That Ursa pic needs Ride of the Valkyries as its soundtrack.  For that matter, a pic with actual Valkyries would work even better.  :p

To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

I'll post the mission later today. I don't actually have the mission on the PC I'm typing from at the moment.  (Although it's only one event and the code is in the SCP forum if anyone wants to play with it)

The current version of FRED won't work so you need to open the mission in notepad to change things :) I used the 12th October CVS build I think the bug has been fixed in the 13th October so you need a build from sometime between 9th and the 12th to make it work.

The problem with capships though is that they don't move much so they look kinda boring in comparison to the shoals of fighters. That's why I gave up on them after the Mentu.

Surprisingly no. The problem is that the game is running out of collision pairs and once you include the fact that there are 250+ helios bombs in the mission as well as all the laser bolts and the ships themselves the game decides it's had enough and the bombs fly straight through the sath.

I did manage to blow up a ravana by warping it in so that only 50 or so Ursas were close enough to target it and go after it simply by a fluke. The ravana lasted less than 30 seconds (The bomb flight time)

Anyway here's some more pics and the mission itself.

I agree the fourth one is the best-looking. Not to say that any of them aren't good-looking.

I also particularly like the fifth. Kinda always wanted to do something like that in a mission...

I especially like this one. It looks like the Moloch has a birthday balloon of Ursas: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/karajorma/Misc-Pics/MoreShoals02.jpg

Tried the Colossus but the game just crashed on me. Probably to do with me exceeding the limit for the maximum number of subsystems. The Fenris also crashed the game unless I rigged it so that I was looking at the ships as they were created (in which case I got 17-18 of them).

My best result was with the Mentu I got ~43 of them which I promptly sent up against the Shivans :D



Thing is that beams don't seem to work. Any chance of getting that string concatenate SEXP Goob? I really want to see a fleet of cruisers open up on the Sathanas :D

EDIT : Nevermind. Just realised that I may be able to do it using when-argument :)

Hadn't thought of that :) I'll try that next. For the meanwhile Here they are using beams!









They managed to kill the Sathanas in about 8 minutes :) Not bad for a ship armed with the SGreen! :D
