Why can't you just replay the previous mission from the briefing screen and again do the same in the previous mission? Thereby you should be able to get back to the first mission in the red alert streak.
Also a funny coincidence this thread has been brought back up now, because Scroll of Atankarzim
having whet my appetite, I felt like re-playing Derelict
- which I did over the past couple of days.
In a first instance, it was nice to see that it plays well with the most recent MediaVPs and builds. One of the advantages of having a campaign which uses virtually no mods and no SCP features. I found plenty of smaller bugs which would make it worth giving this old lady another facelift - it's been seven years since the last one after all. I openly admit, though, that I'm too lazy to do it know.
Boy, this thing is ancient.
When was it acutally originally released? I remember the first mission of the second act being available as a single mission in one of the official versions of FS2. Man, I still was a child back then and had no idea that there are people out there making entire campaigns. I didn't find out until years later that this mission was actually part of something much larger.
I bet, Derelict
is definitely the oldest campaign which is still being played regularly by a significant number of players. As they should, because this is certainly one of the great masterpieces this community has to offer. Yes, technically Derelict
is probably below any standard modern-age campaigns have set, but like with all classics there some magic to it. That special charm. Be it the great and unique storyline, Mackies cynicism, or simply the sometimes horribly bad voice acting sound quality, it all comes together within a large role of tuct tape to something none of theser newer days' campaigns can achieve despite all the cool new features and shiny models they bring. I can't describe it, I'd say nobody can, but I'd also say everybody knows what I mean. Derelict
. If you don't like this one, stop playing FreeSpace.
