Fun to see that starscape is still alive. I played it in 2004 and just re installed it. Seeing all these challenges, i wonder if anyone has tried to finish it on hard level with only a runabout?
Currently im in zone 4, its do able but very hard... Saved 2 times so far.

I think I was the first confirmed person to finish the game on Normal using a runabout so it's unlikely that anyone has done it on Hard. But I imagine it is doable, particularly if you take advantage of some of the "cheats" such as reloading when your ship is in danger. And I never equipped the runabout with any decent stuff, which makes things unnecessarily hard.

Spoiler (highlight to read):
One of the biggest threats is the Graviton capital ships; without a shield, these things will just kill you if you are caught in their gravity fields.

Spoiler (highlight to read):
those things are easy
its the drones they spawn that kill you


you just gota learn how to turn the grave field into an advantage
hit revese and orbit the gravatron while taking potshots at the core


but i couldent imagine fighting them without shields

A Runabout is perfectly capiable of running Shield IV's.

The catch is while you wait for everything except weapons to upgrade to level IV, You can only hold one level II or III component.

Sorry, "no new nav item" bug ??

I wasn't aware there was such a bug - doh! - if you send in a save game to supportATmoonpodDOTcom i'll have a look. If you miss picking up the info pod and kill all the mining barges the boss should reveal himself anyway.
