This mod is called Cave to Cosmos. And although not too many players reach the Cosmos part is has been worked on quite a lot in the past. While this part of the game is still far away from being finished, Colonization of other planets has been made possible, though. But how can we play or even test it? There are no random maps with space in it. There is Raxo´s map which has no competing civilizations in it. And there is TEHEP´s map which is good in general. I played it until the save game compatibility for new SVN versions stopped yesterday. Shortly before building the first Colony ships. I always want to play with the current SVN and I love to give feedback on my observations. Well, I am quite frustrated as I spent 282 hours with this game and I have to give it up now as I don´t want to continue with the buggy last working SVN version. But back to Vertical Solar map from TEHEP: It is simply too big. I can´t spend again such a huge part of my lifetime with this game, there is real life and spring is coming (finally!). It takes too long to proceed with this map and from modern age on I get more and more freezing and CTDs with it. Having only the earth part of the map already in gigantic doesn´t make sense IMO. This is a pity, as I like the map in general. I also don´t see multimaps coming in any reasonable time frame. So here is my plea: Please create a map script that makes it possible to create random space maps. With earth as it is now and space as it is in TEHEP´s map. And/or please create a few playable space maps that have the earth part in standard size or at most in large. You could take a random map from Toffer´s "World" mapscript and combine it with space. E.g. combine a Pangaea, a Continents and an Archipelago map with space. Unfortunately I am unable to do this by myself. But if you don´t have playable maps the later ages of C2C are 90% wasted.
