Re: Project 6014 Demo 0.2.1 released!

The demo has Lurg, VUX, Slylandro, Orz, and Yehat/Pkunk voices, and none of the others. So, to find out if it's working, talk to one of those races.

Re: Star Control and pop culture!

hhyyyyperspaaaace! True, the interstellar travel in Babylon 5 is very similar to SCII's. Oh before I forget, Mass Effect is basically a spiritual successor to Star Control. I've heard that before, but I've never played it. How exactly is it similar? I was under the impression that it was more like ...

Re: Star Control and pop culture!

I don't think that Star Control has been popular enough to influence subsequent popular culture very much, but Star Control itself has many references and homages to previous works. For example, the Pierson's Puppeteers from Larry Niven's novels are psychologically very similar to the Spathi, and ar...

Re: Ur-Quan Masters HD Alpha 1

Great then, I'll make some bug reports once I finish the game. It's mostly cases of low-res graphics and text showing instead of high-res, but I didn't see my exact examples in the bug database. I must say, though, this is an excellent product. The game looks great, and it's been completely stable....

Re: Project 6014 Demo 0.2.1 released!

Just one question about the story- In the intro, it shows that the New Alliance encases the battle thrall races in slave shields. Not to be a critic, but this seems a little... cruel and draconian, and rather un-Alliance-like. Is there more to the situation than we (the public) know yet, making it ...

Re: Questions about Star Control 3 gameplay

You're also carrying around more resources than there are on the entire planet :? `Mate, you look like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders. You're only trying to save the galaxy!' Are the colonies supposed to stop producing resources at some point? Mine never seemed to stop. They alw...

You can browse through every issue (including the already solved ones) by selecting "All issues" in the "Search" drop-down menu on the issues page. You probably don't want to click on every item to see their contents as there are currently 237 of them :geek: . But do take a quick look at the headli...

Re: Questions about Star Control 3 gameplay

On the plus side, I really liked the whole "sentient plague" idea with the Xchagger. I also thought that having the Precursors de-evolve themselves was a neat idea, even if it wasn't what TFB originally had planned. Incidentally, I was just looking, and noticed that I happen to have literally over a...

Re: Ur-Quan Masters HD Alpha 1

I have some bugs to report (mostly minor graphical glitches), and I was wondering what the proper way to go about it should be. On the Google bug report page, should I make each bug its own entry, or should I put them all on the same entry? Or should I maybe put all the similar ones in one entry, an...
