Welcome to alphacentauri2.info! 


Welcome to internet's only fan site dedicated to one of the best 4x TBS games ever produced: Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri (also known as SMAC). Released in 1999 by EA, the game was designed by Bryan Reynolds and Sid Meier, the creator of the Civilization series.
The game is praised for its complex gameplay, the science fiction storyline and the immersive atmosphere created with in-game writing and voice acting. However, the sci-fi elements came somewhat second after the speculative vision of the future society elements.
The player embarks himself on a transhuman journey and this ascent is depicted in a series of quotes and movies, giving remarkable depth to a genre normally impersonal and cold.
The main focus of this site is to build a friendly place for all Alpha Centauri players, a place where we can keep alive the legacy of the SMAC universe and, why not, dream of a long-awaited sequel.

Alternate Original Seven Text Files Package Version 2.0

http://alphacentauri2.info/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=265

My second attempt at the alternate original seven factions. This time I included much more visually appealing effect description text for each faction. I am also attempting to more fairly balance my factions against each other.

18 structures adapted from Galactic Civilizations 2, laid out to copy/paste into the .pcx of your next custom faction.  These are a lot of work to put together, so please be sure to credit me in the empty space of the .pcx.

Thanks to I Have No Name for the GC2 files I worked with.

The text files say it is a single player version of a PBEM game
where you can play as the Hive, Spartans, or Believers. They are allied
against 4 AI's. However I tried starting a game as the Spartans and they
were not allied to the Believers only the Hive.

From the text files it comes with, it appears that it is designed to test satellite combat.

There is also a bug in it when I tried playing it. If I pick the Gaians
the first unit I am given to move is a Supply Crawler if I push O the
game crashes. If I tell the unit to wait or select a different unit then
come back to it later in the turn I can use the O command without
problem.
