I meant an inventory. Like each thing you buy could go in a store to be used and kept for free when unequipped.

Yeah that part of Nexus was a bit suck.

Re: NEXUS 2, when was it cancelled ?
nah, actually not. Because it was not money, it was work time. Depending on your current location and the status of whatever location, they had more or less time for your fleet. You don't buy, you order the support guys to equip your ships. Also, there was no almighty shop, you had to work with they had in the supply chambers and the nano-technology of the Anglewing (if you install any item in the Angelwing at least once, the ship's systems can recreate that item and there is always at least one of it in the cargo hold).
During missions were you were on your own, there was no reequiping.
I really liked the system.
And yeah, there is the undo button. Also, you can just load your game.


You know, I think I am going to replay it again. Once again. Hell, how many times do I have replayed that brilliant game already?

Re: NEXUS 2, when was it cancelled ?
I'm doing it right now, and really enjoying it.

I found the registry hack to let you run it at widescreen resolutions, and although the briefing text usually shows up offscreen, everything else is fine.

Just got out of the Earth-Noah wormhole and I'm adapting to the new tactics. Made the mistake of taking lasers for a little, but it's pretty clear e-shell/railgun combos are the way to go right now.

correct. I hope you choose at least the second difficuty setting (and patched the game before).
The easy setting is a joke, no tactics needed.

Played through it before. I'm redoing it on Experienced.

I've only played through it the once, either on Easy or the next one up, and I got my ass handed to me in more than a few missions until I started thinking things through.  The second to last mission and those ****ing missile battleships in particular... argh.  I want to know how their missions made it through the fighters and best flak systems every single time, and mine didn't so much as scratch them.  I finally had to resort to dual siege lasers to knock them out and then concentrate on the Gorg.

At any rate, while some missions are a little too easy, the rest are a reasonable challenge even on easy.

yeah, the second to last mission, the big final fleet battle above Earth before you *spoiler*...     ...wonderful.

Experienced is the second setting and should be the default one. After one runthrough, you should only play professional. To be honest, it doesn't change much or makes the game more difficult, the main change is the amount of points to upgrade.
