Battle Reviews

CM Benji Tandor



Waiting times are far too long and flying a transport is far from exciting, especially when the AI craft are braindead. Nonetheless, it's novel, the writing's good and the plot's fun !

My twenty-eighth battle in the TIE Corps.

GN Triji Boliv



While I initially was excited at the opportunity to fly a TRN (because, why not?) that excitement quickly faded. Dogfighting AI A-wings in a TRN was not my particular brand of fun, and the score was then further reduced because of the excessive sitting and waiting for FRTs to enter a system, transit, and hyperspace again. If you need a quick battle, this isnt it.

HA Anahorn Dempsey



Although something different flying transports, this battle is very tedious with 3/4 missions taking well over 20 minutes to complete, most of which is waiting time. Even with Tx4 it gets boring....

The Battle1.lfd replaces your original file, so back it up!

0] Make sure you have the EH Shippatch for TIE installed.
- Download and install the Fly Transports patch for TIE according to its own instructions.
1] Double click the .EHM file, the EH Battle Launcher will install the battle.
2] Check the Misc folder in your TIE one for additional material like patches, sounds etc.

This battle is about the "Corporate Division News Group", which makes newspapers. In this battle you get to deliver these:)

Story Line

MISSION 1: "CDNG: Retrieve Paper"
The Galactic Inquisitor is a Popular Newspaper preferred by all traders in this sector for its up to date business reports. The Galactic Inquisitor is printed by the CDNG, which used to be owned by the IBC. The Imperial Broadcasting Company is responsible for most media services in the Emperor's Hammer Territories - like HARA, its radio station.
As a CDNG employee you are fellow responsible for the printing and delivering of the "Galactic Inquisitor" in the Phare System. We encountered a problem halfway through printing today's issue: We ran out of paper. Luckily the CD has a small cache of raw materials near Phare VII so if we're quick we might be able to retrieve that in time for our deadline.

MISSION 2: "CDNG: Clearing the Way"
After we had delivered the last batch of paper the full issue of the "Galactic Inquisitor" had soon been printed and loaded over into CDNG Bulk Freighters for transport deeper into the Phare System - after which we'll use our Transports for the actual delivery runs.
We need to make 3 hyper jumps at predetermined hyper points to get into the populated heart of the Phare System, where most our corporations are. The CDNG and CDNG Staff, Thorin and Haztix, have thus decided to fly in convoy with 2 of the CDNG Picket Fleet Corvettes. Because the news papers are in the freighters this also gives the Transports a chance to give extra cover.

MISSION 3: "CDNG: The Next Step"
The mines that blocked our way on the last jump point were Corporate Division made and deployed by the TIE Corps ISD Vanguard just a few hours ago as Phare "Border Defenses". They claim pirates have been using this route to attack freighters headed for Phare IV.
Coincidentally one of our competitors, "the Vanguard", is printed on that same ship - which sounds a bit too suspicious. Business is rough here in the Outer Rim and they wouldn't be the first to use such tactics. Rest assured that this will be investigated, but please do pay attention at the next jump point - they might try more tricks.

MISSION 4: "CDNG: The last Jump"
The fighters that attacked us at the last jump were Rebel ones, sent after us by the local Rebel Big Cheese: Duke Perlemian, Fleet Admiral of the "Spine Security Force" and born and raised to be the financial mogul he is now. His companies are into everything and via the New Republic's budgets and imaginative banking he can even give himself orders and long term contracts.
One of the Duke's proven business methods, besides "liberating a planet" and then forcing long term repair contracts on them, is using his military forces to bully competitors into going bankrupt, or worse. One of his many business area's is newspapers, among which his own "Nisterstreet Journal"; the second largest financial newspaper in this Sector. We're in trouble....

SCO-TCT-TCS/FA Ender mBind/CS-10/SSSD Sovereign

- Split the battle into 2 separate battles as it was already laid out to be.
- Removed references to the unused TIE x1 patch and added the required Fly Transports patch info. Also removed EPS patch references for battle 1.
- Fixed debriefing message errors in mission 4. Hint messages previously showed up upon a successful mission.
- Fixed minor spelling and grammar errors.
- Rebuilt corrupted mission 2 from scratch. Everything except for the briefing animations and debriefing texts were directly transcribed from the original mission. Attempting to recreate the briefing animations resulted in corrupted files. The original debriefing texts were completely corrupted, so I tried my best imitation of Ender's dry humor.
