Indeed Krulle, you have valid points.

I’m new in here. I really got to know that there is a ongoing dispute just few weeks back and I have been trying to visualise who is correct and who is not. I just think that it seemed so obvious that Stardock’s approach was correct so it seemed a bit harsh to see the “other” side so strong in here.

I definitely am with you on Elenstans approach and would really much like to see that level of discussion promoted on this matter, he is not taking a side without really looking into it and even though he might not be a lawyer, he sure is in a position to give an opinion. As I would think I am. And everyone else.

Maybe in the end I was disappointed just overall on returning to such a great game which really changed my thinking of games and seeing that it is under a (sorry to say) childish dispute. I think both sides should have handled the whole matter more adult.

Maybe this community could just focus on bringing back the project on building a sequel as open source ? Smiley

Yeah.. I’ll just quietly sit and wait what happens on this and enjoy some Ur Quan Masters on the way Wink

Hi All,

I again want to hand my support to frogboy on this matter. I mean if you look at the case from a far, think on how would you feel on the whole matter.

I mean thinking on how P&F handled the whole starting of a new game,  knowing that Stardock had spent millions on their new game and as far as I have seen, they (Stardock) were very open towards P&F on the progress and development of their game. Stardock gave a lot of good options on how they could have proceeded together, which were declined.

After years of doing that, I personally would be very frustrated and I really have to raise a hat for you on keeping it so calm in here.

And yes l, I might be new to this forum and I don’t have any legal experience. But this is my opinion.

Really hope that you guys win the case and get to develop a kick ass game.

Moro Tommi,

Ei tätä varmaan Suomeksi löydy Smiley ?

For the rest, sorry couldn’t resist to put it in Finnish.

Ah, sorry Krulle.

Indeed, i think it might have been a bit odd to have it as Krull:  Wink

Thx Serosis, i sure will. After the kids are older im really looking forward to making more time to get involved in modding. So i think i will have more questions in 10 to 15 years Smiley

This is my second post on this forum and i just cant stay out of this conversation.
I have to apologize already, since i haven't even read this whole thread with its dozens of replies, but after reviewing a lot of items on all sides. I have to say that initially as i started to again follow SC2 items and got back to playing the immediate response on all of this fuzz was to support P&F fully on their case. That was the initial feeling.

Now after looking into things for the last few weeks, i find it ridicilous on their part. Stardock and brad has been as open and supportive with them as someone can be. After seeing how P&F have actually responded and been involved in all of this, i sadly have to say that the immerse respect for them has been vanished. I feel that even if they would eventually get something done on a new SC game, the shine on the game has been brought down by their acts.

After saying this, i really want to give a supportive hand to frogboy and their insanely good looking Star Control game ! I am really looking forward on getting to test your game. You have truly managed to keep the old feeling on it and still update things for a 2018 feeling.

There. Said it.

Hey All !

After years and years I finally came back to this game. As I would assume for me and for the most of you l, SC2 was a gamechanger in games back when released. I remember going thru the attached map so many times that in the end it was all torn up..

Now have been reading a lot on the forums and everywhere on the hopefully upcoming new games. Hope that everything gets settled and everyone (old and new) involved in making these great games gets the credit they deserve.

Just wanted to say hi and hope that my kids will grow soon so that I would also have time for the new games Wink (it was so well put Krull)

Good job everyone and especially thx for the mega mod, works perfect!
