Default Re: How is GURPS Alpha Centauri.

Figured I should actually post on the actual topic of the thread, rather than just beating my head against the wall. :-)

Alpha Centauri is a great book for worldbuilding. It really takes the options provided in the game, like the social choices and the factions, and tells you what they mean in GURPS, both in terms of world details, and for characters. My brother ran an Alpha Centauri game, and we had great fun building the factions. We gave each faction its default preferred social choice, but then went deliberately for the most divergent choices from their typical portrayal for the other options. We ended up with Yang and Dierdre as the villains, with Dierdre being this crazy psycho-psychic, convinced it was her destiny to dominate both human and Planet minds.
