Exploring the Galaxy
« on: May 28, 2004, 09:51:57 am »

Anyone here ever taken on the task of exploring EVERY planet in the game?

Been considering it, heh. I'm at least going to start keeping track of the systems I clean out so that I don't revisit them (unless they have exotic planets or lifeform planets -- I think those restock over time, but I'm not too sure).

I'm not sure there's enough time in the game for that. Anyway, most of us have probably hit at least half of the systems many times over. I should point out that the planets in Ur-Quan space might as well all be made out of jello since no one ever goes near them.

I remember that once I got my cruiser built up, I was able to dominate the Kor-ah and Ur-Quan.

Yes, and most did the same with Fwiffo. Just the same, Ur-Quan space is largely ignored.

When I played the game as a child, my buddy and I went to damn near every star and marked on the large paper map what resources, biological, and artifacts there were.  It took forever and the map was probably thrown away by one of our parents.  Damn.  What a waste.

I came close the second time I played the game. ... The first
time I didn't get much done before running out of time. The second time,
I got lots of thrusters and went looking for...well, everything. The Syreen
ships, the VUX pet, everything. I probably covered 80% of the star
systems. I'd fly into a system, scan the planets and get out as quickly
as possible. Though I didn't bother mapping them. I went by
area of influence. So one day I'd cover the Ugma space, another I'd do
the Thraddish...took three days for Ur-Quan space. It was mostly a waste of
time, but I finally found all the things I was looking for.

And what date did you finish the game in? 2159 December 29? Wink

Or just seconds before your starbase was destroyed?  Wink

Yes and no.  I've been to every system with a white star in it, and due to some other folks that made a database out of the star values, I filled out a list of exotics worlds.

If you look around for the SC2 strategy guide you'll find out a list of "rich systems for minerals and bio".

Admittedly, after a while I kept saved games. If I didn't find something after a few months (game time) I'd simply re-load the game. If I did find something, I'd take note of the place and roll-back time and go get it. But the Korh-Ah did start moving before I completed the game the second time.

Well, I have, as a matter of fact. And in one Sc2 game too. It takes about 4 years or so to do it(as far as I can remember) and it is boring. Especially the Ur-quan sphere - I dreamt the battles Jugger - Marauger and Jugger - Dreadnought for months on end...

i am just exploring galaxy and i have put up starsystems, stars' coordinates, color of star, size of star (allready done!), life, artifacts, richesness, melnorme's trade ships,rainbow-worlds and other unusual things (about 30-40% by now)
also it includes info about artifacts (where/how can be optained, how and where is used and what it does anyway), all about Melnorme shop's (tecnology and information) Quassispace-hyperspace gates openings (in both coordinates and image), information about all species (their homeworlds coordinates both living or destroyed species, frendly or foe and short looking to their history)

all in exel-file... you know guys... this is just... too... much... for... me... i wonder if i never complete this work... is this really worth of it?

People have been doing this for more than 10 years (I had a friend who did the same thing for 2-3 years before he gave up).  Now that the source is available, it's easier to just generate the data.

That's Sage's database isn't it? everyone misses the 5 units of exotics on Pluto.
