Fantastic news. This has touched me and it is the reason I am registering on this forum after well, more than a decade stalking the forums without and almost two decades of playing the games.
I'm going to be honest because its what I'm good at. I don't like the other games you've made. For me it is only about Battlecruiser and it being improved, polished, upgraded and assembled through the years. I don't care how you rename or claim to see it as different games, I'm just glad you're sharing the process with everyone.
What the hell are you talking about? Didn't Derek asked to stay on topic? You have to be kidding.
Will you please RTFM, more precisely the "2. ENHANCED NAV MODULE" part. Jesus.
You can't just drop any "MP3" nowhere, if it works with a crappy player, that's a miracle. Here's the deal, if Derek accepts my help, I could write a simple batch script using ffpmeg maybe so you can drop any mp3 on the music dir and run the script so it goes to a format the game wants. It could come along with the game files like Directx. Or you could have done it by yourself already, couldn't you?
Regarding the "ALL" function, I miss that too. Now that you mentioned it, there are some repetitive tasks like ordering marines in batch while in FPS for instance that could have a "button" or something.
Also, since I am Resnig, Paul Resnig I feel that I m in position to ask for a "Send all (or most all) marines on search duty" command for purposes of dealing with intruders, so as to clean up my name from all these rumors. It has come to my attention that most players think they should send me to detention hold right after they hear "priority one alert", and that's kind of insulting, actually.
A "Deactive launch and transporter control power" as a panic measure, without even going into Logistix would be useful as well.
The other things you said and I haven't quoted are related to low AI stupid marines that you decide to put on control of your shuttles, and those things have been discussed elsewhere, why are you wrecking this topic?
I was going to suggest crowd funding for the Battlecruiser remake, as it has already been suggested and considered, actually.
I'm going to be honest once again. I've never payed for any of your games and the reason is that I just don't like this kind of method and I will never like. Crowdfunding on the other hand it's something that I do like and I will definetly invest a lot in a crowdfunding game when you pull that out.
As for spaceman00's comment, I suggest you to go see about the story of Wasteland 2. In short, Brian Fargo has released the game on steam (hate it) and good old games (love it), then actually "finished up" the game and released the "director's cut" edition, which was given for free for the backers, just like a patch or something. It's one of the stories to get inspired when going towards that path.
Let me state this again. I am anxious to finally show my support in a financial way to the 3000ad games if you decide to try crowdfunding.
Can we have this on UCADV?
