Is there a way to increase the player count above 7 or is it too hardcoded into the game like with Civ 1 & 2?
Also I can't remember what happens when a barb mind worm attacks a factions empty city? Do they capture it like the Barbs can in Civ or do they just kill the place or mess it up?
Finally out of curiosity why is this place called Alpha Centauri 2?
In my playing around with the Scenario Editor, I discovered you can assign units to the native faction, but not adjust other parameters for that "faction" (such as aggressiveness or research priorities <chuckle>). Of course, they don't have bases or governers, or therefore "territory". I have no idea what would happen if you gave them a faction file or how you would link it to native life part of the AI. I did confirm an observation I read somewhere in these Forums that native life units you place only persist for a couple few turns, except for Fungal Towers, which stay in game indefinitely. I haven't tried giving them *non*native units, like colony pods or scouts, but now that I've realized that, it's something I'm just dieing to try out One could try making a colony pod establish a base and see if that works and what would come of it.
BTW Blake, I tried to go to your Blake's Sanctum page for SMAC, but the URL is broken.http://blakessanctum.x10.mx/Games/CivColSeries/AlphaC/AlphaC.htmlThe Civ III link is also broken.
I can create Alien (Barb) units and even give them regular units like colony settlers.
That's weird! Will they actually found cities with those? Or do they just walk around and eventually get killed?I'm afraid I don't know anything about save game editing.
Well there were some official patches for original SMAC, long before GOG. Maybe that's your trouble. Getting, installing, and verifying original patches is not an Art I'm up on, as there's no present need for it, given the cheapness and frequent sales of GOG. For the true skinflints a path of least resistance would be to install PRACX. Barring that, you could find the original game patches somewhere on this site and apply them to see if it makes things work.Or maybe it's as simple as setting a compatibility mode for SMAC?
