Good to hear you've been having fun.  :yes:
I'll have to look into that bug...
If she doesn't show up, you should probably (hopefully) still be able to finish the mission. Her appearing in the mission or not will have no further consequences in the campaign.

Alright, cool thanks!

 
Re: Reviews and Feedback thread Episode 1 & 2
Just finished WoD, so I guess it's time for a review.

Spoon.
My dude.
And Axem. And literally everyone else who helped make this happen.
You guys nailed it.

The lighthearted atmosphere was fun. The combat mechanics were awesome. VN sequences were polished and entertaining. The Templar is the best fighter wait what.
Anyways, yes. Excellent stuff. The only thing I would change (and from what I read here in the forum, I'm not the only one who shares this opinion) is to make the simulator missions optional. I really can't think of anything else. It's that good. And I trust you've got some direction already for the next episode, which I cannot wait to play!

The crafting system was also super creative. The VX-02X and VX-23FS were awesome on the Kaze, which was my go-to fighter (I much prefer lighter, more nimble gliding gameplay over heavier assault craft).

So yeah. 10/10 from me.
Also, I played with the 18+ patch. It uh...really filled out the VN sequences...

Has anybody recorded some footage of the CSA vs LSF cutscene yet? I'd like to see it but wasn't able to find it on YT.

You mean this one?


(you'll have to forgive the darkness, I normally set brightness within FSO to 1.15; but it looks like OBS ignores that setting and I have low video editing/mixing skills to correct that "in post")

Ahhh, such a beautiful thing, thank you for uploading this! :) I wanted to watch it on my own PC but with 32 bit builts... I had to swap ship classes only to be able to skip it without crash...

Re: Reviews and Feedback thread Episode 1 & 2
Right. I forgot to post after finishing my playthrough. I ended up using default FreeSpace controls because my fossilized brain couldn't remember the throttle controls for the new setup so I ended up not being able to use slide much, but still managed to do fine. Made the Vulture a bit more tricky to fly, the one time I tried it but it still worked. Amusingly I ended up just using the bogstandard FreeSpace 1/2 meta of a rapid-fire primary and loading nothing but the light dumbfires for secondaries. Basically, Droid803 the caveman-brained moron deliberately played WoD like it was FS2, made it work through sheer stubborness, purposefully ignoring all of the new and cool stuff, then wondered why WoD played almost exactly like FS2 except with abusable shielded capships. Yes. I am not  an intelligent robot.
I also found the CRF Templar to be a decent craft. The characters complain that it's bad for a Gen 4, but you never get to compare it with it's supposed contemporaries so it's actually not awful to actually fly, fat target profile aside.
I especially liked what you did with the Contravention. Will what it does be shown in other instances with the other UGC ships? :P
Also, I'm slightly miffed I didn't get to keep my new friend at the end. Why did everyone have to shoot it? I was going to tame it and ride it gloriously into battle...

Overall, it's gr8. I r8 8/8! It's the first time I've been hooked playing FreeSpace and being excited to fire up the next mission and see how the story is going to progress and whatnot in ages. It also happens to be my first time actually playing FreeSpace in a non-development capacity in ages, go figure.

You've heard all my gripes already, and there's nothing new so I'll leave em off here. *cough* SOC loop the simulators please *cough*

You need to be at least 8 feet tall to ride!
