< Commander: An asteroid in sector 7C is under attack. The mined out asteroid has been bought and is being repurposed. The plans are for a Casino and Spa, or some thing of a similar nature. The platform foundations and basic power infra-structure and Core housing have been completed, but construction of the development has been put on hold. Over budget and plagued with labour disputes the corporation is searching out investors to finance the completion of the supposed resort. The Labour Unions have been critical of the project claiming it is just a money grab, that it will allow the corporation to steal back the workers wages and/or indenture them into another three year contract, in the Belt. >
< Commander: Your mission is total annihilation of the raiding Aliens. Some of the toxic gases (produced from the mining) have not yet dissipated and are still clinging to the rock. The gases might also be an irritant to the invading Aliens, so prolonging their exposure to it could prove a strategy. Make it so, Commander! >

< Commander: The Aliens are converging upon the Neptune Orbital Command Station. You must leave now, in order to arrive there and start a defence before they attack. There is two enemy troopships being tracked by our sensors. The Station is not going to be easy to defend, it was designed by a popular civilian architect. It meets military specs as far as structural strength and integrity, but no thoughts went towards defence. You will not have time to do any retro-fitting, so you must make do with what is there. Good luck Commander. >

- this map will test you, it is a hard one
- it is almost the opposite of " the Crucible ", instead of relieving stress this might cause it!
- it has been beaten (all cores intact) on Open Elite

< Commander: Another remote facility is under attack! The attacks keep coming with increased frequency. We still appear to have the upper hand, but for how long? If not for your skill and expertise, the Aliens would have quickly over run our defences and stripped us of our resources. We know you are due for some R&R and your mandatory gravity re-conditioning session, but High Command has postponed it. We need you to deal with this attack! >
< The facility itself is barely worth defending. If not for the Cores, we would not bother; as these types of smelters have a very short life expectancy and are considered disposable. They eventually lose structural integrity and burn up. The environmental conditions are extremely hostile. Be safe! Defend the Cores. >

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- this map is for those times when you just want to vent .... hit something ..... shout into a pillow ....
or in the case of DG2 - destroy a bunch of bad-guys and blow shit up!
- the challenge is here and so is the satisfaction of destroying large swarming hordes

- it has been beaten (all cores intact) on Open Elite

< Commander: Another newly constructed manufacturing platform is leaving the Mars heavy fabrication yards. It is heading out-bound to join with a cluster of other platforms on the edge of the asteroid belt. Our scanners indicate a large Alien troopship is on a trajectory to intercept it. Your mission is to set up the defence grid and escort the platform to its destination. >
< Commander: A news crew will be hitching a ride out to the Belt with you. Keep them confined to your transport ship and blind, within the Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency shielding. Insist it is for safety (theirs and ours), insurance reasons, military protocol - what ever it takes. We don't know which side of the political spectrum this news outfit leans, so - keep your cards close to your chest. Your orders are to terminate the raiding Aliens completely, but discretely. >

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

i have noticed that on difficult maps there tends to be one or a few setups that work and once solved, i don't replay them much ....... the maps i replay, most, are the ones that i can play different ways, but they tend to be easier ..... i tried for both - replay-ability and challenge

- this is three different maps in a way, you certainly get your moneys worth 🙂
- choose your poison! - or rather your level of difficulty
- the left side is the hardest
- on this map the challenge is to beat it the three different ways
- i tried to tune it so the scores will be comparable, regardless of the path you choose ..... i gave up trying,
which created another challenge: find the path that gives the higher score

- it has been beaten (all cores intact) on Open Elite - on the hardest path
( thank you ACE aka OCD )

< Commander: One of the lunar mines is under attack. The mine is nick-named "the Hotplate" for a couple of reasons. This mine produces cores that, in the raw state, are so highly radio-active they are stored in a vault, deep underground. The Aliens might be immune to the radiation. Either that, or they are prepared to die for their cause. You will not be able to build defences near the cores so you must choose your towers well. >

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
this map has been beaten on elite ( gold with all cores intact )
- thank you OCD
this map can be played using - long range weapons, by building around the spiral - or short range by building on the platform - or of course a little of both

< Commander : Aliens have focused their attention on a remote manufacturing complex in the asteroid belt. This factory is built on the raw material it processes to make its products. Once the asteroid has been mined out it will be discarded and the factory will latch on to another, like a parasite consuming its host. The manufacturing process uses large amounts of energy that is supplied by a full housing of super enriched cores. >
< Commander : The Aliens have sent several ships on this raid. They want those cores! - Your mission is to protect the cores and exterminate the offending trespassers. >

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- this is a challenge
- there is a fixed version now where the pods are visible
- this map has been tested on open elite and has been beaten, ( gold - all cores kept )
( thank you OCD for testing )
- i had a bit of an issue with mouse sensitivity on this map ..... i think i have it worked out - if the mouse wheel is rotated slowly all is fine

< Commander: The Research Facility and Command Post on Callisto is being targeted. Jupiter's 2nd largest moon - Callisto - is a heavily cratered ball of ice, giving it a mottled blue-ish appearance. The prep for this mission has just been completed and you are cleared to depart, immediately. >
< Commander: I admire your enthusiastic commitment to your job, most people would have become depressed and/or burnt out from running around the solar system keeping one step ahead of the Aliens. The pressure and responsibility involved with your position is substantial. Protecting our assets - by: arriving first, then waiting for the trespass to be established before a defensive posture can begin must be frustrating. Your present defensive policy - the total extermination of the raiding party with extreme prejudice has reduced the numbers of and frequency of the Alien attacks. >
< Commander: If you feel the desire for some R&R , High Command has sanctioned a furlough ( paid, of course ). Ski season in the 'Canadian Rockies' is in full bloom. >

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- this map started out to be a "blast fest" but turned into a naughty/knotty pathing puzzle
- it can be challenge
- it has been beaten (all cores intact) on Open Elite
thank you OCD for testing
- it is ski season and i will be slowing down my map construction activities as i prefer the slopes to the keyboard - the local hill is closed 2 days a week so i will have some time to work on maps ....... if you can get out and enjoy an activity - go for it! - balance your DG2 duties as a Commander with fun activity

< Commander: High Command has been so successful that the Defence Program has faded from popular concerns, resulting in less funds budgeted our way. We need to come up with a better strategy than chasing the Aliens all over the Solar System. >
< The moon Ganymede, Jupiter's largest, has had many attempts at Terra-Forming and is starting to support a life sustaining atmosphere. It is far too cold for most forms of life, but carbon and oxygen are starting to cycle. There is a large building complex there that was used to house the workers during the construction of the Terra-Forming engines. High Command has commandeered it to house a remote " Think Tank ", to explore inexpensive and effective alternatives to the present policy of pursuit and exterminate - find a smarter way to fight. >
< Commander: They must be threatened by the research this facility is exploring because the moon has been attacked by the Alien hordes. It is not a high yield target in terms of Core capacity. The only reason for this offensive is the Aliens are afraid, and seek to eliminate the threat. The Aliens seem to have "bigger jock straps than helmets" ( more balls than brains ) to attack this complex, or they are truly scared - we have the advantage with plenty of resources and room for towers . >
< Commander: Your Mission is to protect the installation and establish a viable defence grid on the moon. >

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- thanks to an idea of OCD's, this map was an attempt at something a little different:
- it didn't work out as originally conceived ( due to limitations in the game itself ) - but - the map still offers a fun challenge
- it has been tested and beaten on Open Elite
- Gold achieved with all Cores intact

Modes:
story: ..................................... 36 waves assorted aliens - practice mode
story leaderboard: .......... 36 waves assorted aliens - compare score with others
super grinder: ................... 150 waves of assorted aliens

< Commander: One of our toxic waste facilities is under attack. Cold Blue 2 is a small sealed vault of extremely deadly nuclear and toxic industrial effluent. Due to danger to all forms of life from these nasty substances the "Cold Blue" satellites are on an severe furthermost orbit that is 90 degrees to the planetary plane. Pluto crosses this orbit every 124 years - twice in its trip around the sun at its aphelions (farthest points of its eliptical orbit ). >
< Commander : The satellite is small and not a lot of real estate to build on. We trust you will dispatch this crisis with your usual speed and efficiency. >

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- this map has: - a few pathing options - a whole mess of aliens - even more resources - and Gold should be easily achievable
- I trust it will provide an enjoyable and fun challenge.

< Commander : The rings of Uranus have been found to contain small clusters of crystal asteroids, we had previously thought them to be ice. The discovery was not new, as we had presumed. Evidence shows that a pirate company had secretly set up on one and 'poached' all the obtainable crystal they could, right down to the incredibly hard center. It seems that the pirates fled before they could complete the 'mop up', and had to leave a fully loaded and charged Core Housing behind. It is uncertain whether they would have removed the rings of tracks left over from the mining. >
< Commander : Your mission is to secure the Cores and clean up the mess that was left behind. Our Forensics Team has already been there and High Command is pursuing the Pirates. >

the difference between the difficulty levels is pronounced for this map - making it hard to provide a challenge for all - i hope i achieved that goal
