      Patch b for Planetfall version 3 is ready. Download link:

      Version 3 Patch b:

      1. Chopping Forests only provides 10 minerals.
      2. Forest can be planted.
      3. Gold and Silver can be connected to the trade network.
      4. It's possible to trade over Coast and Ocean with Doctrine: Initiative and Ocean Colonization.
      5. Fort provides 3 nutrients. Let's assume it comes coupled with a Greenhouse to survive long sieges. Build time increased to ten turns.
      6. Archeological Dig and Genetics Lab removed. The Field Lab can now connect Monoliths, Artifacts, Rare DNA and Uranium to the trade network provided the required TechCityTrade is researched.
      7. Planet Buster added - just a nuke with a bigger effect.
      8. ECM, Nanometal Armour and Photon Wall special abilities added which provide a +25% combat bonus against respectively Missile, Kinetic and Beam weapons.
      9. Silksteel Armour special ability added which heals the unit 10% per turn.
      10. Wild native life gets a combat bonus equal to 50% of the Flowering Counter.
      11. Flanking promotions re-added.
      12. Unity Foil now only has two movement points and one cargo space.
      13. Activated previously made unit models (which I didn't know yet how to do when they were made). Updated former and CP graphics.
      14. New DLL, enabling stuff mentioned above. Haven't got a complete overview.

        Patch 3d for Planetfall is now available for download.

        A not all-inclusive changelog:

        Version 3 Patch d:

        1. New gamefont.tga with nutrient/mineral/energy icons.
        2. Extra foil movement with Nanoconstruction fixed.
        3. Great Doctor specialists now gives +2 Nutrients, +2 Health and +1 Science.
        4. Tech level one buildings cost decreased to 40 Minerals.
        5. Rec Commons, Rejuvenation Tanks and Hologram Theatre now provide +2 Happy. Please suggest additional sources of happiness for Planetfall.
        6. Nerve Staplers Special Ability added. No matter what civic you're running, it gives +1 Happy for the first unit with this special ability stationed in a base. Under Police State, each Nerve Stapler provides +1 Happy.
        7. Under Police State, the Command Center provides +1 Happy.
        8. Planned now gives +10% Minerals in all Bases, +25 Minerals and +35% Energy to the Headquarters.
        9. Power becomes available with Cloning. It allows unit conscription. Though completely unprofitable right now, as you can only get Gun Infantry.
        10. Rare Desert DNA, Brown/Cyan/Green/Red Algae, Grenade Fruits, Fungal Gin, Ski Vacation and Geothermal Spa resources added.
        11. Terrain/Improvement/Feature yields have been given a complete overhaul. Instead of listing the changes, I'd suggest to look at it as something entirely new. It's now closer to default Civ4 though, so it should be familiar.
        12. Three Ecology Civics added. Unfortunately many things don't show up on the civics screen. Therefore: Fungus produces +1 mineral under Hybrid Ecology. Under Enclosed Biosphere a whole bunch of terrain improvements and features produce one less food. I'd prefer it to be "-1 food on all Flat Moist & Rainy terrain", but that's not possible currently. Also features don't produce negative health. Lastly you can't plant features, nor build farms or condensers.

        Planetfall is brought to you by:

        Don't forget that we're always looking for help with Planetfall.

        The mod could for instance at this point very much use:
        • SDKers
        • a graphics coordinator who understands how Afterworld unit graphics work
        • a mapscripter

          4. Doctor specialist GPP gives Great Doctor...
          5. Some malfunctional python code fixed.
          6. Temporary: all infantry can provide military happiness.

            I have to install Civ4 and buy Beyond the Sword. I thought this idea was dead! Keep this stuff up!

              5. Hydro Plant gives +1 health and no longer +2 energy.
              6. Command Center now gives +2 XP for land units but reduces military production by 10% (also for land).

              13. Changed base defense bonus through culture.

              23. Tech tree changes
              24. Forest provides no energy (only a mineral) and takes somewhat less time to build.
              25. Religions added.
              26. Uranium/Helium/Rubidium boost some units' production speed.
              27. Temporary: Needlejets removed as they're causing crashes

                What sort of help do you need with this? I thought that this project was dead too and I've actually been playing Alpha Centauri quite a bit lately. I'd love to help resurrect it in the Civ 4 world if possible!

                One quick thing to mention though, I am not able to access the screen images... I get this error: "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ',' in /home/apolyton/public_html/upload/view.php on line 184" I'm not sure if this is a problem here or on the site or if the images just no longer exist on Apolyton's server.

                  The earlier C4:AC is dead. Or at least mostly. I believe Rubin is currently making his own SMAC mod and uses the C4:AC title.

                  Planetfall is a different project, taking more liberties with changed gameplay than C4AC intended to. But the goal is of course still to maintain the SMAC atmosphere and story we all love.

                  The mod could at this point very much use:
                  • SDKers
                  • a graphics coordinator
                  • a mapscripter

                  The images in the first post are working for me. Wouldn't know what your problem could be.
                  Can you download the mod and patch? (I can.)

                    Planetfall v4

                    I'd suggest first deleting the version 3 Planetfall folder before installing this one.

                    2. Automatic morale promotions scrapped again. Can be gotten through XP. Most promotions give +10% psi strength.
                    3. Faction leaders given a favourite civic.

                    10. Police State enabled by Factionalism.

                    13. Religious victory added.

                      It's been a long time since I've logged in my 'poly account; but today, after a game of CIV 4, I remembered that there was this project to do a SMAC mod for it.

                      After reading about its death ( ) I bumped into this and...well, gotta buy the expansion in order to install this! I'll look it up tommorrow

                      Keep up the good work!

                        Great project!
                        Modern man calls walking more quickly in the same direction down the same road “change.”
                        The world, in the last three hundred years, has not changed except in that sense.

                          7. Rec Commons, Holo Theatre and Rejuve Tanks only give +1 happiness.
                          8. Punishment Sphere gives +1 happiness.

                          20. Native Life automatically and gradually gains XP until it reaches 10 XP.

                          33. Some civics give extra happiness to the religious buildings mentioned in the previous point.
