Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

(Go buy Star Control: Origins today!) <-- shameless plug Wait, do you actually like SC:O? Or are you just reflexively plugging it because it's more Star Control? Just to clarify, there has been a massive legal battle raging for the last couple of years between Stardock (the company making SC:O) and...

Not quite an insta-kill; 5 shots doing 6 damage each is 30 damage, and Kzer-Za/Khor-Ah ships each have 42 crew.
Right you are. Strange, I could have sworn I remembered one-shotting Ur-Quan in that configuration. Clearly, it's time for me to replay the game again.

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

This is what I consider the beefiest of beefcake configurations while still using at least one of every module (gotta do those element sampling records!). From my perspective, I have only one immediate and paramount goal when entering battle (especially when you account for my crew expenditure allo...

the new-and-improved Vindicator: Notwithstanding the Commander's opinion, I think that you will find that configuration to have severe power shortages. A tip on how your ship's energy regeneration is calculated: Dynamos (to a max of 3) make your energy regeneration trigger more often, while furnace...

Re: Sequels strife

Question. P&F have no access to SC3 copyrights right? What about story elements that cross over? Unless the settlement changed things, P&F own the parts of SC3 that are derived from SC2, which would include such "cross over" elements. I'm pretty sure that they already said in interviews that the My...

Re: Sequels strife

Is "Frungy Games inc." directly Paul and Fred? I think this document is in parallel legal plane to the sequels and copyrights thing. It was a company started by Paul and Fred during the suit, with the intention of giving it their IP and trying to substitute it into the suit in their place. That gam...

Re: Sequels strife

A document filed at the Trademark Appeals Board today indicates that the parties have reached a settlement. Terms are not yet known, other than that P&F are no longer opposing the "Star Control" mark.

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

If you guys are referring to wondering whether or not I ever actually activated the Utwig Bomb… of course I did!… but not before making the necessary precaution of saving my save game file to a separate location prior… I'm curious to see how you'll explain this, as your time portal system can't hel...

Re: Sequels strife

That’s basically the agreement P&F offered last year. I’d hope Stardock would take a bigger hit now that they’ve seen they’re losing this case. We don't know anything with certainty about who is winning or losing; the Court's rulings so far have all been procedural, and never reached the merits of ...
