Hey Guys. I have designed 1/2 dozen community scenarios. Does "Updated to CMO" have any meaning? Are there certain steps or a checklist the designer should go through to reissue scenarios that are several years old? Don't think we should just throw around terms like "remastered" when the scenario is just fine given a minor dusting off to allow it to recognize a certain database. Remastered is sort of misleading unless some form of tangible improvement is made.

We are in the early days of the new CMO. But want to see if a checklist, even if it's tiny, might be a viable way to move forward. The steps required might be so simple that a claim "verified for CMO" could be sufficient. Of course the designer might alter and improve the scenario after gaining experience over years. But is that really "remastering" it without independent playtesting?

I know this may just be semantics. But a common way to communicate scenario updates to CMO will avoid any confusion in expectations from players.

I suppose it's the difference between 'works with' and 'improved for'.

All scenarios should work with CMO. Whether they've been expanded to take advantage of the improvements in CMO is another thing (and like you mentioned, a lot are fine just the way they are).

I think the main point is to update to the latest DB.

Beyond that, the sky is the limit in how much you want to add or adjust.

'works with' and 'improved for' are fine by me. Good suggestions.
