I like the overall game, so this is more feedback than anything.

In that mission, you HAVE to keep the ISD Majestic alive, which is disabled and attacked by T/As and 2 or 3 decimators. When I head over to the Majestic, many T/As lock on and fire advanced missles, which I can't get to in time, and my chaff only keeps spinning me around and not allowing me to move. If I go for the T/As attacking the Majestic, the Devastators join with the other T/As attacking me. If I stop to fight them off, the T/As attacking the Majestic goes unchallenged and eventually destroys the Majestic. My wingmen are of no help in this mission, even when I set the mission on easy. And even when I fight off the T/As attacking the Majestic, the Devastotors attack the Majestic.

What I'm saying is that, I think the B7M3 mission for version 1.1. is too hard. If there are people who can give me tips on how to complete this mission, I'd gladly hear them.

The 1.1 version was accidentally made a lot harder. There is a fix in Discord for it

Which Discord?

Seems the XWAU is private and I can't find much information about it anywhere at all, this is an obscure game with an obscure issue after all.

This missions as described is essentially impossible, especially since the SD seems particularly weak; it dies so fast! Not to mention, between the opposing missiles, lack of support and the craft with never-miss turrets, there is little you can actually do to prevent the Majestic's destruction.

You realize that this is the TFTC and not the XWAU, right? The TFTC has a public discord which can be found in the main article on the TFTCs modDB Page.

But here's the link: TFTC Discord Check the quick-fixes channel for various fixed missions for v1.1

Yes unfortunately B7M3-R is pretty much unwinnable right now without the fix due to an unforseen consequence of a bug fix regarding points we introduced in 1.1 that affected AI behaviour. I've attached the current fixed mission file to this post.

I downloaded and played the new mission. While it was a tough battle, I finished it. Thank you.
