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

I apologize for having forgotten, that the Melnorme do not tell you the location. (But then finally something the programmers did not give away in their in-game hint system.) I thought someone could give you the location once you're down on that track. And since the Melnorme basically know and sell...

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

...I found it interesting you tried to avoid the probe. Cashing the high-value ressources is a simple matter of minutes, with little to no risk. That would be more accurate if you said "seconds" instead of "minutes" and just said "no risk." Using the destruct code instantly gives you the same resou...

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

The one who greeted us was named Content to Hover... Oh... I feel dumb; all these years and I didn't realize that was his name! :o I just figured he was using the word "hover" the way we would use "stand" (ie, I stand here as a speaker) and that he's describing himself as content because he's just ...

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

There could even be some Arilou influence going on there; I'm just not sure to what extent that would be… but it really couldn't be of pure coincidence that the Syreen and sirens could have such parallel equivalence without some context of outside involvement, and I've noticed how that usually leav...

Funny... I found myself reading Zelnick's lines in an English accent, but I somehow sensed that he was French. ;)

Re: "Hyperspace coordinates 100 : 50"?

Please amend your usericon to something that doesn't spoil the look of the flagship in-game for me. Thanks! I'm sure you're joking, but I'm gonna point out anyway that the ship graphic is present in everyone's posts, including yours, and it lights up whenever that user is logged in. As for spoilers...

Re: "Hyperspace coordinates 100 : 50"?

It sounds like you didn't get a chance to actually read what Commander Hayes said, so here's a transcript: We have detected a minute but measurable disturbance in the InterSpace fabric at approximate TrueSpace coordinate 100:50. Our scientists speculate that this disturbance may be caused by many th...

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

However, as one can see, if you compare both device screens then you'll see that I indeed still have all 3 egg cases; apparently Commander Talana only has a visual inspection when they're revealed to her by me… I mean, Captain Zelnick. I was just about to say that... Even if you have just one when ...

Gosh darn it! I wanted to see Trog's reaction when he noticed that on his own.

Is it really a "hint" if you hand him the answer? :roll:
