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

Ah, the Utwig. As others have mentioned, I always imagined their lines read in solemn, dignified resignation of their fate. Suffice to say, that was back when I was playing the DOS version, which had no voiceovers. The voice actor clearly took a different approach to their line readings. It's made t...

Re: HG101 writeup

Like I said, not totally factually accurate. A lot of the statements you could dispute the legitimacy of come from a place of having clearly played and most likely finished the games, but not really gone into huge depth with them like those of us in the fandom have. So it makes sense that first impr...

HG101 writeup

So, at long last, the folks over at Hardcore Gaming 101 finally covered the SC series. It starts here with SC1, and covers the 3 officially released games in the series. The articles pull no punches, and some of the details are not completely factually accurate, but I've known some of the writers ar...

Re: The Thraddash Torch

I used to love flying the Torch, but that's because I primarily played against the AI, which has no clue how to handle the afterburner. I'm probably the only one on this board who will openly admit to liking the ship. Among PvP players, "Torch" is practically a curse word, and it's banned from most ...

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

4 does seem to be consistent though… I believe the Pkunk, Arilou and ZFP will all hand over 4 ships as well. Maybe the Yehat rebels give 4 too, but I’m not sure, since I only had room to add two Terminators at the time. Speaking of which… I know for sure that the Arilou and Yehat max out at 3. ZFP ...

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

I never did too much experimentation with it, but I am pretty sure I have received more than that on at least 1 occasion.

In answer to your earlier question: The Umgah will fill every available slot in your fleet with a Drone before they attack. How courteous!

Re: Ask a Mod!

I'm guessing because, like the rest of the board modifications, the anti-spam measures that had been in place were broken by the update. I'm sure this won't come to bite us in the ass at some unspecified point in the future, no sir.

Re: Sequels strife

Draxas, did you had any remaining hope of a out of court settlement? I would have liked to think so. Even though Stardock's first settlement salvo was completely unreasonable, lawyers are supposed to be able to negotiate those terms down to a more agreeable compromise. It could have wrapped this up...
