Author: Paolo Fiore

1. INTRODUCTION

ITAScore is a completely customizable scoring program. You can define all kind of formulas on any VGAPlanets' parameter. This allows you to tailor your scoring system to any scenario you are going to use in a game.

ITAScore creates an itascore.txt file and sends a message containing the score and the settings to all the players each turn.

ITAScore cna create an ascore.dat file fully compatible with Autotroll and Ascoregif, for online visualization.

2. CONFIGURABLE OPTIONS FOR ITASCORE

    or configure group scores.
  • MineFields: enable/disable minefield score. This value is based on the "mine units".
  • Planet Resources: enable/disable mines and factories score. It is based on the sum of the mines
    and factories.
  • Planet defences: enable/disable the planetary defenses' score. It is based on the total number
    of planetary defense posts.
