Problem in Hyperspace (Ilwrath sorrounded me)
« on: July 04, 2005, 11:27:01 pm »

I was collecting resources in Ilwrath territory, Ilwrath ships were following me in Hyperspace. I've hidden myself in nearest star system. And now I cannot go anywhere! When I leave system the Ilwrath ships attack me. When I defeat (or escape - no matter) one of them, another one appears immediately!
I tried to fight, and destroyed ~20 ship stacks (1 to 4 ships each) but they still appear again and again! Same with escaping.
That's very sad because i have 6 cargo bays full with resources for about 20000 RUs and 350 bio. And previous save was long ago.

P.S. No Portal Spawner yet.
I cannot even imagine possible solution...

Looks like if you can't get free you'll need to reload.

Without cheating, you're pretty much screwed.

The easiest way is to switch the ship files. First, rename the uqm-0.4-content.uqm file to uqm-0.4-content.zip. Then you can use a program such as WinZip to extract files from it. Just extract 'spathi.shp' and put it in the content dir (the dir that contains 'version', and 'packages'), but rename it to 'ilwrath.shp'. It will override the ilwrath.shp file in the .zip file.
Your Ilwrath friends will be replaced by harmless Spathi.
Load the game, get yourself to safety, save, and then put everything back the way it was.

Thanks for the great idea! But without Auto-Tracking module on my ship Spathi ships are even tougher then Ilwrath. :-)

I changed Ilwrath to Shofixti, and my own Spathi ship to Korh-Ah ship. And it worked! I annihilated some little ships and the way home became free!

P.S. I started to fear of those little moving black holes in Hyperspace...

Oh right. I was mixing some things up. You're just replacing the ships, and not the dialogs. Messing with .con files instead of .shp files may have that effect, but I haven't tried that.

Maybe ships appearing depends on global timer instead of in-game timer? When I fight Ilwrath i spent so much time that another stack of ships appears in Hyperspace. But when I fight Shofixti there is not enough time for new ships to appear.
