"Just Along the Riverside " by WWB2, a custom level for Manic Miners. This level includes custom sound effects; these files should be placed in Levels\ASSETS\SOUNDS in the user's ManicMiners folder.
Objectives: Recover the main base; Find 6 lost Miners; Build the Docks; Find 7 Outposts; Collect 400 crystals
Warning: This mission has some flickering lights and can perhaps startle you with some loud(er) unexpected noises! I recommend not playing this one if you are sensitive to these things! Note: if you are planning to casually play a nice map, this one is not for you. If you enjoy a more challenging map, you might enjoy this one (but it is far from done at the moment).
Just along the Riverside v1 ======= Establishing Transmission Uplink, please stand by ======= Hello Cadet!
I hope you don't mind getting wet! We have recently discovered an underground river bank rich with crystals and ore and have started our mining operation. All went smoothly; until now!
A large earthquake has caused the collapse of many of the nearby caverns, the nearby river has burst out of its banks, and we lost connection with our outposts in the region.
Afterwards, we evacuated everyone we could, but we are still missing a number of miners. Sparks is the only one we managed to keep in contact with. We suspect he snuck off to another secret lunchbreak, and it might have been our saving grace! Guide Sparks back to our main base, get it operational again, and reinforce the area.
It's up to you to build up your base, construct the docks and teleport a rapid rider. Then find the lost bases, get them up and running again, reinforce the area and resume our mining operation by collecting 400 energy crystals!
We prefer to not lose any more equipment than we already have, and so we can only spare the heaviest mining vehicles after you have secured our lost Super Teleport in the region.
To top it all off, this area appears to be a meeting ground for large unidentified creatures of rock and ice. We're sure docs would like to take a closer look, but that is for later; be on your guard Cadet!
Good luck Cadet, you'll need all of it for this one! ===================== End of Transmission ===================== PS: This mission is far from done. I have many more things planned, but for now I think this is still reasonable and enjoyable to play. For a more thorough list of my plans, see the scripts! PPS: For those that like to immediately dive into the scripts before playing this level (you know who you are), this level is best played without spoilers the first time!
NOTE: This level uses custom sounds. They need to be manually inserted like with any custom sounds used in the game.
