Not having to play a challenge you can't download is fair.

I could win all fights by making them undownloadable (now where is that mod...).

There is a reason I don't have Nomads. I am testing the game with DLC missing. I want to see what the experience is like. I didn't know when I bought the game that buying all the DLC made it way easier to play. I am actually doing this for Cliffski and reporting my experience to him.

So it will make the game better for all of us in the long run. Sorry it is causing a small inconvenience now, but it should make it better for all of us.

Lol that doesn't make any sense. It's not like Nomad is as overpowered as Tribe, and you already have Tribe.

Deliberately using modded content and not having official contents are two different things. It wouldn't be fair for me to skip all the Tribe battles by removing tribe.txt from Gratuitous Space Battles\data\installs.

That said, I think you can download Non Nomad battles that has Nomad checked by adding nomads.txt into data\installs, which contains the following.

[config]
path = nomads

EDIT: Ignore NEC-1-9 (deleted) until I get it fixed!!!! - After I came back from work, I tried to fine tune it and found out that the original NEC-1-9 that I posted is giving different results on NEC-1-5 and 6!!!. it must be due to the random dogfighting behaviour.

EDIT:
The game is carshing on me every time I run it!!!, I have to fix this one first.

Humm try deleting all your saves.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Gratuitous Space Battles\userdir\GratuitousSpaceBattles

Move ships, deploy, and web somewhere. If this solves the problem, move one folder at a time back until it stops working again. Then you know which one of the 3 saves is causing problems.

NEC 1-10, Rebel CL. The good thing about not being tribe is they can use armor lure to beat NEC 2.

That said, both NEC 1-9 seem to be removed from the server, so I can't test my latest NEC 1-10 against it. Though I did beat it with an earlier version while it's still up.

NEC 1-11 posted. A straight up improvement from 1-8, I think.

Edit: yeah I didn't see 1-9, so I assumed it was redacted.

Sorry to disapoint you, I give up!
it is getting too hard and very time consuming to beat all 10.

I beat 9 of them then one stands out as unbeatable and so on.
It is a backhole for me, just sucked all my free time and more.

I will stick to SAC. or maybe someone can make a rule to beat previous 4 or 5.

Lol I will get a frigate spam in this challenge eventually. I already manage to beat NEC2 with it using a series of decoys.

These NEC challenges are much harder without using Tribe you know.

Lol Z, I'm having the exact opposite problem. I can't get past your howitzer rush AND a freaking missile spam.

NEC 1-12, Frigate Spam. Took a whole day to get this to work..... Even then I can only beat NEC 2 and 8 by a very thin margin.

You know its really starting to bother me when people take a NEC out of context and send various taunts/bad ratings after beating 1....

And thanks to ZGeneral for the compliment.
