Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Also, I loved the fluff and the analogies to the American Civil War.  I've seen the NTF/GTVA as Space Confederates/Unionists for a while, so the comparisons were cool! 

I think it's an interesting analogy too.  However, didn't the Union have much more support for the war domestically (at least after Lincoln's re-election) than the GTVA has for its war?

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Nyarly:

Nice to hear that you finally got it to work, and you liked it!

Actually, the Grant-Lee reference was solely intended to establish Severanti's attrition-based command style, nothing else. But I can understand where you're coming from with that analogy; the NTF is both racist and industrially-outmatched.
"We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, 'I know this is not politically correct, but...' in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Disregard my recent post in this thread, I misread 'NTF' as 'UEF' for a second and then made my comment on political support.

Is there a way to delete comments?

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Well, it's still an interesting questions, as a number of the FS2 failure debriefs imply very shaky political support for the war against the NTF.

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
I normally don't have any problem addressing problems myself, but I've missed the fix with this some :/  Looks like I'm missing the Mainhall (which I am upon loading). But where is it? herp derp.

Code: [Select]
Could not load in main hall mask 'BP1-Mainhall1-m'!

(This error most likely means that you are missing required 1024x768 interface art.)

Full Log. It's a decently fresh install too, so my modline isn't set up fully.

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
I'm having a FREDding problem, and I'd like to see if anyone here has any ideas.

During the Lopez mission, you have two fighter and two bomber wings under your command; Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta. Midway through the mission, I want to replace the player's current complement of damaged/dead strikecraft with a fresh new complement of 100% strikecraft. Problem is, there doesn't seem to be any way that I know of to "revive" destroyed ships mid-mission, even by attempting some save/load script trickery. I'd bypass the problem by just launching four more new wings to replace the initial wings, but then the new wings wouldn't show up properly on the HUD wingman display.

It'd be a real balance pain if I had to scrap this feature and force the player to use an ever-dwindling strikecraft complement throughout this (long) mission. So, does anyone know any way to revive dead ships?

Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Maybe try using wing waves? Kill the wing when they are to be reinforced, and allied craft will fill the gaps, filling the hud wing indicator as well?
 Or something similiar

Just set waves with a new arrival cue?
Have existing craft depart for plot reasons.

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Them departing would make perfect sense actually if you ask me, they are getting 'relieved'.  If its specifically calibrated fred-wise to have them pull out roughly when they would all be dead, then that sounds like exactly when they would be pulled out and replaced in reality anyways.

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
I don't think you guys are quite grasping the problem. Once a wing's departure cue becomes true, new waves stop arriving, and it'll never start again. You can't say 'okay, send that wave away, then call in a fresh wave'. Trickery using proxy ships is complicated by the HUD wingman display.

I think I have an idea of how to do this using proxy ships. It'll be a bit hacky.

Well isn't that what modding is about? :P
Or programming in general for that matter.

 
Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Scripting can replace ships in a wing (but not remove or add). I'm using this in the RTS script to move the player into different wings depending on which ship he chooses to control. I never tried it for dead ships though and the engine might just fail to accept that properly.
Here goes scripting and copy paste coding

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Well, despite all the advances in coding, scripting, and FREDding that the SCP has made over the years, we're still trying to make a decade-and-a-half-old space sim do things it was never designed to. Hacky workarounds and such are to be expected.

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
I wonder how an Orion mission would play out... big ship like that doesn't seem like it could pull off any maneuvers at all, not like a Karuna that can move rather quickly for capital ship standards. Probably bugs down to "point and shoot", but maybe some command duties or special abilities could spice it up.

Out of curiousity - what exactly affects Sev's health? Does he die if hull integrity drops too low or the mission goals are failed?

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
The Lopez mission will require you to coordinate moving the Carthage, attacking and defending with your strikecraft, and using special abilities as the tactical situation mandates to achieve victory. What the gameplay lacks in fast-paced fighter action, it should make up for with new and detailed tactical scenarios.

Severanti dies on the bridge of the Steadfast if you lose both of the Argos.

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
Sounds like the Lopez mission will be fairly difficult (at least compared to the previous Severanti mission, and I'm not saying this as an insult).  So you'd probably recommend playing it on Easy to start out?

Re: Blue Planet: The Battle Captains (Fan Campaign)
It'll be balanced for Normal, but Easy might be a safer choice; let's just say this mission won't be a cakewalk. Play on Hard or Impossible at your own risk; I don't intend to beta-test or design for higher difficulties.
