YAY! Thanks Glory Device.

Now I feel like an idiot, but I can play the game.

Yikes, what a maroon! (me)

Problem solved.

Sorry for the confusion. I have 6,000 RUs. At present, I have 52 credits.

Yes, I've been unloading my minerals. Hence the 6,000 credits. Are you guys saying that I need to obtain the technology from the Melmorne to buy storage bays and ion blasters? I thought that stuff was readily available?

Just to ensure we're on the same page:

I just highlight the empty ship slot, then use the Enter key to cycle through choices? Correct?


TIA again for the assistance.

Thanks for the info. Although it has been a very long time since I played the game, I was aware of that. I've collected lots of minerals. I've traded with the Melmone. Just to re-cap:

I have 6,000 credits.
I have lots of empty space in the ship.
I cannot buy a rear gun, nor a storage pod. Those options are not available to me, despite having plenty of space and plenty of cash.

Any ideas on what is going on? A bug? Something I've done wrong?

I'm using Win 7, pro, 64 bit. I'm also runing it on an XP pro 32 bit box, with the same issues. Must be me, but I can't work out what it is.

OK, I haven't played Star Control for about 15 years. The old brain cells may be a bit rusty. I apolgise if I am asking a really dumb question.

When I try to outfit my ship with extra stuff (a rear facing weapon, extra storage pods) those options don't seem to be available to me. I can fit fuel pods, crew pods, turning jets and those red things on the side). Even with 6,000 credits, I can't fit any storage pods. Am I missing something obvious.

TIA
