    Discussion thread for this scenario: http://alphacentauri2.info/index.php?topic=1413.0

    War Crimes (by Buster's Uncle - pt.1)

    The rover patrol along the disputed border with the Gaians had been routine.   Ravi was relating one of his stories about yet another improbable romantic adventure from the driver’s seat, while Lev scanned the landscape from shotgun and pretended to listen.  They’d pulled duty together lots of times over the years; Ravi wasn’t a bad guy, if you could stand the bragging.  He was a good Spartan.

    “So when I put my pants on the next morning, I realized I had 10 more EC in my pockets than I’d left barracks with,” Ravi said, “I don’t remember everything, but she must have paid-”

    “BOIL!” Lev shouted, pointing towards a fungus-covered rise.

    Ravi instantly slammed the wheel left towards the threat; it was doctrine to attack mindworms on sight, before they attacked you.  Lev brought the turret gun to bear and opened fire.

    Lev saw the world swirl before his eyes; contracting, expanding, contracting, expanding – whirling - impossible pressure building.  He remembered every time he’d been cut in his entire life at once.  Ravi’s screams beside him were the hunting cries of great cats. Fangs ripping at his flesh, eating him!  

    WORMS BURROWING IN THROUGH HIS EYES!



    Ravi slowly realized he wasn’t dead.  He hurt too much to be dead.  He blearily realized he was folded over the wheel of the recon rover.  Ugh.  The worm had counterattacked while they were still in motion and they’d crashed into something.  He looked over at Lev.

    His mind blanked out again.  



    Ravi didn’t remember sealing his airmask, grabbing the flamethrower and exiting the cabin, but his training had held strong.  Making sure of every last bit of the boil was S.O.P.  His throat was too raw to scream his rage at the burning remains; there was nothing but pain.

    He was looking around to be sure he was done when he spotted the barely-stirring woman lying prone nearby, her hands clutched to her head.  Gaian insignia.

    It was true then; the Gaians were controlling mindworms for weapons.  Unleashing those horrors on people.  Killed Lev.

    He couldn't even scream as he aimed the flamethrower.


    Editorial (by DrazharLn - pt.2)



    The Interview (pt.3)

    “Commander Santos? I’m Dean Gómez, with Instant Briefing.” Gómez’ eyes slowly adjusted to the dim hospital room as Santos turned from the window he’d been standing at. “I’m here for the interview. How are you today?”

    “Gómez… What rank?” Ravi said.

    “Lieutenant,” Dean said, “Reserves, of course, but that won’t last with war on the way.”

    “Well sit,” Santos said, himself settling on the edge of the bed, tiredly.

    “How are you holding up, Commander?” Gómez said.

    “I’ve been better and been worse,” Santos said, “The nightmares are pretty bad, still, but I’m okay when I’m awake,” he grinned wryly. “Now, there was this time that I was seeing this woman that- “ He broke off at a sudden loud commotion of voices in the hall.

    Gómez’ datapad beeped loudly at the same time. Glancing at the screen for a second, he exclaimed, “The Gaians have declared vendetta!”

    The two men looked at each other, surprized. Everyone knew war was coming after the border incident, but no one had expected the Gaians to start it.

    “I’m doing fine, Lieutenant Gómez,” Ravi said slowly, “The nightmares have gone away. Tell them I’m ready for active duty; I’m going to kill the Gaians.”

    DIRECTIONS
    1) Download the zip file WarcrimesOS.zip and place it into your main game directory. usually this is: C:Program FilesFiraxis GamesSid Meier's Alpha Centauri
    2) Unzip it there.
    3) Start up SMAC (not the expansion), then select "Scenario", "Play Scenario", and then go to the subdirectory "1005 WarcrimesOS" and choose the scenario.
    4) Choose the difficulty level and the game will automatically load with the Spartans.


    OBJECTIVES
    For GotM 1005, any base on the map counts as an objective.
    As Governor of the Southwestern region of the Spartan Empire, you will have to conquer all Gaian bases at the west of the Freshwater Sea.
    You will be eligible for the GotM even if you don't achieve all your objectives. The minimum requirement is 1 (one) conquered/subverted base.



    [SIZE="5"]WARNING![/SIZE]
    • You cannot build additional bases in this scenario. The Spartan people are afraid to relocate closer to the Gaian border because of the recent war crimes. You will have to 'clean' the shores of the Freshwater Sea before the colonists will arrive.
    • You won't be able to direct the research capabilities of the Spartan Empire or trade techs with the other factions. Remember you are 'only' a Governor! (Of course, you can always steal the precious techs available to the Gaian forces).
    • There's no Planetary Council in this scenario. This stuff is only available for the 'guys in the big league' (faction leaders). However you will be able to contact the Gaians using the commlink.

    CHANGELOG
    Habitat Complex available from the begining of the scenario.

    PLAYERS ABOUT THE SCENARIO:
    Quote from: Misotu;122426
    ..The scenario was a clever one - took me ages to get used to it but I enjoyed it once I worked out what was going on!..


    POINTS SYSTEM
    The standings will be calculated using the following criteria (in this exact order):[list=1]
    • number of objectives reached;
    • number of turns needed;
    • AC score.

    meaning:[list=1]
    • On the same difficulty level, the player with most objectives will hold a superior position.
    • On the same number of objectives, the scenario completed in less turns will outweigh the others.
    • If there will be more than one submission still tied, the Alpha Centauri score will decide the winner.


    Example:  coming later..



    SUBMISSION:
    You can send your files (last save before game ends) by email to: borcea [ _ ] dan [ AT ] yahoo [ DOT ] com or post them in this thread.

    By creating a planetary network, mankind on Planet now has the ability to share information at light-speed. But by creating a single such network, each faction has brought themselves closer to discovery as well. At the speed of light, we will catch your information, tag it like an animal in the wild, and release it unharmed-if such should serve our purposes.
