Re: Missing saved files

Try looking for an SE5 directory in the "My Documents" directory. With the increasing security under Vista and Win 7 (and soon Win 8) more and more games are getting smart enough to save to an...

Re: Who's Left?

While I do still check these boards every few days, I haven't played SE (any version) in several years. It's just not interesting if it's not developing any further. There was, and is, so much still...

Re: Off Topic Thread

With jump drives and maneuver drives being separate, does this mean we can finally have a distinction between "jump ships" and "system ships"? That's a major point of tactical ship design that we've...

Re: 32 bit Bitmaps

32-bit is not about the color. It's about the data format. Computers us binary math, remember. ;) Doing any sort of calculation in powers of two is much, much faster for a computer than working in...

Re: Welcome Star Legacy Development Group!

Star Trek is a very bad example to use for "science and technology" in fiction. Trek is very arbitrary and inconsistent. They alter the science any time they want to make a story work. I would say...

Re: Welcome Star Legacy Development Group!

Hm, thats a very interesting idea. But then if theres 15 races (which is expected), then you'd need 15 weapons! That's actually doable but I have my doubts I'd get permission, but I'll try.

Re: Welcome Star Legacy Development Group!

Yes, it is important and very beneficial to work elements of simulation into the game. Science fiction needs to be vaguely related to real-world science in order to be believable. The generic...

Re: What other games do you people play?

It does take a long time to accumulate some resources so you can do something. Several weeks even if you know what you are doing. But it is possible to play without paying for an upgrade. Especially...

Re: What other games do you people play?

I played this for as while. Disappointing how simplified it is. You can't design your own ships or bases. Everyone uses standard models of everything. Hardly any graphics, too. It's all about the...

Re: Multiverse Mod

Well, finally I got around to playing the latest chapter of the Multiverse. My main complaint is that it was too short! :D Just when I got a D7 the scenario is over. :p This was definitely the most...

Re: OT - Need Some PC Advice

You would have to actually be doing something to overheat the CPU. The newer CPUs are quite smart and turn off parts of themselves that are not being used. So, they only overheat under a full load....

Re: Masters of Orion II

Also, you might find the open source clone Free Orion to be worthwhile. It's in a very early alpha right now, but it works just fine in modern versions of Windows. More input from people playing it...

Re: What other games do you people play?

Now you've done it! I never got into Nettrek because it was so hard to survive in the multi-player environment. This is like an automated Starfleet Battles game. No need to write things down on a...

Re: Stargate SGC Conflicts In Space Star Fury Mod is now available for download

OK, I finally finished it. Like I said, the Stargate universe is not of particular interest to me, so I can't comment on how 'authentic' it seemed. But it was nice to have some different ships than...

Re: New Star Trek Movie: Story Theories

According to Trek lore Vulcan is supposed to orbit 40 Eridani, which is known to be about 16 light years from our solar system. Covering 16 light years in "five minutes" would require a speed of...

Slashdot: The "Game Industry" model is collapsing

Re: Stargate SGC Conflicts In Space Star Fury Mod is now available for download

It's hard to figure out what you "like" about big, complex games until you master them. And anyway, I'm not really a fan of the Stargate universe. Maybe if I were a Stargate fan it would be less...

Re: Babylon 5 wishlist for an SE4 mod

First and foremost for Babylon 5 is the jump gate as the means for getting around the universe rather than the warp drive. It's too bad MM never made the relatively small changes to the SE IV code...

It's not that the Replicators would have been impossible to destroy without cheating. It's that they would have been impossibly tedious to destroy without cheating. As I said, four systems in a row...

Re: Stargate SGC Conflicts In Space Star Fury Mod is now available for download

OK, I've played through the Replicator missions. That is a lot of stuff to destroy. Especially all of those systems in a row. I don't think it's balanced at all. You might want to break these...
