hadn't thought to have time for this, but I was sick the last few days and had plenty of time for playing.
Good thing I started so late; I was able to use some newly-learned things during this game...
But I fear my report will not be very long this time, now that I have read the thread over in the GalCiv forum with the link where to download MoO. My old disks have read errors and I had thought I won't be able to play MoO ever again. I just re-read the old manual - great read with all the details about the game mechanics! Really something modern games lack.
