Deimos Moon Base, Anguilla Crater Moondate 56-9-4: A routine satellite terrain survey reveals EM anomalies within the Uca Crater. A terrain patrol squad is sent to investigate. Moondate 56-10-2: The patrol investigating the Uca Crater fails to report in for the fourth consecutive check-time. UAC Central decides to send a Drop Squad to investigate. Moondate 56-10-7: The storm-trooper transport, Aquarius, parks in an orbit above the Uca Crater. A Drop Squad descends into the crater while the Aquarius conducts sensor analysis. Moondate 56-10-7.2: At Mission Time Elapsed (MTE) 0020, Deimos Moon Base receives an urgent message from the Aquarius, citing hostile fire from the Uca Base. The Aquarius is ordered to retrieve the Drop Squad and return immediatly to base by UAC Central. Moondate 56-10-7.3: Contact with the Aquarius is lost. MD 56-11-5: The wreckage of a spacecraft, identified as the remains of the Aquarius, is discovered. The mission recorder is removed from the wreckage and sent to C-Lab for data retrieval. MD 56-11-9: Though severely damaged during the crash, the mission recorder reveals that shortly after the Drop Squad left the Aquarius, the transport was attacked by ground-level pulse cannons. Nav Control was damaged, and as the Aquarius attempted an emergency retreat to base, it crashed. The fate of the Drop Squad and the regular patrol remain unknown. MD 56-14-0: UAC Central, having analysed the available information, hypothesizes that the hostiles responsible for the infiltration of Phobos Base months earlier have returned and commenced construction of a clandestine base on Deimos. Most probably, the base is still under construction, using UAC technology stolen from the Phobos Base. The Uca Crater Base must be infiltrated, and its layout must be determined. UAC Central decides to risk another Drop Squad, this time a heavily armed one. Mission operatives are to inflict maximal damage to the base while recording the hostile base's layout so that UAC Central may determine how best to proceeed to neutralize this new threat. Squad survival is of the utmost importance. The transport, Gateway, will drop Red Squad and ascend to safer high altitudes. There, it will wait until Red Squad has re-emerged. The mission has been codenamed Operation UCA. MD 56-14-5: Gateway arrives at the coordinates of the Uca Base under heavy cloak. Red Squad quickly makes a drop as the Gateway ascends into a high orbit. Red Squad begins its descent into the Uca Base.... --------- As Red Squad descends, it is ambushed by a huge horde of demons. The squad never stands a chance. One by one, the soldiers are cut down and butchered without warning. You are one of the last men still standing, though the attack has exhausted your store of munitions. Wearily, you wave your pistol into the face of a charging demon, ready to greet death with valor....... .....but in stepping backwards to brace yourself for the impending impact, you inadvertently trigger a teleporter. There is a flash of bright green, and as your eyes and body re-adjust, you find yourself staring into an unfamilar wall... Welcome to uca.zip. This mission replaces e2m1. This is also the first WAD I've constructed, using DEU5.1 and BSP1.0. I hope you enjoy it. If so, or if not, please give me feedback so I know how to make my next one even better. This is a slightly revised version of UCA. Players probably won't notice any real changes in gameplay. Anyways, UCA now supports coop player mode but NOT deathmatch. I probably wouldn't have bothered to upload this revised version, except that the original uploaded version somehow "disappeared." So, I am re-uploading, and why not make a few small changes? :) UCA is challenging, but definitely possible to complete. Believe me, I've play-tested it often enough. :-) If you enjoy UCA, try out TALPOIDA, the follow-up. And after TALPOIDA, the storyline continues in DIOPATRA. I am currently figuring out what I want to do for the fourth level in my hopefully 9-level episode. After all, your soldier is still stuck and lost within the hostile base....he still has to make it back to the surface alive to make rendezvous with the Gateway... :-) Happy Hunting!
