Just a little something I noticed... (Shield oversight)
FSPort 3.3
FSP MediaVPs 3.6.12

Mission: Single Mission-  MDU-02.fs2 (The Great Escape)

I was playing along like any normal mission, when towards the end of the mission I heard a shield-damage sound. I thought this was really odd as this mission is based in the Great War, no shields and ML-16 spammage. Closer inspection showed that Alpha 3 (AI: Coward) has a shield system, while no other fighters have (including Allied & Hostile craft).

Would this just have been an oversight in the mission design?


Anyway, I have adjusted the file here to remove Alpha 3's shield. No other adjustments have been made.

Play Tested twice on medium difficulty. Alpha 2, Beta 2, Alpha 3 died in that order in both sessions.

Alpha 3's a coward and hiding behind his shield while everyone else is flying shieldless, like men.

It was like that in the original version. The mission designer (who was not a Volition employee) most likely forgot to disable Alpha 3's shield system.
"Your fighter is running out of oil.  Please check under the hood and add more if necessary"
--strings.tbl, entry 177

"Freespace is very tired.  It is shutting down to get some rest."
