Custom Scenarios

Caught in the Crossfire Map

This page lists Outpost 2 scenarios that are reasonably mature, but are not included in the current Outpost 2 community update. These scenarios can be added to your copy of Outpost 2 and played.

Custom scenarios may not be included in the Outpost Universe community update distro for a variety of reasons. The scenarios below are all complete enough to play through. Some have bugs or may be incomplete. Some scenarios below are fully complete and are waiting until the next release to be added to the OPU distro.

For more information about Outpost 2 scenarios and maps in general, see the Outpost 2 Maps Page.

How to install a custom Scenario

Each custom scenario will have a .DLL file that contains the required compiled code. Just place this .DLL file in the root directory of your copy of Outpost 2 (the same folder that contains outpost2.exe). If a scenario has a unique technology tree, the download will come with a .TXT file that contains the new tech tree. If the scenario has a unique map, the download will also contain a .MAP file. If a .TXT and/or a .MAP file is present, place both files in the root Outpost 2 directory as well.

Sometimes the files will be compressed in the ZIP or RAR format. Most operating systems should have built in decompression ability for ZIP file. However, must operating systems will not be able to decompress a RAR file without an external program. For RAR decompression, either 7Zip (http://www.7-zip.org/) or WinRar (http://www.rarlab.com/) may be used.
