Time Discrepancy

The time on my computer clock (accurately synchronised) is 12 hours ahead of the time displayed on the site when I refresh it, yet the time is noted to be GMT, which is 10 hours behind my time (I live in Canberra, therefore setting my clock to AUS EST, GMT+10:00, also known as "(GMT+10:00) Canberra,...

That doesn't happen. In the demo mission, I completely go the wrong way, smash into the starbase head on, and fire two plectrons into the starbase, while I am touching it. I do not get hurt. I think that the missiles burrow into the armour, where they burst to cause maximum armour damage. This is al...

Let me rephrase this:
A: Which race or races do you least like fighting against?
B: Which race or races are the best as the player when the player has more than one squadron (eg. Planet Strike, Sector Base, War)?

It is possible to have: A: FoW tiles, so that you can cover over the board when you are starting, only leaving the immediate city terrain visible. B: Terrain tiles, so that you only have terrain in places where you can see. After that, you go into the unknown, placing terrain by some sort of system,...

On a more 'serious' note. The repair bot repairs civilians. Is that a bug or in the future are we all robots? :) Ooops! I'll fix that in the next release. I don't understand the problem here, just the funny implications. The CC is something like the cockpit, correct. Therefore, repairs to that are ...

Is this a question of fastest won game (certain victory), or one of gambit. The closest analogy I can think of is chess, in which some openings are more... bizarre than others, worse in some cases, but quicker and better against some opponents, most obviously BTB players who always do the Std. openi...

I think that the game is only coincidentally a ripoff of star trek, as the race persecuted was the Zions, which is related to Zionist, which is like saying Americanist or Briticist, though less obvious. Zion (Proper noun, also Sion)* is a hill in Jerusalem, which is supposedly the site of a palace f...

Good idea. I actually thought it would be a good idea for non-campaign missions. For example, in Descent Freespace, you have a standard campaign, and you have three hardcoded missions available in the simulator: Shivan Gauntlet, where you fight Shivans, which you only see in hardcoded campaign in th...

That is not a problem if the two squads have, for example, race choices of R&M and S&Z, only using the first letters of the name. If all races get the same number of these squads available to them, then it is even.

This is an interesting suggestion, and I would be very interested in the honour roll career details, but I think that it could be extended to combat vessels: The AM-256K Nightmare Built by White Wolf Shipyards from 4088 ME, the AM-256 is an extremely capable interceptor. Then it would note down whic...

I think that the Raiders (Heathan through Warrior), though good ships, are not the ones that suit my style. I would in the full version use the Zyan and Rycurn Fear through Nightmare models, albeit with upgraded rear engines and some of the Daycorns replaced with Oriks and more Dragons. This means t...

I am not suggesting that the red dots should not be used, but that the red colour should not be forced, in the same way that you are forced to play as the green player in the demo. I was suggesting that either the colour should not be red or that the colour should be red as default but changeable. P...

The continent value is not racist, as this takes it directly fro the one for 'Risk', the boardgame on which the map, and in fact the combat system is based. risk had seven european countries: W.
