1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Project6014 demo release on: October 26, 2010, 02:24:14 pm
My apologies if I came across as overly defensive. You found something disagreeable and so I was trying to reassure you that what is in the demo game play-wise is not representative of how 95% of the final game will be played.

Trouble is, game game play is intertwined with story to a higher degree than the original so I cant really reveal all the cool gameplay aspects that we're planning without giving away story spoilers.

There is my delemma!

It's likely that it was the same-old "text sucks" problem when having a debate, Cedric.  So thanks, but I think it was a misunderstanding - I'm definitely a sucker for the explore and horde "dungeon-crawl" type of gameplay so perhaps that might explain my feelings. (And my addiction to Minecraft, gah!) Smiley  I am very much looking forward to WHATEVER form of Project6014 is released in future.  This is the closest the Star Control 2 fan-base has come to seeing some sort of proper sequel to the game, so perhaps I'm not the only one nearly frothing at the mouth to play this!  And yes, no spoilers wanted or needed. Wink  Good luck!

Thanks Megagun, though I'm a touch disappointed by the defensiveness of these comments.  Was I at any point berating or otherwise making personal attacks towards Cedric and his team?  I merely expressed an opinion, and if the final game still doesn't have mineral gathering then, well, so be it.  I simply hope that this will be kept in mind as the team work to balance the other RU-gathering methods to make up for the lack of "mining", which I do miss.

I'm interested to know where you may have read about what kind of gameplay the final version of this game will or will not include.

Perhaps I should have stated that I was comparing the P6014 alpha's gameplay mechanics to those from SC2.

And The Chmmr have not given you this vessel so you can swan about getting minerals. They've given it to you to investigate something

Fair enough, but it seems a touch baffling and disagreeable to chop off a lump of gameplay in this way.  Undecided

It seems that fighting ships and giving biological data to the Melnorme are the two ways this alpha allows one to earn RU.  Better than nothing!

Cedric... is there any possibility of getting mineral gathering back in any time soon?  Currently the alpha has a lot of nice story, but the gameplay is limited to "pick somewhere at random, talk to aliens, scan planets... oh we have to go back for fuel now".  I know this is supposed to be an alpha, but a version with mineral gathering would at least bring back some of that oh-so-compelling loot aspect, and give us a lot more to do while you guys work towards a 1.0 Cheesy

As for what is there so far, it's almost like it's 1993 and playing SC2 for the first time again.  i.e. EXCELLENT WORK!  (I might be able to contribute some music btw... have a look at http://www.casimirsblake.co.uk )

Definitely sorted now, thanks Aymes!

Having trouble finding Gblik again though... (I'm up to the racing dogs)

Still nothing, Aymes.  I have checked my spam folder...
9  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Pioneer, a top down shooter rpg released! on: February 11, 2009, 06:19:20 pm
I sent an email, should be on its way...

An hour in, still enjoying it.  The planet sequences get me scratching my chin: it's a challenge but I'm not finding it as fun as the space sections, nor the lander sections in SC2.  Perhaps, with an upgraded lander, they become a little easier to handle.  My main issue is that they are sloooooow going.

Paid.  Just waiting for my registration key now...

I signed up here to POST about this game, seeing as I'm a long-time SC2 nut (first played it when I was about 15 I think... my local Blockbuster JUST HAPPENED to have the SC1 and 2 CD collection in store... on a Sunday.  A day of fate...) ... I'm just off to BUY this game now.  It's the closest thing to a spiritual sequel for Star Control 2 I've come across.  It's a rather different sort of game play - asteroids is the major influence - but the story is straight out of the SC2 school of sci-fi.

So I'm not surprised the author has posted here.  Sir, I suggest posting this at http://www.rockpapershotgun.com as well - they appreciate these indie games a lot!

The MOD-doskpop-styled music is getting me all teary-eyed for my SC2-loving youth too  Grin
