What this achievement requires you to do is to gain control over 5 islands without loading a checkpoint or gamesave.

Start up a Strategy Game, with the following settings: Lots of starting resources; Weak Enemy; High Island Production; and it doesn't matter what you have the number of islands set to, there's always a lot. You'll need a lot of time to do this achievement because you have to capture 5 islands without backing out, so set aside up to 3 hours to get this done. I'll relate to you the way I effectively captured my 5 islands.

Here is a complete list of the things you'll need on your Carrier: Manta x3; Walrus x1; Manta Lasers x2 (x3 optional); any Walrus Weapon (Optional); Walrus Armor MkI (optional); Manta Rockets or Missles x2 (x3 optional); Manta Shields, or Flares x2; Manta Hook x1; Manta Armor MkI or MkII x3; Walrus Hacking Capsule x5;

1: Look for islands with no advanced defenses (firewalls, shields, etc.)
2: Setup up a force of 1 Walrus with Hacking Capsule and a weapon if you want, and then 3 Mantas, at least 1 having a Hook attachment to transport the Walrus. The other 2 Mantas will be Wingmen providing fire support.
3: Send in one of your Mantas and scout the island to identify the location of enemy emplacements and the location of the Command Center.
4: Clear the route from your Carrier to the Command Center using 1 or more Mantas until the flight path for your transport Manta is clear all the way to the Command Center.
5: Make sure everything is stocked up on ammo and then deploy your 3 Mantas and the Walrus. Move the Walrus a slight distance away from the Carrier so there is vertical clearance, and then use your transport Manta to hover over the Walrus at low altitude and press A to attach it.
6: Assign your other 2 Mantas as Assist Units to your transport Manta, and then move it (either manually or with an order) to the Command Center.
7: Land the transport Manta at the Command Center and press A to release the Walrus. Then just hack the Command Center as you normally would, and simply re-attach it to the Manta when you're done. Fly everyone back, dock all, and then move to the next island.

Simply repeat Steps 3-7 another 4 times at different islands and the achievement is yours!

NOTES: Green, darkened islands have a destroyed Command Center. If you have any Construction Capsules (Resource, Defense, or Production) for your Walrus, feel free to just transport it with a Construction Capsule rather than the Hacking Capsule to the destroyed Command Center and rebuild it. It takes a long time, but you can do plenty of other things in the game while it is rebuilt, seeing as you can leave the island once you've started the rebuilding process.

I hope I helped, please comment and rate.
