HEXEPHET-

You are suspended in mid air with beautiful blue lights swirling about your body while in the distance looms a vast alien landscape. It is an unusual and peaceful feeling much like the whimsical dreams of your childhood. But suddenly you realize that it is not a dream nor is it anything remotely beautiful. As you slowly come out of your daze, you remember that you were intercepted while trying to escape from Star bas 861. Theses graceful blue lights and melodic humming are none other than the product of a Skaarj death chamber warming up to a suitable cooking temperature. Yes… those vibrant colors and foreign sounds will most likely be the last things that you see and hear, the final moments in an seemingly endless day.

…..Better start thinking……

OBJECTIVES-for: Hexephet

1. If you survive your death sentence, it would be advisable to reclaim your weapons which are more than likely inside the Skaarj attack craft.

2. There is an old Skaarj mining ship and the remnants of a Tarydium smelter not too far from the location where you were shot down. Your best bet in escaping from this mud covered Alien jungle is to gain access to the ship and see if you can find a teleporter powerful enough to get you home or at least to somewhere a bit more friendly. There is however one problem. You must find a way to deactivate the security gate separating you from the old mining ship.

3. Hexephet, named after it's founder and chief overseer, has a variety of installations which were built in the prosperous years. You will need to navigate most of these facilities in order to find an entrance to the main security tower as well as the supplies to survive.

OBJECTIVES-for: The Fission Smelter

1. Once inside the old Skaarj mining ship, you will have to fight like hell to make your way to the crews quarters and teleportation stations which are located somewhere on the upper decks of the vessel. Don't expect to take too many of the ships workers by surprise; most of them have been informed of your presence and will actively be seeking you out.

2. As is typical of older Skaarj engineering, a good deal of the Tarydium fission smelter has been adjoined to several of the appropriate departments on the mining ship. Keeping this in mind, you should try to find any weaknesses which this presents in the ships security. For example-AUTOMATED SECURITY SYSTEMS.

3. You will discover that the real task at hand is dealing with the overseers of the Hexephet compound and mining operation. Two Lords, Hexephet and Jhize, must be found and eliminated in order to activate the crews emergency evacuation teleporter. Each Lord resides in some distant part of the galaxy. The first can most likely be found basking leisurely under an alien sun while the other seems to prefer the icy and barren caverns of a long forgotten and deserted moon.

TIPS and TRICKS-

Watch out for Lava-this is the really hot kind. In other words, if you fall into it- you will die instantly!

From time to time-If you find the performance on your computer is slowing down a bit as you play through these maps, try typing in the command "flush" at the ~ I think it helps to remove stored textures from the memory thus giving you a little boost in performance.
