The tools don't exist to make a good Epic in MOO, as you indicated

I may have been in error. I did some websearching. As you might expect, 95% of references on "master orion" turned up links to MOO3 and MOO2 material, but I did find one highly useful and well taken care of site.

I found a number of tools there: saved game editors that can do a variety of things, including choosing which races are assigned to the map, editing planets, and more. These are all old DOS tools, almost as old as the game itself, but I've tested them today and they seem to work.

Now the inherent limitation of any editor work is that the scenario designer will have spoiler information, but that's par for the course. I'm not sure that I can edit some of the subtler things, like which diplomatic and strategic bents are chosen for each race, and that sort of thing, but this is at least a great deal better than no tools at all.

I'm afraid that removes one of the larger obstacles to assembling MOO events. This could get ugly.

  Tourney Mission Statement:
Existing Civ III tournaments, contests and group events are universally plagued by elements or shortcomings that lead often to compartmentalized results. Spoilers and privileged info is readily made available while games are still in progress. The game itself remains in flux through a patching process. The scoring system measures only a few elements of the gameplay. We at Realms Beyond are not satisfied to settle for these conditions and compromises.

The Realms Beyond is home to gamers who go beyond the norm, who creatively add depth to good games to make them better, who choose to set our own added limits to gameplay for the purpose of increasing challenge, varying gameplay flavor, and getting more out of the games we love. We discard the usual standards and venture into realms beyond, where we share our passion for gaming with one another, and with those who are like-minded.

We develop and refine our tournament as we go, with the help of the players. Each game is subject to rules, but we keep the framework light, the emphasis on excellence, the focus on the spirit of the game. Come and play. Share, compare, teach, and learn.
