Between the Ashes: Slaves of Chaos Remastered
March 19, 2024

Today we are releasing Between the Ashes: Slaves of Chaos Remastered! This is a major upgrade to the original Between the Ashes with improvements spanning from the user interface to the modpack and even the original missions themselves. A summarized changelog is below. This release marks a major milestone for BtA2 development; the modpack is complete. In fact this is less of an upgrade of BtA1 as much as it is a release of BtA2 without BtA2's mission files. This release will also serve as a bit of an open Beta Test of the entirely revamped UI built from the ground up using SCPUI. If you run into issues or have bugs to report, you can catch us on our Discord Server or submit them to our Trello board using the form found here.

Worth mentioning that we've created a system to track various player choices across campaigns.. such as if a certain antagonist escapes or not. These choices may or may not be reflected in future releases.  :nervous:

Campaigns included:

--Having been discharged from military service within the GTA, you are now flying for the biggest paycheck. Your next job might be more sinister than it seems...

Slaves of Chaos
--We defeated the Shivans but it wasn't without loss. Our world is gone and we are left in confusion. Where do we go from here? Who do we trust? We stand in the rubble and yet we must learn to how to survive when the Destroyers return.

Fly as a GTA pilot serving under Admiral Po aboard the GTD Intrepid. You helped defeat the Shivans, you chose the right side during the GTI Rebellion, and now your skill has awarded you a squad position assigned to the wasteland of Antares. Your job is to be a simple peace-keeping force in a system that's a melting pot of Terrans and Vasudans.. both good, and bad. But when your early patrol is hit by cunning smugglers, you'll follow some threads that lead to an unexpected enemy... one that out-matches even the Admiral.

--Roughly three years have passed since the events in Antares. As a pilot with the 47th Cutthroats stationed on the Intrepid, you will perform a strategic role in the destruction of a major Hammer of Light target.

Operation Templar
--Operation Templar, a Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance endeavor, hunts down the last remnants of the Hammer of Light.  Shortly after the GTVA's plan to eradicate the HoL becomes known, The rebels stage a desperate last stand, hijacking a Vasudan destroyer and taking hostages.

A Note From Mjn-

I am excited to finally release Between the Ashes: Slaves of Chaos! This project began as an exercise for me to learn FRED and with the help of many others, it became something better than I ever hoped. There's a whole list of guys around HLP that put up with me and my questions over the years.. and I owe more than one of them quite a few favors! Those guys are in addition to the actual team listed below who put in many hours to get this all put together. Believe me when I tell you, this was a team effort.. not an Mjn.Mixael effort.. and I really hope you enjoy it!

Lastly, to the best of my ability, all the mod assets are credited properly in the credits.tbl. So if you are going to ransack the modpack (and I know you are!), just be sure to give proper credit. After that, take whatever you need, no need to ask. Go forth and make more campaigns, for that is the true lifeblood of HLP!

Feel free to join #bta on the Hard-Light Discord for discussion/support.
