- You rewrote an entire alternate campaign starting from "Mystery of the Trinity", because you got tired of losing the mission from holding the Shivans off for 15 minutes
- On one occasion, the Sathanas actually turned tail and ran when you began your attack run in "Bearbaiting".
- The last time you played "A Lion at the Door", the Shivans called off their invasion, shut down the Knossos, and refused to let you progress any further until you got a life.
- When the game explodes to the sheer awesomeness of your flying

- When the game crashes since your score is too big for that tiny variable to hold.

- When Petrarch promotes you to admiral as soon as the game starts
- When you think of urine as a Vasudan drink.
- When you feel the urge to compile the segmented game music from both games and make your very own FreeSpace soundtrack (like this).
-Send e-mails to game companies telling them the backstory of Freespace and ask for them to make Freespace3

-You are secretely building a GTF Erinyes in your backyard.

-You own a high-powered telescope and are always looking for subspace portal openings in the sky

-Every time you look at the sun and see a spec or two, you freak out, thinking Sathanas' are gathering around it.

-You own all the Freespace soundtracks on your ipod/mp3

-You own the most high-tech joystick in the world JUST to play Freespace 2

-You think realistic sims like IL2 Sturmovik are crap

-When you send fan-mail to Robert Loggia not because of his movies, but because of his inspiring voice

-When you hope its the Vasudans that humanity makes first contact with, and not shivans

-When you are still playing Freespace.
- When you imagine Robert Loggia, dressed in GTVA livery, jumping on a large keyboard in the Aquitaine's hangar.
- When you imitate Admiral Wolf, Admiral Shima, Admiral Petrarch, or Admiral Khafre's voice every time you see a Command brief.
 - When you ask your granddad what Vasuda Prime looked like
- When you get an SMS from Command.

- When you fill your MSN sound archive with FreeSpace sounds and voices;

- When you watch Dragon Ball and wonder if FreeSpace beams are capable, at least, of vaporizing Dragon Ball characters' clothes(their beams can destroy planets but aren't effective against clothes);

- When you think it takes more than 5 kills to become an Ace;

- When you wish you have an incorporated subspace drive that allows you to escape from embarassing situations;

- When you make love with your girlfriend or wife with continuous references to beam cannons and "DIVE! DIVE! DIVE! [...]";

- When you think that mythological beasts and evil deities are named after Shivan ships;
- When you can get drunk and still play FreeSpace 2 without dying.
- When your favourite weapon in Unreal Tournament is the pulse gun (right hand mouse button). (it is a green beam)
- When a situation arises, whatever it may be, you're like "Command, we have a situation here!"
- When you see a bully coming your way and think, "Reading hostile indicators."
- When you say something highly awkward in a conversation, realise it and think "Get me outta here, Command!"
- When you think that getting hit by an SJ Sathanas is the same as getting slapped in the face.
- When you set "Incoming jump signature! Hostile configuration!" as call sound on your mobile phone
- When you start getting pissed off about people trying to add non-canon things into the canon FS2 library of encyclopaedia...
- When you don't know what's canon anymore and just play the game.
- When you use Photoshop and different Channels and automatically group custom Alpha Channels into "Alpha Wing".
- When you think of onion rings as "small, edible PVI Karnaks".
- When you always drive your vehicle at 25 m/s (90 km/h).
- When you are immune to motion sickness.
- When upon hearing the news that HLP is shutting down and FS3 will never be made, you commit suicide, for there is truly no point in living anymore in this Hell.
- When you're certain that afterlife holds a FS3 DVD. And if it turns out it doesn't, you'll unkill yourself out of protest.

See, 3 days ago, late in the evening, just as I finished playing FS, I had to go close a window in another room. There was a big storm, I was alone and it was dark. In the other room, I heard a sound that was awfully like the shivan "voice". Turns out it was just the curtains/window cover going up and down cause of the wind, thus making the noise of the shivans.

- You can recite the whole "Thirty-two years have passed since the Great War..." intro speech.

- You get younger children to be the Orion in the opening cut scene, including how it rotates.
- You have an FS2 ship as your desktop background.
- You have customised you computer's sound and visual themes so they are like the FS2 interface.

- You have pictures of FS2 ships/scenes, and have used them for the cover of your subject folders at school.
- You have created a work of art based on the Shivan Juggernaught Sathanas that has been put on display in your school because the art teacher was absolutely amazed by it. (This is actually true of me, pity I don’t have a picture of it, Excalibur)
- You can recite at least 100 members’ names from HLP of the top of your head.

- You have every single award/medal, all obtained without cheating.
- You often do some spring cleaning with an Erinyes fully loaded with BFReds.
- You have a computer able to run 100 fps with all FS2_Open features on at the highest detail and running a mission with 100 HTL ships all firing with over 100 planets, suns and backgrounds.

- You can do a whole mission without targeting your enemies.
- You watch your enemies suffer at your hand, from their point of view.
- Your hostile sensors appear to be scrambled sometimes, but never lock onto any hostiles because you like how the ` + K key combination creates distant explosions.

- You have created a mission where you order 100 Boanerges armed with Helios’ to attack a Sathanas only to see a chain reaction occur because the AI is good at intercepting friendly bombs with the hull of their ships.
- You are surrounded by a barrage of friendly missiles and lasers in the Rahu gas miner mission, but you don’t fire a shot.
- Unknown 01 never warps out in that mission due to hull failure.

- There are more than fifty points on your list.
- You (someone else) have actually checked the above statement to make sure it’s true.

- Freespace 2 ships always win against Imperial ships.
- You laugh at how Imperial ships have to have a visual view of the battle, otherwise they can’t continue.
- The Death Star was really destroyed by the Colossus, which is the perfect weapon, due to the spike on its front and its slim profile at the front.
- You ask people missing an arm “do you need to re-arm?”
- You have written a story where a hand held UD8 – Kayser existed and the Freespace 2 ships emerged from subspace over Earth in the year 2005 because they had discovered time travel.

- You know the Colossus is capable of BFReds because it had them in the Colossus cut scene.

- Your USB drive is called Triton.
- Your portable hard drive is called Argo.
- Your remote control looks like a Hades or Lucifer.

Quote
In the mission Into the Maelstrom, there are 2 Elysium transports named Hauler 1 and Hauler 2. They have no purpose in the mission.

That's from the Wiki.  But if you hang around after the Collosus arrives they will move in and dock with the transports, then If I remember correctly, they will go to the Collosus.  Most of the time one of them gets splattered by asteroids though and this seems to mess up the orders for the second.

Yes.  Also, another time, I decided I wanted Alpha wing to survive and told them to ignore the Sathanas, unfortunately this made the Colossus do the same.  It's virtually impossible for the Sathanas to win that mission though.

Most likely.
What? I mean, if you've only got 1 wing in the area and you're trying to quickly give them the order not to attack the Sathanas, are you more likely to go C-2-1-6 or C-3-6? Theoretically they'd do the same thing (though of course, in reality they don't).

Go C-2-1-9 (or C-3-9)...I think.
Tell them to ditch. You should be able to handle a wing of Basilisks by yourself (at least I could on the lower difficulties).

I genuinely thought I was agreeing on the part that he hit C-3-6, which gave the CO of the Colossus the idea that they should just ignore the Sath and try to win it that way.

But I guess I wasn't.

Get total video converter or some other converter, download the AVI (Convert to GIF) or save the MVE file as GIF. I actually haven't made it, but I know it's possible.

As for the Colossus listening to you when you go C-3-6, that seems silly, since you can't usually order juggernaughts around. But I don't get the desertion thing, perhaps you followed the Sath to a waypoint too far away?

By the way Lobo, you do have plenty of time in High Noon before your wing gets remotely close to within range, so you might as well not be lazy   :nod:

- You rewrote an entire alternate campaign starting from "Mystery of the Trinity", because you got tired of losing the mission from holding the Shivans off for 15 minutes
- On one occasion, the Sathanas actually turned tail and ran when you began your attack run in "Bearbaiting".
- The last time you played "A Lion at the Door", the Shivans called off their invasion, shut down the Knossos, and refused to let you progress any further until you got a life.

Reminds me of a lesson I had once. The lecturer did the same thing, then he picked people to give him flags, and he picked me, when I was half asleep. He asked me to name him some flags, so my sleep-addled brain produced a few ... namely the ones I keep using, "stream","surface shields", "small only","huge" and "capital".

- When at first you almost type "free space" as "FreeSpace", then almost correct yourself wrongly by nearly typing in "freespace" before doing it correctly and typing "free space".

It happened to me as I typed this, and even now, I still feel like typing "freespace" or "FreeSpace". :nervous:

YOU MAKE a Freespace 2 mod for other games.

You've edited star wars frame by frame just to see the death star with an BFRED and a Mon Calamari with BF Green's.

You've "improved" Star Wars legendary, hyperdrive sequence by adding a subspace gate and replaced stars with a subspace corridor.

In fact, I occasionally do this (nonsensical but nonetheless FS-esque) running dialogue in my head:

"The train is approaching the designated coordinates. Ready the fusion drives and prepare for departure."
"Train is losing velocity in accordance to station. Arm missiles."
"Train has stopped. Doors will open in a moment. Prepare to engage afterburners."
"Doors opening. Go!"
"What is the ETA of the next bus? Engage full burners!"
"Oh ****! That's my capship! Full burn! FULL...BURN!"

When you automatically translate Commander Vincey's lament on the loss of the GTA Lucidity into...a refrigerator.

Quote from: Commander Vincey from Battle of the Wilderness
The destruction of the AWACS reveals a critical flaw. Though the AWACS improved our sensor capabilities, its vulnerability limits the potential of the craft in combat scenarios. On the other hand, your unit's failure to protect the AWACS indicates that more effective leadership may be required here.

Quote from: Myself
The leak in the refrigerator reveals a critical flaw. Though the refrigerator improved our storage capabilities, its obsolescence limits the potential of freezing on the field. On the other hand, your father's failure to check the obsolescence of the refrigerator indicates that better shopping sense may be required here.
