    After nearly 20 iterations in slightly over a year, Yitzi's .exe patch for Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire, the Alpha Centauri expansion, has become a must-have for many SMACers.

    Yitzi said the project, incorporating previous patching from scient and kyrub, arose from a desire to better balance AC gameplay.
    He got involved for the same reasons all modders mod.
    For a changelog of the patch: http://alphacentauri2.info/wiki/New_alphax_variables_in_Yitzi's_patch

    Plans for the future of Yitzi's patch are extensive.
    The latest version of the patch (now v.3.4) can be dowloaded here:

    Anyone know if this includes a fix to the probe rating overflow bug?

    I wanted to add that Yitzi's patch includes two main features: bug fixes and game-play enhancements. All of the game-play enhancements are optional. You can choose whether or not to include them in your own games. If all you are looking for is bug fixes, you can install the patch and not enable the non-bug fix changes.

    Huh, cool. I've been playing Loki Entertainment's Linux version since forever. I guess it's time to reboot or fire up Wine the next time I play, some of these variant rules do look worth trying out.

    A very remarkable service to the SMAX community from Yitzi, Kyrub, and Scient. Astounding, really.

    The links here don't work, everything at that URL gives the error "Check to make sure $wgSMFPath is correctly set in LocalSettings.php!".

    alphacentauri2 has been unavailable for several hours. I assume the condition is temporary. If it's not back up by Monday (Nov. 3), I'll inquire.
