Re: Old PC GAmes:Dos to windows 95

I was playing with dos box looking at sim farm, sim life and sim earth and also looked at an old game Star Control 2, I think there is a thrid one on the net with a new up dated version. They had great game ideas but not the graphics or power to do them right. I think there is a gold mine of new ver...

Re: Anyone make any home made energy devices?

I tried used motor oil and aluminum and sodium hydroxide in water. It got pretty darn hot. The oil durned into like a glycerin or pale substance.

I tried to duct tape an estees rocket to a toy truck but it jumped up in the aie and spinned like a fire cracker whizzer.

Any Anno Fans out there?

I have played anno 2070 but Anno 2205 looks great. I even have Anno 1701. But I have to say Anno 2070 would have been perfect were it not for steam. I had to go to a public library before the offline mod worked. But other than that It was good. But I am not great at beating the story line. I like th...

Re: Anyone make any home made energy devices?

I made a home made wind turbine with my grandfather. We just straped a generator on a piece of wood and put a wind vane on it and made a wood blade for it. It turned in the wind. But did not make usable power. You need a special dynamo where the magnets turn to make power instead of high speed motor...

Anyone make any home made energy devices?

One was a crude battery made of aluminum, lead and Epsom salt solution. I got the home made battery to charge to 3.7v Due to charching problems I think I should have drained it or formed the electrodes better. It would run a white led minutes. Maybe I should have used a smaller space and use a hydro...

Old PC GAmes:Dos to windows 95

My favorite games were C&C, Dune 2000, Simcity, simfarm, simcity 2000. I tried Lemings in dosbox and digers or Extractors. I bought that game. The concept is great. But implenmentation is hard for me to play. Graphics are on par with master of orion 2. I liked Outpost and outpost 2. But there was a ...

Re: Centurions are worthless in combat.

How about an ai that uses a combination of tev 9s or fast fire weapons to take out a shield and missiles to destroy armor? But also a mix of atleas 4 diffent kinds of weapons or a suped up xray laser loaded with laser colminators and upgrades at least with thermo missiles that seek targets.

Re: Microsaur Ideas

Why not have dinosaurs from T-rex to brontasaurus and triceritops. These large animals could be taken to planets to make lots of fertilizer or game meat to feed many of the hungy people of the commonweald or if the idea catches on the Confederation.

I posted nuclear technologies for a new scenario or system mod. But fisson damage would be different than thermo and fusion fire howitzer in a few ...

Re: Help! Shield Dilemma!

This is a bit of a cheat, but if you fire from inside an asteroid it can protect your ship if it is big enough to cover your rear. You just fly over a large asteroid, planet or star and leave part of your nose out just farenough to fire and it helps act as a baricade to other sides of your ship, jus...
