I've never been much into Alpha Centauri, but always loved Civ-style games, regardless of background. This one in scifi setting looks really nice.

There's only one visual thing I didn't like in the vid: the infantry appears to be moving and fighting a bit too much in "line infantry" style. Maybe have less guys per unit who act with more variety, and in a more open formation - that would fit more to modern or even futuristic combat.

But that's only a minor issue of course, otherwise I'm really impressed, and thinking of getting this when it's out :)

hi guys,
first impressions of the BETA.
Imperial, Medium world, Random shape, Med Aggressiveness, Standard Pace.

cinematography good standard and leads into game nicely. or use escape to exit, also good.
setting up new colony very Civ5 like.
Movement similarly Civ5
Research, cannot seem to set a chain of research, have to do an new research if you open up to the full chain.
custom worlds, good.

current bads after 15 Mins.. slow growth, slow moves and very brutal combat. You seem to either win or lose and are die, no small losses, standoffs etc, keeping you alive but open to another unit.

so far so good, will have a proper hour session later and expand on thoughts.
