Re: The official annoucement of the lawsuit settlement was made...

Well, Brad Wardell always said to call and talk directly. This settlement also notes that this was proposed by Brad Wardellquite a while ago, and now that Fred took him up on this offer, the dispute got settled.... Which definitely shows that Fred and Paul did not take the original offer that seriou...

Paul Reiche at The Strong (US national museum of play)

The cleanup of the attic and storages to find the design notes of SC also led to a collection of other design notes Mr. Reiche found. He now donated them to the Museum of PLAY.

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

Once I have auto-aim, I dropped the front cannon. The second slot gives two shots for the price of one in the front slot. Yes, you need slightly more distance, but tat the point in time most enemies have less range than you, so it's preferable anway. Also, you're so fast and maneuvrable by now, the ...

Re: Sequels strife

I'm pretty sure that they already said in interviews that the Mycon were Precursor terraformers. From the 1998 IRC chat with Toys for Bob (Fwiffo is both Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III here): <_Stilgar> <Etherea|> Fwiffo: Were the Mycon in your mind simply the insane fungus rewriting the memories of...

Re: Sequels strife

now it sounds more like 7-8 years. I've got some minor concern about the required "quiet" period. However, this doesn't mean they are unable to work on the project during this time, just likely no major announcements. In my opinion, if it does take 8 years, then it takes 8 years. I agree with these...

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

I actually liked it. It's not as if you'd get to see an explosion develop and recognize the beauty of it. On that distance, you'll have had more than enough unexpected extratime if your eye-nerves have been able to transmit the light to your brain, even more so if your brain was able to transmit the...

Re: Sequels strife

And you may have to find more years, but after the last 25, what are a few more years? Paul and Fred will be changing the name "Ghosts of the Precursors" to something a little less generic -- (come on, you know we can do better!). The precise ‘when’ is unclear, but it is still several years off. [ h...

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

Also, yes we were referring to exactly that option.

Will you discuss this in-character, like saying you accidentally triggered a fail-safe feature in the device, thus making the device far better than before?


I will now go up and remove the spoiler tags relating to this in my posts.
