And actually, if I read Dancing Fungus' comments right, he means to also remake sc3
Correct. If no one else is going to do it, we might as well give it a try.

Maybe remaking SC2 and seeing how well that sells to the before mentioned "idiots" will give TFB the incentive to produce a sequel . I mean from reading the posts throughout this forum im sure that everyone here would purchase a remake of SC2 and would also force friends, family and even complete strangers to buy it. ( Hell I'd dress up as a Utwig and try and sell copies door to door).

The thing is though i can see this going nowhere and me crying myself to sleep. Whoever it was who suggested that if they don't make a sequel we do it  (sorry i can't remember who it was) has the right idea, i mean we could start our own company from the variety of people posting in here. We have a variety of coders and programmers, we have artists and graphics designers, we have hundreds of testers who i'm sure will work for free, i'm sure we have some voice actors amongst us and the musicians are already here, what else could we possibly need?

um yeah STARCON FOREVER!!!! *runs and hides*

We cannot make SC2 sequel alone!
If we make something will be game that looks like sc2...
This is not small project ... TFB only can make this!

Art must be in one style ...
Music must be in this great SC 2 style ...
Storyline must be similar like sc2

If we start with freelance without concept art that is approved from one designer ... everything will be different...

When i start with this idea for Sequel maybe i wasn't so clean .... my English is no so good and sometime is hard to express myself, my ideas and feelings...

Will try to explain in few lines ...

The best possible scenario is:
TFB make a contract with Activision and start new sequel with the same idea, feeling, music, storyline... GREAT!!!

Other way is: If contract drop off our hope for SC2 is doomed ...
The only way to see another SC2 in this situation is:

a) TFB make this game alone with their own finances ..... (is hard)

b)We the real fans (if we are.. but this can be easy proof) start to collect money and give them to TFB for that new SC
Help them if is necessary with art work...

But i'm not sure that WE ARE THE REAL FANS ready to make this ...
Is very easy to stay here in that forum speak and cry for SC4  but HARD TO COLLECT MONEY ... SC4 will remain only dream without money!!!

I will stop to write because i'm so disappointed...

Well, something that might be feasible (though with a probability so small that it's basically impossible) would be just paying Paul Reiche III 200,000$ to do the design part, and get the fans to do the rest. Except that 200,000$ isn't much, and I'm not sure how willing Paul would be to make such a sacrifice. Also, Activision would probably be very upset with Paul temporarily leaving TFB to work on a personal project...

Alright BatkatA, since this is all such a passion to you, how about you be our emissary? Find a way to contact TFB and see if they would be willing to help us. Maybe find out what they are up to. You yourself said we should be doing something other than babbling at each other in a forum. 
It is all hopeless anyway, but why not try? Right? I would do it myself but this is your idea and I have other things to do anyway.

Wait wait wait...

I say .. if contract with Activision collapse TFB are free to make with SC everything right... or i miss something???

TFB need help from US with petition. This petition is important for contract with Activision ...
If Activision reject to publish SC4 TFB maby will search for another publisher or will leave this idea for new SC...

If this happend the only one hope for SC is if we collect money and give them to TFB to start the project ...
I think Publishers will be concerned from SC if they see some progress, some demo or whatever ...

I think there is nothing more that i can say ...
I'm not sure is this possible really WE fans to collect some serious SUM ...
If we need 200 000$ only for the idea from Paul ... then ... HUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM!!! A SERIOUS PROBLEM ...

I want SC4 so much that i'm ready to make half artwork!!! Smiley))

OK..... I just found this site today! I played SC2 back in well a long time ago, But it has IMPACTED MY LIFE! Up till maybe 6 or 7 years ago I used to play this game all the way through at least once a year! Unfortunately my PC crashed and I upgraded. Now I have a hard time getting the game to run correctly. (it looks weird like in tandy not in VGA mode?) The sound and timing is all wrong too. But I digress.... The main reason I registered and posted a message is because I am shocked and thrilled to see such a LARGE group of fanatics as crazy about this game as me!  My solution or request is to have the original SC2 ported to the X-Box 360 Arcade. I believe this would generate considerable revenue for whomever brings the idea to the table.  I mean they emulated games like Arkadian Warriors and Doom 1!  SC2 would rank on the most downloaded instantly!  Those that don't have or know about X-box 360's arcade, it allows you to download nostalgic classic games dating back to nearly the same time as SC2. Like I read elsewhere ==>  FORGET a sequel for now! Remaster the BEST game ever created and allow a new generation to experience it!

There's a new post over at toysforbob.com..

They want to buy a huge world map, and then pin Star Control players' photographs on it, for various reasons...

Actual photographs or just goofy pictures representing people in those places?

He wants real photos of us, preferably with Star Control-related stuff in the image as well.  We've got nothing to hide, and this is a very creative and interesting way to convince Activision.

I've always wanted to know what it would be like to have my photo on a wall in the TFB offices... Tongue
