    Thanx! I've always had a very vivid imagination, as well as a job that continually forces me to think "outside the box": a great background for coming up with all sorts of new twists on this game!

    This is a good idea! Maybe a remnant of the Hive or Spartans have set up camp there, and the PKs need to root them out.

    I think my approach is relatively credible as well (i.e. that a Prog spaceship is discovered, and it is determined that the FTL Drive can be replicated, and that the start charts are intact). This can also lead to many more interesting "encounters" simply because the galaxy is so huge, which then allows individuals creativity to populate it with who knows what!?!

    Regulars may know what Eurytion is. For anyone who doesn't know, raise your hand. Ok, this name comes from the planets.txt in the SMACX folder. Just look it up there. It has stats on Planet, Pholus, Nessus, and Eurytion.
    Its also where gwillybj hangs out. He's a cantankarous old codger with an itchy trigger finger, so you might want to send a request for docking priveledges before you decide to go visit him......

    Maybe Chiron might be the planet of choice. I dunno. Check it out.

    How does the following sound?

    ACDG4 has begun!

    The year is 2299. Planet has recently been unified under the Peace Keeper banner, and now the Peace Keepers have turned their ambitions to the fledgeling interstellar colonies in the other solar systems that Man has colonized.

    This ACDG is intended to be a series of games (SP, and possibly some MP), with each game occuring on a different "planet" in a different solar system. Some games (like the current one "Sword of the Righteous") will be SMAC, while others will be SMAX. Also, to help boost the idea that the games are occuring on different planets, the movement points of various units will be modified in the alpha(x).txt file to simulate gravity being heavier or lighter.

    As time progresses and the sphere of Peace Keeper influence grows (by the conquest of nearby solar systems), it is envisioned that new species, civilizations, and empires will be encountered by the Peace Keeper's Interstellar Forces as they continue to expand their empire.

    So join our intrepid band of Peace Keepers (or just stop by and see what theiur up to!) as they send mission after mission out amongst the stars, with the intent of unifying all of Humanity under the Peace Keeper banner!

    News item

    News item for Iluminatus:

    15-10-2006: In the AC-Democracy Game subforum, ACDG4 Game One ("The Sword of the Righteous") begins. ACDG4 is a SMAC single player Peacekeeper scenario designed by Darsnan. The time is MY2299 and the planet, "Sanctuary," is close to Alpha Centauri. Blessed with technological superiority and a Hive splinter ally, the democracy game players face a considerably enhanced AI coalition of splinter factions led by a future incarnation of Joan of Arc. For more information, go to http://apolyton.net/forums/showthrea...0#post4625988.

    It would certainly add to the game - It would make the AI a lot more intelligent.

    Although I would be little afraid of discussing strategy in the open forum if I knew you were reading it, and using it to help the AI.

    OK, game is posted here . Anything you want me to add to this please let me know.

    I would again recommend that all the players download the turn, take some time and review the situation, then discuss how best to proceed. From playtesting much should happen within the first 10 - 20 turns, so you may wan to take some time in between turns.


    Good Luck!

    Hadn't really thought about doing that, but I am not opposed to doing so if you think it would add to the game.

    I am about 1/3 of the way done with the intro document setting the premise for the game, so I should finish sometime tomorrow. I will then publish and post the game, and you all can take it from there.

    btw here is a pic of your chief adversary, Sister Joan d'Arc of the Believers. You will note she is wearing a suit of Synthmetal combat armor, as well as a frock of Believer orange. Joan earned the name "The Sword of the Righteous" for her exploits in leading her people back from the brink of defeat, and she now believes it is Gods Will that she rid her homeworld of the PK invaders.

    mart, can you do a screen capture?

    I'm not sure I can do it with my iMac.

    If you can, I propose you publish the screen and we can discuss it.

    Please discuss amongst yourselves how you'd like to play the first 5 turns. I will warn you that there will be much action and decision-making for the first ten or so turns, and that your decisions here will effect significantly how the game progresses from there. FYI so you can discuss how to proceed accordingly.

    OK, so how about we all download the game, take a look at it and decide what to do.

    Vyeh, it is the same situation, the game cannot be saved.
    In this case, I would recommend that each time you play a turn, you save it just right before pressing the end turn. Then, when you send it to a player having a pc machine with windows, that player presses "end turn" and has the autosave.

    Regarding the way we play. Maybe let us have a turnplayer for a few turns, 3-5, in the first 10-15 turns. Each turn would be though discussed on this forum. what do you think?

    My mistake. That was a SMAX file. Correct file is below.

    Interesting, but this save file is indicated as multiplayer and I cannot load it as singleplayer.

    I duplicated autosave1 and renamed it. Let me know if this is better.

    Had to zip it. The sav file was too large for 'poly.

    Edit: wrong file. Removed it. See second post following.
