Doesn't Turey's installer work on Linux? I have a link in my siggy, if you want, toobooku, you can use that to install the FS:SCP. (Which I would recommend
). That way, you're all set to play FS1, and then you can play Silent Threat, and then FS2, and then Derelict, and then ... IIRC, you don't have to tell the Installer to install everything, just tell it to get FS2 & FS1 & the cutscenes... you can then run the installer again later, to update & install more mods.
Commence plasma core insertion... Gunnery Control, target toobooku... sensor lock acquired, open fire!
...wait, you've already got the welcome beam. Okay, then the speech. I'll torture you with "the speech"
Welcome to the the HLP BB. Exits are to the sides and rear. Don't plan on using them though, someone let the hosted projects put all their stuff in there so they're all but inaccessible. In the event of an emergency, flamethrowers are stowed under your seat but since we've been out of napalm since late '01 you'll have to use it as a cudgel. There are pulse rifles and assorted heavy weapons in the lockers up front; these can be opened only by admins, a
- god, or a hyper intelligent shade of the color blue. These weapons are reserved for the Apocalypse, bad April Fools jokes, and the mention of eF eS thr33, in that order, so don't get your hopes up about using them. In the event of a water landing, your seat cushion can be used as a floatation device, and you'll find a week's supply of Bosch Beer hidden inside. There's a 95% probability that the beer isn't actually beer, and no one is really sure why you'd need a flotation device in deep space, but hopefully these will provide some small comfort.
Feel free to get acquainted with the place while you're here, and do be careful when exploring the ventilation systems. If you encounter a large 5-limbed creature, don't panic. Just set down your lunch and back away very slowly. If you're lucky it will just be Carl, our resident shivan, who responds quite well to bribes of food. If it's not Carl, and it's in a good mood, at least your death should be quick and painless. If you're particularly unlucky though you might get dragged into a religion or politics thread, in which case may God have mercy on your soul. Stay clear of trouble, and you'll be fine.
Enjoy your stay!
