Hi!

Propably no one remembers me and that's possibly very good thing. What I mean, that when I tried Ur-Quan masters at first time I didn't quite like it and criticized the game here at forums. I tried to be as civilized as possible but some just pissed off because of me.

Well, I wen't to visit my home and see my little brother. He was playing Ur-Quan masters again and I noticed that I was horribly wrong about the game. So I installed the game to my computer again and Im intending to try it again and so far it's been very nice. Odd how my opinions changed. Maybe I was just too lame at the first time?

Ps. How can I buy more crew? Damn..

Good to hear you've changed your mind. Although, you have to admit that it was a pretty bad idea to post about how much you dislike the Ur-Quan Masters on the UQM forums.

But, what's past is past. Welcome back.

Aargh I had to delete those posts. So embarrassing.. Sad

Always when I check my old posts I feel like I was dork. I just wonder if Im ever going to change.

EDIT: And it was a bad idea to post here about UQM. I've learned through years that I sometimes shouldn't let those angry words out of my mouth and I should keep them as my own business.

Umm.... Halleck - You really don't need to bring that up. If a person says that they have acted like a idot, then you don't need to rub it in their face....

Anyway Perky, to answer your question. You go to the starbase and then the ship-building place. (the place where you can order a new earthlling cruiser or such) Anyway - You then select the ship you want to fill with crew and fill 'her up!

You know, you're right. I probably shouldn't have linked to that, it was really more of me being sore about something entirely unrelated. No offense meant.

I've taken the link out of my post, why don't you do the same for the quote of my post in yours, and we'll be rid of this.
I won't change the text of my post, though. I was being kind of snotty, and I apologize. What I won't do is go back and pretend I didn't say it.

It was an interesting debate while it lasted though.

So far it's been nice, althought pretty full of just gathering recources.. I managed to get my ship full of thrusters and turning jets so the job is much more easier. Im not saying that fuel shouldn't be in that game but sometimes it's just annoying to fetch fuel all the time and spend half of the earned money to it. Smiley

Yup, it's getting better all the time

Fuel will become less of an issue once you can access quasispace portals. I'm not going to tell you how to ge tit, but the Spathi can give you a lead.

Mmm, old games are quite the opposite of new games, in many cases. Old games may not look very good, and can seem boring at first, but then they grow as you play. New games look good, but after a short time you realize how shallow they are. Not much point having depth when you can sell on looks. It's almost like girls...

Which is why there are those of us who take old games and remake them with newer graphics and such, on our freetime.


After all, should not these great games by remade so that even the shallow may gaze upon their perfection and lose their vanity in the purity of old?

And should not the original designs be themselves preserved in their entirety, for the sake of the youth, though they may be lost in the glow of fresh, yet flavorless creations?

Back to the game.

Uh...well...perhaps that would work if you sent them through a rip in space time, back 20 years ago or so.

Also, another possible little dream, is that if a freeware remake of a game became really popular, it might earn itself a contract with a commercial, proffesional game developer.
