31  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Star Control Comic on: July 10, 2007, 06:16:30 am
I've started making a comic about the battle between the Syreen and the Mycon.



Tell me what you think. There is another one coming.

thats great.
i wonder how she would be without those sad eyes.
Is this better?





That would be the motion blur of the background stars.
It seems to be going the wrong direction, so it looks like rain.

That’s a sweet picture. But why does it look like it is raining in space?

Well I decided to draw a syreen, Anime style!

You deleted the entire thread and recreated it just to get rid of my post?  Interesting.

Here is an earlier cat thread

You are right. They should not be defended under any circumstances.
Yes! I see your point! By not defending them you allow all the imbeciles in the world to reveal themselves as who they truly are; and they will all be ridiculed! Shiver you are a genius!
38  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Dictator Bush? on: May 31, 2007, 10:05:52 pm
Seriously, I don't even see how anyone can defend him at times.
Why should his actions be defended? Every single accusation I seen leveled at him have range from peoples’ misunderstanding of the law to unsubstantiated claims to incoherent ravings of lunatics and even outright lies. I have not seen anyone actually have proof of a crime. And you know if there was any proof of actual wrong doing congress would have already started the impeachment process (since it is controlled by the democrats).

Congress can’t "shoot" it down since it’s an Executive order. 

Anyways what’s the big deal? Clinton had the same thing and so did presidents before him. 
40  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Terms of surrender: The New Alliance. on: May 14, 2007, 05:43:29 pm
I would probably thank the new alliance once it reaches my territory for freeing me. Since there was no choice but too serve the ur-quan. I’ve always viewed that an agreement made under direst is invalid from the beginning. And I can see why they would pick battle thralls instead of being fallow slaves. You get too keep your fleet and not have your world stripped of technology.

But if I had to surrender I would pick the pkunk since they have a forgive and forget attitude.

(note: topic totally stolen from BioSlayer. Sorry about that, but it seemed fun to look at things from a different angle  Tongue )
No problem at all.

41  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Respect my ass on: May 06, 2007, 11:14:32 pm
I don't hate Christians.
I didn’t mean to say you did. I was just saying Christian hating is quite common and generally ignored.
42  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Respect my ass on: May 06, 2007, 09:12:29 pm
To hell with political correctness.
But hating Christians is politically correct. Even Jesus knew his followers would be hated. I’m not saying I like to being hated, but that’s the way it is. If you haven’t noticed the world has been trying to extinguish or pervert Jesus’ teachings since he spoke them. While a bunch of religious nonsense like evolution and global warming are taught at schools like they are scientific fact; which they are not.


I’ll pray for you.
43  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: New version of my game out. on: May 03, 2007, 09:14:30 pm
Well the main reason is when I started this project I was fairly new too programming so I didn’t know a whole lot (This was my first attempt at making a game). This caused me to make certain mistakes in the design. Ones that make the code hard to maintain and work with. Like all my objects inherit from objects in the physics engine it uses. So any changes to the parent classes break the child classes.

This is compounded by the fact that I completely rewrote my physics engine (because it was first attempt at making an engine). And the rewrite is in no way backwards compatible.

So to continue working on this project I would have to make a huge conversion effort to the new engine.

I also use multiple threads yet most of my code is not thread safe.

Also the game started off with a sound design but I made it too restrictive and have too many hacks to make things work.

Ultimately I don’t have enough time or motivation to work on this project any more.

I am working a less ambitions game in my free time based on my new physics engine. And maybe I’ll restart/rewrite this project later, but right now ReMasters is postponed indefinitely.

And Lukipela is right I learned a lot from this. Enough to realize my old code sucks.



If you are interested in my physics engine's rewrite you can use the links in my signature.

If you just want some eye candy; here is a demo video:

Well I have decided to abandon this project. I’ll post my reasons later if there is anyone interested in them.

The Orz are extremely hard to remix, too.
The orz remix is done.
