Re: The official annoucement of the lawsuit settlement was made...

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

Re: Let's talk about Star Control 3.....

I loved the mods in SC1. You could make some seriously busted ships with them. A VUX with decent thrust and turning is pretty nasty, but a Yehat with a couple dynamo upgrades was just unbeatable.

Re: Games other than Star Control

Interesting. I'm fine to back a game but don't think I'd ever invest. Seems chancy. In the long interim before Phoenix Point's arrival, I am playing the Final Modpack for the original UFO: Enemy Unknown. It really adds a lot of cool shit to the base game. A bit of item clutter but overall I think it...

Re: Where are you heading?

How did it pan out?

I don't commute but I do a lot of mindless number crunching at work and podcasts are my saviour. Would go absolutely mad without them.

Re: Games other than Star Control

I'm super excited about the forthcoming Phoenix Point. Cthulhu-ish XCOM thing from the designer of the original. They were some of my faves and Gollop seems pretty ambitious with a complex strategy layer as well as the tactical turn-based combat. https://phoenixpoint.info/ First that, and now Fred a...

My goodness. Well, I'm excited. Could they Kickstart (or otherwise crowdfund) it?

Re: Sequels strife

Drama! In our own tiny corner of the internet. I'm not sure I'm a fan. F&P have been strongly convinced for a long time that they fully own Star Control 1/2 and have rights to all future products in the universe (including non-game), with the exception of the name "Star Control." This is something t...

Re: Reddit noticed us

Good to see that other people have fond memories of the game, even if they have joined a terrible forum like reddit instead of this bustling hive of starcontrollery.
