  1. That plugin is just an interface for an IRC client. Not really the optimal experience for a game with lots of different interactions between players.
  2. There's a lot about black holes that is still theoretical, for obvious reasons.
  3. I know it's an obscure site, but you could try SpaceQuest.Net.
  4. Early this coming week, per the FB update.
  5. The SQ1 EGA is the classic. SQ1 VGA may have the resolution but I still like the EGA design (Sarien ship, etc) better.
  6. That's right. If you have a Google+ or Gmail account check out Hangouts.
  7. It's a big universe - there can be both a galaxy and a planet with the same name.
  8. It's probably just programmed to show up in those particular circumstances, no fancy physics detection or anything.
  9. Cool finds. The truck in space theme has come up before, namely SQ5's documentation. The buildings don't look that close, IMO, but that Rooter/Robo-pup is probably the closest in design, I think.
  10. It probably would make less sense with her maiden name.
  11. Don't know if you've seen it, but the Archives covers it pretty well.
  12. Sorry to hear about your life troubles. In my experience with game development it seems largely to be a challenge of mainly perseverance combined with just a smidge of ability. If you push through you should be able to complete it, it's just a matter of when. Hopefully you will someday be able to finish your vision of the game. I look forward to seeing it get released eventually. Thanks for the update.
  13. Fun fact, just yesterday Scott was telling me that they were trying to get Robin Williams to play Roger in SQ4 and that Robin had wanted to, being an avid fan of video games, but that he had a prior commitment to do Hook, and so was unable to do SQ4.
  14. Hopefully. Now that the systems are settling down it should go faster.
  15. Ah, those were the good old days, in the brief time after the launch of VSB and before the Two Guys Kickstarter. Too bad random political thing had to happen.
  16. I can't speak to whether it'll be released as episodic or not, but Chris was definitely referring to the entirety of SpaceVenture being basically 1/3 finished. The main thing we're hitting in the first third is bugs, right now. They are my bane.
  17. That site uses the Gravatar service based on the e-mail address associated with your account.
  18. I believe some examples of this were shown in the latest Kickstarter update. As Chris mentioned, much of the development concern has been with appropriate use of screen real-estate. With the inventory UI and the more traditional Sierra-like interface,what I referred to (at the time) in code as the "top UI" (with the walk, hand, eye, etc, icons) taking up about 1/3 of the screen when put together, that greatly restricts the click events and interactions you can put in those areas. So we are also looking at other ways to present the UI. The inventory interface Chris demoed in the update is one i
