BCM War Stories & Experiences

Recommended Posts

Thanks for all the advice guys.Well anyway I managed to land semi-safly on the surface of Earth at the exspense of all my friendly ships in orbit. I lanched a probe just as I went down and I can still access it from where I am, but when I go to the area in which I took a station over I can't access its shuttles or anything else. Probly because my comms are down and I do not have Fleet C&C.

Luckily I have the materails needed to get launch control and comms back so I should be ok once that is done. Although I did make a really rough landing on the surface(I forgot just how big a StormCarrier was!) my ship is still pretty much intact. Out of my 40 some odd personal I have about 30 of em in the medibay and the others are working hard to get my CC off the ground.

I was wondering if it was possible to raid and get materails from the destroyed outposts on Earth. Its kinda creepy sitting there knowing that everything on that planet is dead and ur the cause. Almost makes me feel bad....almost. Unless I can access the station I took over im gonna have to wait till my launch control comes back up before I can leave and then Ill have to head back to a friendly station for repairs,restocking,crew and to get a new armada of ships to continue my invasion but until that time I must stay on the surface and wait for my two engineers to fix my comms and launch control. Its gonna take 45 minutes per system, but thats not nearly as long as its gonna take to repair everything at a station.

I was looking over my damage and not any one of my systems is at or above 60% operating status and most of them arnt even working(launch control,comms,navitron,etc...).

O and I tried to take the advice of somebody in here and that was to HJ out of the system well I tried that. First I got one of my decreped escorts in a tow and targeted a jump gate for an escape but when I tried to jump nothing happend then I checked and my HJ status and it was stuck at 60?? So that made that impossible. Well after my HJ failure I targetted Earth and was about to establish planetfall when all of the suddon the ship I was towing exploded and about three missles went stright smack into the side of my badly cripped Storm carrier, thus changing my alert status from red to evac and cause the reactor to start leaking, but theres noway im gonna bail on my ship in a terran infested area so I ignored it and limped on toward Earth and as was said they did not pursue very far because my escorts where keeping em busy. I belive the last escort was destroy just as I made planet fall on that, now thanks to me, lonley uninhabited hunk of rock known as Earth.

My plans are pretty simple fix her up and get her out and I should be able to get back on track in a matter of hours.

Sorry if I seem alittle self endored in this but thats only becasue I AM! I will discuss fleets and talk more to ppl when I get back to a friendly station and have time to relax. In the mean time you have my thanks for the help I really appreicate all the advice and support iv got on this.

And of course once again thanks SC for making such a kick a** game and for supporting it. I don't know many other game devlopers who ever even visit there forums let alone respond in them.

O and for those of u who are getting bored with this game like I was, which probly is noone. I whould suggest doing this. It really is one hell of an experiance.

So far this has proven that no other petty race can stop the Gammulans. And as Iv said before GAMMULANS WILL RULE THE UNIVERSE!!! On my game at least.

uhm right, don't you have to get outta Sol first?

Anyway, ISS, Starpath or Earthstar get their trigger. You'll see just how painful death can be. Keep watching the clock.

I hope my tow shuttle doesnt get destroyed or ill be right back where I started

I don't see why everybody doesnt do it go on an invasion i mean.

I used playmod to get C&C becasue I was getting bored. Id suggest bringing as many ships and supplies as possible BELIVE ME! O and also have a shuttle on stand by not to for from you incase u get disabled and belive me u will.

Anyway good luck and yes mines are good. I use em everytime I go to battle.

Well as of right now my comms are back up and iv managed to find one of my shuttles that I had land on the moon before the battle and I have given it orders to tow me off this rock and back to a friendly station. The shuttle has not yet arrived but what iv got from the probe theres only like 2 ships in the area so it shouldnt be a problem. My situation is pretty much the same as before I just managed to get the reactor to stop leaking and get my crew back on track. Launch control is still down as well as many other systems. However my hopes are high that within the next few hours ill be back to the invasion with a new armada and a newly repaired Storm carrier.

Cmdr Viper, now that you have randomed earth what will be your other objectives? the taking over of every station in all quadrants? Or is that a little too much.

Survival!!!, that is... he is now being pursued by Terran forces, both Galcom And Earthcom... remember that when you random a planet, its race will spend a highnumber of resources into kicking your ass

Good luck Viper

May Resnig not be with you!

You guys won't belive this! I had a shuttle come down and tow me off the surface of earth and then I set its course for a nearby system with a base in it. Well anyway along the way there wasnt much more then 2 enemy ships in the area but I guess they called for back-up because before I managed to make it to the jump gate the klaxon sounded and there were 6 to 7 red dots on my radar and three of em where at the jump gate waiting. First I thought about fighting it out but then id relized that whould be suicide due to the fact that I had only two missles and no pta system or main gun. With shields alittle bit over 30% and my hull/armor at 45% I neared the jump gate expecting the worst trying despertly to get the cloak system back on-line. Seeing as that system whould be done minutes after dropping out of hyper space(which it whould only take seconds for my destruction)and the ships that where waiting on me where way out of my league, I started thinking about evacuating the ship. What I saw next suprised yet relived me. On my rader where about 4 more dots and when I clicked on em they where insurgents and where attacking the terran forces therefor making it possible for me to make an escape. I made it out with out any damage thanks to those guys.

Well anyway iv docked with a friendly station and am almost done with most of the repairs. The station did not have enough personnal to fill all the gaps but iv got a pretty good amount as of right now. The station is also very limited in space craft so im gonna have to head back farther in order to get a good number of ships.

As far as Cruis.Ins question goes, I plan on taking whats left of sol(stations,planets,etc...)and then ill decide on continuing on the the next system or not. So far its been really hard and systems seem to be failing more often due to the fact that they are not fully repaired anymore but at 70-80% all the time. Im gonna try and keep going until im destroyed or the universe is mine. As if right now me getting destroyed seems more to reality then me taking over a universe infested with hostile ships and I only with about 20, but ill keep you guys posted up till the bitter end.

And once again the insurgent(ies) ruin Galcom's day ... Galcom's day of revenge....

I shall do the same but against the gammulans. I'm having a massive planetary bombardment against the insurgents on the solar system to work my way up to supreme commander (or at least strategic comm.)

See you in MP

My story isn't as good...I cheated with 1.0.07 and I got 100% stats on my whole crew, all artifacts, fleet C&C, and all that. Well, I think I only have like 2 pilots who are still 100% AI, I'm flying a Stormcarrier, and well, I used uh...well, I did that instantanious jump thingy to Earth, Randomed it, destroyed Galcom HQ , and I captured er...the moon one(Hey, I'm a Gammulan, I dont need to memorize the names of the stations there...just need to know which ones they are ) Anywho, got repaired, and it's not as fun as trompin through the galaxy with a fleet of 40 some odd ships...oh I should try that. Go through the Credian Quadrant, then the Terran, then finish off with Syrion quadrant...oh the fun...the universe full of only Gammulan's, and Valkaries...or whoever else decides to join us...

I might spare the Insurgents, if they do not attack my fleet, because they helped you out Viper

Oh, SC, you are mean. Teasing us like that...hehe...another incentive(I hope that is the word I'm looking for) to get us to by BCG...well...I'm gunna try to get it...mines as devastating as RANDOMs....hehehe

Well im stuck in SOL. As I had planed the enemy is being pretty ruthless and has crippled my once proud fleet. As for my ship its holding its own. I thought thered be less terrans in the area after taking out galcom but boy was I wrong. I had two Firestorm flying aganist me at once, but i managed to beat em and continue. I was in pluto when a massive fleet of enemy vessles jumped in and because most of my ships where still in the Earth region I had to retreat. Well they followed me and it was one bloody battle. I lost about 9 of my ships and sustained modarte damage to my CC. None of my pilots died but there ships where pretty beat up and are grounded till repaired.

Im just keeping everyone updated.

Playing as Galcom. More things to do single player. Like kill Gammulans.

In this scenario...if I'm going to remain Insurgent for multiplayer...wanted to test my main bases defenses.

Suffice to say they is proper defenses.

I gathered up a fleet of the newest best and brightest. I would say roughly 20 ships, consisting of Megarons, Nightstars, Mk2, Mk1, Mk3, Sunflash. From GalcomHQ and Wraith and Genesis. About 10 fighters, plus more from the carriers included.

The modest fleet moves out

Led by the GCV-Victory(Questar) The Fleet presses onto Sygan Starstation.

The fleet has arrived at Sygan and is preparing to engage the enemy. Small enemy resistance jumps out to meet the Fleet at the entrance to Bernards Star in a delaying action to give Sygan time to prep for combat. Mortal combat.

Seen here is a shuttle coming to tow something disabled around there.

The HyperJump to Sygan starsation. Enemy has been engaged... it's a mess in there sir. The Galcom Fleet is sustaining heavy casualties and damage...those damn all powerful bright laser beams emitting from the Starstation might have something to do with it.

Ah a deceptive shot. A battle still rages all around. I guess the shot froze it at a time when the lasers died down. But it was a fury!

A Galcom Battlecruiser sweeping in to get a closer peep at the lightshow.

I said to myself...20 ships. One station. Forgetting to factor in the stations defense ships...capital ships and fighters. A station by itself maybe would have been a bit easier...but not with all this fighter support

The Battle is won...but at what cost...the entire Galcom FLeet has been destroyed and or disabled...the lone intact survivor being the flagship of the fleet the GCV Victory. With about 30 fighters or so hot in pursuit. You can see some of the lasers coming after the ship.

And with that the Victory makes good her escape...Sygan lies destroyed...an entire Galcom fleet crippled...any survivors were towed by what shuttles could make it out.

What did we learn from this expedition? we needed more ships Scotty!

I latched onto a disabled fighter and towed him out. Maybe Galcom will overlook the 15 destroyed ships for that good deed...

You should have been more stealthy and went in alone cloaked. Then attacked the station and once its destroyed or crippled bring in the fleet.

I myself very rarly did this I was into the whole all out attack thing too. Iv lost a total of about 60-70 ships becasue of that. So for now on im going to try a more stealy approch.

Still looked cool though.

Sounds fun, as to viewing the images...just open them in a new browser tab/window (CTRL+Left Click - Mozilla, Right Click|New Window - IE) and when the lying page about errors opens, highlight the URL in the address bar and hit enter. Works everytime.
