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

This is not spoilery, as you already know the in-game stuff, and the rest is only in this role-playing guide Orz The Or are newcomers to the nearby region of space, having somehow displaced the Androsnth in the Vulpeculae constellation during only the last few years. The fate of the Androsynth is un...

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

Page 29 of the SC ii ressource guide (Attention, link contains SPOILERS.) by Paul Reiche III and Fred Ford.

I can cite the relevant passage, but not from this fricking mobile device...

They seem to be straight-forward gill-breathers, strong ethanol solution.

Re: Childrens' play log

I've been thinking about starting a game with my kids. But then, I'm thinking even more about waiting a bit more and introduce them to this game once their old enough to play totally alone. My oldest might catch on, but the other two are still too young. (The second would like to play, but his atten...

I'm guessing here, but by context I'm guessing the avian migration has begun. Again.

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

The Orz are wearing their suits also within the StarBase..... (Hayes told you that) I would therefore assume that they'll also di it aboard the Vindicator.

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

As far as I remember, the Ur-Quan or the Neo-Dnyarri explains, that the telepathy of the Dnyarri has been used to make the talking pets be able to speak any language, even of races never encountered before. Or to transmit the Ur-Quan demands directly into the brains of the "lesser" (non-Ur-Quan) sp...

@Troglodyte: yes, u fooled me.... :) Oh, I love the way the trademaster tells you We MUST stop meeting like this, Captain! Ha, ha, ha Har, Har, HAR snicker That's a pirate, alright... Formally, they buy a module in exchange for fuel, but if the module was very expensive, worth many credits more than...

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

Thanks Draxas. Now that you wrote it, I vaguely remember s.th. along those lines on the UQM forum as well... I only ever played UqM 0.3 (and original SC2), and they implemented it only later...... That would also explain Hayes' comment about the probes in the solar system... [edit]spoilered, can't r...

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

The Melnorme have a trait which you will not see in-game anymore. As long as you did not make them your enemies, they will come to you in time, if your fuel is empty and you are in HyperSpace. When you do not have Credits or BioInfo, they rip you off to give you just enough fuel to fly home (by taki...

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

Now you have plenty of Melnorme Credits, that's a nice way of saving time for refuel trips. You could also convert the Credits into fuel, and at the starbase convert the fuel into RU, if ever necessary....(as an idea) I always found the information about current events slightly too cheap, as that se...
