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

I agree, SC2 did all of that better, but then, todays abilities of game creators to tell stories are much closer to endless than back then FF and PR had. So, expectations are blown nowadays. For fun I tried once to fly around in Kzer-Za and Kohr-Ah space and kill as many Ur-Quan as I could. And it w...

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

Well, if this is the end of the game, then I guess it's time to give my final thoughts about it. Star Control Origins overall does a very good job of capturing the look and feel of Star Control 2, particularly with the sense of humour, the characterisation and diversity of the alien races, and the ...

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

The StarBase side objectives are that, just side objectives.
They are not related to the main plot, besides being triggered by them.

IIRC, they've been added to the game later, in DLCs, so that the main plot elements of the DLC don't feel as rip-offs, and provide more playstuff....

Re: Star Control Origins Discussion (potential spoilers)

I aliens come into our Solar System, do you believe anyone else than Diplomats will take up first contact. As the aliens are non-aggressive towards Earth, why is no diplomat on board to perform the first contact? But later you also have other aliens in the Solar System, and no other ship is availabl...

Re: Star Control Origins Discussion (potential spoilers)

The game does indeed look and feel very promising. The "lander landing" mini game... is... hmm... a nice idea, but implementation could use a Mael-Num/Melnorme automatization upgrade... The planet is... too small/too curved. Imlikemthat there's continuity from watching upwards from the planet and se...

UQM2 development tools published

I presume the lore is being worked hard on, but won't be hinted at.
As that will be the selling point.

The melee is for the fans.

Re: Starbase Population

To quote a humorous passge of the Ultronomicon: When you've recruited 1,000 crew or more (minus the amount you've returned), the crew cost is raised by 2 RUs. If the total later comes below 1000 (by returning crew), the crew cost goes back down by 2. There is no actual limit to the amount of crew yo...

Twitch developer's stream: "best of"

The nearly weekly streams are only sparsely interesting for the non-developers, but they made a highlights video: Some day I won’t procrastinate so much, but I keep putting it off.
