the cargo truck died last before the game failed.
Cargo Truck? An empty cargo truck or a loaded wreckage truck?

it had rare ore in it. it was owned by the enemy. it was just sitting there. oh yea... Eden needs a rare ore smelter and mabie a SF.  im going to start working on that third colony. so you have to move the light tower in the south east corner

no need. it gives you the ability to build it as soon as you load the wreckage.
huh... did i launch that??? no, that was the Edward satellite. but i think i launched it during the battle

Didn't work on it for a while...
However, I finished the AI vs. AI battle. Don't forget that the remaining forces will attack the player unless you're playing on easy.

I just wanted to finish this before i go on holiday on sunday for 2-3 weeks

They fight each other and the remnants attack you? And the logic is... where?

Okay now I have played it. Here are my thoughts:
  • The AI fight its actually interesting
  • The Plymouth base is too hard to get into
  • The Eden AI is too easy too kill
  • All the buildings are not recorded
  • The Plymouth AI looks too fake. The units need to patrol or something
  • You need to display a message when you get the weackage objectives that can jump to the location
  • Easy, is... well WAY to easy, drop the steady morale
  • DISASTERS
The objectives are done quite good though. I was wondering if I could get you code to see how you did it. I got some ideas. I could give you some help on the disasters. My scripts are good for disasters (:

The plymouth buildings are recorded and the AI is just a basic AI and it will be improved later.

Disasters will maybe added later, lop didn't even list them in the to do list

Oh and eden will get a rare ore and research base later.(Fear the thors hammer!)

Sadly i can't work on it at the moment.

damn that urber-quake

well flashy uhh... add a rare ore and another VF some thors should be kicked out at about m750. and at the last 6 wreckage locations there should be about 4-7 Plymouth or/and Eden units guarding the locations. also there should be some random lynx patrols(randomize the x/y destinations) at about m200-m400. another idea is to have the colony game start off just like a land rush. all of your colonists and buildings are packed up and you move out of Plymouth to a predestined location(CC must be built in a certain aria. your enemy's are to easy to kill; you just have to get 2-3 microwaves past there picket lines to kick there asses

and another thing LORD OF PAIN PLEASE SHOW UP LITTLE MORE OFTEN. i never did like playing tag with some one better then i :P
oh i found the map with all of the positions of the allie Eve colony and the dead Eden colony. ill upload it when i can get on that laptop again wile i have an internet connection

oh and another thing REQUESTING ALL OUTCASTERS RELATED TOPICS MOVED TO THE OTHER PROJECTS FORUM

The uber-quake is not a normal disaster. It is by no means random.

I can do a lot better. Once I slaughter StarCarft II, I will be returning to rewriting my colony and it should be done by September.

I don't recommend adding new code to the file yet since hidiot still wants to choose a better player base layout. etc

Stop waiting on me for anything, I only do OP2 stuff in my spare time, which has lately been very limited. In fact, college starting in about two weeks implies me having no idea when I can do more Outpost 2 programming.
