SpaceOrc Charlie Patrol

Submitted by Big Dub
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This is a single player map I made to show off my terraining skills. I am trying to get into the team to make this campaign and they do not want any blizzard cliffs apparently so I made this.
The game is pretty self explanatory, and yes it is possible to beat. I did it myself with three limping units remaining.

You get some units to start with, and you follow the quest. It is very simple.

This is not so much a campaign as it is a single mission. The campaign is just the closest thing I could find as to how the gameplay works out.

So...

In the game you receive a squad of Space Orcs. You are on a regular patrol when Command calls and tells you another patrol has failed to report in, your job is to find the other patrol, and finish your own.

As I said in the beginning I made this map to show off the terrain. I just wanted a little gameplay to go with it.

Someone wanted screenshots so...

    Impossible, I lost all units except 1 by the big camp before completing the 1st mission. Then had to turn on whosyourdaddy. So no, impossible.

    Barathrum it is not impossible. It is just difficult. The key is to string out the enemy. The Ursa warrior will tear through your men if you let him. I fight my way to the waterfall and leave all my men at the bottom, then I send one unit up the slope and bring down all the creeps. The creeps get to the lake at the bottom of the waterfall and hit a natural chokehold blocked by my unit. He takes the hits as the medic heals him and I kill all the creeps except the Ursa and Shaman. I repeat until the Ursa is almost dead then just charge up the hill and kill them both. The last creep camp is difficult, but if you use your rocketeers as the tanks, because they have medium armor and take reduced, it is not too hard. You just have to micro like crazy. The less you let die the better you will do. But no it is not impossible.

    I just beat the map with only losing one unit. It is not impossible, you just aren't very good at microing.

    I will update the map description.

    far from impossible, using the same tactic Big Dub suggested and allowing my medic to heal all my orcs before the next fight, I in total only lost 2 grunts.

    Enjoyed the terrain, looked good, and I loved how the water looked for some reason XD wish you could have given the medic Brilliance Aura or a faster mana regen though XD only complaint I have is that this isnt a campaign, I think I'd really like a space orc campaign of some type (maybe remove a grunt and add a main hero character though) ^_^

    About Terrain:
    Nearly perfect! Good job dude! But that alien planet can be more alien

    :thumbs_up: Fog
    :thumbs_up:Custom doodads (Imported)
    :thumbs_up:Large number of environment doodads

    :razz:Change sky color to green
    :razz:Add more doodads like Vines Cliffside, Outland Plants (set red color to 0), Rubble (from Sunken Ruins set size from 2 to 5 so it can simulate lost civilization)
    :razz:Place doodads around trees pathing ground and add pathing blockers (make alien jungle fast and easy way)

    :thumbs_down:Water dude, it is awesome but you must scale up water and place it as one piece!
    :thumbs_down:Special and Light Effects (Add some)

    Now About game play:
    Poor, you better delete all that, increase map size, add more doodads and upload map as template!

    :thumbs_up:Good import models
    :thumbs_down:Rocket isn't splash
    :thumbs_down:Only one quest, game looks like mission from campaign!
    :thumbs_down:Creeps are poor, add them more abilities

    Once again good job! (terrain :razz:):thumbs_up:

    Big Dub made this map to show his terraining skills. He designed it to become part of the Space Orcs Campaign Project, so there is going to be a campaign, you'll just have to be patient :wink:
