Mwahaha. Now that's more like the kind of response I was expecting.

Just finished it...

What... the... heck... :wtf:

I thought a few missions could have been combined, but overall it was very well done.  There were a bunch of leads that didn't go anywhere, though.

Spoiler:
Like at the beginning when everyone attacked the fighters instead of the corvette.

And the player downloading comm buoy records that take 72 hours to de-filter, but we never hear anything more about that.

Why wasn't the Carthage sync'd along with everyone else?

What does the first mission have to do with the rest of the campaign?

And why, if the spaced-out Vasudans are living in a parallel society in another galaxy, did they show up in Betelgeuse right before the freighters delivered the cargo?

Furthermore, why did the cargo need to be delivered in the first place if the Persistence was working on it the whole time?

Spoiler:
1: There's a very good reason for this...

2: And this too.

3: It was.

4: A lot.

5: Good reason for this also.

6: Why indeed.

:drevil:

Suffice to say, the end of the campaign wasn't the end of the story.

Argh! the ending!!!1

i think you would have pissed more people off, but made it a better cliffhanger if you just ended the campaign right as you jumped into that last knossos.

one other thing is that Shivan Comm Nodes go boom when the "Core" or "Crystal" subsystems are destroyed.  and good obscure reference to the shivan manifesto when the one guy said "perhaps they're more than just comm-nodes

BTW Best usermade campaign I've ever played, one thing I hated was always being in the same position at the beginning of the last few missions, and that your loadout is always the same but magically reloads in every new mission.  Loved it being in real time though.

I'd have to agree there, but I think it was necessary to
Spoiler:
show what was on the other side of the Knossos. I'm planning to add a bit on the end of the current ending to make it a bit less abrupt.

Excellent campaign...
not Derelict neither WarZone forced me to stay in my computer
...i played the missions just to know more......i wanted to know more about what was happening......
But there are a lot of things that weren't answered...i hope you answer them in Sync 2 and 3...
Spoiler:
only one thing was answered in your campaign, what was Sync..............but there are a lot of misteries behind:
-Who are those vasudans that attacked us?
-Why is everyone wants to kill Alpha wing?
-What was in the records of the comm buoy that take 72 hours to de-filter?
-What happened to the Carthage
-What's the relation of the first mission with the rest of the campaign?

Spoiler:

If you look properly, you will see in the first mission a vasudan cruiser or destroyer, i don't remember. And at the last minute, the GTVA command ask you to jump into the node before the GTCv (arrrg i don't remember his name), so before jumping, the GTCv request to the vasudan cruisers some help but unfortunately he can't help.
Then after you have been lost in the unknown location, you will see the same cruisers from the first Mission IIRC, it was the GVCv or GVC Aikeh something like that.

So I'm asking myself, what the hell is he doing here ??


In others words, this campaign is very good. I've never been so confuse before HL².

The reason the Com thing that took 72 hours to filter was never mentioned again because the campaign is in real time and the mission's times didn't take more than 72 hours altogether.

Just finished it. Two thumbs way up. At least as good as Derelict, minus Derelict's FREDding errors.

One observation, though. I accidentally broke a mission by giving a guard order to Alpha 3. Whenever you need for a fighter the player can give orders to to go do something, use the clear-goals SEXP first, then the AI goal, so that the player can't break it, since player orders take precedence over any you give in the FREDding.

*Continues nitpicking best campaign ever*

in the mission where you...
Spoiler:

come through the knossos the Persistence thanks the Dashor for its assistance.  One problem. THERE IS NO DASHOR! Then in the next mission the dashor is destroyed. The dashor was seen defending the portal when (FS2 main campaign's) Alpha wing was there, so it couldn't have been destroyed at that time.  no Demon entered GTVA space before bearbaiting either.

Spoiler:
Yeah, I know about the Dahshor bug. That should be fixed now (re-download). And, well, about the Dahshor defending the portal... look at the mission E3M4 in Sync. Look at it very closely. ;)
