The mission NTFCampV3.fs2 in the second Vasudan arc is broken.
The Iron Fist's escape pods spawn too soon and too close to the Iron Fist. All 8 are always destroyed in the Iron Fist's explosion, leaving the mission a failure. I just Guardianed half of them to complete the mission. It's been too long since I touched FRED, so I'm not sure how to protect the pods from the explosion without permanently Guardianing them. Is there an SEXP for timed invulnerability?
As for the campaign, I'm almost done and it's been fun if somewhat frustrating at times. Too often, I kept retrying for objectives which were revealed to be impossible. This led to a few
moments. I also would have liked more control over my ship and loadout selection. I do think there are too many missions where Alpha wing's configuration is locked, sometimes even when able to fiddle with other wings. But I do enjoy how the loops were used, and getting back at the NTF after those early underdog missions was a great payoff for the first arc.
