Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri returns with its characters reimagined for Beyond Earth. Play out the tale of the ill-fated UN Colony Mission: Unity as one of twelve unique leaders. Launched many decades before the Seeding, the UNSS Unity was meant to symbolize a new age of cooperation for Earth's nations. Disaster strikes however, when the Unity's crew is awoken from cryosleep to repair a massive hull breach caused by a meteorite impact. Still months from their destination, the massive and diverse crew must contend with survival on a ship never meant to support an active men, a crippled reactor unable stop the ship from over-shooting its destination, and civil war when the ship's Captain, John Garland, is found dead in his quarters. Be prepared to guide these classic characters on the surface of a new alien planet, contend with old adversaries, and encounter new leaders from a future earth who have arrived on their tail.
"The Unity Project" is a compilation mod of my "Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri" mods. It was originally made to celebrate the release of the 7 original factions, redone with all of the lessons I've learned since I started modding. Since then it has been updated with the human factions from "Side Meier's Alien Crossfire" as I completed them.
The mod also features a secret, 13th faction that allows players to explore the "What if?" scenario of the Unity Project's success. How might the story have unfolded if Captain Garland had survived and completed the Unity's journey? Discover how to unlock the faction by exploring the Unity's Civilopedia page and learning more about the late John Garland.

There's a serious issue that affects many sponsor mods with custom leaderscenes. The mods can cause the game to crash to desktop when used in conjunction with the default civs. A current fix is to play the game with the leaderscenes set to minimum. In the meantime, modders are investigating a proper fix. You can do your part by notifying Firaxis of this widespread issue.
