[MD] [AP] Allied Assault Mission

Post by Mysterial » Mon, 23. Apr 12, 05:23

In this generic mission, a friendly combat ship (M6 and up, but not Rapid Response ships) asks the player to assist in attacking enemy forces in a nearby sector. This is typically Xenon, Terran/ATF in war sectors, pirates if they show up enough in force, or other races if mods cause greater conflict. Once accepted, you may escort the allied ship to the enemy and assist it or take on the enemies yourself, if you prefer. All ships are "real" (normally in the universe) - this mission does not spawn anything, simply uses what is around. Surviving ships will return to their normal activity a while after the mission ends.

Download Link (GameFront)

Extract the archive to your TC/addon directory with folder information enabled. Or copy the files to the matching directories in your installation directly.

Hasn't been tested with TC, but might work...

Resources used:
-Text file 1175
-Text page 7171 (shared by all my stuff)

------

Updated - changes:
-Fixed mission guidance not being updated if the current guidance target leaves the sector
-Fixed allied ship target not being changed if its current target leaves the sector
-Improved notification when the mission is nearing the end
-Fixed a rare case where the mission would not end correctly unless the player destroyed more ships
-Fixed a couple of text errors

looks really nice! :)
giving it a try

Edit:
Very nice! Helped a Boron thresher lay waste to a split sector :)

Though when the thresher rammed the shipyard and was destroyed
got the name-error message in the missions menu, where the ship name should be. The mission didnt end either, is this a known issue?

No, the mission should time out after a while in the enemy sector, or if you kill all the enemy ships. If you can't find any more ships (no mission guidance) and it doesn't end after another 15 or so game minutes then let me know what sector and any other mods you're running and I can try to investigate.

The text error when the friendly gets blown up is definitely a bug, though, so I'll fix that soon. Thanks.

I believe I've fixed the rare case where the mission doesn't end correctly. I also fixed a few other minor issues.

It should. The enemy check uses whatever the NPC ship's race is hostile to, so IR making the races hostile to each other should cause missions to be generated following those rules.

Thanks again for this :)
confirmed, works good with Improved Races 2.0
tho... things can get tricky when the rapid respons brings in an m2 with assorted m7m, m6, and some... 40 fighters or so
