Beta 1. Transport under attack?

Hi all!

I am playing warzone2100-master-20180928-122314-de6b592_x86_portable

Is there any possibility to transport all the units from Alpha? I am playing on insane difficulty. At some point I have a message "Transport under attack" and transported units are lost. No more transportations are available.

Is it a random odd situation, or do I have a limited number of transport launches?

The number of transports is limited. You have four transports for your experienced units, the fifth will always be shot. In beta 02 you will have to save the units of this fifth transport. But the game will not give you the units you put in the fifth transporter. So if you want to transport all the experience your units gained in the alpha mission to the beta mission you have to send 40 units with the first four transports and has to recycle the rest. The experience of your recycled units is saved and the units you produce in beta 01 will get this saved experience.

BTW, what do you think about insane difficulty so far?

Sometimes it is really very difficult. My style of play is not for insane difficulty at all. I dont like to rush and prefer to besiege. So, sometimes I use a "time toggle" cheat :blush2:

I have advanced to Beta-11. I have to transport as many units to Gamma as I can.

Is there also any limit to the number of units I can transport? Will all the transported units appear in Gamma-1?

Yep, you get to transport up to four loads of units for a total of 40 units. All of which can be brought over to Gamma 1.

Please take care, there is still a saveload bug in this level. See ticket #3009

And as with the transition alpha/beta the experience of your in beta mission recycled units is saved.

@ Berserk Cyborg and alfred007
Thanks for clarification!

I've also noticed there is no transport timer in Beta-11 when you load and launch the transport. It seems it take 10 minutes for transport to come back.

The transporter reenters the map 7 minutes after he left the map. This time is set in the level script. Adding the time the transporter needs to leave the map and the time he needs to land in the LZ after he reentered the map you can start every 8-9 minutes a transporter. So let us calculate that: You can start a transporter at minute 1, 10, 19 and 28 with a 30 minutes timer in beta 11. This means you should make the decision which units you want to put into the transporter during beta 10. Then you don't waste your precious time in beta 11 with this decision. I make four groups at the end of beta 10 and give every group a number. So when the transporter lands I send group 1 to the first transporter, group 2 to the second and so on.

An information in advance: We added ground reinforcements for Nexus in gamma 3 (same place as the ground reinforcements in the NE during gamma 5) and the reinforcements in the transporters are coming until both bases in the east and the west are destroyed.

Good luck for Gamma mission.
