new 2.6 patch out now, and an official bonus content patch. the x series is the best supported series of games in history, most likely. egosoft are a superb group of developers.

I'll second the buy. it.

Great game and great developer. This was supposed to be the last of the X universe games, I wonder what's next for egosoft.

i've been contemplating this one for a while.

they've got terran conflict for 9.99 and gold for 14.99, what's does the gold/reunion thing add?

i'd skip gold/reunion b/c they are earlier games. x3:tc is the pinnacle of the series.

I've got X2 and X3 Reunion, but can't say I ever got far into them. X3:R was just a mangled mess of menus that simply got old. What's new with the latest X3?
These are on my list of "Games I'd most LIKE to get into but can't."

The menu system is a lot smoother with TC, they improved the entire UI a lot. The game is no less complex though.

x3:tc is MUCH friendler and more accessible to the player, especially in the UI. i think egosoft kinda grew to agree with your compliant about the menus, krypto.

I started my adventure in the X universe with X2 The Threat. Was hard at the beginning to start running my own empire, but once I got into it it went nicely;) It gives the player enormous freedom. If you wanna go with the plot beware that X3 Terran Conflict is the final chapter. But you do not need to know what was the story before that. I recently played a bit of Reunion and yes, menus are waaaay better organised in TC;)

To make long story short - go and get it;) As was mentioned before - best developer in space sim games genre. Usually they release games with some minor and major bugs but they are always fixed and many new features and improvements introduced with time. Just look at X3 - it went from 1.0 to 2.5 Bala Gi missions, X3 TC from 1.0 to 2.6 with Aldrin Missions and New Home. Amazing;)

Now Egosoft is working on The Next Big Thing, as they called it in the last news article. Makes me curious...;)

have fun;)

I have been enjoying X3-TC off and on for the last month. My gaming is limited by job and travel demands, so I would say I get about 5-6 hours in a week. I started in the humble trader campaign and at this point, I have a little "space-semi" truck that I am cruising around in, making small deals. Love the visuals and the premise and have come to at least understand the menus, but slow going so far getting any kind of real cash flow. Good game and a steal for 10 bucks!

Cool,

I bought it last night actually, couldn't wait smile

I saw a link to a good game guide one time, but can't find it now, does someone have it?

It was a compilation of several game guides into a single PDF.

Cheers!

Besides the complexity and attention to detail - it is simply beautiful to behold.

it gets even prettier once you download higher-res backgrounds and get rid of the annoying fog effect

Thanks for the info Eugene, and others. I just found the older X3 thread here, and it looks like there is some good info there.

Cheers!

I picked the game up too. I always wanted to play the X series but never had the time or energy to. I might just have that now though.
