Well, as the title says: I have finaly been blessed with ownership of Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri. [dance] [dance] Now, for the point of the thread: Being new to the game, I have a few semi-detailed questions to get out of the way: 1) Firstly, I intend to wipe out all life native to Planet. To Hell with ecology, this world is mine now and I don't care how many mindworm boils start crawling out of the fungus, I will not be stoped. What's the best way to go about acieving this goal while playing as the university? 2) Is adjusting the slieders (energy/labs/entertainment) realy worth it when you take into account the penalties? Also, what are those penalties? 3) Which landmarks do you considder to be most usefull? (Ie Garland Crater, Uranium Flats, Ect.) 4) I've only played a few hours and I already hate Yang. Would it be more painfull for him if I burned his cities to the ground, gassed his citizens, Stapled my new subjects, or just plain P-bust him?
