Description:

Fly the TIE Fighter Total Conversion - Reimagined campaign

Medals will be awarded in the following categories:

  • high scores
  • fastest times
  • writing
  • graphics

The current version of TFTC is v1.2, which includes some training missions and then the first 8 battles in TIE Fighter. This makes a total of nine battles.

You can follow installation instructions from https://wiki.emperorshammer.org/TFTC_Quick_Installation

High Scores

For each battle, 10 points are awarded for the highest score, 9 points for 2nd, 8 for 3rd... down to a minimum of 2 for 9th and below. The combined total for all nine battles decides the medals.

Fastest Times

XWA records the completion time per mission in the pilot file, allowing for a speed comp. For each battle, 10 points are awarded for the lowest time, 9 points for 2nd, 8 for 3rd... down to a minimum of 2 for 9th and below. The combined total for all nine battles decides the medals.

Writing

I am looking for written content of various kinds:

  • reviews of each battle
  • overall impressions of TFTC
  • reviews/discussion of the ships - primarily the ones that are not in vanilla XWA. Bonus points for technical content that could go in the wiki and be useful for future mission creators for the platform.
  • ideas for custom missions, particularly ones that make good use of the new content or enhancements

Scoring will be arbitrary at the discretion of the TAC.

Graphics

Any graphical content related to TFTC - particularly things like

  • screenshots that showcase the enhanced graphics
  • comparisons between XWA and TFTC or TIE and TFTC
  • screenshots or compositions that focus on the new ships

Scoring will be arbitrary at the discretion of the TAC.

Final Notes

All pilot file, writing and graphics submissions should be emailed to the TAC - pickledyoda at gmail.com. Please include your name and 'TFTC' in the subject line.

I highly encourage submitting your pilot file regularly. I am looking for a wide variety of examples to inspect for the purposes of writing BSF code.

There will be a bonus for the first person to submit a complete file.
