I don’t know, I always thought the ugly faces you sometimes met on the boards were a charming feature, as Scott Manley said in this review video of Pioneer
Spying I meant to say.
Well at least it insn’t the Chinese spaying on folk, still pretty bad tho! 🙁August 20, 2018 at 3:43 pm in reply to: What are the best games for fans of Elite Dangerous? #111483
Not a bad list, quite a few good games on there I am familiar with, although they missed Rebel Galaxy…
Awesome soundtrack too.
Also, there is life in good old Freelancer yet with the Crossfire 2 mod!
Who says you have to buy a new game to have fun, just mod it! 😉August 7, 2018 at 5:50 am in reply to: New Star Trek Series — with Sir Patrick Stewart omg #111482
Yes, make it so! Will be great to see him back although I am still waiting to see even this new series as it has not been broadcasted yet where I live.
Also…..I can only hope this encourages Babylon 5 makes a return one day too as that was the only other show to ever to provide any competition to the Star Trek franchise bay in the day.
Remember this scene D1?
It’s good to see the return of the Krait, it was one of my favorite ships from the older games. 🙂
Replying to myself here. On investigation the GOG version will get the next “NEXT” update but later on and seemingly on via GOG Galaxy. Details here.
I have the GOG release of NMS. I am unsure if it will get this update or not. Is this update already live on Steam?
Nice find D1! SR2 is a damn fine 4X game. Think I will wait for for a definitive release that includes all the goodies tho.
Thanks D1 😉
Hey D1, how does the PM system work? Or does the SSC still have a PM system?
Gernot. It is simply wonderful to see you back, weaving your magic once again. You can do a great many things but my goodness, can you build ships and starports! 🙂
Rework the netcode? Isn’t that what they have supposed to been doing since the project started? To be fair, it has improved, a little, but not nearly enough to reach the goals they have set themselves, like if you want to see multiple fully crewed cap ships. The Idris, for example, has appeared already in a few tech demos now, it looks flight ready, to me at least, but still has yet to appear in the Alpha. It isn’t just the CTDs either but the awful lag, terrible framerates, and all that before a whole host of other bugs are tackled too. They will get there, eventually, but there is still a long road to go yet. I just hope I am still around to see it! 😮
They are going to have to seriously rail back on some of the features because their network code simply isn’t upto the task. I just tried the latest build (3.2 at the time of writing this), nothing but CTDs. Looks like a long way to go yet…..
This is crazy, but I wish them success! 🙂May 11, 2018 at 12:53 pm in reply to: Space Battles and other exotic things from the past #111336
Oh! You asked how many copies were dumped Gernot? According to that article:
“Though it was believed that millions of copies of E.T. were disposed of in the landfill, Atari officials later verified the numbers to be around 700,000 cartridges of various titles, including E.T.”
I will try Google translate, forgive me
“Obwohl angenommen wurde, dass Millionen von E.T.-Exemplaren auf der Mülldeponie entsorgt wurden, bestätigten Atari-Beamte später, dass die Zahlen bei etwa 700.000 Patronen verschiedener Titel lagen, einschließlich E. T.”
Hope that helps Gernot, although I don’t trust Google translate very much! 😮May 9, 2018 at 3:38 pm in reply to: Space Battles and other exotic things from the past #111334
That ship looks familiar! 🙂May 3, 2018 at 10:34 pm in reply to: Hello SSC – New recruit reporting in (also, hobby game developer) #111311
Welcome to you cjgamedev and good luck with your own game. I also noticed no mention of any of the Elite games! 😮
There is Elite Dangerous of course which I am sure you know about but there is also free games too based on the older games in the series: Oolite, FFE3D (it’s around someplace in the download area) and Pioneer. Anyways, have fun! 🙂
Palawan D1? Been there, nice place. 🙂 I am sure the SSC will be fine so don’t worry and instead, have fun! 😉
If such a world exists one day Gernot, I’d put my money on you finding that Easter egg! Only the children of the 8 bit era would stand a chance! 😀
