It's good to see fixed red alert issues. Finally, fredding red alert missions is again reliable.

Thanks for your help!:)

Ok, another problem:

I've got the GTC Oceania which is attacked by Shivans and need to be repaired. After you destroyed some wings and also a Cain-class cruiser, the GTT Oriani jumps out of the subspace. Then it docks with the GTC Oceania. And here's my problem: I want to make the SD Lucifer arrive, when the GTT Oriani and the GTC Oceania docked with each other.

I did it like this:

With the Boolean operators of the Lucifer I made this:

has docked delay:

GTC Oceania
GTT Oriani
3
2

I tested it, but it didn't work. I thank you for your help.:)

It depends, Shiv. ;)

The first value indicates the number of times the ships have to have docked to consider the event true.

The second value is the delay in seconds after which the event will become true.

So, if you want the Lucifer to arrive has soon as the Oriani has docked, you need to do this:

has-docked-delay
---GTC Oceania
---GTT Oriani
1
0 (a higher value would be better, IMHO)

Ok, it works now.:)Thanks.

Another question:

I've got a Science cruiser, the GTSC Darwin. You should help by the evacuation of the Darwin. After a Shivan wing has been destroyed, the PVT Scarab jumps out of the Subspace. It should evacuate the remaining crew members. The Scarab docks on the GTSC Darwin. Until here, I've got no problems.

But, the transport should whait a bit, until it undocks. How do I make that?

All you need is a new event, whose structure is this (event names excluded):

when
---has-docked-delay
-----PVT Scarab
-----GTSC Darwin
-----1
-----10 (use the delay you need)

---add-goal
----PVT Scarab
-----ai-undock
-------50/89 (this is for the priority. Any value is fine as long as there aren't other orders)

Also, if you want the Scarab to depart after the undocking procedure, all you need to do is the following:

(on the PVT Scarab's departure cue, there's no need to create a new event)

has-undocked-delay
---PVT Scarab
---GTSC Darwin
---1
---3 (delay in seconds after which the Scarab will depart)

Hey Thulius, I recommend you do the Advanced Walkthrough (in the FRED help files, for download from the K-FAQ). All this kinda stuff is neatly explained in there :P

Well, noone is closing it.

But honestly, if you want FRED help, you can always use the HLP IRC channel (#hard-light, on irc.esper.net, here's a mibbit link), or the FRED forum on HLP, or the fswiki.

There are usually at least a few people around who know FRED who are willing to answer questions.

But if you ask here, a reply will only take slightly longer :nervous: There are a few FREDders around here as well.
