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

Do not worry, captain. It's all just business. Unscrupulous, greedy business, perhaps, but do not take it personally. After all, it's all in the name of profit margins, and as any Druuge worth their salt would tell you, what in life is more important than a good profit margin? Now, you may not neces...

Re: Why can't there be PEACE?? (legal stuff)

Sure it would be nice. The problem is, either the copyright is with F&P (as it should be), or it's not. If it is F&P's, starbuck has a problem because they have a stake in Origins saying otherwise. If it isn't, F&P have lost their property. Either way, someone loses, and neither side wants to be the...

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

That being said, this is excellent evidence for just why they swiftly stopped crewing Penetrators with human crew during the Ur-Quan Slave War. Now, if Talana wasn't a factor, this could pose more of a risk than it currently does.

Re: Sequels strife

If Stardock hadn't gotten greedy, none of this would have happened. Serves them right.

Re: Ideas for playthrough?

Like if you're battling either of the Ur-Quan and the fight has been going on for longer than a minute. There would have to be criteria that the ship is far enough away. No sane Spathi is suicidal enough to initiate warp maneuvers whilst the enemy is in firing range. I'd think it better if they jus...

Re: Ideas for playthrough?

I wonder what would make a good added-difficulty mod - not just voluntary restrictions - without moving things around on the map, which is complicated. Slightly-slower hyperspace travel? Quintuple the cost of a portal-spawning? Make the portal spawn somewhere vaguely in front of you, and then you n...

Re: Writing Prompt: An Eluder crewed by 29 Spathi and 1 Ilwrath

In all honesty, I don't think I'll have time to write a response for this prompt. However, if I would have had time, this is the concept I had in mind, expressed in crude terms: It is shortly before the Ur-Quan subjugation of the Spathi. Aboard the Black Spathi Eluder (should technically be Discrimi...

Re: Simply fan ideas

Fan races isn't really something I consider an apt approach. Often, it can end badly, and the Kohr-Ah tend to exterminate those ones very rapidly at any rate. Quite frankly, I don't blame them. What I will gladly discuss is ship design, however. There are countless ways to make a ship, and whilst ma...

Re: The Lurg Prawn (Project 6014)

The prawn's projectile has Druuge-like range, actually. It's not as fast, and it weaves around, but it can tag things pretty far away from it. It may have a fair max range, but I was talking more about effective range. A slow projectile with long range is fairly easy for most ships to avoid, so aft...
