Thraddish bug?
« on: June 22, 2009, 11:54:42 pm »

I've been away for a while, so maybe someone else posted this already. I think there's a bug in the way the Thraddish work.

*SPOILER ALERT*


In the normal course of the game, you make friends with the Thraddish and they give you the plans and captains so you can build their Torch ships. Then you steal their artifact and they break the treat, refusing to give you any more starship captains.

However, I managed to steal the artifact without talking to any Threaddish. As a result, the treaty has never been officaly broken and I can still build their ships.

I suspect this is a minor bug and they should break the treaty even if you don't talk with them face to face after stealing their artifact.

Thought?

Technically speaking, they don't know it was you who took it. There are 3 ways to get the helix exposed, so if you do it right they never know...

That sounds like something that was present in the original PC Star Control 2. It's doubtful that the core team will change it.

...Why is that bug still labelled NEW when it was reported two years ago?
