  • Lost Eden a new SMAX mod needs testers

    Lost Eden is a total conversion for Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire. It completely transforms the game from its original, futuristic environment to a strange fantasy world filled with all sorts of unusual characters. This is the alpha version. It is pretty complete, missing only some artwork and sound. After we have received some feedback and have everything ready, we will release a beta version good and proper!

    Lost Eden takes a "Less is more" approach. Some of the more complex gameplay mechanics have been changed or removed to allow for a truly different gameplay experience. If you are wondering what makes Lost Eden so different from Alien Crossfire take a look at this short list of some of the more dramatic changes:

    • It is a new world! Instead of poking about Chiron with a bunch of Mind Worms, you're in the weird and wonderful world of Lost Eden. How did you get here? What's going to happen? You decide.
    • Fourteen new factions to try.
    • Lead using five different species of units.
    • All units in Lost Eden are predesigned rather than using the workshop.
    • Transcendence victory has been removed. All other forms of victory--conquest, economic, diplomatic--remain.
    • Most advanced terraforming improvements (boreholes, condensers, etc.) have been removed.


    But that is just the start! Dive in and explore for yourself what makes Lost Eden interesting for you!

    Check out the the readme file for more information.

    Lost Eden can be downloaded here. It is 10.7 MB.

      I have attached the one from the readme file and I have asked Kilkakon for a diplomacy screen shot.

      Edit: Let me know what type of writeup you need for an article, e.g. length, coverage and I'll provide a draft. A link to a good existing article as a sample would be helpful.

      Thank you, but an URL would have been enough.

      Well, I just took the introduction from the readme, but if you want to elaborate on it, you can still provide a draft, and I will update the article. You can also add a lot of images, if you like. All you need is to put it into a nice post, with all the formating. This way I can promote it directly to Spotlight, without having to much formating and so on. By the way you also need an avatar, this looks much better on that Spotlight widget.

      The introduction will be fine.

      I have two more screenshots from Kilkakon attached to this post.

      I think the introduction works. I've uploaded an avatar.

  • Gaian Luck - scenario for Gaians (December 2014 GotM)

    Gaian Luck

    by Mart
    Shortly after planetfall, you could review reports about surrounding terrain. There is abundant plant life, fertile soil, rivers and sea coast. Not only you grabbed with Deirdre more landing pods from U.N.S. Unity, but also will be able to establish a colony in a very good location. Other mission officers could not be reached by radio. They have either equipment malfunction or they did not survive this emergency landing. While regretting loss of life, you are not that worried about getting all those wrong ideas for future of this human colony out of your way. Just last corrections on the tabview and report will be ready for Lady Deirdre Sky. Living these past days in almost constantly moving escape pod...

  • Yitzi's Unofficial SMAX Patch Up to v.2.5b -and Counting
    Buster's Uncle
    After nearly 20 iterations in slightly over a year, Yitzi's .exe patch for Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire, the Alpha Centauri expansion, has become a must-have for many SMACers. Yitzi said the project, incorporating previous patching from scient and kyrub, arose from a desire to better balance AC gameplay. "The main purpose is that the game has certain imbalances and design flaws, and is good enough for them to be worth fixing; some can be fixed via modding the attached text files, particularly alphax.txt, but some can't, so I'm making it so that they can by adding new variables that can be modded. "It fixes some bugs and adds a lot of new modding options, and will add more in the future. It's still technically in beta, so if you find a bug with it that isn't in previous patches just report it and it'll get fixed. "As for...

  • The Alpha Centauri Wiki
    ete
    On and off for the past few months I've been working on a wiki for Alpha Centauri, since I like wikis, building things, and Alpha Centauri. It's probably about time I announced it properly. Here it is.

    Currently it has:
    A full set of datalinks, based on the datalinks update with many improvements by me, Guv'ner, and others.
    An archive of factions which currently contains 132 custom factions, searchable and categorized by everything from factions opposed to Police State, through factions with a Planet bonus, to Progenitor and factions with energy interest.
    Information on the various unofficial patches.
    A versioned set of core text files (alphax, helpx, etc).

  • CGN Forum Closure
    Buster's Uncle
    As Petek posted it at AC2:


    As I said on my own forum, and at CFC AC, we've gotta do something to protect the SMAC(X) nexii out there - get in the habit of checking by regularly, and looking for reasons to post. A dead forum that's still up has useful content to browse as long as it stays up, of course, but the nature of forums is that there's a certain amount of people coming and going, and a healthy community needs regular newb infusions - which don't happen much where there's no activity to begin with.

  • God old games rereleased Smac+Smax
    Main_Brain
    Good old Games rereleased earlier this year Alpha Centauri, but Good old Games did not release Alpha Centauri's expansion Alien Crossfire with it. However, Good old Games released it as a Christmas present to all those who bought or will buy it from Good old Games.

    Note from the editor: GoG could have put it more cleary on the their SMAC games card, like putting it into the title otherwise I wouldn't have missed earlier.

  • November 2012 Game of the Month: Nomads (SMAC)
    bdanv

    The November 2012 Game of the Month - Nomads - was built around a custom faction made by Torvald Normann (Cytroll) with art by Robin Pirez and BUncle, who added his personal touch for the new leader portrait. Your mission, as the leader of this faction, is to fight your way to a Conquest Victory. Estimated time of play: +/- 4 hours, depending on your skill level.

    Background After the tragic death of Ahto Ilmar, ex-Colonial Marines Officer of Unity and leader of the Nomad faction since Planetfall, you, Steinar Vog, as his second-in-command and newly-appointed Companion, finally have the means to achieve your goals. The sce...
