Re: The New Earth Defense
Earth Defence sounds like the title of an X-Com game based on flying Interceptors during UFO Defense/Enemy Unknown.

Being as the language is english, that would make the English spelling the correct one, no?

Both are English spellings. :wtf:

Defense is typically American-English.

"Truth" is the opinion of the majority which it can enforce on the minority. Members of the minority have two choices: join the bandwagon or think. Those who do not fall into line will be brutally crushed.
The tools to maintain order are: lies, double standards, and hypocrisy. The most powerful and the most insidious of them is hypocrisy

Re: The New Earth Defense

American-English is a dialect which is rife with mispronunciations and mis-spellings. "honor", for instance, should be "Honour". The dropped 'u' is just plain lazy.

And you uptight Brits are too damn formal.
17:37:02   Quanto: I want to have sexual intercourse with every space elf in existence
17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

"Lazy"?  Try "efficient."  You don't pronounce the damn letter anyway, so why throw it in there?  We're trying to make your language a bit more sensible. :p

For the oblivious, that was sarcasm.

Point conceded :P

Well, actually, the U is somewhat pronounced. It implies a different nuance of pronunciation than simply 'or'. /EnglishTeacher

Well, that's what any British English teacher will tell ya, and it's true. You just have to hear a brit and an american say the word.

But, I'll agree that DefenSe and DefenCe is pretty much interchangeable, but deFENCE makes more sense, as that's talking about a barrier.

Yes, but to "De-fence" would be to remove the fence, removing said barrer. ;7

Haha, win ^^

Nah, it'd be similar to demarcate.

The de- is not a negative qualifier. Otherwise de-fense would be to de fense (Whatever a fense is). Defence means to establish a boundary/perimeter and to hold it. (In essence.)

Yes, I know you weren't being serious, but, I thought I'd point it out.

Progress has been slow, and we've lost a lot of team members, but Mr. Tantalus53 is a champion and you only need one good FREDder to pull off a great mod.

It'll be done when it's done. In the meantime I suggest you check out Wings of Dawn, Vassago's Dirge and War in Heaven.

D'aw... that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, Genny B!

Well yeah. We normally would be moving like wildfire (and i use that term loosely) but as the soul FREDer on the team (though we might have another one eventually), my enrollment into College has slowed me down. Not to worry however, As time progresses and my scedual gets more regular, I'll be picking my pace back up, so no worries   :D

yep, most of the assets are done, we are mainly waiting for the final mission to be made, then beta testing to make them perfect :)
just recently we made the change to use Fury AI, so the mod will be even more awesome  :yes:
