Re: Cave-in survival?

Gotta Agree. I hesitate to complain about a detail like this, because (firstly) different folks like different details/features/challenges; and (secondly) a game like this is so addictive and...

Re: Hoarding Data?

Ouch! What a nasty Artifact to pick up! I would hate to have a few hundred thousand (or more) in Data, and then instantly lose it, because I picked up a "cursed" artifact. BTW, I wouldn't consider...

Re: Unlocking ships question

Wow! I was really kind of stunned by how difficult it was to operate an Assault Scout successfully. (BTW, I really have to stop calling these ships "Assault Shuttles", since they really are...

Yep, the ship pictured in the second Attached Image, is the (RED, slightly menacing-looking) Negotiator class ship, which I am so fond of. (See my extended comments in DamienPS's Discussion thread...

Re: Favourite Ship Type

Interesting Questions ... and somewhat Tricky Ones, too; since many of us don't really know much about many of the ships that are already available (un-lockable) in the game. Still, it's too...

Re: AI T-Shirts

Thank you for giving this your consideration!

I should say that when I spoke of making the Bonus code "usable any time during the month", I really meant: "any ONE time during the month". Beyond...

Re: Stupid Joke

Of course, I would never see such a movie, myself ... ;););)

Actually, I had just run into a Limoquee Spaceholme in Sector 27 (for the first time) of my current game. At that point, it was a...

Re: Stupid Joke

Well I suppose the Limoquee's favorite movie could be: "Greystoke: the Legend of Tarzan" ... :)

Re: Reports of bugs or possible bugs.

Bug ?? I lost all my "Pay it Forward" credits, and was told in an error message, that I had cheated. Surely this is not a feature.
