:thumbup: "Outrageous!"
I see what you did there!  :lol:

My goodness, Dean.  I'm sorry, but this is unexceptionable.  I had to wait a whole five minutes before you showed up with this amazingly lovely skin! ;)  Ha!  Man, that was fast, AND this is awesome!  Just great work on the scales and the belt and other details, I'm really impressed.  Could we go with a brighter, more vibrant red for the inside of his cape?  The DCUG has a brighter color palette than the New 52.  :lol:

DM came through for me on Aquaman with flying colors (or would that be flying fish?)!  It is PRECISELY what I wanted, so that's taken care of!

:EDIT: Here's a new one: Does anyone have the voice ID list for VPMAX?  I've got some voices that aren't working, and having the list to refer to would be a big help for figuring things out.

:EDIT 2: Another one; does anyone have my old voicepacks?  Apparently my yahoo groups went the way of the dinosaurs.  I think I've got most of them, but I'm not sure, between various computer crashes and such.

:EDIT 3: And yet another; I'm reviewing some of the voicepacks assignments for the mod, cleaning things up, adding changing things around, etc.  I'm looking for suggestions and ideas in my thread in the Sounds section.

:EDIT 4: Sheesh!  Another one!  Anyway, I'm going to create a Herofile thread to get suggestions for tweaking certain characters' builds and would welcome responses.

I've redone a lot of it and tried skoping a staff more to what he has in the 52, also added the emblem just to see how it looks.

Ohh man, that looks utterly fantastic, Dean!  What great work!  He looks perfect!

Here's a new one:  What cool alternate skins exist for the mech men and flame mechs?

:EDIT: Another one: So, I remember once having a Martian Manhunter mesh/keyframes that had some cool phasing attacks.  Apparently the keys I've currently got for the MM_Ren don't seem to have those.  Does anyone know of compatible keys from which I can steal such animations?

:EDIT2: Has anyone done the New 52 CSA Sea King?  If not, no worries, but I love that they made the hook-handed Aquaman EVIL Aquaman.  :lol:

:EDIT3: Long ago when I was first working on the DCUG, the great M25 actually came up with a way to make EZScript missions saveable.  I've looked back at the old threads, and I can't find the code, but it may still exist somewhere.  Does anyone have any idea where it might be found?  Here's where we discussed it:

Another update for those of y'all that are interested:  I've finished my pass through of the JLA/JSA campaign, and reached the final finished mission.  Apparently I had a basically finished mission that I just didn't set up properly and so wasn't available, so that one will now work.  Yay!  Unfortunately, I can't remember what I had planned next!  :lol:  I've dug out my notes, but they don't say either, so I'm going to have to figure out how to end this story arc.  Does anyone remember me talking about my plans way back then?  :P

I'm contemplating slotting in some type of one or two mission story that adds Green Arrow to the League before the JSA arc.  What do y'all think about that?  I feel like he sort of deserves a spotlight mission, as he was the League's first addition.  I'm contemplating some situation where the League is captured and he sneaks in and rescues them, but I haven't figured out what menace to use.  I'm saving the Royal Flush Gang and Felix Faust for later.  Hmmm...

How about a mission where he stops the Suicide Squad from messing with the League's stuff? A kind of counter-intelligence mission. Most of the squad is on his level and that will give a variety of enemies to fight. Plus he can meet Count Vertigo for the first time in that mission :P

It would also show off all of the new Suicide Squad stuff from LP.

Thanks PG, I'll check that out! 

Good ideas, guys!  I think I'll eventually do just such a story arc (I actually have something in mind involving a plot by Vandal Savage that ties in with some earlier, unfinished work).  Upon reflection, though, I don't think this would fit in at this point in the JLA campaign.  My idea is that (with certain exceptions, like Batman), these various campaigns start from Day 1 and follow the development of characters and teams, so in the second arc, it would be too soon for Waller and the Squad to be targeting the League (though I do have plans to adapt the Ultimen storyline from JLU eventually).

I've been thinking about this, though, looking at the different pieces I have to work with.  I really like the angle they took in JLU for Arrow's recruitment, i.e., he's hesitant but joins after he sees how much good he can do.  Thus, I'd like something that's a bigger, at least somewhat 'world conquering/destroying' threat.  The trouble I've run into is the same that Bruce Timm and co. encountered in JLU; 'most DC villains just want to rob banks.'

Here's what I'm currently leaning towards:  The Key, he's a classic JLA villain from the early days of the team, he's (with some modern flavoring) powerful enough to trouble the whole team, and he provides the possibility for some lager scale plans.  I'm thinking of a 3 mission structure, with: 1) the League encounter the Key in some type of heist, foiling him, but having him escape thanks to dimensional travel, 2) Lantern coming to recruit Arrow while Ollie is out on patrol, simple mission, street level, with a supervillain fight at the end (maybe Clock King and some muscle with a well-organized heist thrown off by GL's arrival), and 3) GA visits the Watchtower, only to find the League missing and follow the Key back through a portal to his extra-dimensional base, where the villain has teleported and imprisoned the League, forcing GA to free them.

I thought he joined after he saw how much he could get into Black Canary's pants. ;)

Okay, here are my ongoing requests/questions:

-Looking for KFs with phasing attacks compatible with Ren's MM
-Has anyone done the New 52 CSA Sea King?
-Did someone make Apokaliptian dog cavalry a while back?
-Can someone make me portraits for these anti-matter villains (only exist in the DCUG):
--Professor Radiant
--Quizmaster
--Ivodroid


-And I'm still trying to find the method M25 designed to make EZScript missions save-able.

-And a new one, can anyone put the JLA logo on the FF table for me?  Something like this:
https://static0.cbrimages.com/wp-content/uploads/social_post/jla-social_1.jpg


And here is a rough story outline that for new JLA missions that I'd like to get some feedback on.  These would come between the first arc and the JSA team-up.  If you want to be surprised, don't look!

Send me the table and I'll see. I'll need to know which way is "up" on it.

Please be advised they are predicting 6+ inches of rain over the weekend, strong winds with gusts, probable tree damage, and better then even chances that the power will go out.

DG, that I do!  Ha, stay safe and dry, my friend!  Thanks for taking on the logo.  It should be a simple job, from what I'm seeing.  I've sent you the textures and some notes.

CB, thanks man!  I suppose you're the logical choice, right?  :D  Radiant already has a portrait, but it's a full-body shot, and I'd prefer head and shoulders, or at least waist up shots so that players can see them when their anim portraits show up in the missions.  I want to show off these cool characters you created!  :D

As always, you two are awesome!

Cool!  He could definitely use a skin/skope, and I'd be delighted to see you do it!

Well guys, I've got a new one for y'all.  I thought for sure I had Shaggy Man already, but apparently not.  I saw a skin by El Insensatez, but I was wondering if anyone else had tackled him.  It seems like he'd be a natural fit for Gren's Sasquatch mesh.  I made plans to include him in the JLA campaign before I realized I didn't have him.  Whoops!  :P

Awesome, Dean you're batting a thousand!

Hey guys, does anyone have an FF2 functional maps of the base scenes from FF 1 16: Destroy and 23: Dawn?  You can see what they look like on Alex's Atlas:
http://www.alexff.com/goodies_atlas.php
These would be PERFECT for something, but apparently the Map Pack didn't include the base.dats with the FF1 missions.

I feel like some of the mappers had released these separately, but I can't check FX Force anymore to see a visual representation of their releases, obviously.  By the way, does anyone happen to have the dangeroom section of FX Force saved?  I'd love to have that reference.

Alright, I managed to port over the base maps, and I've adjusted their layout files to point to area_speciff1, but all their objects are showing up with blank templates.  I realize that there's probably nobody around that knows about mapmaking anymore, but does anyone by chance know if there is an easy fix to this, rather than having to reset every template by hand?

:EDIT: Okay, I managed to do this by hand, and it wasn't too bad, so that much is sorted.  I am having a blast with these new JLA missions!

New JLA missions are underway!  I've finished 11, just need to test it.  I've mostly finished 12, and have done the map work for 13.  That leaves 14, 15, and JSA 7 and 8.  I've finally mostly figured out how to end the JSA crossover, and I think it should be fun.  I'm particularly excited about what I've got in store fore JLA 13!  After I finish the JLA campaign, I think I'll do a quick check up on Batman and then continue the Aquaman campaign that I abandoned.

So, I've got a question for interested parties.  I had originally intended to eventually combine the two distinct character plots in Mystery in Space, The Atom and the Hawks, but I think that point is down the line a ways and I don't know that I'll be able to get to it this go-around.  What would folks think about me splitting those into two distinct campaigns, so you can play them individually?  I do have one new Hawkman mission basically finished, and I'll probably do a new one for each character, if I can.
