(I just tried a longer post on this subject but it seems to have got lost - apologies if it now appears and this is a du[plicate)
The latest iteration with scores in the millions seems very random to me and I was wondering if people have some idea how it works.
In my last two games I played on gigantic maps first as the evil Krynn.
With moves taking nearly an hour each I bailed out after nearly 30 hours on turn 162 with the Ascension Gate having 357 colonies ,2871 population, 175 citizens, 149 techs and got a score of 2.1 million
With the same game settings I thne played as the ineffable Altarians and took the gate after <10 hours on move 124:
92, colonies, 580 pop, 48 citizens, 143 techs - socre 1.8 million.
Any ideas please?
