I'd like to spend a question to ask: Of a primary objective, secondary objective, or bonus objective, which of them is the ship's survival as a goal?

I'd like to spend a question to ask: Of a primary objective, secondary objective, or bonus objective, which of them is the ship's survival as a goal?

Technically I should probably reject this and require it be asked as "Is the ship's survival a primary objective?"

I will answer it as precisely as I can:

The ship is not listed in any of the mission's objectives.

However, because mission objectives do not determine whether or not you can proceed in the campaign, see

Quote
[losing the ship] is a partial and/or total fail condition.

That's an interesting question. I said earlier that the answer is retail only. That is true: the answer is only related to retail.

However, I think it is important to note that they do appear, in a sense, in a post-Capella mod. This gets into some funny hair-splitting ontology, so I'm trying to respond in the way that gives the most information.

The answer has nothing to do with General Battuta.

The answer is retail only, but appears, in a sense, in a post-Capella mod. (It's hard to explain this with yes/no). They almost certainly flew a fighter.

The answer is NOT a character from the FS2 campaign. They do NOT appear in a cutscene. They do NOT have a speaking role, and they do NOT appear exclusively in a multiplayer campaign.

They are not the dead Herc pilot from the FS2 intro, and they are not Esmar al'Faddil.

The answer has a name. The answer is mentioned in a document in the techroom.

The answer is a human person who's kinda cute in my opinion.

My question was actually kind of stupid and useless, since basically everything that appears in FS2 also appears in some non-canon story.

Summary - The campaign is set on the Freespace timeline but not post capella and doesn't use the Freespace Port. So likely in or not long before Freespace 2.

It is not a hosted project.

It is not incorporated into the canon of Blue Planet.

Silent player protagonist.

Greater than 9 missions in length.

Was released in either 2009, 2011, 2013 or 2015

Is the answer an organization of human beings, whether a pair of friends or a government?

I phrased this badly, since it's easy to see that as something physically real - is the answer a concept, idea, or emotion? Like "the GTVA" in the abstract, or 'love', or whatever?

To recap: It exists as matter in the universe we live in, specifically software. It does not exist in the FS universe. It is FS related. It is not HLP or another website. It is a part of a mod, which may or may not be a TC, though unlikely for it to be a TC, but not a specific mod. It's not FRED, and it's SUPER sexy.

I'm thinking about the code itself or the text in mission notepad files but it's just not adding up right in my mind with the answers we've been given and I don't want to pull the trigger and get it wrong when I'm not sure and someone else might figure it out.

If that's what you mean, than yes, it is a single named ship (such as GTD Galatea). But since I already answered that its not the only ship in its class, but rather a part of a class that features a lot of ships, it might help a bit.

And it cannot be destroyed by every weapon, 8.

I would guess the GTI Melia (the Sol Gate), but that's one of a kind (and it turns out it has a fighterbay).

Looking through the INFR1 missions, the only candidate appears to be:

A Vasudan non-combat ship, bigger than an escape pod, that appears in a nebula mission in FS2, and doesn't blow up.

Well, the Anuket never appears in a nebula mission, but a Setekh does: the GVA Junit in The Fog of War.  And IIRC the Junit always escapes the area unscathed.

Given that it's not a single named ship, "GVA Junit" is not the answer.  Is it the GVA Setekh?

You're close enough that I'll take it.  ST:R's Talus accelerator complex, based on a reference in the Helios bomb's tech description.  There's the reason I couldn't outright say it was canon.

You guys decide who's next.
Title: Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Post by: Goober5000 on August 14, 2016, 05:54:22 pm
Ah, well, ST:R isn't canon, strictly speaking.  It does appear in the original Silent Threat campaign, but ST calls it a mining facility while ST:R calls it a particle accelerator complex.  The Helios description only says "particle accelerator complex near Antares".  It's a happy coincidence that ST:R's Talus would fit that description. :)

EDIT: Oh, I see what you did there.  "It's referred to in canon sources." (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=92368.msg1826317#msg1826317)  Tricky.

Ooh.  I thought it might be Captain Forsythe of the GTCv Warspite, but she's female.  (Or, at least, the comm officer is, which raises a good point...)

Is this person explicitly named, by himself or by another?  E.g., does he say, "This is X" or does someone say, "X, tell me about Vasudans", where X is the person's name rather than the ship name.

I ask because although we know that Forsythe is the captain of the Warspite, we don't know if the Warspite speaker is the captain.  Similarly, there have been in-mission messages from the Bastion not sent by Admiral Shima and in-mission messages from the Aquitaine not sent by Admiral Petrarch.  But there have been in-mission messages from the Galatea sent by Admiral Wolf.

(EDIT: Well, the captain of the Warspite is male, according to the debriefing, so he's not the one speaking.)

:confused:  An engine feature... that's mentioned in the techroom? Isn't that a bit meta?
I know, I would also be confused if I wouldn't know the answer... But yeah, it is both in the game engine and mentioned once in the Techroom.

Does it play a major role in the final mission against the Lucifer?
I don't want to say this... But no. :P
However, it is important for the mission to take place.
11.

To recall: a sexy, canonical and non-material... thing. Not mentioned in briefings and debriefings, but once in a document in the Intelligence section of Techroom. It is neither a historical event or political construct. However, it is featured in the game engine. It does not play a major role in the final mission against the Lucifer, but... it is related to the mission and also pretty important.

And I've never seen a sexy historical event/political construct...  :wtf:

Jumps are mentioned more than once in the Techroom
Jump nodes are mentioned multiple times; jumps themselves are mentioned only in the "Subspace" entry.

But the reason I asked about subspace jumps is because there's nothing else mentioned in the intelligence section of the tech room in either FS1 or FS2 that I would classify as an engine feature (unless we get really general and go with "weapons", but I'm pretty sure weapons would count as "material" anyway).

Colonol Dekker, a correction:

I don't want to say this... But no. :P
However, it is important for the mission to take place.

AdmiralRalwood, I was literal saying that *it* was mentioned only once. Jumps are mentioned multiple times in "Subspace" entry :P And since this entry is inside Intelligence section of Techroom, jumps are mentioned at least a couple of times in the Intelligence section. Well, got that a bit messed up.

Ahh, (My next Answer would have been Weapon Shockwaves) I thought about it, and they did actually meet up with the given criteria. . .They may be mentioned In more then one techroom page however.

For when you wake up: Is It the subspace entry/exit warp effect?
Title: Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Post by: -Joshua- on August 17, 2016, 04:11:42 pm
Is it shields?

It's only mentioned once in the intelligence things, it's definitely an engine feature. They *don't* work in subspace, which is vital as otherwise the final mission of FS1 could not take place to begin with, and they are related to subspace as evidenced by them not working whilst being in subspace.

They are also sexy :p (http://cliojournal.wikispaces.com/file/view/Hoplite_3_c.500_BC.jpg/245911591/Hoplite_3_c.500_BC.jpg)

However, I do think that they are mentioned in the FS1 briefings ocasionally but I'm banking on you not fully remembering everything (and heck, I don't either).
Title: Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Post by: AdmiralRalwood on August 17, 2016, 04:47:37 pm
Is it subspace itself?
How is "subspace itself" an engine feature? Also, it would be very hard to argue that it doesn't play a major role in Good Luck. It's also mentioned way more than once in the intelligence section of the techroom.

Is it the subspace skybox?
:wtf:

Again:
It does not play a major role in the final mission against the Lucifer
(Not to mention that the skybox is never mentioned in the tech room.)

(My next Answer would have been Weapon Shockwaves) I thought about it, and they did actually meet up with the given criteria. . .They may be mentioned In more then one techroom page however.
They are not mentioned in the Intelligence section of the techroom at all.

Is it shields?

It's only mentioned once in the intelligence things
If by "once" you mean "three times", then yes.

EDIT: Is it the rendering of subspace nodes by the HUD as a green sphere?

My reasoning was that it is an engine feature that you could set a flag in FRED to make the mission take place in subspace.  And although the mission takes place in subspace and the shields are disabled by subspace (thus making it important), it doesn't otherwise affect the balance or gameplay.

As for how many times it's in the tech room, well, it's mentioned several times in briefings too.  I thought MitoPL might have been referring to the phenomenon of subspace, rather than the fact that subspace jumps, nodes etc. are common.

But in summary, yes, that probably qualified as an unnecessary question on my part. :p

Post by: MitoPL on August 18, 2016, 12:30:20 pm
For when you wake up: Is It the subspace entry/exit warp effect?
Well, that's close enough - it was the subspace vortex created with a subspace drive. It has its own effect in the engine, so...
-It is pretty cool, especially in latest Nightly FSO builds,
-canonical as much as spaceflight, also non-material,
-Mentioned only once in "Subspace" Intelligence entry, and never in mission briefings and debriefings,
-Without it nobody could enter subspace, thus it is pretty important in the Lucifer assault :P.
So it is both a game visual/audio effect, and a canonical phenomena needed to use even the most basic subspace drives.
Quote from: Freespace Subspace Tech Entry
A jump drive causes a ship to vibrate in multiple dimensions until its modulations are in perfect synchronization with the subspace continuum. A vortex opens, creating an aperture from an infinitesimally small point in the cosmos, enabling the vessel to cross the subspace threshold.
I am actually a bit suprised that nobody asked if it apperas or is mentioned in any missions.
Is it shields?
[...]
However, I do think that they are mentioned in the FS1 briefings ocasionally but I'm banking on you not fully remembering everything (and heck, I don't either).
At least several times: after the first player's encounter with the Shivans, after developing our own shields, after first sighting of the Lucy, and before Good Luck, I think.

So, well, I got this a bit complicated, but well: you often don't notice things that are directly in front of your nose :P

Well, anything can be a weapon If you use It wrongly/Irresponsibly enough :P

That leaves us only the Ships Database section of the Techroom (unless you actually count Mission Simulator).

So... Is the event related to the Typhon destroyer?

I actually had that Idea, but did not post because 1: I did not want to rob anyone of the last question, and 2: I figured that If I was SOMEHOW right, It wouldn't matter sense I already played and someone else would get It wrong/right. . .

But there's no way I can prove this anyway so. . . Eeh, Meh, :lol: Besides, the game was at It's slowest when I was playing. hahaha.

There are about 10 Cains in FS2 that appear in only one mission. Didn't count the ones from FS1. We need to think: what is so special about that one particular Cain?

I thought it might be the SC / SD Tantalus, but it is not a Cain :P

Also... I don't want to use up any questions, but does somebody remember any Cains from multiplayer missions? They're also canon, I suppose.

Summary:

It's canon.

It's a group or faction etc, but not a squadron or company.

It has nothing to do with the Shivans.

They're armed.

They're Terran.

They're not exclusive to the techroom.

They are in FS2 and more.

They are not antagonists. Canonically, which may suggest they are outside of canon. I wonder if they could become antagonists in the game.

It isn't the GTVA or the Terran race.

Hmmm... are Pirates the answer?

They are canon (ST Cloak and Dagger).
They could be described as a group.
They have nothing to do with Shivans.
They are armed with high tech ships and weapons.
They could very well be Terran.
They do not appear in the techroom IIRC.
They are not antagonists but you do fight against them.
They are not connected with the GTVA.

If I am wrong, I give up, nothing else falls on my mind.

No.

0 questions left.

I actually thought Lorric would get it by question 10 or 7. It was the Luyten New Alliance.

I had to answer to the question "Is it in FS2?" in the most literal sense. Yes, it is in there, in the game, as historical record. It isn't canonically antagonistic, but there's a fan campaign where it is. It isn't made of matter (It's an alliance, a government, an institution), it is Terran but not "a group within the GTVA" (this is where I got most doubts... AFAICT, the LNA was dissolved when the GTVA was established, but it is somewhat arguable that there was a timeframe where the two existed at the same time. The present tense of the question adds to the problem. Nevertheless I had to respond something, and the LNA wasn't definitely part of the GTVA when it formed - feel free to argue with me on this one).

Bad idea. No one will want to ask the early questions, running down their limit and becoming unable to get the answer even if they know it.

If you mean in one post, well I'd just have gone through them one by one otherwise.

Limit # of questions "in a row" without someone else asking.
Why?

It's not as if these games are in short supply, but sometimes questioners are.

If there's more than one person wanting to ask questions, it will just happen naturally.
Title: Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Post by: Axem on August 26, 2016, 02:36:34 pm
I think the fact that this game has averaged more than a page a day means there is no shortage of questioners.

While there were no rules attached to the initial post, I think it would be kind and polite if eager questioners could slow down a bit and let it be more a game of '1 vs. the community' rather than '1 vs. a few really active players'. Just a suggestion anyway. :nod:
Title: Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Post by: Lorric on August 26, 2016, 02:47:15 pm
Maybe there could be two threads and you can't participate in both at the same time. Unless you're answering in one and asking in the other. But I still think no interference is optimal.

If I'm the one answering the questions I don't want the flow to be slowed down. I'm only going to be around so often, so ideally the questions come thick and fast while I'm around to answer them.

There was one point where I made about 4 or 5 posts in a row to ask questions but someone got in first between me posting and hitting post, so I had to wait and see what the answer to their question was and discard my post. Sure it was frustrating in the moment after it happened the third time in a row, but I found it more amusing than anything overall. It's happened plenty of times singly. I don't think there should be any limits. There'll be times when several are eager to post and times when you're the only one around interested in playing. Just let it flow naturally.

Frankly, I understand the point that others are making. I think rules are not needed, but you shouldn't abuse the 20 questions rules like that, Lorric. It's a bit annoying for the rest of them who want to play too. So.... tame it down a bit?

I would bet on the second-in-command of the Orestes (who takes over the command after Adm. Bei's departure) or someone from the UEFg Katana in TBI... but both are related to a military organisation - GTVA or UEF.

But I might have a clue. Was he captured by GTVA?

An admiral :no:



He was not captured by the GTVA

One question remains...............
Title: Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Post by: MitoPL on August 30, 2016, 01:45:17 pm
Oh, right. Morian is his name.

So, well, we would have many options, but the part with "not related to an organisation" is shrinking the possibilities a lot. Noone from GTVA, not Ken, no HoL operative, not a Gef. I was thinking some Tev/Fed command crew or Martin Mandho, but they are all related to some organisation. That leaves us with someone independent and rather not important for BP story. I was thinking this (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=76120.0), but these three were captured by GTVA... And both Granite Hunter and Truth are not unrelated to an organisation.

Have we got any named civilians being a bridge crew in BP? (Not a question to you, Dekker)

I can't tell if that's a red herring or not. Ships and weapons have been explicitly ruled out, as have nebulae and the various background images; jump nodes aren't material; asteroids, debris, sentries/cargo/installations/etc, and subsystems can be interacted with (eg. destroyed or scanned); waypoints are neither material nor in-universe... hm. Shield systems can definitely be interacted with, Command is person...

Oooookay yeah screw it I'll throw out the generic yes/nos and give specifics. It's canon, made of matter, and a solid object, but in our universe, the one we live in, not the FS universe.

There you go. That should make it possible now.

So it can't be BGreen, TerSlash (standard), BFGreen (Endgame) or LRBGreen (High Noon) then.

Post by: NGTM-1R on November 06, 2016, 11:44:47 pm
It's already been said it can't be found on the Colossus.

It hasn't been asked whether that means "standard loadout" or "tweaked in FRED"; Droid just assumed that nonstandard loadouts were included. We've eliminated the standard loadout of the Orion so it's not a BGreen or TerSlash. We've eliminated the Green Beam. We've eliminated the LTerSlash. We've eliminated the SGreen. And we've literally run out of other canonical green-colored beams to ask aside from those on nonstandard Colossus loadouts.

Seriously, go look at the wiki. TerSlash, Green Beam, LTerSlash, BFGreen, LRBGReen, BGreen, SGreen. That's it.

Post by: MitoPL on November 18, 2016, 11:25:02 am
It's both material and canon. A Terran ship that can explode (like every one...),  and it rather didn't fight Shivans. Not a destroyer or a cruiser and does not appear in any FS2 or FS1 mission. Mobile (so not an installation). Did not go down after Coloccus was torn apart. It's a combatant though and it doesn't fire any beams or flak. Doesn't appear in a retail mission.

This basically eliminates any FS2 Terran ship bigger than a fighter (flak is really common among these, unless you consider "doesn't fire flak" as "doesn't fire any flak that player witnesses).

I say it has to be related to FS1 (T-V war), Silent Threat or Operation Templar. Is the vessel mentioned anywhere in FS1?

I...I may have misled you somewhere on the previous page. You're on the right track, but not quite there yet (Nerdo's questions).

You can't exactly use it yet. It's seen once, though.

That was me saying 'Not the Archer' the long way.

Post by: X3N0-Life-Form on November 23, 2016, 02:59:30 pm
Alright, let's see :
- It's player allowed
- It's really good
- It's a primary weapon
- It's apparently a BP-Federation weapon
- It uses ammo
This narrows it down to only 5 weapons, if I'm not mistaken.

- Per your last post, it hasn't been used by the player yet
This only leaves the two bomber primaries.

- It has only been seen once
We've seen a number of Durga bombers, so the Redeemer has seen plenty of action.
On the other hand, we've seen the Vajradhara once, during "Icarus", and although its main weapon isn't used during the cutscene, it is - as far as I know, its only appearance in BP so far.

So ---> is it the Vajra ?

Isn't it fired at the Hecate in Tenebra's final cinematic? I only realized my mistake after remembering you can only use it in 'Kentauroi race'.

Title: Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Post by: X3N0-Life-Form on December 07, 2016, 11:01:06 am
Alright, lets sum it up :

- Not made of matter
- Not canon (note : could mean not-in-retail, could mean too abstract to be canon)
- Of human origin (note : we, as players, count as terrans)
- Not comedy-based
- Not an engine feature
- Not an organisation
- Predates Capella (assuming = FS2 era)
- Exists in BP
- Not present in most campaign
- Not a squadron
- Sort of related to technology
- In a way, it's a game asset
(- You know it when you see it)


"Not made of matter" implies something rather abstract.

"Not canon", "predates Capella (hell yeah)" and "we count as terrans too for the purposes of the answer" suggests it could have some relation to real life.

"Not present in most campaigns", "exists in BP" give us some ways to narrow things down a bit.

"Not an engine feature" but "sort of related to technology" yet is "a game asset, in a way" is a rather confusing set of restrictions.


Let's put aside the game asset bit for now, the fact that it's not an engine feature excludes most modder wizardy & related assets present in BP but absent from most campaigns (fiction pieces, techroom entries, scripting, table values, ...).

"Speaking protagonist" is a nice fit : it's a story telling tool that we are all familiar with, so not an engine feature, has no relation to Freespace canon, is present in BP but not in a number of other campaigns (including retail) and I guess you could consider it a game asset. However, it has no relation to technology and is too abstract to be visual.

"Voice acting" seems better : you need recording tools, so it has some relation to tech without being a strict engine feature and you can see/hear it.

We don't have a lot of questions left (and I could be going in completely the wrong way :)), so I won't take that particular shot just yet.


So, knowing it is not canon, is it still present in retail FS2 ?

Hrm. A beam-less explodey thing that moves under its own power and has more than one person in it, but you don't drive it in any released campaigns and nor is it in BP. I'm guessing reconstruction or T-V war, since it's not retail canon either.

It's definitely a named character, yes.

I'm leaning towards someone mentioned in a (de)briefing that's not a pilot (otherwise surely they'd have had lines in mission) and not on a warships command crew. They don't deliver the brief/debrief so .. hmm... do I want to read all the (de)briefs on the wiki to see if anyone jumps out?

I would have gone with Laporte's dad (I think he was a pilot), but I'd rather check the de/briefings & fiction notes first, I'm not sure he is actually named.

I'll take a shot: Navahas squadron leader - Captain Telfer.
Title: Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Post by: xenocartographer on March 10, 2017, 07:25:24 am
It's not Telfer, since he gives you your briefings in act 1. Laporte's dad is dead.
Title: Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Post by: X3N0-Life-Form on March 10, 2017, 08:41:20 am
Right, missed that :
Are they canonically dead by the end of Tenebra?
That's a negatory. 10 questions remain.
Title: Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Post by: xenocartographer on March 10, 2017, 10:10:36 am
Right, the character isn't dead, so it can't be Laporte's dad.

Uhhhh...
Did you take "in mission" as with or without briefings, debriefings ect.? I feel kinda silly now that I forgot to say it more precisely...
I interpreted it as without briefings/debriefings (so during actual gameplay).
I can't really remember any instance where Telfer spoke anything in-flight...

I missed this earlier, but no, it's not Knight 2.

As others have already pointed out, it's not Telfer or Laporte's dad. Anybody else have a guess? There's still 2 questions left, by my count.

Yyyyyyyyyyyeah, my wording wasn't the best there. I meant it as a "d'oh" thing. I wasn't being critical. On a scale from one to ten, how much were you giggling when we thought it was someone really obscure?

If no one objects, I'll start us up again.

Well, it can't be - since we already know that it isn't physical...

Does it predate Age of Aquarius events (as in "our" universe, not the other one)?

Good point; I'll give the question back because it's generally my policy not to waste official questions on things that have already been answered by something else.

I don't think this question has a meaningful answer.

Er... I suppose you could look at it that way? Still, I think the most reasonable answer would be "no". 12.

Post by: xenocartographer on April 24, 2017, 01:56:26 pm
So, to my knowledge, we've ruled out Nagari and the Dreamscape (both mentioned in Morrigan in Shadow), Ubuntu (very definitely a philosophy), and the Fedayeen (debatably a philosophy, debatably omniscient, but very definitely an organization). I don't think the Summed Psyche was mentioned explicitly in UT1 and CASSANDRA may or may not qualify as physical. No questions, just speculating.
Title: Re: Twenty quuuuuuestions!!!
Post by: Abaddon on April 24, 2017, 03:19:10 pm
As a computer network, I would probably call CASSANDRA physical. Summed Psyche is tempting, though... I had my mind set on Nagari until the Morrigan answer.

Post by: Abaddon on April 26, 2017, 08:33:25 pm
Well, along that thread... is it related to the origin/standing of the Shivans and Vishnans?
(although this wouldn't confirm Summed Psyche... it could be the Grand Design or whatever their plan was called).
