This achievement is rather annoying and could be hard, simply because you don't want to make any simple mistakes on your way to the required island captures. I recommend combining it with 6 other achievements to be most efficient and not have to play too many strategy games.

This achievement only counts for strategy mode! You have to capture 5 enemy islands without loading a save file. Saving your game is ok, but do NOT load a save file. If you want this one quickly, just load up a strategy game with easy settings, and capture 5 islands without loading a saved game!

Try to make sure you DO NOT meet the enemy carrier as that is the most likely thing that will mess up your try for this achievement. It's really hard to fail island captures otherwise, but I highly recommend Manta shields to make it really safe.

Otherwise, just combine 7 achievements like I've detailed below to be most efficient. wink


Load up a strategy game with these settings:
Captured Islands Count: ~75%
Enemy Strength: Weak
Startup Resources: High
Islands Output Rate: High
Victory Conditions:
Destroy Enemy Carrier: Required

Make sure when the game starts that the enemy has at least 5 islands!
Do NOT load a saved game until you have captured the first 5 enemy(red) islands! (you can save your game)
Now, you can simply head straight for the enemy's stockpile, although I recommend you build a few manta's, fuel cells, and your favorite Manta gear. My favorite manta gear was shields(not needed on weak), ammo box, gatling/laser, rockets/missiles, and for this difficulty if you're using shields, NO armor. If you are using ammo box, then use at least MK1 armor.

Once you have your gear built, head to the enemy stockpile island which you should be able to find easily by highlighting each enemy island from the map view, pressing cn_RT, and checking the island details.

Taking over the island will be really easy, but DO NOT destroy the command center, and DO NOT reload a save point! Just use your Manta's to decimate the few defenses, then send in a Walrus, or even use a Manta with hook to carry the Walrus in.
Capture the island and you will get:http://www.trueachievements.com/a169186/5-finger-discou....htm and http://www.trueachievements.com/a169190/hardcore-mki-ac....htm for capturing your first island without having to load a save file.
Now use the same game, capture 4 more enemy islands WITHOUT loading a save file, and you will have gotten your 3 Hardcore Island Capture achievements! http://www.trueachievements.com/a169191/hardcore-mkii-a....htm http://www.trueachievements.com/a169192/hardcore-mkiii-....htm
Now you can relax about the saves. Build 2-3 torpedoes, and hunt down the enemy carrier who is probably busy attacking your islands. When you find him, try to catch the carrier when it is parked looking at one of your islands. If you can catch it parked, then you can sneak up with a Manta and get a 'cheap shot' on it. Otherwise, having to chase the carrier gets annoying fast as it seems to be able to sail faster no matter what! I personally loaded up two Manta's with torpedoes, got close to the enemy carrier without being detected while it was parked, then launched both torpedoes about the same time by switching Manta's rapidly. Both torpedoes hit before the carrier could react and the carrier joined the fishies!
Select continue when the game asks, and now on to the other achievements!
Start by capturing all the islands in the dead zone, and while you're capturing them all, start switching all of your islands to production/research. The best combination once all islands are captured will be about 15 production, and all the other islands on research(mining). Once you've captured the last island, which for me was a neutral island, you will get: http://www.trueachievements.com/a169189/conqueror-of-th....htm Follow this up by queuing up 100(You cannot stockpile more than 100 of any item) Torpedoes or any other really expensive items, put your carrier into infinite time-warp by running out of fuel, and keep building expensive things until: http://www.trueachievements.com/a169187/millionaire-ach....htm And, finally, your last achievement is really simple--queue up as many of the cheapest items as you can, starting with Fuel Cells(50), and build them until you get: http://www.trueachievements.com/a169188/hammers-and-nai....htm
Congratulations, you've now gotten 7 of the strategy mode achievements in one go!
