can i still finish this game or am i totally screwed?
« on: December 15, 2005, 11:36:34 pm »

i didn't get the sun device while the Mycon where pursuing the syreen trap. frankly, i never even heard of it in the game, i found out about it here on the forums. is there a way to get it now that the mycons are back or am i screwed?

also. . .

i gave the maidens to captain katana and he took off with them . . .  when or where do i get some shofixty fighters?

i can't find the ilwrath homeworld, but whenever i try to use the caster on them they tell me to talk to the leaders at "homeworld". what do i do?

a) I'm not sure, but I think it's still possible for you to win. Wait long enough and something will happen that should allow you to get the sun device. Note - be very fast!

b) Just wait. Even the Shofixti can't raise an army in a day; it takes them a couple of months.

c) The Ilwrath are unique in that their fleet bubble isn't on their homeworld. Search a bit to the north.

I'm not positive about this, but the Mycon "special place" may still be under-guarded after their broken fleet returns. It's worth a check. If not, let a couple years slip by and let The Reaper do his work on the silly mushroom men.

Ilwrath live about the west side of the Starmap, slightly above the pink circle in the map, and I don't know about the sun device, didn't even know the mycon would even return at all... The Kohr-Ah killed those fungi for me...   Smiley, and you're not suppose to enter just in the pink circle in the starmap if u wanna use the caster to communicate, you have to enter the home star system itself.

No, you're not. The moment the Mycons start for the trap, their defense at one of their worlds is dramtically decreased and will NEVER return to full strength. Even AFTER their SOI (=sphere of influence) has returned.

How many sleepless nights he will have? How many kama-sutras he must excercise to bring you and your people a few hairy dog-like beings?
You want to kill him, right?
And those kids need to be raised as well! Don't expect miracles. Rome wasn't built in a day!

Ask the ships where they came from, before entering battle (after picking up normal communications). At some point, they will tell you.
Yes, it is a dangerous universe. but you're the hero, remember?

Otherwise, look for some help in forums like www.dlh.net dirty little helper. There you'll find some faqs spoiling the solutions for you.

Enjoy!,
