16  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Fan-game: HUNT OF THE KOHR-AH on: April 24, 2020, 11:21:16 am
I know it's an attrition game. you need to keep your stuff long enough to hit the time limit.
Losses areplanned.

But still.

But then, also, I never took/had the time to really play it with sufficient time.
I ran it a few times in the background in office, taking a turn every now and then when I felt I could "loosen my brain up a bit".
Not a perfect setting to learn to navigate a new game.

Curenty I hope to get back into the German translation, and make a .uqm file again.
Had one for .3 or .4 version, but the versionw hich got saved is extremely buggy, and a lot of text translations got lost.
And it's not a .uqm (module) anymore, but a complete install someone gobbled up together of the .7 UQM releasee.

But having three kids, a full time job, a lrge garden (currently a blessing), and a larger house means you loose more time than youc ould ever have for yourself.

One also needs to remember that the Syreen have, due to the destruction of their homeworld, and basically most survivors being part of the female space force which had just been set up (guessing to celebrate, they sent all members of female space force up at the same time), the few females have to compete for the few men.

Although this argument fails now, a generation later, as the new births should provide 50/50 again.
But it may leave a culture influence, like advertising your goods, which doesn't leave as quick as the percentage of males replenishes.

But then, that's speculation., as it's nowhere hinted at in-game.

Yeah, back then I played, but maybe it's me, but somehow I never got the mining part (ressource gathering) right, and seemingl lost more than I won...

And the non-April-Fool's-pranks continue.
6 April 2020: https://well-of-souls.com/outsider/outsider178.html  , interesting that Beryl seems to be a rather happy runaway, having gotten away from "that backward place". And I wonder if referring to Fireblade as "Red" is such a smart move?

And I wonder if FireBlade did "see" him somehow by now as well, and which colour he has to her mind?
ETA: And if red is a warning colour to the Loroi as it is to us...

Let's have Arioch tell it himself:

No, really!

I've never been a fan of Fool's Day pranks, and I figure today the last thing people want is to be pranked. So here's a non-prank.

21  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Unzervalt - The Adventure Game on: March 18, 2020, 10:04:29 pm
Intrigueing.
The story of a kid, born to two scientists stranded on a mission, and now colonists.

And the knack of this kid to have a feel for how precursor machines and computers work.
And in the end, getting exploited into making an old man look good with the kids achievements.

Of how the kid learns to live in an environment foreign to Humans, a lot of freedom, but also living in a small society, with only limited, self-grown/self-madr supplies.

I do indeed see a big chance for a C64 adventure here....
Monkey-Island style, one person running around solving riddles, with the final goal of making the big, unknown machinery in a big, artifical cave work. and keeping it running...

At least it was so over the top, that it was easily recognisable as "rubbish".

Dangit, I've been trying to find that placeholder syreen comscreen image from Project 6014 (??) to paste into this conversation.
I'm giving up on that.

Hmm... Because I liked how book one got solved. Resurrecting a volcano to win an unwinnable fight....
He had great ideas...

3 February 2020 page 172. "See something you like?"

Talon's a real wing-girl....


Although Alex' staring may be due to the flashing of an implant....
26  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Outsider, SC inspired web comic... on: January 21, 2020, 10:08:34 am
To a degree, yes.
I stopped reading Erfworld a while ago. Maybe I should start picking up again'


Anyway,

13 January 2020: New page: 171

On the forums of outsider, people are exchanging their impressions of military emergency rations....

It does not seem like I missed out on anything....

Yes, it was, but still, not having had a chance to use the full defensive aim range meant their demise went faster.
She sacrificed them to have a chance at hiding....

And it went well, so far.
Although we have no confirmation of a Loroi having checked the passive sensors if the Umiak are combing through the debris, or not.

page 168.


So, now we learn in-comic that "Luck" is a zero-sum game for the Loroi, and that the Diral Leader takes on bad luck, to give the rest of the Diral members that are still alive a tad more luck.
Interesting approach.

Although Spiral has proven she can force luck to come her way, the stunt with the station was a pretty cold-blooded calculation....
29  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Whatever happened to 7 Deadly Sins? on: November 27, 2019, 02:57:05 pm
I would not know.


https://forums.sinsofasolarempire.com/306277/page/199/#replies also gives no hint.... Latest post there is from 7 August 2019.

But I think you refer to their old board/forum, which they reference there also as being gone.
They use the sinsofasolarempire forums now, apparently.

As it is a StarDock game, it might also be that StarDock pulled the mod, possibly connected to the agreement with FF and PR ( https://dogarandkazon.squarespace.com/blog/2019/6/11/the-only-way-to-win-is ), maybe they are interpreting the whole thing too strict, but it comes to my mind.

Maybe it's jsut a hiccup, and will sort itself out once the mod has its newest modification to work with the newest version of the sinsofasolarempire engine...

But you can ask more specific questions in the sinsofasolarempire forum I linked above.

That's with most charms of that kind...

Anyway, update notification, we now get an in-comic explanation of the Dirals...

page 167 - telepathy show-off

I like how Talon seems to coordinate the show telepathically, Spiral did not interrupt her, and Talon points at the same time at the Diral's tattoo they both got.
