    Can one still launch the spaceship after 2050 and you've won the game through domination? I beat up on the 7 8 other civs and it was down to me and the Egyptians who were on their way out at 2050. As a goof, since I usually play militarily I started to build the spaceship and sometime around 2100, I was ready but when I completed the last component, it seems I couldn't even get into the status screen (F10 or the 's' button). When I hit f10, nothing happened, neither did the 's' key work in the info box. Do I need to build the spaceship before 2050 or should I just disable all the other victory conditions in the new game so that you can only win by launching into space?

    Just curious of what the spaceship animations are...

    If you build the spaceship after 2050 or after you have won then at the point when you would launch the spaceship it just makes the spaceship menu disappear.

    What if in the game options I selected ONLY the 'spacerace' victory and say 2050 comes and goes, do we still play until the spaceship is launched?
    Maybe my next game, I'll just do a spaceship victory and disable all the others..

    The histograph ending at 2050 happens no matter what options you select.

    Sorry, I think I'm still confused.. I know that the score is settled in 2050, but I really don't care about the score. Sounds to me like you're saying that the spaceship has to be built before 2050 in order to launch it cause at 2050, the game will tell you, you've either won or lost and then there's no more victory conditions..

    Anyway, I'll try for a space victory next time...
