Description:

Follow the early career of a young Free Radical base commander who becomes a pivotal figure as the Mining Wars reignite. This fully-featured campaign encompases eight levels, six missions, and a heart pounding two-part finale that will change the face of Icarus forever!

Features:

Idea In addition to the standard easy, normal, and hard settings, every level features an unlockable "Extreme Mode" for the true Warfare professionals. Just find the hidden switch - in a different location on every level - within the first thirty seconds of each mission to activate it!

Idea Integral ranking system. Can you reach the rank of Secure Mining Base Commander?

Idea Performance based scoring system - With each challenge you meet and overcome, your score increases. At the end of each mission you're given a score - play through to the final mission for a total score, then post your highest score in this topic! Want to know who the best players are? Here's your chance!

Idea Finding yourself in familiar circumstances? Maybe that's because this campaign features special versions of two of my previous missions: Guerillas in the Mist and Sword of the Sun. Play them again for the first time!

Idea This completely original plot features a surprise ending that will be unlike anything you've ever seen!

Actually, it's gone through alot of changes since then. Some missions were way too hard, some were too unclear, some had major bugs. You'll definitely want to download this one. It's a vast improvement over what you had before.

(sigh.) for those twelve of you who've downloaded this level, I've already found and fixed a bug. If you find level two a bit easy, download again. Evil or Very Mad

Okay, one final update: I squashed a bug in Mission 6 that created random unit groups on extreme mode - nasty. Extreme mode on that level should actually be winnable now.

I also added scores to the end of every mission, so you don't have to play all the way through to get a score, now!

Okay, just to get the ball rolling, here is my initial score after beating this mission pack:

Final Score: 108,495

Come on, I know somebody out there can beat this! I even played some missions on easy!

If anyone can score higher, Verdagon can! (Consider this a personal challenge, my friend! Wink )

As much as I appreciate the compliment, I'm not one of the creators of the game, just an over-ambitious map writer! Wink

You're having trouble with "Prelude," right? Okay, here's a few tips:

Idea Send troops to the galaxite field to the south of the first Omni base you find (which is to the east across the river) - attack the bullpup, processor and the HRC. Then you can gather troops there for a two-pronged attack on the gate and towers. Some people even like to build a mini-base down there to take advantage of the heavy concentration of galaxite!

Idea Find and take over all the galaxite warehouses hidden in the mountains. Some of them even distract Omni units by being just out of range (the units will just sit there, trying to reach them, sometimes for the whole game - crazy Omni)

Idea You don't have to activate the replicator to win this level, but it certainly helps!!

Idea Attack the main base from two directions at once - you take heavy casualties, but it splits up the base's defenders.

Idea Make sure you have alot of troops on hand to guard the replicator before you activate it, because Omni will send quite a large attack force to try to take it over! In fact, it's probably a good idea not to activate the replicator until the smaller base to the east is wiped out!

...I hope those tips help. If you have any trouble with any of the other levels, just post here and I'll see if I can help!

Thanks for playing!

Professional looking missions. Spiffcode should hire you to make levels.

My favorite was Guerillas. While destroying the mining base, the patrol with the hydra came back. I had to go back outside, then hide and wait until the patrol left. Then I had enough time to finish off the base. Good that you omitted the FR raiders in this version.
