  1. Last week
  2. Well for starters I felt there was a sore lack of actual multiplayer. The trading grind was expected, nothing particularly nasty about it imo. It just seemed like the end-game was more shallow than the NPC interaction. Faction system looked like filler content so I didn't really fiddle around with it too much. The exploration system was a double edged sword, and maybe one of the few worthy things of actually doing. However, just getting to be able to explore undiscovered systems is a huge grind in itself. You're basically grinding just to literally spend hours of your time traveling. lol. And then yeah, traveling was a PITA all the way from entering supercruise to slowing down to a nav point I guess one of the bigger issues for me was the rate of progression given time played. Travel alone just kills so much of your time. I work and go to university. Maybe I have 3 hours to throw at gaming one night. If I choose ED i will likely spend 1,5/2 of those hours staring at my screen in supercruise, because if I don't look out for interdiction attempts from NPCs (or the occasional player if you're in a hot tiny patch of space) I might get killed. Like what the fuck dude. It gets old. It also makes death (which is inevitable unless you're meticulous about everything) so much worse because you'll have to spend more time traveling to re-grind. A game is supposed to be a game. After a while ED feels like monotonous work for no wages.

  4. What didn't you like about it? The trading and travel grind?
  5. Thundercats! Hooooooooo!!!!
  6. Greetings! Welcome to the 2nd Quarter 2017 Insurgent Fleet Muster! Wow, it's been a quick 3 months since our last muster! Line of Defense is still going through it's development and since the last muster, there's been quite a lot of fixes, etc., added to the game. To read all about it, go on over to the LoD page and get yourself up to speed. There also seems to be (at least in the last several weeks) a resurgence in Universal Combat! There's been a few players playing around with the GBS tools so hopefully we'll see some scenarios pop up. Work is still continuing on the UC's Lyrius Conflict. There is no date when it's to be completed, but like us old-timers know from the past, it'll be ready when it's ready and right now it's not ready! That's pretty much it with the quarterly updates. As always, if you have and questions, concerns, etc., please PM me! Insurgents, please check in! -Sho
  7. I have it as well. Didn't turn out to be my cup of tea, especially after I found out about an expansion.
  8. I have created a heavily modified version of this ACM scenario script (CMDR_C0005). Download the CMDR_C0017 file Extract to the same please where you have your GBS\Scripts folder Read the CMDR_C0017.NFO text file to see what changed, how, why etc The archive also contains the parsed script, so you can just copy it to the correct path and run it. Then later you can read the NFO file to see how it was modded.
  9. To make up for the long lull that's in progress due to the significant amount of assets that are being created for this DLC, I have decided to release the scripting tools. The GBS (Game Builder System) tool includes the following: PREPARE: script parser (the interpreter is built into the game and runs in real time) BCSTUDIO: 3D model viewer PTESTUDIO: Planetary scene viewer Script sources for all scenarios included in UCCE 3.x Sample scripts It was original included in the latest Steam release, but I have moved it to the web so that it's quicker and easier to update. You can now download it from here. For more info, visit the newly created Modding Tools Steam discussion forum.
  10. I have it, Shingen...I just haven't played it in a very long time!
  11. Necro-ing my old thread: Anyone still playing this game? I'm pretty active ATM. Lowly indie, flying a Cobra MKIII running contraband and slaves! Anyone else playing? I'd love to get SC and a few old BC commanders to create a faction and take over the bubble! That would be epic!
  12. Hi Mordax! Great to have you back!!!! -Sho

  22. Hi Charles! I'm really sorry to hear about your Dad and Mom. Really. I know how it feels. I went through this 5 years ago and I was the Executor. It sucks. On a happier note, I'm glad you had a great Thanksgiving! Trust me, 2017 will be better! Great to see you are out of nullspace!
  23. Hi guys; Just checking and saying hello. Sorry I haven't reported but I have been in nullspace and had quite the time since I last posted. December 3, 2015 my dad had a massive stroke. He recovered somewhat but after over a year in a nursing home he died March 13, 2016. My mother, who had dementia far longer than I really knew, must have realized his passing deep down and had a massive stroke a week after his funeral. She died March 31, 2016. So I had been dealing with taking my mother to visit my dad in the nursing home and now that they are gone I have been trying to wrap up their affairs, All in all, I had a wonderful Thanksgiving to myself. Then one of my brothers barbequed the following Saturday. I wouldn't mind that becoming a tradition in and of itself. Christmas was sort of meh. Here is to hoping 2017 will be much better.
  24. Pretty colors! That's all I can say as I'm not smart enough to truly comprehend the awesomeness.
  25. Gotcha, canshow!
  26. Aye I am here
