Hi guys. You read that right, a campaing for Dune 2000 based in the first book from Frank Herbert. A total of 15 mission following the steps of Paul Atreides since he meets the Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam until the final battle in Arrakis. To create this custom campaing I took the liberty to do a lot of adaptation, more or less accuracy and trying to bring some events from the book into a RTS game like this. So, for this campaign you will encounter several type of adaptations: -The logicals: a scenario like when the Harkonnen and Sardaukar overwhelm the Atreides. Of course in my map to win you should survive, but you will face an unstoppable force by the enemy as happen in the book. -The duels: You can think in Gurney Halleck doing a last training fight with Paul Atreides. Instead two guys with knives and shields this is about a base vs base fight where the two combatants have similar resources (or almost) and no aditional bases/enemies. -Own creations: Some levels are just battles to fill, mainly because in the book there isn't any type of "action" there, so I wanted to create a level with a fight. I can tell you the example when the Duke Leto arrives to Arrakis. In this campaing a weak Harkonnen captain, by his own, don't want to leave dune to his sworm enemies: the Atreides. The Baron doesn't care, the Emperor neither... the duke will be one to defeat this small threat by himself (helped by Paul, as the player is always Paul). -The weirds: The Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohian show to Paul a box which brings pain and then place a needle in his neck... How to convert this to a RTS game? Well, check it out by yourselves since it is the first level of this campaing! Just a warning... don't retreat or the Gom Jabbar will kill you! Here some images: Paul Atreides Vs Gurney Halleck duel. The Duke want to save the harverster. The Harkonnen and Sardaukar attacking multiple Atreides bases. Fremen ambushing smugglers harvesters. Guerrilla warfare by Paul. To play this campaing you can use either gruntmod or any other vanilla Dune version. Copy all the mission pack, download and apply the mission launcher and the rest of the files needed to be able to play this without trouble. All the files are included in the .zip file (except dune2000.exe and missionlauncher.exe, but the readme include the link to those files) <-- If you already have all those files, you don't need to overwrite them again, just take the files from the mission folder. Download here: Frank Herbert.zip EDIT: JULY/2020 With the creation of the new version of the mission launcher by Feda, now this can be loaded more easily by using my custom stuff, like having different crates, altering the tech of the player/enemy, and all kind of things that previosly required to being overwritten manually. With the new version of that said launcher that's not needed anymore, if you have well placed the next pair of files. One contain the custom stuff used for this specific work, and the other the new .ini that can make that custom stuff to be loading it. Download files here: FB campaign ini update.rar CustomCampaignData.rar How to install: -CustomCampaignData: un zip this rar and move it into the root of the game, which means a folder called "CustomCampaignData" has to share the same folder as "Dune2000.exe" and "Missionlauncher.exe" are stored. -.ini files: After downloading the campaign (on the above area of this post), ovewritte with these .ini files. Simply Unzip it and ovewritte. - These two things only work together with the new version MissionLauncher released in this 2020 year, but they are still compatible with an early version, although if that's the case the intel won't show up. This campaign doesn't use anything new but intel entrances (extra information of the main characters you will encounter during the campaign), so the 1.2 Mission launcher it's not a must have in order to play this campaign as the intel have no impact on the game itself.
