Casual 2020
A challenge scenario.
SMAX Game


FACTION: Peacekeepers (Forced to play it)

Based on MGM mod.
Expect longer game and several times more turns, than usually.

SCENARIO START
- Unzip the folder "Casual2020" to scenario folder of SMAX.
- Start the scenario from game menu.
- When playing the game/reloading, etc., do not move/remove the "Casual2020" folder, you will loose mod modifications otherwise.

Victory Conditions
Only 2 victory conditions are selected:
* Transcendence
* Economic

Map not visible
Blind research
flexible starting locations

REMARKS
There is no real competition, just what you make for yourself. It is casual game after all.
Try the following for your own enjoyment:
1. Survive till some AI faction wins.
2. Win by any of the two selected victory conditions.
3. If there are AAR reports on this game, try to win sooner than the best reported game.

IT is CASUAL game, so take your time. Remember, that this game will last longer. The MGM mod has only few changes in the rules, you may not notice them in some cases. From hints for early game remmber:
- Doctor specialists give also Lab points. They can speed up your research in first turns.

Mart:
First century on Chiron
(click to show/hide)14 bases, population 38.
Having 2 SPs: Merchant Guild + Weather Paradigm
4 SPs are in AI possesion:
Yang: Command Nexus
Morgan: Human Genome Project
Zakharov: The Virtual World
Deirdre: Empath guild


Believe it or not, but exactly in MY 2200, Deirdre completed Empath guild. She right away summoned Planetary governor Election, but I won!
So Lal is Planetary Governor, and I have infiltration in all factions.
Morgan was in contact for long time already, but I had no other commlinks.
Traded several techs, ready to get Industrial Automation, but blind research switched it to red/conquest one.


Anyway, Lal kinda leads, but Morgan is making a lot of EC.
Game just got a lot more interesting, but there is more micromanagement from this turn.
