@Bryan... Or BS, (as I'll refer to you from now on)

You spin too many plates, people lose interest and even forget which one is which as they all blend together and lose identity.  Even the  Top Gun thread 😭🤣

Not everyone can understand modding this advanced.

 
Re: Lost in the Mist, a FreeSpace 2 short side campaign
People here are making some proper suggestions though. Firstly, casting aside large projects like Shattered Stars and starting small with Lost in the Mist was definitely a step in the right direction, even though the "campaign" still came out terrible.

One of the problems people noticed with the mod is that there was a major bug that didn't let you finish the campaign at all. The mission was supposed to end some time after the player is killed, but the player was invulnerable, so unable to be killed. Therefore the mission never ended.

This means you did not play your mod from start to finish before you released it. This is a very big mistake. When you think your mod is finished, you must play through it all before releasing. Without it you don't know if it is playable at all.

Also a thing to notice, the idea of the campaign ending some time after player's death with the player watching some mevents from the death cam view is actually kind of unique.


For now, just complete some FRED tutorial. And then play the mission that you made when following the tutorial.
