Cloaking Device for Flagship
« on: November 20, 2005, 07:55:38 am »

This is strechin the memory a ways but in the oringinal manual that came with the game you can see a "Cloaking Device" in one of the example pictures of the devices column along with the sun device and a caster from memory.

Back in the day I spent days looking for this thing in and around the illwrath SOI , then I came to the conclusion that if it was in-game it would be on a planet cloaked and if I ever wanted to find it I would need to go over every inch of every planet and well at that point I wasnet pre-pared to commit to that much time hehehe Cheesy

so since you guys are coding it is there a cloaking device at all in the orignal code ?

Yes, but you have to visit the Druuge on the correct day of the month and you have
to be holding the correct device. They'll sell it to you if you promise to
stand on one foot and give them the Spathi passphrase.

this isnt the original code. This is the code for the REMAKE! The original code was never released, and some things were lost on the transfer to the remake.

The PC SC2 source code is officially lost and UQM is based on the 3DO source code, which in turn is based on the PC code. If you want a conspiracy to cover up a hidden cloaking device, you could claim that the cloaking device was removed from the UQM sources before TFB released them. Wink

Don't waste your energy; there is no and was no such device even in the original game. It was in development but they decided to take it out.
