- New languages: Italian, Russian, Polish and Czech - Added Platinum and Titanium map packs. (18 new maps total) - Added SuperStorm Mod V3:
SuperStorm adds teaming options (with human players and AI), additional resource options, weather and some other features to Skirmish and Multiplayer modes in Earth 2160.
To play a SS Structures game, select it from the Game Type: drop-down box. This works the same as Destroy Structures but with the following options:
Team Options: This automatically puts players into teams, whether they're human or AI players. The alliances are handled automatically. The following options are available: Free For All: All players against all players. Teams of [One-Five]: Team players up (counted by order of players) Teams as Factions: Team players of the same faction together No Automatic Alliances (multiplayer only): No automatic alliances made, so AIs will attack human players and human players will start allied with no-one. AI vs Human (single-player only): AI only targets you. Resource Options: This contains both Destroy Structures and Uncle Sam options. Options available: Mining: Destroy Structures default Mining (4-16x resources): Makes resources last 4x- 16x longer depending on option. Uncle Sam (1000-15000): No mining, and players get selected resources per minute. Unlimited: No limit to resource usage. Weather: Adds weather to the game. Environmental feature :) Options available: None, Rain, Wind, Rain and Wind. Special Options: Some other features of SuperStorm can be activated here: Normal: No special option. Map Objects On: Leaves on the units and buildings the map maker put on Explored Map: Removes fog of war on the map Observer (single-player only): Allows you to watch AI players battling it out - they will ignore you.
Destroy Structures also has the following features:
Live stats: the game displays the following stats as the game goes on: Time: Players notified of the time every minute Personal kills: Players are notified of their personal totals every 25 kills they make Game kills: Players are notified of the total game kill count every 50 kills Unit destruction: Unlike the normal game, SS Structures destroys all player units when they are defeated.
