Script – Challenge Game

You may use a script to define a new game that is created as a challenge game, like what you can do with the [Challenge Game] section on the New Game Setting menu in the game.


Number of Game Years=<2 to 1000> 
This defines how long the challenge game will last.

Ranking Method=<Score, Revenue, Profit, Goal+Score >
e.g. Ranking Method=Goal+Score
This defines the ranking method of the challenge game:
Score – participants are ranked based on their game scores.

– participants are ranked based on their corporations’ annual revenue.

– participants are ranked based on their corporations’ annual profit.

Goal+Score – participants are ranked according to two primary criteria. The first criterion is based on whether they have successfully reached the challenge game’s main goal. The second criterion then evaluates and ranks these participants in accordance with their game scores.
