Re: Best raw SC2 starmap images?

Sources of a plandata.c Map Extractor are here . Written in Java. Contains a Map viewer/loader/exporter I wrote in about 15 minutes and which is therefore quite crappy, but shows that things actually work. :) Uses the excellent XStream library to write out them XMLs. Works with both UQM and p6014, a...

I must admit that I haven't heard from most of those au...

Re: Matt Chat part 2: More Paul and Fred

No, but I can direct you to the wrong direction: The FreeSpace mods Voice Acting subforum has a few auditions running. I'd suggest contributing to the Blue Planet: War in Heaven project. Purely for selfish reasons, as I'm waiting with playing that until it's fully voiced, but it is by far the larges...

Re: Best raw SC2 starmap images?

I'm suddenly hit with a realisation; why isn't there a Google Maps style map for StarControl 2? That would be pretty sweet. Zoom in enough on a star and you could even show which system is underneath. I actually tried to create just such a thing during this year's Carnaval period. Looked through a ...

Re: Stupid Tsunami

..now remember that the Richter/moment magnitude scales aren't linear, and the power of that initial quake will truly boggle the mind. Indeed, Japan is to be applauded for their excellent quake-proof buildings. Most of the damage done had been a result of the tsunami rather than the actual quake. Th...

Re: Awesome free games

+1 for Space Rangers 2, even though it's not free. Amazing game. Sauerbraten has always been a damned fun 'old-school' fast FPS. Open-source, with an interesting community and developers who know what they're talking about, even though its 'godfather' hasn't been around in ages. Has an amazing in-g...

Re: M:bot reproduction problems

An interesting question. Let's start analyzing this by taking a look at what the Mother Ark is, and what it does. The Mother Ark is a huge factory vessel responsible for the creation of the Mmrnmhrm. Although not much is said of it in-game, it is implied that it is a huge vessel moving between star ...

Allright, source is up (Simplified BSD license) over at https://github.com/megagun/uqmatchbot Keep in mind that this is old, ugly code. Even I find it repulsive!
