Contacting Arilou and delivering Shofixti maiden: Stupid me or bug?
« on: January 19, 2006, 12:53:55 am »

Hi there!

I have two major problems winning the game:

I cannot make contact with the arilou. Maybe I'm just too stupid, but I've tried it @ 613.4 : 590.0 many times at different dates and never succeeded. Any hint's what I'm doing wrong? How did you establish the contact?

The other problem that I have is that I cannot deliver the Shofixti maiden. I have them on board, but cannot tell Tanaka that I have them. No matter what I tell him, he will attack me. I have also tried settling them on each planet of delta Gorno or use the Maiden device in direct proximity to Tanaka, nothing has worked so far.

I'm glad for any help!

the coordinates are 43.8:637.2

it opens on the 17th of any month until the 20th

you must insult Tanaka for him to realize you are not Ur-Quan, because the Ur-Quan are always formal, although evil

Other races will know when the portal is visible (though they don't know what it is). Ask around. Your coordinates are wrong too. They are the QuasiSpace coordinates of something interesting.

Yes, Tanaka will attack you. And yes, you don't want him dead.

I believe that you can make contact with the arilou in the proper region at any time, although they won't be of much use unless you find their homeworld.

You are correct, Halleck. The Arilou have a small SOI centered around the portal location, which they patrol just like any other race. However, talking to Skiff captains is pretty much useless, unless you want to pick a fight with them for some reason; I think you learn most, if not all, of the Arilou's useful information at their homeworld.

Actually, the Arilou in-space ships work just like the Pkunk in-space ships: each time you meet one, you can ask it for some info... This way, you'll learn about stuff like The Words, etc... Though most of that info isn't of too much use, though... But as always there's got to be something yo didn't know yet...

Ah yes... the words. My favorite stalling tactic.  Grin

Too bad the Ur-Quan try to kill you anyways after they explain themselves.

The wandering Arilou will also tell you all about the Deep Children, which is a good thing.

Thanks a lot for your numerous answers! I guess that should help.

I'll be off into hyperspace and see if I got the message  Grin

Yup, that has helped. The Shofixti still haven't created a new generaion because Tanaka attacks me even if I insul him and when I don't defend myself, he kills me. So what! The Sa-Matra is history. Thanks a lot!

Stalefish, if you're still curious about Tanaka, and don't mind a more blatant hint:

How did that old saying go..."He who fights and runs away, lives to fight another day."

Suicide is not the only peacable option in combat. Smiley

So this answers my initial question: Stupid me!  Wink
So far I had never made use of he escape-button so I just never thought of this being a possibility. Thanks!

yea what do you know, the darn thing actually has a use Smiley...

Although I hear that if you kill him, and then go and aquire the maidens or do some other things (maybe wait for a certain date) his brother shows up at that system, and that he is more willing to talk before firing.
