Re: A celebration of Freespace
Actually IIRC it has to do with the 3.6.10 beta vps.  They removed the -a,b,c (for instance capital01-01a would become just capital01-01).  I have gotten around the problem by using the 3.6.8 zeta MV_Textures in addition to the 3.6.10s.  I know this is generally considered a bad idea, but I hasn't caused *too* many problems for me, especially since I renamed it so that it was loaded before MV_Assets (so that assets overrides it).  All user-made ships have to be upgraded for compatibility with the 3.6.10s now though.

Re: A celebration of Freespace


The camera is a little to far away and the beams look bad. Oh well.
I love it when the squirt gun bites the dust.

Wow I like that perspective. Makes the Sath look a lot bigger than the squirtgun, even though they're around the same size.

Nah, I bet the unnecessary extra people got thrown out before they were sent in.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Yeah... the Collie had suffered damage to its fighter bays, after all. And they probably don't launch escape pods or anything from missile launchers.

:rolleyes:

If I was on the Colossus, and Mr. CO said "We're going to stay here to hold them off," I would be running around hysterically going "Nooo nooo let me out!"

Even if you got to an escape pod you'd die in the Shockwave.

Who said anything about an escape pod? I was going to hijack one of them shiny Perseus(es).

It still takes the Sath more than a few seconds to kill a Colossus. In that time, if you were near enough to the fighterbay, you could escape in a fighter or something.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Are you sure there was enough time to get to

Keep in mind that it was damaged...a hull breach would seriously prevent people from using it and, at least, crewmen already evacuated decks close to the fighterbay.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
They were able to launch a few Boanerges bombers (Delta wing IIRC). If they could do that, I see no reason why it couldn't handle launching a few other ships.

 
Re: A celebration of Freespace
Perhaps you need clearance to take off (i.e. will they 'open the gate' for you?). And to hijack a fighter, you have to be a pilot.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
It's obvious you would need clearance to take off. It's not Star Wars where you can just fly off with your favorite ship.

But they can't stop you from blasting the doors open.
