the AI plays on normal (normal cost and production), but on the skirmish the AI plays on easy (25% cheaper/faster)

so does the difficulty setting matter in skirmish?

In skirmish all AIs play on easy, but the difficulty changes their initial money.
On easy they start with 3000 credits, on hard with 40.000 and on normal the amount you set on the menu (the same the player starts).

Hey, for someone who has no idea how to edit. Is it possible if someone can change this to a single campaign for me 😕

Aye, it should be possible, just a little more tricky.

If you have a desire to learn to edit, these forums are pretty friendly and editing d2k is very easy to learn the basics for. I'm sure if you ask, someone will answer.

Hey Fey, I'll keep that in mind :) I did try to download this mod but it wouldn't open. Do you have any idea why??

This map it's mean to play using the "cncnet5" online option. (although I think it works using the "skirmish" option too).

The three files need to be on the path:
<directory of the game>/Dune2000/data/maps. (you'll see there lots of other maps, at least if you already executed "cncnet5" once).

On the menu then it's about searching the map, adding all the AI's needed and play it.

Its not a mod, its a map, you put it into the maps folder in /Dune2000/data/maps then go on skirmish and play it.

So, here is Mission 2.

There are no harvester replacement in this mission, you have to deal with what you got. This is for story, because after the last mission the Smugglers gave you some money to build a "mining outpost" and now you have to harvest spice to pay them back and some extra spice for yourself, you cant afford replacements yet. Have fun!

- No starting Units

- Starting money: 4000

- AI 1 (Normal) ( No specific team )

- Tech level 4

Good. I wish I could play the way it's suppose to be.

I'll give a try anyway, even if I end playing alone.

I don't know if during online-skirmish options the maps appears on alphabetical order, but if that happens you should rename all your maps with the same name adding "1" for the first mission, "2" for second and so on. They would be more easy to find if they appear togethers (on top of that, a group of 9 maps will pop-up in bewteen the hunder skirmish maps over there).

Right, they indeed appear next one to the other; however one appear as "Honored matres : mission 1-something" meanwhile the other appears as "Co-op 2p vs 1 AI Honore's matres campaign mission 2".

I only know this two missions are related and are part of one campaign because I am following this posts, but nothing on their name suggests that they are part of a same story.

I tried to play both maps using the cncnet this time.

First map was like the last time I played except this time my ally took forever to build a unit to attack the outpost. Before he was sending lots of troopers, but this time my ally just was building units to defense his base and, by the time the first attack finally arrive, they went against the enemy main base (I talk about ground units, not reinforcements)

Also "Imperials" (since you didn't said anything about sides or colors, I let the game be random; they were Ordos on my game) never send a single unit to defend the defense area; just want to tell you that you have another unknown set to 0; I suggest to pick up the original A4v1 or H4v1 and copy-paste the value there into the unknown.

I don't know what that value do, but I can tell that right now the defence area didn't work on my play.

I started to destroy enemy harverster out of boredom, since there was nothing more to do. The map took me 40 minutes to win, but I speed the game to the max during the last 5-10 minutes or so. I already crushed all the enemy troopers I could with my tank, but in between attacks/reinforcements I couldn't do anything else but taking out more harvester.

About second map:
I used your specifications of no starting units, tech of 4, 4000 initial credits and 1 AI team.

I build a bunch of initial units, but I lost 1 harverster by the time I had almost 5000 credits because the sandworm. I let my ally to defend the base for me while I was harvesting. I had the game playing at max speed so I lost the other harverster and that was the end to me (at 8600 credits).

Probably the second human should be the one that try to gather the quota since their refs are a bit more near the spic,e, but anyway; not a bad map to play with a friend or even possible to win on alone (but playing better than I did).


You really need to add the "noMCV" line into the ini so no more MCV appearing on the middle of the enemy base and no more turrets shooting them for no reason (same with the initial credits and starting units so you no longer need to give us indications of how many money and units we should start with).
