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

do you have Hamachi installed, jumanjinho?

here is the guide to installing and playing SMAC with Hamachi:
Quote
Installing and configuring Hamachi
Download and install last version of Hamachi. Disable windows vulnerabilities at install time if you don't want other people to be able to access files shared on your computer.
Close Hamachi.
[In XP] Go to Control Panel > Network Connections > Advanced > Advanced Settings > Adapters and Bindings
[In Vista or newer] Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Centre > Manage Network Connections. Press ALT then go to Advanced > Advanced Settings > Adapters and Bindings
Move Hamachi to the top of the connections list using the green arrow on the right.
[Vista or newer only] Right click on the Hamachi network in Network Connection and select properties. On the networking tab disable (untick) TCP/IPv6 as in the image Hamachi.jpg
Then go to the Networking and Sharing Center and ensure Hamachi appears as a private network. If it does not press Customise on the Hamachi entry and set to a private network. {Can someone who runs vista confirm these last two steps for me?}
Restart your PC.
Attempt to join a network via Hamachi, see the list below for some Alpha Centauri related networks.
Try to ping someone else in the group, if you can, ask them to ping you back (right click, chat).
Playing a game:
Join the same Hamachi network as those you want to play with.
Run Alpha Centauri
Select "Internet TCP/IP Connection For DirectPlay" from the multiplayer menu
Host: select host from the menu.
Other players: select join from the menu and either leave the box empty or input the hamachi IP of the host. Join the game by double clicking on the game name.
The host chooses the game settings and AI factions including handicaps (a lower difficulty level makes the game easier for that player, AI perform best at high difficulty levels. The global difficulty setting has no effect.)
Players press the green button next to their names to change their details and press the "mark ready" button to indicate they are happy with the game rules, factions, map etc.
Once everyone is ready, the host presses the launch game button and the game begins.

It is worth noting at this point that there are a fair number of exploits and weird bugs in SMAC (until scient finishes his patch anyway). For this reason it is advisable that you agree amongst yourselves rules over these exploits as what some regard as a feature is to someone else an exploit. Some people may also be accidentally cheating.

Two possible "exploits" in particular are very easy to use and are considered as valid tactics in as many circles as they are considered heinous crimes. Namely, reverse engineering and upgrading supply crawlers for use in rush buying secret projects. You should definitely decide before the game starts or in the first turn whether these are allowed or not.
