    Now that im playing on transcend id like to bump this.

    I note that some others have recently won their first game on thinker, and might appreciate this also.


    Obligatory content:

    Ive tried a couple of starts on transcend - Tried deirde again, but was frustrated that when i sent my scout on patrol, my first base went into riots as soon as it hit size 2 (ISTR).

    Tried Lal, but first time i landed right next to Morgan. tried early vendetta, - that was impulsive, i had no offensive techs yet. Could as easily have refused peace, but stayed in truce. then proceeded to an offensive tech.

    Also its my impression the mindworms are more common and maybe even more aggressive early on this level.

    Plus, there are combat tactics/strategy issues discussed in detail in v2 which are only touched upon in v3.

    v3 goes into more detail of unit specific strategy and tactics.

    for those of use who don't have SMAX yet

    ^bump^
    (because there is some stuff in Vel's Wonderful SMAX v3 Guide that does not apply to SMAC)

    ***unbump***

    I wish I could. **hangs head low**

    This is the old thread. The new one is "Signed, Sealed, and Delivered...", which I will bump again right after this one.

    Again, the best links are at the end.

    Vel,

    I really have to disagree with your "three styles of play" idea. There is only one good style. That would be your hybrid style. Take Miriam for example. I tried to use her like you say in your guide for a long time. I never did well until I dropped that and started working on my infrastructure. SIZE DOES MATTER!

    vel,

    super work on the strat guide! you gotta put this on a web site.

    to download, just choose "Save As" and your browser should save it as a file. it works for me.
