TH clue 7

Post by Sardaukar2488 » Mon, 9. Aug 10, 08:14

I'm stumped on clue 7 atm and not sure what to try. Ive got vanilla 2.7.1 and when i go to the coords given in
SpoilerShow
herrons nebula (0,-50,0)
there is no crate. Another poster ages ago mentioned the same thing and said that reloading from a previous save worked for him. Unfortunately it did not for me. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

You should re-read the information given on the first page.

I am having a bit of a problem with part 4, I went to Akleela's Beacon, immediate saw two nav beacons, first spawned a few Kha'ak and the second put me right back at the warp gate coming from Aladana Hill....and nothing. Not data storage device to be found. I have searched high and low all over the sector and can find nothign now, not even any more beacons.

Any ideas?

Hmmm... Did you try reloading from a save? And perhaps also rebooting the computer?

I was trying to avoid going back to a save. But I was going to try that tonight if nothing else comes up

for the mission guildence, just go back to a previous save and re-do it, for finding the first device however

SpoilerShow



its a huge nividuim rock in ore belt, and you can mine it as well as receive the device.

1stly - get device..
2ndly mine the nividium! big credits for the nividium....




hopefully that should help...

To confirm in TC:3.0

The passengers in the last mission /have/ to be carried by your personal ship: if you transferred away during the last part, the mission won't be completed until you have docked at the correct station & transferred the passengers back to you

If you leave the last part too long
SpoilerShow
The Pirate Albatross may well be surrounded by ships too powerful for you to defeat & then board the ship. In the current game I had a Shrike, a Deimos & assorted other M8s, M6s & M3s to deal with. When I first checked the area there were a few Yaki M4s & the like - easy protection for a half-decent ship. By the time I had trained my marines however the pirate had gathered many enemies - too many for my under-armed Cobra to disburse. Others more experienced than me may use this as a boarding exploit; I chose to take the passengers & run

BTW the boarding commands will /not/ work until the last passenger is aboard - this includes boarding pods - so don't bother flying up close & grabbing the passengers whilst your BPs are inbound as you won't be able to launch them
Have fun!

The above worked like a charm. I only recently discovered the treasure hunt, so I had already had 10 marines trained up and waiting. This was my first organized attempt to capture anything.
SpoilerShow
I jumped a Cobra to the south gate, and positioned it around 20 km SW from Albatross, keeping the Cobra clear of the Albatross' course east as well helping to avoid embarrassing attempts to board asteroids through poor line of sight. While the Cobra gets into position I arrived using the east gate in my Griffon loaded up with IPG's, ID's and FAA's (it's worth noting every time I tried using south gate the Albatross would move far enough east for the Deimos to take notice of causing all sorts of problems with my levels of patience for the Paranid)

After disposing of the three of four fighter groups, and taking the hull down to 75% purely out of superstition, I shut everything but the ID's on the front turret down and signalled the Cobra to begin negotiations, which went swimmingly. =) And all my marines lived!!

Ok this is odd, as a semi newbie:

I go to the second step of mission, to meet the Susanowa in Yaki sector...

1) The Yaki go enemy on me (from friendly) and keep doing so even if I turn it off to friend again because I assume of the resulting battles it triggers, see #2 below

2) They have an M1 CARRIER in the zone!!! argh!! now I cna take it out but lose 3 or 4 ships doing so at best (In a panther with 12 x M3's)
is that the one the quest reffers to?

maybe if I jump out, fly back in my fast M3 Mamba raider ot get ot Usanowa and sitll be able to deal with stuff?

meh this is first time with game I've been fed up with it :/

Follow the guidance system, all you need to do is talk to the Susanova guy 3 times, then the guidance change to you destroy some sat and Lasertower.

As for the M1, well you will have to wait or "make" it go away.

MFG

PS.: if you fed up already you will not like the rest of the plot. :roll:

One way to deal with red ships you don't want to destroy(or can't), is to fly in with a fast ship(kestrel comes to mind). Fly away from the area you want to work in. When far enough away, engage SETA and go fix a cup of coffee, nice spot of tea or a couple fingers of scotch(whatever suits you). When they are far away from your point of interest, jump back to the gate and get to work. They'll be a while getting back.
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.

Brute force and ignorance solves all problems, just not very efficiently.

If brute force isn't working, then you aren't using enough.
