Re: Inferno: Nostos Discussion
I noticed that the Vasudans had a Typhon still kicking around. This surprises me considering that by now they have to be like...50 years old?

Re: Inferno: Nostos Discussion
Cool! You actually made Multiple Subach upgrades?  :D

The Mihos, I assume, is an entry-level fighter used (in different variants) by both species?
The old Mihos was a Rogue Vasudan Fighter based on the Ulysses, I think.
The SD-14 is a disruptor

It's the starting light fighter yes.

They don't, we'll be providing Inferno upgrade tables for some ships if we get time to do them all. The Colossus won't be showing up either :)

Re: Inferno: Nostos Discussion
The Vasudans have their own set of capship weapons except for the Plasma anti-warship ones. The weapons we had for the Vasudans there weren't very good, so we dropped those. The Vasudans have an energy based flak and far better AAA beams than the Terrans. The Vasudan bombers have beams instead of a plasma cannon system however.
So Terran bombers have plasma cannons and the Vasudans beams. Got it.
What about EA bombers? Are they equipped with railguns like their capships are?

Sounds cool. Nice to know someone other than the Shivans and Ancients have beam bombers now.

How do you control the beams on your bombers? Like a turret?
Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world — "No, you move." - Captain America

Secondary stuff is for when you run out of bombs.

No it's a new ship.

It's been years since I played INFR1, what was your homeship for that game (if there was one)?

It's already confirmed that the Sol Gate infiltration mission is in, and you'll fly a Stentor there.

When you say Mediavps2014 in the OP, are you referring to the beta version out now or when Mediavps2014 is finalized?

Re: Inferno: Nostos Discussion
Right now beta 2. If the final is out first and we need to make any further edits then we will do so before release.

Since our tables are nothing like the FS2 retail ones we have to call the model files directly into our core ships.tbl instead of using the mediavp tbms to do that. So it works a bit different than how a standard FS2 campaign usually does it. Since we are calling the new HTL models added in the newest mediavps directly the older ones won't work at all as they'll be missing model files.

Right now beta2 only has one minor issue were it adds a Ulysses table entry which is incomplete and causes an outright crash if you click on it in the lab or FRED, but otherwise is working fine. This is caused by a missing no-create flag.

Check it with the new 2014 release. It's no longer beta.

At that time no as this version was being worked on in secret in case we couldn't get it to work correctly so we reported it privately. Looks like it has been fixed in the final vps.

I'll start debugging with the final builds once the rest have been downloaded.
