Re: SVN Commit of the Day/capship command discussion
We'll be releasing Act 3, hopefully in the next couple days. It's not quite the full R2 but it's something!
Act 3 of 4? So WiH will be released as a trilogy?

Also, will Acts 1 and 2 be rereleased with all these awesome updates?

Hopefully, and yes, Act 3's going to be delivered as a reinstall of your existing blueplanet2 folder. Windows users will get a cool installer to help minimize the dependency hell that's built up over the years.

Please tell me it's a different campaign. Don't make me replay WiH act 1 and 2 again (pilot issues don't even ask).

We'll provide individual VPs, but unfortunately, you're probably going to end up having to delete and replace whatever you've got anyway.

EDIT---

On contemplation, i do appreciate the amount of times you (the glorioous BP team) have probably had to do just that. (download and re-download everything)

Added a dialogue segment to flesh out Taki and the overall dynamic and reset player emotional state. Added more intelligence to Hyperion behaviors (the 'runner' ship will now slip into the 'shooter' role if the shooter cruiser has to pull out). Reallocated Janus and Epimetheus power slightly towards beam weapons to cut ~5 seconds off cycle time - they are very slow to jump out so it seems they have the spare power.

Major update focused on AI behavior in m27. Hyperions whose jump clocks are still running when they hit critical hull will attempt a crash jump with a chance of catastrophic failure. All cruisers will now use the Hood's battlenet and ECM advantage for salvo fire at range. The Tigris will lend ECM channels to the Hesperia in defense. Diomedes capabilities tied to the quality of their jump solution. Diomedes will reallocate power and enter defensive stance once heavily damaged. More Tev ships deploy flares for Paveway, Warhammer, and Apocalypse defense. Added beam shutter and regen system to Hyperions. Auroras in Auriga wing will now use their ECM capabilities for buddy stealth on Auriga 3 until the objective is complete. All fighters gained the ability to use their afterburners when executing any order type, not just attacks (thanks coders!)

Restructured mission into cleaner loops to avoid message jams.

STOP TAUNTING US WITH AWESOME!  :hopping: Or keep taunting us with it, if you feel like it . . .
"We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, 'I know this is not politically correct, but...' in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."

Talking about new features is not only great for FREDder morale, but it helps improve those features too. One of the systems in the last log got a bit of improvement after a #bp discussion.

Re: SVN Commit of the Day/capship command discussion
The Tevs are sick of their beams being Paveway'd and sick of getting absolutely hammered by Apocalypse and Warhammer volleys. The strategic opening the Fedayeen hammered so aggressively in Act 3 wasn't spent idly.

UEF bombers cannot be tamed. Implemented Aegis-style battlegroup defense system for the Hood + escorts. Pushing mission towards alpha complete.
