You should totally release that code, and let people see if it can be made into a non-OP weapon for silly mods.  :drevil:

Trial run on enhanced high-end Federation torpedoes with countermeasures to defeat warship close defenses, including decoy dispensers and armor. Good effect in tests. Accidentally created a torpedo which strikes a target, bursts through the other side, turns around, and reattacks, weaving in and out until target is destroyed.  :shaking:

Recursive round? I like this idea.

Oh, and BP's now trunk-compatible again: the experimental lighting stuff will be moved to its own special package and left to people who want to actively seek it out and use it.

Took a trip over to Atomic Rockets.

The post was years ago, I'm not sure where. Essentially Harbingers and Furies are hilariously overpowered, according to the Tech room only.
A Fury (3kt) is roughly equivalent to one-fifth a Hiroshima and a Harbinger (5000Mt) is equivalent to a magnitude 9.7 earthquake. Pretty reasonable figures... in a realistic setting where you're shooting these things across light-minutes and exploding a warhead within a kilometer of the target is a close hit. Not so much at Freespace's scale with direct-hit detonations that would vaporize ships even with half the payload. But you don't really want to play a game about making a sandwich while waiting to see if your lasers lase true, you want to play a game where you get up and shoot ugly aliens in the face, and to that end you handwave everything as a virtual abstraction and go back to shooting ugly aliens in the face.

Uh, where do they say that?  I was under the impression that yields in FS were embraced, rather than shunned (especially considering how anti-matter warheads of any capacity are going to be orders of magnitude more devastating, and the UEF uses **** tons of them.).
Indeed. A matter/antimatter weapon of mass equal to the Harbinger's theoretical minimum would be over twenty times as powerful, in the ballpark of 105 gigatons. A Solaris firing such warheads would kill off the dinosaurs in five minutes. Needless to say the Tevs are lucky the UEF never had the need for such a weapon.

Backing the requests for code. Seems like it could be used to make fun weapons that bounce between targets, Mutalisk-style.

You should leave this is as an easter egg, accessible via the weapon switching cheats.

Ships in the Dreamscape will now render into existence with a cool effect. Added the first Dreamscape tutorial: mission prep for the viral strike and anti-AWACS tactics used in 'Nothing is True'.

Scrambling to add as much content as possible before I move. Added dreamscape training for the ESM tactics used in 'Everything is Permitted'. Still need to add training for escape and evade.

There's a sexp (ship-effect) that lets us use a variety of animated shaders on ships (the cloaking effect for example). One that's neat to use in a "digital construct" context is the FS1 Ship Select effect. And Valathil did design it so, yes!

Re: SVN Commit of the Day/capship command discussion
the FS1 Ship Select effect

Kinda though it was that, w00t!

(fs1 ship select effect > fs2 ship select effect)
(because fs1 > fs2)

All the dreamscape training stuff sounds really amazing. It'll be interesting to see how previous exposure to certain gameplay elements increases performance in the high-pressure scenario, and whether it works better for certain things than others. Oh god I'm thinking like a researcher now, I've been writing too much for class
