Monthly Challenge: July 2015

Post by Kalesin » Wed Jul 01, 2015 8:41 am

Send Lunokhod mission to the Moon before 1960

Image

Thinking ideas to improve the game experience and to make it more fun, I got the idea of making monthly challenges.

In this case we begin on a rather simple: with the Soviet Space Agency, send the Lunokhod mission to Moon before 1960.

Post images and/or upload "savefiles"; win who gets the best date.

I accomplished this on the 4th turn of 1959. How do I send the saved game to you or post the print screen image I create in pa9int?

First thing, congratulations.

If you can the two things, so stay with the image more visible to all.

I'll try to see if we can do "Stickie" with Monthly Challenge Hall of Fame, so register for the winner of each monthly challenge.

After a few practise games I mapped the most efficient approach. The first game after that ended with one of my flight controllers simply leaving just one turn before I could launch, this was the second "full-hearted" attempt.

...on the next play I managed even one turn earlier, taking a big risk. On the first attempt nonetheless. Of course this was a kind of "hail Mary"-attempt.

Of course, IN REAL LIFE, the Lunakhod was launched by a PROTON K.

It seems that if things do not change, there will be winners, as NCORE has reached the moon with the Lunokhod on Q3.1958.

You still have 11 days to improve their date!!!
