Oh, wow. Things seemed so hopeless just a few years ago, not only for Star Control, but also for space sims in general. Now, so much good has happened since then that I cannot even keep track of it all! We had the Star Control reboot made by Stardock, Star Control HD, Project 6014, and now we may be seeing an official sequel, made explicitly for fans like us?

Life is good, my fellow forum-goers.  Grin

I for one would be thrilled by a Star Control 2 total conversion mod for Galactic Civilizations 2. Those are two of my favorite games of all time!

If you don't want to complicate things, it could just be a dialogue triggered from Hayes that shows that neither is happy about the other being there that doesn't actually have a mechanical consequence. "Captain, the Orz and Arilou ships have placed themselves on opposite sides of the starbase, and we can feel them glaring at one another right through us. The Arilou insisted that I pass on their warning that the Orz are not to be trusted and that we should break off alliance with them immediately for our own safety, while the Orz on the station have been stomping around in a huff muttering things about wanting to 'dance' with the 'quick babies' that are 'jumping in front'. Why they'd want them as dance partners when they obviously hate each other, I don't know. Maybe it's one of those love-hate things?"

That really sounds like something Hayes would say, actually.

Maybe you could claim that the stored ships are in suspended animation to explain away potential issues with the captains.

That's a bit of a cop-out.

Well let's think, the following I think are the most important attributes a Spathi could have according to their line of thinking and our conversations with them

The Ability to protect themselves (The Shell from the clam)
The Ability to hide (I would argue that clams hide themselves in the sand but let's assume this is a Dravatz trait)
The Ability to run (That must be a Dravatz trait)
To be rich, powerful and surrounded with women and weapons to fend off any attackers that may hurt their paradise (Clearly they learned this trait from me)

So assuming that last trait is based on me and was mentioned by accident, and assuming the Dravatz are not a sea life form like the clam. It is likely a fast and clever creature that is skilled at evading predators with a thin body and small stature.

+1

You have solved the mystery! Excellent work for you, friend, and for a prize you get a bunker for protection. (Complementary machine gun nests will be included later)

I would think the shell to be one of the best qualities of the clam, as it helps it defend itself. The Spathi do not appear to have shells, though.

You are obviously not the sharpest knife in the drawer, so I fully expect you to disregard this post and continue the circus act that you have chosen to call "giving us advice". Nevertheless, here it goes. Perhaps it will provide someone else reading this thread some amusement.

I'm done with this site anyway, I only came here for a couple questions.

I think he's composing a sentence-looking thing of words he doesn't understand, like: "illegally", "internet", "everything", "technically", "coding", "rights", "officially", "suing"

I think it means I was right to be cautious and confused and that you can suck a cock.

What happened to being done with this site? This only confirms my belief that you are trolling.

Besides, when I read your posts on this topic, the word "cautious" is the last thing that comes to mind. There are only so many times you can claim ignorance. After being repeatedly rebuked, you have not ceased your highly obnoxious behavior. Every rude remark you receive at this point is entirely warranted. In fact, I commend the others responding to your nonsense for their patience.

In other words, you are wrong. Dead wrong. The English language as a whole is insignificant to describe just how wrong you are. Even if I did take the effort to do so in full, the meaning would be lost in transmission. Rather, I take solace in the fact that people like you are rare. Very few trolls achieve the level of comical ignorance that you have.

Guys, I think we've been trolled.

That has got to be it, right? No one can possibly achieve this level of stupidity under natural circumstances. I simply refuse to believe it. Either darthinvaderzim is trolling, or he has suffered a terrible head injury. I can think of no other logical explanation to his irrational behavior.

Here is another something for all of you bipedal ultronomicons to ponder, as I am apt to introduce.

Fwiffo mentions the Spathi have the best qualities of both the clam and the Dravatz, which is not native to our world. Who or what are the Dravatz?

I have one memory from when I was 3. I was running in circles. That's about it. It is not much of a memory, but at least it's something.
11  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Star Control 3's Stolen Dialogs on: March 14, 2012, 07:52:27 pm
Star Control 2 also had a non-standard game over, but it was fairly obvious. You just have to talk to the Ur-Quan and surrender. I did that once.
12  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Kickstarter? on: March 14, 2012, 06:44:05 am
Star Control 2 is a cult classic! I think it could work.

I just played Super Melee in Google Chrome! That is very nice indeed. However, the loading times are quite long.
14  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: UQM port for Chrome (using Native Client) on: March 04, 2012, 02:41:45 am
This is a great idea! I would even go so far as to call it brilliant!
15  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Project 6014 – Ur-Quan Masters mod on: March 04, 2012, 02:40:30 am
Have any of you considered the fact that toys for bob may in fact be The Emperor and Darth Vader? See they must belong in the same universe then :p

The ISD is awesome. Search your feelings; you know it to be true.
