Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically:

- Is Amazons & Aliens any different from Alien Nations?

- Find a way to convert the game graphics. BMS script to unpack the .gd archives: http://aluigi.altervista.org/bms/alien_nations.bms

Alien Nations is a PC strategy game where three factions battle it out to see who can build a nation and crush all the others.

Regional Differences

Alien Nations got censored to remove any reference to drugs or nudity.

Resources

A resource was renamed, and another one was replaced entirely.

Amazons

Most of the Amazons are topless in Die Völker. But, of course, a tiny amount of skin colored pixels is far too sexy, so they received bikini tops for Alien Nations.

Smoking Sajiki

In Die Völker, the Sajiki on the nation selection screen smokes a cigarillo. In Alien Nations, he wonders where his cigarillo went. The Sajiki ending reflects this change.

Sajiki vs. Sajkhi

This one is weird. For some unknown reason, the Sajiki nation was renamed to Sajkhi, but only in-game. Everywhere else, they are still referred to by their original name, including the manual, the official website[1], the sequel[2], and this TCRF article.
