In the mission "Proving Grounds" of Freespace 2's base campaign, there's this one middle-class enemy ship that flies in, designation "Tiamat". And, well...it's a pain to destroy. The game insists that I have to stay within scanning range of the ship in order for my allied ship to fire its lasers at the Tiamat, but on one test run I spent the entire mission inside this nice little cove where one of its subsystems was conveniently located firing torpedos into its hull. If that's not proximity, I don't know what is.
Here's a diagram representing my woes:
ALLIED SHIP TIAMAT (NOT DEAD) ________ | |===============\________________________ | |===============/| | | | | __ | |______| | |_| ME (practically | |________inside ship)__|
Is there some kind of trick I'm missing here or something? How do I destroy the Tiamat?
