Yes.
To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

The name has changed? Now I might not play it. I feel apprehensive about playing a campaign that I cannot read the name of. What are these strange runes, some kind of obscure Terran dialect? I will have to consult the Obsidian Order for more information.

Re: RELEASE: 次元のエクリプス - Dimensional Eclipse
Since I'm still downloading quite slowly, I had enough time to wonder about the title:
Did you write eclipse in katakana for the looks? (If not: 日食 = Solar eclipse - nisshoku; 月食 = lunar eclipse - gesshoku)

And why did you end it with a "su" ス instead of a "se" セ ?

Because it refers to an eclipse of the dimensional variety, not a solar or lunar. Plus, it is a thing to put ENGLISH in titles, you know that! :P (so yes I guess it is for the looks)
Also, the terminal e is silent, thus I write as as I would write 'eclips', thus the "su" ス. Using "se" セ, would be right if it was pronounced "eclipseh". I certainly don't pronounce it that way.  :confused: do you?
Rikaichan agrees with me!

What are you talking about? The name didn't change. There are four lights.  Heh, heh..

How are you aware of our secret interrogation methods? Is this the work of Section 31?  :nervous:

Re: RELEASE: 次元のエクリプス - Dimensional Eclipse
Actually, having just done some research on that type of stuff, I can even give you a colloquial term for the method here on Terra:

Gaslighting:

Quote
Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse in which false information is presented with the intent of making a victim doubt his or her own memory and perception. It may simply be the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred, or it could be the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim.
The term "gaslighting" comes from the play Gas Light and its film adaptations. In those works a character uses a variety of tricks to convince his spouse that she is crazy, so that she won't be believed when she reports strange things that are genuinely occurring, including the dimming of the gas lamps in the house (which happens when her husband turns on the normally unused gas lamps in the attic to conduct clandestine activities there). Since then, it has become a colloquial expression that is now also used in clinical and research literature.[1][2]

Etymology

The term derives from the 1938 stage play Gas Light (originally known as Angel Street in the United States), and the 1940 and 1944 film adaptations. The plot concerns a husband who attempts to convince his wife and others that she is insane by manipulating small elements of their environment, and insisting that she is mistaken or misremembering when she points out these changes. The title stems from the husband's subtle dimming of the house's gas lights, which she accurately notices and which the husband insists she's imagining.
The term "gaslighting" has been used colloquially since at least the late 1970s to describe efforts to manipulate someone's sense of reality. In a 1980 book on child sex abuse, Florence Rush summarized George Cukor's 1944 film version of Gas Light, and writes, "even today the word [gaslight] is used to describe an attempt to destroy another's perception of reality".[3]

Ah, fascinating. Your culture had such potential before the advent of the feeble Federation.

Okay, I have to admit, that last mission was awesome.  Who came up with the idea for the star wars-style trench run?

Spoiler:
I have to give mad props to Esarai for building the model like that. Even though he said it doesn't have trench run syndrome, it does, and it's awesome for it. Couldn't have done it without those subtleties he built into the model, with the lower turret density at the front, and the hangar tunnels and all.

I found it amusing.  :nervous:  Of course, if it were up to me, newbies would still be getting the welcome speech + beam every time.

You and WoulterSmits and HAZARDLEADER should start a club. :nod:

And I would pay real money just to see these derps interact.

Droid803 told me that if I aced the test in the beginning I would get an alternate campaign path that was "kind of stupid". So I did.

I couldn't figure out how to associate the blocks I was blowing up with the answers, so I just shot random ones.  :D

Re: RELEASE: 次元のエクリプス - Dimensional Eclipse
BTW, I keep crashing on the mission where you are going to the station to pick up your pay and get jumped by the Emperor-class carrier.  It's not the mission, it crashes in random spots (sometimes when the carrier jumps in, sometimes before) and it's crashed several times before this and I just restarted.  Except now it's not even giving me the error messages like everyone else was getting, it's just saying FS Open stopped working.

Are there any other builds I could use?  Where are the directions for compiling a nightly; I might try that instead.
