Finally one pure AOM! I'm on it!
I was so thrilled...
Well, I did. And I realized I've already played something very similar, am I right Mr. toddalex4?
Heart of Darkness maybe? The one you submitted 4 or 5 times already. A couple of things are different though... and one of them is... the new title... I have to say it's quite a good stuff by the way, but... i don't think you should do that... Make a brand new one. You already showed you're quite good at it. Just give up this eternal everlasting perpetual Athena rescue. She is surely home by now, long time...
Beside I got a little disappointed, since you made some interesting situations happen which didn't really trigger... anything. Nice layout though, but not so well used. There is something I like about it anyway. The start is much better here by the way.

Apologies for the broken triggers - they have all been fixed now -- these things are like dominoes -- one breaks and the whole bunch is shot. It all works fine now. You are correct in that this is about 50% Heart of Darkness. The rest is new, however, and I believe much more playable. This is closer to what I had originally envisioned and much different from Heart -- hence the new name-- although some of the elements are indeed the same. I certainly did not intend to mislead anyone and apologize if it happened. I'll be more careful with my descriptions next time.

Are you saying your file has been updated? I wouldn't mind trying it again since... I like it. Only if something really happens at this river corner or even the island a little further with some yellow player stuff, you know right above these 2 sea monsters. By the way I always find very sad to see " Player 6 instead " of " Loki's fanatics " or " High heels lovers ".
One problem though; but I'm sure it's only me and my Macintosh. A weird thing happened. At some point, I was unable to build almost anything, no town center ( pitty since you placed so many settlements ) beside the only one I built early by destroying the very first Citadel, but the worse was even no transport boats anymore after I killed Kamos. So I almost got stuck by this newly acquired boat house by Kamos's village with... no boat. And I think I had the same problem with your Heart of Darkness scenario; not sure. But! as I had some transport boats already on the other side of this rocky barrier, I just launched a cheated GP Meteor and got lucky enough to see one and only TP boat flying over the barrier right where it was needed! And finished the game. My life wouldn't be the same without God Powers, and AOM...
And please, no appologies required ever. I had fun!!!!!
I even placed your scenario in my very special " No 1!!!!!! " folder. Truth. Among really good names. Stuff I REALLY and much personally liked.
Beside technical problems, which I don't really care about afterall ( proper english? ), this stuff is fun, could be easily great, and it's such a pitty it's just one step before a perfect game. Too early submitted, often the problem, I know about that " When is it ready? " stuff. A very good feeling travelling along your Jungle Cruise. Feelings... Yep, it could be easily a good 4 or 4,5 rating...
Waiting for your next move. Make it rock!

In answer to your question...I updated the file yesterday (1.26.06). After testing the triggers, they seem to be working fine -- AOM triggers are touchy! I did not experience the problem you mentioned about being unable to create a new transport ship --it worked fine for me. Your description of blasting a transport ship over the barrier was funny stuff! Thanks for the other suggestions and I will use them in the next update.
