Re: The Thraddash Torch

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Among PvP players, "Torch" is practically a curse word, and it's banned from most serious matches. It's an extreme pain to fight since it can just delay forever whilst slowly chippin...

Re: The Umgah Drone

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Also, please stop with the bad jokes. They're terrible.

The Thraddash Torch

What do folks around here think about the Thraddash Torch? I’ve recently discovered in my game (which I haven’t finished quite yet) you can actually build one of these bad boys once you convince the Thraddash how mighty and tough you are… provided you don’t get caught stealing anything from them lat...

Re: The Umgah Drone

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- There also weren’t very good Kohr-Ah jokes on file either, so I went with the next best thing… Worm jokes! Enjoy! What kind of worms make the best carpenters? Inch Worms (and measuri...

Re: The Umgah Drone

Ultimately, the tactic, as you may gather already, is to zip backwards behind the foe, and then take advantage of the position to cone them in the back. It's really just a matter of practice to get the method right, knowing just when to release and just how to aim to end up in the right place. Agre...

The Umgah Drone

What do you think of the Umgah Drone? And there’s no need for pulling punches when it comes to critiquing this crazy ship, who’s dreadful antimatter cone of rainbow colors and backward zipping motion serve to help demonstrate the deadly yet whimsical approach of the Umgah as a whole. I’ll admit I’ve...

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? Now, he's already seen the encounters related to the ships we discuss and going back to figure out the exact number is little more than meaningless tedium regardless of what littl...

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

I went back to an earlier save, which was when I went Umgah homeworld to encounter the Dnyarri for the first time and allowed the 10th brainwashed Umgah to destroy my fleet. Then, I went back, zipped through the dialogue, obtained Talking Pet, went back again and zipped through the ‘Great Hero/Enemy...

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

In answer to your earlier question: The Umgah will fill every available slot in your fleet with a Drone before they attack. How courteous! Interesting. I may have to go back in time and check that one out for myself! (Meanwhile…) ---------------------------------------------------------------------...
