    I have a few of questions if anyone can help:

    1. is there a patch or fix that will force SMACX to show you all available technologies when you are choosing the next tech to research? I swear it's like the game reads my mind and hides the tech I want to research next for a few turns even though I have researched the prerequisite techs.

    2. is it possible to mod existing secret projects to give different results? For example, make the project give a different facility at every base than the one it originally gave.

    3. can you create brand new secret projects? If so, is there a tutorial for doing it?

    I apologize if all this is covered in some existing threads. I tried doing a search and didn't have any luck.

    Thanks for any responses.

    Hi, welcome to the Forum!
    I hope you are still looking for answers.

    1. You can set the game settings to "always show the research goal" from the new game's menu settings.
    2. Probably not as it would require changing core game files. I know the same has been a problem for Civ 2 scenarios and Civ 2 dates from the same era as SMAC.
    3. See answer to 2 :)

    Don't hesitate to ask more or check out the existing mods section.
