Yitzi's unofficial SMAX patch 1.1

http://alphacentauri2.info/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=121

Includes Kyrub's patch, plus fixing a couple of bugs, plus added a lot of user-modifiable variables for ecological damage.  Further information can be found in the readme inside.

Looks like lots of work went into this patch. Nice job!

One question: I understand that current maps aren't compatible with your patch. However, will installing the patch overwrite any maps in the Maps folder (other than the Maps of Planet)?

A technical note: I had to download the zip file three times before I got a working copy. The first two times the file was truncated and wouldn't unzip. Probably just a hiccup with the board.

Not unless you're using some strange variant filing-system that replaces folders instead of merging them.  (It also will not overwrite the non-alien-crossfire versions of the Maps of Planet.)

Sounds like it.

So, what is now the correct order of installation with the GOG version? The steps in Petek's CFC guide, plus the application of this patch?

This patch can be treated as a replacement of Scient's or Kyrub's patch.

Awesome. If I can dig myself away from some of these other gaming projects I am on, I will give it a whirl.

Hell, even Kyrub himself has materialized! Good times!

Ok, I've checked that out, and found the problem (the original program directed it to a certain spot, Kyrub removed a lot of the code but kept the jump to empty code, I didn't realize that that spot was directed-to, so when I condensed the function it meant that it called outside the function causing a crash), so I'll have to just check through the code, see if there are any others like it, and then fix the jumps.  It's quite fixable, and will be fixed in 1.2.  Thanks for catching it.

Great!

I've started two more games and ran into this both times... so how soon will that update be available?  ;lol

Until then, you can switch back to kryub's patch.

I already had, but thought I might be able to provide more testing.

Just curious as to what code the error is in, if I could alter my style of play to not keep hitting it?
