Unable to continue
« on: March 02, 2003, 02:03:39 am »

I've completed all the objectives except the suprise attack on the Mycon and the Chmmr. So I get the go ahead to tell them to breed near (whatever star) except I forget to tell a ship, and instead go directly to their home planet. I deliver the message to the planet, and am simply told to go away. The option to tell them where to go has dissapeared, but they haven't budged. So I'm stuck, since I can't get the sun device off the surface of the planet because the infinite Mycon ships are still there. Any solutions?

Can you be more specific on the delivered what message, they tell you what, and  what do you mean in "except I forget to tell a ship"?

Perhaps you need to give them time to move? it takes a few days before you see actual movement on map.

I apologize for not having been descriptive enough. The previous times that I have beaten the game, I have always delivered the trap-message to a Mycon ship. Instead this time I went directly to the Mycon homeworld and delivered the message. I was simply told to go away.

I have given the Mycon ample time to move. I went ahead and finished a couple of other missions, so that this is the only one to remain. Between the delivery of the message and the present game state, about a month of game time has passed.

I had this same problem playing through the game.

You have to go talk to Mycon patrol ships several times (and either battling them or escaping in the flagship), until they tell you about the Deep Children... then talk to the Syreen... THEN you can go to the homeworld of the Deep Children and tell them to go to Organon.

Of course, you can also talk to the Melnorme and ask for secrets on other races until they tell you about the Mycon Deep Children...  that is, if you have enough credits to spare.

Usually (and I haven't played through UQM this far, it usually wigs out on me and crashes before this happens), in the original game, I go to the Mycon homeworld after I visited a shattered world and ask them "Why are the shattered worlds only found in your region of space?"  And they says "Those are the homes of the Deep Children".  So there you go...

The other methods work too...but that's usually the most direct I've found if it's allowed in UQM.

Maybe you've got the wrong world?  They have a homeworld and the other world...  The other one's the one they refer to as their "sacred place"... so try the other one.

Yeah, they have their homeworld and they have their stronghold world...you know kind of like the VUX and Zex's world and Traddash and the Aqua Helix world?

I had the same issue, and the odd thing is that when you go to the Mycon stronghold at Beta Brahe, 639.5 x 231.2, you get the option in the dialogue to tell them about Organon, but they disregard it and then keep trying to fight you. The Mycon homeworld is located at Epsilon Scopii, 629.1 x 220.8. Once you go there you tell them about Organon the Mycon will then leave and then you must go to Epsilon Scorpii to get the Mycon Sun Device.

Hopefully this will save some hair-pulling for someone down the road.
