  • PBEM Question

    Hello all,

    I'm new here. I'd love to get involved in some PBEM of SMAC. I bought the game when it came out. I play a quick tiny planet at transcend level (basically getting my a** handed to me) every once awhile. Even won a few games at that level, but few and far in between. can I get some information about getting involved.

    Thanks for any info.

    Hi TreeBeard,
    welcome aboard! Basically, posting here is a good way to start. For various reason people will drop out of games from time to time (thats how I've picked up most of my games - taking over for others who couldn't continue to play, for whatever reason). Also, here is another location for posting to start new SMAC/ SMAX games:

    Just sign up and you'll recieve updates as to games forming up.

    Look forward to meeting you on Planet sometime!

      The other method rather than waiting for a game to start is to try to start one yourself. Just post a " new game starting, players needed " thread in this forum specifying what you are looking for in the way of settings, number of players etc ( 4 is good, more tends to move slowly). Being specific on the settings you plan to use does away with a a lengthy discussion on that matter and prevents attracting players who want totally incompatible ones

      These invariably seem to fill up in a short while and then its a matter of leaving yourself to the random map generator or getting some type of map from someone.

      have fun and enjoy

        Thanks for the tips guys. Since I'm new to Smac PBEM I think I'll search for a game first.
