Publisher Description
The object of this game is to control the worlds with native races and destroy as many enemy capitals as possible. All natives are set to 10,000,000 population and Unity government. The idea here is to get the players to fight over the "good" planets, thus creating more bloodshed and mayhem.

The European Scenario is set to work like this:

There is a modified map created by yours truly in the shape of Europe.
Also used in this scenario is a modified ship list, a modified Torp, Engine and Beam list, and a slightly modified list of Race Names. The Torp, Engine, and Beam list were created by Matt Clouser as well as some of the Ship stats.

The players will need to install these modified data files into their vga planets directory. The players can simply unzip the PlayerDataFiles.Zip file into said directory and they will be good to go.

The host will need to unzip the HostDirectory.zip file. This contains all the files needed to host the game. However, several files will need to be modified based on the specific addons you may be using.

Those files are:
Auxbc.ini
Auxhost1.ini
Auxhost2.ini
Host.bat

Addons I suggest using in this scenario are:
Killing Floor (allows fleet combat)
Fhost (allows ranged combat)
Giveplan (allows easy transfer of territory)
Raceplus
Starbase Plus (for the special transport)
Tachyon (for detecting those nasty cloakers)
Teleport (for easy transer of minerals from starbase to starbase)
ScorBlank (if you want to keep the scores from being seen)

NOTE: THE KILLING FLOOR ADDON IS NECESSARY FOR THIS SCENARIO BECAUSE SOME OF THE SHIPS HAVE BEEN MODIFIED TO HOLD MORE THAN 10 WEAPONS. IF YOU WISH TO RUN THIS SCENARIO WITHOUT KILLING FLOOR, THAT IS FINE, HOWEVER, THE GAME WILL ONLY READ UP TO 10 WEAPONS ON ANY ONE SHIP.

I have NOT INCLUDED registerd versions of any addon files. If you wish to play with registered versions you will have to use your own copies. I highly recommend obtaining registered versions of the following addons:

Killing Floor (player file is registered, host file is shareware)
Fhost
Raceplus
Starbase Plus
Tachyon

The other addons are shareware adn are included in this scenario's host directory.
