Look in Incursion_Return/data. Add a /missions subfolder, and put the fixed mission in there.
And would that override the VP File?

Yep. Anything in the /data folder of a mod overrides its VPs; useful if you're making minor revisions to a VPed mod.
"We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, 'I know this is not politically correct, but...' in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."

Yes indeed! Very, very clever and useful! :)

Thank you. I will put this to the test soon.

The Hatenkh made it out safely thanks to the instructions you gave to the confused crew of the Harpo, Macfie.

Thank you once again for your work. And you too for the help, Lepanto. :nod:

The campaign continues... :)

Re: Release: Incursion and Return to SOL (SCP edition)
I'm having a problem with the campaign...

Spoiler:
In the mission "Saturn Assault" I am having the problem of when the Riga is destroyed, the debris collides with the Rhebis causing major damage. I either put this down to the Rhebis spawning too close to the debris or the GTVA destroyers jumping in too early. It is making the Rhebis almost impossible to keep alive as it becomes random as to whether the debris hits it or not.

P.S. Thanks niffiwan!

As for the issue, sorry, I haven't played this campaign so I don't have any suggestions to avoid that issue.

Spoiler:
You get a communication from the GTSD Thor at the end of the mission saying "Sorry we couldn't save the Rhebis" even if the Rhebis survives.  So storyline wise I don't think the Rhebis is supposed to survive.  It's supposed to be destroyed by the enemy superdestroyer.

Re: Release: Incursion and Return to SOL (SCP edition)
Thanks CT27!

I wondering if it might be worth the author editing the mission slightly, as there was one play through that I had where...

Spoiler:
I almost saved the Rhebis as it had not collided with the Riga debris and I had been able to perform surgical strikes on the super destroyer to stop it causing catastrophic damage. The only reason I had not saved it was because I had got lazy and stopped destroying the anti fighter beams which were enough to give it a killing blow. The edit I would suggest is maybe to have the Rhebis enter the mission on lower HP and maybe adding a note in the briefing that it is having problems with the reactor.

Please note that the above is just a suggestion and I think it would help iron out any confusion that others might have when they play the campaign... call it a little... polish... maybe!

Overall though, I have been enjoying the campaign and it has been good fun. Just need voices next hehe :p

If you come across the original Author maybe you can talk to him about doing that.  This is the FreeSpace Campaign Restoration project not the original author. 
To quote the rerelease thread, "Since the the upgrade was done by only one person, this is not a complete upgrade.  Everything was done to make sure the campaign could be played with the latest nightly and would be compatible with the media VPs.  The starfield.pof was added to all the missions but no further work was done on backgrounds.  A couple of the missions were rebalanced to keep them playable, but other than that the gameplay has been left the same.  Limited testing was done."



Normal people believe that if it isn't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it isn't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
The difference between Mechanical Engineers and Civil Engineers is:
Mechanical Engineers build weapons.  Civil Engineers build targets
An optimist sees the glass half full; the pessimist sees it half empty. An engineer sees that the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Re: Release: Incursion and Return to SOL (SCP edition)
I'm having a problem with Return to Sol. Whenever I try to launch its first mission, the game crashes, and I get this error:

Error: Subsystem Path ($path02) Parent (turret01) in model (griffinTer.pof) has less than 2 vertices/points!
File: modelread.cpp
Line: 2986

I haven't been able to find a solution for this. I'd appreciate some help.

Re: Release: Incursion and Return to SOL (SCP edition)
There is an error with one of the old models.  This download should work.  I'm not sure why that particular model error would crash a build, however.
If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.
