[Re-release] Hellgate: Ikeya, Omnibus version (1.1.1)

(1/8) > >>

Took a bit longer than expected - now I will be gone for a while (got some papers to write):

Why the SC Taranis retreated to the Ikeya-System of all places, is a mystery that baffled the strategists of the GTA. To solve the mystery the GTD Galatea was sent to scout the system and confirm the size of the Shivan presence there.

Note: This release will eventually folded into a Memories of the Great War-"omnibus" release. (Done)

Summary of changes since the 2007 release:
- Updated Mission 2 to make it robust and forgiving.
- Overhauled Mission 3 to employ a better mechanic for the Download from the Suspicion.
- Added a new Epilogue. (Note: Due to engine limitations the sequence of the Epilogue is not optimal, I would have prefered the Fiction to come at end instead)
- Each mission now uses a system that limits the use of the Support Ship. Each Support Ship will now leave the field after resupplying 5 times. The maximum number of support ships is also capped each mission, the cap scales with difficulty, e.g. on Insane it's 2/3/2/5 while on Medium it's 7/12/7/15 (read {Mission 1}/{Mission 2}/{Mission 3}/{Mission 4}).

Hidden Text: Loading Screen Texts • Show[Mission 1] The Sianai Incident (2327), part 1

Since the beginning of the Fourteen Year War, scientists on both sides researched ways to transit ships through higher subspace domains. The GTA's efforts remained fruitless as more conventional subjects for wartime research were favoured by the Admiralty Board.

[Mission 2] The Sianai Incident (2327), part 2

In 2327, a Vasudan research team reported a breakthrough in subspace technology at the Sianai research station in Aldebaran. While the details of their research were not transmitted, the PVN leadership greatly anticipated the practical application of the results.

[Mission 3] The Sianai Incident (2327), part 3

Information of the Sianai team's breakthrough was leaked to agents of the GTI. As a response the GTI dispatched a covert operations unit behind enemy lines to observe, sabotage and steal the enemy research.
[Mission 4] The Sianai Incident (2327), part 4

As result of the GTI's sabotage, the Sinai research station was partially displaced into subspace, destroying the equipment and killing the scientists. The GTI team was never heard from again.

Played, enjoyed - altough personally i foung Lights more fun to play, yet Hellgate was definatelly worth time spend to finish it - i realy enjoyed mission with data dowloading - it was a challenge for me, and yet it was still fair.

Hopefully we will get third part of memories soon!

why no highlight?

I didn't ask for one, and personally I don't think it deserves one: It's a re-release after all.

If it's a major improvement it deserves highlight (and you get more people to play it). :)
