What's news?

Ahh, vague omens and mysterious portents. Tangled webs of fate intertwined with the branches of destiny, blown by the capricious winds of happenstance. News, news....uh, actually there is some news!

  Groombridge Log available in stores!

Greetings Hunams!

Exciting news for Tiberian our resident published author, his book Groombridge Log is now available from a variety of sources!, both as a Printed book (like the one were giving away for our contest) and as an eBook. I think it is a big achievement for him or any of us Star Control fans here.
I invite you to go take a look and purchase a copy to support one of our own! and at the very least I suggest dropping him a friendly congrats for his hard work.

http://goo.gl/UwYGj9 - From Amazon
https://goo.gl/8BMWUm - For us canucks - Chapters/Indigo
It's also available through Google Books and the Apple iBook's, (and likely several others stores too)

As a personal note to Tiberian I'd like to say -
"Congrats! on getting your booked finished (not a small feat around here) , produced, and now distributed & sold throughout the world, well done!. Also my public apologies for missing your PM on this, sorry you had to chase me!"

Cheers fellow *Happy Campers* and remember feel free to share any news you might have.

  The Contest of Now and Almost for Never!

It's finally contest time folks as I've finally gotten off my butt and made it happen

So Here's the details.

I'll be accepting submissions for Star Control fan "content", I use the word Content as it was difficult to simply say art, some want to do music for instance. So if your not sure your submission will or would fall under "content" simply ask. Submission deadline will be May 30th - just over a month away. ill host the submissions on a public google drive, unless otherwise hosted. Voting will start June 1 and close on June 15th* and winner will be announced soon after. *this date maybe extended if voter turn out is low. I've hosted the poll on a 3rd party website to allow more control and so that non forum members are able to vote as well, so that means you lurkers. Now lastly if you didn't know, the prize is some fan content it's self, but not just any fan content, a sealed copy of our own Tiberian's book, Groombridge Log. I look forward to some no doubt excellent submissions, cheers Hunams!

To Summarize-

Sealed copy of Groombridge Log by Tiberian

Submission deadline Extended: TBD

Voting :TBD

  Star Swarm Stress Test - The Nitrous Game Engine

This is somewhat directly related to the new Star Control game Stardock is working on, it's actually been out for awhile, so many of you may already know. On steam there is a "utility" called Star Swarm Stress Test, it's a tech demo of the Nitrous game engine.. which if you missed it will be powering the new Star Control game. It also shows off DX11 and Mantle if you can benefit with hardware that handles it.

So if your curious about how powerful the engine for the new SC game will be and your on steam go check it out.

Remember if you have any news that's SC related in anyway please feel free to share it.

Cheers Hunams,

  The Future?

Greetings Hunams, I bid you welcome in this the year 2015.
As you may have noticed the site has grown rather stagnant, so I say to you what would you as the visitors to this site like to see? what changes would you make?

And yes, I will get the contest going as promised, I've been *busy* *dancing* and I blame the Zebranky too while I'm at it.

  Contest time Hunams of the world!

It's contest time Hunams! but what contest might we be having?

That's where you come in, it's been sometime since we had a contest around these parts, so I thought we'd open it up to everyone and make choosing the contest a contest in it's self!

So Send in your suggestions and I'll add it to a Poll

I'll start off with a few, I'll run the poll for 10 days so get your suggestions and votes in! and to make it more interesting you can pick 2 options and you can change your vote as options are added.
I should also note there is a wonderful prize were going to give away but more on that later ;)

NOTE: Poll is not displayed on the news page you must enter the forum to vote and view
