On another note, this is now the hundredth page. Let us rejoice.

Happy 100 pages! :D Who wants to bet that Trog will finish the game before reaching page 200? :P

I'm replying here to make it slightly more difficult for Trog (one more post down).

OTOH, now he's stopped mining every planet, the story progresses much faster, which might enable him to get to the finish line sometime.

The question is whether he'll make it before The Ghosts of the Precursors hit us...

I have noticed that there’s been more of a buzz around here as of late, but besides a little dipping in to a few topics to ascertain what’s been up lately, I’ve tried to refrain from reading too much of the commentary of the new topics, since I’m aware that there could be a high likelihood of Star Control reference that could possibly be spoilerous to me.

So is this “Ghost of the Precursors” a new upcoming Star Control game? Is it the revived remnant of StarDock? Is it the sequel to Star Control 3?

It's the original creators (Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III) creating a direct sequel to SC2/UQM, ignoring SC3 and Stardock's SC:Origins.

Stardock is also continuing with their SC: Origins. It was never in need of revival; I understand it is close to release.

I do not think FF & PR3 will be on such a blistering schedule that you are in any danger of having a sequel released before you are done.

Indeed, GotP will be a new StarControl by the creators of StarControl and StarControl 2.
It will be a direct sequel, and they will solve some of the open questions SC2 left.

I assume having been given the title will not spoiler you, but I will refrain from referencing the rest here.

Also, I indeed believe you will be faster in finishing and finalizing the writings here that FF and PR3 in publishing GotP.

have fun!

Are we sure about that? The Troglodyte isn't exactly on a blistering schedule either. :P

(Disclaimer: I'm just teasing, Trog; you continue at your own pace and you'll be fine) :)

I'd be willing to bet, now that he has access to the portal spawner and keeps making steady progress, Trog will wrap up the game before this thread doubles in size. Which, y'know, is already by far the largest thread this board has.

Oh, I can actively work...

... against your bet.

Doing this to show the principle of how I would/could do so.

edit: heh, this got even split over two pages. .. :)

MOD EDIT: Merged. Trog is right.
