Nice to hear, thanks... :)

If you could remember which conversation, or part of the plot this repeat line was I'll fix it. Not sure about not being able to purchase equipment at ATF Outpost, will look into it.

Im going through the text file now, and I cant seem to spot it. Maybe it was in the Aldrin Missions?

The issue with not being able to purchase the equipment seems very similar to a buyable jump drive I had at the Saturn Research Station. I had added the ware, but didnt put that there should be at least [1] quantity to purchase.

Couldn't see any lines repeated in the conversations or the text file.

I assume it's the upgrades you can't buy from the Outpost? I will fix when I get a minute...

The normal was written to the plot outlined by Frostynso, which was basically to fill the gap of unobtainable ATF ships i.e.Fighters, Capitals being obtained through boarding.

A request was made somewhere for all ATF ships to be obtainable at the end of the plot - hence the Capital Edition.

Hi, I installed the ATF Outpost some time ago. It's the only mod I use that changes something concerning the plot missions. Now I have all the pre-3.0 plot completed. According to the FAQ (and from previous games I know that's right) the "Balance of power" plot should start now. But it does not.

I think that might be because of the ATF Outpost. This mod includes this file called mdfiles.txt:

All the pre 3.0-plots are enlisted there except the "Balance of power" missions. So I think the problem with the plot not starting might be caused by this mod?!?
If I'm right, is there any chance to get that fixed?
Or if there's another problem concerning my game, does anybody know whether it might be caused by ATF Outpost? Thanks.

Second to confirm that the BoP mission hasn't started yet, but I am also running Hub Very Easy Plot.

I was wondering if you had fixed the issue with the equipment at the ATF Outpost or BoP yet in the latest release.

As a side question, would you ever be willing to critique someone else's plots?

Have now fixed these two issues, new files uploaded, link in OP.

I could take a look at your plot if want, just send me the relevant files.

I think eldyranx3 is making a new one for AP together with the
Terran Revitalization Project (TRP)

No, what he said is that you'd be best to ask in the relevant (this) thread, but that it may be odd plot wise...
StarCrack wrote:any plans to fix this up for AP ?
Possibly, removing the plot requirements for it to start is easy, and as far as I remember it doesn't use any of the 'removed' sectors, nor any of the 'war zone'...

However, the whole point of the plot was to make available the previously unavailable ATF ships at the Terran Unknown Sector 1 shipyard, and a Military Outpost in Terran Unknown Sector 3.
AP has all te ATF ships already on the TUS1 Shipyard, and there is a MO in TUS3. So the whole purpose of the plot becomes redundant.
So, at present I see little point in making this plot AP compatible.
