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
I am about to release a new Campaign for Dune 2000. This one is based on the Ixian Faction, fighting in a traditional type of Campaign (starting low tech, conquering Dune... the usual stuff), although in terms of missions I tried some new ideas for maps. The main plot is just the Ixian fighting to control Dune against the usuall trio of Atreides, Harkonnen and Ordos, although the Tleilaxu, Fremen and Mercenaries will appear at some point. First, need to say that I touched a lot the Tech tree of the game. In general the player always will have the advantage of the tech, so when the Atreides are building the Trike/Quad thing, the player is already building Combat Tanks, so the Tech of lots of buildings/units have been reduced, while a couple of them increased. In terms of Raw power/armor/weapons I only change 2 things: The Combat tank, being a mix among the Atreides, Ordos and Harkonnen Tank (stats and visually). This unit was already introduced in my single mission "Ix - The Technology is ours", being the same. Also, the Stealth Raider use the Fremen type of weapon (also presented in that single mission). All the detalied info about the modified Tech tree is on a .txt note, but as a summary, I can tell you a couple of things: - 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. Yes, now you actually need to use the light infantry, the Siege tank and the Sonic tank as the main source to kill Troopers. <-- of course, the player should abuse this and train lots of troopers in early-mid levels to protect against any vehicle the enemy want to send you. And of course, the Siege Tank become much more valuable, even more with all those Tleilaxu-Fremen enemies. - The Atreides still have the regular Light factory and original Atreides Combat Tank, so they behave like normal. 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. Finally, a couple of images: 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. I think all is done. I did a small test and the game works ok in my vanilla dune 2000 version (of course, you still need the lastest dune2000.exe and missionlauncher.exe, you can get those for this very forum. My readme have the direct link to that). Small update (18/10/2018): -The Ixian Combat Tank was suppose to have a mix stats from the three original tanks. Now it's fixed and the tank it's as fast as it should be. If I am missing a file report me. Download: IX Masters of Technology.rar
