Hey all!

The patreon is up!
https://pistolshrimpgames.com/2022/06/pistol-shrimp-wants-more-than-your-brains/

basically, development is ongoing, and if you want more glimpses, please support, as this will be their income until the game gets released quite a while from now.
On the actual patreon page, Dan published a video which shows more than the streams so far, graphics wise.
Have a glimpse yourself!  https://www.patreon.com/posts/chmmr-art-demo-68486324

Tired of just watching Dan work? Want to take matters into your own hands or other appendages? Something big is coming, and you get to be part of it!

Also a patreon will be set up.

Another newspost, the developers of UQM2 have set up an official game studio to get things going.

Not, it's not "Frungy Games".

So, Alex now chooses actively a side - let's hope no bug survives to report this, as Neutrality is now definitely over, albeit an isolated instance.


Let's see how strong the weapon is, and how Alex is able to help the Blue Space Elves.

I saw this thread, and it prompted me to exit lurker mode and post something again.

I remembered that way back, someone drew up some art of the Chenjesu. I absolutely loved that. The topic was http://forum.uqm.stack.nl/index.php?topic=3904.15

Mind you, it is a very old topic, and people have come and gone between now and then. What I said in that topic though still reflects what I think of the Chenjesu; they might have integrated some tech from another race to make their crystalline bodies move around. They may have been fully crystalline and "rigid" in the past, the only movement of an entity  is that of "growing" into a place. Chenjesu ships may have taken them ages to grow in the past, but with gathered tech have allowed them to expand and grow more rapidly.

So my opinion in short; gathered tech have made them more mobile, before that time, they moved by growing into place, their appearance being that of crystals.

Feel free to ignore it though, I always love seeing your artwork...

Hmm, spam bot quoting something from the thread much earlier, and pretending it's its own stuff.
And adding a spam link.

No running version currently, but this makes me curious!

Thank you!

TY, Mark!

I agree, megamod is currently the best version if you're not going for the plain vanilla.
13  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: New interview with Fred and Paul on: August 31, 2021, 09:54:51 am
It should, but it's something for after Talana wakes you up, and before you get to see your grandchildren.

And no, it's not in the game.

Finally watched it fully.

As a German, I always wondered where the notion of Reiche being a Danish name came from.
It's not as if Danish use the "ei" sound like Germans do.
But interesting that they kept the correct pronunciation of "Reiche" for those who asked through the generations.


Current UQM has 4+ endings, of which 2 are merged in the final credits, as there is no reference to the non-revolution:
Death-March (you lose - you get a short talk)
you got yourself killed (you lose - unceremonious ending fading to black)
You win, with the Yehat Revolution started (you win)
You win, without the Yehat REevolution (you win, same ending as above)
Some in-betweens, during the death-march but you still destroyed the Sa-Matra (you win, same ending as the other "wins").
You slave-trader - you go to court (you win, but yeah, this ending has nothing else - whatever it takes)

But it indeed feels as if it's only one ending. (as "you lose" is not an ending a player accepts), and all others lead to the same slide-show, with the same credits.

On the forums, there's a discussion about how the Loroi don't trust Alex, as Alex could be a planted mole by the Umiak.
Same for any Loroi that has been on an Umiak-occupied planet.

Recently, the suggestion popped up, that Fireblade, who was on an occupied planet, may have experienced stuff by the Umiak which makes her Sanzai susceptible for Alex to be sensed.

Or it's indeed just her strong sending, and her opennes to be received by all, because the Loroi have never made the experience that any non-Loroi is listening in.
