Will it be continued even if Lucika won't return?

I'm not sure were Lucika has gone to. I'm pretty sure that RL is busy for him right now. If he does not return, or is not interested anymore, then I plan on it being continued. The main problem right now is that he and I are the two that have been working on it lately (not sure where the other 5 members have gone to) and the other problem is the length of the mod. It's a great idea and a cool storyline, but it may have to be shortened a bit. That's for Lucika to decide though.

Well, too long campaigns are always harder to do.
It's better to make shorter campaign, but with high quality missions, dialogues and something that won't be kept in development for years and released faster :yes:

Longer campaigns are... longer, no objections there. What the project really needs right now are FREDers. Lucika had plans for this to be a 60+ mission mod spread over several chapters. However, with 2 active FREDers (myself and him) and 1 bugtester (myself) progress is very slow. He also wants to use some different ships, so downloading them and putting them into the game will be interesting. However, we may decide just to use FS1 ships with edited tables. :)

You've got also a possibility to use INFA ships and TVWP ships.
I might consider re-joining this project to help you out with FREDding.

Does it cover war with Vasudans too?

I am here... I was supposed to make planets and help with the bugtest, but I can Fred also... the problem is that I'm alredy working on several other mods.

Do you have the storyline dragon? If that's up then I guess we could go on if Luc does not come back, but I bet he'll be around in a couple of days.

I don't believe that the Vasudans have been found yet. It mainly follows several different groups from Earth and the wars around the planets in our area of space (wars go as far as Pluto, which IS a planet in this campaign.) :) So I don't believe that the Vasudans are around yet. But they could easily be introduced after the first 20 missions or so.

Well, Vasudans are cool, I'd love to see them. Unification can be performed in order to fight with Vasudan threat for humanity :pimp:

Once again, it's all up to what Lucika has in mind (considering he's still around.)

But I thought there's some design doc already.

vasudan ships seem harder to mod, they have curved edges and such... maybe with already existing mods but still.. it would be making the campaign bigger.
The team is kinda split up in RL and other mods so we don't even know if we are gonna be in business for much more longer unfortunately.

That's it in a nutshell. I've PM'ed Lucika at HL, but his stats said that he hadn't been on since the 15th of July. Even if the project is going down, maybe a short demo can be scrapped from it. :)

I think he's on holidays trip. If he doesn't return in time of two months, we can say he left and other guys can take the lead of the project.

Anyway, if you need help in making mission backgrounds (with LS nebula) I can help you, because I like it and I think I'm good in that ;)

I think he said somewhere at one point of time that having the lightspeed nebula pack may be a good idea. However, I'm recalling that from memory, and it's possible that he didn't say that at all.
