Generally I see the opposite, two computers going for crystite and the third going for smithore to keep the mule population going.

Hopefully I'll get another chance to play soon, and perhaps run a more traditional strategy that doesn't put me so far behind to begin with.

Oh well... sometimes the game doesn't play the way you expected it. Tonight was a such game. I decided to try again and go for smithore, but was too greedy and wanted the price to increase faster than it did. It meant I was sitting on a small stock of smithore, at the same time I had a total shortage of food, energy, was mostly strapped for cash and had a half dozen (!) undeployed plots halfways into the game. To add insult to injury, a couple of times when I was low on time, I tried to place a mule and lost it when the time ran out.

Eventually I began to sell my leftover smithore stock, and somehow managed to not waste the money on booze. In the last few rounds I even climbed into 2nd place, though far from the winning seat. In the end though the other computer players catched up so unusually I ended in last place!

Note that not a single pirate ship arrived during the entire game! All in all a very unusual round, but every once in a while one gotta have those as well.

This one is shaping up really good!

I wonder how difficult it would be to edit the map. Mainly I'm thinking how the game would turn out if the river was horizontal (4+4 squares) instead of vertical (2+2 squares). Everyone and their dog would be able to farm food so there never would need to be a shortage. Fewer squares for the rest though. Energy can be produced in the river though at limited capacity. Since the store exits are to the left and right, one would have to wade across the river most of the time, which would slow down how much you can achieve in one round. I have a feeling that the computer players don't account for crossing rivers and mountains when they take their turn, so it could make one more difference.

 

Has anyone seen a copy of M.U.L.E. with modified map, if it is possible?

Miniature Golf Plus apparently has a construction set, if we keep listing such games that let you design own courses/levels without really the desire to repack and sell as standalone.

 

I am not sure what USA Construction Set is - a quiz editor about states, or do you get to redesign the USA?
