Re: Those special FreeSpace moments...
Seeing the Lucifer destroy the Arcadia in FS1 in 2 easy shots. I was like :(

Psamtik destroyed. I thought like 3 Saths came!!

First appearance of the Ravana and Sath. Their blurry target view render and unknown size at that time gave me the creeps.

Flames of war dream mission, which was badly scripted. The sath simply fried me and I was like "Ok......?"

BUT!!

Sync. I nearly thought the missions are generated automatically, or I don't know... The sheer awesomeness got me ape-s_it about it.

Transcend. First time I flinched at a space sim.

        I think you're thinking of the dream mission from my campaign Meditations rather than FoW. A mission which I played through, about 20 times, and never got hit by the Sath and yet when I give it to other people they get hit by the beams. Never understood myself. Some things work fine on one person's computer, and don't work at all on someone else's.

Re: Those special FreeSpace moments...
Syn and Transcend were the first mod's i played that managed to get me on my toes and looking over my shoulder like a drugdealer on sellins spree in a police ocupied room :))))

Lol those campaign are just creepy at times they scared the living lights out of me and managed to get me to age 1 whole year in ode day.

I LOVE THEM!!!

The first time i saw the Ravana was like......."ok.....wtf is that and how can it destroy a corvette so fast....who cares im outta here ....alt+j"


The sath was like "oh for the love of jessica alba what did they bring now a ravana on a 10 year steroid cure..." I was actualy thinking "command get me the hell outta here ...."
Die shivan die!!
Then jumps into his apple stealth pie and goes of to war.What a brave lad....what a brave lad say the ladies in red.

The Duct Tape conversation in Derelict and the opening cutscene of FS1

Transcend to be honest has little to no effect on me but it's still a great campaign

Me parking myself underneath the GVCv Asar and shooting down its weapons subsystem. That's the only time I managed to do that in a Myrmidon with 63% hull.

Completing the Shivan Gauntlet (FS1) on Hard. :nod:


I was blowing up Scorpions left and right, and I screamed "I AM A FIGHTING GOD!!" at one point.

Could be. I wasn't really sure which campaign it was in, but something told me it was FoW... Well, sorry then and kudos to you :) It was a great idea.

Yeah, that was great. I really didn't know what was happening or what I had to do, so I hit my burners and tried to get away as far as possible.

Re: Those special FreeSpace moments...
Hm... The first time I played through the game, the "DIVE DIVE DIVE!"-thing just... well, I just plain dove and hit my burners. Didn't know what was supposed to hit me until the next playthrough. Of course, THAT time I was just staring at the Satahanas going "Shiiiii-"SPLAT. I think I tried a climb once, too. Don't do that. GOOOOD moment.

It was rather a while since I played FS1/2 [asbestos-suit put on], so I don't remember much. I COMPLETELY LOVED the feeling in FS1 before you had shield-piercing weaponry. See, I knew it was bound to turn around at some point...? Um. Anyway, I now remember the mission with McCarthy handing the Avenger-plans to the Vasudans special for some reason.

I'll try to create a mission some day with a really special moment in it. (Still haven't completed Blue Planet.)
I can't go home again until I find a stone a rose a door.
Choo choo, and that is the truth.

Ah yes, the paraphrase of something vulgar. :)

I saw a screenshot of that line just after a Lucifer jumped in. Which campaign was it used in?

That would be Derelict, with the line coming from the infamously duct-tape-hating Lt. Mackie.

Really? I haven't played past the third mission yet. I should soon.

On a thread-related note, ow. That pilot got his bottom handed to him. :shaking:
