I'd go with either scenario 1 or 2 for your mirror campaign. OOB, tweaks, quirks and so forth pretty well established. Not a big fan of the mods, as there are often hidden agendas associated with them to be later discovered to your chagrin.
There are no agendas in DaBabes, hidden or otherwise. DaBabes scenarios were developed by the original AE development team as a means of incorporating things that there was insufficient time to include in the initial release and as a test bed for modifications that have been implemented in the executable Beta updates published by Michaelm.
BabesLite scenarios 26 and 27 ARE stock scenarios 1 and 8, but have data elements that march hand-in-glove with the executable betas. The last official data update was to BabesLite as it existed at that time. AndyMac’s latest scenario and AI updates are BabesLite based. The only reason they are not contemporary, official, stock scenarios is that Matrix hasn’t decided to spend the time and money to put another official comprehensive patch together, but they are in the official development queue if this should ever take place.
Stacking limits were originally developed by Andrew Brown, the map and map-data developer of the AE design team. They were tweaked and implemented by the Babes team after much consultation with Andrew and Michaelm. Stacking limits pwhexe, pwzlink and pwzone are available for ALL stock-map scenarios, as well as extended-map scenarios.
Obviously, Matrix can’t offer a stock-map, an extended map, nominal stacking data files, and stacking limit data files, as an official patch. But these were developed by the AE developers, without any hidden agendas, so if they float your boat, just pick which one you want to use.
Nous n'avons pas peur! Vive la liberté! Moi aussi je suis Charlie!
