for those interested in wireless electricity: i did some web research and came up with the following links: MIT researchers found a way how to wirelessly charge with only weak interaction with the surrounding objects with this technology, charging a mobile phone wirelessly should be possible in the ...

The main problem with mods as I see it is that most of them can never reach the level of original game :( the work of the fans is really great but as I've said, your atitude and expectations towards mods are too good. 10 mins of fun- that's what you can expect from a good mod- not more. i have a di...

No. Why? One word: Ubuntu. Jelco look, ubuntu may be the easiest installable linux distribution. that by far doesn't make it as easy as a mac though. buy it, open the box and it's all there, including all the most important software. chances are you don't have to reinstall it even once. i don't say...

i would like to compare game- sequals to film- sequals: good films are almost always completely story- driven. making a sequal based on a film, that wasn't originally planned to have sequals rarely goes well. the only example that pops into my head right now is the terminator franchise. in compariso...

@xander: if you feel offended now, that honestly wasn't my intention. secondly i don't believe either, that complaining will change anything. i just wanted to give some idea, how it could have been. i actually find the lemming- like behaviour ok gameplay-wise. it just doesn't quite fit their story -...

I'm aware, that this topic is kindof old but anyway. xander, i know that you're defending every single design decision of IV and i'm fine with it. and while i do like the way you can set waypoints in darwinia, i also think, that the behaviour of the darwinians isn't quite how it should be, if you th...

i'm really amazed about how passionate you guys get about your darwinians. i kindof fail to feel that empathy for anything digital. maybe because i have played too many RTS and have lead too many digital fellows to their death? ^_^

How would that allow me to play on Linux? I assume it wouldn't since Linux doesn't use executables quite like Windows does. So I would assume if I bought it direct from Introversion then I would get both Linux and Windows versions? i guess WINE could do the trick? if the PC is not too aged, playabl...
