Neither choice is hard to implement and we already have the Doomsday map for lots of disasters (kicking it off with meteors).

That being said, I'd still vote for 1000+ meteor showers for laughs, even Eden's Meteor Defense would really get a run for its money.

I doubt that will happen or if any one knows how to go about or even if they know where it is.  other then that removing the sound from the voices so you dont hear it.

Actually, it could be done by writing a patch that changes the way alerts are sent to output by adding in some checks that discard even more excess messages.

I have a vague idea of what I'm talking about, but I'm not able to detail at the moment. Hooman or BlackBox should be more competent on this subject.

Could be a candidate for patch section of that competition thingy. It shouldn't be terribly hard to implement. I wouldn't be surprised if Hidiot could figure it out.

Btw, I think the relevant sections of code are already commented in the .udd file. Just trace through the creation of meteors, starting at TethysGame::SetMeteor.
