My bad. You need a VP file for the first campaign. Forgot to mention that one to you.

I think the link is up on the link Willy gave.

You no longer need to stick to the Achilles. Even more, you are ordered to go away from it to cover some bombers...

Nothing. I just find it funny the way the bad guys always come at him in ones and twos rather than 10 of them just jumping on him at the same time.

Most black belts will tell you that taking on multiple people is a losing battle unless they do that.

    Most martial arts movies are like that. Blade is a good example, during the end fight scene in the temple you can actually see people waiting for their turn to pounce on him when I don't think you're supposed to.

     Some movies, like some Jet Li one has him fighting multiple guys at one time, but more often than not if thieir attacks are simultaneous they're all from one direction rather than from front and back.

Indeed.

I'm going to go play FS2 in a bit so I'll make sure this gets tested as well as the campaign 2 missions I have slated for tonight.

:) When playtesting for certain occurances it's easier to playtest on very easy (or even invulnerable :)  )

Playtesting to see what happens if ship x gets destroyed often means that you can't play at your best. The problem with that is that as soon as x is dead all the ships attacking it turn on you and proceed to kick the crap out of you (which means you don't get to see if the mission debriefs actually worked.)

Anyway back to the subject at hand.

I found the edits made the mission much more playable. I was playing on Easy this time though but I managed to do reasonably well.

One small problem I found though is the way you've set up the arrival cues for Aries and Cancer wings. Since they only appear when the player gets within 2000m of the Fenris A clever player might try sending in the wings to damage the Fenris when it is unsupported.

Far better is to make the SEXP come true when any friendly comes into rande (or simply have them jump in alongside the Horizon).

(BTW I discovered this particular exploit not from the code but because I tried to fly out to 30,000m away and see what would happen in the mission.

Another problem associated with the way you've done it is that if you destroy the Horizon before either wing turn up you break the mission. The game won't proceed to the next part.

Admittedly this sort of problem shouldn't come up. With only one enemy ship on screen at the very start of the mission you could expect the player to fly straight at it. Be warned. Quite often players do things that completely surprise you :)

Still think you should cut the swearing. Not only is this a family forum and game but more importantly the use of asterisks completely screws up the speech synthesis :)

With those exceptions I pretty much enjoyed the mission. It could use a little more polishing but the mian mission is a lot more enjoyable than before :)

alright............i edited the mission........here are the links if you  wanna download it:
-the mission: http://www.geocities.com/willy_principal/fac1m1-willy_principal.zip
-the MODs: http://dynamic4.gamespy.com/~freespace/forums/attachment.php?s=&postid=539759
- new textures for the elysium (Big Earl's): http://www.geocities.com/willy_principal/bigearlstextures.zip

Note: what kind of details should i add to the mission... a background??? more traffic?(personally, i think it haves enough traffic)
2nd note: note how i cleaned and reorganized the events...it's a lot more easier to edit the mission now...
EDIT: links fixed..............
