Happy Camper said:You can tell you've been playing privateer too much by the following things:
You start to age by 20 years in about 20 seconds.
You start wearing slippers
Your slippers are replaced with sandals, you get horrible teeth a big long tramp beard and insomnia.
Your eyes go square - which makes focusing on anything other than a computer screen very difficult.
You get a very big hunch - much like the hunchback of notre dame
Playing privateer gets progressivley more painful the longer you play.
You appear to be telepathically connected to your computer.
Your girlfriend leaves you - or if you don't have a girl friend (or boyfriend if you prefer) you become sexually repulsive to everyone.
You become physically joined to your seat and any peripherals you are touching.
Your house falls into disrepair.
You know how to edit csv files (oh dear!)
Humanity has since been conquered by the Kilrathi, Romulens, Klingons, Teddy Bears, Wookies or Daleks.
Humanity has since evloved into a life from made out of energy - much like the Q.
If you have understood all the sci-fi references so far you have obviously been watching a lot of T.V at the same time.
I think that just about covers it.
I think I'll stick to being attracted to human femalesMaster Wooky said:P.S: Wookies never conquer anybody.... perhaps sometimes blonde wooky ladies
I can understand that.. I've had the same Thrustmaster stick since before the original Privateer was released. They might have made it too well, I've never needed to buy another product from themMaster Wooky said:that's all true... by the way, i don't even go to the bathroom without my thrustmaster.

If the wookies had a decent fleet though, they'd probably kick some major ass.
And to add to my list:
You know when you've been playing too much privateer when you've been beta testing PR rather than revising for imminent exams that decide your future.
That would be such an awesome thing. Especially if it worked with arseholes. In the real world the closest thing to an accept button is a fist in the said person's face (not that I advocate that sort of thing).Master Wooky said:Ever tried to click on accept when a friend won't stop talking?
You get the cops on your tail? You need to think about sticking to the speed limit.TurboTim07 said:When you keep trying to hit 3 to get better relations with the cops on your tail.

You know you've been playing too much privateer when you get bored of it and play something else instead.
