I'm not a model guy. Does anyone have a patch that can handle this?
Like Nightmare says this is a subsystem flag.
However I like the mission, and I'm not really inclined to try rebalancing it now that we're hard at work on Part II.
This is not a huge point. Something to maybe
consider when you do a facelift in five or ten years, but I'm glad to see your priority is Part II.
2) I don't actually remember why the sentries are protected. It's possible this is to encourage the wingmen to attack the cargo.
Which doesn't make much sense to me, honstly. Why ignore a threat to kill harmless cargo containers first?
Well, the Irkalla is trying to get to the Knossos, and the Tribute is exiting the Knossos. It's inevitable that they would be face to face. Also, who knows how long it takes to charge a carrier's jump drive.
The Tribute isn't even trying to move away from the Irkalla's main guns, though. Plus it's parked across the Knossos, implying it deliberately maneuvered into this position after it had jumped in. It's not something that kills the mission for me, just something that sprang to my eye and which I'd personally avoid.
Regarding the Terran weaponry and lack of secondary ammo, I'll take notes in which missions those appear during my next run.
