If you want to know anything about the project ( setting, modpack, etc. ), anything at all related to DEFCON FS, just ask your questions here and I'll answer them ( unless it's a secret :p ).

How are you going to animate that skybox with Nuclear explosion? Is it event triggered?

If I slow to 0 speed will I start falling?

The skybox is event trigered, and will probably be fully animated.

And yes, you do. You won't manage to slow to 0 though.

How did you implement that artifical gravity?

I won't animate the skybox. I got another idea for animating the explosion.

And I implemented improvised gravity it via Events in FRED, of course.

I guess Lua scripting might work better.

Besides the bugs that it'd produce alongside a gravity system, yes, it would work better. Now, try and find a coder that can do that.

No I won't find any coder for you :P It's your job since it's your project :P

Is there a story yet? What are the factions?
Your signatures are annoying. Remove the pictures because nobody really pays attention to them. Anyone with enough sense will block them. Thank you for your time.

There is a story. You'll play as 3 pilots for the 3 factions: USA, Russia and a third, still secret, faction. The 3rd faction will be revealed a bit later, as soon as I finish a few things for it.

Of course, the factions you'll be flying against are not limited to these three.

Is the story somewhat linked to freespace? perhaps during the unification wars?
