Random Rambelings and questions of a newbie.
« on: June 27, 2010, 05:44:17 pm »

 Cheesy

So does anyone here think there will ever be a sequel to Star Control 2 that isn't crappy? (lol, SC3 copied so much text!)

Because from what i can read it isn't likely...


Another question, Would a game that is fun like star control 1/2 have to actually be a continuation of the starcon universe, or could it be different game entirely? (With The Starcon level of depth & fun in the ways it was)

one last thing, as a rough first attempt(2 hours), how is this model

Get out.

You have an... interesting way of dealing with new people. If that post counts as trolling to you...

I have two words to say: "Encyclopedia Dramatica". THAT is trolling. Kerr's post... well, I guess you could classify him as annoying or spamming, but he is definitely not trolling. I see no attempt to evoke an emotional response, which is usually what trolls try to do. In fact, I'd say that you are the one being a troll here, if anyone is.

There's a freaking 5000 x 5000 image right there and you don't see a problem with it? Get yourself some standards.

Shiver, what the heck is wrong with you? It's a big image, in a spoiler tag. Was it not initially spoiler tagged? I don't see a modification note or moderator message.

Kerr... I'm really sorry. Welcome to UQM forums.

Look at the image. Read his post history. Actually read it, do not skim.


You know what, never mind. I forgot how protective Star Control's forums are of its rampaging trolls. Silly me for wandering back in thinking there was still something worth returning for.

Avoiding the issue of whether or not Kerr is a troll:

In SC, the cruiser's nacelles go down not up. This is Star CONTROL not Star TREK.

I couldn't change the zoom, but whatever.
For the model itself - first it is quite different from the in-game "specifications" here - http://star-control.com/sc2/ships.php# -->Cruiser
Next - the ammunition. I didn't really liked the way they stick out from under tha saucer, it makes the whole ship in danger of exploding on one enemie's lucky shot to the warhead. I liked the vent-ports on the nacelles, but think the ones that look like turrets on the sides would look better like the ones on the top and the bottom, the diagonals.

Where was that pic in the game?

I used the pics from melee...  Huh

i'll redo the bridge entirely later probably, and the nacelles can be changed in 30 seconds...

I cant tell much from a fixed top down melee pic lol...

Why is everyone so touchy  Roll Eyes


And, yes i know how to use the
(click to show/hide)
tag, in fact, some forum admins will get mad at you  for posting pics without spoilers. (if they skew the forum table)

People take me too seriously .

HOLY ****! Shiver deleted his account! Shocked Huh

He's been here for fully 7 years! And he ended it because he feels that this new user is a... troll?!

I don't even know what emoticon to use! None of them would properly represent the shock of seeing that Shiver has deleted his account so swiftly and without warning, for no particularly good reason. This is... My eyes are going to fall out of my head!! O_O

EDIT: OK, now that I've recovered from that shock...

That image is from some form of in-game database (I don't know what it's called) in Star Control (not SC2, just Star Control, i.e. SC1). They don't exist anywhere in SC2. But, if you look closely on the SC2 title screen, you can see an image of a Cruiser moving away from you (it's hard to see in UQM because it's behind the menu, but you can still see it). Hope that helps.

He Deleted his account?

wow... uhh....

Wait, why would he think of me as a troll?

I thought he was calling himself a troll and joking around
Ha ha hey look guys, I'm TROLLING the FORUM, did you see what I did there?!

Get out.

It took a day to somehow upset someone enough to make them leave... That's a new record, right?

and what could have possibly been in my message that was trollish?

huh?


Ok i'm completely confused now...  Huh

EDIT:

This game is older than I am. Amazing.  Roll Eyes

Kerr, at reply#10 in this post I gave a link to ship data screens. It is a flash page that defaults to Androsynth and has navigation links on the left. Choose the Earthling Cruiser for top and side views.

As to Shiver... Well, he always had some behavioral issues and in fact is the main reason I don't go to the online mellee...
