Description: At long last, here it is.  Whether you wish genetic warfare would stop crippling your defenders, dislike some of the expansion features, or want more control over the landmarks in randomly created maps, the answer is here.

Also includes PRACX version 1.06.  To disable PRACX, run the game once to add the [PRACX] section to Alpha Centauri.ini, then change the first line in that section to Disabled=1.

A recent windows 7 update broke alien crossfire.  alpha centauri seems to still run.  The links to patches at firsxis games produce not found errors.  

This is all windows would give me for an error report:

Thanks for your work and can you please add disabling automatic prototyping in your patch? This 'feature' constantly screws up custom designs and disabling it doesn't work in multiplayer.

Yes, they will be changed back to the "default" values in the next release.

However, I do not think there is any way to update an existing download; I would have to provide a new download, and for something as minor as user-changeable values I don't think that's worth it.

Icons.pcx needs to be included for prac/x--it contains additional images used by prac/x.

Some other thread, there was discussion about options in this release version of alphax.txt, that they were remains from some testing:
...
8,       ; Drone rules code {1 to 63}
...
0,       ; Bonus speed per reactor for copters {-128 to 127}
...

Will they be changed to their "neutral" values in the next release?:
0
2
respectively.

If so, maybe this release could be updated with these corrections?

Seems the error resolved itself by rebooting.

I keep getting a 'unable to allocate draw buffer' error and CTD when I start a new game. (using the GoG version, and a dual screen setup).
