  2. quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: heh, reminds me of that oddball professor; what was his name again? The one who was determined to have the English spoken by African Americas declared as its own language. Damn kooks. They're everywhere.It is Robert L. Williams, he coined the word "Ebonics" more than 20 years ago. (Thanks to a quick search on Google.)
  3. Just a few, They Live The Matrix The Arrival Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure The Terminator Blackhawk Down Memento Run Lola Run Sliding Doors Fight Club The Man Who Knew Too Little
  4. BCM is damn addictive too!! Help me someone. I have seriously considered buying a pc just to run my copy of BCM 24/7...
  5. My Firestorm is sitting on Earth. I (my AE) is in shuttle one shlepping minerals and spare parts between Galcom HQ and Wraith (I love those 30% inflation rates). Anyway, I notice a lot of explosions near Earth and find that it is a Credian Warmonger. The Warmonger is there several hours later just sitting there. I decided that we can't have enemy warships sitting in our space so I jumped in a Zenstar and loaded it with 8 Starchilds and 2 Questors. I target the Warmonger and I get an "Aquired" warning. The Credians take off running so I pull up behind them at 40 clicks and match speed. I blew the Warmonger's shields out with the missles and was not having any luck with the laser. I was ready to head back for a reload and thought, what the hell...I will have the auto-pilot do the work. It worked...just before the enemy Warmonger exploded they launch a missle in desperation. I hit ECM and headed back to homeplate. (Laughing all the way) It was a lot of fun knowing that my missles had range over the 30.5 main gun limit of the Warmonger. I still can't figure out what they were doing just sitting there though...

  7. The pics for EVE are not better than the ones for XP1. What freedom do I have with EVE? (Ha!) Gameplay and immersion is more important to me than pretty pictures or picking sunglasses for my in game "head". It might be fun for a few minutes... I think the premise of the multiplayer universe is what gets most people excited. Now that I have found Battlecruiser, it is what I am sticking with.
  8. I just knew you were an Aries Derek! Enjoy your day!
  9. Everyone, don't forget to vote at gamescreenshots for XP1. This game will be in a class of its own. [ 04-04-2002, 07:48: Message edited by: Captain X ]
  10. That Warmonger is looking good Derek! Thanks for the preview. Do you have the new MK2 model yet?
  11. quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: ...uhm, I take it that it works now, then?Oh yeah baby! I sent a recon force into the insurgent starbase on Earth and they were sniped into oblivion right quick!
  12. Jaguar, Count me in. I want to join the Gammulans. Where do I sign up? Is it legit? Derek has not authorized any fleets other than what is listed in the fleet faq as far as I can tell. [ 04-01-2002, 12:48: Message edited by: Captain X ]
  13. When I collect mining drones, I have my AE go to a shuttle, fly to the drone location and land. I then Retrieve a drone, unload it and Deploy it. I do this for all four drones. I then fly the shuttle to the nearest station and sell the minerals. I don't worry about intruders this way and it is quicker too. I usually pick up any needed supplies to take back to my Battlecruiser. Meanwhile, my stupid crew stays on the surface (safely) gaining brains. Before I head to the station, I will set a waypoint for the shuttle my AE is in so when I leave the station I can planetfall right over my Battlecruiser.

This would have the same effect as upgrading computers to perform various functions.Lets try this again I SAID SYSTEM/WEAPONS UPGRADES!! Translate that to COMPUTER system upgrades then.
  15. FATAL System Upgrade that allows FATAL to track and destroy incoming missles. (anti-missle missles?) Cloaking System upgrade that reduces the consumption rate of Iridium. An upgrade(?) that allows a temporary increase in the bridge crew's ai levels would be nice. This would have the same effect as upgrading computers to perform various functions.
