      Still a pity there's no expansion pack.

      This release is (at least!) patched, I suppose?

      Yes, the GOG version of SMAC is 5.0 (AKA the Win 2k/Vista update), the most recent official patch.

    Gaian Luck

    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 regre...

  • Yitzi's Unofficial SMAX Patch Up to v.2.5b -and Counting
    by 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, particularl...

  • The Alpha Centauri Wiki
    by 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
    by 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...

  • God old games rereleased Smac+Smax
    by 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)
    by 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 th...
