46  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Mike's super map on: May 24, 2019, 10:37:17 pm
Interesting, but I can't really see an advantage to other maps out there.
Also, planet type is irrelevant, helpful would be RU or BIO amounts on map.
Also, deselecting planets or artifacts removes all systems for me.

Can't search "Caster", result is a map without stars....

Still prefer my papermap or Mooses' JavaScript map (which starts spoiler free until you select something spoilerish). (I don't know the name or nick of the creator, it's just stored on mooses.nl,corrsponding gitHub page indicates I should thank Joris van der Donk).


But then maybe the lack of functionality on your map is my iOS browser.... (don't feel disencouraged to work on your map! You need to start somewhere...)


edit: interesting, I clicked on some systems, and Earth provides me with a value of 315...
Sorted by value only? Makes it weird planning a trip through the system....
Also, when clicking a system (my tested examples: Sol, Arcturus, Procyon), it does not show the homeplanets or artifacts, nor indicates the invisitable planets under slave shields....

Wow, that is an impressive feat by the Pocket HistorianTM and its supportive systems.

Pretty sure it is Historian origin.

The Historian Emissary was present on the bridge when Alexander gave his name's translation, page 62.

And, the datapad did not have a "message received" blinking indicator before the trash bin (nickname from the Outisder-forums) made its noises. (Alex looks at the pad on page 152, and comments on the new indicator a page later.)

BTW, we now have 22 July [edit]2160[/edit] in-comic, which is 8 days later then when the Bellarmine entered the Naam system.

Update Notification!

So, first lesson when dealing with computer security: never open attachments from unknown, unsollicited, or unexpected sources!

But in this specific case?
I wonder if I would not start that smart chess program, that's been able to understand my language despite first contact, been able to analyze my hardware so that it can send me something, and that could bypass the "fly mode", and yet was not able to autostart itself....

Skynet activated!

So, Alexander got dressed, and got mail.
The bucket that went "Whirrrrr Clik!" is very similar to the crude container used by the Historian Personality Construct during chapter 1.
Anyone's guess now from whom the message comes.


Edit: also, that's the sixth week in a row with an update!
The lack of background may be helping. Let's hope the scene stays a while, so we can enjoy the update speed.

8th page this year so far, last year (2018) had a total of 23 pages (including one on 1st of January, and two on 31st of December)

Nice!
(Where's my game-boy, and where can I get a version of this for it?)
52  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Outsider, SC inspired web comic... on: April 23, 2019, 08:49:49 am
Believe it or not, yesterday page 151 went up.
4th week in a row!

By content not much.
Yes, we Humans do have a nakedness taboo.

On my twitter feed I've been waiting for the tongue to wiggle aroumd and press buttons on the screen....
54  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Outsider, SC inspired web comic... on: April 15, 2019, 09:55:22 am
Nice, page 150 is now up too,
And one panel of the next page was shown in the WIP thread already.
No background to be rendered, so it goes fast.

Apparently the comic always stalled when a new setting appeared, as Mr. Francis makes the setup and then renders it from different angles.... And that always takes a lot of time, reducing his motivation...

Enjoying the current speed for as long as it'll last.
55  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Outsider, SC inspired web comic... on: April 09, 2019, 08:30:18 am
And the next page is up.
http://well-of-souls.com/outsider/outsider149.html

Due to server issues, the forums of that comic are down. The creator is expecting a server rollback, and therefore the page might disappear again for a while, until he brings it up again.
56  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Fan Art! on: April 02, 2019, 10:55:02 am
wow. That realy puts me in an eerie mood.
Well done to teh artist!

Update notification:
http://well-of-souls.com/outsider/outsider148.html

There are two more finished pages, for his patreons already.
For once, Francis decided to not update en bloc, but either weekly, or every two weeks. His forumites hope that'll allow him to finish another page before the stack is out,...
58  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Report only one post on: March 30, 2019, 03:34:25 pm
No, he gets one email for everyreport.
Once you sent an email, he knows he need to come and delete spam. Once he's here he checks all new posts for spam anyway, so no further clogging of his inbox is necessary...

If you are willing but unable to purchase the book, you can read the PDF for free and make a donation via Paypal. That also works if you just want the author to shut up and take your money

Just follow the link, find the paypal button and send him your gratitude.

That would be much easier to fake than the alleged moonlanding...
Just make one of the voyagers send fake signals back to us.....
(or throw a minisatellite with the next launch into a very high orbit).
Boom!
A reason to spend bilions on space programs and space military!
