    Hey Guys,

    I am gathering all of the files together to see where we stand. I am going to list what I think is finished:

    Terrain1.gif
    Terrain2.gif
    Units.gif
    Rules.txt
    Title.gif

    Issues to resolve:

    Game.txt needs to be reworked and has "high priority"
    Menu.txt needs to be reworked but has "low priority"
    Events.txt needs to be rewritten
    Icons.gif unfinished "insufficient graphics available at this time"
    People.gif unfinished "insufficient graphics available at this time"
    lables.txt needs to be reworked but has "low priority"

    I will reiterate that this project is still alive. It has undergone numerous changes but will continue.

    Andrew,

    If you are able to send me an email this week, let's get some more things rolling. Just need to know what your schedule is...

    By the way, finished writing the Master's Thesis...

    Cheers,

    CivPartisan

    Any reason why this thread is a sticky?

    1. It's just another mod, amongst many.
    2. It's been dead for half a decade.

    Ahh man what a friggin tragedy! I literally just posted elsewhere yesterday about how I'd rescued John Mavin's Alpha C scenario which had 'some' SMAC graphics but that I would have loved to have found and played a full Alpha Centauri scenario for Civ2 MGE or ToT using imported SMAC graphics and now I find this.. it did exist!!! but.. it.. did.. not.. get.. finished.. urgh.. lol

    Download in the OP still works and as you can see below my testing shows that what was there was already pretty good.. just no units, buildings, techs and rule changes sadly.

    Can see from Andrew's picture earlier in this thread that he did some cool city screen work, more icon work and had the units & buildings implemented...



    And I can see from John Valez @CivPartisan 's final post that he at least had a copy of the finished unit and rules file and maybe a more complete icons file too.
    Andrew is long gone but John V was only here a few months ago so I hope he comes back as maybe we can twist his arm into releasing those final unfinished files as their dream of a perfect simulated SMAC experience in Civ2 is dead but what they got done was more than enough for a fun SMAC themed Civ2 scenario. I've already Pm'd him about some other stuff so I'll message him about this too lol!

    If all else fails then.. sigh.. well I've already polished up and released (or am about to release) a few other old long lost unfinished projects on here that I cared about enough to finish for them so maybe I could do something quick and dirty with this one too. Eg I take this projects terrain, map and icons and combine it with John Mavin's rescued Alpha Centauri scenario (which has techs, buildings and units). Replace his unit graphics with smac equivalents (thankfully there's a SMAC in Civ2 cells units collection file still attached to one of Andrews posts). Then we'd have something that's better than nothing.. I'm not going to promise anything as I'm buried in so much other unfinished stuff but I'll have a think about it!
