Welcome to Storm Over Europe (SOE) and thank you for your interest in this non-commercial scenario. Please don´t forget, that this is a public betatest. Therefore not all of the many new concepts are working perfectly and the civilopedia attached to that mod is far from ready. SOE underwent several massive rebuilts during the creating phase due to the gigantic dimensions of this project, that let us reach many limits of modding in Civ 3 in times when these limits were not known yet.
The last big changes, including a complete rebuilt of the map and a change from weekly turns to monthly turns were done less than one year ago - but this version was not tested very intensively. So please be prepared, that SOE, in spite of the very long time of creating this scenario, is in an early phase of beta and here a lot of things still can happen, due to the lack of intensive prebetatesting of the last version of SOE.
Your experiences and reports are needed for fixing bugs and errors and to find the best conditions for the overall-gameplay.
