X3 Reunion and Daddy chase mission problem.

Post by Hank001 » Sat, 17. Mar 18, 07:20

Sometimes using the mods creates problems with the storyline missions, we all should know this.

In the case of that dratted ateroid tunnel chase there is one way to insure it ends with failure as soon as it starts after the cut scene.

That's starting it in any khak ship you happened to pick up at that neat shipyard at cloudbase southwest.

Go into this mission in one and you won't get 2 inches before it's the scene of you getting popped and the dreaded flying The End showing up and comicly bouncing off the sides of the tunnel.

Advice on ships to start with not forthcoming from me, simply a word of warning: Don't start it in a khak ship.

Knowing a thing or two about game triggers it don't take much to figure out why I was immediatly failing the mission.

If you're really having trouble with this mission go to my post in the cheats thread, but unless you're over 50 I'd try it without cheats. :D

This isn't a Tech Sp issue so I'm moving to the X Trilogy Universe (gameplay) forum.

I got you. Sorry I picked the wrong place.

Edit: Just to support the contention here I tried it again with Khak scout scout. Same result, instant mission fail.

I wonder if the mission is scripted so as to fail when any Kha'ak ship catches you up--and if you're IN a Kha'ak ship, then obviously they catch up instantly?

That's exactly what I was thinking.
Obviously it's not set up to distinguish
player ships. A Khak is a Khak.
The trigger event happens the
intant I entered. There's an ipso facto there.

What "neat shipyard" would that be? It's certainly not in the vanilla game. And discussion of modded gameplay should be confined to the S&M forum.
Having an Acronym Attack? See the Ego FAQ. Also now for Terran Conflict and Albion Prelude.
