Seems like digitizing the manual that came in the SC2 box would be a good idea.

I've got all these manuals in PDF form, they came with the bonus SC2 copy included in the SC3 package I've bought.

Also, the Ilwrath will tell you exactly where their homeworld is, if you talk to them enough.  I think so, at least.  I never actually went there (damn cloaking devices!).

Since the gameplay doesn't adopt any previous paradigms, an FAQ about exactly _how_ one should be playing it would be very appreciated. I've looked at other online strategy guides, but they all take more or less the form of walkthroughs, and I'm not looking for specifics.


The game attempts to place you into that reality.  It's not going to tell you what to do but you have to figure things out as you go.  This means as a first step talking to the starbase commander until you're blue in the face.  This also means getting a sheet of paper and taking good notes on interesting things you run across, like homeworld locations, and tasks that are suggested.  And when you encounter aliens, this means talking with them as much as possible, often making repeated trips.  Often times remember too that they'll relate stories and things that are important but are often not obvious (the Pkunk are big on this one).  Some of it takes a little exploring too.  The big thing to remember is to press your ALT key or whatever it is to review the conversations, read them, and think about what they're saying, and taking notes when you see "facts" about locations of items and home worlds and the concerns of the aliens you deal with (as well as how hostile they are).

Hope this helps.

While bumping a two week old thread wouldn't normally be a big deal, Captain Smith, it can be annoying when you bump multiple ones, as you are pushing more recent topics off the first page of the forum.  

I hate to bring it up here, but you haven't registered so I can't send you an instant message.

That's one thing that always blew my mind. Trying to use the Umgah caster in every single system in Ilwrath space... only to discover that their homeworld is outside their bloody (no pun intended) sphere of influence.

I can just hear them shouting "Hallelujah!" every time you come to the board.

Hey, that would be neat - a ship that would die and then come back when a later ship died. Alone, it's not powerful. With others, it can get a second chance... Hmm...

I'll admit, posts are quickly disappearing off the first page of the forums, but there are more people posting than ever and I don't really mind reading a lot of the old posts.

Ahhh, the search for Ilwrath space... that's where a map with the game comes in handy.

Yeah, even though it does get confusing, it really isn't that much of a problem Parker, is it? I mean, you seem to be on everyone about this. Again, if we had a few more forums, it'd be easier, but this works as well. One just has to jump back and forth a bit more, and occasionally one loses a thread somewhere. Still ,that's life.

Also, this place is more active then when BioSlayer was around (and that was briefly very active Smiley ), which is good.

Considering I get in less fights now than I did when BioSlayer first joined, I'm very happy...  but now I have no scapegoat to vent my anger on.  I'll have to find some helpless, defensiveless newb to seek as prey.  He will feel the wrath of my mighty, strangling tentacles.  That poor, unsuspecting soul will be my slave and banished to a life of pain forever.

This coming from the guy with the Fot as his forum picture... lol.   Grin

Rockasaurus Rex is too nice for that kind of fate. I didn't keep track of Bioslayer very much, but I can kind of see why people would have a problem with him. I still say NEMT is far worse than anyone else that's ever posted here, but can you tell me specifically which topics he got in a fight with you and/or other members?

I'm just coming across NEMT's old posts, and I happen to agree with you... he does seem to come off as rather uncivil and condescendingly antisocial.

But anyways, I'm curious along with Shiver: what did Bioslayer do to incur your interminable wrath, Omni?

Well, if memory serves me right (and being enlightened, I'm fairly sure it does), you're the one that called his post a vacouos waste of space.... Suffice to say that while you didn't have any major fights, you were never really on good terms were you? He did take his ideas quite seriously, and you're style doesn't always go well down with everyone Omni Wink

I miss him though... Whenever you get to the Dnyarri topic he creeated Primat, you'll see why. We had such a lovely discussion. In more topics than one as well....

As for NEMT, he was just moving out when I was moving in, but he did have a wee bit of a SC3 issue. I don't think he got banned, he simply got bored and found somewhere else with people who felt the same way...
