Good question about the mods, it seems like there are an overwhelming amount. Page 7 of this thread has a couple people stating what they are using.

If people don't mind, could they post the mods they like/use?

Just the other night I finally started playing this. Got about 3 hours in last night, starting to get used to the basics.

So far, 'Apricot's Guide', and Fire Fish's Guide are good resources so far.

Is there still the cockpit mod and if so how does it look. I used in the past but wonder if they might looked outdated

There are two cockpit mods out there but I don't use them b/c they use X2 graphics, which look too outdated to me. Overall though, they are pretty cool. You can find them in the scripts and modding forum on egosoft.

I am having trouble getting my gamepad working properly with the game.

It is a Saitek p3200 (http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/saitek_p3200/images/1.htm)

The primary joystick is working, but the left joystick isn't recognized in game. I would like to configure it for my strafing thrusters.

All the controls show properly and work in the windows control panel (Win 7).

Any ideas/suggestions? I couldn't find any good info on troubleshooting this.

Cheers!

Don't need the info on fixing the gamepad now, I am totally used to using the keyboard and mouse (just playing on my laptop).

I am totally addicted to this game.

Found a good guide on the Steam forums, X3 For Dummies

I was playing for a while, but just restarted, selling the scout ship, and just flying around in my transport making profitsss smile

Must buys for trading are the trading extension, best buy and best selling locators. Once you have those items, you can easily buy and sell in a sector just by pressing the 5 or 6 key, then selecting the best deal, and directly buying or selling.

This is such a good game, and I haven't gotten into combat yet even....

It's a great game, no doubt. And it's also one of the prettiest looking games I've ever seen.

Quick question.

I am just doing some trading to try to build up my bank account.

Using the 'best buys' upgrade, I saw some dragonfly missiles for a good price and bought them all up. Now I can't find where to sell them.

Am I stuck with them and should I just give them to my ships to use in battle??

It seems slow going as well getting cash. I was doing ok getting up to about 200-300K, mostly trading energy cells and ore. I am thinking I should be starting to trade other items, but not sure what good stuff is. I have moved into the Teladi space, looking at the economy there...

Any suggestions for me?

Cheers!

I've just started playing Reunion as opposed to TC, so I don't know if the following applies (especially given the random seed involved in the game), so here goes:

Yep, you're stuck with the missiles. Load a game from before you did that.
In my evolution of the game, trading energy cells from Power Circle to anything in Argon Prime is fairly lucrative; Combining this with occasional ore and silicon wafer runs makes it a pretty solid earner.
Power from Queens Space to Kingdom End is also quite good.
If you're still using the M4 class ship that you get at the start and you're using a vanilla starting point (Argon race, M4 Buster ship) then trading space fuel from Herron's Nebula to the local trading station is VERY lucrative. If you get scanned, reload. If it runs out of resources, explore and support it.

I started out doing pretty much the above; space fuel got me enough cash for my first freighter, and casual power/ore/silicon runs around the Argon system got me the rest.

Thanks!

I will reload an older save.

I think I will have to try the 'illegal' route for a bit. I still have the default Mercury with only 3000 units of cargo. I will go and start filling it up with some space fuel wink

Cheers!

Just a word of advice- for those new to this series, I strongly suggest playing x3:terran conflict instead of x3: reunion. It's FAR MORE user friendly, but not dumbed down.

PG,
I was about to ask whether I should get X3:R in addition to X3:TC. Should I just buy the latter, as it seems it will give many hour of gameplay? What will I miss if I forgo X3:R, or indeed some of the earlier games in the series?
Reason I'm asking is that X3 Gold is retailing for about $30 on Steam.

The Super Box is a good deal, but I don't think there's time for more than one game unfortunately...

Quick question - is this game playable with mouse and keyboard, or does it need a joystick?
