UQM/SC2 Strategy Guide?
« on: December 13, 2007, 08:22:59 pm »

SC2 was one of my absolute favorite games as a teenager, and nearly 15 years later, UQM just shows that a true classic is timeless. I have been looking for a walkthrough, however, and really haven't had the best of luck. I found one on PNF... it was only halfway complete, looked like, and did not offer what I *REALY* was hoping to find, the locations of some good worlds to mine. At this rate, I'm going to diddle fart around the galaxy looking for stuff to mine that the Kohr-Ah will be opening a Mc Donalds in Zimbabwe before I have enough decent minerals.

I found an excel spreadsheet that supposedly showed the locations of the best mining worlds.... but as fate would have it, I don't have Excel... so I'm shit outta luck in that department. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

There's a colaborative walkthrough in the Ultronomicon here.

Shiver has made a very thorough walkthrough on his own, which can be found here.

But for maximum enjoyment of the game, I would suggest that you play without a walkthrough, and don't worry too much about optimal gameplay. You'll probably not make it to the end before the time is up, but then you start over and you do. It's a lot more fun than following some strategy guide, or trying things and returning to older savegames all the time.

If you mean one of the spreadsheets at the PoNaF SC2 files section, you can use OpenOffice instead.

As yet another alternative, you could always download the official Excel viewer from Micro$oft.
