Time limit?
« on: December 02, 2002, 07:01:28 pm »

I remeber something baout there being a one year time limit to this game (until you set something in action).  Does this hold true for this version or is it just my old memory playing tricks on me.

You've got four years time before bad things start to happen, and you can postpone it by another year.

Yup, A time limit. In The Ur-Quan Masters it seemed that it is gone (Or is the date just missing...?)
         Time limit is a bad and good thing same time. Bad because knowing that there is a time limit makes you nervous (It makes me. Maybe I just suck in SC2). Good because it will give you freedom to do what you want when you want. Maybe there could be difficulty levels??

the utwig and supox go and fight the kohr ah once you fix the ultron.

you can also have the thraddash attack, but its better to have the ilwrath attack the thrads...

You can do both, actually. What I mean is you can send the Thraddash after the Kohr-Ah and then later send the Ilwrath after the Thraddash. Doing so has the same effect as not having the Thraddash attack the Kohr-Ah (trying not to give *too* much away here, just in case) =)

Getting the Thraddash to attack the Kohr-Ah doesn't give you any extra time.

TIME LIMIT -- MIGHT BE SPOILERS
« Reply #7 on: December 03, 2002, 06:06:20 am »

Actually, I read about several things in the 3DO version in a Tips & Tricks magazine many, many years ago.

THE FOLLOWING MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS.


First, I thought the last year you have before the Ur-Quan starts to destroy everybody was 2163.  They supposedly go after every race and destroy them.  After they do that, they go after the Earth Starbase, which means "Game Over".  In effect, doesn't that give you eight years?  Or is it that you have four years before the Ur-Quan start doing stuff, but it doesn't end until several years afterwards?

Second, I read that you could delay the Ur-Quan's rampage through space until 2164 (an extra year) if you find and repair some ancient weapon for some race.  Is this true?

I fell victim to the 4 year limit, currently I'm disabled in one hand so I went from fight fight fight to flee flee flee. In 2158 I finally got to check out the Zots and enroute ran into a Kzer-za whosaid that time was up. I watched in horror as every few months another race ceased to exist. It was quite depressing to watch each race one by one get annihilated. Cry

They start killing everyone in 2160. It happened to me in the UQM because I was playing around, instead of doing what I was suppost to do, so I had to go back to an old save. Anyway, it's no big deal. If you've playied the game before it should be easy for you to complete every task in more then enough time (even if the Utwig and Supox didn't give you an extra year).

Correction...they finish killing everyone in 2160 (if you don't talk with the supox and utwig).

After killing everyone in 2160, do they immediately head for the Earth Starbase?

Yes, they kill all battle thralls first, then all other races. The last one to die, before you, is the Yehat. Once they're dead, you'll only a short time before they say something about all races being dead, including those on the starbase and then the game is over (you see the Korh-Ah head toward Earth, on your map).

The first time I completed the game the Kohr-Ah helped me... They started to rampage around the galaxy destroying people and in doing so destroyed the fleet around a planet i needed to get to the surface of...  It's ten years ago but it might have been the Mycon planet with the Sun Device...  I then managed to hurtle around doing what I needed to do to complete the game, I think the Zoq Fot Pik were just about to be vapourised when I managed to destroy the Sa Matra...

The second time I managed to kick the Kohr-Ah all over the show before the time limit was up. Smiley
