Battle 4 - Mission 1: Shipment to Mining Colony (Family mission)

Here we can have in-depth discussions about which missions need to be adjusted because they are broken either by original design or by XWA models.

Dear XWA upgrade Team,
I usually a passive reader since I heard of your amazing mod most recently. Then I saw this forum section that fits perfectly with some problems I encountered. Most of these have already been addressed by other threads here but I haven't found any information on this particular mission yet.
Its the Mission where you raid a Space Station and steal containers for the Alliance. You are flying with a wing of friendly fighters. Its mostly straight forward, but at one point, usually when all the ships (the freighters with cargo, the fighters and yourself) arrive at the asteroid base one of the allied escort fighters starts destroying the freighters leading to a mission failure.
This betrayal can also happen already at the enemy space station. This happens without any warning in either dialog or mission tab update. So Im pretty sure its a bug.
It seems there is a timer in the background and after a certain amount of time (which i couldn't determine) at least one of the escorts turns on the freighters.

I tried the mission in all difficulty modes and the result is always the same, with now exception. It's weird that I haven't read about this anywhere else, because it happens to me every time.

For the mods im using:
XWA craft pack 1.6
Rebel Dynamic Cockpits 2.1
Blue Max 1.1.3.2
Super backdrops 3.0

Hope you can help me with that, I managed to get by the mission by turning all freighters invincible, but that's not a satisfying solution.

Mhm, that is strange. I played that mission a couple of days ago but didn't have that happen. Jaeven also did not report any issues with that mission.

No idea what could cause this. There's nothing in the orders that would cause this to happen.

Try replacing the mission file in your missions folder with the file I've uploaded and tell me if it still happens.

Hey Jaeven, I just tested the mission with your mission file again and this time in worked as intended. No treacherous Starfighters this time. Thanks.


I attached my old mission file. If you are curious maybe you can check out if there is anything odd with it. I opened it in a mission editor but couldn't find anything obvious.
