Thank you, I hope there are more like this.
I'd recommend RPG 3.0, it's made by the same guy and has some really incredible scripting (although it's much more difficult than this hold, I haven't finished it yet)

Thank you very much for mentioning that. I will look into it when I have the chance.

Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed my hold - the scripting system is very versatile, even before the addition of the DROD RPG commands (which I haven't even looked into yet).

I appreciate the support and hope that this hold helped you (a bit) on your quest up the high scores board! ;)

It did, strangely I got a 1st place score on this one, in one of the training levels. Perhaps it was a US.

Having started playing this using 3.3 (even after having read the post stating it was broken) I've finally finished the last room and beaten the hold.

This hold really shows the versatility of the scripting in Drod and gives you an idea of what can be achieved. I imagine the boundaries have been stretched even further with GatEB as well. This hold contains a mining engine, with a few tutorial rooms and some tougher puzzle rooms. It would have been nice to see a few more architects contribute a few more rooms (maybe a contest could have been arranged?) but the last level is pretty tough and I expect most people will spend a while on it. It's hard to explain exactly what you do - the best thing is to install and play it for yourself. I'm aware that Jason also created the RPG 3.0 hold which I haven't got round to playing yet and he clearly has a good grasp on the complexities of scripting in the Drod engine, and how this can be used to create a seemingly different game to the original.

If you'd like something a bit different from the norm, I would definitely recommend you try this hold.

My rating:

Difficulty: 6
Fun: 8

Just a heads up, while this is a TCB hold in a few minutes I will be uploading a new version of this hold because a change that happened in TSS 5.0.1 [sic[/rb] that actually invalidated almost all of the demos there. If you replayed this hold in TSS 5.0.1 you might've noticed the brains next to the player's starting position in the rooms.

Anyhow this hold will then be available only from TSS 5.1+, a more detailed report will be available once I go through all the currently failing demos.

Issue: In Training Center 1E, I went through the upgrade thingy after upgrading the converter, and was prompted with a "What would you like to buy? Yes/No" text box.

I can't undo from this text box at all. Not sure if this is a hold issue or an issue with the beta build I'm using (5.1.0.6345).
