Happy N7 day everyone!

(NZ time)

Today is as good a day as any to remember that the Mass Effect trilogy is the true successor to Star Control II (in lieu of an actual sequel).

What's going on over at UQM Forum?

Anything we should be concerned about, given the recent bluster from Stardock?

Or is it simply a server switch as it says. It's just been in that situation for some days now.

A step-by-step guide for total dummies (like me) would be really great.

Re: Star Control: Rebirth

Yeah there's no point redoing all the ships. Use ones that have already been done. There are heaps of HD ones around, and a few in 3D am I right? Do we have the whole SC1 set in 3D?

Re: A great person has left us

Oh that's really sad to hear. I always wondered how anyone else would know if someone passed away. In this instance I guess we were lucky that there was a connection with the SC community outside the net melee area.

Re: Mass Effect

I played mass effect for the first time recently. I thought it was outstanding and a worthy spiritual successor to Star Control 2.

Re: Mars by 2023

Some quick comparisons suggest that's way off. That sum is also less than half NASA's annual budget, so if it could be done for that much it would have happened already.[/unfunny realist] NASA probably spends most of its money on boring stuff like satelite maintenance, and perhaps international spa...

Re: Mars by 2023

They reckon it'll cost a mere $6 billion. That's not much more than it would take to make the next Star Control. And a bit of perspective, it's about one percent of the US's annual "defense" budget. Cheap!
