  • Modified v. Vanilla

    I. Will you use a mod?
    II. Which mod will you use if point I. is positive? (in other words see if majority goes with SMAniaC)
    [the following is mostly redundant if a mod is chosen]
    III. Will the AI be boosted?
    IV. Changes to alphax.txt
    V. Will the CMN assist the AI and how?
    For the purposes of this poll, "modified" means a substantial variant of SMAC/X (Aldebaran, SMAniaC, TurboSMAC, Beta Lyrae, etc.). "Vanilla" includes SMAC/X, where the alpha.txt or alphax.txt has been modified by the CMN to boost the AI.

    It seems simpler to break down points a), b) and c) into separate polls. And defer polling on points d), f) and g) until the first three are resolved.

    Please note that there has been a lot of discussion in the thread about the next DG

    http://www.apolyton.net/forums/show...threadid=146607

    In that thread, I've been assuming that there is a sufficient group of players interested in SP, SMAX, SMAniaC. Otherwise, I've wasted a lot of time and thought.

      Well, SMAniaC has boosted faction files. You could vote 2 or more of the above.

              Tried to vote but got this message:

              My vote would be Vanilla, AI Boosted, AI Assisted by CMN.


              Let's not make it too complicated.


              Having the AI assisted by the CMN would be the thing that would make the game most challenging.

                      It seems there's an option with one more vote.

                            Shouldn't that be "modo44phobia"?
