  1. There is a canister counter in the original Geneforge. It's fairly minor (off the top of my head, all I can think of is the infodump servile for each faction who shows you a mirror), and there are set places in the game where it tells you about how your body is shifting etc. from the canisters, although that part happens even if you don't use any canisters.
  2. You can still join either of the other servile groups or you can, in fact, kill literally everything you can possibly kill on the island and still win the game. Since you have killed Ellhrah, you've already succeeded the requirement necessary to join the Takers, and you can do the Control Four quest without any guilt. Frankly, while the Awakened are personally my preferred faction, their quest chain is a bit of a dead end anyhow, especially if you want to
  3. After much longer than it really should have taken, the first full release of the Geneforge Modding Suite is here! Create and fully customize zones and export them to a complete Geneforge scenario file. NB: Always make a full backup of your Geneforge folders before using any mods. Latest version: Shaper Edition v1.0 Download from Google Drive To get started, extract the contents of GeneMS.zip into a directory of your choice and execute run.bat. A console window will appear and ask you to enter your Geneforge 5 directory, where the executable and Geneforge 5 Files folder are (i.e. C:\Program Files\Geneforge 5). After this is entered, the modding suite will load the textures and present you with a blank zone. Features: Import zones from a Geneforge 5 scenario file with Edit->Import->Zone from Scenario File Edit all zone data* Save and load zones you are working on Export zone to create a scenario file, which will copy the scenario file from your Geneforge 5 folder and make a new one in your GeneMS directory High tech scrolling map Some fully nonfunctional menu buttons Kinda terrible ZoneLab tool that nobody remembers how to use anymore Full creature and object editing, with default script information included *That I could actually figure out To place a tile, terrain piece, item, etc., just left click on the ground where you want to place it. Items, objects and creatures will automatically be aligned to the nearest quarter-tile. To remove terrain, items, objects and creatures, just right click on the tile where you want them removed. Updates: Shaper Edition v1.0: Initial release Upcoming Features: Multi-zone support, editing of placed objects/creatures, expanded menus, undo/redo, other quality-of-life improvements
  4. 1. Probably. 2. Training magic stats is pretty much always worth it when possible. 3. Most important thing to get as an agent is mental magic. You don't need very much healing craft, and you shouldn't put points into it regardless because it is super expensive for agents. Intelligence is really only necessary for essence.
  5. I'd have to check to see what talking to Sniff does, but if it changes an SDF you can just use the "SDF ___ ___ ___" cheat to replicate it. The bigger problem would be that the Sholai in the cave will be hostile to you. I think that in Geneforge 1, the cheat to make people NOT hate you again is 'pleaseforgiveme'.
  6. To expand on what Triumph said, Shaper records are given to the librarian in Pentil, but only if you say the pro-Shaper line when you talk to the Servile for the first time. You can give Shaper equipment to the Serviles in the Junkyard. Concerning the rough crystals, there are (I believe) three machines which turn them into items; terror wands for 25, shaped blades for 50, and swarm crystals for 5. I seem to recall reading somewhere that there are about 100 scattered through the game, so there should be plenty for your needs.
  7. To join the Obeyers, you must A. have anti-servile relations (from treating Serviles like servants) and then B. complete their quest to restore control four.
  8. I would recommend reading Matt P's Geneforge 1 walkthrough for information on the mind nutrients and canister locations, if you're into that kind of thing.
  9. You'll want to get a little later in the game, where Alwan has left (otherwise he's actually unkillable). I've had success baiting a few enemies into my party (admittedly playing as a Lifecrafter with a bunch of wingbolts) and killing them before running out of the zone. You'll eventually kill them all and be able to grab the sick loot, bro.
  10. I would personally go for the Guardian Claymore, but it really depends on whether you want the extra 2 strength/quick action or not (assuming I am recalling correctly - I believe that the shaped blade has higher damage). If you already have high strength and quick action, you may want to use the shaped blade instead (although I would recommend waiting until you can kill Koerner in Poryphra for his puresteel blade). If you're using the infiltrator, you'll definitely want to use the Guardian Claymore. Also, in regards to your question a little ways back in the thread about the best sword, the Puresteel Soulblade does the best damage in the game, but it is only found in the endgame challenge area in the Pit of the Titan, which requires having already reached Northforge.
  11. In regards to your questions about crystals, take a look at this post. In regards to your question about spellcraft, I do not believe it would be worth it to pump it up to 15. The stat that scales best is mental magic, and once you have a decent grounding for your other magic skills, you should put your points into mental magic as a primary-magic character. In regards to your question about editing the save, we don't know a lot about the save format and it would take a while to figure it out. It would be easiest for you to just edit the scripts (see one of the posts in my signature if you want to learn about that) to give you a new copy of the sword and then just discard the old one. However, there are better weapons than the oozing blade and you may want to save the golden crystal for one of those.
  12. I assume he's referring to the soft cap on stats, which I believe is only present in Geneforge 1.
  13. There are very few places in Geneforge 4 where a magic-heavy character will be running low on spell energy. When I've played a Lifecrafter, I've only ever had issues with spell energy right after learning and switching to ice spray, and Infiltrator gets even more spell energy than the Lifecrafter does. Do you mean essence?
  14. The simplest way for it to be consistent with G4 would be for Greta to leave after the second island because you kill the rebels, and Alwan to leave you after the third island because you repair the creator.
  15. Except that the G3 PC never used the Geneforge in the game, and isn't indicated to have used one later one (not to mention the Geneforge the rebels used was fairly weak and only gave you the capability of Shaping). When you use the Geneforge in G5, it explicitly tells you that you've used the Geneforge before. Since the canon ending for G4 is the rebel ending, it's more likely that the G5 PC is the G4 PC.
