Destiny of Cao V2 campaign

Author File Description
File Details
Origin: Custom
Score: varies
Population: varies
Difficulty: Very Hard
Mission 4 and 6; I purposely didn't build the cities to show 'novice players' how to get past these cities without using the 'I win again' cheat. They are probably the most challenging 2 missions if the cities are built.

Thank you for posting these cities, they are excellent work.

Last year I did post my examples of missions 4 ('Fortress City of Dun') and 7 ('Ji, Home of the Temple of the Bronze Bird'), which can be found with a patient search of the 'completed cities' download section, but I never got around to posting my versions of the other missions.

Some comments on your saved games:

Mission 1 - A great example of showing how this mission should not be dismissed as a 'storyline gimmick', since it will be continued in the last mission of the campaign. You can get a great head-start in mission 8 if you begin the city now.

Mission 2 & 3 - You illustrate the advantage of far exceeding the mission goals. When mission 3 starts (which is a continuation of m2), all conditions are met and only 1 month needs to be played.

Mission 4 - Believe it or not, I didn't realize the mission could be won by NOT building anything, and just letting the mission play out. I decided to see if this was caused by the pak file being created pre-patch. I regenerated a special post-patch version of this campaign, and tried this strategy in m4. It worked exactly the same, and victory was achieved by doing nothing. Moral of story: test more thoroughly! Designer Tip: always put at least one other mission goal in a mission with a 'survival' time limit.

Mission 5 - Again proves how a sweeping victory can be achieved by quick build-up in the earlier missions on this map.

Mission 6 - Same comments as mission 4.

Mission 7 - Very impressive speed on completing the monument. Also, I admired your placement of trading posts and jade carver studios, which maximized trade cycling and profits.

Mission 8 - You put together a very powerful build here. I noticed you did have bad luck with the timing of the earthquake, as it struck during your defensive battle. The probability of that occuring is less than 20%, but it does make things a bit more interesting! Congrats on winning the mission in exceptional time.
