Great news! Now lets hope that whatever they come up with is actually decent - can they catch lightning in a bottle again?

Mead, anyone?

Edit: so I went to Brad Wardell´s @Draginol account, and found this (originally posted 7 June 2020):

When can we expect the first Star Control Mead and Honey to hit the webshop shelves?

I guess the guy that makes youtuber law is not that into bees :)

Although it took way too much time and legal jumbo before they got to that point, at least it didn't dissolve further. It will still take time before I'm willing to involve myself with any of the games, but I'm not irrevocably put off by either. So maybe I still personally think Brad was a wee bit more guilty of the mess than F&P were, but at least it resolved amicably and in the end, it's enough.

I didn't expect things to recover like this at such a late stage, but I'm glad it was resolved like it was nonetheless.
TFB and Stardock were already told to quit the lawsuit last year...

In a sense they only wasted money and fandom fun by carrying on way longer than they should :)

Well, Brad Wardell always said to call and talk directly.
This settlement also notes that this was proposed by Brad Wardellquite a while ago, and now that Fred took him up on this offer, the dispute got settled....

Which definitely shows that Fred and Paul did not take the original offer that seriously, and how this led to a escalation. (But seeing how Brad Wardell offered his "help" to the UQM community and how the paper and the explanation differed from each other, I would've been wary of calling someone and talk directly when he's encroaching on my property).

Honestly... hearing how they settled it gave me hope for the future in general. Just think of this... a legal argument settled by people actually taking the time to talk to eachother like human beings? And ending with both parties satisfied and getting what they want? In this day and age? It's a miracle!
