Battle Reviews

I enjoy this concept, and did enjoy this mission. I think there's some tactical issues in its design that lowers it a bit for me, unfortunately. But still a fun one!

Extremely annoyed with this mission. It is really a challenge to complete on hard, which I don't mind, but why is that rebel FRG just hanging there with no orders? Even more importantly, why are there two Lambda shuttles with Imperial IFF hypering in and attacking me!? And when I destroy them I get negative points for destroying that craft on my own side?! And than they hyper in again for more negative points :(

I thoroughly enjoyed this battle, even if I never played the original X-Wing missions to recognize this plot.

I regret that I can't give a better rating, as I find the concept of converting the original XW missions interesting. But the difficulty is very imbalanced. Means that is is frustrating on hard and boring on normal. Also, some of the XWs were just going in circles instead of attacking anything.

Welcome to the 'X-Wing in TIE Fighter' project!

My aim is to adapt many of the Missions and Tours of Duty from the original X-Wing game, making them playable in 'TIE Fighter'. 

Each mission is re-created as closely as possible to the original, and then carefully altered to present the missions from the 
Imperial point of view. Although this means each mission has a different outcome from that presented in the X-Wing game, efforts 
have been made to ensure the 'timeline' remains the same. Significant events that impact the wider Star Wars timeline still occur, 
although perhaps in a slighly different way. This has been done to create a series of enjoyable, winnable missions that will not, 
ultimately, break the EH's own background!

Each Mission, Free of otherwise, will be as close to the original as possible if the game is set to 'Ewok' (Easy). 
As the difficulty increases, so does the amount of required adaptation. In X-wing, one or two Rebel fighters would destory waves 
of Imperial fighters - whereas one or two Rebel fighters would be easy pickings for even a single player-controled TIE Fighter. 
So, additional flight groups are added, given missiles, and so on.

The Free Missions

The optional/training battles in X-Wing took the form of simulated versions of missions flown by Rebel pilots. Here, those simulations 
have been adapted for Imperial use. Now, you can fly those missions again, but this time in service to the Empire! 

Many of the training missions will be presented as a TIE Fighter Free Mission.

This is the second such mission!


This mission recreates the first Imperial encounter with a Rebel Pilot called Keyan Farlander, who would go on to fly in many of 
the pivotal battles of the Civil War.
In this, his first combat mission, he succesffuly captured important Imperial data from the Corvette Talon, before making good his 
escape. You must stop this from happeneing!
