heh, awful lonely . .. .

Recommended Posts

hello all . .

Cpt. Stone here. ive been playing UC offline for quite a while now (a year and a half/on and off) and have decided to try and enter the online world for some hieghtened fun . . and some one to answer my hails. unfourtunatly, i can only access two servers via the join mp server option in my start menu (server 3 and 4, FYI).

dont get me wrong-two servers are fine, but no-one is in them??? i can be flying around for hours on server three . .and nothing???

i pm'ed Adm. Tiger (please forgive me, i forgot the rest of his name.). he advised me that most people play in fleets, which i guess makes sense.

he also told me that if i waited in server four, there would be auto spawning npc's for me to play around with until some one arrives.

sound advice, but no-one came. and to make matters worse, the npc baddies dont fight back.??they jump in, and then float there . . i actually got my Spacestar (SC-EIRE) to . .. play with it as adults do . . .(had to turn PTA off), which was amusing for the first half hour, but when no one showed, got boring.

now, i mean no offense in this post. if i offend any one, please let me know, and i will pm an apology personally to you . . i just felt that to get a solution, one must thouroughly explain the problem.

my problem basically is that i want to play online, but have no one to play with.if any one knows where to go . .either alternate servers, or certain times of the day, please reply . .

im so tired of drifting .. .alone . . .

(p.s. if any one wants to know . . my spacestar actually drestoyed the offensive Ship soon after .. .mounting, a rather unusual way to go, but it still made me laugh.)

hello all, it cpt. Stone ere . .

firstly, to Admiral Tigerclaw (heh, hope thats right*grins*), well, i bought it in limerick in . . .march/april 2003, so . . .lol.

and concerning the ai . ..

sp ai, i find is progressivly intelligent,imo, and i feel is queit capable. that being said, it is no-where near a match for a human . . the ai may eventually learn your weakness's (blind spots and so forth) but a humans complete unpredictabilaty give human players an edge.

now, server fours ai, i have found, is just about intelligent enough to get enemy ships into a hyper jump, towards the nearest object. (my fav tactic is to shoot the buggers as they come out . . .not exactly hounerable, but hey, i like life, even if its game life.*grins*). the second the jump is completed, the ship 'drifts' at its slowest speed, in no direction, apparently. and drifts . . .and drifts . . .

now, im all for easy xp, but i hate it when the target dosnt even flinch . . .as stated earlier, my ship actually had its way with one such ship (full sheild,amour and hull, straight off the assembly line) to the point that i accidentally destroyed the other ship(and damaged my own).*grins* not entirly my proudest moment . . .

thanks for your help, hopefully, i will either be proud enough to fight by your side, or hide in your blind spot . .

No problem Captain, just dont laugh everytime I get dis-connected

Although I did find it pretty funny when I went planetside, got dis-connected and then rejoined, all I see in my chat window is "lol.. did you crash"

(for your info Ethan I was VTOLing at 1200 feet launching shuttles)

I wont ask you if you need escort next time though, you clearly dont need it

LOL, really had a blast on server 4 last night. Raider khan, tried to take me out, but got himself killed chasing me into range of the space station.

His second attempt, he attacked me planetside, while I was attempting to retrieve the drone, he hadnt destroyed yet...he fought a brave, fight, even to his death...of course, I didnt escape, without paying a price.

My poor ship crashed into the mud,the same time he hit the ocean... with minimal damage. i found my ship 3600 meters beneath the island, after I had ejected.

alone and stranded on an island...couldnt get any allies to bring me a fighter from a base...geesh. But, thats ok,, I was STILL the last man standing...very slow and agonizing death ahead...lol

I spent an hour , or hour and a half, on that island, before disconnecting and going to bed.

Most fun I have EVER had, with ANY MP game, I have ever played!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hat's off to you SC...(this is for real). Your a Genius
