As the Great War rages on, you've been commissioned by Galactic Terran Intelligence for special intelligence operations. Your objectives are to contain the Shivan onslaught and preserve the fragile Terran-Vasudan alliance. But a series of suspicious events cloud the GTI's spotless record. Is the GTI setting you up or are the Shivans spreading their evil rage?


  • Eighteen missions based on (but superior to) the original Silent Threat, eight of which are completely new
  • An immersive story that remains true to the original, yet is far more fleshed out
  • Supports many of the newest features of FreeSpace_Open yet is compatible with FreeSpace 2 retail
  • Fully voice acted

0 comments by Goober5000 on Jan 2nd, 2009

After six years, numerous rewrites, substantial feature creep, and a few premature reports of project death, the FSPort Team is proud to finally bring you Silent Threat: Reborn! Containing eighteen missions, 947 voiced lines, dozens of SCP enhancements (while retaining retail compatibility), and countless hours of work, the final result is something we're very proud of. We hope you are as excited to play it as we are to release it.

You may download Silent Threat: Reborn automatically using Turey's Installer or manually via the links in the Downloads and Addons sections. Silent Threat: Reborn requires a full copy of FreeSpace 2 as well as the FreeSpace Port version 3.1 or later.

The voice pack is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Several missions virtually require it. (And it also delayed the release by about two years, so we think it's well worth waiting for!)

Note that the default mod.ini does not use the mediaVPs. If you want to play with them (also highly recommended), then follow Vasudan Admiral's instructions here. Please note that if you want to use the FSPort mediavps, you must have the 3.6.10 mediavps installed as well.

Sorry for the double post (merge with the previous one if you can, Goober). I found this article on the Wiki.

It's a bit out of date and doesn't cover much, but it gives you some basics.

There must be a general "How to install a mod to FSOpen?" tutorial/FAQ somewhere around at the SCP board.

I'm considering to write a Wiki article about it anyway, but I'm rather out-of-date about the SCP if it comes down to details.

I've asked Lobo to make a "Getting Started" page. You might want to PM him if you feel like helping. :)

Sorry, placed comment on the wrong page...

For making me chew for hours without end thru forums, subforums, installation instructions, secret hidden files and no proper solution to install this **** (even the readme doesn't tell you, what you need to do to get it to run), this deserves a 10 for the visuals and a ZERO for "ease" (haha, very good joke) of installation.

Seriously, why can all other mods on this site (and I'm talking about the good ones) have an installer, which does everything for you, but FS2 and its mod community can't?

If you don't want people to play your mod, there is a solution:
- password protect your files
- encrypt them
- make the download members only
- require a personal check before download
- DON'T release them to the public, who might keep on wondering wtf to do with those files...

Sorry, but I'm faster getting a master's degree @ the university than getting your (visually stunning) **** to run.

Resumee: MAKE. IT. EASIER.

I do apologize. The FreeSpace community is a rather small community, and most of the members are focused on generating content, not documentation. As a result we are rather short on "Getting Started" and "FAQ" and "What do I do now" sections. It is an acknowledged deficiency.

Do you have any suggestions on how we can make it better? Can you make a list of "top 10 questions I wish had been answered before I downloaded" or something like that?

I agree that an installer would make things easier. I think I will put Turey's Installer in our download section rather than the files themselves.
