A NEW UPDATE RELEASED:
I have a released this new update because I have made essential changes to accomodate the sequel, "The Aftermath 2: The Blue Guardian." There is nothing much really just a few adjustments. The download links in the release page will be updated later. You can download them from there if they are updated. But you can now download this from this post:
EDIT: Old links deleted, new ones are available in the release post
--Some changes in the mission "Hornest's Nest." It will no longer give hell to players... Maybe just a bit.
--Updated the SCv Scylla to a newer version with just the right polygons to render good performance. Edited the POF model and the table entries to make the specs exactly like the old one to ensure it doesn't ruin the balancing of the game. Consequently, the file "AF-Extra.vp" is also updated.
--Also added "The Aftermath" version of Freespace 2. Basically the same as the original except for the modified space background to coincide with the mod's locational setting.
--Further improved some of the missions in terms of balancing and some details.
--corrected some bugs in the mission designs---I found some.
--Refined and corrected some of the cutscenes like taking out the HUD that is appearing when it's not suppose to, adjusted the cameras and events to be synchronized with the music.
--Made changes in the "Turret Command script" (CSC script). It can now be turned ON and OFF at will using an SEXP line and to accommodate more ships including the ones in the sequel, "The Blue Guardian." I tried making a separate CSC script for the sequel instead of modifying the Reboot's script but it turned out the two scripts were "fighting" for control so there can only be one CSC script.
--Made some adjustments on the difficulty factor - Adjusted the AI profiles. This time, it will not feel like a chore---I know, I felt it too when playing this again.
--Made some adjustments and corrected minor errors in the table entries like the energy distribution (engine, shield, weapons).
--Additional Tech descriptions for space installations.
--Corrected some more spelling errors (at least the ones I found).
--Made some adjustments in the modulat tables to accommodate the sequel, "The Blue Guardian." There were several changes I cannot recall.
