Allows you to start building a Monitoring Base.


Doesn't tell you that you are lacking certain resources and /or tech necessary to complete it.

it can take a VERY long time to build deep space stations, i would recommend taking a less micro approach to this scumbag game.

Historically, a meme is a discrete "package of culture" that would travel via word of mouth, usually as a mesmerizing story, a fable/parable, a joke, or an expression of speech. Today, memes travel much faster than simple speech. As internet email forwards, instant messages, and web page links, memes now travel instantly via the Internet.

loool, I think what I said stands true by the amount of confusion on show here. The "modern" (i.e. facebook generation) use the word to describe some silly photo online with big white writing across it. They usually don't last more than a few weeks and there are millions of them so I guess by the dictionary definition they are not really memes

OK, I've seen those. Though I'd never heard them referred to that way before. Then again, I am a grumpy old man, so its not surprising.

Someone got the hump? Sheesh I was polite as can be just in case I had misunderstood something. The title of the thread: "scumbag game" is what I questioned. As to all the obscure talk after i still have no idea whats being conveyed,but who cares.........scumbag game thread keeps staying right up at the top of the forum. Wish i'd never responded............

No offence meant, honest. Just when I saw this post the first time I thought it was going to be a fun one to follow, the posts from all the folks on here just shows the depth of this little community of ours, it was all meant to be taken with a pinch of salt as it were. Everyone gets a bad day sometimes and just posts it (resources anyone?), thought it was great how a tricky post was turned into something that ended up quite light hearted.

Silly images posting as memes besides.

When I read the original post, I was thinking the silly game allowed him to build an AN designed monitoring station with no long range scanner. Which is a pretty useless, and I think they could be available without the scanner tech.

Which makes the game scumbag due to tricking him into building something useless.

You know, you should not be able to build a station that doesn't meet its own minimum equipment requirements. That I agree with.

The complaint could have been delivered with more tact though.

I've requested that my "monitoring stations" be upgraded to the latest model, because as they are now they have no LRS. Which programmer thought it was a good idea to be able to build MOS's before discovering LRS?

The AI should not provide monitoring stations until long range scanners are unlocked. Certain ship types are delayed until some tech/size is available already.

And I agree that the original post could have been somewhat more straight forward...

Going a bit off topic...

Red_Dwarf, what did you think of the new episode of Red Dwarf that aired the other night?

I cannot understand a word you said; does this mean I have an IQ lower than a goldfish?
Am I looking up at a goldfish's shoes or -- in this case -- fins?

Loved series 1 to 6, didn't like 7 or 8 as much and so never saw the back to Earth stuff after all its bad reviews etc.

But... I did enjoy the series 10 episode, it was much better than I expected. More akin to series 3 thru 6 than 7 or 8 thankfully. Also, I like the way they didn't modernize the set too much and make it look all high tech, with the exception of the screens it was all similar to the 80s/90s style

I can't get used to Kryten with the wrinkly eyes, heh, Androids don't age!

Cassandra was the only good episode of series 7/8. The rest were pretty bad. Series 1 & 2 were my favourites. Back to Earth just didn't feel right. This new episode did feel right!

I didn't really notice the wrinkles, but I noticed Kryten put on a few pounds! And Rimmer's hair! Lister and the Cat are the ones that seemed to age the least, and they're the living characters!

I enjoyed it. I didn't think it was quite as funny as the old ones, but it was really well done. Like you I was really pleased with the sets and the overall style. It was always about the interactions between the crew and it felt like they were going back to the old days with this.

I'm looking forward to more.
