136  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / The Slylandro Get A New Look on: November 05, 2007, 05:28:22 pm
Meet Catalog Item #2418-c!
Here is the new and friendly version of the Slylandro probe. This robot really does come in peace, and all it wants is love. [after it breaks you down into your component elements]

This next picture is so stupid that some people might find it amusing.

Does anyone know where to get that Quasi-space music that's not in the remix packs but is in the game? 
I like that music, but I can't find it anywhere.

Oh damn it!!! I can't make it that day because of all the crap I have to do. *NNNNNNNNNNNGH!!!!!* That makes me so *frumple*!
139  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Re: Editing the Star Control 2 Source on: October 30, 2007, 02:59:18 pm
Hey, it could fun to play test this. There could be much joy and merriment, and even a few things to complain about. At last, the full package!
Also, I'd be more than happy to help out with the art, particularly with the aliens.
140  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Fun With Household Items on: October 24, 2007, 10:20:04 pm
Well, I've built a small transmission system from all the old junk in my house. So far I've used it to try and get the Kzer-za and the Kohr-ah to be friends. But all that happened was that I got several death threats, the Kohr-ah started a a heated argument with the Kzer-za on all that Doctrine crap, and  finally my hyperwave caster broke. [I hate that thing; it always breaks when I'm in the middle of something]

Next I'm going to try and translate the Orz language, scare the Spathi, and find a fun way to piss off the Vux.

This was right before their big debate on enslaving/killing things for fun.

141  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Star Control Story on: October 22, 2007, 08:24:13 pm
Hey, heres an idea. Smiley
One of the characters in the story should be a guy who eagerly joined the Vindicator crew and was shortly afterward transfered to an Orz ship. During an ambush by Hierarchy forces [or some other dramatic event] the ship gets separated from the main fleet.

It runs out of fuel, and the poor fellow finds himself stranded in deep space with nothing but Orz for company, and he can't figure out what the hell any of the *fingers* are actually saying.

He can't stand it when  the Orz tell him not to be so *frumple*. He eventually goes insane, and yells at every other member of the ship's crew until he decides that the ship should be blown up. Unknown to the Orz , he finds a way to overload the ship's systems, deactivating everything, including life support. He escapes in an Orz combat suit, but finds out, to his horror, that three of the marines survived. The Orz quickly realize he was responsible and, while screaming *NNNNNNNNGH* in rage, they gun him down with their weaponry.

The flagship arrives at the site a day later [they were searching for the lost Nemesis] and pick up the derelict ship and the remaining Orz, who tell Zelnick what happened. The captain objects to the *dancing*, *dissolving*, and the *sauce*  *enjoyment* that followed [the Orz say that this was the best part], but the Orz threaten to *squeeze the juice*, so he leaves them alone. He sends several subordinates to try and learn more about the incident, but this proves to be as useless as asking the Orz about the Androsynth.
142  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Need some help dealing with the Mycon. on: October 17, 2007, 10:34:23 pm
Have the Syreen already asked you to liberate their ships? Or did Talana just ask for proof of the Mycon's activities after you told her? When I played, I learned the info from the Melnorme and told the Syreen all about it and they wanted me to bring them proof before they promised to attack the Mycon. Did you ask the Melnorme?
143  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Ur-Quan Dreadnought to be re-named "Banana Boat" on: October 17, 2007, 07:54:05 pm
You guys are probably right about the dreadnought stuff. I apologize if I seemed like a bit of a loudmouth jerk.
Next on the agenda: how do you become part of  #uqm-arena? Or is another thread already devoted to this? Or am I missing something?

Edit: All is now functional. Thanks for the help.
144  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Your Nickname's Origin? on: October 17, 2007, 07:32:41 pm
 My nickname actually comes from the Mycon. In the game, when you talk to the Mycon[I'm sure you know this already anyway], they have a bunch of little tendrils that wiggle around constantly. These tendrils wiggle in a motion that makes it seem like the Mycon is dancing to the music. Mycon are fungus[sort of], and they dance, hence the name Dancing Fungus.
145  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Ur-Quan Dreadnought to be re-named "Turdboat" on: October 12, 2007, 05:42:21 pm
 Did you know that you can shoot down projectiles coming at you from long range? Did you know that, besides the Utwig, shields suck? Further, I was playing against a human opponent [in retrospect, I should have mentioned this previously], and although I don't know exactly where his skill level falls in the SC2 community, I know he is better than the crappy AI.

Since this is about the Ur-quan's weaknesses, I guess I should mention that its main problem is that it can't defend itself from rear attacks. This is why, for most ships, you keep the gun-end of the dreadnought toward the enemy. Thus, the best way to take the Ur-quan out is to hit it quickly from behind. The Spathi are the best for this, followed by the Utwig. Also, the Orz marines are good for destroying slow targets, like the Ur-quan.

 What are you talking about? I've held out against many ships well with the dreadnought. My tactic is simple: stay put and blast anyone who comes close with fusion bolts. Few ships can withstand a good, well-aimed barrage. Those that do are the Utwig [best destroyed by figthers], the Chmmr [best destroyed by a "shoot and scoot" method] and the Khor-ah[beatable with a long range dual followed by moving in close to launch fighters]. I've also fought the Ur-quan with all three of those ships, and in practice, all ships, if used well, are easily capable of destroying each other. In one battle, where both sides had an even mix of the above ships, the two sides nearly wiped each other out, and the dreadnoughts were just as important to each side's effort as anything else. The Spathi are also very powerful, but they are better at making a battle last a long time than at actually winning.
147  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: I surrender, finally... on: October 11, 2007, 09:20:17 pm
 You now, this was all pointless because ZEX TELLS you where it is. He SAYS it is in the Lyncis constellation and then he babbles on about the big creature eating the small creature. [or something like that. I didn't catch all of what he said] Maybe you just didn't ask him the right way.
148  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Heretics' trial on: October 11, 2007, 09:06:35 pm
 What about the Mycon afterlife? Wouldn't you love to become part of Juffo-Wup? You might meet every Mycon's secret dream: to expand Juffo-Wup to the perfect Non. And do you know what the perfect Non is? I'll tell you. It is a wet chinchilla. Go now and seek this special place, and experience the wonder of Juffo-Wup.

This is almost like something directly out of Monty Python.
150  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Star Control-related dreams on: October 11, 2007, 07:48:01 pm
 You know, I have strange dreams about these things all the time. The most interesting one happened a while ago. A few days before it, I had been playing Earth 2150 [just before I got SC2 from this site] and I couldn't win this one mission. I stopped to play SC2 for the first time and I had much *buttery enjoyment* for about a week. Then I had a dream where I used a slightly different tactic in 2150 and blew away all opposition. The most striking feature of this dream was that there was a Dynarri [God, I hope I spelled it right] sitting on the table of my room, apparently for no real reason, while tried this new technique. When I woke up, I started up Earth 2150, used the same tactic as that in the dream, and it worked! Is this weird or what?
