New Red Alert 3 Map - A Place in the Heavens

A Place in the Heavens

By TiberianFiend

This could be Episode 2 of TiberianFiend's popular map Assassin's Shadows. To keep up your levels of fun and enjoyment, he has now completed his next stage with this 4 player Red Alert 3 map expansion. Introducing Player rewards with higher tech equipment for achieving certain goals, this map is yet another high level piece of map making.
With selective options to view an Intro and offer the choice of Clan-type to the players, this map is another must-have for your collection. Already in our downloads section, but if you want a close-up preview, click the thumbnails below.

Author's Description: This is an expansion of my Ninja map Assassin’s Shadows. A Place In The Heavens features a new and extended array of units to use including the Tankbusters, Engineers and the IFV Gunner. The aim of the map will be the same however, it contains extra bonus features, including Control Points and automated defences.

The game begins with a vote to see the intro. If more than 2 people press Execute then the intro will start. If you wait 30 seconds, then you are taken to the clan choice area.

The Clan choice area is used to select the Clan for your units.
This affects the outcome of your units as each Clan has unique benefits and fall backs.
To pick a Clan, just select the unit that represents your clan choice. Traditional units are governed by the Shinobi and Technological units are governed by the Imperial Solider. Selecting a unit will give you a pop up box explaining to click the execute button to select the Clan in question. If you aren't sure which team you want, you can always select Yuriko who governs the random Clan option. Each Clan also have their highlights to help with your selection. Also note that both Clans use the dog unit.

Here are the highlights:
Traditional Clan:
Tsunami Tank
Chrono Swap

Tech Clan:
Allied Spy
IFV Gunner

The main goal of the battle is to own all of the Outposts on the map. Each allied outpost is located either North, South, East or West and the Japanese Radars are found in the center of the map. Only a single player can own all of them to win. Should something be preventing you from claiming your Outposts then infiltrate your enemy's Nano Tech structure to kill them. You can either infiltrate it twice or capture it with an engineer to kill them with one shot.

You can also now call for Higher Tech honours which are bestowed upon you if you hold and control 2 radar tech structures for 2.5 minutes, these include some of the strongest and tactically diverse units your production factories are capable of.

Again, I recommend you play this in a FFA/No teams state and with other human commanders.
