If you activate the Sandbox before any player ships are spawned, it will automatically end. This is because the code tracks each ship,and if none exist then it assumes they have all been destroyed. The reason I added it was for a different mode that I had included in the past where a GM wasn't required.

When you start the Sandbox, don't click anything on the GM console until you see at least one player ship. The player ships must be named correctly (TSN Sabre for example) as that is how the script knows which ships is active.

Hope that helps. I think I also uploaded a video to YouTube about it. Search for TSN Sandbox GM guide and you should find it.

That was totally it. I actually was finally able to down load the latest tsn expansion from Dropbox and the sandbox script and the issue was I didn’t have the ship named properly. Thanks for the heads up! So excited.

Is there a guide for the latest version of sandbox? The pdf guide posted above has a different button configuration for the game master screen

I used to keep the written guide up-to-date, however I found that the Sandbox was changing too frequently and it took time to update the document. As a result, I switched to recording videos as these were quicker to do. You can find these on YouTube. Here is a link to an overview of the Sandbox:


There are other videos on there that detail menus more specifically, and when I have the opportunity I will upload more and replace out of date videos.

Hopefully they give you enough detail to have a go and work bits out on the fly. You're best bet is to flick through the menus and try buttons out to see what's there. I tried to make everything fairly self explanatory. In the meantime, if you have any questions, just ask and I'd be more than happy to explain.

Good luck and have fun!

Dude!

Just came across this while looking into scripting for a LAN I am hosting. Artemis has always been a big hit. This might turn the whole thing into an Artemis event.

Thank you!

Thanks for the comments! It's great that this is useful for the wider Artemis community.

There are a few videos online at the moment that go over key parts of the sandbox. I was thinking something I could do though is video myself GMing a game for the TSN and upload it, if people are interested.

I often run a mission or two as it helps me figure out where I could make improvements or think up new things I could add in, and I think recording how I use the sandbox might help others see some of the controls available or how I use those controls to create missions. Basically, it would be a demo of the sandbox that I add to the other videos.

Would this be of interest/use?

Here are a couple more video guides that I have just made and uploaded. I had made a GM demo as well, which was a video of me GMing a game for the TSN and talking through what I do. However the sound wasn't set up properly so it didn't actually record my voice. I aim to make another (now that I've fixed the sound issue) when I next have the opportunity to do so. 

For now though, these two videos give you a guide on the Ship menu and the AI menu. The ship menu is one that I just give an overview of and leave the rest to you guys to explore. On the otherhand, the AI menu is quite complex, so it is longer and has a lot of explanations in it, as well as the odd GM "top tip". Hopefully they are useful for all of you GMs out there. As I finish certain features or make changes, I will update these videos as necessary. They are a lot quicker for me to create than writing the original guide.

I have created an updated guide on how to activate the TSN Sandbox. The initial menu buttons were updated as a result of adding a new area into the sandbox. Check out the video here:

The drive share doesn't include the MISS folder, only the documentation.  Does anyone have the 7.3 mission folder?  Need it pretty urgently please!  Thanks!

Hey, the newest versions are now being uploaded to a GitHub repository. When I arrive home, I can add the latest version to the Google drive.

I'll then look at how to link it all up so that it I can keep the drive folder up to date.

Thanks, if the GitHub repo is public I can grab it there just as easily?  Can you share the URL if that's the case?  Appreciate the quick response!

Xavier it's still not there?  Any eta?  Our environment has been crashing all week during a summer camp I think due to a 6.x script on 2.7.1 and 7.2 expansion.
