Looks good!

Nope, his account got hacked, and the DNS redirected elsewhere.
Should be repaired, if not the DNS is spreading correctly again.
As some of you may have noticed, the site has been down for a couple of days. Thieves compromised my account at the domain provider on Sunday and redirected the DNS somewhere else. If you can see this, then it's been fixed! If not, it may take a few days for the fixes to work their way through the system.

Also: new page: page 162.

Time for some friendly greetings in a relaxed atmosphere.

I started to wonder...


Anyway, the servers eem to be down (no DNS entry).
Maybe he's moving providers....
edit: it's back online. Possibly just a moving of servers to new IP-addresses.

page 161 is up.

Not much is happening, but Captain Obvious is on board, naming the blade a blade.

In this regard I'm also in a bad pinch:
I like this genre of games so much, and from what I've seen, SC:Origins is actually well made.
Not supporting the only mainstream game in this genre does not embolden other developers to go for it with their ideas.
 -> less UQM-style games

But sending money towards Stardock / Mr. Wardell just gives the signal "You got away with this behaviour. No lesson to be learnt here."

Furthermore:
while the settlement may define some things to be final under US-law, that's far from all the damage Stardock can do.
European courts proceedings are not bound by this settlement.
Chinese, Indian, ... court proceedings neither.
And seeing the sizes of their potential markets, the US-market pales in comparison, and remains important only because the games prices are high there and it is the home market for most developers.

On the balance, my personal situation tips the scale towards "no money for Stardock games".

And with "fascinating" you mean: hard to track, should be impossible, don't really know what could even cause it,....

Good luck finding something!

Well, the line of weekly had been broken, and this one lacks shading for now.

Anyway, looks like someone realizes he'll be sharing the accomodation...

Sounds good to me.

The intro part could've run a tad longer.

Never played doom much, so can't say I remember the doom music....

Pity my car player doesn't play .ogg files.

Not enough pixelation...
Nice!

The sentence refers to the name change, the announcement of a new name.
Well.... The game itself will only come after that.

This list is for future, new games.
Current SC:O remains untouched, if I remember correctly. (So these cameo appearances have apparently been considered in the agreement as being okay.)


In any case, I'm expecting UQM2 to be released in 2021. Smiley
Sorry to spoil your fun a tiny bit, but I finally found the exact quote I was looking for.

Paul and Fred will be changing the name "Ghosts of the Precursors" to something a little less generic
-- (come on, you know we can do better!).  The precise ‘when’ is unclear, but it is still several years off
.
(emphasis by me)

Quote from: Draginol
Yea, so Melnorme and ZFP are words we agreed we wouldn't use within future SC games.
And frumple
not just frumple
So, ZoqFotPik is off-limits for Stardock.
