ok, i recently registered my alias and all that jazz and have submitted two games. for both i had set the game on 'tough'. but the first one i submitted was reported as an 'anamolous' setting, and the second 'masochistic'! i've added a bunch of mods from the website, as well as adding a few techs and trade goods of my own. However, i did notice something odd about my game. towards the end, the other races (after doing some espionage on their stats) i found had weapons and defense bonuses of 300+ %! not to mention any other bonuses they probably had as well. i guess this probably means im gonna have to reinstall glaciv, but i was wondering if this had happened to anyone else and/or if someone knew wat the hell happened. thx. peace out
If the game is too different or unbalanced in Stardocks opinion, you'll get a 0 and an "Anamolous" for the difficulty. For instance, if you create a politcal party that gives bonuses that are too powerful you'll trigger a 0 for the score, even if GalCiv itself doesn't seem to have a problem.
Perhaps one or more of your mods are unbalanced? I've found that it is easier just not bothering with any mods. Parties or mods that give bonuses above 50% or give lots of bonuses (like say, 6 bonuses) would probably be considered unbalanced.
