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

This here? The replenishing armada? I never got it, since I always used my BumpingTool to fight off the Ur-Quan factions.... I only found out about the additional ships once I played UQM 0.3 and read it in the forums.... Also, good to see you having passed the second line of defense. Now let's hope ...

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

So it is readable how I meant the question...


Anyway, I hope the captain has fun on his trip and informs us staybacks at the base rather sooner than later about how it went.

Then I do wish you a lot of luck.

And I'm curious.

Have fun!

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

Oh, I did send the defenders away, but only in the view of the planet and moon screen, once I was inside the ring.


And if you find it a spoiler to say that some ships work better than I expected them to work in my hands, then we have extremely different views of spoilering an experience.

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

I did not expect my question to mean "I think you'll loose", so I saw little spoilers in there. (I never intended my question to be a hint at anything. Furthermore some ships in his fleet will work rather well, some less, depends on how quick his fingers are in getting the control right.) [edit:add...

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

Interesting set-up. Have fun! (BTW: I never used the point-defense laser in this setup. A fight is so quick, the fighters won't get near you anyway, and the hellbores converging on the Ur-Quan kill the fighters on their path to the Dreadnought. - But it doesn't change much, the Kzer-Za are not the r...

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

Here we finally go! Yay! One remark: Since you don't know the way the Sa-Matra fights, expect some really bad choices on your side regarding fleet setup and armament of your flagship. I know it took me a few tries to finally win against the Sa-Matra. Now I know of things that make it rather easy, bu...

Re: Official teaser announcement of lawsuit settlement.

Yes, "they" (Fred, Paul, Brad) met at the E3, and discussed some elements there.
Besides a photo, I haven't seen other news which they disclosed there.

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

Indeed. I remember I went to visit all races before facing the Ur-Quan combined fleet on my first play. Just to see if my allies (and possibly others) would join me on this crucial run. I remember my some of my thinking: Alas, at that time the Dill-Rats, the Thraddash, and the Pkunk did not exist an...
