O hai.

  • Lolcats Goober?

Hey, quick question. I thought just the Malta appears during the last mission, I even used cheats to keep all 3 alive and only the Malta ever appeared. Is it because of a bug? A glitch? User:grunt minion22

  • Maybe the other two, if surviving, were assisting a different convoy? User:Hippo
    • It's been a while since I've played that mission, but I'm pretty sure all three of them can make it through. Certainly they all have true arrival cues and red-alery-carry-status flags. - Goober5000 22:49, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
      • I got to the last 2 missions, I did keep all 3 Aeolus cruisers alive. Only the Malta appeared. I swear. grunt minion22 3:26pm, 23 June 2009.
        • Bleh. Okay, file a mantis bug; I need to investigate this. - Goober5000 00:58, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

  • Ok, how come you reverted the note I added that Iota wing is scripted to arrive after Kappa 3 is blown up. Like with the Malta thing from above, I used cheats to keep Kappa 3 alive thoughout the mission and Iota wing only showed up a few seconds after I issued the ~k (instant kill) on Kappa 3.

    • Because Iota wing isn't scripted to arrive after Kappa 3 is blown up. Look at the mission file. Iota wing has three possible arrival triggers, none of which have anything to do with Kappa 3. -- Goober5000 00:55, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
      • It's more straightforward to just extract the mission from the main VP file and look at it in FRED. As you just saw, one-time observations aren't very accurate. - TopAce 23:21, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
        • Roger, just did that and it showed that me that they spawn shortly after alpha 2 dies and the other 2 warp in SEXP. Sorry for the inconvince - Grunt minion22 6:360pn, 17 December 2009
