Freakin' Bizarre Idea
« on: May 19, 2006, 10:59:19 pm »

Just downloaded and played UQM over the last week... first time I'd played SC2 in YEARS.  Ye cats I love this game.

Does anybody else think the game would be much, much funnier if you swapped the images for the Syreen and the VUX?

Also, does anybody from the old Star Control Writers' Collective post 'round these parts?  Does that still exist anywhere?

I think it'd be hilarious to replace all the Kor-Ah conversation with the Syreen conversation, and switch the Ur-Quan theme with the Pkunk music.

I think this is why people shouldn't take heavy

Sometimes an outrageous idea is funny, sometimes not.

Hey, I know I'd laugh if the VUX high commander started flirting with me.

That would really mess up dialogue.  Imagine a cowardly Spathi telling me about the Eternal Doctrine...

Make the Spathi have the empire that they always should have had by replacing the Kzer-Za with the Spathi animation Tongue

Heh... something I did was replace the .WAV file that the Pkunk play when they rez.  Instead of hearing the hallelueigh (however the hell you spell it) chorus, you hear the far more appropriate "BEWARE!! I live!" from Sinistar.
