"The GLA have ambushed our first and only base in Africa Comrade General. If we lose it completely, we will not be able to influence the east of the continent, nor will we be able to counter the threats from Russia and Europe."

"Our most capable Black Lotus agent has requested you to assist her on this mission, see to it that she locates any survivors and liberates the remaining structures of our base. Once you gain control of the Command Centre, destroy the bridges linking the island to the mainland and eliminate all GLA Tunnel Networks to cut off our enemies so we may re-establish a foothold in the region."

Objective 1: Destroy all GLA units in the Chinese base.

Objective 2: Destroy both bridges and all GLA Tunnel Networks.

Hints:

As you damage the bridges, you may not be able to target them below a certain health %. You will need to force fire to destroy them completely.
This hint will pop-up in-game.

The more survivors you locate, the easier it is to retake the base.



This is the first mission of my Chinese covert campaign. Please give feedback much like my US mission 1 released earlier.

The missions in this campaign are not directly linked to each other, but will tie in with my interpretation of the lore, much like my other campaigns.

This campaign will be Black Lotus heavy, so don't expect to be using a lot of Chinese tech for these missions (apart from the last one wink.gif )

I hope you enjoy this mission and as always,

Good luck, Comrade.

By the way- I don't know if this was intended, but the radar vans in the west base of the GLA before the bridge- they detect some kinds of stealth, I guess, but not Black Lotus though I smashed the base and got all my Battlemaster Tanks to heroic veterancy quite easily by abusing the the the tunnel network rebuilding of the GLA, even before taking my base back.

My original plan was to have the Radar Vans upgraded to detect Black Lotus, but then I thought as it was the first mission I'd go easy. I'm guessing you placed a Signal Transmitter on something in the GLA base? They are easy to detect even without the Radar Van update.

Destroying the GLA base first is fine but you need to take back the Chinese Base before the bridges become destructible so whatever floats your boat.

Is it possible if you can put this mission into a rar file for some of us to download? I can't seem to get it from it's compressed folder because it always gives me an error when I try to extract it from the said folder...

What does the error say? I've never heard of anyone having this issue before.

If you'll give me permission, RDS, since it's your mission, I'll send him several archive formats. If he still has problems with that, well, then I don't know.

I don't know why you'd have issues, but perhaps you could open the file with a different archiving software such as Bandizip, or Winrar? I have both installed, as well as 7zip. I've had no problems with any of the mission archive files uploaded by RedDeadSmeg in the past, so perhaps you should try another archiving software.

That would be a great help, thanks.

That is very strange...have you tried this with other missions I've done?

If so, do they appear under Documents>Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour>Maps?

I don't really know what else to suggest other than jl319 creating a rar folder and putting them on this topic, sorry.

Can somebody check if this mission works on the latest build? It seems to crash on launch on my end.

It's fixed now, turns out the Communications Download shortcut was renamed, so the map.ini crashed the mission on launch.

Here is the fixed version, which will work on 1.87 version 6. there are no other changes to the mission.

That update was done before the latest version , I probably won't update the first 2 missions before I release the entire campaign just in case Hunter updates 1.87 again.

If the RAR files work, by all means use those as I'm only about 70% done with the campaign .

Thanks for playing smile.gif
