Hi all, I just started an effort to recreate/remaster SMAC (Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri) to let it run on modern systems, and especially to have working, stable, reliable multiplayer. It's still at very early stage, but feel free to subscribe, review, discuss and maybe even participate. I estimate a playable version to come in a month or so.
The idea is to use existing resources and game logic of SMAC (to preserve the feel) while having a modern, multi-threaded, bug-free game client. Once this step is done I will move further and add modding support, better graphics, various online services and more.
Code repository is located at https://github.com/afwbkbc/glsmac , it contains more details, discord link and also some ubuntu-compatible binaries if somebody is too lazy to compile.
It will be nice to have consistent feedback while development goes, to make sure I do everything right
p.s. I also tried to register on alphacentauri2.info but registration confirmation e-mail never comes (tried multiple emails), apparently something is broken there. If somebody here also have account on alphacentauri2.info - could you please contact their admin and tell that registration e-mails are not being sent? Maybe they aren't even aware. Thanks.
