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

Dear Captain Troglodyte, dear Emperor Zelnick, I think somebody just raised the bar for forum posting! But really, this is awesome and, as you can see, I practiced using your first post to this topic as a test run. ;) Thanks! You're welcome. With older phpBB boards, this was standard. Now there are...

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

Sure, for the StarBase it may be good additional material. But for the new vessels to be built, or the modules to enhance the Vindicator? If you lack common materials, you may find that precious metals may not be so valuable after all. It's the mixture you bring in, but when you only bring in gold, ...

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

Well, a gold coating will be sufficient to protect your hull against electrical discharges. But gold is a very "soft" metal, and not capable of holding a one bar atmosphere in vacuum, except if your build it extraordinarily thick (and with the relative weight of gold, that may mean the need to insta...

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

BumpingTool Interesting ship name. Is there a back-story? Well, I was always bumping into the planets (mostly accientally). So when my friends started joking about it (we played in on school computers in school), I demonstrated that I could do it on purpose in-game. Alas, I failed, by having the in...

Re: Name Game

Yes, I am, Angelfail. In 1995 I finished school and left for university, which I visited in Germany. But I am German, and in German Krulle is a better pronouncable abbreviation of Krulle(n)bol than Krullen would be. So, is it "Pannekoeken" or "Pannenkoeken" for you? I always use only one pan for pan...
