   Welcome Downsizer!   You've found the right game and best site.  There are many more modern games that Smac(x) still puts to shame.

  Hmmm...horsepower?  Your backup rig predates the miniaturization to hamsterpower?

My backup rig is a cross-dresser. It will have an over-priced graphics cars in times of plenty and in more lean times, it will get stripped down to the Intel integrated graphics. You can chart my financial status by the status of the rig. I'm thinking that every modern gamer should be take a few months and wean themselves off of a graphics card in order to force them to play games like Fallout, AC and Planescape Torment.

Hello fellow humans, I'm totally not a bot.

But seriously I found you somewhere in Reddit.

I've been playing Alpha Centauri since forever, and also played the whole Civ series since its first game.

I'm also a game developer.

Thanks!

     Welcome, GM!  Even if, as a mere Player, I find your name both hope inspiring and scary  ;lol.

  Have you had a chance to peruse the forum sections The Theory of Everything and Modding yet?  We have many threads there on game design both ancient and active.  A couple groups of them currently quite active.
  Another voice (with mind attached) would be quite interesting so jump right in if you wish.

  Our resident site manager Bunkle is present and accounted for and extends his unkle-ly talents to the community.  Chat him up, he will be a good guide to the site and it's history.  He's also into game graphics and knows who's working with sight and sound.

  Are you by chance the sub-species of human commonly called a 'code monkey'?   If so, you might find extra interest here as decompiling the (undocumented) code, patching bugs, and enhancing AI behavior have past and current projects homed here and the work is far from complete.

I'm glad to be here. I found you guys from a Reddit thread. Possibly started from someone above me in this thread. I used to be active in the civfanatics forums but that was ages ago when the web was new. :)

   We're glad to have you here.

  A lot of folks find us by word-of-web, or searches.

  Hmm, you must be as old as I if you remember the infant Web.  Have you been playing SMAC(X) since the last century as well?

Hello everyone. I found this forum by accident on reddit. I figured why not take a look. I found SMAC back when I was a young teenager in the early 2000's. I think I have my original book and tech tree poster stashed somewhere. Anyways. Totally not a bot. Thanks for having me!

I am not a bot! Long time lurker actually, but I have some questions for the people in the Mod Forum which means I have to come out the woodwork and interact with humans (even if it means digitally). I may have jumped the gun and posted in the mods forum before posting here  :-[

I am looking forward to being a part of the community!

p.s. I found the AC2 site from google searches. Looking up SMAC/SMACX mods and one thing lead to another!

Hey folks. I am not exactly new here- I had an old account under a different handle by the name of Comrade Crimson.

Decided to roll with a brand new account given I hardly use that moniker anymore and the fact that it's been so long- don't remember the login details and I think starting fresh is better. Been quite some time and people evolve and change, etc.

I'll probably be up to shenanigans with faction creation and possibly some content like I used to; my interest in this game has been revitalized upon learning that live multiplayer has been made more feasible.

Hi there!

Found this site through a google search while trying to customize a faction; I used to play SMAC a lot back in 2013, but fairly recently some friends convinced me to do a D20 Future campaign, which I mostly based off SMAC. Got me wanting to pick it up again!

Welcome! A fellow pen and paper enthusiast I see. There's lots of modding tools if you ever figure to pick that up again too.

Yes! I'm currently struggling with just getting a custom leader portrait up, so it may be slow going!

Hi all!

I found this site/forum many years ago. And again several days ago thru the conversation on forums.civfanatics.com

Today I registered again, because can't find/remember my old registration.

Hi, just registered to correct a typo I saw on the wiki to make things a little easier on whoever plays SMAC after me. I finished my first SMAC game here in 2019. I found this website through a google search trying to figure out the benefits of different terrain types.

Our first challenge is to create an entire economic infrastructure, from top to bottom, out of whole cloth. No gradual evolution from previous economic systems is possible, because there is no previous economic system. Each interdependent piece must be materialized simultaneously and in perfect working order.. otherwise the system will crash out before it ever gets off the ground.
