Hello everyone! I'm coming over here after a long time with the Freespace community. I played XW, TIE, XvT, and XWA back in the day, so I love that XWAUP is here! Just got it running in VR and it looks fantastic. A question as I learn what's going on here in the community- is there much in the way of custom campaigns or missions or is most of the activity focused on the graphical upgrades? For Freespace there's more user-generated campaigns than you can shake a stick at, but for XWA I've pretty much just found ports of TIE and XW/XvT campaigns, and then a bunch of links to old websites that look to have died many years ago. Is there anything I'm missing? It's ok if not, I'm just trying to understand what's out there.

Unfortunately in terms of custom campaigns and missions there's really not too much. There is of course the Tie Fighter Total Conversion which comes with all 13 battles from the original Tie Fighter game and the expansion packs, as well as up to Battle 9 for the re-imagined campaign. (Which really is a much different experience) Other than that there are bits and pieces, but with the loss of the DSUCP a lot of the older stuff no longer works. There is some stuff in the works, but I don't know of any ready to play full blown campaigns other than the TFTC.

There are still a number of custom missions available on various sites, the ones that don‘t use any add-on craft should still be working. Take a look here:
