  1. This is kind of the same thing, i lost a shuttle and a ATV to a excaped prisoner, so i bought the OC Asset and the Shuttle Asset. In the manual it says to go to the destroyed crafts repair schedule and click the replace button. The only problem is i can't find a repair schedule for the ship since it is destroyed. I have tried in and out of a station. I have read that part of the manual several times and can't figure out how to replace it.

    This is a great game but me only having 3 shuttles and 3 ATVs is getting on my nerves

  2. I got about 9 million from 4 full drones on phobos. I am not sure how much you can get total form drones but i estimate on a really good haul you could get 40 million.

    SC, here is real data on phobos:

    -orbit: 9378 km from the center of Mars

    -diameter: 22.2 km (27 x 21.6 x 18.8)

    -It also has a high orbit speed (about one orbit a day)

  3. When i am in orbit around a planet (150k out with A/P on halt) i usally have 4 of my fighters defend my firestorm. Something wierd happens when they gaurd. They fly away from my ship and then turn around and head back, they continue flying untill they bounce off my hull (making a BUMP noise). They then proceed to that repeat for the entire duration of the gaurd. This bounce causes no damage, but sometimes the ships get stuck and i have to move. Is this normal?

  4. Here are some neat scenarios using a newtonian flight model:

    -With the newtonian flight model you could just hold down the thrust key and eventually you will reach 99.999999999999% light speed.

    -You could put a ship in tow and let it fly toward a station at near light speed, when it hits it would decimate the station.

    -You could also fly through a sector so fast that you could launch missles and leave before they even scrambled fighters.

    -Also if you go out of control and start spining in mulitple directions at once it get realy hard to stop.

    -You could be going so fast the enemy only spots you on radar a split second before you are at weapons range.

  5. Is there anyplace i can download the complete SoundBlaster Live! Platinum driver(s). On the creative web site they only have updates to the driver.

    Edit: Just rembered my computer has onboard sound. That will have to do untill i get ahold of my Sound Blaster driver.

  6. I am having trouble getting the game installed and i have already registered my copy. My problem occurs every time the installer gets to "Copying New Files" part of the install. After 1 or 2 tics appear the installer crashes.

    I also end all the programs that are running except explore and systray before i start the install. I know installer crashes are not the SC fault, but i was wondering if anyone knows any reason it might crash or a way to check to make sure the installer is installed properly.

    I cannont reformat and reinstall windows because i am in moving limbo. I am in a temperary apartment untill our new house is finished and all of are stuff is packed. Therefore i do not have access to all of the drivers for my computer or the proper software to access the internet once i reformat and reinstall windows.

  7. In our new house we have cable hooked up to a router. The router has a hardware firewall and our sever is password protected. If someone had the expertiece to break into our system then they wouldn't waste it on hacking into it. When we move oursevles into the house (only my dads office is curently in the house) i think i will get zone alarm too.

    The only disadvantage of having a software firewall is the fact that you have to turn it off for some multiplayer games. Which will probally be the case with BCM and GCO.

    Wolfrez, are those attempts to hack into your computer or just probes on your IP address? There is a difference between someone searching for a IP to hack and trying to break into the computer or network the IP represents.

  8. DOAM, you have not read much about the Nforce have you. Its integrated harware is top of the line, the graphics are geforce 2 quality and the sound is top notch. They don't slow down computer preformance enough for it to even be a issue. Also the Nforce has better memory architecture and is optimized for the Athlon XP. Bottom line, don't not get the motherboard becuase of its intergrated compents. If you are short on cash and need to save 40-50 dollars i would go with a cheaper Motherboard.

  9. A easy way to solve this problem is to tell Microsoft stick with the definition OS that Charles proposed. That would make Microsoft remove all the "extra" software they have bundled with the OS.

    Then Microsoft could sell a package of software with all those programs in it. They could even recommend on the OS box to go and buy those programs. The important part is that you have the choice of paying for these programs or not. That way some one can decided if they want those Microsoft programs or other programs or other bundles.
