  1. Submariners in the Royal Navy refer to their fellow Royal Navy ship borne comrades as "Targets"
  2. I think an information service/network is critical for independents traders and commercials to go about their business in an informed and calculated manner. Intercorp will definately be setting up some sort of system, maybe we should talk? Trading and commercial activities will be our livelihood, as I said above I don't think we should be out there wasting a lot of time and energy organizing embargoes and trying to change parts of the Universe to suit us. We should be masters of adaptation to take full advantage of every situation. At the end of the day if a trader does not feel safe going into a region, then don't. There will be plenty of other "safe" regions to do business in. [ 02-06-2002, 09:59: Message edited by: Guybert ]
  3. Dunno about any of you lot, but the few times I've had an argument with my wife then gone to a bar to cool off(we only have a 1 bed apartment - not a lot of room to stay away from each other!). The LAST thing I want to do whilst in the bar is talk to some other woman. All I want to do is cool off, read the paper, watch some sports and get my head together. Why introduce more confusion to an unsettled situation?
  4. quote:Originally posted by T-WOPR: MUTUAL PROTECTION UNION: Statement of Formulation Mission Statement The general mission of the Mutual Protection Union (The Union, MPU) is to protect commercial commanders from the common dangers to Free Trade: raiders, mercenaries, and aggressive police forces. This will be accomplished through the economic power of loosely united Sects and individual commanders. There will be no need to hire mercenaries to protect from mercenaries, the defense will be the trade. If a region has no trade, how can it survive?Umm ... correct me if I'm wrong but anyone can participate in trading activity right? If the Mutual Protection Union decides to blacklist a region, the dwellers within that region can do their own trading or hire mercenaries to do it for them. Trading will go on whether the MPU boycots a region or not. If a region is especially dangerous either don't go there or hire protection. A few traders choosing to ignore a region will not bring those within it to their knees. In my opinion the only people suffering economically here will be the traders and commercials belonging to your union. A cunning trader or commercial will actually be able to turn dodgy regions to his/her advantage by establishing contacts, building relationships and charging a premium to do business there 'cos others will be too scared to. At the end of the day independents are independent because they're in it for themselves. Just my thoughts .... [ 02-05-2002, 09:28: Message edited by: Guybert ]
  5. You're right, there aren't many independents out there at the moment. Once BCO kicks off I think there will be a lot more around. With BCO the full potential for a life as an independent caste will be released. Bring it on baby.....
  6. As my esteemed colleague has already said, good luck on you enterprise T-Wopr. However, it seems once again that there is massive misinterpretation as to what Intercorp is all about. We are here to provide a range of SERVICES to ANYONE. Unless you are an officer of Intercorp the only rules you need to abide by when working with Intercorp is do nothing to disrespect the name. YOU ARE FREE TO COME AND GO TO USE OUR SERVICES AT ANY TIME. For a fee we can provide a selection of jobs/missions to undertake, insurance against loss of cargo, a cheap source of fuel, financing for ship upgrades, investment opprtunities for your hard earned wedge, a source of information as to the state of the galaxy and what areas to avoid, armed protection when trading in dodgy regions and much much more. Of course if you choose to become an officer of Intercorp, we can offer benefits on top of all this. We are here to help when and where we can, we're not a threat to anyones independant status. In fact, using Intercorp will provide more chances of pursuing a (very challenging) successful independent career by providing services aimed to make this possible.
  7. Yeah, a valve grind and new rings should have that bad boy running more efficiently.
  8. quote:Originally posted by Gomez: Some things are better left dead and buried... Battlestar Galactica, while it was amazing for it's time, is p-a-t-h-e-t-i-c compared to modern day story lines. Even the worst of the new Star Trek or Farscape episodes beats the best of the BG episodes. BG always reminded me of Logans Run ... or was it the other way around? Anyway, great concept but crap storylines with absolutely zero plot development. Which now I think of it reminds me of the Dukes of Hazzard ... aarrgh

  10. A couple of FATAL's is a great way to quickly soften up an enemy carrier, then polish off with main gun. Fast & effective.

I know, the machine I use now does a good job. Its just that I have this disease called "Serious Gamer"! I simply must have the best. So, by the end of this week, my sig profile will change, muahahahahah!!!!!! ) I have a disease called "Empty Wallet"
  12. Trouble is beer and tobacco seem to go so well together .....

  14. Hi Rick, Welcome to BCM. If you're interested in the potential possibilities of playing the Commercial caste when BCO goes live, check out Intercorp's website link in my sig. Intercorp is an organization we're putting together for independent players/castes in the BCO universe, providing all manner of support and resources. If you think this is the direction you want to head in then feel free to join us. See you in the ether.......
  15. Joe, I won't respond specifically to your observations, this has all ready been done in a better manner than I could manage by my gaming colleagues above. However, it seems to me you're a little peeved at not being able to play this game as an elite performer as soon as you've finished loading it to your computer. This is not and never was that sort of a game. If you want a game where you can blast away with impunity and zero regard for any attempt at an intelligent strategy in 14 bland, scripted, identical scenarios then I would suggest you might want to get another game. The scope and depth of BCM requires an element of learning and pretty much all real enthusiasts for this game genre will tell you that this, a challenge to develop skills to improve in-game performance and complete open endedness is how it really should be. Finally, in BCM, we have these elements amd much, much more. All the resources and support you need to get all you can out of BCM are available in the manual and here at the website in abundance. Make an effort (we all did) you may even find it rewarding.

DWMC was so awful, in the space of ten minutes I was violently sick, went down with scabies and lost my girlfriend - all because of that soul destroyingly pants pile of horse snot. The producers of that film are worse than Hitler. Incidently, I get to take my newly aquired, tall, teachery like future EX to see LoTR tomoz night. Yay! It's Christmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas! Dude, where's you sense of humour?

  18. quote:Originally posted by Remo Williams: LOL! RP I just had a couple questions before I consider joining.(not) 1. Does Intercorp give out christmas bonuses? 2. What type of retirement Plan does Intercorp offer? 3. If I joined the raider division and attack and intercorp trader, boarded his ship. Shoved the cmdr. out of the airlock. Then made off with his ship an cargo. Would I still be in good standings with Intercorp for a job well done for my division? /RP 1&2 Come and speak with your local El Dorado representative. We can always work out an investment plan that suits your requirements. Also, we offer very competitive rates if you are thinking about trading in your rusty old Nightstar and upgrading to that nice shiny Battlecruiser MkIII you've seen at the dealership. 3 Remember, Intercorp tends to look unfavourably on any malicious interference in their business and has access to the services of a number of mercenaries.... HeHe, I can't wait!
  19. quote:Originally posted by Cmdr Jeffery Eu: Riga, TRD, Fendi, Guybert, Kenada please email me with your intentions. Lets stick with it and see how it pans out. This was/is shaping up to be a lot of fun. IMO we should keep going as the potential of the open ended concept created by the SC in BCO will be the best thing that has EVER happened to PC gaming!
  20. quote:Originally posted by Joel Schultz: Good point, good point. If you can afford it. If you can't... Come and talk to us here at Intercorp, I'm sure we can meet all your protection requirements and design an affordable, easy to manage custom repayment structure to suit your current financial situation. We are VERY open minded.
  21. LOL. I agree, with all the touting of various vessels in this forum the Megaron seems strangely overlooked. Megaron rocks dude!
  22. quote:Originally posted by Cmdr Jeffery Eu: Gotta conserve time to allow me more time to play the game now that RL is really clashing with my game time. Yeah, I've noticed that too. RL gets in the way A LOT with this game.
