Bug/Annoyance - Gemini Manned Pre-requisites

Post by Drewpan » Thu Aug 21, 2014 2:19 am

Hi Guys,

Why are the Pre-requisites for a Manned Orbital mission in Gemini -

Unmanned Sub-orbital
Manned Sub-orbital
Unmanned Orbital

Historically two Gemini Missions were launched prior to Gemini 3 with Gus and John Young.
Gemini 1 was an Unmanned Orbital flight that was intentionally destroyed on Re-entry, and
Gemini 2 was a Sub-orbital flight to test the heat shield.

While it could be argued that both an Unmanned Sub- and Orbital flight should be a pre-requisite,
a Manned Sub-Orbital Gemini Flight was never flown and should NOT be a pre-requisite.

For the purposes of the game, I think that an Unmanned Sub-orbital Mission is sufficient for a
pre-requisite as it is likely I will launch another unmanned Orbital mission just to get my hardware
reliability up anyhow, but it "might" punish the player too much if they are racing a deadline and
want to push a mission to meet a Goal.

My thoughts anyhow.

Cheers!

Andrew (Drewpan)

Hello Andrew,

Thanks for your feedback. I think this one falls into the same category than the post you made about the Apollo program. Maybe we can apply the same solution and ditch the requirement for the manned sub-orbital flight but increase the penalization for an unachieved 'Man in space'? This way we cover the scenarios where players skip Mercury and dive straight into Gemini (which I think it's going to be a very popular strategy!) What do you think?
