    2 Official Description (HELP files)

    Quote

    An off-world species, the Mykonians are tapping into the very core of our planet with their devastating Parasite Machine, extracting energy to power their attacks. Their weapons technology is more advanced than ours.

    It is interesting to note that all Mykonian vehicles are symmetrical polygons in shape. This is the result of their biovein contruction, which forms in crystalline symmetry in zero-gravity space. The Mykonians are a much more powerful race than your other terran foes and possesses technology unknown to humans. So do not be seduced by their awesome sight. Diplomacy has failed. They want our planet.

    3 Overview

    The Mykonian is an extraterrestrial, imperialistic invader group who disdain humanity for wasting a precious planet. They view Earth as a valuable battery and use the Parasite Machine to harvest energy from the Earth's core. All Mykonian vehicles use ion cannons, and are symmetrical polygons in shape. This is the result of their biovein construction, which forms in crystalline symmetry in zero-gravity space. The Mykonians are typically located in Northern Europe and Scandinavia within their assimilated biocable-infested environments, where the optimal cooling temperatures facilitate their superconductive data transfer and war machines operations.

    5 Playability

    Yes. (The faction is designed as a playable main faction in the game for human players, and forms an integral part of the multiplayer balance system between the other playable main factions.)


    6 Lore information

    The Mykonians are a highly advanced extra-terrestrial and imperialistic invader group who disdains humanity for their bad planet management. They view the planet Earth as a valuable energy battery and implant the Parasite Machine to harvest heat directly from the Earth's core. All Mykonian units possess characteristic geometric shapes. This is the result of their biovein construction, which forms in crystalline symmetry in zero-gravity space. The Mykonians are typically located in Northern Europe and Scandinavia within their superconductive biovein-assimilated environments, where their data transfer and operations are optimal and their vehicles and buildings blend in with the surroundings.


    All Mykonian vehicles are technologically advanced ionocraft that can operate in normal atmospheric pressure, and the weaponry of their hyper-speed ion-propelled aircraft are Ion Cannons. These advanced directed energy weapons are extremely powerful and their projectiles also travel very fast compared to human weapons technology. The Mykonians use their cables to assimilate domed cities under their control, rendering the areas completely uninhabitable for an indefinite time. It is also mentioned that Mykonians had connection with the Earth before humans. The destruction of the Parasite Machine is the focus and the main objective of the original single-player campaign, which appears in the very final mission where the player (SDU7) must disable the device before it reaches the final phase.


    7 Characteristics

    The Mykonians are considered an aggressive faction. The Mykonians possess many advanced flying or hovering ionocraft units that are highly manoeuvrable and agile. These units are generally more expensive and also have minimal shielding capabilities, but they all possess extremely powerful ion cannon weapons that can inflict heavy damage in a short time frame. This combination of awesome firepower and agile manoeuvrability grants the Mykonians a huge advantage at taking initiative in offensive operations by constantly employing raid tactics. These traits are especially more powerful when their units are controlled by the players, who can maximise their micromanagement potential.


    In single-player, the Mykonian host station has only one turret which fires a powerful rapid-fire ion cannon, but with a very short projectile range. It can also build only one class of power station. In multiplayer, the Mykonians can build power stations with similar classifications as the other factions, and their Myko Station has the same number (4) of turrets with more or less equalised firepower and range as the other factions for balance. The AI Mykonian enemy faction in single-player also has two main disadvantages: They cannot create their only general-purpose tank unit Ground Cube, and the fact that Mykonians are a faction designed to be most effective when controlled by the players.
