Default Re: Who's Left?

I start a new SEIV game every 3 or 4 months, and play for 2 days. No time for more. Oldtimers here might remember me. Where have I been, you ask? If the old threads still exist, you'll see that I threatened to write a book. Well, I'm doing it. Actually it's a several-book story. Haven't decided if it will be 3 or 4. I just finished Books 1 and 2, and have submitted it to my "beta" readers. Currently it is roughly the length of two 400-page Harry Potter books.

Thumbs up Re: Who's Left?

Not only am I still VERY actively playing at both home and on PBW2, but I am working on a new/updated mod with Bearclaw and Dead Meat. Also did a fair portion of the new component images for Comp Pack update #33.

Is it a totally new mod or an update of a existing one? Any idea yet on the features?

It will be an updated and expended version of the Masters Mod done by Urendi Malendil. Has a ton of potential to it, and hopefully will be a lot of fun to play.

I just got an email from Strategy First offering me a FREE copy of SEIV if I join their free MMORPG
Might be a good way to get friends into the game.

I loved SE IV and SEV to a lesser degree.

For me changing the battles to real-time (abet pausable) was the biggest change that rankled. I hear rumors Stardock will be making a 4x space game with tactical battles (based on Elemental: Fallen Enchantress engine I guess), lets hope it will be a MoO2/SEIV fix.

Having said that I just downloaded Kwok's balance mod for SEV and will give it another go this Friday night

If I'm honest, I miss the SEIV community mostly
The change of direction for the franchise, moving over too strategy first (who clearly didn't give a damn) and maybe a few other things just seemed to rip the community apart
Then with SEV effectively doa... well, not much more to be said
Just happened to come across some screens of SEIV (which can now be gotten for free at gamersgate) and a big sense of nostalgia come over me, even remember a game me and suicide junkie had 1v1, with me ended up being pinned in the corner of the quandrant due to an unlucky start (took him forever to even persuade me to try PBW lol)
Hanging out on the IRC channel, which I believe no longer exists, I even beta'd SEV (last game I did as well, prior to that I had beta'd 100+ games over the years)

Is a shame the source code for SEIV couldn't be released (I'd imagine that is owned by SFi?)

Yes SciFi retained the rights to the franchise. I suspect it was a buy-out option for the extensive layout of funds involved with that style of publisher (for marketing and packaging costs prior to release)

Now that the game is a free download maybe some cheap-*** advertising such as on Facebook and Google could startup a new gamers community. Or call the others back

Still looking for a good game like SEIV.
Currently playing Star Ruler. Give it a spin.
