hello, ikonoklast61 and welcome to AC2! do you want to play PBEM or IP games?
Anyone else feels like it's time to fix the faction graphics bug?

I don't really know what those are. I've only played myself and the computer.

PBEM=Play By E-Mail.  I think IP is over-a-network.  Basically, two types of multiplayer.

Yeah, but it's only a bit of time each day, so you can play more games at once (or do it together with something other than Alpha Centauri.)

Ah. I'd like to play live. I generally have a few hours almost every day at about this time (around 8 PM website time), if anyone wants to play. Please don't mistake my inexperience with multiplayer and online playing for lack of experience with AC. I'm very experienced.

I think you could post in the forum and also in FB (http://www.facebook.com/groups/131175990236847/), but most of the players prefer PBEM,
If you would like a game please tell me.

Can you tell me anything about the playing level or planet size, etc?

Playing level is almost allways tracend (anything less and the AI is useless).

okay. I was thinking about this, and since the levels affect the interaction between humans and AI -- the battles getting harder and the tech coming in slower for humans at higher levels -- wouldn't it be the same for everyone if they were human at any level? We'd all have the same battle odds and the same tech rates (generically).

Anyway, how's the game coming along? Is the trouble finding enough human players available at the same time?

I do, however, in one of my future patches, plan to introduce the option of having the AI be Transcend for strategy/mechanics, but be as aggressive as a lower difficulty level (so that it's not useless but still allows for a more builder-ish game.)
