Some of these remind me of MOO3, especially newbutton1 and 9. Not that that's a bad thing. I'll play around with them as soon as I get a chance. Thanks for making them.

Well the semi quasi somewhat standard thing is to have a a small number of discreet grades, Very Poor to Poor to Average to Rich to Very Rich, occasionally with Ultra Poor and Ultra Rich or something... I don't know if FO is doing the same but it's a fair guess for those willing to listen to a talki...

Gonna have to go with a solid "Hmm" on this. I'd say tone down the percussion a fair bit (less volume, maybe more variety, or possibly do something else entirely with the space), try reducing the tempo of the whole thing a little, and it might make a good racial map track... But yeah we're always ha...

Right, so I guess there's a good reason why "tentative approval" is called tentative. ;) Sorry for taking so long to get around to this, but basically a final decision has been reached and that is that everything is going to have to use the same license, that being BY-SA. If nothing else there are p...

Pfft, 3D is soooo 5-years-ago. 4D is where it's at now. *nods*

Happened in my MOO3 multiplayer games all the time. Wouldn't exactly call it rare, heh.

So uhh, I guess no one else thinks it'd look better if the gray O was continuous under the red cross eh? (Sorry, had to ask. ;)

He's posted enough that i'm confident that's not his strength. ... Ouch. Heh. I don't mean to get in the way here Zach so I'm just gonna say this then disappear again... I sympathize with Eleazar. I really do. There are plenty of times (with FO and everywhere else in life) when I have to bite my to...

I'm all for diplomacy anthems -- Civ4 does that wonderfully, and even has multiple different ones for each race depending on what era that race is currently in -- but they're necessarily much shorter than tracks for other categories (30sec - 1min), and at their core are basically an optional element...

Mongoose has a ton of tracks completed Some of them are better than others. ;) @eleazar: The only guaranteed places for different things to be playing at the moment are 1) game title screen, 2) galaxy map, and 3) combat. The first can't really be race-specific, since you haven't chosen a race yet a...

It is interesting how the show moves through such paradym shifts, eg end season 2 where they settle on a planet and then the cylons capture them. Overall, I just want to get to Earth and see what happens. Perhaps earth will be really powerful and waste the cylons (we don't know what earth year the ...

Regardless of my preference, i don't think the lines & icons are used consistently. What about "Monotheism"? As i read it this tech requires "Masonry", and for the second prerequisite you have the choice of "Polytheism" or "nothing"? Or "Horseback riding" has only one "Or" connection? No. Monotheis...
