The mod itself contain one custom random map NOT SCENARIO (later can be be some fan-made map).
The only game rule which must be fixed is the Resources: standard because if it's different you can have wood/food/stone while it's unused. If you try use other map, or different random map the game looks ugly or can crash. In addition computer's Ai cannot play this mod.

Economy


You starting with one Planetary Center (aka TC), 3 (more with some civ) Colonization Ships (aka Villagers) and one Scout Ship.

To gather it, left click on Colonization Ship, and right click on planet (like farms)

To maximal the incoming gold try avoid use all gatherer in one planet. When a planet reach 0 gold, then gatherers cannot work 100%. The best is, when your planet's gold really slowly increasing and not overfarmed.
