    I really didn't think i could pull a gold out of this. The score wasn't that great and my expansion was slower than usual.

    On a side note, i would really like to know from Drazek what kind of sacrifices one should make to the RNG gods in order to receive so many leaders so early in the game :crazyeye: Awesome result BTW.

    can one earn a Domination Award if there is a sponsored VC?

    I think not. It would be an incentive to play the wrong VC and win an easy Award.

    Not a problem.

    I planned all along for a 20K. It seems I had many early setbacks and then later the danger of winning a 100K victory made me sell many cultural buildings. I plotted to stay under the 66.6% Domination limit and went over in between turns, I believe by 2 tiles.

    Bad luck.

    The scripts are actually designed to deal with this case correctly. My mistake was not telling the database about the sponsored VC when I set the game up. So your domination victory was not suppressed. I've corrected that error now.
