Omega Squadron Instant Action Map Pack

Description
The bonus instant action maps from the Omega Squadron Map pack are headed to Redux.

Included in this pack are the base vs. base, player versus AI Instant Action maps that were originally included in the Omega Squadron Map Pack. These maps are based on their Strategy and MPI counterparts, (some of which can currently be found in the Omega Squadron Multiplayer Map Pack) but are adapted for Instant Action with a few tweaks. They all utilize the base-building, advanced-strategy-changing AI featuring in Omega Squadron MPI/MPM maps. You will get tanks, APCs, walkers, howitzers, bombers, and sometimes a little of everything sent against your base. The AI will build a base from scratch and rebuild it if it has enough scrap. It will lay minefields to impede your progress. It will use its armory to upgrade and repair its units and defenses. ...Good luck!

Update 06/11/16:
-Taught the AI how to use its Armory:
  • Launches gun tower, turret, and vehicle upgrades
  • Repairs damaged buildings and units
  • Likes to spy on your base
  • Will Wreck your Day if you aren't careful
-Decreased general AI difficulty slightly
-Lots of internal fixes

Current Maps:
Craters
Mars Fate
Strain III
Icesabre
Vulcanus
Tharsis Mons
Beachhead
Chthon
Hemorrhage
Altar

Comming Soon(ish):
Switchback
Demotion
Alecto
Adversus Machina
Hills of Peace
Nemesis

CHEATS:
The Omega Squadron Instant Action Map pack includes several modded cheat codes to expand gameplay and increase replayability! These cheats only work on maps in this pack, or that otherwise include the necessary lua script.

CTRL+SHIFT+IAMNSDF - removes player units and gives the player an NSDF recycler and scout
CTRL+SHIFT+IAMCCA - removes player units and gives the player a CCA recycler and scout
CTRL+SHIFT+IAMBDOG - removes player units and gives the player a Black Dog recycler and scout
CTRL+SHIFT+NEWAI[NUM][FACTION] - removes the units of the specified AI team (first AI team is 1, and so on) and generates a new recycler and a few units of the specified faction for that team instead. Examples: NEWAI1NSDF will remove the units of the first AI team, and give an NSDF recycler and units (NEWAI1CCA would do the same but replace with CCA recycler and units).
CTRL+SHIFT+DEATHWISH - gives the AI an absurd amount of scrap
CTRL+SHIFT+LANDER - gives the player a Lander
CTRL+SHIFT+CLOAK - gives the player double the cloaking
CTRL+SHIFT+STRATLOCK - prevents the AI from changing strategies
CTRL+SHIFT+ACHILLES - makes the ground very unstable
CTRL+SHIFT+UPGRADES - gives upgrades to a few units
CTRL+SHIFT+RAVE - gives out rave guns like candy
CTRL+SHIFT+MINISNIPES - ?
CTRL+SHIFT+GOOFBALL - ??
CTRL+SHIFT+CRICKET - ???

Notice that with the combination of the IAM and NEWAI cheats, it is possible to play any of these maps as either faction (+black dogs), against either faction.

Please post thoughts, comments, bugs, whishes and hopes below!

Whenever I build the repair and ammo, a LUA script error pops up telling me it can't get a team number.

I keep getting these weird LUA error messages while playing the very first mission as CCA.

I like these missions alot but how far are you into the process of implementing the rest?

Sie meisten Maps sind nicht spielbar, die die spielbar sind sind absolut unbalanced und der Gegner überrennt innerhab der ersten Minuten die komplette Base. Kann die Mod leider absolut nicht empfehlen, spielt lieber den Multiplayer, da habt ihr eine größere Chance zu gewinnen :-)

The chinese are now playable using the IAM command as it is in description, but please change the factory to make howitzers, and walkers and move the tug to the nineth option in the recycler please!!! I also feel I should mention this is my favorite IA map pack!
