That is all I mean by this.

This is something I was completely unaware of.

What versions had a Ferrengi Over Lord, and what did he do?

Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible.
Instead… only try to realize there is no spoon.

Thanks for the PM , To answer your question ...

In the original Ferrengi scenario (doors bbs version 3.09)

You could on occasion see the OverLord come into your sector and turn your fighters.
You might launch a wave of fighters or launch a photon at him/her from your
ISS , but you would be surprised by the power of this OverLord
because those fighters would be repelled and your photon would bounce back
at you.

It took me 3 yrs. of play to learn the secrits of the Ferrengi.
My team mates and I tried everything
(Swamp Rat , Robber Baron & Woodnymph)

We finally got one , it took us all to do it too.
The bad news is the ship did not have the same powers with us using it.
But did pod to another Scorpion , which in later games we sold to other
players at the time for 10 million credits each.
At that time , it would take you about a week or 2 to make that kind of cash.

Oh the good old days :lol:

Bwa-hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! Ruthless! And of course you dropped a limpet and later reclaimed it and the rest of their planets, right? LOLOLOLOLOL!

Anyway, why does Ferrengi Overlord require Internal Aliens? Most of what you described can be accomplished with Gold, right? A race that generates a single alien driving a Scorpion, etc.

Except for the "turning of your figs," of course. I think I remember features like that on a few of the door add-ons!? I even think the Borg would steal the money right off your planet and completely ignore your sector and planetary defenses!?!?!

Yuk! This is why I don't like Gold Aliens! If they can't be defeated or even just follow the player rules, then there's no point in adding them to the game! Lol!

I don't believe TWGS can create a Ferrengi Overlord, it has special attributes I don't think we can recreate with Gold Aliens.

I don't know if Gary created him first in doors, or if Jeff was the first to make him in the HVS MBBS version.
