Geez, Snail, it's a compliment. :eek2:

If I said I didn't like the voice acting in Derelict... :nervous:

I recently replayed INFR1. Although the story is thin and the mission design plain, it clearly pushed the envelope as to what was possible (for the time it was released), and the willingness to radically redesign ships and weapons was really cool.

I think INFR1 was an important campaign. There's no reason to bash it. Like Derelict or anything else from its time, it's showing its age -- but that just shows that we've made some progress since then.

Plus, the EA is, well, really cool. I want to fly Claymores. (They really gave the impression that the EA did, in fact, have an elite pilot corps.)

You CAN fly a CLaymore; drag the main INFR1 file out into the main FreeSpace 2 folder and open up FRED2. It should work so long as you use the retail FRED2. I've tried to create a mission detailing the launch of the TSJ Icanus, but I never finished it. It should be on my sister's hard-drive somewhere...

Found it. It looks like an older revision, since the Ancient cruiser is missing. Nevertheless, it should work, although it's not complete in any way. Default ship is the EAF Claymore.

Unfortunately, as matters stand right now I don't have access to my usual PC, and FRED doesn't work on Mac. I appreciate the mission, though! I'll check it out.

The later chapters you fly in claymores, almost exclusively. (well, you get to fly the Stentor, and when that comes in, I always take it due to the fact it has the best gunmounts)

I was reading the tech description of the Stentor a few days ago in INFR1, and it seems to glorify the fighter.

The Stentor has 5 gunmounts in INFR1, which gives it more firepower than the other interceptors. Its central gunmount is also the absolute best for hitting bombs in-flight. Other than that, yeah, it is a piece of crap.

Geez, Snail, it's a compliment. :eek2:
Well, you said "the only consolation", which makes me feel saaaaaaaaaad. :(

Huh, you people like the Claymores better than the Stentor!?
I can't hit a cruiser properly with all 8 guns on a Claymore mk2. Its like a Seraphim...
Don't get me started on the Claymore mk1. Its firepower is PATHETIC, and it turns so fast I can't aim with it at all. (not to mention I end up crashing into stuff).

M<eh, its prolly cause I just suck and stick to the noob-friendly ships.

Do you use a mouse or joystick? You could always change the sensitivity in the options menu.

What, like the Keres? :drevil:

You'll love them in INFA2, but loathe them in INFSCP.

I'm on a joystick, but turning down sensitivity makes bombers even more unresponsive.

I haven't tried the Keres (is it the thing with too many gunpoints?).

Then you crank it back up when you're flying a bomber. :P

16 isn't too much. I'd draw the line at 70.

Drag the INFR1 main file out into your root FS2 folder and run FRED2.

I love 16 guns. Keep it that way, please. :yes:

Why would you drag it into the main folder to use FRED? Simply make a shortcut to FRED, right click on the shortcut, and add "-mod INFR1" (without quotations) to the end of the application path.

Because I'm too lazy to create a shortcut with parameters? :nervous:

In any case, I don't FRED very often these days mostly because there is no Mac version of FRED. Not that I'm asking for one, anyway... :nervous:
