RELEASE: Storm Front Episodes I and II (including Beyond the Mirror)


Installation:

  • See download link


Important hints:

  • Make sure you delete any previous releases of Storm Front I and II from your FS2 folder before you downlad anything new

  • Before you start the game, make sure you have the Storm Front Stock installed correctly!

  • I recommend to create a new pilot


My thanks to a few people who helped me:
Mobius

High Max
Spoon
Scotty

Gameplay hints:

  • The Prometheus R has been modified so that it indeed inflicts more hull damage than the Subach

  • If your wingmen's default loadout includes Trebs there will (most likely :nervous: ) be a sexp that makes them use them

  • This campaign is optimized for medium skill level


Features:

  • Updated technichal database

  • New ship models

  • Table edits


PLEASE NOTE: This thread only serves to discuss Storm Front I - Prohepcy, Storm Front II - Cthulhu or Storm Front II - Beyond the Mirror. For issues concerning the Storm Chasers mini campaigns please visit this thread.

Re: RELEASE: Storm Front Episodes I and II (Release 2)
Well, here it is: Release 2 of the first two episodes of Storm Front. I fixed tons of bugs, and revamped the missions one more time. Thanks to High Max, both campaigns should also be finally free of most of the grammar mistakes.

Storm Front I and II now make use of FSO 3.6.10 final. By transfering all of the non-campaign specific data to a seperate mod folder I hope to reduce redundance. I hope this concept works.

Re: RELEASE: Storm Front Episodes I and II (Release 2)
Will the updated What If be coming out soon?
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.

The Asteria has that plastic wrap shine like Blue Planet's Lucifer.

Yes. I'd like to see if the Stock works fine, then I will re-release What If.

I don't like that, too. But my modelling skills are very limited so I can't do anything about it.

I hope by saying that, I didn't say too much, so I kept that very vague.
It's okay, but don't say anything more. :nod: ;7

The name of this campaign illicits a bit of apprehension in me. Anyway, I'm a bit curious - What will a new pilot achieve/mediate with this campaign?

 
Re: RELEASE: Storm Front Episodes I and II (Release 2)
Downloading, but - is there a reason SFS_models is linked twice in the original post?

Why?

That's just a recommendation from me for people who do not have much experience with such mods. I once read that using one and the same pilot file with several mods can cause problems, though I never encoutered any by myself. If you know what you're doing, you can use one of your existing pilots, of course.

Yes: The page's author didn't pay attention. :p

 
Re: RELEASE: Storm Front Episodes I and II (Release 2)
Hello SF-Junky,
Now i have time to test your overhauled Stormfront I Campaign.
I played 4 missions so far and found a little issue on Mission 2: "ON PATROL"
Here i missing the roger beep in the chatter of the wingman.
Otherwise a very great work.

Merry Xmas Junky

Greetings Peter

 
Re: RELEASE: Storm Front Episodes I and II (Release 2)
Hello...

Very nice to play - fair difficulty
Very nice Storytelling..

Now starting Part II and oh shocking... in the First mission i must Cheat.
I am unable to scan the ships fast enough. Any ships jump out before.
I am to slow???

Greetings Peter

Re: RELEASE: Storm Front Episodes I and II (including Beyond the Mirror)
Beyond the Mirror has just been uploaded. Please make sure you have the latest Stock files. Also it would be nice if a mod or admin could highlight this thread. Thank you. :)


Oh, and not that I forget it: I had the idea for BtM and started working on it before BP came out. ;7

Re: RELEASE: Storm Front Episodes I and II (including Beyond the Mirror)
Many of the new cb anims are broken : they make the game crash when they are played ingame. I remember that happened before with Stormfront - I'm re-DLing the stock file to make sure it's not a download issue.

EDIT : Confirmed with up-to-date, freshly downloaded stock files.

Are you using 3.6.10?  The cbanims will not work with the nightly builds.

Why is that? I use a nightly build and for me they work.

I still strongly recommend to use 3.6.10 final.

Re: RELEASE: Storm Front Episodes I and II (including Beyond the Mirror)
I always use Nightlies, the last one actually. You might want to find what is causing this cbanim issue and Mantis it, or your campaign is likely to have issues with the future 3.6.12.

You say it works for you with a Nightly ? Lemmie run a debug build...

Edit : here is attached the log. Tell me if you can't reproduce this issue yourself, I'll Mantis it.
