Universal Combat Expansion

This press release announces plans for Universal Combat: Hold the Line (thanks Frans), a Universal Combat expansion, while simultaneously, somewhat confusingly, heralding the end of the short-lived UC series (which was planned as the new Battlecruiser franchise), saying the previously announced UC: Edge to Edge is now a working title, and that the game's official title will be unveiled later this year. Meanwhile, here's the announcement of Hold the Line, planned for release this holiday season:

We have no immediate plans to develop another stand alone Battlecruiser title in the short term. As such, today we are announcing the above currently in progress addition to the Universal Combat franchise. Our aim with UCHTL is to improve on various critical aspects of the previous title in order to provide an even more advanced and fun title based on lessons learned from the previous offering.

Probably the last of its kind in the Battlecruiser series as we have come to know it, we are making UCHTL the all-encompassing game with as much advancements and fun filled gameplay in first person planet-side careers as is currently seen in the space borne careers. An extensive FAQ which will be frequently updated to reflect inbound questions, is located at www.3000ad.com/products/uchtlfaq.html .

Just browsed to your page and got a kick out of the "Generic Names for Soft Drinks" chart. I can confirm that in Tulsa county, it is indeed "Pop" and not "Soda" or "Coke"...

I'm a little surprised more of Derek's toadies haven't stopped by...

They are too busy kissing ass and getting theirs handed to them.

I love browsing the forums there. It's like an S&M parlor.

    Well not knowing what a Mobile Forward Base is, it's hard to tell how ridiculous what this guy is trying to do.

    Course, that shouldnt matter - as trying to figure out what people might try to do is part of any good game design and that's a pretty craptastic response to a player.

    Of all the things you can do in the game, you find time to fool around with stupid crap like this? Seriously?

    I rest my case.

    This is how the great Derek Smart makes sure you can get total immersion in his games:

    darn,

    I'm having trouble just damaging the enemy marines by hitting them with the Mobile Forward Base (MFB). I've tried it on 10 different enemy marines, at speeds from 5 to 25. On one occasion I saw the guy's TTD armor indicator go from 100 to 70. The rest of the time the enemy marine either passed through the graphic of the mobile forward base or grabbed onto the top, side or bottom! (Which was a big surprise when I got out and tried to find the annoying red dot that kept following me every where).
    So my question now is: should I be having this much trouble damaging enemy marines with a MFB?

    At the very least, I'm glad that none of you abject wankers can play my games; because then, this is the kind of crap I'd have to put up with.

    No Derek, this isn't what you'd 'have to put up with'. You'd do the same thing you always do. Insult people for being stupid, have them thank you for pointing that out and then ban them from your message boards. Better yet, have DC drop an entire board because people were complaining that UC sucks.

    And it's not like I'm saying the UC sucks without actually playing it. I tried the demo. You've got some really neat ideas, but they are poorly implemented. Outside of that, basic functionality that is in freeware games is missing from UC; the most obvious being collision detection. But now I digress.

    The lesson here, Derek, is you reap what you sow.

    I'm sorry you're too immature to realize that.

    Where is Mr. Dr. Smarts PhD from? Botswana or Namibia. I hear University of Botswana has a great Computer Science Department.

    Derek Smart walks up to a Coke Machine and puts in a coin. Out pops a Coke. Derek looks amazed and runs away to get some more coins. He returns and starts feeding the machine madly and of course the machine keeps feeding out drinks.
    Hellbinder walks up behind Derek and watches his antics for a few minutes before stopping him and asking if someone else could have a go. Derek spins around and shouts in his face, "CAN'T YOU SEE I'M WINNING?!"

    I spent a few moments browsing his forums recently. I guess I wanted to see if the post mentioned here was unique or if he was consistently an ass.

    Turns out he's an ass - through and through.

    ...an open-ended space sim where you can pretty much do as you please.

    well...except post anything that he doesn't agree with. (Support seems to fall into this category)

    I believe the primary attribute missing in both Derek Smart and my old co-worker was this...a sense of perspective.

    True...a hard kick in the ass wouldn't hurt either.

    For all the grief that posters give the developers here - I have never seen one person more deserving. The guy needs to seriously hire some PUBLIC RELATIONS people to handle the CUSTOMERS that he can't without belittling or insulting.

    Once again - DSMART - G.F.Y.

    Thanks

    For the love of pete, Derek, you can't design games. You suck. Find another profession where you can take your phony PhD. Give it a rest already.

    leave me out of this
