--- Ron Lester's levels Saturn Station, Rhea Station, and the Wind Mine series combine to make a whole set of missions.  Play them in order! ---
Will add to this list as we learn of more missions.  So tell us about the SP missions for Descent 3 you know about that are not in this list!

NOTE: I'm only listing Singleplayer missions that include goals, objectives, hazards (such as enemy robots,  bombs, etc.), and accomplishments towards ending/finishing the mission.  I'm NOT listing the many levels that support "Singleplayer" mode but are more of a multiplayer, anarchy, CTF type of level.

I didn't forget it... I didn't know about it (and I hadn't looked at the list of levels here at PD).  My apologies.

After going through many lists of Descent 3 missions... I've decided I will only list in this thread Descent 3 missions that are what I would call a "true singleplayer" type of mission.  There are many levels that support "Singleplayer" mode but are more of a multiplayer, anarchy, CTF type of level and I have no interest in listing those here.  This list is intended to be a list of Singleplayer missions that include goals, objectives, hazards (such as enemy robots,  bombs, etc.), and accomplishments towards ending/finishing the mission.

For example, a mission like "Reactor Gamma" is playable as an adventure for the singleplayer even though it's also good for Co-op.  This would be a good example of missions for this list.  Levels similar to "Poe" (link (http://d3fischlein.de/levels/scripts/counter.php?id=573)) may show up in the list of singleplayer missions in the Descent 3 game and you can "play" it in singleplayer mode ... but there isn't anything for the player to do but fly around, pickup powerups, and shoot at the walls.  "Poe" would be an example of a mission I'm not putting in this list.

Just so that everyone knows the criteria I'm using.

Missions like "1001 Ways To Die" (link (http://d3fischlein.de/levels/scripts/counter.php?id=177)) is something I haven't decided on.  "1001 Ways To Die" has goals, objectives, and plenty of hazards (such as enemy robots,  bombs, etc.) ... but as far as I've been able to tell, it doesn't have any means to "finish" it in singleplayer mode. 

What does everyone else think?

Heeeeey, Asteroids, I haven't seen that one in forever and a half. :P

Anyway, seeing D3 was just re-released on Steam and interest is going to be renewed, I figured spreading word of this list over on Steam was a good idea, so I went ahead and did that (http://steamcommunity.com/app/273590/discussions/0/540741131079251896/). :)

Got a download link? 

I've got a copy, but I don't remember if what I have was your released version or not... and I couldn't find it anywhere to download.  I didn't want to put it in the list if you didn't want it "out there".

I think I've played all of these, though there are a few I never finished. I think one was Monument, which as I recall I gave up on because it was so long, and got to be rather boring. Though I could be wrong I might be thinking of a different mission.

Shorter missions like Ahayweh Gate are fun. That was the inspiration behind my 'Factor' series. There was no planning for either, just started building.

No, it probably WAS Monument you're thinking of. It lasts blippin' forever. One of those levels that was a neat idea, but it just drags on and on and on.

Techpro's actually taken the time to finish it. Watching him do it was good enough for me.

I think I played that, not sure how far I got if I did. Want to say I was in the magnum.

There was another one, outside. The terrain was basically all rocks. I think you see a phoenix that crashed and is burning. There are various ways of getting in, but I think by getting keys or hitting switches first. At some point, late into it, i think you see some sort of hanger or something, guarded by those turrets I believe.

That sounds like either Roth 513 or Mission at Saturn that you're describing Vanguard. Of the two, I would hazard to guess Roth 513.

Speaking of, I haven't played Roth 513 in awhile...maybe I should do this during the weekend if I have the time. :)

Recently, I re-played Ron Lester's "Saturn Station-Titan Project" (long version of "Saturn Expidition") then started up "Rhea Station".   I had forgotten just how HUGE those levels are, especially Rhea Station.

Ron Lester was definitely a one of a kind when it came to creating SP levels for D3.  If I ever get to meet him ... My hats off to him!

After being basically... "AWOL" from updating the list... I've added 4 (yes, four) single player levels to the Descent 3 Single player Missions List!


I highly recommend all four.

Cheers!

I loaded up the Piccu Station (Demo) mission, but unfortunately it seems there's a problem with the scripting that's supposed to trigger when you fire on the switches. Absolutely nothing happens; the switches don't even move. Anyone else encountered an issue like this? (I'm playing on the new Mac port from Steam, which admittedly might be part of the problem.) Am I missing something? Thanks in advance for any advice anyone can offer. Also, I'm so thankful that this list has been meticulously maintained over the years!

It's been a little bit since I last played the level in question...but I seem to recall there being more than one set of switches, so for the sake of clarity, which ones are you referring to specifically?

All of them. None of the trigger-able switches I've encountered in (at least the first half of) the level move or do anything when shot.

Post by: Scyphi on March 04, 2021, 08:57:02 PM
If none of the switches are activating their relevant scripts, you must not be able to even get out into that first area of terrain then...odd.

Anyway, I've played the level on my own Steam D3 installation then again on a non-Steam installation I also use far enough into each level to test several of its switches. All of them worked fine and as intended in every instance. The datalink puzzle was even fully functional.

Of course, this is me playing it on a typical Windows 10 PC, not a Mac, so as already noted, that could be all the difference right there. Unfortunately, I do not have access to a Mac to playtest on. :( So testing that more directly would have to be left up to somebody other than me.

But my guess that it is either due to the Mac style of installation as suggested (in which case, if you have access to a PC, try it there and see if you get the same results) or something went amiss with the level's files when it was installed to your game, in which case I'd recommended removing that level and then downloading it and installing it again fresh, see if that helps.

I read the level's attached read me file, see if that gave any suggestions, but unfortunately it didn't give any troubleshooting info at all--according to it, it should just be plug and play.

in the correct thread this time...

I vaguely remember hearing that the new linux and mac versions of Descent 3 have problems linking to older script binaries, but I can't test it myself ATM.

Are there any audio alerts like messages from the beagle or 'intruder alerts' ? If not, that means the scripts for mac/linux were not included in the level. There isn't anyone around anymore that can compile those scripts unfortunately.

No audio, so this looks to be the issue. Thanks for helping me figure out what was going on, even if it's something that can't be fixed.

What's needed to compile them?

You need the level source files to start with, if they weren't included in the mn3 it'll be hard to do anything... as for compiling , hmm...you would best be using a really old distro. I've tried to compile scripts for my last level but ended up giving up as I couldn't get past the problem of endless deprecated functions. And while I could find old images for early 2000s distros, had zero luck installing them in a VM.
