Thread: How to recruit more gang members when I have 0 members?

How do I do that?

Use the recruit command.

If you happened to be on the losing side of a war and have no blocks left (or have 0 Residential) you won't be able to recruit.

so how do I recruit?i forgot to add the fact that I lost all my residential blocks.......

Then you lost the game my friend.
Post by: mob(23502)
2005-04-14 23:44:22
Yup, lost the game. Some players - probably the good ones - will take all of your RES blocks (so you can't recruit) but leave the COM and FPL alone so that they stockpile. If this has happened to you, consider yourself someone's personal bank account and/or grocery store. ;-)

Its a little fish you pop in side your ear. Translates stuff so you can understand it when the other person is talking a different language.

Very handy.

To be or not to be. That is the question.

It's nice to see that we have some Hitchhiker fans outside of the UK considering none of my English friends have any clue about it, they shame britan!
Post by: Raving Druids(21385)
2005-04-19 07:20:03
No...the question is "What is seven times six" ;-))

And not all of us are outide the UK...These people are still friends?
Post by: Kray(52284)
2005-04-19 08:49:02
I wasn't saying that all the people that made those comments were out of Britan, but people like Peter who are clearly out of the UK know of it, that's all I was stating. I do hope that they don't ruin the movie! From what I heard of Marvin they haven't got the proper emphasis on his voice, he sounded perfect in the original... So depressing!


Also he appears to have a kind of Stooie (From Family Guy) stature in the movie which gives him a more child like motion and also takes away from his depression, but then that may just be me and my over analysis on his appearance, most of the other clips I've seen look good with maybe the exception of Beeblebrox but after the movie I will probably like the changes to him.

the movie was very disapointing - none of the characters hit spot on - the tv series was much better (alan rickman as marvin had some good dialogue but it just wasnt depresed enough)
Post by: Kray(52284)
2005-05-04 07:49:49
If I met you in real life I would have to hug you(Well maybe not hug, just shake your hand)!! You are the first person who has actually said something I agree entirely on. None of my friends or family agreed with me when I said that Alan Rickman pulled a poor show of Marvin, the one from the TV series could have depressed even the most optomistic of people whereas Rickman could barely portray a depressing character for one hour! I was totally disappointed with the movie, it's feminist agenda(Deep Thought as a woman although I have been told that in the book it was that way which I am not happy about!), the love story and the fact they ignored the book by only referring to it afew times rather than throughout(I mean the book as in the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy IN the film not the book that it wwas based on, just to avoid confusion) and also the way they never truely explored the question to everything. Then there was the fact they called the restaurant at the end of the universe the restaurant at the edge of the universe.

It was probably because I held the TV series in such high regard that I didn't enjoy the film as much, well anyway that was my rant on it.

It was a travesty. DA is gonna be spinning in his grave. The Volgons were left over from the last series of Fraggle Rock...Trillian was ugly....Ford was - well - was he even in it?...Slarty was poorly acted...the sub plot with the guy with the CGI eyes was pointless and went no where...The voice of the Book was dull and uninspiring (total missed opportunity, the book effects were worse than the TV series from 20 years ago! and none of the excerpts were up dated)...Zaphod was over acted and the head was a cop out...Marvin was appaling, lifeless...

I'll skip the hug please. ;-)

I was planning on going to see the movie as part of my b-day celebrations (gonna be 35 on the 6th! Woohoo?). I haven't seen the TV series, and its been a couple decades since I've read the book, so maybe... possibly... I won't be disappointed. It's that or XXX starring Ice Cube.

Or, I could just buy a case of beer and a dime-bag. Apparantly it could be a better waste of money!! ;-)
Post by: Kray(52284)
2005-05-04 08:49:44
Well I have to say I thought that Trillian looked quite nice(Alot nicer than the TV series) but yeah the eye guy did go nowhere, they didn't even conclude the story they built with him. Unless they plan to make a sequel like they did the TV series finishing the rest of the story(I hope they don't as I would rather remember the rest as it was in the past) Also I hated they bit about the Babel Fish, they removed the oportunity of humour basing it on God's non existance, I know the world is alot more policitally correct and that could be deemed offensive by alot of people but it was that sort of thing that made the original. And the singing Dolphins, don't even get me started on them!

You sure you don't want a hug? :)

I'd take it over XXX2, there not some paint you can watch dry somewhere?

Positive, Kray. Pos-it-ive.

Kray - i have to aggree i though Trilian was quite attactive as well -

Vercetti - avoid XXX2 like the plague - ice cube has the acting skill of a week old dead haddock

Post by: Kray(52284)
2005-05-07 13:17:42
Yeah I always like threads to vear off track, so I'll post my opinion of xXx(You typed it wrong!)

I haven't actually seen it but I think that Ice Cube does not look like any sort of action hero, personally he appears too "Big Boned" to play a role of a secret agent and I can't imagine someone like him pulling off less realistic stunts than Bond or Batman when they have stunts so unrealistic that I am left baffelled that CGI can even do it! I will never watch a movie that appears so stupid.

Hell and I even went to see Britney Spears Crossroads!!
Post by: mob(23502)
2005-05-07 13:34:18
I'm just going to wait until it comes out on the movie channels. Theatres have become ridiculously expensive. Then toss in some commercials. Who the hell wants to pay to watch *BLEEEEEP* commercials? Yeesh.

And Kray... my friend, I can't believe you admitted going to see Britney Spears Crossroads!! Dunno if it's a movie or a concert... regardless, you are a brave brave man! ;-)

It was her movie, Iwas lulled in by the idea of seeing her dancing in her underwear, almost made up for the rest of it but it was still terrible!

2005-05-08 03:02:09
lol! Well at least you went for all the right reasons!


Now that I think of it, all the right reasons happen to be the one and only reason ;-)

ive got a mate who is very good at scamming free tickets for new movies - so i quite often get to see em for free (i refuse to pay 7 quid to get into a movie) - saw hitchikers for free & hero & big fish & dodgeball and loads of others - some good movies to see out there for free if you can find the right sites & magazines. Im hoping for free tickets to return of the sith as well. fingers crossed.

probably the most interesting and least useful thread I've found so far, yay for that. Sometimes a bit of a break is healthy, ok a bit of a break is always healthy :). As far as movie prices go, I'm not sure how everything there is set up as I see the majority of you are in a different hemisphere, but here in the states the majority of theaters do not include bars in them, there are a few, and not only do they typically have awesome leather seating, menu's, and drinks, the best reason to keep an eye out for these is since they make their money off of food and drinks a majority of these CONSTANTLY give out stacks of free tickets that they don't advertise, a bit of snooping, a dash of effort, and a few repeat trips to get extra free entries can afford one nice movie experience. Oh and selling those extras to random associates who haven't noticed you can get them handed to them at the cinema is a great way for booze money. I can thank slow suburbanite LARPers for seeing Last Samurai with 10 top shelf vodka martini's and an exquisite spinach-artichoke dip that cost me nothing.

I finally saw xXx2. What a flippin crappy movie (even with the case of beer and dime-bag). They shoulda put mr. rap-star cum movie-star in the third movie and called it xXx^3. Hah! And it still would have sucked. I understand the whole suspend your disbelief concept but holy crap I can't suspend my whole freakin brain without losing conciousness (I know some of you will disagree). I mean, really. I pity the poor fool who spent cold hard cash on this craptacular piece of crap.
