Nice combined installation and launcher.   :nod:  I am one of the old gamer that has the retail game box and discs for both games.

Nope. Just FS stated that an Orion is an nuclear (fusion-powered) submarine. Given their size and sheer inner volume I don't think it would be designed in a way it would be particular uncomfortable, though any kind of luxus would be a waste of space that'd be bad on the battlefield.

As someone who recently seems to have come down with a case of what is apparently infecting you, I sympathise.

Headcanon.   Using the hallfight cutscene for scale reference, in particular the marines against the door of the Elysium- I imagine Orions to be very very cramped for 10'000 crew.

Do you mean with that how the interior is built? Because 10000/2000m makes 1 crewman every 5 meters, but the ship is hundreds of meters wide and has dozens of decks.

You have ever been on a non-nuclear, military submarine? - You know the ones designed that way that at best two people in the entire boat can be away from their station/shared bed/galley
(Its a dying design as lot of componenents arctually get smaller, but they exist(ed))

The thing with that theory is that one of the characteristics of interceptors aside from speed is the fact of having stopping power in the form of ample secondaries.

This is something the Ulysses lacks, due to it being more in the space superiority breed, where maneuvrability and primary weapons are key.

The Ulysses definitely works as a scout though.

That's really good.   I was reading it in a hip hop tune for the first two lines til i spotted "holding out" then I twigged what inspired you and applied the appropriate tune to imagery of Johnny 5 with a rapidly draining battery.

The FreeSpace Upgrade Project / Re: Really finding this project a mess now

Thanks everyone!
My apologies, I got caught up reading too deep in older posts getting bad links and tried using some other launcher I ended up wiping out because it linked dead libraries. I finally found a hassle free GOG installer for FS2 before I read your replies.
I took the advice with Knossos from Kara in another older post too and voila easy as hell.
Thank you so much for bearing with me!

I just overthought and followed too many old posts trying to get oriented again after being away for years.
Plus I am just too curious about some things that were going on while I was gone.
Pretty overwhelming how far things have come along.
=S= to all of the work you guys have been doing!

Diaspora is pretty thrilling to play.
I fried my vid card during the heavier battle on my 50" TV so I took a break for a few weeks.
Came back and in one evening you guys got me all squared away. Card was old anyways, the fan expired during gameplay.
New vid card being shipped for my game rig. Just testing on a couple laptops with Discreet NVidia cards.
Productive this evening figuring things out from your advice.

Well, I thought it was at least?
Where does Knossos put the mods at? I try to run Diaspora and get immediate exe error?
File integrity checks all passed?....Hmmmm ok OpenAL error finally.
I'll try some more fiddling tomorrow lol

INCOMING TRANSMISSION FROM COMMAND




(Verse 1)
Where have all the wingmen gone and where are all the zods?
Where's the streetwise flight-squadron to fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight in a Mk1 Hercules?
Late at night I toss and I turn, and I dream of what we need!


(Chorus)
We need a pilot!
We're holding out for a pilot till the end of the night
They've gotta be strong, and they've gotta be fast
And they've gotta be fresh from the fight
We need a pilot!
We're holding out for a pilot who is ready for flight
They've gotta be sure, and it's gotta be soon
And they're gotta be larger than life,

Larger than life.


(Verse 2)
Somewhere after midnight in my wildest fantasies
Somewhere just beyond subspace, there's something reaching back for me
Escorting the Actium and reinforcing the 3rd fleet
It's gonna take an Alpha-1 to sweep me off my feet!!


(Chorus)
We need a pilot!
We're holding out for a pilot till the end of the night
They've gotta be strong, and they've gotta be fast
And they've gotta be fresh from the fight
We need a pilot,
We're holding out for a pilot who is ready for flight
They've gotta be sure, and it's gotta be soon
And they're gotta be larger than life,

Ah!
Ah!

We need a pilot,
We're holding out for a pilot till the end of the night...


(Bridge)
Up in the darkest reaches of the nebula
Out where the lightning causes EMPs
I could swear there is someone somewhere avoiding beams



Through the wind and the chill and the Cain
And Kayser and Banshee
I can feel their approach and- OH GOD THEIR FOLLOWING ME!

Ah!
AHHHHHHHH!   
(Explosion)

(Chorus)
We need a pilot!
We're holding out for a pilot till the end of the night
They've gotta be strong, and they've gotta be fast
And they've gotta be fresh from the fight
We need a pilot,
We're holding out for a pilot who is ready for flight
They've gotta be sure, and it's gotta be soon
And they're gotta be larger than life, life, life, life

We need a pilot!
We're holding out for a pilot till the end of the night!
They've gotta be strong, and they've gotta be fast
And they've gotta be fresh from the fight
We need a pilot,
We're holding out for a pilot who is ready for flight!
They've gotta be sure, and it's gotta be soon
And they're gotta be larger than life!


We need a pilot!
We're holding out for a pilot till the end of the night. . .


Oohooohoooo. . .

Ooooooowoooowowoooowowowoooo. . .





This took more effort to make then I'd like to admit. .

instrumental version of actual song:

Enjoy?
