Re: Starting a blind playthrough of Star Control Origins (with videos! No spoilers, please)

Hey Tormuse! I've noticed that you've mentioned some planet-side observations, such as the weird names assigned to robots like "Turret_Critter_Sentry" or similar-looking names, plus you've encountered some heavy stun resistant animals that take like a hundred shots to take down as you watch their he...

Re: Starting a blind playthrough of Star Control Origins (with videos! No spoilers, please)

Hey Tormuse! I bought Star Control Origins and I've been playing it for awhile, but I keep having trouble navigating the lander on planets. Can you share with me your button configuration for the planetary lander?

Re: Starbase Population

A 2000 cap on population makes sense to me. I mean, why would the Ur-Quan station any more than that around Earth? Anybody that followed my playthrough could certainly vouch for the beyond painstaking measures I took to have the most minimum of crew deaths possible, and part of that policy was due t...

Starbase Population

I'm not sure if anybody has ever asked this before but in S2C/UQM, does anybody know if there's an actual cap on the number of crew replacements that can be transferred from the Starbase to the flagship?

Re: Starting a blind playthrough of Star Control Origins (with videos! No spoilers, please)

Yes, yes, very true... Trog the Enigmatic strikes again! in fact, ever since beating the game I've poked about here and there and found many items of interest, and a No Starbase mission seemed so crazy I simply had to check it out. There is no frickin' way I'd ever even get past that first part of h...

Re: Starting a blind playthrough of Star Control Origins (with videos! No spoilers, please)

Touché Tormuse! :D You definitely got me there! :lol: An interesting post-script to my SC2 adventures I'd like to share is after my victory in saving the galaxy from almost certain annigi... I mean annahal... I mean... almost certain defeat, that I went back and downloaded the High-Res version and p...

Re: Starting a blind playthrough of Star Control Origins (with videos! No spoilers, please)

I finished watching your 2nd video and I'm beginning to think I may need to take the exit ramp and stop watching. Don't get me wrong Tormuse! It has nothing to do with you or your video presentations. In fact, I've been thoroughly enjoying them! (although they can be somewhat slow-moving at times, b...

Re: What happens when the Ur-quan leave a region of space? Paul Reiche answers

I can't help but wonder if Paul had that answer concealed inside his brain lore all along, or did he come up with the solution which best fit the persona and stylings of the Ur-Quan once the question was presented? Hmmm....

Re: Starting a blind playthrough of Star Control Origins (with videos! No spoilers, please)

Hey Tormuse! First of all, it's so great to hear from you! :D Also, thanks for sharing your videos, although I've only watched the first one over the weekend. I'm glad that you are so willing to share and we all get to see what you look and sound like!... I've always been a little curious. So far th...
