    If SMAC was playable with all 14 factions at once this entire game would've been already obsolete at the announcement event for it.

    There's a demo, how about you try that instead of relying on hearsay of idiots.

    Pretty much.

    Also, from some stuff I've read in the SMAC community, SMAC-in-SMAX is coming soonish thanks to Yitzi's newer patches allowing one to disable a lot of in-engine SMAX stuff. That's right folks, soon we will be able to play SMAC with SMAX's modding resources added by Yitzi. Then it will be only a matter of adding Kyrub's patch for the penultimate* Alpha Centauri experience.

    *the ultimate Alpha Centauri experience is when somebody finally figures out when to surpass the faction limit.

    Hey Monaldinho! You alright? Its me, Slaughter from Civilization Fanatics.

    Think you can upload it somewhere else than Game/File Front? It has a inane downloads policy that excludes a lot of countries from downloading - Brazil and China, just to remember two. I use Mega and Mediafire for FODD mod.

    Has there been any progress made on achieving this? So far it's basically the only reason you'd play Beyond Earth, because you can use this mod to replace all of the shit politically correct copy+paste factions in the base game with the more diverse and interesting ones in SMAC/X.

    I figure vanilla Beyond Earth is definitely worse. Both have made a lot of mistakes, both lack features, but while Civ5 at least retained the whole historical kitchen sink flavour, BE is offensively bland, like they didn't even try.

    Is there a list of differences between Conflict on Chiron and Planetfall in English? I've downloaded the mod but don't see a list of changes anywhere. Can I only see it in-game?

    you have no idea...
    civ5 was essential. barebone.
    be is essentially shit, and this expansion makes it worse. one of the new features above all: you can't choose your peace treaty, the computer picks it for you and you can't change it.

    Holy crap! They removed diplomacy. It's not that I ever bothered with it in shit like civV or BE but nw they just axed it. Only options you have now is to change a slider of war-hostile-neutral-cooperation-allied. No pacts, no military access, nothing. Everything was axed and replaced with "agreements" - all of them is like +10% to military unit production, +5% culture. OMG I knew they had no idea how strategy games are ticking but this is so retarded it almost hurts. AI spam you with this agreements in a traditional CivV style.
    Oh, and by the way, to initiate ANY diplomatic agreement you now must spend Diplomatic Capital, which is accumulated by...having diplomatic agreements.

    Well the new fans seem to love the new diplomacy so its gonna be standard from now on.
    Now they only need to implement automated building and combat and they will make the perfect western pachinko game.
    Added with pink hair feminist messages for added inclusiveness.

    That's great! I will be waiting!

    Did I ever send you the civilopedia stuff? I think I lost it on one of my old HDs. A shame, I think you would have liked it. I should try and remake it.

    The slider is basically the same thing, cooperation means military access and alliance guess what is alliance...The game is what it should have been at release, its not alpha centaury but its a good enough 4X now . Its comparable to stardock games with better graphics , soulless but pretty. Agreements range from completely useless to overpowered , like enhancing every trades routes, pretty neat when you build a pacifist trade empire.
    Its a lot better than vanilla game, lot more units, hybrid units ,faction traits , but well 30 euros more for something that should have been included from the beginning, can only recommend it at russian prices.

    Don't bother arguing with the brainwashed Civ5-podpeople.

    As for cvv's question for better games than Civ5. easy: Civ4BTS - CK/EU/Vicky/Hoi continuum - a whole bunch of space 4x games.

    Probably be easier to make a list of 4X games worse than Civ 5.

    Let's see...

    LotR 3
    MoO 3
    Civ BE
    Elemental
    Arguably HoMM 6 and 7
    Probably a bunch of games that have never seen the light of day

    Anything I miss?
