Stuck on Containment

Postby Aaargh » Mon Apr 24, 2006 9:20 pm

I have all buildings in Containment under my control and I have used up all my research.
Now I can't upgrade the officers to give them the follow command so I can transport Darwinians trough radar dishes.
Thus, I can't get enough Darwinians on the first island, making it for me impossible to win. Resetting the level doesn't reset your research, so i'm quite stuck...

You can use goto to send DGs through the radar. Align the dishes, the, with an officer selected, right click on the entrance to a radar. The DGs should flock right that way, and be transported.

However, you do have to make sure that the radar is aligned. Radars send only, so if you have A aligned with B, but want to send units from B to A, you have to make sure that B is pointing right back at A.

I'm not sure I understand your comment... what do you mean by touchy?

A radar dish can be used to send DGs to another radar dish. However, in order for one dish to be able to do so, it has to be facing (i.e. be aligned with) another dish, and that dish has to be facing back at the first dish. I don't see how this is ridiculous.

unless it did, and we just missed it

Tutorial? You mean the Garden level? It is demonstrated there, though as I recall, it is possible to skip past it.
