    "It is a time of civility, and a time of exploration. It is the age of enlightenment, and the age of ignorance. A new era in the world is dawning, an era that will see technological accomplishments that exceed our wildest dreams."

    This Civ2 MPGE scenario (currently in development, now at Beta v0.4) incorporates early science fiction such as those of Jules Verne, HG Wells, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H. Rider Haggard, and Sax Rohmer as well as inspiration from early cinema and the historical mysteries applied to the setting of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is heavily inspired by the original World of Jules Verne scenario as well as from Sarsstock's post on the Apolyton forums back in February of 2005. Still found HERE. I borrowed ideas directly from this forum thread.

    The game is designed to play out like a Victorian adventure novel where scientific advances and exploration are prioritized. The player is reward for exploration and certain event texts will give hints where to venture. The ultimate goal is to send a team of explorers to the moon. This is done through a "Moon Canon," and instead of a space shuttle, the nation must build a shell to be shot out of the cannon.

    I am calling on anyone interested in play-testing this "Open Beta" of sorts. I would appreciate any feedback and advice. I am a novice Civ2 scenario creator. If willing, please post responses in this thread. Also please look at the readme before playing. There are known issues in the game. Thank you for your interest.

    Welcome to the fabulous world of STEAM!

    Link doesn't work, Hemrawc.

    You could just use the forum upload system?

    Sounds very promising - I'm happy to take a look. The Jules Verne scenario was always my favorite with the base game so I'm looking forward to seeing what you came up with. As Curt suggested, you could upload it in the forum or even to civfanatics in general.

    Thank you to all who have taken a look at the scenario. I now have a new version with a few improvements. Please see the attached .zip and the readme for more details. I tried to attached the new scenario file to the original post but I was getting an error message saying my content was "spam-like or contains inappropriate elements."

    One of the biggest bugs that still remains is that the City.txt is not working properly. So newly built cities will have ill-fitting names. Any suggestions on fixing this or any feedback in general is welcome.
