As most of y'all know, I am the talking dawg for the Improved Single Player Campaign. It was an idea I had awhiles back and I got lucky some pretty smart folks 'round here said "Yes" when I asked them to help me.
But this thread is not about me or ImpSPCam.
It is about Freyr.
He is part of ImpSPCam from the beginning and those of you who've followed the progress of this mod are aware he gave us a set of AIP's for it. We included them as Bonus Materials and it seems they are a huge hit with everyone. Freyr complained loudly his Extra Spicy AIPs were 'weak, stupid, and slow'. He then told us they did not play anything at all like he did and he would like to improve them so they more closely matched his style of online play.
He has done so.
And he's made better maps for the Fed SP Campaign. These Extra Spicy AIPs - MkII are...even more elegantly lethal than the first set.
He is wondering over in the ImpSPCam Suggestions thread whether or not he should release his version of the Fed Campaign as a stand alone mod. I can tell you, having played it, the answer is an unequivocal,
"HELL YEAH! Abso-Freakin'-Lutely!"
I'd like to see him do a release. But I need all of y'all's help with this. So sound off right here with a "Yes". Nice and loud so Freyr hears y'all. Sure he's busy helping with Future Wars and working on Vanilla Ultimate. He stays very busy with a great many things and always has time to lend someone a hand. But these AIPs are something special. Especially as he's finished the Fed Campaign enough to release it.
To repeat the question: Would y'all like Freyr to release his version of the Fed Single Player Campaign as a stand alone mod?
no. I am too chicken. I want them locked away in a safe place and that sorcerer freyr burned on a pole. :naughty:
It's a definate yes from me :)
Of course I want :D
Oh, looks like there is more interest than I expected. I'll fix the remaining bugs that I am aware of, run a quick beta to make sure its not got any horrible bugs I wasn't aware of and then do a release. Is anybody interested in testing the mod?
I think its official designation has to be Armada II Upgrade Project : Vanilla Ante Penultimate =p Hmm. That name needs some work.
I found "vanilla ultimate" quite fitting :)
Yeah, but that should be for the um, Ultimate release which would be the fed kling & borg campaigns. The one before ultimate would be the Penultimate release (containing the fed & klingon campaign) and before that you get the Ante Penultimate release. (which would just be the feds) Apparently. According to the dictionary.
I will say yes. And bring on the power!
