  1. Brexit: the fallout

    Just catching up on old topics. Most surveys I've seen showed that immigration wasn't the overriding concern of people voting to leave - certainly wasn't a factor in my vote to leave. For me it came down to the fact that the EU is beyond any meaningful reform because there is so much self-interest within the EU bureaucracy to maintain the status quo. Whilst an ever closer union may be preferable and desirable for some countries, it won't work for all 28 which is what we've seen over the last few years, leading to huge levels of unemployment in certain €Z countries. If you think we're making a mess of Brexit, just watch what happens when they try to plug the gap of our contributions. EU is heading for a massive fall unless it can start reforming and allow countries like UK (amongst others) to have looser relationships with it rather than force everyone down the same path. In essence, I support free trade and open borders, not endless bureaucracy, harmonised taxation, and a unified military. Oh and Dante, John Cleese voted for Brexit I believe 😉
  2. On the basis that he is recreating the original novel (I've not seen anything different?), who would be your actors? Is it wrong that I think Kyle Maclachan could play Leto? Jared Leto as Feyd Rautha? Tom Hardy as Duncan Idaho? Idris Elba as Gurney Halleck?
  3. The Old Timers' Notice Board

    Maybe this site will have a renaissance with a new movie on the horizon. I'm trying to pop in at least once a year!

    Apparently I didn't log in last year...shocking!
  5. Expanded Dune 2000 Forums

    That's not saying much though, given the inactivity throughout the forum.
  6. Expanded Dune 2000 Forums

    Yes it does, but I don't think there is enough activity to warrant making changes,
  7. hello

    I take it you are the same Spicy who was banned back in the day? From Egypt I believe? I haven't seen many of the old Emperor players around these days.
  8. A new Dune game

    You say its easy to make, but who actually knows how to make it? This kind of game has been proposed many times in the past (most notably Dune Generations) but no-one has ever actually made one.
  9. Here's an update of who is going where: http://europedecides.eu/2014/06/whos-going-where-tracking-the-musical-chairs-in-the-european-parliament/ It will be interesting to see if Beppe Grillo's M5S joins EFD. Would certainly make the group seem more moderate. ECR is an odd incoherent bunch - some of their MEPs are libertarians/classical liberals such as Dan Hannan, others are right-wing populists like the Danish People's Party, whilst the Finns Party is almost left-wing in many of its beliefs. ECR has just become a vehicle for the Tories to try to deny as much power/funding to UKIP as possible. I am surprised that Germany's Free Voters have joined the liberals.

    Not sure when I'll be available to play online, but should be soon. Where are you living these days?
  11. Mentats of Dune

    Did anyone actually buy this?
  12. You won't get Le Pen and Farage in the same group. Beppe Grillo's Five Star Movement are in talks to join the EFD. Both the Finns Party and the Danish People's Party have left EFD to join ECR and the Swedish Democrats are refusing to deal with Le Pen so I can't see Le Pen forming a group at this rate given that she won't work with Atack, NPD, or Golden Dawn.
  13. How to change burst count of weapons?

    I think the Conflict of the Landsraad mod involved a lot of XBF editing and I'm sure that was one of the things that was changed.
  14. Looks like Germany's AFD are causing a headache for David Cameron as they're trying to join the ECR grouping but Merkel is putting pressure on Cameron to convince the Tories to reject them.

    Life is alright, I've just got internet installed at my new house and have been playing around with modding Emperor a bit after seeing what people have been doing since I last tried modding myself. Definitely up for a few online games again.
