Apologies, I am used to taking credit for everything. Mother taught me well.

Anyway now we can discuss how it feels to live in a post-Project Horizons custom group world.

Curiously enough? Exactly like it felt to live in a pre-Project Horizons custom group world. Except a little hungrier. brb, dinner.

For a space sim with Cap ships I'd recommend the X2 and X3 games by Egosoft. How many caps you own is up to you as you can buy them from the various shipyards or use a script package to cheat them in. They are a Germany based company and sell both hardcopy and on Steam. They also support mods and scripts from their forums and with the X3: Terran Conflict game a good number of the ship models were made for the X3: Reunion game that they hired the modders for the later game.

Ah, no more green. It appears that all of us were cured of whatever illness we contracted.

Praise Somber! For it is He who has banished this illness from our bodies and our souls!

I'm not sure if it's quite what you are looking for, as I guess I would classify it as more of a party game than an individual simulator, but I liked Artemis. It's pretty simple, but a good way to spend some time with friends. Also, it's free/pay by donation.

It wasn't what I was looking for, but I found it after Kattlarv mentioned it.

I'll look at X2, my brother has it in his Steam pile.

Sort of, anyway. That one's free, too, and while it's not exactly a "sim", it's one of the best games of all time. Be sure you install the voice and remix packs. (Since I can't remember whether or not I've pimped that game out in the PH thread yet.)
The one problem is that, due to copyright issues, they don't have permission to put in the 3DO intro and ending videos, so you're stuck with the original PC slideshows. But you can probably figure out when to watch each one. Lyra I recommend both versions, really -- each has its own charm.

@Controlling a capital ship
There's always Star Trek: Bridge Commander! It's damn hard to find a copy (or was when I set out to buy it), but the game is really fun, has some great mods, and the graphics for the actual ship-to-ship fights aren't half bad (IIRC). The characters on the bridge itself are, well... dated, to say the least, but recreating the Battle of Wolf 359 was really cool. That, and sawing Cardassian ships in half with well-placed phasers. And flying inside a Romulan warbird with a Defiant and nuking their warp core (this is actually kinda hard to do).

Ever heard of starfarer? It's a new indy game that's still in development. No in-game story yet, but the combat is in place and reminds me of some of these screenshots.

Ok, tried The Ur-Quan Masters...
I died very quickly the first time because of some probe thing that could easily outmaneuver me.
Second time, I managed to upgrade my ship and get some progress... then the probe killed me again.
Didn't save.
:C
Fun game though.

After a day of reflection I think I'll pay to have a small marker put up in the south east corner of the estate to reflect our tragic loss yesterday, and every year on the anniversary we can all gather round and share memories.


And I nearly lost power twice now, love the rate, hate the fact only my computer is on an UPS and not my router.

Queue Somber and company all standing in front of the grave saluting something akin to the ending cutscenes of those Metal Gear Solid games.

I will now visualize Somber with an eye-patch and bandana from here on in, no exceptions.

Man I fell behind 5 pages. I don't know why but I seem to attract this "Life" thing despite never having one in the first place.

Psalm: Discussed to death. I'm not beating the dead pony.

PH Group: Hey guys I'm ba- *sees headstone* okay what happened and how do I find a time machine to see it happen?

Games: PC MASTER RACE. I enjoy being able to play games without having to worry about losing all my controllers (the two I had, the two my friends/family gave me, and the one I bought. I think I might have a controller stealing boggart in my house).

@Caliomhe: Any other psychological analyses you want to share? My curiosity has been awoken.

Most annoying ship to fight and play, also most fun. You might want to check a guide on those buggers. They're von neuman something-or-others and will self-replicate ad infinitum if you don't stop them.

Seriously, I had lightning strike at least two times just outside my house. It was really, really loud, and to be honest rather terrifying.

Fun game though.
The Probes are something of a bitch in the early game. It's usually best not use your flagship in combat until you've upgraded and configured it into a real battlewagon, or at LEAST until you've got a full compliment of thrusters and turning jets. Instead, either use your warp escape device to run away (Esc), or get really good at knocking out Probes with an Earthling Cruiser or Fwiffo's ship. Either way takes some skill, but the Eluder can often trick a Probe into chasing it and lay waste with its rear-launched missiles. And unlike the Cruiser, it's fast enough to break contact when necessary.

Just realize: a Probe gives you 550 RU in salvage when you kill it. A Cruiser costs 1100 RU. If you can't take down at least two probes for each ship you lose, you're better off running.*

*Unless you're at Bingo fuel.

That was a Slylandro Probe. Spike

So, I was browsing youtube, and I just discovered this song :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2eF0vO24m8o

Princess Addictia - Hush Now

From the description :


" The inspiration for this track came from Fallout Equestria Project
Horizons. Everyone who read the story will know which scene this is
dedicated to.
"



Not the best song from Addictia by his own judgment, but I wanted to share it with you guys.

Bah, I was on a campout one time and lighting struck a tree right in the middle of the campsite.
I think I was the only one in our group that broke out into maniacal laughter...

@SilentCarto
Seriously, Starfarer. It's a cool game and you should check it out.

I sold the cruiser I started with, and Fwiffo's. My weapons aren't powerful enough to fight anything and the crew always ends up slaughtered by lightning strikes and landing in earthquakes. It took me a while to realize that crew=HP. Thanks for telling me how to use the escape device, I never found out how.
Glad I started saving the game, it is much more enjoyable.

Quiet for Dubstep, but still too loud for the scene. It does, however, convince me that you could convey that emotion with dubstep style sounds- I just don't dig the jive that's been laid down here.

Song in general, though, I liked.
