Im at a loss at the moment KP. I will try more on monday when i have more free time, though i am wondering about a certain way to do it but it would require me to go pass April 8th. I assume you are still finishing these games on April 8th?
Sometimes yes, and sometimes no.
Here are some hints on differences from what I was doing previously:
1. Galactic position is more important.
2. Number of game turns is slightly less important.
3. Minor civs are somewhat less important. Sentient species taste better...
