Discussions / Sproginators Ban
« on: October 18, 2013, 04:17:39 PM »
So, i've recently been talking to sproginator via steam, and apparently he got banned by gothars (first temporary, later on perma) for apparent offences against him (against gothars, that is), and insults that were thrown on steam (which were obviously not - there's evidence to support this).

(The evidence is condensed - it's all in this spoiler though)

steam logs
Steam logs removed by Trylobot on 10-19-2013, because it was rude of you to post them in the first place, without Alex's permission. Do not do this again.

I don't really see how this would deserve a permanent ban - yeah, i could understand a temp ban but a perma... seems a bit overkill to be honest.

Discussions / Whelp, that's me leaving then.

I never actually expected this time to come around (and certainly not for me, but alas, here it is.

Simply and shortly put, i'm leaving this community. As for the reasons why, well, it got... Docile? Boring? Lifeless? Honestly, i can't answer that, but it just doesn't have the same amount of attraction it used to have before, to me, and that's... Why i am leaving.

So yeah. Goodbye, aufweidershen, and all that. It's been a fun ride, but this is the end station for me.

Modding / Polka mod
« on: April 10, 2013, 10:09:50 AM »
May cause: Insanity, trauma, sillyness-seizure, etc. use with caution.

Hey all!

Alrighty, so, i spent the last hour (procrastinating, mostly :P) making this little mod i thought would be good for lulz, haha. The mod adds and replaces all vanilla music with polka music. Use with caution, as stated in the disclaimer.

Tip: Incase you're feeling REALLY insane, go get Psiyon's Starsector SUPER Edition for extra lulz. Use at your own risk.

Questions? Read the FAQ below. Didn't get an answer? Well, ask the question then!


Q: Why would you want to do this? WHY?????

A: Because i can. And it's still april.

Q: Soo, what does this mod do?

A: CONGRATULATIONS!! You've somehow missed the entire piece of text above and somehow saw this. Go back and read.

Q: How big is the mod?

A: 39.54 MB (slow connections advise). It's music only, nothing else.

Q: Is music the only thing you're going to add?

A: Yes. Only polkas too. If you find a good one (That you have license to/can use under CC/have authority to use/whatever) Link me a DL (DL ONLY, NOT YOUTUBE LINK) and the name of the creator and i might add it in. However, if popular demand for silly, stupid things is high enough, i might go out of my way and make a stupid silly mod.

Q: Is this your "secret" project?

A: No. Definitely not.

Suggestions / Planets.
« on: April 08, 2013, 02:01:21 PM »
Now that I've begun work on a secret little modding project of mine that is... well, secret so far, it has always bugged me exactly how small the planets in combat appear in relation to on the camapign. It really (well, to me atleast) destroyed a little sense of scale there. So, i had this idea of stretching and scaling-up the planet sizes to properly match what they actually are, on the combat screen, at times even filling the screen as a static background. It would then actually give the players a sense of scale, and tiny-ness, because i somehow don't think a ~400m big paragon should appear equally large as a few thousand kilometer big planet.

tl;dr stretch and scale-up planets in combat to better resemble planets.

Whaddya think? :)

Discussions / Spacestation 13! (SS13)
« on: March 26, 2013, 07:49:43 AM »
Hey there!

So, me and a few guys have decided to host a little RP on a game called spacestation 13 (SS13).
The game is entirely about doing just that, RPing (Role Playing), and fully supports it. The premise behind our RP is that the police (Or security forces) will arrest someone, at some point in on the game, and have him/her be experimented on, etc. The subject will eventually escape, because of the help of one scientist, but that is about all we have set in stone.

If you want to join, you can do so by getting the game (which is free, forever. No money needed to be paid, at all)
(requires beyond, you can get it here , and you will need to sign up for an account, which is free, and goes fast. After that, nothing else is needed aside from that)

Post in this thread if you want to join in on the fun, and we will handle our communications on the Starfarer Skype chat , but it really isn't needed. Though you can chat with us more directly there prior game launch, again, it isn't needed. Once i set the server up, and start it, i'll post the link here. Currently, it isn't running.

Discussions / Spriter.

Hey there guys!

Well, as some of you may know (which isn't many at all :p) i'm going to start a vanilla-balanced mod, very very soon. I've got some sketches and art drawn, but i just cannot transform them into sprites, so, i ask the forums here. Any good artists around that are readily available and can sign up with me?


Discussions / Gmod RP (Roleplay)
« on: February 26, 2013, 01:20:01 PM »

Well, me and a few guys where thinking of setting up a Gmod RP on friday.

So, essentially, what it would be, is a version of hide 'n seek, in which we have a hunted, who is allowed to use all weapons, explosives included, and we have the hunters (all the other players), who are not allowed to use explosives, but every other weapon. The hunters goal is to locate and terminate the hunted, and the hunter that killed the hunted, gets to become the next hunted, and so on. For the first time, the hunted is randomly selected, and given a one advantage to go and hide as far away from the hunted as possible.

No instant-kill weapons are allowed, but aside from that, pretty much anything is, that is not explosive for the hunters. Also, no NPC spawning or changing character.

The maps you might need (As we'll be hosting on them) are:


and rp_evocity_v2d

We'll be hosting at about 9PM GMT on friday, and possibly on saturday/sunday. If you're interested in joining, leave a post down here so i know all of you who'll be joining! :D

The list of people so far:

People that are absolutely sure they'll join:

Upgradecap (Me! :D)

People that might possibly join until then:


Discussions / A book I'm writing.
« on: February 15, 2013, 07:37:31 AM »
Well, here's a little book I'm writing (so far, it's only in the prologue stage, recently just started on chapter 1) and i wanted to hear your opinions.

Whaddya think? :)

Got a new chapter out - chapter three. Always use the above link for the latest version. :)

Discussions / RP (Role-Playing)
« on: February 04, 2013, 10:57:41 AM »
Okay, so, me and a few friends have set up a pretty decent RP skype chat, and we're looking for new members, so, if anyone wants to join in, please do post here, and i'll make sure that happens. :)

Everyone is welcome, newbie and pro.

Discussions / Dem conspiracy theories. x)
« on: January 30, 2013, 06:26:13 AM »

A conspiracy theory, that, like many others, fail to provide any proof whatsoever.

I watched it half-way through before i lost it. xD

Tell me whaddya you think about it, and how long you endured before loosing it. Haha :)

Discussions / DCS games.
« on: January 15, 2013, 11:42:40 AM »
So, i bought DCS A-10C and Black Shark during the steam sales (both are military sims) and i have to say, they are purely epic. Both games are about flying a either the K-50 Russian attack helicopter, or the A-10C American ground attack plane.

You can find all of their games here:

Or just the A10-C and K-50 on steam.

Discussions / Imagine a world (Kickstarter game)
« on: January 15, 2013, 11:40:01 AM »
Saw this game on KS and thought that it could be epic, but so far, it has gotten very little publicity, and is mostly unknown. So i thought i'd post it here, and perhaps give it a few more backers, eh? Any publicity is good publicity, they say. :)

Discussions / SeaCraft
« on: January 11, 2013, 09:25:44 AM »
Heyo! I found this new game on IndieGoGo, it's called SeaCraft, and to me, it looks very epic. Persistent campaign with alot of awesome ships and all? :D

Discussions / Lucid dreaming.
« on: January 03, 2013, 03:26:03 PM »
This may sound a little weird, but from what i've heard about it, it has the possibility to be awesome.

For those of you that don't know what lucid dreaming is, I'd suggest googling it.

Now, anyone else here that has had lucid dreams? Perhaps on a more regular, controlled basis? I could always use advice. :)

Discussions / Steam offline mode.
« on: January 02, 2013, 08:44:33 AM »
I am attempting to play a few steam games now that i have no internet for the time being. But steam just says that i need to connect because it doesn't have any login details. Anyone that knows what i can do? This way worked for me yesterday, and i didn't have any internet yesterday either.
