Well it's taken its time, but despite impressive efforts on behalf of bugs and disgruntled .pofs, Transcend is getting released.Story:
Only a few short months after the end of the Second Shivan Incursion, amongst the chaos of Capellan refugees and ever-heightening levels of piracy, mysterious things have begun happening on the edge of GTVA space. Unexplained disappearances, strange rumours...
You are Lieutenant Sunder Marcel, recently transferred to the 103rd Shadow Guardians. Your squadron has been charged with uncovering the cause of these disturbances, to venture out into the unknown and return with an answer.
But something's strange about this case... the clues have no meaning, and reality is beginning to slip...
Everyone has a limit...
But for the love of God, run it in OpenGL. And read the installation instructions. Also Transcend requires a fairly recent build of FS Open - the 20050722 build
works fine for me. And finally, it needs the XviD codec

I realise 44 MB is pretty hefty for a non-TC campaign. If it's wanted I'll upload a segmented download as well, but I'm afraid apart from that there's not much I can do to lower the file size.
For those of you who don't have the cruiser01x.pof (which is in the SCP's amv_models.vp): Replacement Ships Table
Finally, huge thanks to the SCP for their awesome work, and to phreak and taylor for their dedicated bugfixing - Transcend would have been impossible without it.UPDATE:
Backslash has put together an update to the campaign which adds the new starfield skybox to the missions and fixes a few minor bugs. The main link has been updated, but in case anyone who already has the campaign wants to get the update, there is a patch available here
