Wing Commander Prophecy: Simulator


Level 0

Basic Flight Training
Author: Commodore Christopher “Maverick” Blair
Overview: Follow your instructor’s orders to gain familiarity with your Confederation fighter craft, its controls, and its basic weaponry.
Instructor Comments: In the interest of teaching the value of humility, I welcome all hot-dog pilots to try their luck.
Instructor: Welcome to the TCS Midway combat simulator. This system is comprised of several training details for Confed Academy pilots of varying levels of experience. This first mission encompasses basic flight and fighting tactics. The white arrow on your forward view is pointing to the first navigation buoy. Turn your ship to face this NAV point. Once it is in front of you, the NAV point should appear as a white cross. Fly to within 100 klicks of the buoy. Face the NAV buoy and fly to within 100 klicks of it to continue this mission.
Instructor: Good. Now, turn your ship to face NAV point two. You will, again, need to fly to within 100 klicks of the NAV buoy. Since it is a bit further away, use your afterburners to increase your speed. Face the NAV buoy and fly to within 100 klicks of it to continue this mission.
Instructor: Excellent. Now, stop your ship. Use the minus key to decrease your set speed to zero. When you stop, we’ll do some basic target practice. Use the minus key repeatedly to bring your ship to a complete stop.
Instructor: There is now a target nearby. Use the T key to select this target. Watch for changes in your ‘Heads Up Display’. The selected target will appear, along with sensor data, such as alignment, range, shield strength and armour level. The cursor in the centre of your forward view will point you towards the target. Turn your ship to face the target and increase your speed to close in. Get within 20 klicks of the target.
Instructor: Here is a new target. Use T to select it, and then use the L key to lock the target. Target lock will engage the Inertial Target Tracking System as well as an advanced sensor package which will allow you to identify the contents of cargo boxes. Using your ship’s weapons, destroy this buoy. Press G to cycle through available guns. Press F to select full guns. Use the trigger on your joystick or the spacebar on your keyboard to open fire.
Instructor: The next NAV point is more than a hundred thousand klicks away. Flying manually to this point can take a very long time. To avoid this use the autopilot feature. Press A when you see the AUTO light and your ship will fly automatically to NAV 3.
Instructor: Excellent. Now, stop your ship. Use the minus key to decrease your set speed to zero. When you stop, we’ll do some basic target practice. Use the minus key repeatedly to bring your ship to a complete stop.
Instructor: Press the T key to select the Kilrathi ship. Use the L key to lock the target. The Inertial Target Tracking System (or ITTS) provides a green diamond which you can use as a bullseye when firing your guns and missiles. Close in on the Kilrathi drone. Turn your ship if the drone moves from your forward view. Line up the centre of your viewscreen and the green ITTS diamond and open fire. If the target gets away from you, use the TAB key to afterburn towards it. Approach the drone to begin combat training.
Instructor: Congratulations! You have successfully completed this simulation detail.

Level 1

Basic Offensive Strategies
Author: Commodore Christopher “Maverick” Blair
Overview: Patrol several navigation points with the aid of your instructor. Engage a variety of hostile craft while attempting to protect Confederation vessels.
Instructor Comments: The key to co-ordinated fighting is watching out for your team. Be swift, but mind the asteroids…
Instructor: Welcome to the TCS Midway combat simulator. This detail will expand upon your existing knowledge of manoeuvring, targeting and weapons control. A Confederation transport and her escorts are being harassed by a wing of Kilrathi raiders. Autopilot to NAV 1 and assist the Confed forces.
Instructor: The escort’s job is to ensure the safety of the cargo craft. These escort fighters have very little experience, and will require your assistance.
Instructor: You will now rendezvous with a detachment of friendly fighters at NAV 2.
Instructor: A pair of light fighters have located you and are en route to your position. Lead them to NAV 3 for a more lethal round of enemy fighters. Use autopilot to reach NAV 3. Your wingmen will follow.
Instructor: Kilrathi presence is heavy in this area. Take out every enemy ship, and be careful of asteroids.
Instructor: Another transport is trying to make its way through NAV 1. They are under attack by Kilrathi raiders, and have lost their escorts.
Mahburg: Mayday! Mayday! This is the TCS Mahburg! To any ships in the area: we need assistance!
Instructor: Your NAV computer has re-selected NAV point one. Go there to assist the Confed transport!
Instructor: You saved the TCS Marburg! Excellent work! Congratulations on completing this simulation detail.

Level 2

Defensive Strategy and Escort Techniques
Author: General James “Paladin” Taggart
Overview: Defend Confederation cargo from an enemy attack. Face a variety of Kilrathi fighters as you attempt to lead a friendly transport to safety.
Instructor Comments: A truly great pilot does not need to take unnecessary risks.
Instructor: Welcome to the TCS Midway combat simulator. This detail has been engineered to enhance your situational awareness and to improve your response to enemy resistance. Autopilot to NAV 1 and clear the area of any hostile craft. Once the area is clear, await the arrival of a Confederation transport.
Instructor: Keep all enemy fighters away from the transport.
Instructor: Excellent work! Now, autopilot to the next NAV point. The transport will follow you there and attempt to jump once you have cleared the NAV area of any hostile craft.
Instructor: Excellent work! Congratulations on completing this simulation detail.

Level 3

Heavy Weapons Training
Author: General James “Paladin” Taggart
Overview: Familiarise yourself with the offensive capabilities of a Confederation bomber, using your missile ordnance against more agile Kilrathi fighters.
Instructor Comments: A bomber pilot’s survival requires superior timing and knowledge of his craft’s capabilities.
Instructor: Welcome to the TCS Midway combat simulator. This detail focuses on offensive manoeuvres. Intelligence reports show a small detachment of Kilrathi heavy fighters awaiting a transport jump at NAV 1. Autopilot to intercept them. Once you take care of the scout wing, await the Kilrathi transport.
Instructor: Now, head to NAV 2. Engage Kilrathi fighters and corvettes. Again, let none escape.
Instructor: Excellent work! Congratulations on completing this simulation detail.
