Racing Form Adventure Introduction: "After the rigors of discovering and establishing a foothold in the New World, you have decided that it's high time for folks to kick back and start enjoying themselves. Being a gambling man, you think you know just what the people want - plenty of racehorses and a place to race 'em. And you are determined to raise the finest horses ever ridden and build the largest racetrack in history."
Racing Form is designed for all levels of Zeus players -- as usual, those who desire a greater challenge should bump up the difficulty level if they wish. As its name implies, this adventure will eventually require a LARGE hippodrome... so leave room for it!
The narration files for the first two parent episodes, the colony episodes and the victory text are included in the main download, "RacingForm.zip," which also includes the .pak and .txt files. The narration for the last two parent episodes can be found in the Miscellaneous Downloads section, entitled "RacingFormNarration.zip."
Be sure to extract the RacingForm.zip and RacingFormNarration.zip files to a newly-created subdirectory entitled "Racing Form" (notice the space between the words), under your /Adventures directory. To eliminate the "open play" bug, also COPY the Racing Form.pak file to the /Adventures directory.
As always, your comments and suggestions are most welcome! This adventure was real a giggle to create... I had a little fun with New World names and personalities.
A beautiful adventure. Loved the huge map! I built 4 normal districts, 1 elite district, a 200 hippodrome and could place 200 more!
Nice balance with limited resources, which is a good thing - it's dull when you have everything from the very beginning. Many constructions to build.
There was however a bug in the end of the adventure, when for no reason I've been accused of high unemployment, people were starting to leave the city and the relation dropped to "terrible" (which has never happened to me before, not in one adventure). I built an Aphrodite temple, after the 1st prayer she managed to stop people from leaving and after the 2nd prayer she got all citizens back. But the terrible relation didn't get better and soon people started to leave again, because of "past unemployment", which never happened. But, well, it's probably just some bug.
