From Alpha Centauri Wiki
Xenofungus or Fungus is a form of plant life native to Alpha Centauri. It has a number of unusual properties which you may discover in the course of play.
Features[edit | edit source]
- Fungus prevents terraforming other than removing xenofungus.
- Fungus impedes movement. Units may have difficulty entering Fungus squares. Increasing your PLANET social engineering rating will alleviate this problem. Building the Xenoempathy Dome improves Fungus movement considerably.
- Fungus has some defensive value when defending against other human or Progenitor factions. Against native life, however, Fungus has negative value, making it easier for it to attack your units.
- Fungus squares can be tapped for resources; the resource level provided by a fungus square is determined by the number of Centauri technologies you have discovered.
