    Elite Dangerous

    Anyone following this game? I'm an old school Frontier geek. I have the original Elite, Frontier, and Frontier: First Encounters. I've played them all as much as I've played BC3K, BCM, and UC, Now that Elite Dangerous is finally being developed (using a Kickstarter to fund the damn thing) old David wants to force everyone to be online? Does that mean no single player? I don't know. I'm torn. I comprehend that updating a constantly evolving persistent universe is better done through online updates, but what if I don't or can't be online 24/7? I can't play the damn game without an internet connection? WTF? If it's a lame ass attempt at copy protection, then I think I might want my pre-release money back. I'm just venting. Pisses me da phuck off! Whatever happened to Battlecruiser online? Now that would've been a kick-ass game!

    Who likes Bitcoin?

    So is there anyone who is getting to cryptocurrancies? Bitcoin, Etherium. Litecoin, ect? I've been in the space for a few months now, and overall it's been both good and bad. I'm interested in what ya'll think. Have you made any money? Lost money? Day trade or HODL?

    Just another caveat here: be careful which exchanges you use. Some are better that others. Also, if you are not currently trading an asset, DO NOT store those assets on exchanges!! Store them on either a paper wallet, a desktop software wallet, or a hard (cold) wallet. A hard wallet is a USB device that stores crypto coins offline!

    Who likes Bitcoin?

    I personally wouldn't advise Coinbase.com as a gateway to Fiat/Crypto conversion site. I've had too many issues with Coinbase, and I have started using Gemini. That being said, it all still really new, so opinions vary. Canshow - good hearing from you! Long time no chat! I will definitely check out that discord server. I trade cryptos daily, but I also have a traditional job, and I'm hoping to move out of that into cryptos full time.

    Who likes Bitcoin?

    I got into it about Nov 2017, when BTC was at around $20k USD, Then, over the next few months the price plummeted to it's current price of $8400 USD, so it's definitely not for the feint of heart. I started with about $500 USD and have turned that into about $2500 over several months. Still, I like it because you can get into the markets with a relatively small investment, however - the crypto space is not currently regulated so it's buyer beware. I currently hold Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH). Litecon (LTC), and Cardano (ADA). I've been day trading the other alt to BTC tokens and doing pretty good. There is a lot to learn. But I like that aspect of it as well.
  6. In steam version UC:CE IN GAME: Go to SYSTEM the last tab should be RESUME/RESTORE Instead it's: -menu_quit_save_resume_menu_quit_save_restore which leads back to the title menu without saving character profile and assets. No way to save. No way to restore.

    Save Error UC:CE

    Derek! How do I fox this problem?

    Save Error UC:CE

    How do I fix it? Any ideas? This game is frustrating without being able to save.

    Elite Dangerous

    Necro-ing my old thread: Anyone still playing this game? I'm pretty active ATM. Lowly indie, flying a Cobra MKIII running contraband and slaves! Anyone else playing? I'd love to get SC and a few old BC commanders to create a faction and take over the bubble! That would be epic!

    Into the Stars

    Interesting space-sim starting on kick-starter. http://youtu.be/5S26ZbHTxEs It kinda reminds me a lot of BC3K/BCM/UC. However, despite the video, Derek definitely came up with a few their "new" ideas - first. It should be a pretty kewl game as long as they don't succumb to the lowest common denominator and dumb it down for the masses.

    Universal Combat Advanced

    I know I'm prolly wasting my breath here, but wtf. Suggestions if you make a UCCE Advanced addition: * Bring back the 'switch to' command for shuttles and fighters. NPC pilots CAN NOT trade with stations and CAN NOT jump through flux fields. At least I haven't found a way to work this. * Something in the game makes combat sounds incessant and prevalent ingame, even when there is no combat in the system, no combat in probe systems, and no intruders. Please look into this. * Allow some way to add music ingame without the current, complicated file format system you have currently. I can't just drop any old MP3 into the music dir and make it work. It has to be a specific codex, and format. * Fighters in escort of CC - STOP being in escort when they jump through gates. They default to SAD. If there is a hostile star-station in the region, the fighters will jump to that star-station and DIE! I have to manually click on each fighter ( after jump) and put them all back in escort. * Also, there used to be an ALL function in the fighter command menu, where I could order all fighters to perform the same command. Please reinstate that feature. Remember. Customer service is just as important and product production! I know this is a niche title, but you should make the game as enjoyable and stress free as possible (without dumbing it all down for the masses). You really could get it right this time, if you just listen to the people who actually play this game. Space-simmers aren't overly concerned with graphics, what we care about is game-play. Graphics are easy to update. Game-play - not-so-much. Thank you You can ban me now.

    What Spare Parts

    As far as spare parts, your Tradcom will tell you what you need. On the fly, out in space, droids, droids droids.

    Universal Combat CE v2.0 Released FREE on Steam

    Love this game! It's eats too damn much of my free time though.

    Supply Stations in Space??

    I think they were supposed to be for EV mutiplayer FPS combat.

    Apogee

    [RP] Pluto/Sol Shingen walked out of the engineering bay. Bodies littered the corridor. He went to work. He lifted the first body and dragged it to the end of the corridor. He went for the next. Mariko came out of the engineering bay, "There are too many bodies. We either jump to empty space, or we bury them here." "No one cares anyway," [/RP]
  16. That's only happened to me while viewing a planet in tacops.

    Universal Combat Advanced

    Kudos to Derek for releasing UCCE 2.0 on Steam That really says a lot about how much you believe in this franchise. You're one of the few developers that have the integrity to release legacy software for free. I really respect that. 'nuff said.

    January 2015 Insurgent Fleet Muster

    Sign me up. The Devil's Hand is dead. The first and only Indie fleet is gone. The insurgents are prolly my best fit. The Deathstrike is a capable ship with an outstanding crew, Born and bred in combat.

    Universal Combat Advanced

    I can't wait for this release. It should be awesome! Derek, just please play-test it first and make sure that all the planets and moons in the game can planet-fall without a crash to desktop! Well.. except the hostile ones. We can't land on those anyway... Been there, done that. Not a good plan.

    Universal Combat Advanced

    Hyper-drive recharge rates do increase with upgraded engines and reactors. Also crew XP will increase over time, but I don't know if that increase the recharge rate for the hyper-drive.

    TV - Syfy's Ascension

    I'm watching it. I don't have many hopes for a Syfy title anymore, since they canceled Firefly. Sue me.

    Into the Stars

    I just hope it's not on a rail. Good, hard-core, open-ended, space-sim RPGs haven't been done in a long while.

    Universal Combat Advanced

    True. I've always wanted to play a cross between BC3K, Elder Scrolls and FFE. Now that would be a kick-ass space-sim!

    Universal Combat Advanced

    I think Derek's idea of a revamped and updated UC would work. I think it would sell. There are a lot of gamers out there waiting for a DX 11 version of BC3K. Finished, and without all the bugs. I think he could use what he has learned from LOD and All Aspect to finish the ground combat and assets for UC. Plus, maybe flesh out the galaxy, trading system, add a few NPCs, and maybe a way to buy and upgrade ships? The tech has changed a lot since 2004.

    Universal Combat Advanced

    I really wish you'd do a kickstarter to finally finish Universal Combat. I mean the game was ground-breaking, innovative, and before it's time, but it was ultimately unfinished.
