  1. The Use of "Meat Shields"

    Good luck with yours as well. In spite of my post I'm not that sensitive about it. I've got a decent shot at holding it at bay, though I hate the side effects of chemo. I know folks who get really upset. So I won't use the term. I figure they have enough grief; no reason to add to it.
  2. The Use of "Meat Shields"

    So, Do you want to know who killed JFK?
  3. The Use of "Meat Shields"

    I have cancer. I have never found anything like it in a computer game. On the other hand assininity can be found all over the place.
  4. Counting BBs on the Wall

    Countin' BBs On The Wall purloined from the Statler Brothers I keep hearing you're concerned about my happiness. All the while you steam away, it's just cautious, I guess. If I were steaming in your ships, I wouldn't worry none. While you and your friends go hide out, I'm having lots of fun. Counting BBs on the wall, That don't bother me at all. Playing Solitaire till dawn, With a deck of flaming fun. Scouting reds and chatting Captain Kangaroo. Now, don't tell me I've nothing to do. Last night I took a cap alone, pretended you'd come round. As long as I can WASD, it's hard to slow this sailor down. So please don't give a thought to me, I'm really doing fine. You can always find me here, I'm having quite a time. Counting BBs on the wall, That don't bother me at all. Playing Solitaire till dawn, With a deck of flaming fun. Scouting reds and chatting Captain Kangaroo. Now, don't tell me I've nothing to do. Well, it's good to see you, I must go, I know I look a fright. My decks are scorched. My tubes are shot. It's been an awesome fight. And my ships are not accustomed to this hard defeat. So I must go back to my port and find a better fleet. Counting BBs on the wall, That don't bother me at all. Playing Solitaire till dawn, With a deck of flaming fun. Scouting reds and chatting Captain Kangaroo. Now, don't tell me I've nothing to do. Don't tell me I've nothing to do. https://youtu.be/1s8nRL2bPCU
  5. We need Dual Telegraphs.

    If players find that there is an advantage to using it, it will be used. If it's available to everyone, it can hardly be described as unfair. Chording (pressing multiple keys to obtain an effect) has been used in many games. In Descent I had my keyboard laid out with lots of chords. e.g. turn right and left stafe puts you in a clockwise orbit. Workes in FPS games too. Chording left and right telegraph keys is not very hard.

    Marius this is a guide section. A question is not a guide. A question without an appropriate title is just a confusion of pixels. Please post your questions in the General Discussion Forum and include an appropriate title. If you are including your name in order to keep track of your threads you need not bother. The system places a star near threads you have posted in and indicates the author of each thread. You will get faster, more appropriate responses in the general discussion and you will not be cluttering up an informative forum with poorly documented unhelpful threads. I have included a link. Please go there and bookmark it for your future use. Thank you for your kind understanding. This is the second time I've posted this in one of your threads. I begin to lose patience. Regards, Quaffer
  7. New xvm mod now working?

    XVM A pox on all their houses.
  8. Random Generated Maps

    As long as you think of your ship as an aquatic tank you will have trouble surviving a map which has a sparsity of rock. Treat your ship as a ship and realize that survival is achieved through constant variation of heading and speed and you will enjoy sea room.
  9. Which Ocean????

    Not green enough for Michigan. Superior has a similar dark blue shade. I spent thirteen months of my life on Superior, Huron, Michigan and Erie; a long long time ago.
  10. Which Ocean????

    Sorry Lert but someone gave you the wrong info. Ocean is actually modeled after the Mare Erythraeum. They chose that because it's so hard to get to.
  11. Random Generated Maps

    Way back before Alpha I suggested that they randomize spawn and caps. As in they would have several locations for each and one spawn would have several possible balanced locations for its counter point. Teams would not know the location of the cap until it was located by a team member. Scouting would be more important and camping would be less reliable as a defense. If they implemented this on a few existing maps it would breathe new life into them, and into the game.
  12. Random Generated Maps

    No they don't I did a poll on what tiers players would like to see ocean played on. One of the choices was none. Most people who responded wanted ocean to appear in multiple tiers. The ones who chose none were in the minority. They may be a loud minority but a minority none the less.
