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

For engaging the Maulers, aside from the aforementioned vessels, a Terminator also works quite well for soaking up shots due to its shields. Someone quick on the shield trigger can block and dodge the projectiles until the Druuge have missed/wasted enough shots to cease being a threat, but it does r...

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

Huh... I didn't know the RU cost increases stacked. Neato.

Anyway, it's nice to see some life around here. The forum's been disturbingly quiet recently, almost as though some particular black-chitined race which shall remain anonymous swept through here.

Keep up the experimentation, captain!

Pfffft spoiler tags don't protect against links.
The link itself poses no spoiler. The tag was to indicate that following the link would present spoilers.
Ah. Fair enough.

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

According to the dialogue transcript posted here - http://www.sa-matra.net/quotes/druuge/ they, indeed, do not. Pfffft spoiler tags don't protect against links. All the spoiler tag does is set the background to black... and I hate to tell ya, but links aren't black. This here spoiler tag, however, ...

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

Shofixti supply overrides that, and I think he's either got that or will soon. Actually as far as I know, the Shofixti doesn't hard-override the cost. The Shofixti sets the cost to one fifth. The Druuge 'effect' triples it. As far as I recall, when both are in effect you get an effective crew cost ...

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

Do not worry, captain. It's all just business. Unscrupulous, greedy business, perhaps, but do not take it personally. After all, it's all in the name of profit margins, and as any Druuge worth their salt would tell you, what in life is more important than a good profit margin? Now, you may not neces...

Re: Why can't there be PEACE?? (legal stuff)

Sure it would be nice. The problem is, either the copyright is with F&P (as it should be), or it's not. If it is F&P's, starbuck has a problem because they have a stake in Origins saying otherwise. If it isn't, F&P have lost their property. Either way, someone loses, and neither side wants to be the...

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

That being said, this is excellent evidence for just why they swiftly stopped crewing Penetrators with human crew during the Ur-Quan Slave War. Now, if Talana wasn't a factor, this could pose more of a risk than it currently does.

Re: Sequels strife

If Stardock hadn't gotten greedy, none of this would have happened. Serves them right.
