SNAC v1.2 by ShiNing1

Description: Shining1's awsome work on modifying SMAC. Goal:
* Restore some balance between 'builder' tactics and 'conqueror' tactics.
* Eliminate effective early game 'rushes', i.e any major attacks that occur within the first 40 turns of play.
* Lessen the effects of ICS (Infinite city sprawl).
* Rebalance factions in light of current tactical knowledge.
* Tune up midgame interest.


In Brief:
* Base defense systems are greatly improved (defense factors increased, more free systems for defenders).
* Added five new technologies (Doctrine: Intelligence, Doctrine: Destruction, Applied Systems Planetary Engineering and Secrets of Genetics), rebalancing some of the tech tree.
* Delayed the arrival of some key attacking systems and weapons.
* Made terraforming slightly more effective, but also more dependent upon technology.
* Rebalanced costs of base facilities, esp early game facilities (now a LOT cheaper), and SPs, most of which are increased in cost, reflecting the geometric decrease in time needed to build them and, in some case, their extreme power.
* Adjusted the seven original factions to add game balance, especially wrt the Hive, Morgan, Spartans and UoP.
* Updated the help files.
See the full readme.

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

* Random quote

We are all aware that the senses can be deceived, the eyes fooled. But how can we be sure our senses are not being deceived at any particular time, or even all the time? Might I just be a brain in a tank somewhere, tricked all my life into believing in the events of this world by some insane computer? And does my life gain or lose meaning based on my reaction to such solipsism?
