« on: February 09, 2004, 06:08:49 am »

... attack the Thraddash? Is it just another way of getting the aqua helix?

Spoiler

You need to get the Illwrath to move in order to get/make the Chmmr

Well, if the first time you get to Procyon is when you free them , you don't need to send the ilwrath anywhere.  Another reason to send the Ilwrath is it's fun.

Just as a side note - Jinksy, you might want to get a account with the amount that you're posting in this forum. (just a suggestion though)

Dunno; I've never had that problem until the second time I visit the planet.  They always tell me "Surprise! We noticed your interest in this planet...set a trap...blah blah blah".  This is PC-SC2 info though, so it might be one of the subtle differences between PC & 3DO.

I've been about half-and-half on that. Sometimes I go to Procyon without sending the Ilwrath away and there's an ambush, sometimes not.

Another reason.

Beside getting the Ilwrath out of the way, there is an out-of-game view to take here, I think. The Ilwrath are one of the few races that still threaten Earth and humanity in general. I mean, distance-wise, the Ilwrath on on Earth's door step. By destroying the spidies, the only remaining threats to Earth are the Quan and the enemy-next-door, VUX.

Strategic wise yes, but you have to remember, once you free the chmmr even the illwrath are not a threat. Besides a myon can make it across the map in less than a month, so it is not that strategic.

I think you may be right. I remember once when I was playing the game( my first or second time through actually), that I freed the chmmr without talking to the Ilwrath. I've been trying to do it again, but it looked like there was no way. Someone with the original game installed should play through and try to confirm this.

In UQM 0.3 you have to remove the illwrath to free the Chmmr. The original version that I played did not require that.

Maybe this was an undocumented (on these forums at least) bug that got fixed.  That may have been the original intent of SC2...
