New to SMAC
Hello Board,
Just purchased SMAC and Alien Crossfire last night and played for a little bit (It was very late and had to work today)
One word: Awesome!
Mind you I have Civ3 and so far SMAC is better (Not a Civ3 basher..I like Civ3)
Please please direct me to web sites,info,etc etc that can help me to learn more about SMAC.
Thanks very much

Welcome to the few of us that still thrill at the sight of the good Chariman as he guides his human hive towards dominations or the brave Colonel as she guides her militia to victory on the battlefield.

As for sites, I suggest you start at Poly's site here, and go from there.

webpage for SMAC

http://www.firaxis.com/smac/tech.cfm

Another great page

http://guild.ask-klan.net.pl/

The nettwork node is around too, but I can't find a link. Anyone else got a link to it?

Oh and don't forget to check out the AC fiction forum. Lots of exciting stories set in the SMAC/X universe...

Where did you manage to find Alien Crossfire? I'd love to get my hands on a copy at a reasonable price.

You could do a lot worse than getting Velociryx's Strategy Guide.

An early (free) version ( v 3.0) can be had from his website:

(shoot - the url isn't linking - it's bringing up his pop-up ads)

The links are:

http://clik.to/renaissance

then you need to navigate thru:

Discuaaion Forums/S...M...A...C.../Strategy & Tactics/The SMAX Guide (version 3.0)

(it's the 11th thread in the Strategy & Tactics section)

or you can spring $20 and get the v 4.0 published version. there's a link to the publisher at the Spartan Chronicles site:

http://googlie2.tripod.com/spartanchronicles/id10.html

And apparently you can order SMAX from a UK firm and they will ship to N. America!! See:

hmm. Last night when I posted it told me that there was an error and the page couldn't be found. It seems to be working now.

GO TO EBAY

Last time i checked they had Two new copies of Crossfire or Planet pack going for $20, and one used copy for $9.99.

Otherwise buy a MAC, for some reason they are still selling SMAX for the MAC.
