You CAN fail the Shofixti repopulation quest by just killing both Shofixti males. You evil evil person...


"Both" Shofixti males? am I missing something here? I do remember only one!

Oh! by the way... question - you can sell the Portal Spawner to the Druuge.. I never tried that! what happens? do they take over the Arilou? what does the Arilou say? Is it possible that the Druuge exterminate the Arilou at their home planet? hahah that'd be interesting to see what remains there  Roll Eyes

If you kill Tanaka, his brother Katana shows up and vows to avenge his death.  (until you talk him out of it)

I don't think anything happens.  Even looked at the source, not sure though (don't know the source that well yet), but no flags get set for selling it to the Druuge other than giving you the ships/fuel involved.

You can also sell the Shofixti females to the Druuge.

Also got a good number of thoughts about changes/mods to the game...don't have the time to mess with it though  :-/

I poked around the source and data files and found this:

It has come to our attention that you have female Shofixti creatures on board your ship.  We have the means to fertilze these creatures artificially allowing us to produce a hybrid beast to attend our furnaces.  We must have those females, Captain!  We are prepared to offer you fully six of our devastating Mauler starships in exchange.


Wonder what this hybrid would look like?  A rotting dripping snot-nosed furball in chains? lol  Grin

Lack of interest at GameFAQs (virtually no one posts on their message board) has convinced me not to post a guide for all these mods. But I'm still sure as heck going to try them out.

Ooh - another challenge!
- Only use the save and load features to allow you to leave the game for a while. When something screws up, take the consequences like a man!

I bet that investments in landers will rise considerably...

Absolutely wonderful idea, Death 999. Maybe some day you'll get promoted to Death 998 (like after that other guy gets obliterated by a hellbore cannon).

Here's another variant to place a bit of difficulty into the game:

Don't use the portal spawner.  In fact, piss off the Arilou or if you want the ships take the portal spawner and sell it the Druuge.  But don't ever use it.

Here's one, although it seems annoying more than difficult.

Never solve the Slylandro probe infestation. Combine this with a low enough number of thrusters (four or five?), so running away isn't an option. It should make things pretty hectic if the game drags out to 2160 (which it very well might, due to the slowness of your ship).

And/or, don't use the caster to call for the Melnorme, when you need them, go to a supergiant. Using them for help when fuel runs out completely isn't allowed.

Reminds me - what is the probability that the Melnorme will be at a supergiant when you show up? Is it certain (though they may be hidden near a planet)?
