The FSCRP team is proud to bring you this updated release of the Aeos Affair.

Quote
   Aeos research base is located on a frozen planet in the Altair system. As
   you know, Altair is about as far away from the front lines of the war as
   you can get. We have no significant military presence here. All of our
   fighting ships are on the front or elsewhere where they are needed more.
   We have only a token force of patrol fighters and various civilian support
   ships. But that's alright with us. Nothing ever happens out here.

   Elsewhere, the war is going well. The NTF has been defeated. The Shivans
   are threatening Capella, but the Colossus is on station there. There are
   rumors of a massive Shivan invasion force looming beyond GTVA system, but
   rumors are a dime a dozen in this place. We expect to continue our work
   here in peace.

   Aeos seems to be an abandoned Ancient outpost. The Ancients must have
   left this planet in a hurry. There are miles of tunnels and chambers here.
   There are many artifacts here. They all seem to be in disarray. Some are
   damaged. Others look as if they were simply dropped and left where they
   fell. We have a goldmine here, but it will take years to discover what
   secrets are held by this frozen rubble. But time is one thing we have lots
   of...

This campaign is a cosmetic rerelease including the latest in graphics upgrades and compatible with the new 3.6.10 MediaVPs.

If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

Excellent! Its been years since I played this but I remember it being a very good ...short but sharp sort of campaign.

And a difficult one indeed... I read that somewhere and I finished this campaign a couple of days back and I must say some parts can get a little annoying, but I love those challenging missions :D

PS: would be nice for you to check the arrival and departure of ships... fighters from destroyers arrive from subspace and not from the destroyer itself... I know this was a cosmetic update, but arriving from the ship is as cosmetic as making the nameplate for it.

That is much more than cosmetic, actually.  That can cause mission progress problems if the carrier ship is destroyed or out of place.

What about turning off warp effect? That way, it'll look like it came out of the fighterbay without really altering the mission.

Yeah, this is one of the hardest campaigns you'll ever find. My recommendation is to turn the difficulty down to very-easy if you need to.

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

Re: RELEASE: Aeos Affair
WOW!!!
What a blast form the past.  I haven't played FS in years. (Hell, my joystick isn't even USB).
But I see that I should start up again, after seeing what the community was up to.

Thanks for putting in the effort for upgrading my campaign.  I really enjoyed writing it and I'm pretty stoked to see that it is still a favorite.

As for completing it, it can be done, with all bonus objectives, on the very easy setting.  I know.  I wrote it and had to play test the bugger.  :pimp:

I guess I'll need to buy a new joystick.

Icefire: There's a name I haven't seen in years.  Good to see ya again!

Re: RELEASE: Aeos Affair
Oh, I forgot.

I have a Walkthrough written by another player for the campaign.  It's been archived for years, but I could pass it on to HLP to get it posted.  Let me know.

PickleHead!  You showed up again - welcome back!  Are you going to stick around, or are you going to vanish like you did in 2005? :p

Hehehehehe.  So it's the latter. :drevil:

While you're here, we'd love it if you posted that walkthrough you mentioned a few posts up. :)
