Super bird?!?
Greetings, units.

I was just playing the 'Smuggler's Alliance' level, and found out that the birds of Naboo appear to have shielding technology.

!!!!!! Really.

Toward the beginning of the level, right after you save the first homestead, you come upon a second homestead under attack. There is some kind of bird flying around there that I chased for about five minutes on a heavy STAP. I nailed that sucker twice, and each time the shot glanced off the bird as if it had shields like the droid fighters.

How can this happen?

That is strange, after you hit it about 3 or 4 times it goes down in flames. Maybe it has something to do with the energy things the hutt was mining.

New theory: perhaps the bird is the Trade Federation's version of a UAV, designed to simulate a living organism.

If so, we must rid our skies of birds immediately. For Naboo!

Hmmmmm, this is a old one. What first time I heard about this was when I entered the code to here the commentary the folks at Factor 5 and Lucas Arts do on the game. The birds can be "killed" but there was a problem when the designers set the birds as actual blips on your radar. What happened was that the STAPS attacked the birds and they would go down in flames... so to prevent this they took the birds off the target lists... (if that made sense)... the reason for it going down in flames must be cause that's how the game is programmed... anything airbourne that is registered as destroyed must go down in flames... heh

Hmm. Intriguing.

However, my theory helps explain why a bird would be slowly flying around a noisy laser battle instead of taking for the hills...

LOL! I gotta play BfN! (Now that I HAVE it...)

BTW Imladil, that's you isn't it?

Are you my math teacher?

Math teacher???.................

Pet psychiatrist, then?

Lynk Former 10-14-2001 05:20 AM

Er... yes


Evil Spock 10-15-2001 04:49 AM

Would the great and legendary Imladil be zooming around on a heavy STAP, shooting at some damn bird, instead of fighting the bad guys?

I think not...

Lynk Former 10-15-2001 08:47 AM

and where is this leading?...


Wade Vox 10-16-2001 04:12 PM

This seems like another infernal Q&A thread...
Maby the birds had secret Naboo data strapped to them so the droids try to kill them? The Nunas (Neimodian Plunder) appear to have this trait too.
