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: RELEASE - Aftermath 2.0
It would be nice if one of the admins could add this to the announcements. This campaign is definitely worth a try. :nod:

Re: RELEASE - Aftermath 2.0
I've run through it. No major issue, no balancing issue. It doesn't kicks asses like BP or STR, but it's definitely a very good campaign. never played the campaign before its conversion (don't have FS1), but wondering, how much of the original gameplay did you fix ?

You should probably mention that this is set in the Derelict continuity.

Is it ? If there was references to it, then I missed it.

Re: RELEASE - Aftermath 2.0
Cold Element is the name of the over-arching continuity covering the campaigns Aftermath, Derelict, Warzone, Twilight, and the pending Blackwater Operations.  (As quoted from the FreeSpace Wiki)

Mission EP1M3 is difficult.  Go to an easier setting if you need to.

Spoiler:
Once the shivans start arriving concentrate on the shivans bombs, bombers and fighters in that order.


The game play is pretty much the same as in the original.

This is all I've got at the current time.  I couldn't figure out how to put it in the announcement.

I honestly can't remember if I've ever played this one.  Guess I can now rectify that either way. :)

Re: RELEASE - Aftermath 2.0
Thanks for doing this guys :)

Aftermath was pretty much authored by me (I created all but one mission) with some help from all of those credited. It was fairly close to pre-MOD days (there were tools but it was all experimental).  Everyone was making things fairly similar to what I did with Aftermath... some were better than my effort but I do feel like it was a fairly solid piece for the time.  I made a ton of mistakes but it was good fun to put together.

It was never written to be part of the Derelict/Warzone contunity but it doesn't do enough that you couldn't write it in.  I'm sure Agatheron or Kellan played the campaign at some point and they may have put a few subtle nods in somewhere.  We did that allot... it was fun :)

Excellent job: one more is immortalised...

On a second thought, I always wondered what became of the midgard installation that is described in episode 3? It was described as an enemy HUB (very much like the jotunheim) and was said to be nearby, but you never actually engaged the base in the campaign...

Re: RELEASE - Aftermath 2.0
This mod requires FSOpen 3.6.10 and the 3.6.10 Media VPs.  The FSPort and FSPort Media VPs are required.  You also should be using the 5.5.e FSOpen launcher.  Make sure the mod.ini file refers to the proper FSport files.  Your FSport media folder should be fsport-mediavps and the fsport folder should be labeled fsport, if not you either need to change the mod.ini file or the name of your FSPort media VP folder.

Re: RELEASE - Aftermath 2.0
Reproducible error in Tides of Power: PVC Narath rams Drake Station. Also, that mission has no recommendations if you lose the station; it probably ought to have at least something.

Re: RELEASE - Aftermath 2.0
Played this but the second mission is pretty much impossible to complete. Even with full burners there is no way to destroy all of the manticores in time before they fire a bunch of missiles at the faustus. So each wave is guaranteed to take a good chunk of health off that ship. And after disabling it with only distrupters it only has like 46% health left.
mission impossible.

Re: RELEASE - Aftermath 2.0
I've completed it... :wtf:

EDIT: Just played through it again to make sure I didn't cheat and make the ship invisible the first time.  I had the ship down to 89 when I disabled its engines.  The Manticore wings are rough, because they always launch a salvo, but it's definitely not impossible to save the ship.  I did it on Hard and the Faustus was saved with 9% left.  It was fairly hard, because even when under attack the Manticores wouldn't break off.

Nevertheless, this mission may suffer from the same issue that the Hammer and the Anvil mission in the Port does.  Hostile fighters seem to be more effective with missiles, and this mission makes that obvious.

I'm still getting the same error message. When using FSPORT, is 3.1.1 ok? And also the FSPORT Media VPs? I am using the Launcher 5.5e too. Could you please provide a screenshot what the FSPORT Media Folder and FSPORT Media VP Folder?   :nervous:
