FreeSpace Port 3.5 + FSPort Media VPs Release!

<< < (39/39)

Antares:
In Running the Gauntlet, once Omega 1 jumps out, all of your wingmen will automatically be ordered to defend Omega 2. This can trip up your wingmen, who will probably be dogfighting with fighters from the Lucifer by that time; you need to manually issue a new order for them to engage the enemy, or they'll get themselves shot down.

AV8R:
I'd image the newly-styled GTD Orion won't be in the next FSPort MediaVps release due to a lot of its new styling elements being obviously focused on beam weapons points (green spots everywhere), which of course were not part of the original Freespace story. Or maybe there was a 2nd "green-spotless" version of the new Orion developed specifically for use with FSPort?

Or are we just to ignore those little details and move on with our lives?  :P

Ha!  Okay, I'll fix that.

0rph3u5 has the right answer.  Wait for the new FSPort MVPs.



--- Quote from: 0rph3u5 on August 14, 2020, 01:50:56 am ---Because these two ships are being represented by unique variants for this mission, in order to preserve scanning behavior like in FS1*, they are not included in the MVPs radar icons table. Giving them radar icons used to be handled by the FS-Port MVPs which have not been updated yet.

* Technically the variants are no longer required as that kind of scanning behavior is now toggleable, but the makers of FS-Port have always been dedicated to a high degree of backwards comaptibility.

As of the 3.6 release, the mission now includes SCP-specific logic to toggle the scanning.  The ships are now scannable capital ships with the full scan duration.

Wanted to ask how to activate them; but today only the italian language package is available for 3.6.   
I think language choice is/was a future feature that was deployed by accident?

No, the language packs are officially released.  (In fact, they were released for 3.5 but never put on Knossos.)  I tried to edit the mod metadata and it looks like I accidentally made the language packs unavailable.  I'll push a 3.6.1 release and hopefully that will fix it.

I looked at the mission.  The AI has initial orders to guard Omega 2 with a priority of 88, but there aren't any orders that are explicitly triggered via event.  Just use good wingman management; any player orders will take priority.

Please actually wait for the FSPort MVPs release before jumping to any conclusions about it. :rolleyes:

There is an Orion_FS1 model included in the MVPs, which the Port will use.  It's in the standard MVPs right now if you want to look at it.

My post was meant to be completely tongue-in-cheek. You guys could paint purple elephants all over the Orion's hull and I'd still think FSO was the best thing since sliced bread (and i do like my bread sliced).  :lol:

I'm sure the new MediaVPs will exceed expectations (they always do).  :yes:

Cheers, guys!

That fixed it, thank you! :)
