That was mostly my space, but the Gorn started to invade my left flank at the same time that you did which is why you say the mix of planets. Here is my space at turn 53 http://vgap.innernet.co.za/images/AQ8_FerengiTurn53.png And at turn 99 http://vgap.innernet.co.za/images/AQ8_FerengiTurn99.png
I was also stuck in the middle of the map with Casebolt, so we decided early on to ally and fortify. Neither had the biggest ships so we had to fortify with what we could get. I had huge shortage of good planets with natives to tax and had to build a lot of casino ships to try and generate some cash...
It would be nice to know if it runs.
If it does not run I have a lot of work to do so that it does run on Windows 10...
If you have Win 10 and want to test it for us, you can get the download at http://vgap.innernet.co.za/winplan
BList stand for BitMask's List.
It is the TList1.1, but using the UnNatural Engines. If you search the C-M forums for the game that use BList and you will find what you are looking for. You can also search for UnNatural Engines if you want a more direct link to the engine details.
