Well Scott the problem I find is if you do the sex thing the game locks up(can't handle the heat I guess?).  Which from the sounds of your post is necessary to be able to make Penetrator ships.  Guess it is a bug  :-/

This probably belongs in the bug forum but when Talana shows her gratitude for you does it stop the game for anyone else?  The screen just sits there with the music playing and you are unable to do anything aside from closing the game.  Sure the sex must be great and all but isn't there a universe to save?  Roll Eyes  Is the only way to continue on with the game avoiding getting intimate with her cause if so I feel sorry for my poor Captain  Grin  Well not a whole lot really since he gets all the fun heh
3  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Mycon troubles on: January 05, 2003, 08:27:52 pm
I seem to find myself in quite a predicament.  I headed to the Mycon homeworld Epsilon Scorpii to get the necessary information for Talana.  Unfortunately after talking with the Mycon on their homeworld I end up in combat with them.  There seems to be a neverending number of their ships and I can't hold out. Is this supposed to happen?  I just wanted to talk not fight  Lips Sealed

Cheers fellows I managed to gather enough resources to make the fateful trip to Delta Tauri and rake in the resources.  I have a few questions though I hope you vets could answer.  

1)  What is the best way to equip your main ship?  I've maxed out on thrusters and turning jets.  Also I have 6 storage units, 2 crew quarters and 2 fuel tanks. Is there anything else I should put in it?

2) About the Melnorme technology. Do you have to buy the previous tech in order to get the next?  If so I've got the better guns, land speeder upgrade and point def.  Are they worth it?  I wish I could have gotten something to make the lander immune to natural disasters if there is even such an upgrade

Alright I've been playing SC2 for the past few days and I'm starting to get frustrated to the point where it is no longer fun. I missed out of the SC2 craze back in the day not having a computer and all and was overjoyed to hear it was being redone to work on our modern PC's.  Thank you to the ppl who have worked hard on making one persons dream come true   Smiley  Now I get to experience firsthand what most of you did back then save I basically know how it turns out. But want to experience first hand much of what the game has to offer plotwise (loved meeting Fwiffo on pluto btw who knew they could be so hilarious?)  Grin

Anyways I'm having a hard time with the early game and followed some of the advice given on this forum.  Unfortunately I don't enjoy looking for minerals or biolife as my crew keeps getting zapped, scorched or shaken to death which in turn leads to alot of reloading and eventual boredom  :-/

I very much want to experience what the game has to offer plotwise and combatwise but damn this resource gathering!  It was fun exploring the nearby solarsytems the first few times but other then the dangerous Alpha Centuri system(source of much zapping, scorching, shaking and frustration  Angry). I can't seem to get enough minerals and it gets repetitive trying to find enough to outfit my ship for longer space exploration when I'm spending so many RU's on fuel looking for more.

Does anyone know any nearby systems where you can gather enough resources with a minimum effort(less hazardous to the crew then the Alpha Centuri system at least) so you can get on with the storyline?  I've found the one Tauri system which is loaded with the best type of mineral found but to get there takes a hell of alot of fuel (like 30 or so).  So I need some kind of jumpstart in minerals to be able to reach that area of the universe.  Any help or clues is highly appreciated
