Hello GW Universe!

Tantalus here. Im going to make this short and sweet.

We really need More FREDers. Currently, we only have one active FREDer (That's me) who's in his first weeks of College which is slowing Mission development to a snails pace  .

Needless to say, A lot of work has gone into this mod and without a larger FREDing team, we will be in for some tough times until my schedule opens back up (which will be in the winter. )


What we need to make headway is two to three more FREDers at minimum. Experience with FRED would be preferred, but if you've got the time & patience to deal with people like  Battuta, Snail, Nighteyes and I pouring over your missions and spraying you with things to fix, we will make a Tier 1 FRED-er out of you yet.


How To Apply

If you are interested,
1. Send me, Nighteyes or Shiv a PM on HLP or GameWarden expressing your interest in joining. Or, hunt down one of the Omegas on IRC. (Check the ED and HLP channel.)
                     (Being an utter nerd, and that i walk around with my laptop a lot, ill get back to you pretty fast  Big grin)
 
2. Make a test mission in FRED. Try to show us what you know how to do. We don't care where its from or what its about, just give us a skill gauge. it doesn't need to use every SEXP under the sun. I've seen Great missions with Simple FREDing. And Bad missions with overcomplicated FREDing  (If your from another big mod and already have a mission done for them, just ask the mod leader to vouch for your skill. )

3. Email it to one of us. (if you've been vouched for, no worries about this step). We'll give it a playthrough. I might crack it open and see what SEXPs you used. Remember to tell us about your experience as a FREDer. (If you say your the best thing since sliced bread, we'll expect that from you. If you say your not too experienced, then you'll be evaluated with that in mind.)

So yes. Please apply. We wanna get Act 1 finished and this is our obstacle. The more FREDers the merrier, and on Fridays Shiv gets us free Pizza. Do it for the pizza.

Polls / FreeSpace 1 or FreeSpace 2?
« on: August 19, 2009, 01:18:43 PM »
Well, im purely an FS2 Faithfull... Coming over from The Descent series to Freespace, FS2 seemed to loon alot more attractive with its explosions, flak batteries, and beam cannons.. but aside from that, there are more subtle reasons i prefer FS2

I dont know if anyone else realised this, but, throught the FS1 Storyline, all the new weapons seemed to be getting developed /right/ then and there as you were playing (based on command briefings) Even the Medusa and the Herc were apparently developed and released to the player. Wheras, in FS2, Everything was developed allready (aside from... one, maybe two weapons) and were /authorised/ to the player by command as the game progressed. That made a big difference to me, made the game more believable.

Another reason, I felt like i could actually beat the shivans in Freespace two. That we actually stood a chance the entire game.. Untill all those sathanas' showed up and we lost all hope. Then the impending doom feeling set in. I think that sudden turn for Hopelessness is what grabbed me the most during FS2. In the end, we found a way to kill the Lucifer. We lived through it. But the Sathanas attacks? We had to /run/. And it left me thinking... 'What /can/ we do the next time they show up?'
