Star Control 2 HD and Fan Sequel
There is something right here... something which makes my eyelids retract and my breath hold. I sense the result of a thousand hours of work. And I have located the source of these inspiring emanations, they come from the HD mod for The Ur-Quan Masters!

 Game

If you liked this, see: Project 6014

I hope you like to *play* guys, I certainly will.

You know, I've always wondered what unspeakable horrors they uncovered that resulted in their destruction.....

Ahh, Star Control 2, that really brings me back.. To this date, easily one of the best games I have ever played, that somehow captured that elusive balance between sci-fi and comedy. I'll be off, trying to drop a cigar in a Traddash Torch-class ship's drive core, attempting to get the afterburners to work. Should be easier than explaining those Monty Python vids to the crew..

Re: Star Control 2 HD and Fan Sequel
P 6014 is a fan "collab" to have the community make Star Control 3.
 
HD mod is simply The Ur-Quan Masters with a face & sound lift.

 
Re: Star Control 2 HD and Fan Sequel
Oh hey, it's about time Star Control 2 got a sequel. :drevil:

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

Speaking as someone who just started Star Control 3 again, yeah I agree.

 
Re: Star Control 2 HD and Fan Sequel
I don't think that Project 6014 is finished yet?

THIS IS AWESOME! Why the **** did no one tell me that there was a HD mod? Let alone a sequel?

Re: Star Control 2 HD and Fan Sequel
There's a bug right now where lander/ship/mission text (not dialogue sequences) gets cut off on the right side on anything other than the lowest resolution.  Supposedly this is fixed in the next alpha release (2), so anyone who isn't looking to play it right now might want to wait a while before downloading.

I really hope someone adds an extension that keeps track of notes and stuff.

Ah, some kind fan did: http://members.quicknet.nl/lm.broers/download/sc2-starmap.png
Just print that out, and write/draw notes on the front and/or back. :P

Re: Star Control 2 HD and Fan Sequel
More useful, certainly. But less printable, and much more spoilery.

Re: Star Control 2 HD and Fan Sequel
I played Ur Quan masters for about 1 year straight. Now I can't wait for the sequel. ;)
