This is still fairly ugly... Some improvements are still pending.
- Only a modified HST file is generated; you need to load this in stars and generate one turn before you actually have M files to play with.
- ... as a result, one year of research will be added on to the research you specify. This is only likely to be relevant at very low tech levels, though..
... but that's not the case; it appears that I'm missing something and/or have found a great new way to cheat, since somehow, from the given HST file and 3000-4000 resources, the various races are doing MANY levels of high-level reseearch in one turn. This is obviously massively screwy, to be investigated ASAP. (fixed 17.6.2008 - but the above point still remains, for now)
Your browser will almost certainly prompty you to save "battlesim_generator_web.py" when you press "generate"... this is really the HST file in disguise. I'll fix up the naming when I read up on HTTP headers again. (fixed 17.6.2008 - or it should be. If this still occurs for you, please send me a PM on the Autohost forums (assuming you got this link from there) with browser version and OS info)
Relevant additional files:
- The XY file to go with the game files.
- The text of the docs distributed with the original Battlesim by "OnlyAnEgg". I will update this document to reflect my changes Really Soon Now.
Updates Really Soon
