Hi all. I was trying a "do everything" pilot, or as near to it as I can get (I've never been able to complete more than one Strand, though there are people who seem to have done this somehow--any tips?).
But where I stand now is pretty strange. I'm a Role Model at both Earth and Voinia, and most of their associated worlds. However, Valos and Aludra both have me as a criminal and I get attacked on sight there. This happened as soon as I helped complete Paaren Station--instantly and inexplicably, I became a criminal there at that point. It's so screwed up that the UE sent me with an honor guard for something, and the UE ships that were already there got in a fight with the UE ships that were assigned as my honor guard.
The systems listed as UE Frontier government also still have me as a criminal, and doing missions up through destroying the Voinian dreadnought and doing Frontier Express missions and such doesn't seem to affect this.
Even dominating Outpost Topel and beating the dreadnought did not cause the Voinians to dislike me, though.
I helped the Voinians destroy Kelmaon, but when I landed on Emalghia, they told me I was still welcome, and I hoped to start that missions string, but no go. I tried dominating it and its moons, but still no missions (how does being a Usurper affect getting missions?). Any way to still get them?
I'm in the Free Huron string, but here's the problem: I am currently assigned to find a pirate ship in the Yelts system, but it is never there. This may have something to do with the fact that Yelts system is currently uninhabited, as Gorky was destroyed in a mission string I did previously. This mission can't be aborted.
Worst of all: I was in the Find Anna Balashova missions, but when I was supposed to board the Nadir to retrieve her, the stupid Matt Burch ship flew in and blew it up (I kid you not). It said the mission was failed, and now I just get nothing: no fail text on any planet bar I can find or anything, no new related missions from anywhere It just left me hanging. Anyone know of anything I can do to set this straight? I don't even know how this would make a lot of sense, since I see UE Cruisers around already...
Any ideas, comments or suggestions? Is it normal for the story to get this twisted in on itself? BTW, I'm playing Override for Nova, but with no plugins other than a graphical one.
