Post news Report RSS wolfman-MC2X-URE (UPRISE EDITION) Update

The campaign will have 21 misions and 18 missions are completed. It will take a few more weeks to complete and final test and package it for release. Overall I worked around one year on the campaign and integrated a bunch of new functions and inventory into the gaming system during the campaign development. I just released the latest revion (R36) of my Development Kit wolfman-MC2X yesterday that includes all fixes and new features used in MC2X-URE.

Update: 22 mission campaign completed

=========================================================
wolfman-MC2X-URE (Starting point of story and for first msision)
=========================================================

What is the overall situation ?
==============================

Occupational forces took control over your home planet a long time ago.
They established a brutal regime to plunder the planet and strip it of all valuable natural resources.
The resources are transported by dropships to other planets.
The inhabitants are suppressed and used under slavery like conditions to do all the labor.
The inhabitants have no military capabilities anymore and lost all prior equipment.
Because there is no resistance on the planet anymore:
- the occupation army is strong but dominantly using green pilots that are exchanged periodically;
- their equipment is not the latest technology standard;
- they have only 6 bases distributed over the occupied planet to control it and maintain the logistics towards their home planet.

The communication between different zones in one area requires com towers.
The communication between different areas on the planet requires com dishes.
The long-distance communication between planets requires Hyper-Pulse Stations.

All moderate or peaceful approaches to regain independence had been beaten down by brute force;it is time to try differently.

Who are you ?
==============================
You are a former commander of the planet's small army that is in hiding since years.
You have still connections to trusted friends from former times and good contacts to the so called 'collectors'.
The collectors are people without use for the occupational forces that live nomad style and collect objects and information.
They sell both to the highest bidder and thus are left alone in most cases by the occupants but used to their benefit.
The collectors have very few weapons and units they found on various battlefields and then repaired, but do not pose any threat.
You got a few names of soldiers in the occupational army that sympathizes with the inhabitants and condemn the approach of the occupational forces.
Where ever they might come from, but all potential supporters of any rebellious uprise will use code names as call sign.

What is the current and unique opportunity ?
==============================

Base Alpha was built into four extended rock formations inside a pretty remote dry land.
It holds an airfield as well as two fortified encampments and one outpost.
The purpose is to provide supply and maintain logistics and area security.
Even drop ships come here on a regular schedule.
One soldier with codename 'Rebel' is on guard duty at the outpost.
She provided valuable insider information about the entire operations and processes in the area.
Your challenge is to command her to successfully create an uprise and overthrow the occupation on the planet.
The uprise must be hidden from the occupants home planet to gain time and create a respectable defense before any reinforcements could arrive.
Thus the disruption of long-distance communication is key to success.
The next scheduled regular exchange of occupation forces is multiple month from now.
'Rebel' must Survive ! Her death would end any uprise because of her unique insights and iconic status to the resistance.

Hey are you going to use all the UI buttons from omnitech628 to make it look a bit prettier?

No. I always kept the look and feel of the game but expanded it here and there.
My theme is "familiar and better".

New is different but not always better.
The original MC2 User Inteface is consistent in itself and fits to a classic good old game.

Sometimes real life requests priority and full attention.
Thus I have to revise the release date and delay it by about two month.

Full steam ahead right now to get it released finally at end of May 2017.
The campaign has now 22 misions and in my opinion is not very hard to complete. I believe it will be the eaiest campaign I ever designed. I am reluctant to pump-up the difficulty at this point in time.

The campaign structure, the mission sequence and mission names are frozen now. It is all about testing and story implementation tweaks.

How to start Ice King operation? I had a Warship before but it's not available for this mission but I need a spheroid dropship. What to do?

You should have several from prior missions by now.
I count 3 at this point minimum. No commander can deploy units to far away planets without dropships.

2 of them had an attack cursor on them and the last one (the left one) had a 'cannot capture' cursor on it like when an enemy nearby but it was the latest unit, I've destroyed all enemy mechs and helicopters. Could it be because of I attacked and destroyed 2 dropships before enemy attack started?

The pilots surrender once you shoot at them a few times and the dropship is yours. Just do not destroy them. Focus on the other units but fire on the dropships a few times.

This all happens in Return To Base Foxtrott.

No, the dropship pilots should eject and leave the dropships damaged but not destroyed in any case you fired shots at them (airstrikes do not count). A message is displayed to inform you about the event.

It works perfectly fine here. I looked into the file again and re-tested it.

Not realy. You can send me your latest savegame file after completion of ReturntoFoxtrot and I will add a dropship for you and return it. Then you can move on in the camapaign.
