    I have so many scenarios on the go and want to finish at least one some time soon.

    I need some focus and can't decide which to concentrate on.

    So I've got it down to 3 (quite a few didn't make the cut so let's not go there).

    I'm trying to find out whether one is likely to be better received hence the poll.

    Links are in my sig if you want more info. I will abide by the unanimous choice (should one arise) and spend 100% of my time on it till completion. (I'll purge the others from my hard drive so I'm in no way tempted to tinker with them).

    I vote Steampunk, but don't wipe the others!

    I'm very tempted to say the "Super Scenario," but "Steampunk" seems much more interesting. :)

    I will backup the 'losing' scenarios on an external drive. I just don't want them on my PC because I can't trust myself not to tinker with them.

    I like your Apocalypse New York one. It sounds very interesting.

    I vote for steampunk. Love the whole jules-vern / high-tech-hybrid.
    But the others do not sound bad either.
    Also, consider how adaptable the various ideas are to Civ3.

    Well, dang, yesterday when I voted there were only 4 votes, and all of them were for the Super Scen. Things are a bit different today! Seems like you are going to keep working on all of them in the same time :lol:

    Can we get a brief outline of each scenario? I already voted for the Super Scenario, but others may not be familiar with the concepts.

    I voted the Super Scenario, although I also wanted to vote for the NY scenario (and now that I look at it, that would have completely evened everything out ;))

    *calms down*

    "Super Scenario, because it sounds like he had wackier ideas."

    *Clicks Super Scenario*

    "But wait, the Steam Punk timeline would be so cool, and who am I kidding, Arthur can make anything wacky. Did I make the wrong choice? "

    Blimey it's close. I'm thinking now that I shouldn't have set the poll's end date so far in advance now.

    You could make a Steam-punkish New York Super Scenario!

    Steampunk!

    I've been collecting images & starting to make some "steampunkish" Tech Icons. I can probably come-up with a tech tree's worth, although they may not all match the exact techs you're looking for.

    Steam Punk. But I strongly suggest :) you find a cooler name. Suggestion: The Age of Steam.

    I voted for the Super Scenario, since it's the one I'm most familiar with. However, on second thought, I'd like to vote for a fourth option: do the one you want to make most. I'm sure with your skill, that any of the three will be great. If you end up making something that was not your top choice, it will feel too much like a chore. Anyways, good luck, as always!

    thanks for saying so, it just makes me more determined to actually finish one of these.

    I understand ;)

    Never played that one so I can't comment. Maybe you can give me the lowdown on it later and I can incorporate some of its ideas.

    Let's hope it doesn't come to that. Looks like Steampunk is storming ahead anyway.

    That'd be great Blue Monkey. If it does win I'll be reviewing all the techs (which were never really finalised for that scenario anyway).

    But steampunk is the label for the genre whereas Age of Steam is too generic. I'll think of something funky though.

    I couldn't make up my mind and would be happy working on any of them. Even if the Super one doesn't win I'll finish it at some point because all your work on those great Super Hero/Villain units can't be left to go to waste.
