Halfway-finished a new mission today. Convoy escort with a twist..that's all I'm going to say
Arr..arr..screw that, I can't resist
You're escorting two tritons in an active asteroid belt. The belt is marked with Nav Lights (remember that old mod)? At the far end of the asteroid field is a node. Easy enough.
Except that the reason you don't see nav lights in the original FS2 campaign, I've decided, is that the heavily traveled nodes' have all been blown up.
Thus, the node you are guarding is not heavily traveled. Why?
The space mines, maybe? The sentry guns speckled throughout the field? Or could it be the Thoths, hidden, powered down behind the Nav Lights?
You're going to have fun protecting those two Tritons.
