Played a bit more of Monster Hunter World and Dark Souls Remaster the past couple weeks and while I don't have the energy to throw at MHW as of late, it's still a great game to pick up for an hour and do a few hunts.

Stocking up to go back Trails of Cold Steel 1 & 2 'cause the publisher got the rights to the original Japanse voice acting following acquisition of the rights to the PS4 remasters (which in Japan were part of the marketing push for part 3, giving you an interrupted line of savegames all the way to concluding part 4).

I need to finish Trails in the Sky SC and 3 still (I'm in the final dungeon). Was that why XSEED was doing a few Cold Steel streams this week or last week?

Dunno about streams but they patched in the voice pack last week, along with some other extras, and the announcement was like 3 weeks ago - I was so over the moon at that point, as I really want to see the story concluded after the ending and epilogue(s) ToCS 2.

I assume the final dungeon of SC? - Yeah, that can feel a bit tedious esspecially when "oh, I should have brough him/her for this bit" (all party members that have "history" with the antagonist miniboss squad get a little pay-off in the respective encounter, the game however doesn't telegraph the order of encounters)

Trails in the Sky the 3rd maybe a long winded epilogue but its setting up a lot of stuff for the Crossbell-Arc (didn't release in the West, runs paralell to ToCS) and the Trails of Cold Steel in its side stories - however even without the set-up ToCS is really easy to get into as a starting point IMO as it much more carried by the essemble that is Class 7.

I've also been replaying Silent Threat: Reborn and decided to kick the difficulty back down to medium after Hellfire and the Wait were a lot of having to play in very particular ways that got a little tedious. Still a great mod!

I don't feel like I have enough to sink my teeth into yet for a post like the others are doing. I'm also somewhat puzzled, are you sending PMs to them, or do we have creative control here? I would expect you to give me some information, I respond to it, you tell me what happens next, then I respond to that, etc. But could you for instance give me some information, and I not only respond to it, but also decide what happens next? Is that allowed? Am I allowed to take control of the 1st CRF or anything else I want to?

I can send PMs if you like. But basically I want you to react to the things I throw at you. You can write other factions in your universe, but only as they relate to and interact with your player faction. For example, you won't be controlling tons of different fleets all across the galaxy, but you can write about how they joined with and assisted you. I can tell you what a detailed sensor analysis will reveal of the debris next if you like.

OOC: Great portrayal of Bosch there, very effective!

Cool, thanks! Actually I felt that I erred on the side of making him more amiable than he should have been. If I re-wrote it I'd make him more grim, but I'll leave it as is.  :D  But hey, it's tough to write for a character that someone else wrote years ago!  :v:  :p

Will keep the story moving later when I've given it thought. Can you give me a PM or something with a few hints? I'm not entirely sure where to go next. I just did what I'd do in real life, hand it over to Bosch, but it sort of cuts off that story arc... or does it?

No problem. I will say that Bosch might contact you once the message is decrypted.

Hey Assassin, should I wait on you to continue my plotline or did you want me to continue myself?

Everyone else, cool story writing! This is intriguing.  :nod:

You should continue, but feel free to ask me if you need anything clarified (i.e. about the stealth ships or the message).


I have the same question for my story. So i have to continue my story as well?
Because the last days i waited that the game master throws me into a new situation :D. Because i understand this game in this way so far  :)

You can PM me with plans of what your characters will do, and I will tell you what they will encounter if they do so, then you can write it up here.

-HNS Phuur-Nan Task Force, Coruc-Tel System-

The drones did nothing. For a while it seemed that they had not noticed or even cared that they were being hailed. Raonaid shot a glance at Ferdi, who shrugged his trademark what-else-did-you-expect shrug.

"Well, let's try something else. Shaked, can you scan them back?"

"Yes, Captain. It wouldn't be any better than the scans we got from the Vaygr, but as a form of reciprocal communication...."

"You catch my drift."

"It is worth a try. Scanning now. This will take some time."

"Boss?" asked the comms officer.

"Yeah?"

"Got a top priority transmission from the Admiral. Instruction is to play it right here, right now."

"Go ahead."

It was a voice-only transmission. "Follow the drones. Do not wait for the science team. After that, your orders are to do anything as you see fit until the next time we meet. Good luck."

Admiral Raltha Naabal was, to many in the fleet, a greater mystery than the three Hyperspace Cores combined. Many who have served under her command would swear up and down that she was capable of precognition. Before she entered the Navy she was just an unknown industrial university graduate. But as soon as she enrolled into the Academy, she proved to be a stunning genius. Too stunning, in fact. There were rumours of her preemptively walking into a disciplinary board meeting and convincing them to call off an investigation on her before it was even considered. Thus it was no surprise she was chosen to be a fleet command operator, and given all the necessary implants to directly connect her mind to a mothership-class vessel. Advancements in implant technology meant that she got to keep her striking white hair. The "Pale White Ghost," as called by her crew in whispers, was going to be the Fleet Command for the Pride of Hiigara, but of course, Karan S'jet insisted on leading the expedition, a fact Raltha herself predicted when she turned down the position. Still, she served as the fleet's second-in-command and was notorious of giving orders that don't make any sense until much later. As time went on, people learned to stop arguing and just go with her very precise instructions. If Karan was Sajuuk incarnate, Raltha would be her sage. An example, which Raonaid would not soon forget, was how the Admiral ordered the Phuur-Nan to move straight towards the "Lighthouse" of the Progenitor hulk before it was even identified as such. Then the Admiral ordered as thick a strikecraft screen to be put in place around three pairs of hulks, before the Movers even showed themselves. Without those instructions, they would probably have lost a lot more than a few strikecraft squadrons to the Movers.

Now I get it. She must have known about these drones when she sent the Phuur-Nan here, Raonaid thought. Now she wants us to follow them... and then do as I see fit? I thought she was going to be more precise.... Unless even she doesn't know.

Ferdi wiped the sweat off his forehead. "She never wished anyone good luck," he said.

"So she doesn't know everything," Raonaid said. "Wait. The drones aren't moving. Where should we follow them to-"

"Well, Boss, they are now," said the sensors officer. "Entering a tight formation, heading away from our probe.... They are entering hyperspace. Tracking now.... They are leaving for the middle of nowhere, Boss. What do we do?"

"We'll do as the Pale White Ghost says."

"Yes, Boss. Let's hope getting us killed isn't part of her plan."

"I reckon if she was sending us to our deaths, she would have said 'thank you' instead."

"Then we should consider ourselves lucky."

These might be multiple problems ... Knossos should give you a clean installation, so please follow the instructions from the following topic to give everyone more information to work with:

Blue Planet / Ship models disappearing when hyperspacing
« Last post by zvr on November 15, 2018, 04:52:24 pm »
Hello I really could use some help.

I have installed Freespace 2 GOG version and Blue Planet via Knossos app.
I've decided to give rebalanced FS2 campaign a try and every time I see hyperspacing ship - doesn't matter if it's mine or somebody else's - it's 3D model disappears. Also 3D weapon models in equipment selection menu are blank, they are not loading.
Same problem occurs in my Blue Planet campaign - it's especially visible in AoA intro when capital ships are hyperspacing. Models just disappear.

I've opened vanilla FS2 with MediaVPS and everything is working fine, 3D models are there.
I just have a problem with Blue Planet.

Is there any way to fix it? When I've played Blue Planet about a year ago everything was working fine.
This is the first time I see this problem. Should I simply reinstall Blue Planet completely or is there some workaround?

Any help would be really appreciated :)
