Re: Welcome to UnNatural 6

Tanascius wrote something similar for one of Thomas' Klebes games (for Phost as well, though), I'd guess it's not too hard to implement.

Re: Rebel Vs privs

I had 2 x Rush both with 1000+fuel 100+ fighters mission towing Id #45 and one towing #53 both towing Rushes had PE=Privs. Privs managed to tow a Rush even though their mission was towing the IDs mentione above.

Ha, quick test: Super Deep with 500 kts of cargo, and with 2600 kts, 1 ly distance: 0 kts vs. 2 kts

Re: Rebel Vs privs

He's towing you, and then running out of fuel to avoid combat. What you can do (but possibly a bit difficult because of rounding): Alternate between very high and very low mass, so that he either can't tow you all the way to the waiting wolfpack, or that he at least loses the tower there, because he...

Re: Some VGA Planets questions...

you need the 32 bit port of Winplan from Hauke Stenzel for Win7 and 64 bit. It has some minor glitches, but it is usable. you would not get a mineral dump explosion, that only happens for tampered files, of for two players using the same reg code in the same game. You'd have a shareware version of p...
