Emulation
This game works with: Basilisk II, Mini vMac

Carrier Command is a cross between a vehicle simulation game and a real-time strategy game where players control a robotic aircraft carrier. The carrier is not based on any real-life aircraft carrier but has been designed specifically for the game.

The game is set in the near future, where a team of scientists have developed two robotic aircraft carriers to colonise an archipelago of sixty four islands. Unfortunately, the more advanced carrier falls into the hands of a terrorist organization, and they plan to conquer the archipelago for their own evil ends. It is the player's job to use the less advanced carrier to colonise the islands and destroy the enemy carrier.

This game is available in color for Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Commodore 64, DOS and ZX Spectrum. There is also an unofficial remake called Carrier 2.

As an alternative,
Here is a link to the Atari ST version (color) included the Atari and the game already setup,
just unzip and play (sorry, only for Windows users, it's 12Mb)

[-- Dead MU link --]

you only have to change the path directory of the TOS (ROM) according where you put the folder,
that's all.

even if you want to stick to the Mac version, you may find these useful,
I included the full Manual "Carrier command operations guide"
and the "Carrier command quick start" in PDF's

Ok. Thanks for clearing that out.

There were no color Macs back then, so chances are the answer is no. The Amiga version looks similar, so if you don't mind emulating that machine, you can get what you want but not the way you wanted, just like in real life Wink

Was this ever released in Mac color?
Not that I really play this game but I saw a video in YouTube and seemed very interesting
cuz it's almost in real time and could do a lot of things (strategy) and for such a small file
got me curious, and it is hard to find the Mac color version,
and when I found the manual I was in Awe, its very long and with so many things,
in addition that almost no one says anything about this game here.

has anyone make this one work?

I did. This is a black-and-white System 6 game. The image is in DiskDup+ format so forget about trying to open it with Disk Copy. Just mount it in your emulator as a volume and off you go. It's possible that it may run on early versions of Mac OS 7 because I could play Shufflepuck Café on that OS until I upgraded to 7.5. What I'm sure is that neither Mac OS 8 nor 9 supports black-and-white as color depth so I removed them from the list of compatible systems.

Edit: Changed 'xxx 7' to 'Mac OS 7' - IIGS User

I found and uploaded the Manual where all the codes are scattered in pages and paragraphs
(the manual is the same for ALL Systems)

So hopefully this works.

Has anyone made this work?, because I found a lot more protection codes (as a JPG pics)

Send to me please, so I also could try your codes.
Thanks.

Has anyone made this work?, because I found a lot more protection codes (as a JPG pics) but before I spend the time writing them to Txt I just want to make sure it works

I write the right codes but it doesn't do anything and I have to quit with the Windows Task Manager.

It works on Basilisk, but not all the program protection codes are given, So I have to restart
the Whole thing (System 'cuz it doesn't let you just quit, once it asks for the codes) to find a possible match for the codes given
So who knows when I'm gonna be able to get a Match of the codes given.

too bad, it looks nice

I downloaded this one and must confirm that this one is the Macintosh version.
If you also have installed Apple ][ emulators, the disk image of Carrier Command will be displayed as Apple ][ disk image, but it isn't.

@CaryMG: Then it doesn't belong here ... I'd consider it a candidate for deletion.

This isn't for Macintosh.
It's an APPLE ][ diskimage -- it's running in my APPLE ][ emulator as I type this.
