 Alternative Skirmish V2.01 (B26) Fixed
Alternative Skirmish

What it does:

- Makes AI only being able to drop within their territory, which extends as they advance on the battlefield
- Your LZ works the same as the enemy. You can drop anywhere on your army/base
- Constant increase in difficulty. Enemies get more and better actors with better equipment the farther the battle goes.
- Special AI waves such as browncoats, dreadnoughts, coalition assaults and an APC
- When fighting vs AI and is using either a movable brain or the standard brain case, you will have to escape after a sudden time. Just like in maginot

Abdul Alhazred: APC

PS
Be the first to post a pic of you winning a fight on NUTS! :)

The mod is now working correctly

I really like this a lot. The increased difficulty/weapon equips as time goes on is a great implement. So far, there hasn't really been an issue with the drop ships dropping soldiers on ones that are already on the ground. How is it decided where the drop ships come when there are currently no enemies on the ground?

They will spawn at the farthest away position from your brain and the front will expand from there. Though it currently only works properly in x-wrapped scenes at the moment, but i'll fix that at some point.

This is great, no more cheap attacks from above because the enemy dumped their soldiers all over the map.

Also, that's a terrible place for the brain. He'll take rocket thrust to the face if something lands there.

I know, but I didn't bother making a pretty/effective bunker for the pic :P

This is really great, you can actually drive the enemies out of your base and they won't just drop more crates on top of it!
I'm lovin' it.

Could the EDV APC stuff be made optional?

Here is a version without the APC. Though I think EDV is a must have mod anyway ^^

What the hell?

Coalition in huge jetpacks?
This is the most exciting skirmish I've ever had.

EDIT:

Wait a second, I'm sure I've seen those huge jetpacks before, but I don't know where.

The jetpacks are from the space marines mod by unwoundpath ( I think ). I am using them as WIP sprites.

Hm.

Guess that's why I wanted a space marine mod. Lol.

Back on the skirmish, why don't you make it end after the APC is destroyed or something? Or maybe spawn more APCs?

Because after destroying it the skirmish felt like finished.

I like the non-ending style, but I am sure a second activity that ends could easily be made and included.

Generally adding more customization would be great, something along the same sort of lines as weegee's modular faction stuff would be perfect, but something simpler would also be excellent.
