Agreed. Trog! Don't read Maloo Oture's post until they have a chance to spoiler tag it!

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

Ooh, I know what they remind me of! The Yorps from Commander Keen! :D This brings up an interesting point. Do you actually capture the organism? Or are you just subduing it until you've got the data. The Melnorme only want "biological data ." So if you're capturing the poor things, what do the melno...

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

...but the quick but harmless green bipeds only take 2 shots but fill up the Lander's capacity quickly; they are obviously biologically more complex. Ah yes, I love those little green guys! :D So much valuable bio data; should get a good price for the Melnorme. :) I guess they must have more densel...

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

I'd also like to add my voice to the chorus saying that it's for the best that you forego your cryogenic mission... I don't wish to cheat, but this doesn't seem like cheating to me. I would still be playing within acceptable game parameters. Did nobody else consider doing what I was proposing the fi...

Re: IDF Reasearch Has Begun Indeed

I was able to find a spoiler-free printable version of the map, which I was able to crop and print out on 4 seperate sheets of paper, which I lined up, taped, and colored in the stars with markers, along with several other smaller maps as well. This way I can chart my flight path and also use as a ...

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

If it's not too much trouble, could somebody post the actual quote? Here ya go: How nice to see you again, Captain. Before we go on, I have a small announcement. As you may know, in our travels throughout the galaxy we Melnorme have found many strange and interesting alien artifacts. One of these d...

Re: Fwiffo & the StarRunner

(Incoming analysis of SC1 ships) :) I've always felt that the traditional Hierarchy ships from SC1 suffer from a lack of maneuverability. The Spathi Eluder is the only ship they have that is naturally fast. (Not including speed from special abilities like the Umgah's backward zipping or the Androsyn...

Ah, yes, I remember. He advises you that if you want to do any business with the Melnorme, you should do it before February, 2159, because they'll be leaving this sector at that time to avoid whatever unpleasantness would destroy the metachron.

I grew up on the DOS version and I don't know what dialogue you're talking about. Nothing seems amiss in Troglodyte's description; is there some joke that I'm missing?

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

I hope you'll forgive this OOC post; I just wanted to say that I'm enjoying this thread! :D It's great to see a newcomer to the game with such enthusiasm for it; it makes me want to play it again. :) A couple of tips, if you don't mind: (no spoilers) I don't know if you're aware, but each time you s...
