EH Ship Patch for XvT

Battle Reviews

Solid, doesn't take long to complete and relatively bug free and straightforward.

More tugs in this capture operation. Action is good and there is plenty of dogfighting and PLT hitting, although player is in a T/A meaning the ions are in some GUNs that have to be protected. This mission has a few touches of everything, in the same humorous line for the stolen golden tugs.

A bug free and entertaining enough typical defend/kill mission, with some humor.

A simple, but very challenging mission. It will teach you to have more respect for the Z-95. I'm sure there were a few funny radio messages, but... I was too busy dogfighting to read them all, sorry.

Excellent mission! Bug-free and well done. Besides, the briefing and inflight messages are a must! But Dempsey, who are you trying to cheat? Next time you'll use the VSD Sinister itself to pay your furniture; wouldn't it be more easy for us all to just go and steal stuff for you by the book? ;D

Battle Bug Reports

CM Vanguard88


Carrack Cruiser Bethino has no orders.

CM Vanguard88


Reinforcements do not arrive on hard. Message about reinforcements on the way plays even though none are en route.

CM Vanguard88


After the initial group of Z-95's is destroyed (if you destroy them fast enough) your wingmen revert to flying flight plan, and will not help with the Y-Wings. Their flight plan also intersects with the bottom of the VSD Sinister causing them to collide with it. They will not assist with the reinforcements until they have finished flying the flight plan, which leaves them vulnerable to the second wave of Z-95's.
