New release! XQ1 Platform v1.0

Vince T has been working on Platforms! Stations are an area very rarely seen so this is a treat.

There are 5 flightgroup colours including the Outpost D-34 from TIE Fighter.



Using new Hangar Hook updates there are 3 subtly different Hangar Maps in one INI file = Rebel, Imperial and Neutral.
If you have the Platform set as your Base in a mission the hangar you land on will change depending on your Faction.

You can check out more screenshots that Forceflow made on the Showcase page.



The XQ1 Platform is available to download now!

I appreciate getting fancy to show off the FG colors instead of simple images :thumbs:

I screwed up Vince's great work and missed some files.
The original installer is fixed now.
If you downloaded before this post then please can you redownload it :)

All we need now are the Golan platforms! They look like minecraft stations.

Fantastic, Vince!

I love how it's still the same basic design, just prettier! Great job, and I love the hangar flexibility as well!

Thanky!
Yeah for the PLTs I wanted to stay as close to the source material as possible, the PLT2 probably being the only exception, but we'll get to that in due time :D

Looks great! I signed up to post a possible docking issue with this beauty though. I'm on the "Destroy Hurrim Base" mission and the Assault Trans blows up every time it finishes docking with the platform.

That sounds odd, I'll look into it.

OK, I've just tested that mission and without issue.(Well I had to go invincible, as after 20 years my piloting sucks! :D)

Mine were not so got that taken care of and re-ran it. This time was able to just watch the ATR. It undocked successfully, so I set my sights on the ISD. "ATR Omega 1 has been destroyed". It must have flown into the platform...lol. I think this may be a post for the bugs/mission flow section.

Hi I just played the mission and watched ATR 1 to see what the problem was, it successfully docks with the platform but when it finishes it runs into the platform and blows up, I think the problem is where the ATR is docking because I played the base game with no update and the ATR docks on the top of platform in a different location where after it's done docking it doesn't run into the platform
