Star Trek II 'Wrath of Khan' for SFC2 OP
« on: September 25, 2004, 11:32:31 pm »
Hey everyone or anyone who is still around;


I am about 3/4  done with this new mission I have scripted. Unlike the "Wrath of Khan" mission that comes with the game or patch, this mission will have four chapters (missions).

Does this mean there will be four .scr files?? No. It's all in one. When a player completes a chapter he / she will go to the next chapter by simply re-clicking the mission.
In addition, the STII "Wrath of Khan" will also include sound clips taken from the movie that will play during the missions.

Here are the Chapter listings for the mission:

Chapter 1 "Kobayashi Maru"
Chapter 2 "Reunion"
Chapter 3 "Genesis"
Chapter 4 "Wrath of Khan"


The mission is compatible with the standard 2552, OP+3.4, and Chris Jones TNG. 
Hopefully I will have the beta tested by 9.28.04 and released on my B-Day 9.30.04.

Wowzers, new OP missions! You have made my day mate!

Are you planning on making any more, perhaps a Repair Rendezvous? :) :)

Can't wait to try out that mission!

Very cool CV. 

Just curious, how is the chapter-mode implemented?  Did you add a parameter to the sfc.ini?

Yes, there will be more missions but I will announce them when the time comes. ;)

I had to create my own class (using C++ 6.0 ofcourse) that governs the mission (.scr) to switch to the next chapter when a victory condition is met.[/b]

I admit I was thinking about Repair Roundevous and the CUSTOM Monster mission: The Quantum Factor from SFC1 as well as the TNG missions you made. Always worth the wait to try out your new stuff!

Did I mention how much I LOVE reading posts by CV?

SFC:OP keeps getting better and better thanks to folks like CV.

Wow  :D,

Thanks for the support!

The STII Mission was completed yesterday and is currently in testing phase.

The ball is in the beta testers court right now. So far its looking like 9/30 or 10/1 for release.

This is nothing like the "Wrath of Khan" mission that comes with the game.

I developed "StarTrek II Wrath of Khan" from the ground up to include 4 Chapters based on the movie as well as adding sounds edited from TMP.
The overall feel is that you are playing the movie and not a simple skirmish taking place in a nebula.

This is not the type of mission where you just have to blow up a "Not so smart AI" to win.
You must be observant of Comm Messages, Transporter Items, Deep Scans, and the Story Dialog if you intend to win.

This current release supports either the Standard 2552 Patch version of OP or the OP+3.4 mod.
A Star Trek II "Wrath of Khan" release for Chris Jone's UAW will be available by next week.

No models or any editing needed to play this mission. You simply download and install. The installer will automatically find your SFC OP directory so you don't even have to browse.
Recommended Game Play Speed is 7-8.


Here is an overview of each Chapter along with a screenshot.
*Note: Screenshots are taken playing STII "Wrath of Khan" using Firesoul's OP+3.4 Mod.*   


Chapter 1: Kobayashi Maru - If you are unfamiliar with the history of this "No Win" Scenario I recommend that you look it up at www.startrek.com or refer to the Star Trek Encyclopedia if you have one laying around.



Chapter 2: Reunion - In this chapter you will be re-acquainted with your "Old Friend", Admiral James T. Kirk.   


Chapter 3: Genesis - Pay a visit to the Regula 1 Science Station and let them know you mean business.
*NOTE: The Chris Jones UAW Mod will have the actual Regula 1 Mod used in TMP.*



Chapter 4: Wrath of Khan - Can you command the Enterprise just as well as Kirk did during this battle?



When you successfully complete a chapter you will be able to play the next one by re-selecting the mission.
If you Fail, you will have to play it again or even worse (depending on what you do) you will be bumped back to the very 1st chapter.
I hope someone gives this a shot, a lot of work has gone in to the making of this mission and this is my last TMP / SFB based mission I will be developing.

God Speed!

Absolutley AWESOME set of missions CV, can't wait to see what's next!

Do you reckon a ST 6 pack is feasible, with the inital Ent-D7 incident, the Excelsior vs Klingon Battlecruisers in 'Flashback' and the final showdown - perhaps with scripted damage to ships until you launch a probe which forces the ship to decloak?

Just a thought.

Please don't leave us.... You just may be our only hope to get Repair Roundevous into SFC: OP...

Besides, aren't you making your TNG missions TOS/SFB/TMP friendly?

Thank you again for your maginificent scripts.

I do not plan on leaving "yet" as far as mission scripting goes. I was saying that this is the last TMP/SFB based mission I will be doing for OP.
Currently, I am working on an extensive mission pack for Chris Jones UAW Mod which will include a reprise of some familar TNG OP Missions (From the W359 MOD) in addition to new missions.

When the time is right,  I will announce the line up of TNG missions for the UAW Mod.

Thanks for the input ;)

By the way, have you managed to "Win" the "No Win" Kobayashi Maru scenario?

Let me know

 RED ALERT: Mission Spoilers

;D Score Card so Far:

Chapter One: Kobyashi Maru. My XLUX is the Klingon Academy Altair Cruiselines ship:

http://www.the-tcs.net/_hosted/atheorhaven/html/userfiles/ships/trek/sfc2/ka_liner_sfc2.zip

If the script used the STOCK D2 ship models the Kobyashi Maru should be the FFA Lotus Flower....

http://www.sub-odeon.com/stsstcsmua/other_govts/commercial_lotusflower.html 

I'm not complaining; for the number of civilians quoted being on board it actually makes sense to have the XLUX be the model. BTW: I use the TMP  FASA Trek Chandley as my "Enterprise" and the FASA Trek D-10 Riskadh are the Klingons that show up in this scenario. How did I do? [MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL voices] "Run away" and saved the Enterprise from being destroyed.

Chapter Two: Reunion. I'm using non-canon ships in my game, the TMP FASA Trek Loknar Refit USS Phobos is my USS Reliant. I had  a lot of fun with it. I get to the "Times up" part and the Enterprise blew up when I was at range 2.52 I then CTD. The next time I played I stayed within range 5 and completed the mission.

Chapter Three: Genesis. I'm stuck after the part you get out of sensor range of the Enterprise after having the away team sent to Regula One [I use Atrahasis' fixed version; thank you Atheorhaven] and the planetoid is one of SFC3's red/brown cratered moons. So that's where I am at the moment.

I am having a blast!

Thanks again CV!

Really great job! :) However I was wondering,will there be any revisions? If so, Could a planet appear after the Reliant explodes?
In any case, I am really looking forward to any future releases that you might create.  :) Thank You

Yes, the revision is already in the works. I am not going to elaborate much on whats all going to be in it but expect a "Bonus" mission if you complete Chapter 4 "Wrath of Khan".

Thanks for the input  ;)

Cool idea. "Planet Fire" would seem to fit well.
