Re: Those special FreeSpace moments...
I call it Nyarly. (Luficer -> Lucy...etc)
(And the correct spelling is Nyarlathotep)

But hmm...the best moment would have to have been when I got roasted by the SD Beleth's beam cannon after finally taking down all the beams on the Sathanas after fifteen tries. Oh wait, that moment sucked. I swore.

I liked 'Memento Mori' (Derelict), 'Nemesis' (Inferno R1), and 'Forced Entry' (BP)...uhh...that's all I recall at the moment.

I didn't like 'White Noise' even though it was, by a FREDding standpoint, pure awesomeness. Why? No shields = I DIE ****ING LOTS. I was on the verge of just hitting the "skip" button. (plus it crashed until someone else fixed it).

There's a skip button in FS2?

Fail a mission (Five times?) and you get the option to skip the level along with the quit to main menu and replay buttons.

Yeah, five times.

I use that all the time in Enter the Dragon (FSPort only, in FS1 you don't have the option and have to play the mission regardless).

Or in the SOC loops there is a skip button! Or is that an exit loop button?  :nervous:

Exit loop.

Don't do that. You have to play the entire campaign again if you want to play the loops you skipped.

Re: Those special FreeSpace moments...
Only did that a couple of times, the first 2 I played through and only then because I could not find Snipes in the nebula in the second loop! Then I discovered the joys of the 3d radar! Thanks SCP!

Some people find the 3D Radar hard to use... I'm one of them.

I guess my IQ is pretty low then, huh...

It's all down to spacial awareness! Some are better at it than others, nothing to do with IQ

Or both?

For me, a special moment was the first time I laid eyes on the Coli, and the first time I saw the Sath in all its crowning glory.

Special moment for me is from Derelict, the dream mission.  Another great moment from that campaign was the Lucifer emerging from subspace (in subspace) and smashing that Charybdis.

Yeah. That was clever use of the Volition Bravos.

Boystrous 19 year old temp at work slapped me in the face with an envelope and laughed it off as playful. So I shoved him over a desk and laughed it off as playful. It's on camera so I can plead reasonable force.  Temp is now passive.

For me that was moment was just plain weird. The thing appeared, I was looking the other way and didn't notice for a while, and for some reason, the messages triggered 10 minutes too late (or something around 10 minutes), so I was flying around aimlessly for the majority of that mission with a huge Shivan superdestroyer that nobody else seemed to notice.
