Hall of Fame rank

Post by Korgeta » Tue May 29, 2012 1:15 pm

Hi,

The ultimate challenge of the game is to be 'king of the moutain' the one with the highest points in the hallf of Fame. I never really understood how it worked, when playing on the unmod botf I played federation twice, 1 with domination and one with conquest ending. they were only a turn apart and the conquest that had a turn more was below the domination ending. It was a old file and no longer have it with me but case in point the score system is a poorly understood one as the game instructions dosen't give an idea what makes up a good score.

So what determines a score rank (or a best one?) is there a max score system the game can allow.

Also do the following:

Turns
Systems
Conquest/membership
research
Intel
Fleet strength

Play a part in the score system. What should a player be looking at to achieve in the game to get the best score in the hall of fame?

Still partially unexplored. Some info on intel screen scores can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2291

IIRC starting at tech 1, impossible, large map, acquiring / developing as many systems as possible maximizes the end-score. Abusing the upgrade & scrap exploit, the minor evolution bias via bribing and continuing the game even after the AI surrender message, it's a very simple (and boring) task.
On the verge of a nervous breakdown? Try the relaxing tribble sounds.

Or you could just cheat and edit the score file. :)

On top of whats already been said I always believed credits per turn (at the end of the game) played a factor in your hall of fame score..
