[AC2DG] Alpha Centauri
Democracy Game

We started. This is SMAX (Alien Crossfire expansion) game.
Preferred version is scient 1.0, but you can open the save file in any unmodified alphax.txt game version: original official, GOG, Planetary Pack, etc.

RULES:
1) There will be attached saves for this game, with publicly known passwords. Therefore, when you open a save, do not play it. Do not play further turns, so there is not "alternative future" checking, etc. Saves are for given game turn viewing. Game can be played by turnplayers, who play just one turn, then post it for the next faction.
2) You can participate in several teams, like be a drone, data angel, or cultist. Roleplay this, as if you were not aware of your involvement in other two factions (to some extent).
3) It is intended to have no commlink to human factions in pbem/net games before proper contact. A change may be made in alphax.txt. Meanwhile, if viewing turns, do not contact human/team factions before, although you can see them listed on F12 commlink window.

GAME SETUP
Factions:
 ;deidre; Gaians
 ;domai; Free Drones (TEAM)
 ;yang; Human Hive
 ;roze; Data Angels (TEAM)
 ;morgan; Morganites
 ;cha; Planet Cult (TEAM)
 ;lal; Peacekeepers

World size is Standard, Average everything except: Abundant native life, Dense Cloud cover).
The map was engineered to make it more interesting.
Factions are placed in designed locations, they are distributed on the map, so they are not concentrated in some map region.

4 victory conditions:
Transcendence, Conquest, Diplomatic, Economic.
No cooperative victory.

- Flexible start location
- Blind research (YES !!!)
- No unity survey
the rest is OFF.

The game is for certain/obvious reason open, passwords are public.

And maybe a comment on factions choices.


These 3 teams received 2 votes each. Initially, it was thought to be a 2 players game, but I thought, we can always later turn one of the teams to AI and then play 2 chosen ones.


The AI were selected based on these 3 teams origin: Gaians for Cha Dawn, Hive for Domai, Morgan for Roze.
Peacekeepers just for being a general faction and they can also compete in Planetary Governor elections.

Yes, for everyone. I played to Cultists though, so Planet of Cult has current turn.
Anything discussed would be for 2103 then.

And the turn is with Drones in 2103.

In this early turns, I think to play a turn per day, so having 3 factions we would advance 1 MY per 3 days. More or less.
Later, as the game has more stuff to attend to, it would be more like faction/turn/2 days.
It is good to give some time for people to see each turn.
