From: The Briar Patch Nebula
First of all the research rate is not set to 100 in the scenario, it's set at 205 at scenario start.
Secondly, as Osito stated in an earlier post in this thread, once a scenario map is created, saved
and locked with a password, IT'S DONE! No edits, you must make a new map and scenario because
it basically becomes a savegame. There are over 36 different race event interactions that delicately
interweave with the game. That is why the scenario is locked. If it wasn't, players would 'tweak'
items here and there and then when the game crashed or locked, this thread would be flooded with issues.
Mostly caused by their own meddling.
The best thing to do to come close to what you wish is to start a custom game, load the UFP galaxy
map from within the setup screen, THEN go set your research, difficulty and other parameters to your
liking. You will not get the correct homeworld race placements, independent race worlds, etcetera, but
you can start a game, enter the editor, edit anything you wish, then save the map as your own sort of
scenario. But you will not get the Race events, interactions and other items our UFP scenario gives.
Remember also that we created this mod to be playable in every possible DW gameplay form except for
Elliot's "The Ancient Galaxy" format, which is a mod within itself. We used Spock's philosophy where
"the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few...or the one!"
Sorry you are having problems Coriolanos. From looking at the error report you supplied in an earlier
post, I'm assuming that your problem is arising from some sort of translation problem with one of the
mod files from English to German. It's only my speculation, but I saw a similar problem back when I was
beta-testing the Shadows Release Candidate. Ich spreche ein bisschen deutsch. But that was back in high
school about a thousand and one years ago. Again, it's an assumption, but I'm willing to bet there lies
the issue. Please translate the first line of your error report for me and PM me with it and I'll try
to assist further.
LOL...Master Map Maker...you posted your response just as I was about to post this reply!

Shields are useless in "The Briar Patch"...
