Title: So are you planning a sequel?
Post by: phreak on September 07, 2005, 05:11:07 PM
You know, after i pissed myself scared playing this when Transcend came out, I'd like to do it again using new material.  I'd also like to know how the story goes, but thats a secondary thought  :nervous:

IIRC, there were to be three parts to Ransom's campaigns. We have Sync and Transcend, and I'm pretty sure he's got another coming that explains a lot of things.

I'll play it. ;)

There are three parts to Sync. Transcend is sort of a side story kinda thing. As for a sequel to it... sort of, but that's a long way off. And unfortunately I can't even start the next campaign I have planned until certain features are implemented in the SCP.

im sure think you can at least start on some missions that dont need any new features :D.  We should set you up with access to the Hosted Projects Collaboration Forum.  PM any hlp admin for access.

But I'm not hosted on HLP.

I'm sure it wasn't meant to be just the HLP hosted projects that got access even though that appears to be what occured.

i think it extends to people who are hosted elsewhere.  TI people have access.  I'd post a reminder for hosted leaders to sign up, but HLP seems to be borken

At first I thought the net was playing around with me again, but it does indeed seem to be down. :doubtful:

On-topic, what exactly is the Collaborations Forum? I can partially understand that it is a forum specifically for project leaders to meet in and discuss their campaigns, but what generally is discussed in there?

The hosted collaboration forum is a place for the hosted campaigns to post requests for the SCP to give them changes that they want and need for their campaigns.

Requests posted there are given higher priority because the SCP know that they will be used (Many programmers have gotten sick of coding in a feature only to have no one use it).

i think transcend was the first released campaign to make use of the custom loading screens.  which is why it took about 18 months in order to fix it properly :blah:

Didn't one of the Lightning Marshal campaigns use them?

Ah right. :)

Well 3.6.7 will be out soon, so you should bump the thread in a week or two. :)

Your sexps are ready RA.  I finished off add-sun-bitmap and remove-sun-bitmap over the weekend.  You can now please start working on a sequel :)

Ah, excellent. Thanks again.

I won't be able to get much FREDing done until December however because I'm attending NaNoWriMo (http://www.nanowrimo.org), although I'll make a start if I get the chance. Is there a build with the finished SEXPs posted anywhere yet?

I recently talked to Ransom about this, and IIRC, he has another FS project due sometime in late April/early May that is unrelated to Transcend or Sync (or so he says :nervous: ).

Well like I said earlier in this thread, a direct sequel to Transcend, if it does happen, is a long way off. On top of that I'm currently taking a bit of a break from FREDing, so my next campaign might not show up for a while depending on when I get the time and motivation to work on it again. It shouldn't be too long though.

july

...that's not to say there won't be any campaigns related to Transcend before a direct continuation comes along, though.

As for help, I'm not sure. Like I said, it's a long way off.

Actually i was thinking about Sync, not Transcend sequel. ;)

While it's not as far away as a Transcend sequel, a continuation to Sync is still relatively distant. I have a couple more projects planned before I get around to it. I probably will need some help with it when I do, though.

Hey I just wanted to know how close you were to completing your next campaign.
(Hoping soon):)
Edit: Happy (almost) Birthday!

Post by: Ransom Arceihn on May 29, 2006, 05:40:39 AM
Thanks. The campaign's coming along slowly, I'm afraid. I'm hoping to get it done before September -- that's an absolute deadline, though, so with any luck it's not quite that far away.

I haven't been able to invest much time into working on it lately, because I just don't have much time for such a time-expensive hobby as FREDing on top of working on my manuscript and comics. With my prior campaigns I could afford to feed entire days at a time into its production, but it's not feasible for me to do that anymore and as a result it's going to take longer.

That said, keep an eye on this forum over the next few weeks.
