Re: No Earth game (SC2 Spoilers)

The game's pretty powerful, isn't it...??? Yeah, but I sold the Shofixti, anyway. In the end, curiosity won out; I was wondering what would happen if I did it and I'm probably never going to play a game where it's so advantageous to do it again. You have to keep track of the planet in your head. If...

Re: SC2's Greatest Mysteries (spoilers)

Ah, Atlantis! Interesting... And wanting to eliminate human history for those reasons makes sense... Also, I forgot to mention in my earlier post: Someone mentioned that the Arilou may have been as interested in the Syreen as humans, but I can say that they weren't. After humanity was slave-shielded...

Re: No Earth game (SC2 Spoilers)

Do any of these versions warn you if the planet is just off-screen during combat? I just recovered the Syreen fleet from Ur-Quan territory and on the way there, I think I lost as many crew to collisions with the planet as I did to the Ur-Quan! :P I think you can use F10 or F11 to quit. Or is it F1? ...

Re: Evil Ones vs. Ultimate Evil

The Ultimate Evil lurks just outside of sensor range. The Evil Ones live on Spathiwa. Does that clarify matters? Thanks but no. I realize this, but I also saw an interview where the creators didn't seem to know the difference between them. So when asked if the Ultimate Evil really exists, they thou...

Re: SC2's Greatest Mysteries (spoilers)

I read through this thread and want to share my comments. :) Regarding Mmrnmhrm, (I had to look up the spelling) :P I kind of like the idea of them having been built as some kind of means of getting around the Dnyarri's compulsion, but then, why wouldn't there have been any mention of them by the Ur...

Re: No Earth game (SC2 Spoilers)

...Speaking of, you do know that if you don't like the voices, you can just mute them and play with only the DFOS text, right? Yeah, but the version I observed my brother playing was missing the ending sequence cutscenes. When he flew the flagship up to the Sa-Matra at the end, it immediately cut t...

Re: No Earth game (SC2 Spoilers)

Hmm... I'm not sure what version I downloaded... When I started playing, I tried it with my original copy of the game from the 90's, but it must've gotten corrupted over the years or something, because it started bugging out. :| I know I didn't download the UQM version; I observed my younger brother...

Re: No Earth game (SC2 Spoilers)

It has been done. There was even a patch made so the game wouldn't crash if your first time at the Sol Starbase is when you have the Chmmr take you there. Ooh, I don't know if my version is the patched one. :| I guess I'm going to find out! :P ...I wonder though, if as the Pkunk reincarnate and the...

Re: Progress in Star Control II

I realize this thread is a bit old, but since no one else said it, I just wanted to point out that the Melnorme give you two pieces of information about the Mycon Deep Children. (In the "Information about alien races" list) The first tells you about the nature of the Deep Children, and the second te...

No Earth game (SC2 Spoilers)

Hi all! :) Warning: The following post contains plans for a really absurd game. :P I kind of randomly came across this forum while looking up information about Star Control 2. I've enjoyed the game (and Star Control 1 before it) since I was a little kid and have won the game several times. Recently,...
