Re: [WIP] Star Control 1 remake

In theory the original was like chess - in that the rules are pretty rigid; ship X will beat ship Y unless the player makes a mistake. In any of the 9 or so scenarios it should be possible to think out a solution first and then execute. In practice I tend to just build the most powerful ships I can...

Re: Development to Begin This Fall on New Star Control Game

So Brad Wardell posted this on the Stardock forums . Basically, they're planning to reboot a new alternate timeline starting with Chenjesu first contact. Speaking as a fan and as an executive producer, the elephant in the room is Star Control 3. I don't want to treat it as canon. But at the same tim...

Re: [WIP] Star Control 1 remake

Dragon may want to change some of this, but here are the additional map objects in SC1... There were three types of planets: Life Worlds, Mineral Worlds, and Dead Worlds (always one planet per star). There were also three types of installations you could build: Fortifications, Mines, and Colonies. M...

Re: Project 6014: Update

TFB said in a chat once that a potential sequel would probably begin with Fwiffo accidentally causing something really bad to happen. :)-smf (Not that I think 6014 should follow this, it should be its own alternate timeline)

Re: Project 6014: Update

I do think it could be very funny to have an argument between two or three Spathi who all have somewhat different personalities. I can imagine the "logical" conclusions that they could make to rationalize their fear of the Ultimate Evil. Fwiffo has a slightly different personality from the other Sp...

Re: Project 6014: Update

It is much easier to do different conversations for every character when you have lots of fixed locations in towns or other locations where you know the player will be talking to them and where you can place a specific NPC. When most conversations take place from random encounters in space, you can'...

1001 video games you must play before you die

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51k79fEYYDL._SS500_.jpg I saw this book at Borders and checked out of curiosity to see if Star Control 2 was in it. And it didn't make the list. But what really shocked me is that while they left SC2 out (which seems basically inexcusable with this big a list),...

Re: Star Control Two voice acting?

The UQM development team has done a lot of great work and I'm thankful for what they've produced, but I think it's a mistake to leave the missing dialogue out for so long (not just the Mycon, but also a few other things like the Melnorme Metachron). It seems to me that it's definitely more important...

Re: Aliens from Precursor Time

Or maybe they devolved themselves into nonsentient lizard-cows ::)-smf

On a more serious note, didn't Paul or Fred once say something in a chat about the Orz trying to prevent the return of the Precursors in an SC2 sequel?
