EVN : Invasion : Good Writer needed.

Hi,

A while ago I started a project called EVN : Invasion. I and a friend worked on it for quite some time , I do all the coding and writing the main layout of the storyline, and my friend wrote all the actual missions and other dësc's. He wrote 12 missions , and then school began and we kinda lost contact. Now I tried contacting him recently to continue work , but he doesn't reply anymore :frown: . I have put work into this and someone is already making a ship for the plug.

I would continue writing the missions myself, but my writing skills are by far not as good as his. It would really be apperant if I wrote the rest of the missions myself.

So I'm requesting the aid of a good writer for this project. As I have lost the main story layout , and only have vague idea's of how it was supposed to continue , we would have to come up with the rest main storyline too , this would mean that if you want to help you can bring in alot of idea's yourself too,

Now abit more about the plug , here is the exellent discription my friend wrote :

-----------------
EVN : Invasion

The seeds of evil grow unstopped in the galactic northwest. Legions of pirates have colonized worlds, increasing in strength and allies as they prepare to enslave the civilized galaxy. Under a strong leader and an organized government, the pirates form an alliance, built upon fleets of unequaled power, and horrible weapons beyond the known science of man. As the first waves apear in Federation space, the galaxy's navies can pose no resistance. Only you can unite the leaders of the worlds to face a threat stronger than any the universe has known.

Good luck, Captain.

Prepare for Invasion.

-Over 35 missions in an intense, immersive, and enormous storyline
-New outfits
-A new colonized region of the galaxy
-Two new governments with scores of fleets
-New char options
-New përs ships
- New ships

-----------------

Currently I have the following work done :

-new splash screen
-10 new sytems
-12 new missions
-modfied ships(nova variants)
-5 new goverments
-new chär resource
-new përs resources
- new crön resources
-3 new fleets (more to come)
-some new planets

Also someone if working on a completely new ship for this plug-in , wich will be a great addition to the plug. This way it really adds a big new storyline.

I am pretty good at writing, however with school and a ton of other things on my back i wouldn't be able to do a whole lot. Send me the stuff you and your frend have written so far and I'll see what i can do. BenSEdwards@aol.com

"...yet gradually we recovered, venturing cautiously back into the void of space afraid of what we might find there."

I think I might be able to help. My writing skills are pretty good and I've got some good Ideas I would be able to throw around. Email me at (url="http://"mailto:virulent_mortal@yahoo.com.au")mailto:virulent_mortal@yahoo.com.au(/url)virulent_mortal@yahoo.com.au

I'm a good writer, and I would be happy to help your project. I do in fact have some conditions:

1 It needs to be BIGGER. 35 missions isn't nearly enough for me to weave a storyline to a full extent. Most of the plug-ins I make aim for the 60 mission mark, and it will have to be the same here if I'm to join the project.

2 It needs to be BETTER. If you have pirates making new scientific advances with weapons of mass power, you need new graphics matey. The ships in EV nova with new tints or whatever just wouldn't be convincing enough for the descriptions used by your friend: 'weapons of unequaled power whom no fleet could stop' is a pretty heavy implication, and I don't thinka Manticore is quite that scary. Just 3-6 ships would with new graphics would make the plug-in twice as good.

Those are my terms. If you don't know, I'm an exceptionally dedicated worker when I get into a project, and my part in the plg will probably be over in about a week. I have no graphics skills and I'm still learning the new nova engine, but I'm not new to this: I know the EVO engine inside out, I just need a little time before I'm a nova expert.
I can do missions, descriptions, plot twists, storylines, characters and hundreds of other things. The rest is up to you: weapons and so on, make them up yourself.

By the way, don't take offence in anything I've said about your plug's quality or integrity. It wasn't critisism, and anyway I like to get straight to the point.

Thanks all for your intrest. I will contact people by e-mail and will make no annoucements about wheter you've been chosen here.(so If you're lucky , you'll get a mail) once things get rolling with a person I'll annouce it.

Also :
- 35 missions is the intial aim , when we find out during development that it is not sufficent , we might add more. I focus on quality not quantity.

-Right now , 1 new ship is being made and will be added to the game. More might be created , but that depends on several thinghs. I will annouce details when they become avaible. Also the pirates don't stop at using pirate technology.......

Entarus,

Uhh, I'm not particularly busy and I've always wanted to help develop a plug except that I'm absolutely clueless as to where to start. I think I'm a decent writer, and I can think of some creative plot twists. Just don't ask me to help you with graphics or programming just yet. I'm not particularly good at that stuff.

Aye, quality over quantity is good, but you can have both. 60 missions that are all good with a couple of graphics and a decent plot will be rated with the best out there, but with 30 missions it's more of an expander. It may take you so long to make them, but remember that people can complete 30 missions in a couple of hours, so you need to space things out a bit.

Anyway, I'll be looking forward to working with you on the project, catch you later.

I'd really like to be apart of a plug-in project, but since I can do any of the programing or graphics it leaves me with writing. I'd love to write storylines, missions, planets, and outfits/ships. It you are interested email me at JDHMTBGUY87@hotmail.com
and by the way I am very dedicated to my work, and I won't quit.
