Everything Else / I FOUND IT!
« on: March 02, 2013, 04:40:35 AM »
After over 10 years of looking, I finally found the game that got me into ASCII Sector! It's called Space Trader, it was a Palm OS game I played on a Platoon mates Palm Pilot in Kuwait in 2002. Last night I found Java version on source forge! AWESOME!

Everything Else / Best Christmas Present Ever
« on: December 30, 2012, 08:59:26 PM »
For those of you in the forum who remember, I've been writing a story for going on seven years now. Well I also wrote a short story that takes place in the same universe. On the 27th I got Kindle to publish the short story. I'm so excited and I've spent the last two days going back over my main body of work to make corrections and whatnot, 380 pages worth. I'm on page 117 now.

Who's won big at the Casino ship? And are there fixers at the Casino?

General / Has this happened to anyone else?

This is the second Base I've been to. Is this something new in .7.1.4?

Bugs / Enter is no longer working?
« on: July 23, 2012, 01:37:25 AM »
The last few times I've played, whenever I go to make to a selection at a terminal or even to enter combat mode Enter no longer works. Somehow the Space Bar had taken that over and it's throwing me off.

I can't even save my game because enter is not working.

A play on one of my favorite ST:TNG episodes

Shakka when the walls fell!!!

Everything Else / Cobalt Alpha is out!
« on: December 17, 2011, 03:00:36 PM »
For those of us Minecraft fans, the Mojang/Oxeye collaboration Cobalt has release the first  Alpha build. I'm excited, bought it last night. So far it only has survival and multiplayer.

Congrats to CK for getting married. Hope coming years are filled with joy and happiness.

Everything Else / State of the "Sector"
« on: June 12, 2011, 06:09:41 AM »
Just checked the forum, saw that CK found a job (congrats CK!) glad its something you like and that it gives you time for dev. I'm having to look for a job myself (this past semester didnt go very well). I got my EMT-B (Emergency Medical Technician - Basic) but finding a job where I live is a quest in itself. Glad you're able to start back up on AS CK! I'm gonna pop over to the Hostile Takeover website and check it out.

Everything Else / Seems the best Indie games come from Europe.
« on: May 07, 2011, 01:08:07 AM »
The title pretty much says it all. My two favorite PC games ASCII Sector and Minecraft come from Denmark and Sweden respectively...

General / Back after a Minecraft hiatus
« on: April 26, 2011, 04:44:47 AM »
Ok so I totally love Minecraft. I've been playing it for abt 2 months now, but I'm taking a break and coming back AS. I've noticed not very much activity on the board. Is everyone/everything ok?

Quest Development / Clearing a planet (or area of a planet) for quests
« on: January 02, 2011, 02:01:10 AM »
A thought had occurred to me today. We have a command to clear a nav point for quests so our carefully planned scene doesn't go awry due to a randomly generated ship. Could we have the same for a planet? Maybe to clear a certain area of passerbys? I've had an idea for another quest but I'd hate to have the quest player have to fight thru everyone on the planet should "something go wrong"

Development Discussion and Suggestions / Jump fuel costs
« on: August 06, 2010, 09:45:13 PM »
I just had a thought whilst running a cargo recovery mission.

It might be nice to have indication of how many bars of jump fuel a particular route would take to travel. If its less than whats in the tank its a go and you can take that route, if not the selection goes red and you have select something closer with a base to refuel at.

Quote from: "Cthulhu"
Syndicate is cool, but UFO is cooler. I remember the 90's,
at day: Play X-com UFO
at night: Watch The X-files.

I've only recently heard of X-Com... And the X-Com remake they're making for XBox or PS3. The 90's for me was Civilization

Quote from: "Cthulhu"
Elite anyone?

Elite as in the game? Or as in the highest ranking at the Mercs Guild?

Bugs / Ship not staying centered on screen
« on: July 26, 2010, 04:24:38 AM »
I just fired up AS and accepted a mission and when I took off from the planet and started flying, my ship moved off screen. Usually the ship stays centered and the background moves. I quit and started it up again and the same thing happened.
