Public Release of Microsoft Freelancer [bass] Intel

Based on the updates to the 24/7 Freelancer Universe (FLU) Mod, I've decided to declassify some of the [bass] intelligence videos regarding trade runs. The transports are now less capable due to re-balancing in the new mod, so these results are not exactly repeatable. The Omicron Minor to California Route has been lost altogether, as it was deemed "too profitable." However, the other routes should still be effective--just not as effective as they once were.

We were discussing this release prior to the mod update, and the videos were going to come out soon anyway. I simply have found the time to post them.

Cardamine Run via Alaska using the Old Large Transport: January 16, 2012 (812AS) ID# 8120116

In this recently declassified [bass] intelligence video (ID# 81201161), we demonstrate and analyze the trade run from Omicron Alpha to New York via Alaska. The ship used is the old version of the Large Transport (LT), which was based at Omicron Beta.

In the August 2012 Version of the FLU Mod, the capacity of the modded transports have been reduced, as well as their armor. (Vanilla Transports are unchanged.) The route is still the same but it might be a bit tougher and not quite as profitable.

I may retry the run with the new ships and see how it goes. (Or, that can be your homework assignment! ;-)

Meet the Pyro--Everything Made Clear and Nothing Answered

If you haven't seen it yet, well it's right up there! Click it. Spoilers follow if you don't.

As expected, Valve made "Meet the Pyro" in such a way that the Pyro's history, identity, sex, sexuality, and anything else to do with gonads is once and for all utterly unresolved. Point to whatever evidence you want and believe whatever theory makes you happy. Robot, supermodel, zombie, or even Charlie Sheen: you are free forever to believe in what you believe. And that's as it should be. Customizing the experience of the game for each player takes on more forms than hats.

What did we learn for sure? We learned that the Pyro is disconnected from reality--almost completely. Whether this is due to insanity, drugs, his glasses, or some combination is up to you to decide. Again, another way to customize the experience. But he's definitely living in a world where My Little Pony would be right at home.

The opportunities for humor are pretty vast. I was playing as a Pyro on Doomsday and toasted someone on the platform, who started to complain profusely--though I think he may have been kidding. I responded with "I was only trying to make you happy." His repsonse? "Well, I don't appreciate your kind of happiness, Sir!!!"

Perhaps you had to be there but I thought it was funny.
