when the former reaches 1000 or the latter reaches 10000 we'll throw a forum party! But, seeing how the forum hasn't been really fast lately, I don't think this will be any time soon.

Off Topic / Far Cry
« on: June 01, 2004, 05:07:33 am »
I have recently aquired the well-known game: Far Cry, and to be quite honoust... it kicks mayor ass!

I mean, there's the ability to aproach each level in a number of ways...
example: One level you have to take out some communications dish on top some hill, but to get there you need to take your inflatable boat to land... OR you can leave it where it is, and swim around the island, to find another Lagune where you can easily slip through some plants and end up a whole lot closer to the dish!

...then there's the Sweet physics engine...
example: I was sneeking up on a building, when this guy suddenly apears from the right and starts shooting at me, naturally I return fire (with a P90) mowing through him from right to left. The last bullet I fire hits him a little low in his back, making him spasm, collaps partly backward, hit his head into a tree that happened to be in front of him, and knocked him out!

...the rich amount of weaponry you can find and use...
example: The M4 carbine, P90 Sub-machine gun, Rocket launcher, Minigun, mortar etc. with rocks...
example: Somewhere near the beginning I had to distract a guard by throwing rocks near him! He was like "Hey! What's that?" and I was like "..." (walking by quietly)

...convincing Artificial intelligence...
example: I was mowing through some enemies with my M4 again when this one guy took a dive away from my bullets into some bushes. Naturally I followed to finish him off, when he suddenly apeared behind me. He had actually snuck up around some obstacles (without being seen) and had almost whooped my ass from behind! Now I'm not mentioning the coordinated teaming of the mercenary's or their ability to call for assistance.

...Random conversations between my adversaries...
example: You can use your binoculars to spy on people, but it also has a distance microphone so you can hear them out as well. I've heard Mercs playing poker, wondering why their radios won't work by sattelites, being bored and wanting action (right before I shot them) and  lots more.

...penetrable walls...
example: This one time I was racing across the beach with my buggy and I saw a little house with 2 guys in front of it. Naturally I mowed through them with my mounted machine gun, mowing through the little house as well. Then after I was done mowing ;) I moved into the house to find another guy, dead, fallen from his bed.

...and some cool stuff I have yet to find out.
no example available.

So if you haven't tried it yet, I suggest you do!

*Heavy* Space / Strange Energies
« on: May 25, 2004, 08:44:31 am »
Far away across the stars, invisble from the "home Quadrant" an event occurs wich happens almost daily throughout the universe. A star goes supernova. However something strange happens this time, followed by the mandatory shockwave, a second wave follows, green, and spreading faster then the light can rebound off it, leaving a surreal effect behind.

as this wave spreads through the universe it pulverises worlds and makes stars implode, but the further it spreads, the more harmless the effects are. as it closes in on the Home quadrant, it's destructive force has disapeared, but it leaves strange effects behind nonetheless. Creatures behave oddly, instincts dissolve or awake, carnivores become herbivores, sentient creatures make desicions they never thought they would make. The universe goes mad!

Lord 152 watches out of the frontwindows of the Dreadnought he is currently commanding. The slaves are resting. There is peace between the species, and the Orz have long since vanished since the last incident1.

"It almost seems too quiet"

She mumbles. Then all of a sudden a shock goes through the Dreadnought, but the vessel doesn't move. Lord 152's eyes go wide open and she falls to the ground. A loud "Fwump" let's her know that she reached it. After a few seconds of agony, she manages to get up and look around the cockpit, then suddenly a green flash blinds her. Again she falls, though this time she manages to break her fall with 2 of her tentacles.

"What the..." She starts, but she doesn't finish her sentence. She became aware of something... something is missing. She gets up and looks around in search of one of the slaves. "Right, they where resting!" She grabs towards the supports attached to the ceiling of the Dreadnought, and moves herself quickly to one of the Quarters.

"It can't be... it shouln't be... it better be!" She mumbles as she moves quickly from corridor to corridor. "it... ah!" She arrives at the quarters and opens the door without further concideration. The Slave, member of a race long forgotten, opens it's eyes and stares straight in the face of Lord 152. "Ayyeeeh!" it screams, knowing very well that Ur-quans NEVER visits slaves unless it has something to do with execution or getting fired, wich is the same thing.

Lord 152 moves her head in the small quarters and practically touches the frightened slave, wich clenches it's eyes shut, afraid of the faith to come. "Well I'll be..." She retracts her head and ponders a while. The slave, now dearing to look, realises that it isn't dead yet and wonders what is going on. Lord 152 looks down at her tentacles. They are still smooth and shut. A sign that she has no intent to fight or kill anytime soon. Without looking back at the slave she hurries back to the control center in the front of the ship.

She takes the COMM device and hails the nearest Dreadnought. "This is Lord 443, why do you call me Lord 152?" Lord 152 takes the communication device in one of her tentacles and brings it to her mouth. "443, it's gone!" In the other Dreadnought, Lord 443 awaits what is coming next "It's gone! I just moved in a Slave Quarter, practically touching the creature, but I haven't even opened my tentacles!"

In the other Dreadnought Lord 443 holds his com device near his mouth, but he does not speak. Could it be, is The Instinct really gone?

1 See The Grand Council thread for previous events along this timeline.

OOC Thread for the Strange Energies RP.

Starcontrol races only please. You can pick anyone you want, preferrably the one you had in the "grand council" thread as this story takes place a little while after that. If you don't know what's going on, wait a few posts until you're sure. there's nothing worse then someone ruining the story because of misinterprentation :P

Update: Ok... the point of the story is that all species are starting to behave strangely, stuff against their nature. Subtle at first but more clearly later on. Think Brave Spathi's, giving Melnorme, Evil Pkunk and whatnot. Just pick your race and figure out where you're heading, and then just describe the moment the "blast hits!"

if you're not sure about your desicion then feel free to post them here, as well as comments on the story at hand.

General Discussion / Stupid Browser thing
« on: May 10, 2004, 08:06:30 pm »
Well, my browser's been acting up again. This time it's changed the fonts to Aproximatly 2x the size. Very strange. Anyone recall having this problem?

I'm running Windows2000 and this thing happened all of a sudden.

Off Topic / Hotlinking Hosting
« on: May 09, 2004, 09:27:56 pm »
A little while back, a_stupid_box posted a few Hosting parties that allowed Hotlinking, unfortunatly the "AOL screenname service" went down for some strange reason.

anyway, I was wondering what kind of services would also allow hotlinking, since I really need those in conjunction with my new forum:

Off Topic / Supernatural
« on: April 24, 2004, 02:58:30 am »
Now I'm not talking about the band or that one song by Lessness, no I'm talking about the actual Supernatural. The world that most people don't believe, some can see and others can manipulate.

Do you believe it?

Do you think it is worth knowing about it?

Do you think it's a bunch of hoowey?

What are your opinions and beliefs about the Supernatural?

Off Topic / If you are looking for fun, you found it!

This topic will probably die soon enough, but I'd like to inform everyone that I set up a little Webcomic. The website itself isn't very innovative, but this way I had more time for the comic itself.


Enjoy, and let me know what you think. More updates on the site will come anyway.

Off Topic / A new smilie!
« on: February 17, 2004, 04:14:25 am »
Hey, isn't this smiley new here?  ::)

I remember it being a glasses smiley before. And in case you're wondering... yes I'm bored, maybe this discussion will end up like the "What are Orz" thread. Basically dull, but look at how long it got!

Edit: Shite! My browser froze on a specific frame, so the smiley had closed eyes... someone please 'fix' this thread! Prefferrably by posting something usefull in it!

Off Topic / A novel...
« on: February 02, 2004, 07:44:34 am »
I've been thinking about writing a novel lately. I've got a pretty good basic story, an aproximate area, some sideinformation (layout of the lands, building interiour, names etc.) and I was just thinking about 1 question:

How does one start a novel?

Do you simply keep writing until you find it done, or do you lay down a few mayor events?

Just wanting to know your personal views on the matter...
