    Hmm, I kinda like the thought of certain ideologies/political parties/interest groups such as a military Junta (Power/Conquer), Technocrats (Knowledge/Discover), Empaths (Green/Explore) and Plutocrats/Merchants (Wealth/Build) having a "religious" presence in bases, so you can't just change to any SE Value at whim.

    However can Holy Cities fit in with this? I guess it could for Technocrats, Empaths and Merchants, but I can't really imagine military Junta liking another military Junta spreading its religious/ideological influence in their faction.

    Well, in the case of Power/Conquer, it's not the other faction's junta, it's simply, from exposure, an appreciation of their culture of power. Perhaps their initiations can even have their own Doctrine on the tech tree--in fact, doesn't the Value slider already have its own techs for each?

    As for holy building... not sure how to use it at all with this idea. Or Great People.

    Historical Museums? World War Memorials? Holo-Deck VR suites of course. Not only do you need an equivalent for the Holy Cities (created via Great People in the founding city) but also the happiness inducing buildings that can be constructed more liberally (temples, churches, mosques, cathedrals, etc.).

    I was going to say the same thing, but was hoping someone else would say something more official sounding. ;)

    We're making important progress, caring to use to our advantage some BtS features like unit parts showing up with a promotion. It's a first step toward a well known SMAC feature but it is not achievable in an heartbit (or is this heart beat) .

    Hey, don't reveal too many secrets:p
    Let's just say we have some very grand things planned, though you won't be able to see much of it in our first release, which will be very soon.(I have learned my lesson when it comes to saying dates):crazyeye:

    I want to see now! ;(

    Are you making it exactly like SMAC was, or are you just adapting Civ4's gameplay to it?

    Because I think it'd be great to see SMAC using new features. Psi combat as a promotion.

    I imagine the hardest part would be probe teams.

    We are trying to take the best features of SMAC and the best features of CIV4 plus some news ideas in order to make the best SMAC flavored mod possible.

    They're talking about a unit workshop btw.

    (What? It's not like we're some commercial company trying to create a hype. :p)
