How to use the Burvix caster
« on: May 25, 2010, 04:23:32 pm »

I found the Burvix Caster, went to the Ilwrath homeworld and talked to them for some time. I didn't see the opportunity to use the caster in my conversations with them. They eventually attacked.

I didn't see a way to have it installed at the starbase, so what am I missing?

If you're trying to play a trick on them, perhaps it would be best to do so before they're aware of your presence.

Sheesh! I guess it pays to learn all about your starship. I never even went into the device section.

Thanks for the reply.

... Have you talked with the Arilou?

No, I haven't spoken to the Arilou. Can't find them. It doesn't matter anyway. When I got the beast, suddenly the Kohr-Ah seemed to wipe out all of the civilizations except for the Yehat.

I may have to start over. I thought that the game wasn't linear/timed, but I guess that it is.

Yes, it is, and it's a travesty that much the dialogue telling you that was cut for the 3d0 release and another that it has not been restored for UQM.

Even so, it was possible to miss. My first playthrough, we didn't realize time was an issue soon enough and didn't prioritize thrusters. We were crawling everywhere. Sigh.

Thanks for the reply. I had a lot of time put into the game just to have it end like that. Maybe I'll go with Star Control II since I have to start over. I have Star Control 3, but somehow it's not the same.
