I found this clip from the movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4SMk2UQhU-M

Ha!  I had not thought of that comparison.  I love that movie, by the way.  My wife and I went a couple of weeks ago, really having no expectations that it would be good but going on the recommendations of... everybody and all the critics.  Wow, this was just awesome.  It reminded us both of Galaxy Quest in some ways.  Really excellent movie.

Oh yeah, of course.  This is just an absolutely barebones thing.  The sound effects and so forth were just quickly put together by me.  Pablo hasn't even started on the soundtrack for SE yet, he's still working on the TLF expansion soundtrack (which is coming along amazingly, I might add).

Yeah, the first version is a bit more space-suit-sounding in a lot of ways, but just gets a bit too muddy depending on your speakers, I think.  Depending on the speakers, the first one is VERY much more muddy, or else not much of a difference.  Funny how that works, but Pablo and I run into that with him mixing music, too.  Can be pretty frustrating for the audio editor, to be sure.

No comment. ;)

Teal_Blue:
Ooops, I take that back.  :)  :(  or something like that.  What is the line from Wizard of Oz, 'Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.'  :) 

On another note, I know you don't want to just re-create another game, but any 'Alpha Centauri' comparisons, or diversions?
Perhaps a bit too early to ask, but I have played AC but keep losing, haha, I really have to find a game I can win one of these days.  :)

Hearteater:
For some reason after reading about Spectral Empire I feel the urge to recommend Sentenced to Prism by Alan Dean Foster. Not that I think the two things have all that much in common. Just that I think you might really enjoy the book.

Draco18s:
I like the second version better.  It doesn't have any weird pops where the waveform sounds clipped.

(And to be honest, unless you're trying to make a personality like Max Headroom or his villainous, female counterpart, SHODAN, that kind of thing needs to be avoided)
