Little did the Lunar Corporation know the impact they made by the time their space research facility's goals after 2002 would allow human space travel, space exploration monopoly and even the exploitation of space itself! NASA's technology was then absorbed by them during the 2012 to 2014 crisis. Orbital City 1 attracted a company employee flight for safety away from Earth's economic chaos. After failed attempts of a second city in 2036 and the company's first permanent base on the moon in 2037, all of the residents of Orbital City 1 were evacuated to the moon called Luna 1 when the Great War broke out on Earth. As a result, the Lunar Corporation severed ties with its mother planet to follow an independent development path, with a second city finally completed years later (Luna 2).
Earth laid in ruins after several more years of war which led to anarchy. America's 12 previous states were later reorganized into the United Civilized States (UCS). Eastern Europe and Asia's representatives -- the Kahn Clan -- built a new country called the Eurasian Dynasty (ED). As respective territorial neighbors, no other power on Earth could match them. However, in the year 2147, it was inevitable that war was the only choice they had in order to feed the power-hungry rulers of each empire, and thus the ED and UCS staged an act of war against each other. The solar orbit was then adversely affected as Lunar Corporation's scientists correctly interpreted that the future disaster by 2150 would lead to the further shrinking distance between the Sun and the Earth by about 17 percent.
No one cooperated for a mass migration to Mars, which was the only hope for the survival of mankind. And thus, without resources available to pour into the project due to the war forcing all scientific activity toward weaponry, the Lunar Corporation had to join the war in order to fight over the remaining resources left on Earth.
Previously, real-time strategy (RTS) had been in its infancy within the 3D realm, but with the all-terrain and subterranean Earth 2150 from SSI, North America gets to have a taste of what Germany already enjoyed: real-time lighting, true 3D terrain deformation, realistic fog-of-war, and particle effects. In addition, some other goodies include: over 45 CG cut-scenes; a non-linear mission system (with 75 missions in all); real-time weather and day/night influences on strategy and tactics; over eight-player participation with the multiplayer feature, using TCP/IP, IPX or a modem; a unique 3D Map Editor; a simultaneous multiple-camera interface (three window views with zooming and rotating capability); and last but not least, customizable units from various chassis, weapon systems and upgrades.
The Troop Management System and Platoon Base Control allow you to create your own troop formations, change squads and patrol areas, as well as enlist the aid of computer generals in perfecting your campaign. You have a choice of three completely different sides, meaning three separate strategies, interface looks, and music soundtracks -- essentially three games in one!
From scaling mountains and digging out bulwarks to creating tunnel systems and detonating entire regions, Earth 2150 comes at you with story, eye candy, and a new outlook on the future of the strategy genre. Can you save Earth from destruction? Can you save mankind from itself? Which side will you be on, the ED, UCS, or Lunar Corporation? War is ugly -- but unavoidable!

After taking Germany by storm, Earth 2150 is ready to change RTS forever. More than just eye candy, its revolutionary 3D engine takes the genre in a new direction. Meteor showers rain down from above. Climate changes affect how weapons and vehicles function. Fog rolls in early during the morning obstructing view range. Weapons recoil after firing. And full warfare occurs beneath the surface of the earth. Take the completely 3-dimensional landscape into account while planning your troop movements: you'll need to scale towering mountains, dig out protective bulwarks and create entire tunnel systems. Explosions and detonations can change entire regions in an instant. Fascinating day-and-night cycles affect your strategy: watch the shadows change according to the sun's position. Solar cells adapt to the varying intensity of the sun's rays. Blackout your spotlights and launch a surprise nighttime attack! Non-linear mission system with 75 highly challenging missions: you'll need to carefully decide your next action. Should you conquer a strategically vital area? Search for alien artifacts? Or perhaps you should try gaining experience for your units. Ever-changing weather effects: just when you think you've planned everything just right, strong winds force your jets to make emergency landings; a blizzard covers buildings and vegetation in a blanket of snow; and meteorite showers lay waste to large sections of territory. Time to rethink your strategy! Simple to use troop management system and platoon base control: create your own troop formations, change the squads and patrol areas as necessary, and enlist the aid of computer generals in perfecting your campaign. Three totally different sides take part in the conflict. This means 3 strategies, 3 interface looks, 3 music soundtracks. In short - three games in one! Multiplayer mode supports up to 8 players: engage in Internet or LAN matches, or access The Microsoft Gaming Zone for instant action. Easy-to-use map editor: in just a few seconds you can create your own mission map and post it on the Internet for immediate download. Mattel Interactive will also make a steady stream of new maps and other surprises available on the Internet. Handy 3D camera system: Zoom and rotate the camera angle any way you wish, and use the sophisticated tracking system to keep your most critical troops in sight at all times. You can even play with three camera windows simultaneously! Construct your own units from numerous chassis and weapon systems, then go after those upgrades! Wage battle on, above and below the Earth's surface - on land, in the air, and on the water. The arsenal at your disposal includes aircraft, tanks, robots, ships, helicopters and much, much more! Revolutionary 3D engine creates real-time lighting, true 3D terrain deformation, realistic fog-of-war and particle effects This time there is no denying a beta was released to the scene by DVN. You can even see it in the menu when you start: DVN = v188.8.131.52 CLS = v184.108.40.206 File Differences: DVN BETA: LANGUAGE WD 114,686 03-11-00 5:39p language.wd UPDATE~1 WD 3,855,232 04-20-00 12:09p update001.wd CLS FINAL: LANGUAGE WD 115,335 05-19-00 1:05p Language.wd UPDATE~1 WD 3,970,853 05-10-00 9:26a Update001.wd No CDilla files in the DVN rip, nor any manual, just like in the beta. DVN's rip took HOURS to rebuild, and CLS does professional rips and rebuilds with professionally coded tools. To be sure you get the best quality rip, here is the whole thing. We will miss Eurosoft, who is now retiring from the scene completely. He is leaving germany, and gives his highest regards to all CLS/FLT/BLH members. Lastly, happy b-day to T.A.R... or should we say, happy drinking day?! If you get drunk today, give a cheer to him.. oh hell, just get drunk now!
