Star Control 3
« on: November 30, 2005, 08:38:20 pm »

I have a question for you guys about Star Control 3. I have played all the way to the end and am now getting sentience from all the races but heres the odd thing. When I went back to highpoint 1 to use the device it told me I didn't have enough sentience and I went on the Icom and it said I needed to collect sentience from -1 races. anyone know whats up?!

My suggestion would be to load the game before you have collected the sentience and collect it from one less race.

Probably in the code they uses (sentience == numberRequired)  instead of  (sentience >= numberRequired)  for the win condition.

That's not the problem. I definatly used all possible races (16, I believe), 3 more than necessary.

Maybe it simply says - 1 more to go, and always has the - before the number.

Or it's a problem with modern OS's. I've played it under Win95 and it was bordering the possibilities of SC3.

What happens if you visit one race more?
Goes it to -2?

Can't really help much further, I just played the game once, completed it and threw the box in the cupboard.

Enjoy!

Ballad of the Eternal Ones

I wanna be the very best, like no race ever was.
To get sentients is my real test, to eat them is my cause...
I will travel across Hyperspace, munching here and there,
These Sentients to understand, the hunger that's inside.
Sentients...gotta eat 'em all!!
It's true for me...
I know it's di-e-tar-y
Sentients...Oh..you're my best friend,
In a space we must contend.
Sentients...gotta eat 'em all!!
A mind so true--I'll have to consume you too!
You think of me and I'll find you!
Sent-i-ents!
Gotta Eat 'Em All!
Gotta Eat 'Em All!
SC3!

Well at least you won't have to worry about the Uhlek anymore.
