One add-on I'd like to see is the ability to buy
probes from the Melnorm. Having a few of those
in my fleet would kick butt.

I think I can do that!!! Smiley

I have been thinking about it and most of the ideas I came up with for modifications don't really enhance the gameplay.

I did some funny things though to the ships... Some funny results in melee...

For example, I made it so that the Syreen can take ALL of your crew...hahah.... leaving your ship a floating derelict...

Also made it so the Orz can send off ALL their crew as marines... leaving a floating derelict again... hehe...

I speaka the Spanish!  English is my native tongue, however.  I'm fluent in Spanish so I think I could help.  I have friends who are native Spanish speakers who could help me with any questions I might run into.

What about you?  Are you a native Spanish speaker or what's the deal?

I bet some of it would be hard to translate with some of the pseudo-tech jargon..hehe...

Has anyone made their own custom builds of this game?

I downloaded the source last night and got it all ready to compile.  I thought it would be fun to make a few changes just for the heck of it.

I started simple, I made the human ships resurrect just like the Pkunk do, and I made the human ship shoot 3 nukes at a time instead of one - one out the front, and one out each side, and all 3 track as usual.

Anyways I had some other changes in mind to the gameplay just for fun, like the ability to purchase alien weapon technology and install it on your Human fighter ships, ability to occasionally gain a technology secret by destroying a Melnorme trader instead of always having to buy from him, etc.

Any other customized versions out there or am I just crazy?  I have beat the game a few times already so I think it would be fun to change things up a little...

P.S. - I use the nickname Hellbore on many different forums I visit, usually paintball related forums, and people often ask me where the name is from.  Well I got it from Star Control 2 and the Hellbore Cannon Smiley
