Thanks, glad to read something interesting after a while.
The "Fire Turret Exploit" is so cool. I've never thought of doing that :)
I find the "Military Fortress" pretty difficult at the beginning and I'm still having issues trying to destroy the Satellite Uplink. If you have any tactics for this part I would be more than happy to read them.
As soon as I get a triple plasma cannon knight, then with some luck I can shred enemy to pieces using this guy alone ^^
I also find "Take the Pass" and "Behind Enemy Lines" to be the best missions but I don't agree in regards to "Disable Relay Station Force Shield". This mission is different, challanging and you can't really use your 1st person advantage with wasps and on such small ground area.
Hi. I had basically the same experience. I had the demo which I played quite a lot which came on Turok 2 CD. I liked the machine designs, their voices and colorful graphics. It is one of the first games I installed myself and first RTS game I ever played. I downloaded the full version from the old forums in 2008, but I actually have not finished it until 2 years ago. It is a very hard game and I probably would not be able to finish it if I played when I was a kid.
There is not much activity here, but you can check out the discord community. I'm not a fan of it, but unfortunately forums are not popular these days.
Here's a post where I'll place resources from the past two projects we worked on.
