Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Well if you think about it, even without their better subspace technologies the Shivans should have pretty good knowledge of the whole region of GTVA space if from nothing else then their war with the ancients. We know they were using two of the three known Knossos portals for their own travel, so it's not a big leap of logic to say that they could probably activate one themselves and that they would already know it was there. I'm sure they could also have shut it down properly without blowing it up.

As for why? Well they're shivans. :p

Or, they could have used an uncharted jump node.  :nod:

If you don't have Knossos, you need it.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
 :eek2: I left the FS community for a while due to burnout and what luck I have to come back to...this! It's certainly worth the wait, that's for sure. No Jump Node 0s, no ****ty scripting, no science cruisers that have no purpose other than to make a huge explosion and kill you...

There are some minor niggles though:

-The Krios' captain is, well, kind of overacted. He sounds like he's constantly in a state of fuming rage.
-The pirate mission is somewhat buggy. I managed to get one of the friendly freighters disabled, and somehow I managed to fulfill the cargo objective when I turned on cheats and mercy-killed it with ~k. Perhaps you should add events that do something when freighters are disabled or make their engines invulnerable.
-The thing with the Crazy Ivans is the dirtiest, meanest, most low-down sucker punch I have ever experienced in an FS mission! That was cheap! At least give me some tiny chance to defend myself instead of cutting off my engines and killing me with a sexp when I call in support to get moving again! Grrrr! :hopping:

Good. That's the emotion we were hoping for. :D

I would have preferred a ...But Hate the Traitor pants-****ting ambush, but you didn't even give us the dignity of that, you just went for a "**** you" trap.

Uh, didn't you pay attention to the Giordano and the newly re-arrived Crazy Ivans?  What do you think they were doing?

Hint: You weren't killed by a sexp...

The fact that you couldn't escape if you didn't jump out should be more obvious, natch. Otherwise people are just going to keep retrying without actually jumping out.

Well, I did complete the mission, but I ended up having to replay it anyway from the red alert screen because red-alert works even if your engines are knocked out (which mine were), leaving me with no engines in the next mission.  And IIRC the next mission is flagged no support.

 
Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED

I actually did complete it on the first try without having my engines busted.  Pay attention to what your wingmates are saying.  HINT HINT.  The red alert section took me a couple tries.

Re: SILENT THREAT: REBORN RELEASED
Well after less than an hour of playing, I'm stuck on that red-alert mission where you follow two transports and have to protect them till a recovery ship arrives or what-not. A wing of Basilisk's seem to take them both down while I'm engaging them, and it's happened every time I've attempted it.

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

Look at the red dots next to the targeting boxes, and fire at the one nobody else is firing at.

How many friendly fighters are attacking the target.

I know. :blah: I actually made it easier without Goob noticing and moved the Basilisks an additional 400m away from where he had them.

My frequent Fs2-renaissances (relapses?) always seem to coincide with the release of some legendary project that was sure to never be released the last time I was around. I guess that's more obvious than it sounds...you know...all I'm really saying is that time passes for other people at about the same rate that it does for me. -

Uh, good job..."Goober"..."5000."
