Is that the one where you're defending that Iceni knockoff and the three destroyers are absolutely ra- er, devastating some fools off in the distance?
Yes, they were absolutely ravaging some fools off in the distance. Not sure what's wrong with saying that.

No, but I suppose one could almost consider that a BoE too.  "Number of the Beast" is the mission where you bring the Nyarlathotep through the node to Tau Sigma Station, and run headlong into the fleet of striking workers, whereupon all hell breaks loose.  The mission's notable in that your wing is tasked with defending just one or two ships, so even though beams are flying all over the place, it's completely dependent on the player as to whether or not it's completed successfully.

Ah the riot mission. That was a cool one.

Artemis bombers out of goddamn nowhere is what I remember most from it.

Quoted for truth.
That and warping in a ganymede. And the Nyalathotep suddenly firing.

Who was piloting these bombers anyway? Morgan Tech mercenaries?

Re: Battuta's Guide to Finding Your First (Or Next!) Campaign
Talking about Derelict, apparently.  One thing this thread has made clear is how much crap I haven't been playing as it was released.  I was on a good FS2 kick several months ago, but then it just...stopped.

Re: Battuta's Guide to Finding Your First (Or Next!) Campaign
The first non-official FS campaign I paid was "Destiny Of Peace".  That was absolutely awesome for only a seven mission campaign (IIRC).

Has there ever been an attempt to update the graphics of it to FS2 standards (i.e., it plays on the FS engine)?

Re: Battuta's Guide to Finding Your First (Or Next!) Campaign
Destiny of Peace is available on FSPort IIRC (might even be directly included with FSport instead of having to DL it separately).
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

It's not included in the same download, but it's available from the FSPort site.

It'd be awesome to have some contributions on some of the missing material.

Guess I'll plug my own *ahem* mediocre first campaign...

Ever wondered about the story of the NTC Trinity? You know, that cruiser that opened up the Knossos, unleashed the Shivans and stranded derelict in the nebula? In Crossing the Styx, you get to experience the full story first-hand.

Re: Battuta's Guide to Finding Your First (Or Next!) Campaign
Just read the history (never paid this topic any mind 'cause I'm no beginner)... and I'd like to request for Light of Antares and Hellgate Ikeya to be added to the list of FS1-era-ish campaigns

both aren't as broken as Rain on Ribos 4 (just replayed; oh boy, is the balance off in many of those missions) and LoA's "GTA vs HoL vs Shivans in a mission"-type scenarios has never been been made before and again as far as I know
(I was going to but welll ... that's over now)
