It's really short, but I think you will like it.
Get it here.

Well! I, for one, am appalled that you would plagiarize Dallerdin's work in this manner! :P

Having never played it, I did not realize the similarity. I feel dumb now. I must point out, however, that mine is shorter.
Let's hope he doesn't go after me like Alcritas went after Solberg.

Oddly, though you used fewer newline characters and has a shorter name, your version is actually 22 bytes larger. I somehow doubt that Dallerdin will feel a strong need to defend his intellectual property, though.

Hmm, that's strange. I erased all of the scripts as well. I only left the scenario script and the .bas file, and shortened the scenario script, getting rid of all the comments. Is there anything else I can get rid of?

You could take out tabs, and I think Dallerdin got his to work without putting in the START_STATE; if you do both those things I think you can shave off about 35 bytes. However, if you make the only town be a 32 by 32, it looks like you can cut off almost 6K, and that would put you far ahead in terms of lowering overall size.

Sorry, Ephesos. I am working on a real scenario, but this struck me as a good joke. Unfortunately, it seems someone else beat me to it.

Every scenario has a 48x48 town that you can't get rid of, right?

I believe that is correct.

Oh, yeah, the windows editor won't let you change the size of a town. I guess I really need to get to work on my windows port. . . in my plentiful spare time.

...you know, I would've given it a 0, but the CSR scale stops at 1.
