Re: Challenge been done yet?

I can't land on the moon. I don't have enough crew because I sold my crew pod to the melnorme. I had to reload a past save and put 1 guy in my crew pod so that I could sell my ion bolt gun to the melnorme instead.

Right now my flagship is tricked out and it should be smooth sailing from here.

Re: Challenge been done yet?

I don't know if you can make it all the way to zeta sextantis without the Melnorme scalping your lander. It might be too far away. In any case, Eta Vulpeculae is already on the way there, and my main worry is just doing it as fast as possible because my ship is a slug right now. EDIT: finally made i...

Re: Challenge been done yet?

Yes.

Especially since Eta Vulpeculae II is on the way and provides you with barely enough biounits to make it to Beta Copernicus without the Melnorme scalping your planet lander.

Re: Challenge been done yet?

My first thought was to go to Gamma Vulpeculae I, because it has one radioactive and the Orz will let you land there. I allied with Fwiffo, added crew to his ship, and set off for the Vulpeculae constellation. After a bit of finnegaling, I managed to sell both of my turning jets and both of my thrus...

Re: Challenge been done yet?

I'm sure there's a planet with both radioactives and an energy signature. This might be harder than I thought. Going to test this out. Will let you guys know how it goes.

Re: Challenge been done yet?

If zapsats count as point defense it would be easier.. their laser is certainly "point-defense-like"

i thought of a new challenge: beat the game without landing on planets without an energy signature

I did it the first time through. Never played it again.

Still, it's not a bad game. Just pretty easy to break.

Re: Live Star Control tournament in Texas

Out of curiousity, why were the Thraddash banned? Thraddash afterburner can get the ship out of harm's way and it's weapon is moderate range, meaning the pilot will speed in, try to hit the opponent and speed away. This makes extremely long and boring battles both to participants and audience. This...

Re: Lukipela's gambling experiment

Yeah, that's the thing I don't like about gambling. In order to succeed at it you've got to treat it like a job. I don't think I've got what it takes to become a gambler, I'm a slave to my emotions. That's why I'm studying to do something like computer programming. No emotions are necessary.
