I agree on voting when the game is a runaway, but how to determine a winner when a game ends on a certain turn and there are several players (not allied) close to being even? The ITAScore to me is more of a fair scoring system.

On a side note, why have the graph to show the score history? There are only two scores that count for anything, the score at the present turn and the end of game score. In place of the graph, how about showing # of warships, freighters, planets, starbases for each race.
I remember seeing a host addon long ago that would offer (via in game messages and voting) to end the game every 25 turns starting at turn 75.

I haven't been able to find a copy of it though. Anyone else seen or heard of this addon?

Agreed on all counts.

That was NAVGAP and it worked well. I tried to contact Neil a while ago to ask if he really was down and done but he never got back to me and the website has disappeared (although the mirror site was still around last time I checked). You may have more luck getting a response from him than I did. I really don't know what happened but the site came to a full stop just after my last game ended.

I like the graph showing the history.
It's interesting to see how things develop.

I agree, various scoring methods are flawed and can be abused.

I prefer games with clear cut goals like:
Invasion, Homeworld & Flagship.
Understanding is a three-edged sword.
Your side,
their side,
and the truth.

Is that an addon that you can get, or specific to his site?

I'm afraid I don't know, and I don't have a "vote to end" email around anymore that might give us a clue either. Best bet would be to try to contact Neil, or maybe Steve Simms. I think it was all programmed by them but I really don't know that for sure.
