Alpha Centauri Civilizations

In 1 collection by framedarchitecture
Alpha Centauri
8 items
Choose from 7 Civilizations drawn from the futuristic Alpha Centauri game.

Each faction has unique units and buildings, and traits that reflect their ideological inclinations. Almost all the uniques are activated post-Renaissance, so this is an ideal mod to use with advanced start options.

The Lord's Believers (Sister Miriam Godwinson)
* Trait: Promised Land [Expansion/Religion]
* Building: Conclave (Public School)
* Unit: Fanatic (Great War Infantry)
The Spartan Federation (Colonel Corazón Santiago)
* Trait: Will to Power [Conquest]
* Building: Command Center (Military Base)
* Unit: Hippeis (Paratrooper)
Morgan Industries (Nwabudike Morgan)
* Trait: Profit Motive [Economy]
* Building: Assembly Plant (Factory)
* Building: Energy Bank (Stock Exchange)
Gaia's Stepdaughters (Lady Deirdre Skye)
* Trait: Friend of Planet [Nature/Culture]
* Building: Hydroponics Lab
* Improvement: Eco-Preserve
* Unit: Ecologist (Great Scientist)
The Human Hive (Chairman Sheng-Ji Yang)
* Trait: Police State [Defense/Production]
* Building: Perimeter Defense (Walls)
* Unit: Hover Tank (Tank)
University of Planet (Academician Prokhor Zakharov)
* Trait: Matrix of Minds [Science]
* Building: Network Node
* Building: Bio Lab (University)
* Unit: Needlejet (Bomber)
Peacekeeping Forces (Commissioner Pravin Lal)
Trait: Peace through Diplomacy [Defense/Influence]
* Building: Hab Headquarters (Broadcast Tower)
* Unit: Troopfoil (Mobile SAM)

Requirements and Compatibility
* Gods & Kings Expansion required, Brave New World Expansion optional.
* This mod assumes there have been few changes to the base tech tree, buildings and units. Playing with mods that significantly alter these aspects of the game may cause conflicts.

How do I use this?
* See this guide.

Why doesn’t the mod show up in the mods selection list?
*Best fix:
1. Navigate to C:\Users\Username\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5\MODS
2. Create a new file in MODS called Alpha Centauri Civs and move the alpha centauri civilizations (v.1).civ5mod file to it.
3. Right click the alpha centauri civilizations (v.1).civ5mod file and rename it to alpha centauri civilizations (v.1).zip
4. Unzip the file into the Alpha Centauri Civs folder.

How do I use this with a Mac?

Interesting concept, with "The Human Hive" but there's something strange about that particular race.

#1: You are forced to have the Perimeter Defense, when a city is created, bit... It will give you a -3 maintenance. That means it will be difficult to both scout and defend, early in the game.
#2: There's something strange about the +happy. Regardless of wether you have a unit in your city or not, you still get two green(!) -2 happy pr. city.
#3: The Capital ignores negative (-)happy, and continues to grow/produce normally. Had -16 happy, but no cutbacks in the capital. Did in other cities though.
#4: Spartans and Hive got the same color. Intended? (or is it just my screen?).

I heartily agree with Logica.

Lemme throw this out thereL As a long time fan of SMAC/X and as one who really misses that game and expansion, I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to see a mod that practically reworks Civ 5 and/or Beyond Earth into what is effectively an updated, adapted, and reborn SMAC/X. I have no idea if the available modding powers can make that possible, but if it is, I bet you it will be popular.

I have played and tried this mod for the last year and these civs ALWAYS make it into any of my 21 Civ game line ups. they are each very unpredictable, very intelligent and each have thier own Agenda.. some are hnorable others not so much but they make for a GREAT GAME.. Very well done. my Compliments to the author. You Are a god and King of Mods. 2 thumbs up!

Cool mod. Wish you had used the original portraits.

University is too good. They build 90% of all the wonders. No one could do a thing to them.

Aww, no Cybernetic Consciousness? Alas I shall have to pass this mod by. Aki Zeta-5 would have it no other way :P

@The Gunslinging Gringo That sounds interesting (though I am usually averse to making huge mod files!). You could leave a message on these mods main discussion thread here []. Best, FA

I have access to the music files of the versions of the civs from the Civ4 Planetfall mod. If you know how to add in custom music themes for these civs i'd be happy to message them to you
