Running Vega Strike from the Command Line

Vega Strike takes a single command parameter indicating which mission it should load

.\vegastrike mission/explore_universe.mission

is an example of a valid mission call.

The -j flag (must be flush with the system) will force a player to begin in a star system.

.\vegastrike -jvega_sector/vega mission/n_vs_n/confed/confed_2v2.mission

will force the 2v2 mission to run in the vega sector.

The default mission (explore_universe) is recommended for an introduction to the Vega Strike trading universe. To get the default mission you need not select a mission initially.

Also, you can sometimes "drag and drop" the mission that you want onto vegastrike (not the launcher, but the vegastrike.exe itself.)
