Re: The Umgah Drone

But how does the Mauler’s cannonball bypass the antimatter cone too? I understand from Quasi’s explanation how it’s feasible to conceive that fusion bolts and spinning blades with a magnetic field can protect the projectile through the antimatter by their physical properties, but unless the shot be...

Re: The Umgah Drone

how come so many things can pass through antimatter? I mean… it’s antimatter for crying out loud! It's antimatter, but it's not a particularly dense clump of it. As such, sufficiently durable objects can pass through before they're destroyed. I'd wager things like fusion blasts wouldn't suffer all ...

Re: The Thraddash Torch

On your question of what is vulnerable to the Torch? Everything. This is because of a very simple reason. The Torch has both high acceleration, speed, maneuverability and range. This means that it can effectively dodge everything that is thrown at it and stay out of range whilst simultaneously, slow...

Re: The Umgah Drone

The Umgah Drone is, ultimately, a high-risk, high-reward vessel. It's best used for the purposes of defeating fast, short-range vessels such as the Skiff and Fury, and is generally quite awful against any ship that can avoid suffering from its antimatter cone (whether this be through shields, pierci...

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

Ain't discussions about how many ships are given maximally prime examples for stuff that should go behind spoiler tags? At least until The Troglodyte used his time portal device to find these minor things out for himself? Not that it really influnces the game... Honestly, the thing is that finding ...

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

4 does seem to be consistent though… I believe the Pkunk, Arilou and ZFP will all hand over 4 ships as well. Maybe the Yehat rebels give 4 too, but I’m not sure, since I only had room to add two Terminators at the time. Speaking of which… I know for sure that the Arilou and Yehat max out at 3. ZFP ...

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

Now that the Dnyarri is safely aboard your ship, why not ask the Umgah for their side of the story? You have the Arilou, and the Dnyarri side.,. It was aaaaaall a big joke. Har. Har. Har. We remote-control talking pet into believing it psychic. Pretended all mind-control. Should see your face. Capt...

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

As hard as I tried, I couldn’t kill the Dnyarri, and it forced me to take him onto the ship, and now the stupid little thing is sitting here next to me, and there’s really nothing I can do about it!… well, except to go back and try again. Captain out. I'm... not so sure that keeping this particular...

Re: anyone care to join me in one vs one sc1 ?

> Make sure host has port forwarded That's probably the step that folks might have trouble with. Unfortunately I can't give a step-by-step guide there, as the process varies from router to router. However, in general terms, what you need to do is: 1. Connect to your router. You can usually do so by...

Re: anyone care to join me in one vs one sc1 ?

Doesn't seem too tricky. Download file. Open. Start emulator. Load game file. Make sure host has port forwarded. Set both sides to player-controlled. Establish connection. Figure out which part of the controls you're supposed to use. Play. Did some research on this back when the file came up here. N...
