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

    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 pods has become unbearable to large portion of the crew. Decisions needed to be made.

    This is vanila SMAC game. No expansion!

    Installation:
    Unzip the folder "gotm-2014-gaian-luck" to the "scenarios" folder inside the game folder.
    Play:

    How quickly can you transcend? To complete this scenario discover all technologies and complete Ascent to Transcendence Secret Project in the smallest possible number of turns.

    • 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

      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...
