ability to advance in the campaign.

the cheat function.
Effect Screen Code

Get insulted by FRED 2:
In FRED 2 (the mission editor program) place a ship (such as a SJ Sathanas)
somewhere, then place another one so that they take up the same space. This
is easier if you have “View Models” or at least “View Outlines” enabled,
because you can place the second ship so that its center is just off the
surface of the first one. The second ship you place will automatically be
named “U.R.A. Moron 1″.
During a mission, type ”arrrrwalktheplank” to summon a priate ship.
UD-8 Kayser in the mission Endgame:
During “Endgame,” the 25th mission Volition programmers accidentally left 99 UD-8
Kaysers available in the pre-launch weapon selection screen even though the weapon
isn’t technically introduced until much later in the game. Use them! While they
cause a significant drain in your power reserves when compared to other weapons,
the Kaysers are the best primary weapons in the game and will utterly destroy the
waves of NTF fighters you come across during this mission.
