StarControl-old notes of Paul Reiche
« on: March 09, 2018, 05:53:15 am »

A nice sideeffect of the lawsuit:
FF and especially PR are digging through their old boxes, and digitalizimg their old Star Control related stuff.
Best of all, they're sharing with us!

https://www.dogarandkazon.com/blog/2018/3/8/all-aboard-the-starship-discovery
First shared is the development notebook for later SC1 and thoughout SC2 development....

Gotta leave,so can't scroll through all now, but looking forward to the Weekend and time to discover the notes in detail...

This might be interesting to read  Wink

Anyhow, this whole thing seems extremely silly. Reminds me about when Donald Trump requested to see Obama's birth certificate.

However, I do believe the Arilou also had some involvement in the the creation of SC2  Wink

You desire honesty. It is given.
We have visited your world for many thousands of years into your species' past.
We have changed things... made modifications.

Believe me, Captain, we have known each other for a very long time.
You might even say that we knew the first human.

You have painted our pictures on cave walls, erected standing stones and pyramids for us.
You have wondered at our signs to each other in your wheat fields
and written books about our more personal endeavors
when we allowed you to recall our examinations.
We have a history together, Captain, and you have come a long way.
But I must tread carefully. You are not ready for everything
and I fear that you would not understand what was best for you.

I love looking at the old designs, but I'm a little worried that they might spoil things that P&F plan to put in GotP.

Don't worry.  We have preserved the most important secrets.  We are watching.  We grow stonger.

Glad to hear you're watching, and I'll just say that I really, really, hope that this whole disagreement can be settled so that everyone can get back to making games.  I'm doing my best to try to keep my Chenjesu analytical side just looking at the facts from both sides, but it's clear that there have been a lot of miscommunications (either poorly spoken by the speaker, or misinterpreted by the receiver).  I'll keep my fingers (do Chenjesu have fingers?) crossed.

You sound like an Arilou Lalee'lay....
And I bet you think it's for my own good that you're watching and keeping secrets....

Thank you, Great Dogar
Thank you, Mighty Kazon
Yuubuu are mighty
Yuubuu are the most hideous and deceitful

Thanks for publishing this sketchbook
It is something that if it were not for this legal problem,
maybe we wouldn't ever known it.
I love see this kind of work because we can see Star Control when it was barely a baby, when everything was being born.
I hope this legal issue is resolved soon in your favor and you can continue the story, I would spend whatever to buy the real Star Control 3.
I would even upgrade this old junk in which I'm writing to be able to play.

(Sorry if my english is bad)
Greetings from Argentina

Was going to say, what an amazing find to dig up from so long ago! The context couldn't suck worse but at least we get to see this marvel!

the content sucks, because it is edited.

"We have preserved the most important secrets." (quoted from Fred's post)
is a pretty clear indication to me, that the ideas which they haven't considered within SC2, and which may make an entrance into GotP have not been photographed AND published.

I found the changes between some things I saw here and there to what I remember from the game astonishing.
Not world-breaking, but interesting nontheless.

Of course I would've loved to see the ideas that did not make it into the game, to extend the lore that way.
But GotP will do that.

So, anyone up for a trip to Beta Corvi?
I wanna hear if our friends there have been able to piece more of their History Chants by talking to the other Slylandros, and not just the memory of the three representatives we've been talking with.
It may be very interesting what they may remember about the Sentient Milieu and the Shaggy Ones, once they put their combined remembering brain power behind this effort.

(Might be a good starting point for GotP - the memory being the closest to a ghost we have of them)

update: new set of notes:
https://www.dogarandkazon.com/blog/2018/3/13/starship-discovery-ii

Interestingly, the name "Star Control" has also been coined by FF and PR, as the first images show.
Those have been used to pitch Star Control for EA, before they pitched again with Accolade.
