Hi there!

I'm wondering how that works with ranks and patches/ medals in TFTC. I have following questions:

1. Does the selected difficulty (or for example the collision on/off setting) have an influence on how many points you get or when you get a new rank? Afair it was like this in XWA and maybe also in the classic Tie Fighter (not sure). I remember that I completed XWA with only having one single rank increase, which was really annoying. I want to avoid that in TFTC.

2. Do you only get a new rank when you have a specific number of points? If so, how many points you need for which rank?

3 . Is the patches/ medals system working like in the classis Tie Fighter? I'm in the last mission of battle one but the jacket in the crew quarters hasn't changed at all so far. When I look at the aircraft models it says "model and patch awarded...". Shouldn't there patches be visible on the jacket?

4. Do you also get patches/ medals for completing training missions like it was in classic Tie Fighter?

1: Difficulty affects the combat points multiplier but not Bonus points. Secret Order ranks are determined by your Bonus points score whereas normal ranks are dictated by Combat points.

2: Yes, but due to the above, I accidentally calculated regular ranks as Bonus points not Combat so its actually very hard to rank up past Lieutenant currently. Secret Order rank points are different between Classic and Reimagined.

Classic
First Initiate: 5,000
Second Circle: 25,000
Third Circle: 50,000
Fourth Circle: 80,000
Inner Circle: 125,000
Emperor's Hand: 175,000
Emperor's Eyes: 250,000
Emperor's Voice: 350,000
Emperor's Reach: 475,000

Reimagined
First Initiate: 8,000
Second Circle: 30,000
Third Circle: 60,000
Fourth Circle: 100,000
Inner Circle: 150,000
Emperor's Hand: 225,000


3: No, all medals awarded are shown in the medal cabinet. Ribbons are technically present in the score screen but we didn't do anything with those (yet). Unfortunate other than rank, we cannot update the Uniform with medals/patches.

4: See above.

@Angel isnt "Emperor's Hands" supposed to be "Emperor's Voice" instead ?

Yes you're right, I got mixed up in my descriptions. Fixed.
