1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: "Exploring" planet surfaces, as in N on: April 15, 2004, 12:05:59 pm
Hmm... I don't know, but that 3D-planet thing is probably pretty difficult to make and I don't find any use for that. You could walk on the planet, but what would you do there? Lander is a powerful killing machine, quick ship on the land and you can load minerals there. It's dangerous and needless to walk on the planet when you can always use a lander. I just think that "walking on the planet"-system doesn't fit in the UQM-universe. But, I can't decide for that.

Someone could probably send it by email. It's size is just 22 kb.

Just because I said I haven't mastered everything doesn't mean I don't have the general grasp of things.


I know that. I just meant that even a skilled player with Umgah doesn't make Drone a very good ship. I was just wondering how Drone is a good ship? I'll have to check that computer's tactic again, but I've never seen that Umgah could do bad damage against human player, even with that tactic.

But, I was little meticulous, because the Umgah is only ship that doesn't fit in your sentece:

They are all good in their own ways - some just take more skill to do something with than others.

Captain Smith, Syreen and Umgah are also ships that I don't like to play with at all so they also bring some problems.

You said before that every ships are good in their own ways, but I think that even a skilled player who plays with Umgah Drone WILL have problems playing against a human, even if he's opponent plays with any ship.

But I can't be absolutely sure, because I haven't even tried to practice playing with Drone.

Yeah. That strategy game is pretty nice. Same game with ships of Star Control 2 could be awsome. I don't think that anyone has started to convert Star Control 1 to newer computers. Or have I missed something?

Im pretty sure the definiton of a planet is that it orbits around a star. A moon orbits around a planet.
If its not a planet its definately not a moon.


Moon was bad example. You are right. But planets, asteroids and other rocks, which circle around star are same material.

Is it even a real planet? It's too small. Scientists have said that if they had found Pluto just in couple years ago they wouldn't call it as a planet. It's just too small. Moon, Earth and asteroids, all same material, but only the size matters for what name it's going to have. Sooo... In my opinion UQM doesn't need any more planets even if it's possible to make one.

I posted earlier and said that Probe's alternative ditty is better and so said JWJ too. If you have more alternative ditties and even if you think that some ditty is better than another, why won't you ask from us, which one is better? Then there would be more happy people.

Yes I am, got a problem with that?.


What problem do you mean? That you live in Israel? Why do you think so? Sorry, if you guys don't know what I want to say. My english is so good Wink.

Ah... You live in Israel, Deep_Jiffa? There must be so hot that you are to tired to do anything. You just don't know that here in Finland is so cold, that we have to move to keep us warm. So it's better to go to the readme-file to check things out than sit here cold and writing something. Smiley

Ok thanx... but just for the record, I need to put them (and the other files I want in the remix pack) in the same zip and then to put it in the correct location in the add-ons, right?


As Mark Vera said, in the extra-zip, there is a readme.html-file where is instructions.

By the way, overall remixes are pretty good. Can anyone say when the next pack is coming?

Where can I find the alternitive ditties? Or you talk about the original ones?


http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/sc2/uqm-remix-pack1-extras.zip?download

Download that pack. There you can find alternative ditties which aren't in the Precursor's Super Melee! -pack.

Chenjesu is almost 1:1 tempo to the original if I recall.


Yes, it can be 1:1 tempo to the original, but it still sounds too fast. Original one doesn't sound too fast, but this one does. There's too much weird sounds and then it sounds pretty confusing. It doesn't have tp be 1:1 tempo to the original if it doesn't sound good. But Chenjesu's victory music isn't very good even in the original one.

Valterri, I have to disagree with you on most of the ditties. Are you sure nostalgia isn't clouding your judgement? No offense intended. But a lot of the ones you labeled "bad sound" are clearly much higher quality than the original.


When I said "bad sound", I usually meant that it sounds bad for that race's personality. There could be more "good"-words if there would be used different sounds. One big problem was that many ditties' ending doesn't fit there as well as the original one did.
