    Conclusion for the rest of the SL-Team:

    We're gonna split this Project into an Adventure Variant of Star Control 2 for ToT and a more action oriented and shorter MGE Variant. New Threat will be started for the MGE Variant at CFC. There will also be a Thread at the german Civ-Forum for the MGE Variant.

    He, he, it took years, that's true. But it was always nagging somewhere in my backmind and so I started a new attempt to finish this scenario two weeks ago. I will post the StarControl MGE scenario next week - not sure if there are still players out there interested in this one. But I'll have peace of mind at last.

    I know the feeling. Still, I've looked forward to this one for quite a while:)

    Patience, gentlemen. It will take another one or two weeks. But it's on its way, I promise.

    It's still three months till December, so enough time to make up for a good Christmas present.

    Haven't received any E-Mail from you yet since last week.

    F**K! I messed up the city.txt - file. Whenever the barbarians negotiate (they demand money and spare your city), the game used to crash. That's because I deleted the original 17 Barbarian tribe names and replaced them by only a single one.

    I'm looking forward to having some free time to give try this one out. I've been looking forward to it for a long while after all. It is unfortunate that I am so severely time limited at the moment.

    It's true enough though, that our numbers have grown thin the last few years. But accolades and downloads were never a particularly important motivation for me. Sometimes, I simply can't take my mind off of something, (in my case about the bronze age Eastern Mediterranean) and without some kind of creative catharsis I fear I will eventually go mad...

    Or perhaps only madder relative to before. My wife occasionally taunts me that the last time she played civilization II was when she was in middle school. While this is technically true, I have yet to find something else that scratches this particular itch in my life:)

    Actually, I did download this myself. I'm just in the process of getting MGE to work on Windows 8, so bear with me on this one.
