Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri & Alien Crossfire => Command Nexus => Topic started by: Mart on November 17, 2018, 02:19:50 PM
Something to try. A game on a standard size planet.
Original 7 factions. Playing Gaians, and the "background" mod is MGM (Minimal changes for maximal Gameplay improvement Mod), version 0.5
It is Late Game, although we start in 2101 with classical landing.
Place unzipped folder in your "scenarios" game subfolder.
Unmarked zip is for vanilla game (official game version - unmodded, GOG, Planetary Pack, scient, kyrub, etc.), version for Yitzi patch is marked [Y3_5].
HOW TO PLAY
Start game choosing: SCENARIO > PLAY SCENARIO
Navigate to scenario folder and select "lategame_gaians.sc" file.
- You can choose difficulty level, and also your faction, but this game is intended for Gaians, and their level is Transcend. All other AI factions would be on Librarian.
- Additionally, when you start or load a save from this game, you should also get a description about how to check, you have the modified from mod rules in this game.
- Research is directed, this will make a bit easier to play in early game especially.
Any you choose for your game.
The MGM is intended to fix several most gameplay problematic issues, see the next post with details.
Expect a game of around 500-700 turns, if you play builder style with transcendence aim.
