Hey guys,

Big update as it's been a while! I've been busy doing lots of searching and tracking down long lost mods & scenarios to rescue and upload. I've also added some new search categories of interest to me and made some big changes to existing ones...

- Merged C&C and Red Alert together to save space.
- Merged Doom with Fallout & Mad Max under a new main Apocalypse category to save space & also added new Terminator, Judge Dredd, Zombies, & After WW3 to the Apocalypse category too.
- Added a new Starcraft category and combined it with the existing Warcraft one to save space
- Added a new Lunar/Moon category to the existing Mars Colonization one.
- Added a new Final Fantasy category
- Added a new Civ Crossover category (Mods that make a Civ game look like another Civ game) as I've been finding some good stuff for these and wonder if there's more out there!

Regarding that rescue work keeping me busy I recently started a huge new scenario catalog & rescue project creating proper download pages at CivFanatics (even rescuing lost scenarios that are not part of this search cause I'm nice like that lol), as well as extra scenario download mirror pages on ModDB and Internet Archive Library to ensure they don't get lost again as both those sites are long living & offer free hosting. At the moment I'm setting up Civ2 scenario libraries on these other sites but I look forward to setting up these library file mirrors for other Civ game scenarios in the future. Uploading to these sites is not hard (I've written guides over in my CivFanatics project thread) so hopefully others in the Civ community eventually follow my example and add to all these collections in the future to ensure all these great old pieces of work live on!

Big update as I widened my search to get help from more communities out there and had some AWESOME responses from people so many thanks to everyone who's contacted me publicly and privately! I'm also starting to look more at newer Civilization games (4-6) and finding some good stuff. Someone pointed out that I should include a The Elder Scrolls (Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim etc) section and gave me several Civ scenarios for it I'd never heard of! I'm a huge TES fan so how could I say no! People also gave me some Warcraft scenarios so yup, we've got a new Warcraft section on the list too, hell maybe I should look at Starcraft while I'm at it too lol!

Note: Project links over in original CivFinatics thread (link in top post) as for some strange reason most forums don't like people coming in and posting 100s of offsite links lol. ;)

Hey guys :)

I’m on the Hunt for big Civilization game series total conversion mods & scenarios with a particular focus on Civ2 & Civ3 (but am now expanding to Civ4, 5, 6 & spinoffs) relating to a whole bunch of my favourite fantasy & scifi movie/TV/gaming franchises. Been posting in a few different Civ forums and getting great feedback, plus whenever someone has told me about an awesome scenario that’s disappeared over the years I’ve managed to track it down and bring it back from the dead to CivFanatics/ModDB/InternetArchive hosting, so helping me has helped the community. Hell in some rare cases I’ve even filled a gap by making the scenario myself haha!

Anyway I figured it was finally time to hit some of the other communities out there for help too (since fans of Civ and these franchises are everywhere haha). Many have already been found so make sure you check my list in the link below BEFORE making suggestions to save yourself time & effort lol!

https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/scenario-hunt-mars-alphac-c-c-ra-dune-mom-col-moo-doom-b5-strek-swars-sgate-homm.657805/

At this stage I'm looking for Civ scenarios relating to...

- Mars / Lunar Colonization
- Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri (& other alien world colonization)
- Command & Conquer / Red Alert
- Dune / Arrakis
- Master of Magic
- Sid Meier's Colonization
- Master of Orion
- Heroes of Might & Magic
- Babylon 5
- Star Trek
- Star Wars
- Stargate
- Apocalypse (After WW3 / Fallout / Mad Max / Judge Dredd / Doom / Terminator / Zombies)
- Lord of the Rings
- Game of Thrones
- The Elder Scrolls
- Warcraft / Starcraft
- Final Fantasy
- Civilization Crossover Mods (Make a Civ game look like another Civ game)


If you're unable to help then that's fine, as maybe my list will still help you find something cool! :)

Damn.. I remember speaking to a girl working on a KQ4 remake a few years ago.. although there were 2 girls working on 2 different KQ4 remakes as I remember suggesting they link up and chat about a possible resource pooling and collaboration but doubt they ever did. I wonder which one it was that I talked to. Either way that's very sad news.

Also that screenshot isn't loading which is strange considering it was only posted a few weeks ago lol.

Blake, didn't I send that to you? Bugger. I'm so sorry. Can you PM me your address again, i'll get it out Monday.

Nah I think you forgot mate haha. I didn't wanna pester you as I feel bad bothering Steve when he's unwell and you when you're busy with the Sierra book. No worries mate I'm PM you. :)

Quest for Infamy / Super old early 2000s QFI demo
« on: April 05, 2020, 06:45:01 AM »
Hey guys,

I was just going through my Quest for Glory related games tribute website and updating stuff, fixing broken links etc and I noticed something I keep forgetting to contact you about.

As you may recall for thoroughness and historical purposes I tribute both your newer QFI game and your old QFI game on my site (screenshot attached), and the old QFI tribute download link hasn't worked in years as I had it linking to the thread Klytos made at your old IA forums where he posted screens and the demo of the old QFI game. Annoyingly I can't seem to find my copy of the demo so I can't even host it myself to fix things.

Any chance someone can send me a copy again? or recover that thread which may still have a working download link?

Original thread at IA was here:

Probably noticed I haven't posted here since I blew up a bit over Ep5 haha (although I see you guys have kept things going on without me thankfully haha). I have kept watching the show though but was less invested in it to continue posting my episode round ups. I said after ep 5 that they'd really need some good eps to undo the damage that did, so...

Here's my thoughts on eps 6-9..

Yeah.. episode 5.. wow.. If people here disliked it you don't have to worry about me arguing with you on this one guys. As this episode broke me too, or more precisely it broke my enjoyment of the show. I didn't enjoy that at all. I thought maybe if I sleep on it I'd feel better but nope, today I'm even grumpier about it haha. Up until now I've only had little nitpicks and have really enjoyed show and have defended it when people have complained about it "not feeling like star trek" but there was next to nothing Star Trek feeling about Ep 5. Those people who complained about past eps not being star trek are gonna looooooove this one lol. I don't wanna walk away from a Star Trek episode feeling frustrated and miserable. When they played the exciting trailer for the next ep and all the cool Borg stuff at the end I didn't even give s***. I was like.. whatever. They're gonna have to work hard in the next few eps to undo the damage that one just did. I can only hope that they had to go that dark and callous to setup the audience to be brought back to the light and happy ending lol. But I can't help but think that if it turned me off that badly then all those people out there who's really not been that into the new show and were barely holding on will probably be like "stuff this!" and be done with it after seeing that ep lol.

Spoiler (hover to show)

Urgh.. end of rant. Breath Daniel.. Just breath... lol

Like I said.. they're gonna need to work hard to undo the damage this episode did. I think I'd rather rewatch most of the episodes in discovery season 1 than ever watch that episode again lol.

Everywhere I go so far I've seem pretty horrified responses to ep5. I've seen a couple of dudes say they loved ep5 though, I was like WAAAT lol.

Yeah I'm just vpn torrenting to be honest.. not great I know but I ALWAYS buy the bluray boxet at the end (kind of a special features nerd haha) so they'll get my money eventually lol.

I don't pirate games anymore though.. gotta be a good 15yrs + since I last did that. I like physcial collecting too much. Sadly thats a dying thing though so I'm slowly embracing Steam & Gog lol.

Anyway.. episode 4 seen (belated).. WE'RE OFF!:

Guess I better hurry up and watch Ep 5 now instead of reading comments as that's just asking for spoilers haha.

Didn't Picard say something to the scientist from the Daystrom Institute that they couldn't replicate Data's positronic brain, even Data couldn't manage that. I took that as a reference to Lal.

I just rewatched the scene to see. The scientist says "no has ever been able to redevelop the science used to create Data" but doesn't say the even data couldn't bit. Later Picard says "Data always wanted a daughter" which would be the closest reference to him creating Lal I guess.

Lal was mentioned a number of times in the first episode...

Don't think she was mate lol. There are reviewers and fans all over the net wondering about the zero mention of Lal. All Data daughter references in the first ep are about Dahj and her twin sister. But if you're sure feel free to chuck me a timestamp and I'll go look to see if you're seeing something we're all missing haha.


Episode 2 of Picard just seen. Glad it explains some of the mysteries & fan complaints about the first episode.

Spoiler (hover to show)

Oh and apparently CBS has posted the first episode of Picard on YouTube for a limited time. So, if people dont have All Access or Amazon and want to check it out, you have til Feb 7 to watch it for free. Naturally it's region locked though urgh. :/
