if I can find a talent in myself which doesn't involve just sitting on my butt and playing FS2Open all day, I would be glad to help the project!

So you're not willing to help beta/bug test then? Burn him!!!!

:p

Testing doesn't require you to play all day. You just have to know what to look for.

"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

Due to the fact this is not Just Another Day here on HLP, but quite the opposite, I assume it is my duty to give a welcome speech to FIZ and FSHero.

Welcome to the HLP. This fully operational space station is now leaving the Blue Planet after assisting in Earth Defense.

There are emergency exits to the left and to the right. These exits are untested and the escape pods beyond them are practically Derelict, because every time the HLP was in distress, some Deus Ex Machina saved it. Use at your own risk.

Under your seats there is a flamethrower, but if you want to use it to make an Inferno on the HLP, be advised it's out of napalm. Feel free to use it as a huge water gun, or perhaps as a giant baseball bat.

Above are the ventilation shafts. Carl the Shivan lives there. If you meet him, and give him your lunch or lunch money, and he might leave you alone. If not, you will need the Cardinal Spear to protect yourselves.
But the Spear, along with the Almighty Hammer of Ban is usually locked away, Beyond the Red Line, by the Admins. The two Relics are protected by a Cerberus and a Watchdog. You'll really need Teeth of the Tiger, or at least a Tiger's Claw to get past those. Attempt at your own risk.

If you take the staircase down, after Crossing the Styx you'll go Into the Depths of Hell. The Prophecy says that Cthulu has his residence somewhere in there, but I've personally only seen a few Shadows of Kraken. Visit at your own risk.

The station also has Windmills on the roof for some reason, possibly to power the external beam cannons.

So, grab a Bosch Beer if you get Homesick and enjoy the ride. We will be arriving on the Second Front to counter a Silent Threat anytime now.

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

Tango Yankee. :)

Guess my next welcome speech will also be a bit away from the traditional ones with jokes which not even relatively old members know. It should also be a bit more refined now that I won't be experimenting so much.

Me neither, but I think it's a fun thing if done right.
And I don't think a speech every 2 years is a habit.  :p

Thanks for treating me to a welcome speech!

Any chance of sticky-ing this thread, so that all new people who want to say "thank you" know where to post?

Beta testing sounds interesting. How do I go about this?

Finally, myself and at least one other friend are interested in playing Multiplayer. Keep an eye out in the Multiplayer sub-forum for more info!

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Hi HLPBB!

I just got FS2 and FS2 Open with the mods today! I really felt like playing a space combat sim and FS2 gets all the best reviews.
I tried it first without FS2 Open and tbh it was pretty bad on omy 1920 x 1200 but after installing FS Open and following instructions, it now looks amazing!
I'm gonna play through the FS campaign first and do them in order. I can't wait! Hopefully multiplayer will be possible too.

Really, I guess I'm just blown away by the quality of FS2 Open and the modding community for this game. It's incredibly impressive.
I should've tried FS2 a long time ago  :)

Re: Semi-official new people thread!
Yeah... How about we limit it to that ONE speech and make it the new official and move it to the top. That way we don't have pages and pages of beams and speeches the last one degenerated into.
