make it follow you, point the BUTT at them, save for a full batttery and let them all out in one go.

And bring patience!


Also: to reduce the chances of crashing into the planet, preferably you[r] flight should be strictly horizontal or vertical...

[edit: correction]

Nah, it was the wish of many in the community to have a random distribution mode, so thanks to Malin for the work and efforts!

It's a pity being full time employee and now full time teacher too (of three kids whose schools are closed), ...
No time for games. Sad

Thanks for trying it out, notASpamBot.

Also, lovely user-name. Cheesy

Sounds great, thanks!

Will there be a version upgrade to 0.8?

Vorlon ships are greenish..

Vorlons are non-corporeal.

I just copied an old post I found.

There are already feeds of people playing out there, so why stop you from doing it?

This game is so great, despite being old, it can use some spotlights.

Enjoy, and good luck!

Dear all,

I had some issues with my password (basically forgot the exact version of my password).

I tried a few times. A few days later I tried again.
Then I asked the system for a password reset, but never received a mail.
I asked multiple times in the course of nearly a month, but never once received a mail.
And yes, I did check my spam folders, mutiple times.

Imtried again and again,

Today I finally guessed he correct version, but still.

Since this is an old version of the forum software, and it's not highly frequented, I wonder if the system broke without anyone noticing, whether it's intentionally not sending mails, and whether anyone will ever try to upgrade the software.

Also, do new forum members receive their activation mail?
Because if that's broken too, "we" will have a hard time finding new members.

The titles of the three forums are petty self-explanatory.

Starbase Café is fine.
Discuss ahead.

We'll tell you is you your discussion points are offensive, but nearly any topic is game.

Liiike, what the drone says to you when you approach Earth?
Quote from: Kzer-Za Drone
Attention interloper - heed this recorded message!
This drone-vessel speaks with the voice and authority of the Ur-Quan.
You are trespassing within Ur-Quan space.
This world, Earth, may not be approached for any reason.
Nor will hostilities against our orbital platform be tolerated.
In addition, your ship does not respond to standard Hierarchy identification transmissions
and is therefore deemed to be independent.
This is not permissible -- only subservience shall be tolerated.
This drone now leaves to inform the Ur-Quan of your transgressions.
You are commanded to remain here and await the arrival of the Ur-Quan.
Disobedience will be punished.

Another one I like (because it's just one example of the Ur-Quan love for understatements):

Quote from: player
Uh oh.
Quote from: Kzer-Za
It is as though your species' brain is too small to hold a simple thought
such as, WE WILL KILL YOU FOR DISOBEYING!
This is not a complex idea.


edit:or play the audio files of a Pkunk recharging...

Oh, I used the Kohr-Ah words "We did. You did. Yes we can. No.", without context, telling the person that these words make perfect sense when talking to a homicidal maniac.
But even if you add the statement(s) beforehand, it does lure people.
(And I lured that person before Obama hijacked a part of this slogan for his campaign.)

Quote from: player
You have attacked us before, and we survived! You cannot defeat us. Submit!
Quote from: Aliens
We did. You did. Yes we can. No.


Also, if your friend will not play, he'll never truly understand the meaning of "Cowabunga!"... Which would be sad.
So thank you for spreading "Juffo-Wup" in his direction, to Void the Non.
But by now (s)he'll just assume you're *spitting* *shiny* *words*.
And don't forget to mention there'll be plenty of *dancing*, and that (s)he should enjoy *squeezing* *the juice*.

I fully agree. A Mael-Num cuddle would be awesome.

Yes, the lore was extensive for such a game, but also purposefully cut short at certain limits, to allow the player's imagination to fill in.
Hence my fear that no follow-up game could ever get to fulfil expectations.

Lorewise, SC3 (by a different maker) did well, but closed too many storylines, and left not enough open to interpretation.
Some elements of SC3 I really liked, (just like I disliked many)  but that's a different topic.
