Re: RELEASE: The Scroll of Atankharzim, Part I
I'm not a model guy.  Does anyone have a patch that can handle this?
Like Nightmare says this is a subsystem flag.

However I like the mission, and I'm not really inclined to try rebalancing it now that we're hard at work on Part II.
This is not a huge point. Something to maybe consider when you do a facelift in five or ten years, but I'm glad to see your priority is Part II.

2) I don't actually remember why the sentries are protected.  It's possible this is to encourage the wingmen to attack the cargo.
Which doesn't make much sense to me, honstly. Why ignore a threat to kill harmless cargo containers first?

Well, the Irkalla is trying to get to the Knossos, and the Tribute is exiting the Knossos.  It's inevitable that they would be face to face.  Also, who knows how long it takes to charge a carrier's jump drive.
The Tribute isn't even trying to move away from the Irkalla's main guns, though. Plus it's parked across the Knossos, implying it deliberately maneuvered into this position after it had jumped in. It's not something that kills the mission for me, just something that sprang to my eye and which I'd personally avoid.


Regarding the Terran weaponry and lack of secondary ammo, I'll take notes in which missions those appear during my next run.

Oh, and another thing: Are SoA assets free to be used by other mods? :)

I think pretty much all assets shown in R1 were taken from other mods in the first place (except the skyboxes, and they're free to use too).

Re: RELEASE: The Scroll of Atankharzim, Part I
Yup.

Also, I've added the "reset when idle" flag to all ships with initial-position settings for turrets.  That'll be in the next update, whenever it is.

What was in the 1.7.1 version released recently?

Two things.  One is in the post literally right above yours.  The other is a bugfix in Axem's markbox script.

Re: RELEASE: The Scroll of Atankharzim, Part I
Are you planning another 'branch' for Scroll 2 like Scroll part 1 had?

I.e., one set of missions is more 'conventional' and the other branch more stealthy?

Scroll 2 has a branch in it, as well as an optional SOC loop.

So glad to hear Scroll 2 is going to be a thing. I'm playing through Scroll 1 right now and am enjoying it immensely.

If the Prasna spawns in the tech room version of Irkalla Passes, it is virtually impossible to destroy. It appears to have a flag on its engines that prevents it from being disabled, and the Halifax approaches it with a weird attack logic so that it won't fire its beams until it's behind the Prasna. (The Halifax also won't fire its beams on the Irkalla at all, although that's kind of a moot point.) This probably isn't as much of an issue in the campaign, since the Prasna will be either damaged or destroyed in Masks.

EDIT: lol, Pallas got it as it was jumpin' out. Eat it, Shivans.  :drevil:

We have returned to continue our purification of this galaxy. It is again your turn to be crushed beneath the great force that is the Antaran army. All your petty squabbling with the other beings in this galaxy is meaningless. The Antaran fleet will destroy you all, one by one. You may not surrender. You cannot win. Your only option is death.

So in Arachnicide, if you lose the Enterprise, but the Arachnas is still destroyed...

Re: RELEASE: The Scroll of Atankharzim, Part I
Well that's weird, because the mission contains this event:

Code: [Select]
$Formula: ( when
   ( is-destroyed-delay
      0
      "Arachnas"
   )
   ( ship-guardian-threshold
      10
      "Python"
      "Seshat"
      "Chons"
      "Nekhbet"
      "Enterprise"
      "Lamarask"
      "Hathor"
   )
)
+Name: guardian everyone
+Repeat Count: 1
+Interval: 1

Enterprise is destroyed, then Arachnas.
