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

At this point, what would he buy with the extra RUs? The only thing left is fuel, or perhaps new escorts as they become available, since he hasn't lost a crew member since Pluto and he's already flying a topped off warship. Yeah, but this is Troglodyte we're talking about; I'm pretty sure he's alre...

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

I always find Ilwrath Avengers annoying to fight because homing weapons don't work when they're cloaked. (Including your Vindicator's ATS modules) ZFP Stingers are actually one of the better ships against them because they fire their shots in a spread, so some of the shots are sure to hit. But my fa...

Pik – “Hey! That’s not fair! I may have something important to contribute.” (blows a big puff of smoke through his blowholes) That's not smoke, that are spores! Erm... We're talking about the springy guy on the right, right? I know the Zoq, the plant-like guy on the left, makes a comment about blow...

Oh, I believe you! And I admire your dedication... or madness? (Or both?) :P

EDIT: Dedadness? or maybe... ooh! Madnication! :D

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

Hey Troglodyte, I know you're avoiding looking up transcripts to avoid accidental spoilers, so I have to ask... Did you type all of that manually? :shock: Huh. I never considered that *jumping in front* might be teleportation. I thought it was more "stopping them from doing what they wanted". What w...

Re: Childrens' play log

The 7-year-old loves getting minerals, but that hasn't really caused any disagreements yet. While digging snow this morning, though, he said he was gathering minerals. He keeps asking if various things are minerals (salt, water, sugar). I love this. Kids are awesome! :D It's cool that you can exper...

I feel like I'm missing something in that last image. What's different about it?

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

Another interesting theory. The idea of telepathy makes a lot of sense to me. This would explain a great many things, not the least of which would be how they are communicating through their "talking pets" (a.k.a. de-sentienced Dnyarri.) Yeah, I forgot to mention that, but that's part of my theory ...

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

(Spoily stuff...) I can't really make my full point without using quotes which are as of yet spoilers though, so I agree that we should put this discussion about the Ur-Quan on the backburner for the time being. Yeah, I have some more comments to make, but they'll have to wait for another time. :)
