    Like Starfish said, I'm a newbie too. I'm not sure how is this done? I asked a question and it went unanswered.

      Either I can edit a whole thread into a kind of discussion-article, or I can use a good post on its own.

        Thank you, Skanky Burns

        So we just post links to this thread? Perhaps we should divide the whole project into sections based on volunteers so we don't go over the same thing ?

          I'm about to be publically lynched... but............ I've heard of it, but never read, Vel's Strategy Guide... links people? In other news, what is the highest possible percentage rating? 250%

            Ouro - try the 'At long last' thread at no. 2 in this forum - I think there are links in there.

            As for the advanced guide, I'm happy to try and help, but how shall we organise it? And what shall we classify as advanced? Perhaps topics like:
            Ecodamage Management
            Combat post Doc Air
            Tech beelining post IA
            The metagame
            PBEM/multiplayer strategies
            ...and many, many more?

              Also, does it all have to be limited to Apolyton? Can we include links from other sites?

                  I don't see any reason to limit our links to just Apolyton. We want the best strategy guide for ourselves to use, so if someone has some good SMAC strategy out there...

                    Indeed, we can link to anything we find useful. The first link should be the one Googlie posted above. This is your "basic training" as a SMAC/X player.

                      The one Googlie posted is for SMAX. This one is for SMAC. I'm not sure if this was simply 'copied' into the Googlie's link and had SMAX information added, although? I haven't really sat down and read those yet, I admit. It's a shame I know.

                      EDIT: I quickly scanned Googlie's link and it seems that there's no updates on landmarks introduced to the game via SMAX. An oversight? It doesn't make this guide any less excellent nevertheless.

                          Yep, this is looking good Nice work.

                          Its interesting to see how people's ideas have changed on some BIG subjects like specialists since 4-5 years ago.

                              Those Synergy posts by Vel are mostly stuff that missed the publication date for the guide. Sweet strategy goodness (although as usual for Vel, no hard numbers)

                                I'll have to get and read those... then I might actually become a decent player... although, I will have to admit, I have come up with a few irregular strategys on my own... most of which I found lots of people use here.... Oh, you missed the first link, an early version of Vel's Guide, http://db.gamefaqs.com/computer/dosw...rossfire_a.txt
