So, I made a little what-if mission, supposing the Colonials were able to override the hack in the midst of the attack and hold the line. And then your battlestar is sent from the fighting to attack a pair of basestars that have withdrawn for repairs/rearmament/because they were sad.

A note: the tube launch is automagical-like rather than on key-press because I couldn't figure it out the sexy way.

Questions, comments, catastrophic world-devouring bugs?

*edit* if you open it in FRED, don't move the battlestar, 'cause I absolutely did place the fighters manually rather than jettison-cargo.  :banghead:

I'll play it if you upload it as an attachment here, it's the simplest way, and now I have to unpackage something

ok, I caved, but really, it's so easy

it was great, but I haven't finished it yet

half way in, my targeting has gone nuts both times, dunno

nice tube launce, wish there was a way to reload, I ran out of rounds before action.

Just cause we're not doing reloads in the official missions doesn't mean you 3rd party modders can't.

It's not like they're that hard even. If you've figured out how to do a combat landing you're halfway there. Simply use the get and set ammo SEXPs to add ammo to the player while they're in the pods and you're golden.

I thought attachments were removed every day or so around here?

I gave one of the hostile wings from Base2 EMP missiles, hopefully that is what was causing it.

And thank you.

Mission accomplished :D


As for ammo problems, I have an idea on that other than an in-flight reload, pending some table modifications. (Dummy weapon checked to raise the ammo count of the main banks. Hopefully it isn't much more complicated than that)

They are deleted regularily-ish, automatically and without notice. Most definitely not on a day-to-day basis, but I wouldn't expect it to last more than a few weeks. Especially if everyone starts using em.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

mother****ER ammo packs were going to be this big cool deal in bp2r2

e: Here are some cool tips for implementing ammo packs and other equipment:

You can exclude them from primary fire linking using a table flag, if they're a primary weapon

You can make AI use them but it requires some pretty roundabout FREDding

Loved the mission!

Some feedback that could be solved I think :
-Can you make the viper go on full speed when leaving the tubes? Now its on zero
-Every time I start the mission one of Azure's wingmen crash instantly.
-My targeting system went nuts some time. It kept like switching to the priority targets. Was this due to the EMP Missles or was there something else going on?

One of the best custom missions so far, my compliments!

-Should be able to.
-that's a scripted self-destruct
-should be the EMP missiles? Unless nukes cause an EMP effect (would be really cool if they did...) Probably will remove them when I update it.

Ah boo. Had a suspicion I'd seen the idea somewhere. I could always not do it // be distracted by kitty pictures or new WiH promo shots.  :nod:

Okies. I took a look at the mission again on a different PC and saw the weird target jumping that had nothing at all to do with EMP or anything and *I think* it was caused by something going on with the raptors when they left the bay. Switched it over to a warp in and I wasn't able to get the same jumping brackets to happen. Updated file is in the first post.

@JCQ: thank you.
