"Triple Agent

Look, all I want to do is to work for all three Strands, or at least the Azdgari, then capture a Dreadnaught, then play through the Voinian mission string. Can someone tell me how to rig EVO (for EVN) to make this possible?

Imagine a Dreadnaught launching a bunch of Azdara fighters. That's what I want. But my plug-in making skills are rusty. What must I do?

I didn't realize there were so many ships in EVO you can't purchase... http://www.oocities....5482/ships.html
What the heck? I vote for hax.

Wow, that's a lot of bit expressions to rewrite. Lemme get back to you on that.

Edit: Try this. Assuming I did everything right, this plug-in will allow you to go through the entire UE string and still go back and do the Voinian string. It will also let you get all 3 Strand intros without needing to exploit a little bug that lets you do it anyway.

Keep in mind, though, that the 3 Strand endings are mutually exclusive and certain systems change in each string, so you won't be able to complete all 3 to 100% in a single pilot.

Also keep in mind I didn't include any fast and easy way to make the Voinians like you after you capture a Voinian Dreadnought. That part's all you.

Wow, that was fast. You're awesome! Thank you!

Yep, I remember that.

Oh, I wouldn't have it any other way.

FYI without any plug-ins in EVO you can do the UE string, the Voinian String, the Igadzra string, and your choice of either the Zidagar string or the Azdgari string.

It's been a while so I don't remember exactly step-by-step which missions to accept in which order, but basically you accept one intro mission, then accept another before completing the first. I don't know if the EVN port still lets you do it, but EVO definitely does. I'm pretty sure for the Strands if you accept the first Igz mission then you have time to accept either the first Zid (and complete it) or the first Azd (I don't remember whether to complete Azd or Igz first.)

I know I had a pilot with an Enhanced Arada (the mission ship with ridiculous shield recharge) equipped with a Plasma Siphon and a UE cloaking device among other things, escorted by six Voinian Dreadnoughts (the easiest way to capture them is, with the Observe V. Dreadnought mission active, to buy a V. Cruiser, capture something else so the Cruiser becomes your escort, repeat. Note that having escorts makes jumps take more days, so beware of time-critical missions.)

There's no way to do all three strands without a plug-in, but all the Zid string gets you is like 10 or 20 tons of extra free space. Sure it's nice, but the Enhanced Arada and the rest of the Azd upgrades are way better, and the Plasma Siphon from Igz is both a fuel scoop and a weapon.

The Zidagar also get you better jamming and Phased Pulse Beams, so that's worth something, right?
