Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
The lack of time and ammo would be a valid reason why not to finish off the enemy ships though.

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
Spoiler:
Played Act II as well. :)

TVWP is definitely a project I will monitor from now on for various reasons. I like your efforts, but there are two things which are kind of bugging me. One is about the plot:

1) Why did space colonization outside Sol started so late? 2314... only two decades before FS1 and some seven years before the beginning of the Terran-Vasudan War. I've always thought it started much earlier, with billions and billions of Terrans living outside Sol at the time of FS1.

I see you're trying to describe all those events step by step, but I think starting interstellar space colonization in 2250 or earlier would have been much more plausible giving the extent of Terran colonies outside Sol at the time of FS1 and, more importantly, FS2. IMHO 21 years just don't seem enough to raise notable colonies outside Sol unless some sort of mass emigration occurred.

2) FREDding was good and the missions were playable, but I'd like to see improvements in the future. More in-mission cutscenes, for example, may help turning this into the best campaign ever.

Not really.  Capella, one of the most prosperous Terran colonies, only had a few hundred million inhabitants at the end of FS2, and it has been stated (also in FS2) that Sol has more inhabitants and more infrastructure than the rest of the Terran worlds put together.

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
A good set missions, though I still have gripes about things from the previous Act, none of which are mission-related.
There's the Kestrel not having a canopy, some others have said it before and it was kind of funny seeing it the first time, but the two biggest things are the weapons, I always felt the weapons should have more diveristy in sounds, instead of three or four weapons having the same sound. Then there's also the distance at which they can be heard, there's no gap between [You can hear it this much at this distance] and [You hear it all the way at this distance], it's simply all-out, the moment you're in that range you can't tell if an enemy is one Klick away from you or five meters from your face.

Okay so far I do have one mission complaint, the blockade mission (Third mission), there's two Carriers in the field, why don't they do anything to help take down the ships trying to escape? I watched the second Frigate pass by without either Carrier lifting a finger.

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
The evacuation of Capella started when the first Sathanas was about to enter the system, and I don't remember wheter or not the evacuation was stopped shortly after the destruction of that juggernaut (it may have been continued for safety reasons, who knows). Considering the time gap between the first Sathanas encounter and Capella's destruction, it's possible that most Capellans weren't at home when the Sathanas fleet approached their system. At least, that's what I think.


In other words, I don't think those 200 million Capellans were 100% of Capella's original population. Additionally, I don't even remember any canon source stating that Capella was one of the most populated Terran systems in GTVA space.

Does anyone mind clarifying this? If you're right, then TVWP got everything right. :)

The evacuation was explicitly continued. Know Your Canon.

Capella was explicitly stated to be one of the most populous systems in GTVA space. Know Your Canon.

SpardaSon is right.

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
Here you go, by the way:

Quote
A small task force will oversee the demolition of the Knossos while the bulk of the allied fleet blockades the jump node leading to the densely-populated Capella system. Command has begun the process of evacuating the two hundred fifty million civilians inhabiting Capella, the largest exodus since the Great War. The Colossus will remain in that system to engage the Sathanas should we fail.

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
So... "only" 50 million Capellans were successfully evacuated after the first Sathanas encounter? I thought GTVA transports were much more efficient...  :shaking:

Yep, TVWP's approach on interstellar space colonization is definitely a plausible one. You were right.  :nod:

According to the FS Ref Bible, "subspace travel" was only discovered in 2313.  TVWP fudges this to "intersystem subspace travel".  There isn't much wiggle room.

Know Your Canon, as Battuta said.

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
250 million is the population of Capella, a "densely populated system" in 2367. I don't find it too hard to accept that Sol still holds the bulk of the Terran population.

Also:

Quote
To date, Terrans have successfully colonized twelve worlds outside of the Sol system. Outposts have been established on fifteen other planets and moons throughout the known galaxy.
FS1 gives us a rather detailed overview of the extent of colonization.

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
I always imagined the overpopulation of Sol to be a main driving force behined the U-war and the GTA's mass expansion; virtually every planet, and moon was populated to their limits, and demand for space\asteroid-based colonies was stripping supportable supply. New systems with fully or even partly habitable worlds and resources are a quick'n'cheap solution; spread out the populations and slice the burden for everyone. Despite those movements though, i can certainly imagine Sol having a huge population compared to the rest of the GTA. Even with populations of 250 mil and below in other systems, Sol would still be teeming.

FS1 didn't mention it much in its background so we can't be sure and i might be wrong, but i can imagine it if you consider how sacrily quickly human populations grow. Apparently a little nation like the UK has a population over 61 million, and the US 307 million (2008 numbers apparently, quick search on google). If each pair have two kids/thats approx 122million and 614 million. Then take into account 200 years, advances in medical tech and the likely risen quality of life (aka longer life) and your talking trillions just on one planet, and we haven't even considered China yet! :shaking:

And i thought 250 million was too high when i first heard it... now it seems pathetic! :lol:

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
Yeah, exactly.

It's worth noting that human population increased by 500% in the past century and is continuing to increase. Space colonization will boost the process. :)

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
I concur that Sol's population was probably pushing its limits, but the non-Earth bodies probably weren't that heavily populated compared to Earth itself. The carrying capacities of most artificial or engineered habitats were probably very low by comparison, probably in the low millions at the most optimistic.

Once node travel opened up, moving populations directly to Earthlike worlds would probably have been a better solution than struggling to eke a living out of these hostile environments.

So not only is most of the human population probably in Sol, as T-Man said, but most of the Solar population is probably on Earth.

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
I just downloaded this tonight and from the amount I have been able to play I like it a lot. Unfortunately after the second training mission where you have to go kill the pirates I get a mission failure even though I completed it. I've read similar posts in this thread but I must be missing the solution. I'm running 3.6.12. Here's the debug log.
http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=70424.0

Yes, this is an acknowledged bug that will be fixed in the next release.  I apologize for the delay. :(  In the meantime, you can click on the "skip mission" button in the briefing, and you'll move to the next mission without missing anything.
As Goob said. Likely a mistake in the FREDing of the mission. Our bad. :nervous:

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
Is this act 2 or a demo of act 2? The titles are kinda confusing.

Act 2.

Re: TVWP Act II Demo Release
Originally, years ago, the Unification War was supposed to be a demo for the actual Terran-Vasudan War.  It eventually expanded to its own chapter, but as a result the word demo gets thrown in a lot.

I just downloaded and started it. Pretty good so far.

The campaign room lists THREE parts. I thought we only had two? :confused:

Apart from that: this is a hard campaign, but once you get the hang of it it's quite fun.

Biggest gripe: The Falcon is terrible. TAKE THE SHRIKE.
Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world — "No, you move." - Captain America
