Hello!

As part of our TSN 'Armada' Online, we are running a mission scripting competition. The mission scripting competition is a chance for the Artemis Community of scripters to show off their talents. We are looking for story creators to submit mission scripts for Artemis SSBS. Each script will be played through by an experienced team of TSN RP Community members, who will form a panel of judges.

We are still firming up details for the competition which will be released as soon as possible, but so that people can get started, here are the requirements and some suggestions too:

 

Requirements

  • Mission scripts MUST work with an unmodded version of Artemis Spaceship Bridge simulator. Any that require a modification to the game will be disqualified from entry.

  • The person/s submitting the mission script must be the author/s of the script.

  • The mission script must include any additional files required within the mission script folder e.g. sound files.

Suggestions

Though not requirements, the following suggestions may help to create a winning mission script:

  • Missions should be aimed at lasting the crew between 30 minutes to 1 hour.

  • Each person on the bridge crew should have something to do so they can engage with the mission - do not ignore roles such as Comms or Science.

 

More details will follow as we finalise them. All mission scripts would have to be submitted before the Armada Online event, giving the opportunity for the TSN Crew to play through each of them and come to a decision. During the event, we aim to hold a live broadcast with the crew, discussing each mission in turn, their merits, and then announce the winner!

So, get scripting! We look forward to seeing what the Artemis Community can come up with.

Xavier

Xavier - don't ignore Weapons either!  I've seen some scripts that I felt the Weapons officer was owed an apology upon completion!  Maybe a clever scripter can think of a reason herd all the Piranhas together and tag them?  During a Kralien invasion, you know, so things don't get boring....  Oh, and make sure you choose the right ship type.  A Mine Layer carries 0/0 Tags.  #JustSayin'

Of course! Each script will be judged on how engaged the whole crew is throughout. I like the suggestions that you have there.

If anyone is making a start on the script, please give me a shout here, or through private messages. I'll be looking at collecting them together for the competition over the next couple of weeks. Ideally, we want the scripts in a few days before the Armada Online event, which we aim to hold at the end of this month (25th - 26th April), so the TSN bridge crew can play through them and come to a decision.

After taking a look over the Mission Scripting Competition, I wanted to release the 'official' outline of the competition. You can find the write up here:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vqXJY85-vllAglC9JMGt7Q5f7HrCvQa0cevRvcwICKQ/edit?usp=sharing

Please note, we reserve the right to change some of the details in the document. If there are any changes though, we will inform everyone asap.


Currently, we have a couple of entries coming in already, and we are looking forward to seeing more. If you have a script complete already and want to send it in before the deadline date, please feel free to do so.

We are really looking forward to seeing what the community comes up with!

Hello!

We have just completed our live broadcast, talking about the mission scripts that were submitted for the Mission Scripting Competition. 

Everyone involved in running the missions thoroughly enjoyed them, and we all want to say thank you to those who submitted a script. With any competition, we had to pick a winner, and we all agreed that Nearby Confrontations 3, written by Ryan & Jamie McMullan was the number 1 script for us. 

If you missed our broadcast, or want to watch it back, you can check it out here:


I have attached the mission scripts below for everyone to try! We'd love to know your thoughts too.

Xavier

Included mission scripts: 
  • Nearby Confrontations 3 by Ryan and Jamie McMullan (Winning script)
  • Rescue Team by Jamie McMullan
  • Easter Egg Hunt by Darrin

Thanks for hosting the competition.  It's was really fun to hear the broadcast and get feedback on the mission.  Here's an updated version of Rescue Team that addresses the two minor bugs you identified.  We also added randomization to three different scenarios and a completion timer for some replayability.  Thanks again.
