Apolyton 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. "The main purpose is that the game has certain imbalances and design flaws, and is good enough for them to be worth fixing; some can be fixed via modding the attached text files, particularly alphax.txt, but some can't, so I'm making it so that they can by adding new variables that can be modded. "It fixes some bugs and adds a lot of new modding options, and will add more in the future.
