Just played the first mission:
I think I broke it. The debriefing did not reflect what happened in the mission when I played it. It said the Aquitaine died when it did not.
It is difficult to make debriefings which account for every situation, but it makes the missions more fun to play and much easier to understand.
I did not know what I should be doing so I think I jumped early. (All directive text was accounted for except 'Protect Aquitaine'). Ravana was destroyed.
Mission was fun though! Very nice backgrounds. You can use a more detailed star backround by going into the backgrounds editor in FRED and typing starfield.pof in the 'skybox model' textbox.
That was the first time I got a good look at the HTL Ravana. That thing looks very sexy, especially with the planet in the back.
EDIT: ... Axem you are a sicko.
Pretty good for your first mission. I'm hearing good things about the other ones too.
Edit: Well don't judge a book until you read the whole thing! Cool third mission.
