In 2.0 there was a stolen tech unit called the Decimator Tank. THAT was OP. And Purposefully so, considering it was the equivient of the Cyborg Commando.
How were you able to acquire the decimator tank? Now I'm thinking about reinstalling MO 2.0 just so I can get the tank to test for myself.
Infiltrate all battle labs and have all 3 tech trees. You'd get access to the Phalanx Tank (basically a Quickshifter), the Apollo Bot (a fast, tiny robot that can MC units and buildings) and the Decimator tank (a T5 monster tank that could wreck an AI base all by himself).
I'm currently in the process of making a series of maps based on what I think this world would look like at different stages. One prior to WWII, one prior to WWIII, one prior to the MO War, and one the current status of the MO War. The maps themselves are done, but I'm still in the process of writing descriptions for them. I'm trying to stick as close as I can to the info given in-game, but that info is not very specific. I'm fine with that, because then everyone can have different views on how they think the world would look.
On my second playthrough of this mission, I discovered that it is possible to kill Rashidi (for realsies). Destroy all the SC forces save Rashidi's Palace and one Naval Yard. Make a bunch of Duneriders (25-ish) and have them blob up around the secret cave. Have Libra nearby. Destroy Rashidi's Palace. When the Jackal Racer spawns, it will be trapped and unable to get through the Dunerider blob. Carefully move a few Duneriders out of the way so Libra can get close to the Jackal and activate her gravity field. Sit back and watch as the Jackal either gets flung into the cliffside or into the water and violently explodes.
Here are some maps I made from across the MO timeline. These are made based on info from Mental Omega and Red Alert 1, as well as some historical influences and personal inferences. These are NOT official maps. Just my interpretation of how the world would look right before the start of World War 2, World War 3, and the Mental Omega War.
