^^^^^^^^

Agreed completely! Stardock's trademark grab in particular has been eating at me for weeks as unjustifiable horseshit, and you've summed it up better than I ever could.

That... did suddenly turn morbid didn't it?

Going to check this.

For Mormont , Re: Kohr-Ah crew... let me think a sec... (reads what other people have written about this)... okay, my favorite alternative (and I reserve the right to change this in GotP) is that the Kohr-Ah have a 'treatment' applied to any sentient non-Ur-Quan entering their ships -- kind of like a de-lousing spray applied directly to the brain which removes enough higher mental functions to drop the being to a non-sentient-but-still-useful state.

That is (would be?) a major development. It's the first sign of Kohr-Ah taking any slaves other than their talking pets, and brings up many more questions. Are the Kohr-Ah performing mass abductions on worlds they've defeated shortly before scouring them, or is there some other procedure they follow? Are there still Burvixese alive aboard some of their Marauders, given that the Burvix homeworld was the last place they cleansed? Do the Kohr-Ah put much effort into breeding, training, and replacing slaves or are they perpetually grabbing new ones? I'd understand if you wanted to keep these questions unanswered for now.

Thanks for sharing this. It sounds sort of Street Fighter-ish. Wouldn't want it over the melee theme you guys went with. Maybe it would've worked over a cutscene - an Utwig battlegroup ambushing some Kohr-Ah?

What languages do you code in?

!

Ah well, why not. I'm not a programmer by trade. I've only done small amounts of game modding and one high school programming course. So the answer would be "C", because I tortured out how to change UQM. After UQM got online multiplayer working, there was a small competitive scene for super melee. The more people played, the more apparent imbalances with the SC2 ships became apparent under scrutiny. I had all sorts of ideas for what might get melee to be more fair, so one day I just went for it and started trying to edit the game. It was a painful process for a while, but eventually it shaped up.

He definitely can be a lot "louder" than the others.

By the way, are you the same Shiver that does the balance mod?
If you are, I've got some questions about the UQM code.

Yes. Send me a PM if you'd like, although I suspect you're a far better programmer than I am.

Got any proof for this baseless accusation out of fucking nowhere?

I know of only one guy who does it on purpose in the Founder community and he's quite a bit annoying in general to work with.
Hardly constitutes, "a lot".

I took an untenable position, so we really don't need to pursue this further.

WOW! is this not the most pedantic argument in Forum history?

Can we get this discussion B.O.T. or will that acronym offend a robot some place? SHEESH!

Sure, post on-topic if you want. Can't say I feel bad for derailing this thread.

Big oops with that. This has not been a graceful entrance for me. Sorry Kaiser!

FaP is easier to type on a phone without digging up the ampersand.

In English, it's traditional when you list things to go from syllable order (which isn't involved in the mono-syllabled Fred and Paul) and then alphabetical.  Like Dogar and Kazon, it should be Fred and Paul. 

You have an issue with the English language, that's on you.  I'll continue to write FaP or F&P depending on what I'm typing on.

It's like you're calling them the slang term for... ah, nevermind. I can see you don't mean any harm with it.

Is that how your original account got deleted then?

No, I wanted a break. And hen-peck me all you guys want, calling the Star Control leads "FaP" is despicable and deserves to be called out.

Uh, first, welcome to the forum, Shiver.

Second, Death 999 is the global moderator of this forum.  Perhaps before insulting him you might want to learn more about the community here.

Pfft, ha ha ha ha ha

I'm old as dirt around here. This account is a re-reg. I've even traded messages with you on PoNaF a little under the same name. And if Death takes offense, I'm sure he'll have no trouble managing me one way or another.

You know you're reading something from a Stardock cultist when they call the creators of Star Control "FaP". D999, would you be willing to start editing that heinous crap out? I know it's heavy-handed but when I open the "Team" page of the Ur-Quan Masters website it says,

We worship these two higher beings for making the original, legendary game:
Fred Ford
Paul Reiche III



I don't think it's too much to ask that forum-goers not slur their names around here.

Stardock: Origins? I mean, they've definitely got the rights to THAT.

What about Dock Control? or maybe something more like this...


74  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: The Star Control: Origins thread on: March 25, 2018, 11:00:48 pm
If Stardock loses the Star Control trademark, what will we call the game afterward?
75  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: My take on Stardock on: March 25, 2018, 10:54:07 pm
I have seen things Frogboy has said that I disagree with, and things where I think he's perhaps viewing things from an up-too-close perspective, perhaps even a self-serving one,

Perhaps?  Tongue
