The map puts you as a leader of a GLA Scorpion Cell base, deep in the mountains near Saudi Arabia. You're attempting to gain control of the region once and for all, but the USA has other plans in mind. They have constructed an incredibly powerful prototype weapon in the region. The prototype is only known as "Project Aurora." GLA spies discovered this when they raided the last USA base in Europe, 3 months earlier (china mission 5). The documents were taken from the base to the GLA leaders, and they have ordered you to find and destroy the project, which is still being worked on. Soon, however, you realize the USA doesn't want to lose this valuable piece of weaponry. You have an hour to find and destroy the project, before they can get it operational and destroy your base.
The "Project Aurora" is a very advanced superweapon. To most people, that is its name, but to the leaders of the USA, it is called by its true name, the Particle Uplink Array. With the power of 8 particle cannons in 1 building, it can rain destruction on its opponents. When it beams it into outer space, there is also a difference. Instead of 1 satellite, it is actually 1 large satellite and a group of 8 smaller satellites. It can either beam up all the power to the main satellite and fire, or it can beam it up to the main satellite, which then beams it to the 8 companion satellites, which then fire.
The map is quite different from my other maps, in many ways. First, it has a dam with a river. Second, it HAS a river (until now i never figured it out really). Third, the river actually has a fork in it, becoming 2 rivers (it took me almost an hour to do that). Fourth, it will have a massive enemy base that will send air strikes and other forces. Fifth, it will be HEAVILY modded, for advanced techtrees and weaponry (for example, the China command center will produce usa dozers, which in turn build special buildings, like the stolen patriot missile launcher, which has been outfitted with rocket buggy missiles). Sixth, other than the Particle Uplink Array, there are NO superweapons. No scud storm. No nuke. Nothing for you. Seventh, the Sentinal Factory is a tech building now, and produces light vehicles, such as the humvee or sentry drone. And eighth, it will have beautiful terrain, far beyond any map I've made. including Against All Odds.
I hope you all look forward to playing Operation: Sting of the Scorpion.
