Played AoA and WiH over the past couple of days. Have to say, best campaigns I've played yet.

Love the design of the new capships on both sides, the political intrigue, the cutscenes, everything.

Keep up the good work guys.

It would be interesting in Part 2 to have a mission that takes place on Earth, but I'm not sure if that's entirely possible.

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
Here's how to save the UEF:

1) Execute the Ubuntu elder sissies.
2) Install and reverse engineer beam cannons on your ships taken from GTVA wreckage.
3) Surrender to the GTVA (so the ships with the reverse engineered beams from step two cn actually go to good use.)

No no!  I love the mod!  That's just what Commander Ivanova says at the beginning of B5 season 3.

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
Because I play FS2 so I can watch metal explode and drool over weapon-turret laden destroyer models while driving Helios torpedos into them, I will always have to side with the GTVA.

Mass drivers are so much cooler than beams, though.

Yeah, watching a Solaris open up with all Arashis and all her missile turrets is a sight to behold.

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
What do you mean by "open up" ? Is there some kind of animation ?

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
I disagree with the missiles and mass drivers being cooler than beams.  I'm running on a laptop with an integrated graphics card that cannot handle all the projectiles used by UE ships.  Beams are easier for my computer's graphics card to handle.  All the projectiles end up becoming little squares with static inside them...

He means firing weapons.

Yes. The covers on the launch tubes open before firing, and there's a nice particle effect when they fire. Like so:

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
if time/resources were spent on improving mass driver damage rather than reverse engineering beams, they would probably end up being superior weapons.

Just wished the FSO animation code could handle translation correctly. Recoil would look awesome on those mass drivers !

You know, at one point during development, those mass drivers had a better DPS than BGreens....

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
or maybe the UEF could develop a gunboat kind of class that mounts an ungodly amount of mass driver turrets but not a lot else.  such a ship could have a similar role to the chimera, but require more cover.

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
Sorry to interfere the discussion - I'll make it quick:

Finished WiH p1 an hour ago. Still pretty speechless. And I thought Vassago's Dirge were the pinnacle of innovative campaign-creation this year. Some of the big game-companies can take a leaf out of this book.
I knew, I encountered something special when I read the letters "SCP" five years ago. Thank you for that great experience, HLP-Community. Especially those who reach for the stars and manage to make some of these mods and campaigns better than many of the big budget games coming out today. You all rock! Greets from Germany.

Thanks for the attention.

Now go on  :)

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
On the topic of Vassago's Dirge, I noticed
Spoiler:
a creepy red nebula pshyco mission here and there both. Was this intentional, coincidental, or a side effect of having Axem on the team? Also, about the short-range subspace jump: same question.

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
Axem was only hired after Vassago's Dirge was already complete; If there are story similarities, they are entirely coincidental.

I was speaking more of presentation than story in this case, but I suppose your answer works just as well for that.  :nervous:
