Phoenecia certainly dies more often in FSO than retail for me.  Must be some alteration to the guardian flag, the BFRed is so bloody powerful it kills the Phoenecia before the guardian flag activates.  It happened in Retail sometimes, but its much more frequent in FSO.

I've found the opposite.

The Phoencia usually died when I played that mission in retail FS2.  I haven't played it in FS2O yet.  I usually played on easy or medium(normal?).

Phonecia Lives Club. The Phonecia has to be 100% intact to gain admittance.  :D

[22:29] <sigtau> Hello, #hard-light?  I'm trying to tell a girl she looks really good for someone who doesn't exercise.  How do I word that non-offensively?

<batwota> wouldn’t that mean that it’s prepared to kiss your ass if you flank it :p
<batwota> wow

What made me blink?: Hmm... when I 1st died in "Into a Lion's Den" when I didn't listen to Snipes (poor me) wins.

Phoenicia died for me the 1st time I played the mission, but later times, it often survives at 3% or 1% hull integrity. BTW I'm a retailer, FS2Open crash club ftw!

Also installed OpenAL.

Thanks, I've never been welcomed before.

I forgot to mention, in Derelict, where you see the Volition Bravos, the wake up moment pretty much surprised me, thought I was gonna die.

That was my 2nd blink moment.

Hmm... two things come to mind, both from FS1.

When I first played "Paving the Way", I jumped out early-- at the same time the Galatea was warping out, but a few seconds before it fully entered subspace.  It made for a pretty cool scene, with the big warship entering the portal in the background.  Then I got to the debriefing and Admiral Shima's screaming at me... "The Galatea was destroyed, and YOU are to blame!"  After briefly wondering how 2 Shivan bombers could unload 18 Harbingers in 3 seconds on an Orion traveling 450 m/s, I decided to just avoid the situation entirely in the future...

Later I was replaying the main campaign on Easy, and on the mission with the shield prototypes (Hammer and the Anvil?) I decided to take a few early shots at one of the then-friendly HoL fighters before it went hostile.  After five shots all the green dots on my radar turned red, Alpha 3 shouted something about treason, and I learned the fun way what Traitor Mode was.
"Uh, yeah, I mean it's tough to say, woulda-coulda-shoulda, ifs and buts like candy and nuts, you know, you never know.  This, that, and the other thing.  Who knows?  You know, there are a lot of what-ifs.  You know, my whole life is a lot of what-ifs."

The Shivan (and Terran) mind works in strange ways...

That's my favorite too. That wierd dream sequence freaky stuff is just about the coolest thing I've encountered in FS so far.

  • I might be the last man on earth to use TS3.2
mine was and still is not so much a blink but a cringe when realizing that all my wingmen are dead and i'm stuck with with nothing but those freakin shivan dragons while flying a herc 2. those [email protected] can dance circles around you. uggghh....talk about fighting for your life. especially the first time i ever saw those things in FS1
they were bad then but i do think in FS2 volition introduced shivan dragon pilots to crack.
