    Command & Conquer Remastered Collection Announced (March 10, 2020)

    Oh I haven't even noticed that one with the coffee mug. Well I will see how well it works out soonish. I hope the work paid of in the end. I mean even with some errors I think it would still be better with the upscaleing then haveing the old videos on todays highres screens. I mean either it...

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    I like what I see. Very well done. When the WCP model rework is done and the videos too I think its time to pay WCP a visit again ^_^

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    That looks very nice. I like how well the fine details like hair have improved as well as the lightning and color seams to be a tiny bit more natural. Espacialy skin tones seam better in some scenes. Also small writing is clearer. Overall I like it and I would like to see Prophecy getting the...

    Defiance's Eyecandy Thread

    IIRC the Wildcat even predates WC1 and was used during the Pilgrim war? Not quite sure but pretty certain its an quite old fighter that was mentioned in the novels or TV series but never shown.

    I think the general idea was that Section 31 was kinda like our todays secret service. We know they exist and we have a rough understanding of what they do but details...well that is mostly not made public until years or even decades later, for good reasons. So I think they wanted to go with...

    Pice actualy feelt like a Starfleet captain to me in Discovery. Sadly the story was still...strange. While not so Starfleet like Lorka was actualy an interesting captain. The backstory of scientist and explorer becomming a wartime captain that has changed was interesting but then they made him...

    WC Standoff, Secret Ops and Darkest Dawn Movies?

    I think I agree with Vidmaster. When your friend is completly against the genre you will most likely never convince him. At best I would say get together and you play the game and he can watch you play. Pick a mission you realy like or a cutscene, show him how much fun you have and if he still...

    I wouldn't call it heated, do you think its heated? Anyway finale has been aired and frankly...what a weak finale. When you build up drama you need a good payoff or it falls flat. So spoilers ahead. In the end Picard left me with a mixed bag of emotions. On the one hand I like Picard and...

    Picard not haveing a lead role is part of how the universe sees him. An old relic of another time. His push against Starfleets will, to support the Romulans anyway and using his contacts in Starfleet to support his agenda and failing further increased that point of view. The people of that time...

    I think we could see the start of a downward spiral for Starfleet with, in no order, First Contact and the direct attack of the Borg on Earth, the Cardassian - Federation conflict and the formation of the Marque inside Starfleet, the Dominion War that lead to a strong militarisation of...

    You mean better upscaleing for the videos? In some cases it looks strange dosn't it?

    Dune 2 was awesome and I realy liked it. Ok I am a big Dune fan that might also be a reason for that. I think it was my first RTS game. @Quarto if you want to show the game today, there are free webbrowser ports that you could show and play. Just googleing it I found this one for example...

    Command & Conquer Remastered Collection Announced (March 10, 2020)

    The nostalgia with this games is so high, remembering those fun LAN parties where one of the C&C games would definitly be part of the night/weekend. One part of me is "OMG I need this" while the other goes "Remeber the other times you played other older games again and you stop playing after a...

    Interesting, autofollow was the thing I "turned off" because I don't want to let the game play the game but me. I guess that I am one of the few that also dissable nearly all kinds of automation on my PC and other devices because I don't want the devices to control me or what and when I have to...

    When they put Burnham on trail for what she did I went "Yes get her out of the way." Also I still vote for Saru to become Captain of the Discovery. There where a few times where he had to take command and I think he did well.

    Indeed its interesting and it will be interesting to see if they take anything from it over into the show. So far there was an Odyssey class and a Feaht class Warbird from STO in the Countdown comics that tell a bit of what happend before the show. As far as I understand it she was discharged...

    @ChrisReid On the topic of money. I am looking forward and hope there will be bit more informations and with that world building. My guess is that the "no money" part is more or less centered around Starfleet personal. That Starfleet is covering their bills, except you want to deal with some...

    So far there has been one point that made go a little bit of "What the..." and that is money? Wasn't it so that money, except you want to trade outside of federation space, is pretty much not an issue anymore? That everyone could have its basic needs of shelter and food covered without much...

    My thoughts Discovery Allways felt like it would work very well if it was post Nemisis instead of pre Kirk. The Spore drive could have been so easly explaind as part of a Federation program to search for new ways of traveling around. I mean Voyager allready laied the groundwork for that...
