Awesome! Is there a chance you'll revisit old Red Revolution-based maps and remedy the crashes?

Potentially, all it took was removing some walls :p

Haha yep, I'd say it's the best map I've made and perfect for experimenting a potential new series of challenges :)

Any chance of pulling an inversion on it like you're defending a city up north as your allies slowly turn on you?

That's a cool idea, a reversal of Faction Challenge that wouldn't take much time to rework the AI Teams, defo something to consider down the line :)

Nice Challenge Map
however the lag still occurs and my fps drop to 20

can you do a Chrono storm map?

Thanks man, my fps seemed fine in play testing apart from a few spikes.

I've tried recreating Chrono Storm before but it kept crashing due to the map layout affecting the crap pathfinding, so it probably won't happen.

really? is that some limitation from worldbuilder?
i see

Well, Chrono Storm is a small city map with little room to manoeuvre and Generals has notoriously ****** pathfinding, hence the crashes.

I'm working on the GLA challenge which should hopefully be out in the next week or two, depending on work.

I know, I saw the gameplay last night, seems the Kremlin's Command Bunker gave your Particle Cannons some trouble :p

thanks for the watch btw
so far i test all of them and here is some faction from easiest to hardest to finish

1. ECA
2. USA
3. GLA
4. Russia
5. China

China is the hardest due of bunker are no match with sentinels and Overlord too
I may need Han Gunship EMP Cannon to defend the base but it's still hardest for me

No worries, I'd recommend building defences on the hill near your base, bunkers full of Tank Hunters can do a lot of damage against the tank rushes. On the other hand place artillery units such as Nuke Cannons on the hill to take out units from afar.

Any more tips let me know and I'll give my advice.

thanks for the tip however i must manage my money too so it could be easy

i will try to throw another attempt and after this it will be finished

I'm impressed with your use of the Generals Powers, especially the use of the Bulldog Turret. You found a weakness in the enemy bases and took your chances, good work! :)

China Finally finished and now i can make a list from the faction who can finish this challenge from shortest to the longest

1.ECA
2.China
3.GLA
4.Russia
5.USA

I am being honest for USA that this one could be finished more faster like ECA however it was my first time to beat it but i don't had a time to do a rematch.

Still very fun challenge. Russian has Very powerful offense but had a weakness spot which remind me of our cut USA Boss Ironside.

Looking forward with your challenge mate.

Thanks mate, I appreciate you taking time to play and record the missions.

The GLA Challenge is progressing well, just need to adjust the A.I and playtest all factions and it should be out by the weekend!

I like the idea, how ever during my 1 hour fight with GLA. (1)i can say that the pathing was a little weird (its generals i know) as in they only came from the right flank. with the exception of one air attack from my left flank. (2) I would recommend (if you have the knowledge) to script the game to only have one SW for the players.

(3)One final thing, would it be possible to add a difficulty?
(edit: this is all pure constructive criticism, and i am full support of your work)

The flanking thing is intentional, the only teams that don't go through the right flank is Orlov's air units and Aleksandr's Tesla Tanks (The latter moves up around the hill and tries to flank from the north)

I can limit superweapons, however I do want the player to have everything at their disposal to fight all 3 main enemies. I would consider limiting superweapons for hard difficulty however.

Speaking of difficulty, the only way to do that is creating 3 versions of each Faction Challenge, which would make a total of 15 maps per Faction Challenge! Unfortunately I don't have the time to do that, but if you have the know how to edit teams in worldbuilder, by all means play around with it.

It's all good mate I appreciate the support :)

1. You can check my gameplay as GLA
They can send tesla tank at the left flank

2.Agree for that since original general challenge had superweapon limit

RedDeadSmeg this is a great challenge, i know you get from cupshadow inspired you to get this one. well done.

I have a opportunity for you since im been thinking that you might be interested.
About challenging to ECA. how about it is similar to generals townes base which is totally middle but the map is totally different background since europe is a west direction when a play have to attack from setting up a base in east position. any northeast, southeast or east place will do. of course the eca base is on the middlewest. there some of the building which is the source of powering the eca which the player has to destroy first. the source must be at the behind of the enemy base which the player has to be having a tatics for going around the map before striking the heart of the base, unlike the one you post recently which is a bit straight forward i can see the tatics for russian is more on brutality.

For the eca base since i learning which the eca is mostly a defence faction. may i suggest the stronget defence must in front of the defensive position to protect the base including the fire support. of cource it is up to you how to put those building for tatician. of course, each generals has their backup plan when one of the command center is destroyed they will send a wave of reinforcements to attack the player base. of course there is a backup base but it will be small. But it doesnt matter the small base or the large base. the point is when one of the important facility is destroyed, the reinforcements will arrive to destroy the player base. thats why i think. But i think you can make better than that since i have just the mind for the maps to be look like.

im thinking the map should be as large as this map for russian map, the one you edited the cupshadow made and depends on the difficulty, especially of hard, i prefer limited superweapon.

IF i sound like i demand to you im sorry about that. this is just an opinion you can think as a small plan to twist a better one. About usa, gla and china im still thinking which is suitable for them since i need to learn the tatics from them in action because i can spectulate a battleground which is possible to make.
