Re: Writing Prompt: An Eluder crewed by 29 Spathi and 1 Ilwrath

In all honesty, I don't think I'll have time to write a response for this prompt. However, if I would have had time, this is the concept I had in mind, expressed in crude terms: It is shortly before the Ur-Quan subjugation of the Spathi. Aboard the Black Spathi Eluder (should technically be Discrimi...

Re: Simply fan ideas

Fan races isn't really something I consider an apt approach. Often, it can end badly, and the Kohr-Ah tend to exterminate those ones very rapidly at any rate. Quite frankly, I don't blame them. What I will gladly discuss is ship design, however. There are countless ways to make a ship, and whilst ma...

Re: The Lurg Prawn (Project 6014)

The prawn's projectile has Druuge-like range, actually. It's not as fast, and it weaves around, but it can tag things pretty far away from it. It may have a fair max range, but I was talking more about effective range. A slow projectile with long range is fairly easy for most ships to avoid, so aft...

Re: The Lurg Prawn (Project 6014)

This was my exact problem. Being so used to not losing any crew at all with the Eluder in the original game really makes any fight where you have to aggressively dive in and take losses in the process really uncomfortable. Yeah, that was the main problem. The key troublemakers are the words "have t...

Re: Sequels strife

Well shit. The sad story of the man who didn't get what he wanted and therefore turned increasingly nasty in the pursuit of the goals in question just took an even worse turn.

Guess I'm boycotting Stardock now.

Re: Lil' Nemesis

A bit hard to see the full thing since it's entirely vertical (ergo, looks 2D from here)... and also you forgot to use the rimg option instead of the img one. That being said, You've got the shape down fairly well, and the coloring looks decent too. I must ask - does the turret rotate? Also, did you...

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

I still can’t help but keep wondering though, “How could the Precursor computer know about my childhood pet?” Think about it. Your ship has a time machine, allowing you to go backwards in time... yet at the same time, you can still recall what happened. The actual events that were reversed haven't ...

Re: Stardock CEO threatens to "eliminate" this community

Well then. Let's hope we don't end up discorporated.

Suffice to say, if there were any chance I'd buy Origins before, there isn't now. Shame, Stardock, shame.

Re: HG101 writeup

I somehow feel a bit offended that they think the Hierarchy is the more "powerful". Ask me, the Alliance simply relies more on skill, whereas the Hierarchy has more initial power but less capacity for growth as the player gets better. The Hierarchy's advantage only lasts so long as it takes for the ...
