1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Sliplets of our masters, please? on: August 26, 2020, 06:21:34 am
Ok, long story short there is someone I know who would love this game if they ever tried it but they happen to be very.... stubborn to trying it.
I have looked and searched and looked some more for some snippets of the first few lines the Kzer-Za say to the player- or some other non-spoiler (so defo not the korah) lines.
I think the megaMod images + sound would really hype them up.
TL;DR I want a quick clip of some places in the game that showcase some of the best lines or art that is also spoiler free .
He really likes good writing.  Any good ideas I could shove in his face?

I did not want to give away direct hints.
And for then Pkunk hints you do need to visit them several times, which is otherwise a time-waster.


Does she know about Katana/Tanaka, and how to handle them when she visits them?

She just let her ship die at first. I sort of nudged her at the ESC key. On that note, she didnt even know that she could escape battles.

For the beast, ZEX gives you the hint that the constellation is something like "a snake that has swallowed the beast." And that the name is close to "Linch-nas-ploh." This is easier to follow if you have a starmap which shows the constellation shapes and connections, which was included on paper the original game.

The riddle was all but impossible for her I am afraid.  She simply had no way of knowing or finding out about the beast.
I didnt want to give that map since it has spoilers. Tho it would not of have helped much. She went to constellations like "hyades" and the ones near the Yehat since IRL those are snakes.


And she died to the death march- Really enjoyed the game and will try again so fingers crossed she can beat it this time! ^^

She says thanks! Smiley
I dont think she got that diologe from the pkunk yet (at this point they are moving to the yehat).

As for the beast, I saw this on the wiki
Quote
The Captain agreed, and finally heard of a Beast that might fit this description in his dealings with the Thraddash, finally learning that the yellow star of "Linch-Nas-Ploh" was the Delta star of the constellation humans had named Lyncis.

So I have projected this game onto my gf, as I have to my brother and sister before her.

She has gotten real far in the game without figuring out the Shofixti- more specifically, the whereabouts of the beast. As I understand it its one of the first quests.
Apparently the thradash tell you where the beast is but she has sent them to the war and after that she became their master and still nothing about a beast (or the aqua helix).
As a new player not using the wiki, how would one find the beast and for the matter the helix?

There is a rather massive list of interactions and stuff that I have found that could be addressed when it comes for making better newcomer experience but this one is a particularly perplexing one.

Thanks for the replies in advance! Smiley
5  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: What is the correlation of ur-quan and Babylon 5? on: July 13, 2020, 02:18:05 am
Ok thanks.
perhaps when urquan3 comes out and if it gets more attention this might become an embarrassing truth to the show makers.
Tho fred and paul have said that the next game will be aimed more at those from the urquan masters. So maybe not so much mainstream attention
6  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / What is the correlation of ur-quan and Babylon 5? on: July 10, 2020, 01:57:34 am
I know Fred and Paul have said that Babylon takes from them, but I cant find anyone pointing out the episodes or plots or what have you.
Anyone know what this is about?

Yeah sadly i know we cant fix the past- tis why we learn from it.
Will just hope for the best in the future. Thanks for filling me up to date  Cool

Yah thanks, got my answers.

On a different note, has there been any talk about the games sexist attributes and if they were gonna amend this in future games?
its the only flaw that bugs me to such an extent about uqm

Hello there!!

I am a new member but I have played ur-quan for years.
I have only just found out about this- any any other- ur-quan community.


I have played this game only ever with the base stuff, except with some different music maybe. I saw the ur-quanHD a while ago and disagreed with  parts of it. The mega mod, however,  I did like the look of but anything that did not get modded by it was then instead used by the HD ver.  I have some burning questions here, can anyone help?

TL;DR I am a long time fan and only just found that other people exist. I have questions xd

  • For said "megamod" is there a way to have it but for anything that is not  modded to be the vanilla and not be the HD mod?
  • Can I buy the steam starcontroll 1/2 and still use all mods and stuff on those games?
  • How can I help right now? I love and have loved this game so much
  • When using any mods do I need to start a new save?
  • When it comes to the next game, can someone explain? I have seen the post that they have made on the legal stuff but I dont see a solid conclusion.

Sorry for my ignorance,
