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.

I didn't want to add anyone without knowing why Shiv didn't do it himself, now that I know, I'll do it immediately.

I'm not. It's just time dependent disability to work.

Unless I've just completely failed to notice the private forum, I don't believe he has yet.

EDIT: They're there now.
