Selling landers for RU
« on: July 15, 2003, 08:27:36 pm »

I was wondering if someone could tell me if the cheat or hack\bug for selling off the lander works? I tried selling them off, waited went back up and did not find any new Landers. Am I doing something wrong? could anyone please tell me how its suppose to work. The instructions say to sell them all off, then select the sell option again. I don't see a "sell" option. I just select the spot ware the Lander would be and deselect it. Any suggestions? and thank you.

That was most likly on the PC version.  Even if there was something like that in UQM it would be fixed pretty quickly.

The lander cheat is actually a bug in the original PC floppy version of SC2. It was fixed in later releases of the PC version (such as the CD version) and in the 3DO version on which UQM is based.

Using the lander cheat is quite simple: try to sell a lander when you don't have any landers to sell. SC2 doesn't check whether you have any landers, decrements the amount of landers past zero, causing the counter to wrap around to its maximum value. You can then sell these insane amounts of landers and get lots of money.
