Title: Most Recognizable Freespace Dialogue?
Post by: Iron Wolf on February 19, 2007, 08:49:43 pm
What do you think is the most recognizable dialogue from Freespace? As in, the ones people are most likely to identify as being part of the Freespace universe if you were to recite them?

For me, it would probably be the “Surrender Belasiauris (sp)” lines. If I heard someone say “Gunnery Control, power up photon beam cannons. Commence plasma core insertion” I’d probably assume they have played Freespaceat one point.

What good old days are you talking about? You started playing like, yesterday.

And I don't even know where you got the hacked tables from. I guess that's common now or something. You never played with your files modified in the "real" old days. Anyone who got a "hacked tables" message was booted immediately.

IIUC, the mediavps currently cause a "hacked tables" message when active during a multiplayer game.

I love it when there are no friendlies left to support you (including your wingmen), and you've got between 1 and 10 percent hull integrity, with like six bogies on your tail, and you jump out to be scolded by Command about your cowardice jeopardizing the GTVA... it's even more ironic if the great Alpha 1 does manage to pull it off, and, once again, no mention is made that no-one that flew with him ever made it back home... :ick:  Instead, Command is just happy the mission was accomplished.  I should put in a suggestion to somehow change that behaviour a bit...

The obligatory "Dive Dive Dive!"...

First encounter with the Sathanas, seeing four red beams pierce the nebula gas and obliterate the Vasudan ship, and just sitting absolutely still like a deer in headlights... then this enormous warp portal opens, and I see the thing's black silhoutte enter.
This one isn't really a quote, but the experience was amazing. Not sure if Volition intended for players to see it this way, but with this is how it turned out with the mediavps super-thick nebula effects...

That's how they intended it.

You know that mission where you go back to gamma draconis, the one with the comm nodes? They use the second model there because they have a crapload of saths jumping in. I think, I haven't played that mission in a while.

The model for the lowest LOD is more like the Lucy and Sath combined; it looks like a triangle or somethin... target em and find out?

Close but no. The SJ Sathanas' there were actually SJD Sathanas', and their model is just a tiny triangle with the low TC-TRI texture (I think). It's also used in the missions with the Sathanas' around Capella. Some people also use it in missions to make beam cannons miss.

I found the model for that, too... I was wondering what the heck it was...  I can add a pic of that later.
In FRED, you do have a choice for SJ Sath, SJD Sath, but I'm not sure how to get minicap in... I'll have to take another look.

If I heard a single word from the terse opening dialog in "Argonautica" where Command and the stuck Aquitaine are parsing out responsibilities with the player as an interested party I would recognize it immediately, like hearing a single note of a familiar song. The delivery and the situation sets the stage for the desperate tone of the final five-mission sequence.

Alpha: Command, this is Alpha wing. We are now in position. One wing of Mara fighters in range, designation Aries.
Command: Negate the Maras, Alpha. Secure this area on the double.
Aquitaine: Thank you for your assistance, Alpha wing. The Argo should be here in under five minutes.
<SCv Abaddon arrives>
Aquitaine: Alpha, this is the Aquitaine. You take care of the fighters, we'll worry about the Abaddon. Destroy its beam turrets if you get the opportunity.
