holy mary mother of god.....
okay, im going to sound like a total noob, i know...but i just played Inferno for the first time ever today.....


If there was ever going to be a mod that comes close to being Freespace 3, this is it.

In freespace 2, everything was bigger, badder, meaner, and had a greater sense of intensity and dramaticism to it.

Inferno does all this to Freespace 2. Its just....unbelieveable......breathtaking.....

To the Inferno team. Congratulations.


I think you guys have a right to rename 'Inferno' to Freespace 3.

Re: holy mary mother of god.....
No, we haven't got that right and even if we'd have it, we wouldn't do that. I partially understand you as my first reaction on entering techroom was also jawdropstofloor. :p However after several days of looking at it you'll discover that Inferno isn't even close to being FS3. Primary power of FS universe was, is and always will be plot and climate. Inferno lacks of it. It also lacks of realism (if you take a look at capital ships, you'll notice that all of them are more or less Anti-Cap :p ).
If in your opinion there's no difference beetwen "Master Game" and "Game Master", I can only feel for you.

Re: holy mary mother of god.....
Inferno has always been the FS2 mod closest in spirit to FS2, and thus makes really the best sequel. Hence why most people react to it by dubbing it FS3.

meh to them I say. Inferno just blew me away.....LITERALLY ! *Flew into the line of fire of an enemy capships main cannons while trying to knock out its guns  :blah: *


Well, as far as introducing new stuff goes, Inferno is the best mod / campaign ever.

As far as plot and mood goes, there are others out there that surpass it (Transcend, Sync)

Re: holy mary mother of god.....
Well campaigns like Steadfast have plenties of messages and elaborated plot. There are many INFR1 campaigns developing that may satisfy you once they're completed...there also is DH's Dreamcatcher...


I think that Inferno is essentially a "pure mod". There are campaigns released with INF packages, but it's all up to fans creating INF campaigns that...have what more "official" INF campaigns do not have. There's something in the works...soon you'll change your opinion about INF campaigns plot!

Ugh. I got 64% in my English. :mad:

I agree with you. I personally liked the FS1 feel much better than the FS2 feel because it was eerie. Inf had a different feel. It was much more like FS2 with the sound effects especially. The mod pack wasn't that great either, too. If you see closely, you can actually find loads of errors in most of the models. IMO, Inferno's modpack was good mixed in with the bad. And same for INFSCP. Some of the Shivan Fighters, the Pakhet and the Danaus make me frown. :ick:

But there are loads of great stuff in there like the new Nemesis, updated Lucifer, Megaera, Amritaya (by the looks of it), and of course the Bellerophon.

if there is any consistancy with the Shivans, it's their lack of consistancy - -Norbert-

No, the Bellerophon has not been released...

Whats that ? (Forgive my noobishness)

 
Re: holy mary mother of god.....
Inferno was the first mod for FS2 that I ever played.  For the longest while I refused to play anything outside of the Inferno universe, but there are a ton of cool mods out there.

None released yet to compare with the extensiveness of INF though :)

Fighting against the nemesis above earth sure is cool.

But it's woefully out of date. There are all kinds of alpha issues when i play inferno with the latest mediavps.

It's a campaign of which I wrote the plot before summer. I planned to make it use only INFR1 files, and it was made by me and Admiral Edivad. Then, due to my FREDing ineptitude, progress slowed a lot. Also, I thought that if nowadays an aircraft carrier is planned to remain on service for 50 years, the GTVA can't replace all his ships in 30 years, so we added many FS2, FS1 and user-made ships. Then LieutenantGeneralMobius joined the team, the campaign re-gained momentum and in Episode 1 the number of mission increased from 7 to 25.

Be ready to DL about 3 mb per mission!
Corrected in the quote :P

Seriously... the first mission, quite simple, is 123 kbs :blah: Imagine how will be big the complex missions! And you'll need to have INFR1, INF:A and LS's nebulae :P

Re: holy mary mother of god.....
Mission 2 and 3 are over 130kb. And mission 1 is going to have more messages.
