Trooper Style Skirmish - Version 1.1 ------------------------------------
This map originally was part of the Imp Co-Op mod by Imp Hunter. I have had a few requests to have it released with AI Marines to aid the Player in Single Player Skirmish, so here it is.
If you haven't tried out the Imp Co-Op Mod, then give it a shot. The latest version '2.something' is now available to download:
This is a Marine only Single Player only version of the Trooper Style map that appears in the Imp Co-Op mod. To Play this map in Multiplayer, go and download the mod.
Many small changes have been made to this map to cater for Single Player Skirmish including the addition of 3 Marine helper bots to assist defend the stockade. To have them follow the Player, select them the way you would use a door and they will follow you. Selecting them a second time will order them to stop and stand their ground. They may not be perfect, but certainly are better than nothing.
To start the Alien AI swarm, access the compound's upper wall walkway and open both of the Ammo boxes found there. The AI will only trigger once both boxes have been selected. The boxes can then be selected as usual but have no effect on the AI. Once the Aliens start their attack, the stockade doors will not re-open. You can fight either inside or outside the stockade once the AI has been triggered if you want to jump over the wall. Place your troops where you think is appropriate.
