  • Alpha Centauri?

    Anyone play it? It was Sid Meier's pseudo-sequel to Civ2... I've been debating whether or not to reinstall it for some late night single player entertainment, but I remembered that this was the first Civ-style multiplayer game that came out after Civ2...

    Dang. I remember AC. Don't think I have it anymore though. Had fun playing MP with a co-worker for some 'extended' lunch breaks. ;) Much fun teaming up against the AI. He did the research and gave me all the tech, I made the military with it and kept him secure. Nice little symbiotic arrangement there. Planet would have been proud. :icon20:

      Do you have the expansion pack? Alien crossfire adds quite a bit to the game.

        I never knew there was multiplayer. Either way the game is laying around here if anyone is interested in MP.

          Yes, I have it. Don't they have a multiplayer gametype where you basically "email" the turns to each other? I wouldn't mind playing a looong game where we do one turn per day. I'm gonna install it and see what's available... It's been a long time...

              OK, I just installed it and it doesn't look like there's an option for the type of play that I was looking for. I think it was called "hot seat" play. I remember playing Civ like that: You'd start a hot seat game (meant for multiple people to play using the same computer) and in between turns, you'd simply save the game, email to the next player, they'd open the saved game and take their turn, save the game, and email it to the next player...

              I hardly ever have time to sit down to an entire game all at once. I was hoping that I could start a game where just one turn a day could be made. I know the game could last weeks or months like that, but that's what I was looking for...

                Play by email / hotseat is provided by the expansion pack. Like you, I thought I remembered it, so I looked it up. If I can find my copy of the game (unlikely) or download it (more likely), I'd be up for some slow gaming goodness.

                  Alright I will check on Ebay or AMazon to see if I can find the expansion. What is it called?

                          Wow, I am shocked to see others still remember this gem. I loved it then and I still love it now.


                          Interested in listening to guitar playing and a good conversation, look for me on TS.
