I like almost all of them ). Well, OK, Hyperspace and Yehat themes will do.
Pity that I have a very slow connection and am unable to download the remixed ones.

Have it be made totally clear that this is coming from a ship in your fleet and not any outsider, but everything else that you hear from him should be complete and utter nonsense to even the most astute players.

The dialog beginning with a
(INCOMING TRANSMISSION FROM AN ORZ CAPTAIN IN OUR FLEET)
will probably do.

"It is possible to destroy a huge homeworld fleet!"
I think this counts as a myth )

Beware! These weird-looking cats are possesed by Orz and want a *fun game*! Grin
7  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: ZoqFotPik question on: August 03, 2006, 06:48:12 pm
And after all... we don't have an answer to questions like "Why is the planet is only 3 times bigger than a spaceship", or, say, "Why minerals on planetary surfaces look like colored dots" . Not to mention the Crew/Hull discussion or "how 12 ships fit in the Vindicator" and so on...
It's a similar question.
I don't even think that PR3 and FF can answer these ) And they don't have too ))

Skate or Die!? Is this what I think?
This old stuff with the monstrous punk in the main menu!? Smiley)

Er...
Why does the Eltie race has a ship named Metranome Sentry?

Quote
By the events of SC2, they had made the native animals "inteligent" enough to build a ship for which the Metranomes could pilot
BTW, this leaves a place for yet another race - these native animals, who have become a sentient space-travelling race because of the Metranomes...
As they are mere animals who have been just quickly "modified" to become intelligent, they have no culture and are socially primitive - therefore, agressive, like Thraddash...
Or something like that.

So Fantasy is Improvement and Fancy, Sci-Fi is Survival and Nightmares.
Agreed. Sci-Fi is generally a lot more mysterious. Probably because Sci-Fi is wider and have almost no restrictions for storyline/plot while Fantasy have certain bounds...
As for me, I like both of them.
BtW, Fantasy with Sci-Fi elements is not a bad thing too...

I always thought that each Zot, Fot or Pik count as 1/3 crew so in fact there are 30 of them...
12  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Yoho! Cower ye mortals, for The Cookies Mod has returned! on: June 29, 2006, 11:04:30 pm
there was a nice idea in one thread... don't remember who's the author and in which thread...
something like that:
No RU anymore. Instead, the ships will cost something like this:
EARTHLING CRUISER
500 base metal
(hull)
100 commons
50 corrosive
20 noble
20 rare earth
40 precious
(these all for various parts of the ships, say, electronics and etc.)
100 radioactives
(for the ship's power core)
for plain cruiser, no exotics needed

This will make the player look for _all_ the resources.
Alien ships will need also exotics, etc.
(especially the ones like Utwig Juggers will devour large amount of exotic resources)

The crew will then cost 3 commons, and the fuel will cost, say, 3 radioactives/unit.

Or, for example, a hellbore cannon will cost something like:
100 base metal (in fact, the cannon is not big, yet powerful)
50 precious (for electronic compounds)
400 radioactives (due to large amounts of power consumed)
200 exotics (due to certain powerful alien technology)

While debris collection will look something like:
3 ur-quan dreadnoughts
+87*3 commons collected
+12*3 exotics collected
well you got the idea )

Of course this means that you'll have to tweak the planets - more commons (for crew), for example.

I always thought that in the Alliance Earthling Cruisers were meant to be something like Space Artillery - long range, useless in close combat, not so fast...

Dungeon Master 2

One of the most atmospheric RPGs. The music, the depressive backgrounds, weird spellcasting system, magic and technology combined... great.

Quote
2. Heroes of Might and Magic 2

That's all 3DO's fault!! Smiley MM4,5 and HMM1,2 were great. I enjoy these graphics even now. Monsters in MM4,5 were nice (if not to say CUTE Smiley). Everything else - naah (well, maybe HMM3 is not that bad). And then, MM6, and everything gone wrong... Sad

Greatest? "Favorite" sounds more like this.
And 2 just isn't enough...
Something like this, in no particular order:
SC2 (default)
Deus Ex
Arcanum
ADOM (!?)
Fallout 1/2
Jagged Alliance 2
Dungeon Master 2,
Might&Magic 4/5
Wizardry 7 - Crusaders of Dark Savant (if not the best PC RPG ever)
... and etc.
