  • CGN Forum Closure

    As Petek posted it at AC2:
    The Civilization Gaming Network (CGN) forums have been closed, according to buster, the forum owner:

    The Civilization Gaming Network forums have been closed for new postings and turned into a static archive. Earlier posts , file uploads, images and the wiki will be kept accessible as an archive as long as some interest is still there.
    Registering as a new members is also no longer possible.
    Existing members will for now still be able to post in the site feedback forum and to use the PM and email to user system.
    CGN focused on SMACX. Originally created to host multiplayer SMACX games, it later became the center of development for scient's unofficial patch.

    RIP CGN.
    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.

    This 'poly AC folder has looked like a reasonably live part of the Greater SMAC(X) community lately, and it's good for everyone if that continues. Engaging/encouraging new members is a start. And if everyone, wherever their primary hangout is, suppresses their natural partisan instincts and supports the other places, the general quantity/quality of conversation will increase everywhere, more help/playing/stategy advice, more MP games, and more modding goodies will be available to everyone.

    A single match burns out quickly; a whole book of matches makes a flame you can't ignore - and add fuel regularly, and you've got a group of campfires that people can gather around forever, beacons to guide future new friends in out of the dark.

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




      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).

    • 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...
