I always get stuck somewhere
« on: December 19, 2007, 08:19:52 pm »

I wish this game had a log, a la the Infinity Engine games. Ah well... I'm trying to figure out how to discover the Syreen homeworld ingame. I know there're plenty of websites telling me exactly where it is, but it's far more satisfying to feel like my captain's figuring it out as he goes along, not working by psychic revelation.

I think I read something saying the Melnorme tell me, but I've been through all their conversations, at least *thinking* I was paying attention, and while I remember they mentioned the Syreen I don't remember them giving locations. It'd be really annoying if I managed to miss, because the one thing I always remember when I play this game is that the Syreen quests are always the ones that give me headaches!

If it is the Melnorme, could someone tell me specifically which subject it's on, and how many clues in it is? And if they're feeling *reall* generous, maybe post a transcription of the Melnorme speech? Smiley

Ta,

What about Spathi Captain Fwiffo? He had something to say about the Bug Squirt star system.

I meant Syra, sorry.

Similarly: how am I supposed to find out the location of the Mycon homeworld?

Oh. Well, when I played, I never really asked anyone where things were. I just looked, and found them through logical thinking. When finding the Mycon homeworld, just find a Mycon ship. After blowing it up or running away from it you will see their sphere of influence. Their homeworld should be near the circle's center, as is the case with the Zoq-Fot-Pik, Spathi, and probably everyone else.

As for Syra, I stumbled across it, looked it over, and then forgot where it was. I haven't found it since.

This is generally true. There are a few exceptions, like the Ilwrath, for example.

The Syreen and Mycon are sort of special cases. The Mycon homeworld's coordinates were originally included in their dialog, but those lines were omitted for the 3DO version, and the change has (unfortunately) stuck. See the sticky thread about getting the Mycon to go to Organon if you get sick of randomly wandering around trying to find them.

As for Syra, I believe both the Melnorme and Syreen themselves will tell you the name of the system. In particular, if you ask Talana about the destruction of Syra, I believe she gives you the name at some point in the dialog.

Either way, good luck!

And to make it a bit easier figuring out where Syra is its starsystem, think Earth. I don't think it's the 3rd rock, but otherwise everything's very earth-like in it.

Not in UQM (or 3DO SC2), unfortunately.
