This is very embarrassing, because of course you have a point.  Please give us some time to talk tomorrow when sisko is fuctional about how to make this right for everyone.  I really don't want anyone to end up unhappy over this.  We'll think of something, okay?

Seems like I failed on posting a correct save. Not that it matters Earthmichael was clearly faster than me.

If you refuse to judge by the WRITTEN specification, then it is only fair to give notice of the new requirements, and extend the deadline to meet the new requirements.  That is only fair.
Please give us some time to talk tomorrow when sisko is fuctional about how to make this right for everyone.  I really don't want anyone to end up unhappy over this.  We'll think of something, okay?

the deadline is extended till March 10, 2012 because the rules regarding the end of the scenario were not clear enough.
i hope this is an acceptable compromise for everyone.
Anyone else feels like it's time to fix the faction graphics bug?

Ok, I already wrote a PM (rather cryptic) about it, but i will write post here too:

I'm standing with Earthmichael with this - notice that both of my saves were also from the moment when i seized the city - and you had to click end turn. I also thought that i was sending the moment i won the scenario. So propose to include the last Earthmicheal submit, and make future victory conditions of the scenarios more foolproof.

PS (Speaking about foolproof, I think that in 'Warcrimes II' there is no condition about: harder difficulty winnings, always beating easier difficulty winnings.)

If nothing else this scenario has helped iron out a few of the vague areas of some of the rules. Good work everybody, and thanks for being civil about it all too. :D

I just checked and you are right!  The victory objectives definitely need to be updated to include difficulty level as the first critera!


Extending the deadline to March 10 is a great solution.  Thanks!

Thanks for creating the scenario and running the contest!  I hope these contests result in a resurgance of interest in SMAC(X), still the best civ games ever created!

Can you tell us where the submissions stand right now, with respect to the new guidelines?

Is my resubmission with the winning dialog OK?
