Probably my last topic...
« on: June 25, 2004, 08:05:21 am »

just finished the game, the sa-matra is very annoying cause for 3 times i destroyed the shields then the still alive shots burned me to hell. i did wanna mention you missed some species in the ending credits, specifacally the umgah, the slylandro, the chmmr and the mycon.
there might be more but none come to mind right now

That not everyone made it into the humorous credits is just how FF and PR3 did it in the beginning.

For zapping the live shots I recommend the Chmmr or Thraddash.

I used the jugger. They make short work of any fireballs.

The yahat are excellent at killing the red globes and fireballs  - just bounce off the green circles and you are going faster than the fireballs.

Pkunk all the way baby! They can outfly the fireballs on their own steam and they shoot from the side too so you can just fly circles around the Sa-Matra whilst firing Smiley

Pkunk are Sa-Matra slayers.  I didn't know you could kill the fireballs, that would have saved me some pain.

I wonder how does the Sa-Matra work.. the fireballs and greeny thingys are only passive defence systems. How would a fully-functional Sa-Matra battle look like? the Chmmr do mention it fried their Broodhomes from outside THEIR weapon range, and that means it's from quite a distance.

A full Sa-Matra battle eh?
Well... your happily cruising through space, minding your own business, everything is quiet, nothing on the scanners.... and all of a sudden, your dead Tongue

Your precursor vessel is kind of like a work-vessel, not really a war machine. So it would be like you being the captain of some freighter or tanker ship, with some guns and missile launchers and stuff strapped to it, and you would take on a Nimitz class carrier Wink

The Chenjesu also mention that the Sa-Matra shot Annihalation Toroids.  My guess is that they're big auto-tracking energy donuts that surround a ship and disinigrate it as the ship passes through.  The fact that they use the word toroid instead of torus makes me think they might be sort of oval shaped, or resize themselves based on the target width/height.
