Anyone else feels like it's time to fix the faction graphics bug?

Perhaps some open questions to direct the conversation? :)

something like:
"What is your favourite unit?"
"Wishlist for Alpha Centauri 2" ?

This isn't very original, and perhaps not very fitting...
But an RP thread might be beneficial if you're okay with those kinds of people hanging out here.
I really don't know any serious Roleplayers, so if they're weird...


(Mission impossible: Skunk BU is ago. We'll have to start digging to do it)

Roleplayers tend to prefer specialized RP forums where is easier to reach the critical mass for such games. That being said, we'll give full support to anyone willing to coordinate such project.

Anyway, thanks for the suggestion. Keep them coming!

I think the hardest thing about a SMAC RP would be deciding what you would RP as.
It's a turn-based strategy game, so do you play as the leader? That would basically be like an AAR, and nobody can remember the entire map of SMAC with bases and terrain features.
Individual citizens in a random town? That is what I'm thinking. Maybe Godwinson's Hope is the last remaining base after some mind-worm-apocalypse, and only a few hundred people are left...
You know what, thats good. I'd definetly attempt to write an opening and some guidelines for the first Roleplay thread. So if you want, I'll get working on that.

Go ahead! I'll try to remember who was interested in roleplaying AC in the last..  :-\ few years.

I'll PM you an opening to one whenever I'm done with it.

If everybody's playing as leaders, you might as well play the game itself.  You'd have to play as a group of individual citizens, though possibly with abilities (maybe one's an elite Spartan soldier, another's a Gaian telepath with a mind worm boil, and another's an Angels hacker.)

Don't worry, I figured out what I wanted. I PM'd sisko. Of course, if something like that did happen there would have to be a few different RP threads with different scenarios/player controlled characters.

Proper care and education for our children remains a cornerstone of our entire colonization effort. Children not only shape our future.. they determine in many ways our present. Men and women work harder knowing their children are safe and close at hand, and never forget that, with children present, parents will defend their home to the death!
