The premise of the mod is a galaxy rebuilding from the aftermath of a devastating galactic war in my interpretation of the Startopia universe. If you've never played Startopia, I highly recommend it but it isn't necessary to make sense of the mod. I just finished this mod. The events file is meant to be used with the map enclosed. I've no doubt most of you will find it to be far too easy, but I'm not a warlike leader and prefer a chance to build up before all hell breaks loose. A lot of the graphics are original, but some are borrowed from the net and, no doubt, some of you. I'd recommend that you check out the interface graphics and especially the civipedia descriptions of the units and such which I am particularly proud of (and which took a great deal of time). Incidentally most of the descriptions are my own and shouldn't be taken as scientifically accurate in all cases. Whether you play on the map I made, I would definitely recommend creating a map by hand as the randomly generated maps neither look right or act right, being filled with overly rich planets and very little of the 10LY terrain, which is like space. On the subject of space, there are three spacey terrains: Deep Space=Ocean, 10LY=ordinary space-but not w/o resources, 1000LY=initially impassible space. The folder is meant to supplant the 'Original' game folder and contains 2 .dll files for diplomatic pictures and such. Please do check it out and tell me what you think.
