Sorry for the delay here as well. Btw I changed your time a bit because you're supposed to start your timer when the "Begin Game" button is pressed (which you didn't as well on the pirate run but the category rules out there made it a bit confusing so it's understandable) and it ends when the last input occurs not when you have the proof of victory.
I have trusted the time you have given because I'm not sure neither, but if you make another run, maybe it would be better to not stop the timer by yourself so we can pause on YouTube at the right time.
Uh, I just came back here by curiosity. Why are every speedruns deleted except the Avatarinator's one ? I'm not on the discord anymore so I don't know if another rule has been added or something like that.
Well, I'm not sure about it. I've just look at the discord, I'm sorry I didn't see you already talk about it and I feel like Acrumus is kinda right when he says it looks like ancient%. If your goal is to make a category where the speedruns would go up to the 500 turns, maybe we have to do a category that would only allow you to do a score victory with Game Speed on standard and the Limit Turns by game speed. Eitherway I feel like it's kinda useless because other victories can still be achieved way before you reach the 500th turns no ? (even with the ruleset you're talking about) Maybe we can add a different category for each victory to differenciate the basic game with Gathering Storm like it has been done for the science victory if that's what you want.
Concerning the idea to compete by minimum turns the speedrun takes, I know that there used to be different measures for the speedruns on Hitman 2 and Crusader Kings II but apparently it has been removed. I think this is a good idea and you should talk about it with other mods because I don't think I'm allowed to add it and/or I don't even know how to do it.
The goal of a speedrun is mainly simply to be able to know the minimum time it takes to finish a game. It is absolutely not necessary that the game seems normal, moreover it's rarely the case in speedrun.
I'd like to run this game but you don't say exactly when to start livesplit and when to stop it.
