Today We Play: Alpha Centauri - SMAC

Today We Play: Alpha Centauri SMAC
It is time for another epic adventure on the huge Map of the Planet in SMAX (abbreviation with the expansion). 

What I need to know to run the game:
  • Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri - Alien Crossfire(expansion) is a 4x4 turn based strategy game from 1999, that take place on a strange fungal alien world.
  • To make it run on your computer resolution, even on wide resolution screen monitors, paste the code in the commas "DirectDraw=0" in your Alpha Centauri.ini file, just  under [Alpha Centauri] line.
  • Windowed mode is almost impossible, some people runs the game twice, and close one of the applications to make it windowed but not always works.
What I need to know when starting new game:
  • Play with Gaians, they can capture mind worms and isles of the deep.
  • Make forests, all forests, forests are awesome with Tree Farm and Hybrid Forest buildings.
  • Make the Weather Paradigm world wonder ASP, it allows to  rise/lower terrain and drill for rivers and dig Boreholes.
  • Dig Boreholes on squares that are not used by cities to avoid ECO damage and send Crawlers there to get the insane amount of minerals or energy.
  • Explore fast to get more pods
  • Save money to buy critical wonders.
  • Do the population control well.
