1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: NEWS: Toys for Bob go for a new Star Control and need your help (READ!) on: March 21, 2016, 11:02:49 am
Personally ,I wouldn't mind seeing a remake of SC2 (updating to today's gaming standards) rather than a sequal. A remake could have everything we love ,updated, and still have totally new added content (without getting too carried away). Landing on planets could envolve a "lunar lander" style option. The universe could be gentely scrambled for a unique game experience every time. Many new quests could be added as an addition to the classic game and it's story/timeline. Basicly take what rocks about the existing SC2 and make it better. The story, the universe, the 2D meele, etc...

SC3 is a perfect example of what could go wrong with a sequal and should be avoided at all costs IMO.
I'd rather see a sequel. Changing Star Control II (Reskinning it) feels to me what George Lucas does with the Star Wars series, changing a bit, some good, some bad, but the original is still the best

Look at the stardock forums for the status of the new StarControl game: http://forums.stardock.com/forum/1053

Note that this game will be a reboot and will NOT have anything that Fred and Paul have created, and as such is an alternative timeline. This is to keep the door open for Fred and Paul to be able to return to their work and pick up where they left off. From what I gather, at least.

Is this Forum:
1. Alive and Well
2. Breathing its last
3. Dead
4. Other (Please Specify)

The forum is neither. It's sleeping or sleep-walking. Tongue

Any updates on P6014?  The original website is kinda quiet.

thanks!

Yep it's starting back up again, and we're looking for authors/artists/programmers to join the writing team!

It lives? AHW YEEE!!!

Well, you can't save them. They are goners. For good. As soon as you leave the system, the remaining battle groups are going to disappear.

PLEASE SOMONE HELP when i install the game the voices in the game arent working and i have downloaded them and put them in addons and packages folders!

The game that you can play right now is out of date in terms of version and it is merely a proof of concept at best and a tech demo. There are many voice acting bits missing save for a few, and if you want voices you'd have to do them yourself and have auto-tune help you out with how it sounds.

We've not had an update from anyone involved in a long time, so we don't really know what the status is of the game, but I assume many assume it to be abandoned or put on ice for now.

Is this project getting any sort of update? Shocked It has been silent for quite some time, it would be a real shame to see it die like this :<
8  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Ur-Quan Masters HD: Beta 1 Released! on: July 18, 2015, 11:29:38 am
hello! I'm a fan of Star Control for Argentina and I like the game since 2001 when I play it for the first time. Recently I finish the Ur-Quan Masters in hd and I really love it. Well, I have advanced knowledge of English, and I offer to translate it to Spanish so more people can have access to this great game and especially the HD version.   Smiley

If I recall correctly, the entire thing i open source, so just go for it. Smiley

I see. My main concern is the people here who host their mods packages, UQM HD etc. who might have their items compromised because of this. :/
10  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / SourceForge injecting adware/malware into installers on: June 04, 2015, 01:31:54 pm
A friend of mine told me that sourceforge has started injecting adware/malware (depending on how you see it) into projects without the authors permission or even knowledge. From what I know this forum uses sourceforge a lot for hosting mods, the remake of UQM, the HD Remale etc.. Not so sure about Project6014 (which has been silent for quite some time now).


Here's an article about the issue: http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2015/06/sourceforge-locked-in-projects-of-fleeing-users-cashed-in-on-malvertising/

From what the article says it's only affecting projects that has lost traffic, but there is no telling if they have done so to small projects or projects that don't get updates anymore or even regularly updated projects.

About 2:20 in and shivers went down my spine. Well done. I love it!

Ah, no. I'm not. I lack any kind of useful skill other than some requirement and testing skills. I'm absolute bollocks with programming...
14  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Project 6014 Ur-Quan Masters mod on: January 20, 2015, 11:00:33 pm
A lot has changed since the release ...
Okay, like what? I'm curious.

Wasn't it the way the Chmmr Explorer was handled? In the demo at the end, the ship is surrounded and, I assume, damaged and crashlands on the surface of the planet where you enounter the Black Orb-thing. Do correct me if you know I'm talking out of my butt or something.
15  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Project 6014 Ur-Quan Masters mod on: January 16, 2015, 11:13:40 am
By the looks of it, the demo is obsolete in terms of story. A lot has changed since the release if I do know my stuff correctly (which I doubt). If anything you can try out some of the new ships in Super Melee.
