  1. quote:Originally posted by Soback: How do I convert the screenshots to JPG? I just had some very very exciting experiences (posted about them in "BCM war stories and experiences" thread and would love to post my screenshots. By the way, how do I post them too? If you search the web you can find somewhere close to 7.4832 Sh*t-loads of utilities for converting images to various file formats. Here's a link to one of the better shareware image viewer/converter programs http://www.acdsystems.com/English/Products...eeClassic/index .htm As for putting the files up on the web, I usually upload 'em to my own webspace. If you don't have any, there's a bunch of different free image hosting services out there, but I've never used 'em myself so I can't be of much help with that. I think Yahoo will host images. Not sure though. [ 12-13-2001: Message edited by: Schmendrick ]
  2. Give 'em a bogus email address if it makes you feel better. There's no email confirmation required to complete the registration.

  4. quote:Originally posted by AshSpear: The linear/IV shield system has got to be god's gift to spacefarers. Complete with guardian angel. I just wiped out three startations and didn't get scratched. The last one featured a cloaked stormcarrier in waiting too. I miss the BC3000 days when taking out a station involved taking the day off work and scratching away at it, then limping back to GALCOM because it was the only place you could afford all the repairs. Now those were startations. I agree. So far my only real complaint with the game is that it's too easy. I routinely blow away dozens of enemies without taking any damage at all. The only times I've been killed have all been due to my own stupidity. But maybe after I've played a single game for a week or two the AI will start getting good enough to give me a challenge. Maybe an option to set the starting average computer AI level would be usefull. [ 12-10-2001: Message edited by: Schmendrick ]
  5. quote:Originally posted by $iLk: I'm saying that there ought to be requirements to vote, because it isn't taken seriously anymore. And yes all men ARE created equal, however some begin to move ahead of others in different areas of society. It's the way things have worked out. The point is that all people should be regarded equally by the government. Whenever this is not the case(as it already is in many aspects), serious problems arise. If you want to remove people's voting rights, start with the illegal aliens and the dead people in Chicago.
  6. Geez. Reading this thread makes me weep for the state of education in this country. Did all of you just forget about the "all men are created equal" bit? What you're describing is a surefire plan to create a concrete caste system. On the surface, such ideas might seem appealing. But in practice it would simply cause resentment and class warfare. You also seem to be buying into the concept that the government grants rights to the people. This is not the case. Our rights are recognized by our constitution to be intrinsic human rights upon which the government is prohibited from infringing. The thought that the government should be granting special rights or privelages to certain people makes me ill. 100 years ago, people didn't even want the government to maintain a standing army. That the government would have the power to draft citizens in times other than war wasn't even considered. And now you think it should be mandatory before people are even allowed to vote?

Cool Any chance well be able to, um, process said animals into trade items (furs, meats, etc.) at some point? It'd be fun to organise a little safari with the bridge crew while waiting for your mining drones to fill up. And watching Resnig get eaten by various semi-sentient floura and fauna would open up a whole new dimension of entertainment.
  8. quote:The Aestrom is horrible compared to the Firestorm. The Firestorm: 1. Looks better That's a matter of taste. The firestorm looks like an odd kind of tuning fork. quote:2. Has more turrets Have you ever driven one? It may just be a matter of my perception, but it seems like the turrets on the Aestrom have a better firing arc toward the front of the craft, and hence hit a lot more.
  9. Am I the only person who who likes the Aestrom better than the Firestorm?
