Speaking of which, right now I am leaning towards doing a single update release that will have both THost and PHost versions of the scenario. The provisional name will be KCivWar 2.1.

Getting back to the point of this thread - I do have a question. How many players out there are interested in playing in a PHost version of KCivWar? The reason I ask is that a THost version could be ready to play in very short order. If there's enough interest in a PHost version, it will take some time to get it ready for play.
I finished the Klingon Civil War (KCivWar) WPVCR.DLL file last night. That means if there's enough interest in a Klingon THost slug-fest, all the pieces are in place.

Gil, why don't you jump in? The first 15 turns will take about 4 - 5 weeks and each turn at the start of the game of course doesn't take so long. Maybe by then RL will be returning to normal?

Although I won't be playing in this game - can't imagine it proceeding without you....

@Klauser
Cool man, Look forward to seeing how it turned out. Might even break my 2 game max and play. It doesnt look like there is going to be a lack of intrest from the poll results and last few posts.

THost: While the scenario files are complete, I still have to pack them up for a final delivery. And Bitmask/][avok have to set up their end. And the inevitable beating the bushes to fill out all 11 race slots. I could see it going at least a several weeks before starting. I know Gil has been wanting to play this game for a while, so I've got no problems standing by until he's ready.

PHost: I hope to work on the PHost version of KCivWar over the next several weeks - a lot of it depends on how well PHost handles the "pre-hosted" game directory I found on backup CD from 2005. I haven't tested it yet so it's hard to predict how well it'll turn out. I really, REALLY do not want to start this monster over from scratch - IIRC, it took weeks to get it right in the scenario editor.

Hopefully that might be the case with me too.

Obviously - I would love to play this scenario!

Might I suggest we create this game at least and get it ready to go either after Christmas or start it now nice and slowly as there are only 4 week until Christmas and I am sure most games will go on hold for at least two weeks at the end of December.

I have one game going to finish in a couple of turns and the other game is already more than half way through and I do not want to get the "shakes" when I do not get my planets "fix" :shock:
