I fired up another one.  One map was discarded because I began without a colony pod.

We are no longer the Science Champions.  Just the Science Paragons.  The pretty-good-guys, if you will.

OMG, I just realized I behaved in a ridiculous way. I didn't jot down the password I used, and it was some off-hand word. I have a few guesses, but don't kill me if I call for a reload again. ::) I hope it comes back to me.

what's the trick to naming the save file so that the game knows how to update the leader name or the date?

Keep the date at the end and it will automatically change it. But the rest remains as it is, there's no way to change the name. Basically, it's [the name of the file][the date].

*sigh* OK, guys, I need another reload, sorry for that. For the love of god, I can't recall my password, I've been trying for 40 minutes now. What happened was, I was in a hurry to push my turn yesterday and changed the idea for the password at the last second. And then I didn't write it down, because the last time I was setting up my own password was like 10 years ago... Usually they come from the CMNs. I know, it's embarassing.  :-[

I'd set up the game myself but it's best if Morgan comes first, ammirite? So Horseshoe_Hermit, please start it over. I promise no more shenanigans. :P And as high a turnover as I can get. At least we're still on turn 1.

Kirov, it may be ok if you just reload the save you received and in which you set the password, so Morgan and Svensgaard would not need to replay the first turn.
We would get a warning from your reload, but that's ok, I think.
As for me, there was nothing crucial in my turn, no unity pods, etc.

That is an idea, thanks!

There's gonna be some reload messages (I tried to recreate my thoughts by opening the first turn, obviously to no avail).

So we're reloading only the last turn, that's a relief.

SMACX works in interesting way, so when I was loading the new turn, I got this two messages:
- you have been already playing this ...
- Peacekeeper player may have made 2 reloads ...


So I am not sure what the next message/s will be.


2101 to Morganites.

There's a reloads advisory?  Far-out.  Actually, .... that's mindboggling how that can work.

Bet you must have been jolted when it said that I reloaded the first turn from the other game 40 times.  Funny story.

Because I played out the turn before realizing I could have destroyed the cloudbase academy, I reloaded to play the turn.  But it turned out that I had triggered a resource pod on turn 1 - and I happened to trigger a map resource pod.  I thought it would be unfair of me to proceed in that game and get anything other than the information I already knew out of that pod.  Had it been any other kind of pod, that thinking would be different, AND, because a map pod would be possible, it would be bad if I triggered a map pod but didn't keep it, so I couldn't have done the same thing.

It was the one situation that demanded I give up 90 minutes of my night to reproducing the random event.  But boy, map pods are really rare!

Hence I'm especially salty that you dumped that game, Kirov. >:(
