Hello guys.

Great mod 10/10
I was wondering if anyone have given a try and how far have u guys gone through the story.
I finally reach the point that i got the mothership. Too bad i couldn't keep the turanic mothership. Can only have 1 mothership at a time.

Did u guys destroy the turanic mothership or capture it?

Huh? First mission is just gather and build till u get to captain rank.
Without captain rank its impossible for u to start investigate the anomaly.
Surprised

Try capturing the Turanic Mothership. However, I think you can have only one Mother Ship at a time (It's been a while since I have played!).

Shocked
Im stuck at the part where i need to get the mothership through an exploding black hole or something.

I got to the point where the keeper cannot follow me, but the assistant told me to 'concentrate power on the shield' or something because the heat is too much for the mothership's hull, and then heat just eat up the hp and blew the mothership up.

I tried looking on research and module construction.. but there is no active shield module for the mothership.

Strategy?

Can you build any other ships which can generate a shield?

I did that. But mothership is too big. Razz
I ended up building about 10 or so of the shield frigates and group it together with the mothership so that it will cover every corner.
I finally finished the first episode.
Cool

Gather and build. It will take some time.
U have to build the ru storage to maximize ru amount, then u need build ru containers so that u can harvest more. For building, u have to build fighters and corvette, and retire them, then build again. Until u get captain rank.

For the first attack inside the nebula, i use interceptor and gunship to target enemy bombers. Ignore the enemy's interceptors and corvettes. Let your carrier deal with them. U must not let enemy bomber take out your carrier's engine or u gonna be dead in the water, and that nebula radiation can kill your carrier.
Then, if u managed to get to the next cutscene, build a marine frigate. Dont max out the frigates, u need the empty space for the incoming ion array frigate. Also u wont be able to keep them. U need to, retire the ion array frigates to get to the next part.

Thank you for your help. Icaptured three Ion Frigates, but i cant control the Mothership. I send RU COntainers, they go inside and dont come back. I try to capture the Mothership with the Marine Frigatte, dosent work. I think i forgott something. The Misdion is not completed and i dont know why.

Build 40 is available, the Turanic MS is no more capturable, also the Ion Array Frigate attack to the MS is more easy.
Also there's a time limit (large, but it will not allow you to become a Captain) to reach the nebula now.
Other additions too, and bug fixing. I recommend to play it again from the beginning.

Is a time limit necessary there.

Perhaps a means of choosing a lower difficulty level might be appropriate?

In build 40 all should be more easy, anyway I consider to add a level of difficulty but I don't want an easy campaign at all

You can upgrade the heat shield in research but only when the shield is active.

Finally beat it, damn it was tough. No spoilers, but that last cut-scene was ominous Cool

Good job guys

Honestly i tried the first mission on the DEV Build 40 and was at first even struggling with the first turanic raider bomber attack, then finally managed to get through - but with bombers and interceptors, also kinetic turrets as your only way of fighting the ion frigates..

Jesus it's just impossible. Why is it REQUIRED to grind for a higher rank just to unlock ships?
I mean, that could be okay, but atleast get a hint or message in to do so. No point in restarting the mission a thousand times before realizing these things.

Also - not being able to skip the cutscenes makes it a real drag.

Yeah I'll chip in as well: Campaign mission 1 is unplayable. I'm up against my unit limit, with carrier fully equipped with turrets, interceptors maxed out (all 6 of them), and knowing the fighters are coming, and they still wreck me every time. One time I got past that part... to then have to fight ion frigates with kinetic turrets... Mothership was blown up before I could kill the second ion frigate.

This is not a good intro to learning the mechanics of the mod, which is presumably the purpose of having a single player mission in the mod.

I must agree unfortunately with Snoman314, although unplayable is too harsh. I think the campaign is the ideal place to show off Complex and to introduce new and old players to this wonderful Mod. Apparently others have had success but I did not think to grind out a level. I understand this may be an area under development and that with more Patrons comes quicker progress .
Beghins, I also wishes to extend our thanks for all your work and my hope that Italy and you especially come through the coronavirus better than ever. Italy has fared through even worse calamities and better times are on their way!
Cent'Anni!
