I've been looking through these forums and it seems like most 'game does not work' problems occur at Windows 7 machines. My question is: does SMAC work on windows 7 at all? Without bugs, glitches etc? Because I've been looking forward to finally playing this game after all those years, but I'm not going to buy something that doesn't work.
And two other, kind of 'off-topic' questions:
1) Is it still worth playing SMAC after playing civ4 and 5? I guess it is, even if it's only for the awesome 2D graphics, but I could be mistaken. Are there enough differences gameplay-wise between those games?
2) As far as I've understood it is very likely that GOG will give the expansion for free to owners of SMAC, if it will be 'released' on GOG, because this is usually their policy. Is this correct? (I'm a new GOG user so I wouldn't know)
