Darius, who did Joshua 2?
What kind of a question is that? He did.

Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
Well, this sounds like it may rival derelict. i'll have to try this ASAP, meaning monday or tuesday (damn family functions)

 
Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
This was one of the best campaigns I have ever played.:jaw:
The end seems to be what started Inferno. ;7
Make a sequel!

Spoiler:
Yeah if you put both campaigns in the same "universe" it would definitely alter your perspective of the Inferno campaign. Might also explain why the Vasudans where against the GTVA-Earth Alliance War in the beginning and how that one rogue Vasudan Admiral would ally with the EA. Mindf**k.  :eek:

Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
Well I don't think I spoiled anything considering a person who hasn't played Blue Planet won't understand what I'm talking about. I mean my post could be interpreted in several ways. In any case I spoiler tagged it. Sorry if I somehow revealed the ending.

Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
Okay, so I just downloaded it, found the primaries don't fire, and since I'm a complete newb at editing ANYTHING FS related... How do I get them to work?  They make noise, but I can't see them.  I need to see them to lead my shots right, it's just kind of a thing...  I didn't see any fixes in the thread, so I'm going to reread it to make sure...

Timely help would be much appreciated.  :yes:

Edited to add: Also, does anyone have a current link for Lightspeed's Nebula pack? Searching here and google leads me to a lot of dead links or nothing.

I can bet my PC that you don't have the mediavps . Primaries work only if you have the mv_effects.vp . Also , the campaign might crash at one point if you don't have the mediavps or the patch . Sorry , I don't know where to get them . I found the mv_effects on one link though , I forgot where .

I have the original mv_effects.vp from the other data folder where I have Freespace2 and FSOpen installed... I put it in a mediavps folder in the folder for blueplanet, but I haven't gotten a chance to fire them.  I was working to see if I could get the nebulae working, but I don't know if there are supposed to be any in the opening cutscene.

Unless I need a different mv_effects.vp, it should work now, right?

Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
downloaded the stuff from the link... trying it now... will edit with results...

Edit: Okay, put them in the main mediavps folder, still  no glowy blobs of death.  Going to try them in the local mediavps folder I created in the blueplant1 folder.  will re-edit.

Edit2: Still nothing... Why won't it work?  :(  I want to play this so bad, just based on the comments from other players... and the

Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
And in which one of them is the HTL Leviathan ( not the Fenris ) and the HTL Cain ( not Lilith ) ? I don't see them listed .

And I got the mv_effects.vp from there .  :nod:

JoshuaII is for download on Darius' 'Blue Planet' website .

EDIT: To Terashell : ShadowGorrath to the rescue ! The nubulae effects seem to be in a larger file . I am looking for the link right now . Once you download them , extract them all into mediavps/data/effects , and the tbl files into mediavps/data/tables . The mv_effects must be extracted to the mediavps folder itself . The mediavps folder has to be in the main FS2 directory . Now you have to make mod.ini in the BluePlanet folder ( in which there is the blue planet vp file ) . The mod.ini should look like this :

Code: [Select]
[launcher]
modname      = Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius;

[multimod]
secondrylist = mediavps;

That is all .

P.S. I have the whole soundtrack in mp3  :D

Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
Spoiler:
Yeah, I didn't really like the ending. Why on Earth would they start a war when they weren't even sure they would need to? For all they knew, Sol might have been willing to peacefully join up with the GTVA. That was a really, really strange ending. I'm not saying bad, on account  of the possibility of a deeper reason to the way unknown to me. Overall, though, it was a really great game.:yes:.

They did it because BETAC had ordered that , and Earth wouldn't have been hostile to them - after all , according to the debriefing , people on Sol reached a new level

To Terashell: read my previous post .

Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
No prob . By the way , do you have the patch ? You will need it if you don't want to experience a crash on one of the missions ( the patch vp has to go into the blue planet folder ) .

Re: RELEASE - Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
I'll get the patch, but I have another question now...
Spoiler:
In the mission where you have to board the Duke, I can't get Alt-A to eject me like it says.  I'm practically sitting on the hull, hell, if I pull up I collide with it...  Do I need the patch for that to work as well?

I think you have to be near the ship , but not too close . Then press the keys at the same time to board the Duke . But maybe a simple mission reload would do the trick . And I don't think the patch has anything to do with that mission

Restarted the mission twice, rebooted the game twice.  It's the only control that won't work.  I've tried from 0 to 4300 away and nothing's working.  I don't know... there's not even an "eject" keybind option in the options screen.  I don't know what to do and I want to keep going, this game has a serious WTFISGOINGON!!??!? factor that I'm enjoying immensely.
