What is this?
"Amber Sun" is the follow-up to the "Crimson Moon" campaign. It continues the story over the course of 10 missions. Featuring high quality terrain, recurring characters, new characters and top-of-the-shelf story-telling, the campaign will take you to many places, including dead cities, shallow water grounds, heavily guarded installations, fogged fields, and perhaps even locations you might remember from the previous installment. The emphasis on gameplay originality is higher than ever, with little overlap between missions. Hopefully the maps will both challenge and entertain you.
- Rescue colonists while battling an invading enemy.
- Destroy cooling towers to divert one enemy to another in a three-way battle.

How to play
- Download the file on your computer, and unzip.
- The maps should be placed in a folder named "Amber Sun" in the "Maps" folder. If the placement is wrong, the maps won't connect.
- No mod is required.
- When starting the campaign, use the mission launcher, which lets you choose which mission you want to play (note: the mission launcher has not yet been created, so just start the first map).
