1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Biodata Questions and General Complaints on: November 04, 2013, 08:45:30 pm
I see from this tool where I can find biodata but without clicking on each star I can't see which planets are best to harvest life from. Biodata density isn't the only factor obviously.

I'm wanting biodata primarily because my landers are worthless across about 90% of the galaxy so I need calm weather worlds and low tectonic worlds. I don't want to just go fetch the rainbow worlds based on the maps online. To me that might as well be hex editing my save.

Frankly it's stupid that I can't ask my allies to inform me of the locations of these worlds, or safe worlds on which to harvest life, in their spheres of influence.

So I'm compromising.

I want to know if there is any kind of life bearing world pattern I can see from the starmap, and if so hopefully some kind of trend for world bearing life that's moderately safe to collect. If not I'm just going to work out some kind of ratio of converting RUs to credit that I feel is fair and do some save edit swapping.

There's a lot that's stupid about this game, and one of those things is apparently the practice of plating the hull of your landers and ships with people instead of armor.

It's funny that in a game that apparently wants me to spend 50 hours collecting metal the species in said game have never heard of using it as armor.

Eeep! Thank you! Downloading now Smiley This is so great. I always hated the time limit.

Awesome! Can you link me to where I can find the "HD" version? Also how do I enable the cheat? (Unless it's just like a menu option. I'm asking in advance to save time.)

Sorry for the double post, just noting that the save editor can be used in a virtualbox OSE guest OS, (winxp sp3) on the ubuntu saves folder and changes work properly.

I'm having trouble understanding the directions found at http://uqm-mods.sourceforge.net/ for installing these (much needed) mods.

Might i request one of three things, either that these mods be included as options within the next version/snapshot, that someone share a successfully modded game folder, or that someone hold me hand through the modding process. I run ubuntu 9.01 64

Thank you for your time. Smiley

(Building in a save editor would be awesome as well. Credits, Time, RUs. Alliances. )
