Hi everyone

I'm kinda new to this forum so i'm not really sure if this is the right place to post this.

 

A while back me and some friends started playing contra again, it's our favorite mod.

I noticed that many people (not everyone) always choose the same army and you would eventually be able to predict their strategy if you play with them long enough. So to add someting extra to the game I created an .scb file for the world builder for use with the contra mod.

 

With this script you can schoose a second army, which opens a whole new world of possibilities. For example stealth buggy's with nuke soldiers insode, stealthed mobile barracks or speaker towers near GLA defences. It supports up to 8 players (or up to 4 players with a third army).

 

Choosing your 2nd army in 3 easy steps:

Step 1:

Destroy one of the faction tanks that are spawned at a specified waypoint (inner perimeter). You can choose GLA, China or USA.

Step 2:

Destroy one of the general tanks that are spawned at the same specified waypoint. You can schoose one of the four generals of you previously chosen faction.

Step 3:

Put one infantry unit in the unmanned dozer/mobile supply truck that appears. The waypoint where this unit appears is marked by a dollar crate at the star of the game. You can't build a command center so once the unit is destroyed a new unmanned dozer/mobile supply truck wil be spawned.

 

For example:

If I want Nuke general as my second army. First I destroy the Chinese tank and second I destroy the nuke launcher then my Nuke general dozer wil appear.

If I want Super weapon general as my second army. First I destroy the USA tank and second I destroy the humvee then my Super Weapon general dozer wil appear.

If I want Poison general as my second army. First I destroy the GLA tank and second I destroy the toxin tractor then my Poison general mobile supply stash wil appear.

etc.

 

Once you import the script into your map it adds all the waypoints you need in the bottom left of the map. The only thing you need to add manually is the 'Skirmish World' area around the whole map.

You can also make use of this in king of the hill maps where the first who conquers the hill wil be able to choose a second army. From you second general you won't be able to build a command center, super weapons or super units and ofcourse you can only use specials like paradrop and GPS-scrambler etc. if this is you main general.

 

Anyway...

I wish to share this script with you guys, but i'm not allowed to upload .scb files. What is the best place to share this stuff?

Make a WinRAR file and put the .scb in it. You'll be able to upload it then.
