  1. Looks like your going to blow Eve out of the water with this game =) can't wait.
  2. Fallout 1&2 are *THE* best RPG's ever created IMO. I havent found one RPG that has made me lose so much sleep or was so much fun. Fallout 3 was okay I liked the feel they gave the game and VATS was a nice touch although i didnt use it much. I did find it dumb that they cut down the leveling system you should beable ot level beyond level 20.
  3. when attacking a star station in a ship that can cloak, cloak then hyper jump to the station you will stay cloaked and the station won't fire on you, then fire while cloaked, the station will eventually fire on you, but by the time it does it should be too late, turn your PTA systems off until ready to rape it, turn your main guns to 20% once the hull is below 10k this way you can control the burst better and not destroy it if you want to capture it, once it sets out a SOS signal try to dock you will be prompted to "take over station" hit yes or the 'y' button, congrats you just owned a station with little to no casualty's and advanced your race's holdings. be sure to continue to move with your cloaked ship and have enough cloak fuel to execute this, more then 3 minutes worth is recommended. The rest of the problems that can occure just ask. like radiation flooding.
  4. Oh okay i see what you mean i just dropped 3 drones and now i see, i see =\ A nice trick you can do as well is to fly to the supply stations near the stations you want to dock at doing this will get you within 3km of it and then all you gotta do is fly 3km's and bam your there to trade =) alot quicker then targeting the station and flying to it its self. when your in space and not going to be launching any fighters or SC's turn your launch control off that way if you get intruders they cant steal any of your ships all they can do is hide in them then your marines will pwn them.
  5. I like to fly around mine and find cargo pod's from recent battles if im not destroying the ship that is =P, when you hear "acquired" turn your shields on full blast the second you hear that, a fighter just dropped my shields from 30% to little or nothing damage 4% of my armour. \ Something i found out for the free version of UC, you can place one drone one a planet, then later (after its after 50%) you can place more, the other drones you place on the same planet as drone 1 will have the same amount of minerals as the first one. (don't know if this is a bug or not, but its neat). so both of my miners have 81% as of right now. I own UCCE but i didnt knwo the free version limited MP, however idon't play MP anyhow the SP is enough for me.
  6. Thank you I thought since the board was basically empty that ment the thread no longer existed. But i guess they archive them eh? Thanks for the fast response.
  7. Do some planets let your drones fill up quicker or slower? right now my drones fill up at about 1% per every 1-2 minutes. was wondering if there is a planet out there that lets you fill up faster/slower?
  8. The 32-bit mode is right there near the screen resolution in the options menu either though the game or though the main game screen.
  9. After capturing my 4th station i only get the medal for the capture not the XP. After you capture 3? does that mean i have to get to the 6th before i will get any XP?
  10. quote:Originally posted by Wolferz: quote:Originally posted by BC_Vet: The problem with launching all your assets around a friendly station is that you might come back and find some of your craft SOS or destroyed. AI pilots will engage hostiles anywhere in the region if u leave them on default SAD orders. With pilots below 50 AI, I couldn't advise this tactic, it's cheaper just to shut off launch control, walk back to ur shuttle and then u won't have to worry about losing assets when u r out-of-system. How pray tell are you going to launch your shuttle with launch control powered down? That's right! You can't. I always attempted to circumvent the problem by landing the CC on a planetary body. Even that gives no guarantee of asset safety. Many times I returned to find a shuttle gone and sometimes a couple of fighter craft. The shuttle would be sitting on the ground not far from the CC....unrecoverable. So, I just accept the loss and replace the asset. If your command crew has gained sufficient AI then you can leave without worry because they will kill launch control at the first sign of an intruder. Makes it a wee bit tough to RTB, but you can do it. Dude he is talkin bout walking back to the CC after launch shutting off LC and then leaving the CC and walking your fat butt back to your SC =P i'v done that before itsj ust a pain in the butt to do. Now i just land on planet kill the engines, set all my marines to search put 2 marines in each SC i don't use and then put 1 pilot in each FC, its not full proof but it makes it alot harder for the enemy to steal anything, only lost 1 pilot that way =
  11. Hmmm thats a good idea never thought to have my units escort a star station =P
  12. Can you tell me where you park your CC to trade? i put mine on moon-02 of the lyris system
  13. Thats what i forgot to do is turn off launch control. Heh fond a few SC's out and about as well as 2 fighter craft....Yep i was pretty pissed when i docked back on to my CC and found that i had 98% of my hull left....
  14. Were do you guys leave your CC when you take a shuttle to go do some trade runs? I found if i leave mine on a planet resig makes it crash =(
  15. Thats probably true Dark Basic Pro is the way to go, plus Dark Basic dosnt have a GUI....
  16. quote:I have been 3D modeling for a living for quite some years. I'm very proficiant with Maya and 3D Studio Max and can model just about anything in great detail. I'm just looking into putting my models and worlds into games. So I have begun exploring where to begin making basic 3D games. Do you have any suggestions for someone who is just starting to explore programming? I am currently exploring DarkBASIC which I hear is good for starting out. I'm checking out the trial now and will buy it if I can learn anything. Have you heard of this and / or ever tried it? Do you have a better place for someone to go to start out? I think one day, I can get a game out there that has great modeling and graphics, I just need to begin the hard part now LOL. Thanks [smile] I'm looking to get into SOMETHING, just don't know where to start really. LOL I use darkbasic pro, it is nice plus the particle engine is very very good, you'll never beable to make games like UC or anything but you can make some very nice ones with it.
  17. Firestorm. Why? I guess its just what you like. I like its ability to beat the crap-o out of just about any ship. But i also like the battlecruiser MKIII. The firestorm has 10 (or more?) PTA turrents so beating up FC's is easy. Really its just what ship you like more. i'v tryed diffrent ships but i like the firestorm. Guess because it holds 8 fighters and 4 SC's and a nice load of land vehicles ect. Its just a all around good ship.
  18. I have found earth to wraith selling OTS missles does it for me but eventually you'll use your CC and all your SC's to hull like 30-50 OTS missles and wamo you make around 1 mill per missle. Its a nice one its the only one i really use although i have used the majoris one its good for fast cash but im in no rush.
  19. quote: Uhhh... light speed isn't possible... Einstein's relativity theory states that as you reach the speed of light, your mass increases to infinity (weird, huh? o.O). Not only that but peripheral objects would percieve you as being frozen in time, while you would see objects around you as passing through time at an infinite rate. Armageddon would happen instantly. You'd miss it... heh. The only reason photons can hit light speed is cuz they don't weigh anything (literally). Not even a fusion drive can get ya there. About the maximum speed you can attain... Just the little 15-year-old's 10 cents worth. :-D I know this thread is old and dead but i can't resist. Okie here it is. No one can assume that reaching light speed is impossible although Einstein was a friggin smart man. He can only ASSUME that light speed is impossible to reach. When infact no one can say it is or isnt yet as our science isnt that far advanced now in 100 years or so if our science is advanced that far then we'll see but as far as im concerned anything is possible.
  20. I got the same results as you which arnt to uhhh hmmmm resulting.....there hahaha new word...i guess..... But currently i have my own problem with UC which im discussing on the prime fleet forums.
  21. quote: OK, went back to testing DF, I left FC's 7,8,1,&2 with pilot and RIO in close proximity to pixan all night with SAD and escort orders(invulnerability mode on, of course). Today the pilots had increased their kills by anywhere from 4 (roamer) to 9 (scorpion), with rogue scoring 5 and shadow 8. It appears that they were in a continuous dogfight for about 7 hours. No DF or BA increases observed (AI went up though). Incidentally, they all still had five missiles out of their original load. LOL i'd think after like that many hours of dog fighting they'd got up atleast 1 point i bet SC is hating you right now. LOL.
  22. Eh i like my earth to wraith OTS trade route its quick easy and not to many enemys around once i start to max out the amount of OTS missles i can have onboard (IE the most expensive ones) in my SC i will use my CC or maybe i'll get a nice transport for a little while i think since i have Fleet C&C now in my game that i can order a transport to me then leave my CC and get in the transport no? Does it not work like that? If it dosnt then oh well i just like using my SC because my CC is so slow its a firestorm i like it though its a good ship =).
  23. Eh i'll just let it go i'll just play my reg game and use my Fleet C&C which im itching to use BTW lol. Saint not you ruin your trading idea's or what not but if you trade OTS missles from galcom to wraith you can make upto 1.1 mill per missle. There are a few other items i used to trade but i cannot remember i think FC assets and the likes make you a pretty penny too. But the OTS missles are the best as far as i know. especially the highest priced one at wraith it will get you 2 mill more or less. But OTS-Tanix i think is the one i trade all the time then the highest one being the OTS whatever the highest priced one is LOL....forgot the name but have fun man.
