Strategy Guide #7: Yavin Swamp Crashed Pod (SPOILERS!!!)

Okay, several people have said that they've gotten to the crashed pod on the swampy Yavin level and can't figure out what to do next. Here are some progressive hints (scroll down to see them, stop scrolling when you think you can figure out the rest yourself)...

First Hint: The way to progress *is* by the crashed pod... concentrate your search around there.

Answer: In the pond adjacent to the pond with the crashed pod, there is a waterfall. Under the waterfall is a small underwater passage into the next area.

what next - Yavin (spoiler)

Okay, I may very well be a total idiot. But I'm on Yavin, I've gone under the water fall. Killed a couple more Dark Armor Jedi. Jumped on top of some other ship and stood next to a rebel trooper.

Now what? where do I go?

When you say pod you mean the crashed pod with the stormtrooper in it right? I don't if it's my graphic card or what but I don't see any waterfall anywhere. I swam all around under the water but didn't see anything. Been stuck there an hour hating it heh

Yes ChangKhan mean's the pod with the stormtrooper at the top. If you look at it dead on, there's an area to the left (and just behind as it forks). There is a pool of water there, that just looks like a pond, go crouch in it and you'll find a gap to swim through.

I found those hints kindof misleading. First of all, the pool that the waterfall is in is actually connected by water to the pool that pod is crashed in. It only looks separate when you look at depths of the water. Second, a lot of gamers are used to looking for waterfalls as texture, where as this one is a particle effect. It's also the only waterfall in the game, at least up to that point, so there's no previous experience to go off of.

That really is a hard place to find.


Did you know that if ants were as long as humans are tall and maintained the same speed/body size ratio they would walk at something like 45 mph? (about 75 kph I think) Running they could probably get up to over 100 mph.

Okay...that was easy. I feel like a dork. Kept trying to climb the trees to get out. Supposed to be saving the New Republic, kicking the poodoo out of the worst that the Remnant can throw at me and I can't even climb a bloody tree.

Akai, tell me about it!!!! lol

I was totally syuck on that part too, climbed a mountain, jumped a few feet, killed a few people then i thought "uh, no what..?" also, if ChangKahn reads this, can you give me a tad of tech help? My specs are:

AMD Athlon XP 1600+
Geforce II MX400 64MB
256 MB RAM

I usually hit about 80/90fps during the game, then on yavin swamps my framerte hit an all tie low of between 7 & 19fps and it just wouldn;t get higher

Anyone know anything?


Away with your weapon! I mean you no harm!

I was quite lucky I didn't get stuck here, cos I pushed the stormie that was covering this hole, and he stayed there so I had to crouch to kill him and found it. :P

What do do after you cross the waterfalls...

I did get past the waterfall luckily without using this spoiler. But then i get to a huge area with some stormtroopers etc. I kill m all and walk on.. but then...i get stuck in a small area with 2 trees and an underwaterpassage which seems to be blocked?
Not too clear but maybe someone can help me out

Question

Ok, I found the "path under the waterfall" without the spoiler but then i got stuck. Theres no where to go as far as i can see from that point. Of course the graphical problems dont help with that rain. Theres just this enclosed swamp area with a tree or 2 and no more underwater paths except the one I came through. I think I have the same prob as above. Can anyone help us?

I know this is a bit late but... Warning. Frame Rates on Yavin Swamp will drop due to weather effect. Seems the Geforce 2 and 3 have hard times with this map but 4's do fine. Anything less than a 2 MX and may god have mercy on your poor vid card.

Are you talking about the first crashed ship or the second? The first one, you need to notice the fact you have to jump up a bit and run around a corner and then head straight to it. Problem is, you don't want to go to it, since it's a "flag" if you will.

BTW incase anyone needs to know, I made it under the so called waterfall and then cleaned out the rest of the rabble on the other side. I had a problem getting out of there, not knowing where to go, then found a cave off to the left of where you enter. Seems if you go deep enough you can hear the imperial drone. Keep your eye out, as you can see the cave forks.

Man I can't find $HIT!! - Where is the Waterfall?!
Is The WaterFall that DIRTY BROWN COLOR THINGY THAT LOOKS LIKE ITS COMING DOWN


Hear is my location - You can see the smoke and flames from this tree you can stand on sorta, but no way can you jump on the rocks to get to the crash.

Now is that Crash on top of the Rock WAY WAY HIGH UP THERE, CRASH SITE #1 OR CRASH SITE #2

Seriously, I'm F)))KING LOST!!
Anyway - Im HOPPING AROUND EVERY DAMN ROCK IN YAVIN SWAMP, AND I CANT FIND $HIT, OR MY WAY OUT....

Anyone know where this waterfall is, and when I get to it, The Hiding Place is location under the waterfall, on top of it, where

THANKS

ok people it is not as hard as you are making it sound all that you have to do is go beside the stormtrooper pod and to the left of that is a little hole with some water coming out of it go right up against the wall and croutch so that you go under water when you do go to a place where you will find a secret area and all that you have to do is look and you should see where you have to jump and then thats when the level is very long but just wait because it is worth it when you get to ride

lol that's what i have ( geforce 2) and i had to turn it all down. There are loads of planst swinging around later in the level too, which dont help.


As for the waterfall, it is a 3d image, not a pretty pattern on the wall. Also it's transparent (no foam) and about twice Kyle's height when he's right below it. There is only one so if you think you see it then try it out.

What is that waterfall anyway? I got past it fine, but man, I swear it's like a drainage pipe, not a waterfall! ATST part afterwards is dam fun though! Although there's a lot of guys if you go atst part.

This part was almost as hard as the city level where u had to get on the garbage tram. i had to noclip over to it. someone tell me how to get on the dang thang for real.

Oh yeah heres a solution to the framerate slow down. get 1024MB of Ram and stir with a GeForce 3 64MB. Pour on 1.6 Ghz processer and u can run the swamp level on the normal video settings.

If you want to have more fun with the atst (chicken walker), then go back to the bespin streets level where u were on the streets of cloud city. Then spawn ALOT of tavions, reborns, or desanns.(to run over desann with walker u need to have a smaller character in fron of him). Then use the drive_atst code. its fun to run over tavions and listen to her cry of pain.

I just got to Yavin and read this thread and I was surprised that systems faster than mine are turned down to low settings.

my comp specs: Duron @1Ghz
384 Mb SD-RAM
TNT-2 M64 Pro vid card

I'm running the game on high quality and I don't have a problem with the fps for the swamp level.

All you have to do is jump on top of it and then press your use key. I hope this helps you out.

Ok, so I've read all of this and I still can;t find it. Where is the 2nd pod. Is it near that big structure which has half collapsed with the single stormtrooper in it. or do you have to jump somewhere. I have looked at so may walls that could be waterfalls, but still can;t find it.


HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
