Recently a friend of mine & myself have been really enjoying this...sim. Simply a beautiful & well designed game. We also like to challenge each other by competing on the same maps. I have an idea for a scoring method to use when playing vs a friend or friends ( in a lan party scenario, for example ) & would like any input/ideas per this method.
Not really knowing what would be a good numerical value per the inhabitants, I have this thought for rating them.
Adults = 10 pts
Students = 5 pts
Children = 1 pt
Hearts & Stars = 10 pt ( half = 5, of course )
Decide how many years to play to, then add up your pts. This would be an easy/bare bones way to score a game for a "short" head to head challenge.
My main concern is the "correct" value to assign the folks as well as the Hearts & Stars. Thoughts?
