When the reactor explodes, it's usually a sign that you've taken too much damage.

I originally wanted to add an Orion that would deploy escape pods to fly to the Colossus, but the juggernaut swung so quickly around the waypoint turns that it smoked all four of them,

IMO, the Colossus should have said it's heroic phrase, set all systems to overload and just charge into the Sathanas.

Re: About the End of the GTVA Colossus...
On my first play through I found absolutely nothing wrong with the mission. In fact it was my favorite mission of the whole campaign at the time. Erinyes with Maxim/Kayser combo against a fleet of evil cruisers. Win!

Re: About the End of the GTVA Colossus...
Yeah.

I liked the fact that the Colossus, the GTVA's enormous phallic symbol of overweening arrogance, sputtered out miserably. Not to say that I hate the Colossus, but it's nothing in the face of the Shivans.

Not even fireing ONCE on the Sath?

You can't tell me that is not wrong.

Re: About the End of the GTVA Colossus...
Oh, no, I agree, it should definitely go down shooting. Give it at least that measure of dignity.

Funny thing is, sometimes I do see it fire...why would that be? Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't.

Re: About the End of the GTVA Colossus...
I think it's the distance...The Sath is right out of beam cannon range.

the only thing one need to do is move the Sath a bit closer to the Colossuss and it will open up with all of it's weapons.

The Colossus' beam range is 4000 meters I think.

I thought it was 8000 meters... :nervous:

...but TrashMan's right. The Sathanas jumps in and stops just out of beam range so it can bombard the Colossus with impunity. When you think of it, that's kind of like a retribution, because Sathanas 01 was forced to engage the Colossus in a rigged dogfight.

I must be mistaken then, probably mixing my experiences of the Ravana vaping with the Sath killing.

Sadly, I've saved the Colossus at least once, but it does nothing :P

Re: About the End of the GTVA Colossus...
hey, this got me thinking: why hasn't anybody redone the FS2 campaign so it goes the way we want it? (completely optimized, different ending, new missions to replace the ones that are just meh...)
Sig nuked! New one coming soon!

Someone could also rewrite the Bible. Granted, certain people (though not me) would be offended by such blasphemy.
