it was to end the doctrinal conflict so that you can take a bunch of your favorite races to the kessari quadrant and annihilate a bunch of losers that call themselves the hegemonic crux so that you can talk to cows and some other people for no particular reason.

could be worse.  could be the end of regular mode on zero wing and have a bunch of dancing raisins.

It's on the TODO list; working code for the intro/ending actually exists, it's just waiting on the new resource system.

Ok, this is starting to get annoying. I mean, I don't mind that the Mycon question comes up all the time. And there are several other things that people ask OVEr and OVER again, instead of checking through the lists. But with me, that's fine. After all, this place is here to help people with all and any of their UQM problems.

But if you're gonna complain, and about something that isn't stopping you from completing the game, would it be too much to ask that you check if your complaint has already been adressed? Before you reask it I mean.

I'm sorry, was the last thread like this 10 pages back or 20? I'd apoligize for offending your message board sensibilities, however, I realize that your wanting to appear cool to all the other "veterans" on this message board by kicking around someone without enough seniority to threaten your virtual ego. (such as myself) Feel free. I'm here for YOU to act out on any frustrations you may have.  Roll Eyes

Anyways, I remember playing this game way back in my youth, and after going to all the trouble to beat it again, I was a little surprised to get nothing but credits and goofy leprechaun music. It was like Saint Patricks Day, only without scantilly clad women serving me green beer. Needless to say, I was quite surprised with this oversight, considering the incredible job the devteam did on porting the rest of the game.

Here, here. Speaking as a veteran, I of course I've seen every topic already. However, Lukipela, did you let the newbies talk it talk it out a bit before busting in your 2 cents. You know, you've done this before in other threads. If you're tired of not having anything new to read here, then take your ball and go play somewhere else.
I'm not saying that to be rude to you, Luk. I'm saying that because you've been quite rude to every other newbie on this board. We need the newbies. UQM is not an exclusive club. We need a constant flow of new blood to the fanbase or we will never see a UQM sequel, and you don't want that do you? Go easier on all the new guys and if you're tired of the same old rehashed, ignore the thread and it'll fall off the screen like every other dumbarce topic we've had so far.

All very well put. But I still maintain that the big Search button at the top would help you find the wrod intro quite quick.

Still, it was more a case of sever frustration than any attempt to make myself "shine" in the eyes of the Veterans (of whom most are gone anyway). But, it did help me vent some of my frustration, for which I am thabnkful. I feel much calmer and saner now... Or do I? Wink

Where do you celebrate St. Patricks day? I must try to go there sometime. Over here we just get the same boring beer all the time.

And I've done it in other threads? Usually I just post the link to any conversation that looks a bit the same, (although I must admit I was too lazy to do that this morning) Also, they did talk it out before I posted anything, I thought of my part as more of an addendum, he got his answer before I messed up the thread.

As for the UQM sequel, one can always hope... And dream. What will happen though, remains to be seen.

There is an obvious and simple solution -- Somebody who has the time/energy/will, post a "Frequently Asked Questions" thread already, and beg the moderators to sticky/lock it; then be damn sure it's kept up to date.

After this, anyone who posts a question that is addressed in the FAQ can be completely ignored, or at the very least, told to go read the FAQ.

As for who has enough time to maintain such a thing, I'd guess that I'd nominate the #1 poster on the forum as the obvious choice, unless someone else wants to do it.

Heh, there's some kind of subtle irony hidden in this isn't there? Oh well, I suppose it only serves me right for bitchin...

Still, as I've never written an FAQ before, don't expect it to be great, or to be done tomorrow. And I'll need a go ahead from one of the team guys so I know I'm not just writing something that will essentially be useless. But if I get that, then sure, I'll be able to produce something... Guess I better dig out a spellcheck program, eh?  Wink

Forum FAQ is a good idea. If Lukipela or someone else writes it, I'll make it sticky as soon as it's posted.

Though this 'no ending' thing is already mentioned in the project status section at our home page, but as usual ppl haven't read it or other notes that this is still alpha and not everything is on place yet.

I just figured it was a bit premature discussing sweeping new additions to the game, such as adding the Androsynth to the game or changing around the voice acting when currently, the game lacks a proper ending. (or proper intro, for that matter) Anyways, I'm glad that it is being worked on, and I look forward to version .3 hopefully having the ending...

Mycon question is:  The syreen told me to go tell the mycon about this world, and I did, and nothing happened!  Why?

Answer:  Go to epsilon scorpii, not beta brahe

Why so common:  The line that mentioned the mycon homeworld at epsilon scorpii was taken out in the 3D0 versions, and pretty much every starcon 2 FAQ on the net gets this scenario wrong, saying to go to beta brahe.

i see.

thanks, since i just hit that part of the game.

so far, only two crashes and i think they have been fixed based on the changelog.  (planet lander memory leak thing.)  i've been keeping a list of abnormal behavior, but we're not supposed to post bugs in the technical forum.  i guess i'll pipe up if i see a major one not listed in the changelog in the future.
