Co-op Mission Essentials
« on: December 17, 2008, 05:45:53 PM »
Gamers and Team,

I have been gifted with Mission Design, what this means for you is your going to have to use your noggin to complete them. Within these missions you will be tasked with specific objectives, strategic locations, targets of opportunity, and my favorite, assasinations.  Using real life military tactics you will without a doubt be challenged, your leadership and teamwork will be the only way you are successful. Because this game is focused on coop (Player vs A.I.) the missions will not be short. I am going to provide you a sample outline for one of these missions. Keep in mind that there will also be mercenary like tasks that will have to be performed in order to reach mission success.

1. Using your team of Mechs your objective is take out the four control points along the enemies main trade routes.  This will slow their production capabilities.

2. Upon completion of OBJ 1 (1st Objective) you will proceed to the production complex OBJ 2, IOT (in order to) disable their Manufacturing Plants, expect heavy resistance within the complex. you are to destroy the radio communication tower, and command center. Second proceed to the solar power facility and destroy the Main Solar Generator, if Power Facility is destroyed prior to team entering Production Complex the Enemies defenses will be drastically reduced.

     -Targets of opportunity @ OBJ 2
       - Unit Housing Buildings 1 and 2
       - Mech Assembly Factory
       - Mech Production Factory

3. Proceed to Rally point and await further instructions.


This is just a sample mission order. Keep in mind that your objectives are not the only things you will have to worry about. Expect to find several Camps and bases protecting these strategic locations. Enemy resistance is unknown in most scenarios.

If you set yourselves up with teams, chances of success will increase, difficulty is greatly increased if you decide to solo some of the objectives. You will find that the jungles of Africa can be a dangerous, history states that you should not trust anyone....

Excellent suggestion for a coop mission. It could help to draw a map of the environment, to visualize the mission area.
I would love to hear more ideas from you :)

I have almost finished three individual missions as part of a variety, sorry i havent posted anything or uploaded. It takes a great deal of editing and patience when designing these missions but overall they will be fun.

Update: The three missions will kind of be a start or introduction to the campaign scenario. Based in the valleys and vegitated areas within africa\'s defense grid most of the enemies and targets will focus on reducing production capabilities. These missions will lead to an intricate plot against america. this should compliment the Main story that takes place in Mech Warfare: Co-op
