VR Spaceship

The Lab

Dan
So, you defeated the Barba Ray! Good work! The teleporter is set for the next VR field. It is ready to take you to the starting point of Spaceship area Alpha. Good luck!
The difficulty level for the Spaceship field is much higher. Please be careful!
Woman at gate
Looks like you're doing pretty well! The Chief was very pleased with your performance! Her assistant, Dan, didn't look happy, but... Don't worry about it, he's just jealous! Good luck on the next round!
Natasha
Impressive... We will see how you will do in the next VR field. Good luck.
Researcher
Designing the Temple field was really fun! We got to be really creative in the process. But the Spaceship field may be a bit too difficult for you. It was built for real combat training.

Pioneer 2 city

Man in Hunter's Guild
But, I must admit... It might've been a mistake to build a Guild Counter in an area with so many government facilities. People in the government don't trust the hunters so much... Truth is, we haven't gotten too many jobs lately... It might've been better if we built these in the residential areas... Oh, well...
Guard at Lab door
The Administration seems to be really busy these days. I heard that they organized some of the hunters to form a investigation team again. I wonder what good this will do. They can't even collect analyzed information without the Lab.
Man
I work in machine delivery. So I get to go into a lot of facilities. The Administration, The military, and the Lab... I wonder why they never get along? One day, I delivered a brand new VR device from the Lab to the military... They refused it, so I ended up having to take it right back to the Lab! If they would just learn to get along with one another, then I'm sure we'd find the answers to what happened on Ragol much quicker.
Woman
Around here, many people work for the government or the research facility. I help out at the Lab once in a while, too. We still haven't heard from our relatives on Pioneer 1. It gets very lonely just living with my sister. I wonder what happened to the people on Pioneer 1... Even with the involvement of all the hunters, there still haven't been any official announcements.
Girl
Ta la la... What's an Administration? Grown-ups are always complaining that the Administration can't do anything right. Ta la la...

VR Spaceship area Alpha

Access the Cal terminal to speak to Elly.

Cal
Transmission from the VR test field, Spaceship area Alpha... Accessing... Hunter [NAME]...
Elly
... [NAME]! This is the lab. Elly here. Contacting from Spaceship area Alpha. You're finally at the second field of the hunter's exam. After you clear this field, the hunter's exam will be done. So do your best! And good luck!

When you access a Cal terminal after speaking to Elly, you'll see the following.

Cal
Transmission from the VR test field, Spaceship area Alpha... Accessing... Hunter [NAME]... *... Hi! This is the lab. Please choose the information you would like to retrieve.

Through the Enemy data menu you can ask Elly about the monsters.

Gillchic
Let's see, Gillchic... "Gillchic, Mobile security machine used by Pioneer 1." "Its AI shows damage from a viral infection linked to Ragol's tunnels." "They move in groups. "Watch out for its long-range laser attack."
Savage Wolf
And, next, Savage Wolf. "Savage Wolf, native creature, lives on the surface of Ragol." "Travels in packs with an alpha leading the pack." "By killing the alpha, you can demoralize the pack." The alpha can be recognized by its color. It has a blue decoration. We call the alpha a "Barbarous Wolf." You should always try to attack the alpha first. They you'll have an easier time against the remaining pack.
Pan Arms
Let's see, Pan Arms. "Pan Arms. Mutant lifeform. Classified as an Altered Beast." "Subterranean creature with tough exoskeleton. Splits into two..." Unique creatures!! Guess that's the best time to attack one. Wait, there's something written here... "Evolution pattern updated." ...? I wonder what the heck this means?
Delsaber
OK, Delsaber. "Delsaber. D-Cellular Sub Lifeform." "Highly intelligent. Its arms are capable of attacking and defending." Hmm... "When a Delsaber decides on its prey, it shows a signle-minded mentality." ! Guess this means that this creature is rather obsessive. Reminds me of an ex-boyfriend. I guess you have to be extra careful if you're the target. Man, this gives me the creeps.
Garanz
And next, Garanz. "Garanz. Assault machine used by the military of Pioneer 1." "Its AI shows damage from a viral infection lined to Ragol's tunnels." "The Garanz is equipped with plated armor, and has guided missiles." Hmm... This machine may look cool to most people, but I think it looks dumb. I prefer the smart, sleek looking designs. They're more efficient. Let's see... Looks like it contains the latest military data.

Through the Field data menu you can ask Elly about the field.

Data 1
Some doors may require more than one person to open them. Keep this in mind when you're working with other hunters.
Data 2
Depending on where you stand, some areas will give you a better view. Look carefully in the far distance... All you see is a nice view? Ha ha ha. You might find a switch for the hall in the next room. It's worth a try.
Data 3
Pay extra attention when entering a room with no light. Why? Because you won't be able to see any monsters sneaking up on you. And when you're surrounded, it's too late. And whack whack. Bye bye. But there should be a light switch somewhere. You can always come back to the room later on. If you're lucky, you can find a light switch in the room next door. There's a fine line between being brave and being stupid.
Data 4
It's pretty hard to spot traps. You'll know when you find one, though. They activate and pop out of the ground when you get too close. It makes it dangerous to just wander around. Oh, but... With Trap Vision, you'll be able to spot traps. And androids have Trap Vision built into them! It's an amazing function!

Access the second Cal terminal to speak to Elly.

Cal
Transmission from the VR test field, Spaceship area Alpha... Accessing, Hunter [NAME]...
Elly
... [NAME]! This is the lab. Hello. This is Elly. How are you doing? This area is totally different from the Temple. You'll face many berserk robots in the Spaceship area. These malfunctioning robots were once Pioneer 1's automated work force. They were supposed to build a colony for us on Ragol. Now they're out of control. They attack anything that moves. They still seem to have some intelligence, since they attack as a group. I think the robots look kind of cute though, don't you? ... You don't think I'm crazy, do you?

VR Spaceship area Beta

Access the Cal terminal to speak to Elly.

Cal
Transmission from the VR test field, Spaceship area Beta... Accessing... Hunter [NAME]...
Elly
VR test field Spaceship area Alpha completion confirmed. VR field Spaceship area Beta setup completed. Ready for the next area? [NAME]! Be careful!

When you access a Cal terminal after speaking to Elly, you'll see the following.

Cal
Transmission from the VR test field, Spaceship area Beta... Accessing... Hunter [NAME]... *... Hi! This is the lab. Please choose the information you would like to retrieve.

More entries are now available in the Enemy data menu.

Dubchic
Okay, Dubchic... "Dubchic. Stationary security machine used by Pioneer 1." "Its AI shows damage from a viral infection linked to Ragol's tunnels." "Like the Gillchic, they travel in groups, but ..." "Since a remote terminal controls the Dubchic AI, it's hard to destroy." "Destroying the remote terminal will cause the robots to self-destruct." If you just attack the Gillchics, they'll just reassemble themselves. Please be careful.
Chaos Sorcerer
OK, Chaos Sorcerer. "Chaos Sorcerer. D-Cellular Sub Lifeform." "Highly intelligent, its movement seems to have a technique-like quality. "The Chaos Sorcerer's crystals allow it to attack or heal." You know what that means, right? You'd better focus on targetting one crystal when you attack. It'll be easier for you to defeat it this way.

More entries are now available in the Field data menu.

Data 5
Have you ever heard of a trap that literally stops you in your tracks? It's a dangerous trap if you're all alone. You can't move at all. If you're with someone, they can help you out.
Data 6
There are lots of types of traps set in the field. The really sophisticated ones react to motion and attack immediately. These nasty surprises are called Pillars. Pioneer 1 set up these security devices to protect themselves. Now, they're just traps that'll attack anything until they're destroyed. I would highly recommend destroying any that you encounter on Ragol.
Data 7
There is a particularly nasty trap that sprays a lethal toxin. If you aren't careful, it will suck away all your health! For these types of traps, there should be an off switch nearby.
Data 8
Be wary of the paths between rooms. They may seem safe at first, but you can be caught off guard if you aren't careful enough. So don't be fooled by those paths. So remember, be alert!

Access the second Cal terminal to speak to Elly.

Cal
Transmission from the VR test field, Spaceship area Beta... Accessing... Hunter [NAME]...
Elly
... [NAME]! This is the lab. Hi. This is Elly speaking. How are you doing? Just a little more to go, and you'll finish the hunter's exam. The lab's information analysis for the new point is proceeding well. We've finally been able to track the coordinates that were sent out. And we've found some large-scale installation. I'm worried because it means that things could be even more dangerous. ... Oops. I shouldn't be talking about this. I'll get reprimanded again. Oh, well... Anyway, I'm sure you're bored with my chatting. You only have a little more to go, so go for it!

Access the third Cal terminal to speak to Elly.

Cal
Transmission from the VR test field, Spaceship area Beta... Accessing... Hunter [NAME]...
Elly
... [NAME]! This is the lab. Hi. Elly again. How are you doing? This is the final Spaceship area. You're finally here. Well, according to the set data... What? ... Come on! Oh, sorry. I can't load the database. This is just a guess, but... I think someone in management has been messing with the data. I'll check it later. ... It's not like I'm breaking any rules! I wish they'd just leave me alone. Anyway! [NAME], you'll be just fine. I'll be cheering you on from here.

VR Spaceship Final

Defeat Gol Dragon, and a Cal terminal will appear on the field. Access it to speak to Elly.

Cal
VR test field... Transmission from the final Spaceship area... Hunter [NAME]...
Elly
VR field Final Spaceship area cleared... Good job, [NAME]! All VR tests for the Spaceship area have been completed. Both the Temple and Spaceship areas are cleared. This means... This is the end of the hunter's exam! [NAME], the chief wishes to speak to you directly in the lab. The link will be disconnected. Please enter the teleporter.

When you access the Cal terminal after speaking to Elly, you'll see the following.

Cal
VR test field... Transmission from the final Spaceship area... Hunter [NAME]... *... Hi! This is the lab. Please choose the information you would like to retrieve.

One more entry is now available in the Enemy data menu.

Gol Dragon
Let's see. According to the data... "We have determined that 'Dragons' exist on Ragol. They live underground." Back home, dragons only show up in myths and stories... I can't believe such a creature actually exists on Ragol! I guess I'll continue. Ahem... "We've inputted Dragon data into our evolutionary simulator." "Amazingly enough, it may evolve into what we called a Gol Dragon." But the Gol Dragon is just a legend. That's what it says. [NAME], you might know this already, but... The Gol Dragon legend originated on the home world of Coral. That this VR system recreated something that was just a legend... Can you imagine the sheer processing power you need for that? ... Ha ha ha. ... Oh! Never mind. Forget about it. Really, it's nothing. Just forget about what I just said.

One more entry is now available in the Field data menu.

Data 9
The Spaceship area is actually a simulation of a section on Pioneer 2. This section, or block, was designed by the military. The design itself is very old. Let's see... Most of the cargo in this area is weaponry of some sort. The military trained here for possible attacks during our voyage. Luckily, we've never had to apply any of those skills. I can't believe everything that's happened on the surface! Sorry... It's too late to talk about it now. We are counting on you, [NAME]. Our hopes are with you. Good luck!
