I'm mainly having difficulty navigating manually once I'm in a system, and navigation only lets me travel between systems, not within it, from what I've been trying. Can someone help me here? As in, I just entered a system, and I want to move to a planet, but I can't quite figure out how. -_-; It feels like it's easy enough, but...well, a little help?

As for the pirates, I've managed to shoot them down. It just takes a VERY VERY LONG TIME for them to die, especially if you're only in the default ship from the get go. I've been ambushed by two at one point while I was still trying to figure out how the heck to navigate manually within a system; I shot down one, and forced the other to retreat. Then I looted the remains, but then my ship ran out of fuel. -_- So much for that save.

From what I've read there are cities on some of the planets.* If you scan and find intelligent life you can try to find a city and do some trade.* Plus if a planet has lots of minerals you can mine them and sell them.* My problem is I can't win a fight to save my life.* I keep getting attacked by pirates and the battle goes on and on until I eventually die.* I get the enemy's ship to turn completely red and I hit it about 50 or 60 times.* It just won't die.* Starting to get annoying.
Well, I think that the problem is in the choice of the weapon you make. Like in Freelancer. Different gun for a hull and different to destroy the ship's shielding systems. Try to talk with the guy in the ship store. He will tell you about different types of arsenal.
And anyway...where is the solution announced in the "brilliant" review?

You can travel within systems very easy. Just touch on the map of the system the planet where you want to go. :sneaky:

When on a planet, select manual control and right-click. A yellow pointer should appear. When you are over a resource, left-click to gather it. :ok:

Just point and click to move...?

Okay, I just feel silly now. But thanks anyway.

But then how do you get back into starports? I have tried clicking on it like the planets, but that just doesn't seem to work...

Basarin 15-06-2005 11:10 PM

Nevermind. It was just a navigation issue I was having. Thanks anyway.

Basarin 16-06-2005 09:47 AM

Er...right.

Anyways, a general question here: what is the best way to deal with the aliens? I know for one particular one (the cowardly ones, I forget their name), you just need to be nice to them for them to like you. I don't know how to deal with the hive collective or the others, and even then, I'm not sure how you would get them to ally with the humans. Any input there?
