Now finish that installer so that a larger pop can enjoy this release !
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Re: FSPort 3.4 Discussion!
Which models were updated?
Normal people believe that if it isn't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it isn't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
The difference between Mechanical Engineers and Civil Engineers is:
Mechanical Engineers build weapons.  Civil Engineers build targets
An optimist sees the glass half full; the pessimist sees it half empty. An engineer sees that the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Re: FSPort 3.4 Discussion!
Woo :yes:

For the sake of saving bandwidth, are there any files that haven't changed since the last release, or should we download the whole slate of Core and MediaVP files fresh?

Re: FSPort 3.4 Discussion!
Only Odeon and Warble have definitely not changed. (Yeah, Odeon. I guess the cutscenes with the new audio are not ready yet.) I think some of the Tango_hi files are also the same as before.

And I found the first new problem already: Brief_2_5_c.wav has an grating noise replacing most of the word "co-ordinates." The file in SVN sounds fine and has never been changed. I suppose the version of this file used to build the VP got damaged somehow.

Awesome! I'm glad someone finally fixed the Ramses/Taranis battle, I always wondered why that was never looked at

It was looked at multiple times.  But the root cause of the problem wasn't understood until recently, and thus previous attempts never completely solved it.


They are, you guys just didn't ask.

Well, we'll ask now.  Can you provide us with a list of links, or an mv_cutscenes.vp?

I'll provide a list of changed files later this evening.  Running a disk check on my external drive currently, due to the next quote.

Strangely, when I update SVN I still get the damaged file.  Until we upload a fix, you can use the old stu_fs1.vp.  The only difference is the addition of a few voice files for PXO validated missions.

Re: FSPort 3.4 Discussion!
The ai-disarm goal (and communications order) toggles the protect-ship flag on the target ship.  The original FS1 mission unprotected the Ramses once the Taranis arrives, but it's quite common for the player to keep ordering his wingmen to disarm it, which kills the engagement.  So I added another sexp to repeatedly unprotect the Ramses and restore the attack orders between it and the Taranis.

Re: FSPort 3.4 Discussion!
Ah, that old chestnut. I think it's pervasive enough that we need some kind of mod table flag for it. There are missions I've FREDded where the disarm and disable goals just had to be switched off because they broke the mission so badly (though, yes, repeated unprotect might well do the trick).

Congrats to the Team. I always loved this and I am sure to love this updated version again. Will play it next week-end.

Guys and girls, thank you.

Re: FSPort 3.4 Discussion!
Congrats guys! I had some time to play today, and I only have one question: who worked on the Scorpion and Shaitan? They did a pretty damn good job on the models.

Re: FSPort 3.4 Discussion!
congrats guys, but it seems you are missing a few new ships, like the ma'at. c:

Re: FSPort 3.4 Discussion!
The Ma'at was not in the FSPort-MediaVPs pack because it's also in FS2, so it's upgrade would go in the main MediaVPs. The only ships I know of that were important enough to bypass that formality were the Typhon and the Hades for obvious reasons.
