Re: Coming Up On 15 Years

I've gotten SEV, on STEAM. Boy, remember when I was one of the people who was against SEV on STEAM? What a lifesaver STEAM turned out to be, when I lost my CD access code,

SEV runs fine on my...

Re: Coming Up On 15 Years

Maybe once every couple of years, I reload SE4, with the TDM-Modpack, and play a game. Its always fun, in small bursts. Sometimes the AI wins, sometimes I beat the AI, but its getting there that's...

Re: Space Empires IV clone

Well this is pretty exciting. Maybe 6 weeks ago,I reloaded SEIV Gold and played a TDM-Modpack game just for old times sake. What would you say is the overall goal for doing this project. Yes, I'll...

Re: TF Orders

Its been a while since I played, but here's something to look at: did the ships that didn't close have weapons? That may have been a flaw of the "don't destroy the planet before the troop ships...

Re: Need a copy of Vista

Dang. I was lurking, hoping someone had a reliable source for old versions of Windows. I could use a copy of Windows 95, or even Win 3.11, to run some ancient software on my very old system that...

Re: Did Space Empires V kill Space Empires?

I don't think SE5 absolutely killed the Space Empires franchise. I seem to recall, just a little bit, that at the very end of the SE4 patch cycle, people on this board just weren't talking about it...

Re: Just Stopping in to say hi.

I keep the bookmark handy, and lurk at what people are saying. There seem to be a few SE4,4.5, 5 projects going on.



What's that. Do you all still do IRC?

Usually, I do save the little sticker. At least, I have every other time. If I don't keep the jewel case, I tape the sticker onto the slot in the soft case where I put everything. Maybe I kept the...

Re: Interest in SE5 Expansion?

I'd buy a SE5 expansion pack, and play it a few times. I'm getting heavier into Linux these days, and I'm more likely to get SE4 to work under Linux, but I'd still like to support MM and Strategy...

Re: The Things That Worked In SE V

Oh yeah, that first one was on my wishlist for SE5, and early messages from MM hinted they were working on it. But it became too problematical to implement, as I recall. It worried some people too,...

Re: Balance Mod Available for SE:V

I'm not sure, but this mod may well have been what I've been looking for, to simplify SE5 enough for it to be enjoyable. You've done some real good work in the past Captain Kwok: so I will try this...

Re: The Things That Worked In SE V

... and the Balance Mod's implementation of Fyron's planet mod did allow for rotating planets and stars. Which was a bit of eye-candy I did like, especially with the mild atmospheric glow.

Re: An Open Letter to the PBW Community

On the face of it, this seems like the saddest news yet. But you're right, it is impressive that the site was able to hold up, without even adverts, for so long. Maybe, if SE6 is groundbreaking...

Re: The Things That Worked In SE V

I personally got over the user interface designs problems, that seemed to be a deal killer for some people.

The balance mod is very important too. Most significantly for me, the endless tiny...
