< 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

--------- modes ---------

< 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
grinder: ................................ 100 waves of walkers with a Boss wave at the end

enjoy!

< 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.
- it has been tested and beaten on Open Elite ( thank you, OCD )

Modes:
story: ....................................... 36 waves assorted aliens - for practice and testing of strategies
story leaderboard: ............. 36 waves assorted aliens - compare score with others

< 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

< Commander: Constructions clinging to the crystal comet create a convoluted course, that connects the conniving, core-craving critters to the crucial crystal cave carved in the center of the crystalline cliff. >
< Commander: You must concisely curtail the critter's current campaign to capture our core casings. Keep the Cores at all costs! >

. . ~Tug Boat Annie ~ . .
< Commander : "Annie" the space tug is being attacked. She is en-route back to the space yards in the asteroid zone, after being retro-fitted with a new housing that holds the super enriched Cores. >
< Intel predicts large swarms to this raid and says to remember the Alien's peculiar magnetic physiology - use the mag-lifts and mag-tracks. With the limited space for defensive towers, it might be the only way for a decisive victory. >
< "Annie" is an ancient veteran of the fleet, over 100 years old. She is carrying a still functioning "Canadarm". There has been talk of putting her in a museum, but she is just too damn useful and dependable to retire. >
< Commander : Your Mission is to eliminate the current threat and escort "Annie", the rest of the way, back to the yards. Good Luck! >

tested and completed (no cores lost) on OE

< Commander: High Command has moved its headquarters to a converted space barge. >
< The political climate and extremist factions are interfering with operations. They are not only imposing financial limitations, but they are now trying to direct Military and Defence policy. There is a populist movement suggesting that the aliens are peaceful and we are the aggressors. They claim that the Aliens are only after the Cores and have never actually attacked a human or destroyed an installation. Two years ago the political climate would have had us track down and destroy the Aliens home world. >
< Moving to Space allows High Command the autonomy to do what is required, not what is politically correct or in fashion. >
< In a bold strike or suicidal raid the Aliens are attacking the new Mobile Command HQ. Intelligence believes this to be a distractive deployment, not a 'kamikaze' attack. Make certain the ClassXI Cheetah is prepared to disembark as soon as you negate this threat. There is a good possibility that you will need to be somewhere else as fast as can be achieved. >
< Commander: Good Luck! >

~ ~ Leary Space Depot ~ ~

< Commander: The Leary Space Depot, established on the asteroid LSD-25, has been targeted for attack. The energies in that sector are very strange and can alter perception. It can be quite unsettling or mind expanding, depending on your psychological profile. >
< Commander: Have a nice trip. Remember to keep your mind on the task, and .. ahh...don't drink the Kool-Aid! >

< Commander: Aliens are attacking again. This time it is an empty barge slowly making its way inward to the Orbiting Martian Manufacturing Station for repairs and a defensive refitting. Due to the current fiscal restraints the barge is without escort. >
< Commander: The Aliens are taking advantage of this apparent oversight on our part and are attempting to steal the cores from the barge's power supply. There are three enemy Troop Ships converging on the barge, be prepared for a fight! >
< Commander: High Command has decided that after this mission the XI Cheetah will be refitted with permanent living quarters. You have been zipping about the solar system more or less non-stop from one attack to the next. It will be your new home. >
< Don't worry, it will not be stark and barracks like, it will have some personal comforts. Living aboard ship might give you more time to rest and recuperate than when you were stationed at the base. Anyway, keep up the good work! >

i believe this map will provide a challenge
it has been beaten on Open Elite

story - practice, try set ups

< Commander: The Aliens have been focusing on our remote outposts. Our sensors have extrapolated the intended destination. It is good that you have the Class XI Cheetah at your disposal. You will need it to get to the targeted facility, before the enemy does! >
