===========================================

Join the military and take on missions for the different races to earn money and notority.

1. Enlisting

To join the military, you need to find the applications on the BBS, there is a one of fee to pay to join.
You will also need the police licence for the race you want to join the military with.
The applications will only show up if you currently have the police licence.
Once you have paid the fee and join, you will be able to find missions available from the BBS

2. Military Status

In your ships additional command slots, you will find the view military status command.
This will display the current status with all militarys, as well as your rank and experience points.
Completing missions will earn you experience points to gain you promotion.
Higher ranks will have harder, and better paid jobs available.

3. Black marks

If you commit a bad act against the military, ie, shooting at one of your patrol escorts, you will get a black mark on your record.
After getting 3 blackmarks you will be suspended from active duty for 12 game hours.
During this time you will not be able to get any missions from the BBS.
After getting 5 black marks you will be dismissed from the military.

4. Dismissal

Commiting really bad acts, like killing your patrol leader, or collecting 5 black marks will get you dismissed from the military.
Once dismessed, you have to re apply to get back in. The applications to rejoin will be more rare and will cost alot more for you to rejoin.

5. Missions Available

Patrol:
Available from rank: Cadet
Join up with a patrol and kill enemies in the races terrorities.
Upon accepting, you will have to fly to you target sector and meet up with the patrol leader, once there, you have to follow the leader throught the patrol.
During the patrol, you will most likly encounter enemy attacks, you must destroy the enemy and not let your patrol leader die.
Once reaching the end of you patrol, you will be paid and earn experience points. You will also get a slight boost in notority.

6. Missions for Next Version

Solo Patrol:
You have given a list of sectors, and you must travel to each one and clear out all enemy activity b4fore moving onto the next.

Patrol Leader:
Like the patrol mission, but you will be the leader and you will have a few escorts to help you. This will only be available at higher ranks.

===========================================

Future:

* Take down terrorist installation mission
* Resuce race ship under attack mission
* Other missions i have yet to plan

Nice. So to get in the race military for all races you have to join 5 times (each race) and they are rankd seperately?

Oh, and an idea might be to be part of a strike/raiding force (against xenon sectors, or Khaak if they have the co-ords).

It seems I am already a member of the argon military upon load. While browsing the first batch of BBS offers I noticed a military mission already, is this normal?

withar: well i plan to add quite alot of missions avaialble, some of them like sector takeovers and such, maybe i could also create wars for you to take sides in.

Im also going to add a yaki military you can join to take on various pirate missions.

A dJ: Nope, you shouldn't already be a member of the military, you can check by using the view military status command, it will display what militaries you have joined. The mission currently avaialble is the patrol mission

I thought the mission would display after you've joined the military, my mistake.

Keep 'em coming :thumb_up:

Excellent work! I've just done the patrol mission and it was great.

Couple of points, the escort mission was for the Argon military but the patrol consisted of seemingly random ships from all the races. It just looks a little strange since the existing Argon military uses its own races ships.

Secondly, and more a suggestion for a polishing stage; it would be nice to include things like comm chatter from your fellow pilots to add immersion.

u mean like adding sounds into it ?
i was thinking of that, i think it would be pretty cool to have audio chatter for the missions, but it means actaully creating these sound files :P

the ships are random, but are biased towards the race, so for the argon military, they will mainly use argon ships, but sometimes use others as well, i've done one mission where they were all using different ships, but then i've done several other missions where it was just novas, usually theres alot more chance of it being the races own ships.

the same is true for the yaki attackers, they usually use there own ships, but will sometimes use other random ones

Plus this script goes excellently with LV's Player Response Fleets and race Response Fleets. My universe is becoming a very "eventful" place to be 8)

I think the reward is a bit low for the time the mission takes. I get much more for level 1 (yep still level 1) Bounthunters, Mercenaries, Assassin etc, about 1 mil a piece.

Hmm, how about a bonus for every single enemy you kill? Something like the XI missions?

Cycrow are the spawned enemies race-linked, such that kills will affect race rep?
