Hello FED2K. I finally released another campaign. This one was created by me and Galaxy, we worked together on it. You fight as an Ixian commander. IF you guys don't know what Ix is, it is that new light brown side found in the New Atreides and mercenary campaigns. NOTE: Please read that README.txt file before installing or before coming here asking questions about stuff which is written inside. About how to install, everything is written in the readme file. Just read all of it, it takes like 3-4 minutes maximum. Have fun, we hope you enjoy it. Post here any bugs you find. Update: Version 1.1 - Hotfix Patch released. Please REDOWNLOAD. Ixian Campaign v1.1.zip
STORY: This campaign simply use the basic story of conquering Dune but with the adition of the Ixian faction in control by the player with some presence of Tleilaxu into the game. However, the landscape will drastically change when a new rule it's implemented; this rules forbid to anybody to use their heavy armory to crush infantry, this means that any side will make use of any anti-infantry weaponry to stop waves of enemy troopers or even infantry, since now they can kill easily some of the most expensive vehicles. THEME: The Ixians were always about amazing researches of technology; so the player it's going to be given the tech advance from the most part of the game. Build tanks when others can only attack with quads and you will feel the difference in power of both sides... or mass produce troopers to destroy any enemy vehicle that try to launch at you before the siege tank appears on the game. Ixian has a so high technolgy, that they will skip completely the production of light vehicles and light factories in exchange for a new Ixian Factory, capable of producing much more stronger tanks. Player will notice the advantages of being given units that the enemy AI can't produce yet. ALTERING WITH TIBED: All the detalied info about the modified Tech tree is on a ".txt" note, but as a summary, I can tell you a few alterations: - The player can't build the Light Factory, but in his place now you will build a "new" building called "Ixian Factory". This new factory is necessary to build Deviator, Sonic Tank and Devastator (only the player can build this) and using a separated queue (you can build a combat tank and a Sonic Tank at the same time). - Player will build the High Tech Factory, although looks like the Atreides one. Both Carryall and airstrike are available. - MCV can't be builded, but the Starport offers the regular stuff (trikes, MCV, carryall, etc) more CY can be deployed. - Not for the player, but the Sietchs now actually can spawn units like the barracks (the sietch stands of his own). - FOOT UNITS CAN'T BE CRUSHED BY TANKS. ; use your Infantry, Siege tanks or Sonic Tanks to kill troopers more easily. Player can also abuse this by training infantry and killing enemy missile tanks easily. - The Atreides still have the regular Light factory and original Atreides Combat Tank, so they behave like normal. TEXT.UIB In the zip I added a Text.uib called "TextIxENG.uib", don't forget to apply this file so in the game appears "Ixian Factory" instead "Light Factory". This will affect the enemy, but since the game called "enemy building" doesn't matter. Now, if you capture a Light factory will be called "Ixian Factory" too, but don't get it wrong, Trikes and Quads will share the same queue as your Deviator/Devastators, so don't really worth it. IMAGES: FILE: IX Masters of Technology.rar In certain circustances game may crash during the 4º mission, if you want to be 100% sure that that will not happen, download an apply this Fix: Fix: _Ix - MASTERS OF TECHNOLOGY 4.MIS INSTRUCTIONS: The rar include plenty of instructions. Don't forget to apply all of them to have the full experience on the game. Copy Tiledata.bin if you've never done it before (Doesn't affect the original game). Copy TextIxENG.uib or the game will crash (No need to overwrite anything). Copy templates.bin to change all the rules, or else the game may crash or being incomplete (and one level almost unbeatable). Remember to do a back_up of the original in this case so you can revert to the original state. And of course, copy mis/map/ini files. 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: CustomCampaignData.rar Ix - Masters of tech update ini.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 you have to do all the changes needed manually. Download the official lastest Mission Launcher 1.2 in order to be able to use the new features.
