May I ask what's the status of the '42 BigBabes style scenario?
With Nikademus and his '42 "stock" scenario MIA, this is my hope for the future with the lovely game...

I'm afraid it's also MIA. Sam did a fabulous job with the database, everything anyone could wish, but the game requires a bit more than that. Turns out the code for the econ model can't handle a 6 month shift; it gets verlumpt, verblundgered and verkackt. It eats itself because of the specific way that time is calculated in many (most?) of the algorithms.

And then there's the AI. There's literally hundreds of scripts and it would take stepping through each and every one and lining up the changes with every other script that references the one changed. Without that, the AI moves things around based on 1941 legacy scripts. Not good juju. In fact, it made poor Sam comatose.

Given all this, Sam's 42 scenario was not something we could release as a "Babes" scenario. All of our GC stuff MUST work within the constraints of the engine and be, at least, acceptable to the AI so that anybody and everybody can use it. I hope you understand.


i'm sad, i was hoping on this scenario

but what you said involves impossibility of making any grand campaign scenarios starting after 7 december.
algorithms are into exe, not in scenario, so algorithms are the same for every scenario
therefore, how have witp programmers done about scenario 1946 downfall? it is starting after pearl harbor attack and has production on

Because we did major revisions to the database.

Could have done a simple one, but people are already doing that. Not good to step on someone else's toes. AndyMac's beta update scenarios have 98% of BabesLite, so either the beta updates or BabesLite are a good starting point for a 1942 start scem. Can only hope the '42 people are using the latest and greatest data files and AI scripts as a basis.

Babes will continue to maintain BabesLite, but all the new work is for the BigBabes paradigm. And that's what takes it out of the realm of GC AI play.

Very sorry. JWE
