The missions have been updated to allow for a pause at the end and a Mission Completed dialogue on the main view screen.

It shouldn't bug but if it does let me know.

Arrew, I finally had the chance to try Campaign Two. Nice mission, nice curve ball on Comms! Thx again, Chas

It's my pleasure.

Try episode three, It's a fun one.
Some good programming in there, perhaps something you haven't seen before out side of GM script (or so I hope).

Started playing through the entire campaign WAY too late one night recently with several fellow Artemis fans and can barely remember how it went...

I do remember a few events from Episode 3:

  • "Hey, that's cool! Just fly in there, right?"
  • "Helm, take us in."
  • "Roger that." ... screen updates...
  • "Oh, CRAP!"
  • "Weapons, HOLD FIRE! Last thing we need is to get aggro from 20 of--"
  • "Too late, they're closing!"
Good times!

Episode 4: The end of this one reminded me of an action movie chase scene, with the good guys shooting out the tires of the bad guy's vehicle... fun! Also: search/replaced instillation with installation (spelling fix only, no logic changed) for the next version in the Mission Pack, releasing later this month.

Episode 5: I was Helm for this one. We ALMOST made it back to USFP space... but near the end we impacted a mine field which didn't appear until we were well within fatal range. Not sure if that's a bug.

WOW! So gratifying that someone's played so far through it. Your almost at the end. 

Yeah I quite enjoyed Episode 4 too. Perhaps one of the best ones. Something different for the Science officer too.

Episode 5 The Wall? Well I expected people to navigate back through the maze the same way that had gone through. There is only one right way through after all. Could make it so that once the maze has been completed the whole maze appears... But would have to set it up so the hidden dead end enemies dont spawn. Would be a little bit of coding jiggery pokery but do-able.

When you blew up did you veer into a previously unspawned square?


Hope you enjoyed the missions and continue to. Thanks so much for playing [biggrin] .

Yes, that was it--unspawned square appeared. I didn't take the same path back through due to how quickly enemies were closing. I was concerned we'd end up getting surrounded, and was hoping to lead the enemies into mines. Of course, with the new AI they're a bit smarter about that!

Next time, next time...

Arrew, introduced a few old friends to Artemis. Once I got them broken in I got a chance to captain the next in line for me, Episode Three, in a live setting. Keeping noobies in mind and my heart pounding steadily I maintained composure and my very excellent crew reigned successful. Had a great time, thx a lot. Look forward to the next.

Well, I FINALLY got around to playing the first two missions. Gotta say I LOVED what I have played so far, but haven't been able to continue due to our captain graduating from High School and going through Final Exams. The code breaking part was a ton of fun, though our captain had us burn nearly all of our energy looking for the escape pods and not thinking of checking the nebula until 5 minutes into the search...

Glad you liked them?

Perhaps I should have out a hint in but the idea was they were hiding from hostiles. Where were wandering around for five minutes? Sounds fun [wink] .

Hi Charlie,

That means your on number four Needle In A Hey Stack next?... All things considered I think that one might be my favourite, besides episode one. Hope you enjoy it, will keep your science officer busy [smile] .

Litteraly 5k from the ship. Our captain kept ignoring the MASSIVE nebula right next to the ship and saying "THEY MUST BE RIGHT NEXT TO IT! LOOK HARDER!" I don't even know how many times I told him they could be in the nebula...

Perhaps it was a bit mean of me to make them only appear when you enter the nebula, but I didn't want to make it too easy. I wanted the Captain and crew to make an intuitive leap.

Also it makes sense. They don't show up from a distance because they are trying to go unnoticed as they were hiding from the enemy.

Do escape pods move in the RP Community? If not I can understand why there would be some confusion expecting them to be by the ship. But then if they had stayed there they would have been captured.
