How hard is it to kill those cloning things after the zombies come in the first version?


I hope it's almost impossible. They need 5K hits to explode. The mission code don't know who blows cloning vats, but it knows that if you or your enemy blow two of them mission will fail. Preserving vats is especially important when clones with flamethowers start descending from the roof. Keeping vats online in zombie safari phase is essential according to the plot, so you can't just blow them all up on your way to the roof :)

Maybe some kind of timer at the end before the place is flooded in nerve gas? Just some safeguard in case the clones go bad.

Oh I thought they were only needed for the uploading of the virus.

very nice mission!

spamming C4 and nades is helpful.
dimitri's infinite health pack saves lives (literally)

overweight zombies with blunderbusi (plural?) scary.
wind is bad if your jetpack happy.

9/10 :smile:

Blunderbusses, plural of -us is -i, and plural of -ss is -sses.
The C4 is very deadly, only useful when precision or devastation is needed, and you have room.

I beat the mission, using copious ( There is no way you can overstate this ) amounts of C4, blasted through more than enough walls to make the Citadel collapse, and there was enough fire for hippies go on strike for global warming prevention, and most of the tubes were perforated enough to completely flood the compound even though it's covered in fire and perforated.

Just discovered the fun to be had with the Rod From God or the MoleMachine, when the former is combined with an explosive designed only to remove large sections of ground, and the latter is piloted around obstacles while descending the level.

It's also immense fun to fly rockets up from the bottom, through the level (when in an obliterated state, but with no more than half removed).

I had lots of fun falling off the edge of the map, in the black space, where the wind is miraculously gone! I fall down to where I need to be (Where there is no wind), fly over to the little platform on the bottom-left/right of the box, dig into the base, kill all the guards, and install the virus.

I have done it! I beat the citadel without any mod help. With the destruction of a strategic cloning vat the acension was quite easy.

P.S. Thx for the grammar hep Foa!

I tried to destroy the vats, they didn't break, even though I attached 35 units of C4 onto each of them.

Any additional units except those three ronins won't start any alerts. That's because of alert code implementation and may be considered a flaw but it saves some CPU cycles.

Hrm. Maybe getting the current actor and checking if it isn't in the list might be a fast way?
