    Is there a guide to Alpha Centauri.ini?

    Is there? I'm learning more and more about what this powerful little file can accomplish, but I'm learning it piecemeal. Is there a definitive guide out there to all the options? Like, is there a way to turn off the pre-designed units? So that I don't have to do so every game? I know there's a preferences line, but I don't have any way to decipher what switch toggles what, not to mention what other things I might be able to do (like learning finally today about how to run AC in my native resolution rather then 800x600)!

    I don't know of such a guide. You can find information about tweaking the ini file in our FAQ and in the SMAC readme file.

    Like, is there a way to turn off the pre-designed units? So that I don't have to do so every game? I know there's a preferences line, but I don't have any way to decipher what switch toggles what, not to mention what other things I might be able to do.
    Are you turning off DESIGN UNITS AUTOMATICALLY via the in-game preferences menu? That option should be saved when you start a new game. If it isn't saved, then you have a problem. Please post again if that's the case.
