A joystick should improve the immersion factor but you don't need it. I don't have one and I fly Black Shark just fine. biggrin

So if I can fly reasonably well in Freelancer, I can also do well flying with a mouse in X3?

I have been flying entirely using mouse and keyboard and find it works quite well.

Thanks. smile
Now my task of resisting the desire to purchase it until I have more money just got harder. Of course, it's only 11 at Gamersgate, which isn't much...

You'll do reasonably well once you've figured out what to do. It's basically a steer and wait, a while, before you arrive at your destination. It's outer space so not much in your way. No take offs and landings, no trimming and I don't think gravity is modeled at all.

That's even cheaper than steam. Go for it if you have any interest in space and exploration.

It's WELL worth 11 bucks.

I had trouble getting started, had a couple failed attempts. It is really big in what you can do. I found a good guide that helped me get going using the 'Humble Trader' start.

Let us know if you get it and have any questions!

IF you end up enjoying it, you've got a years' worth of gaming before you, easy. It's kinda like Oblivion Elder Scrolls, but from the POV of a spaceship.

I tried to get it, but Gamersgate, or rather whatever the payment company is, took my money and didn't give me the game. Sigh.

I've actually played x3 Reunion before, so am looking forwards to finally getting it. Hopefully the support ticket I sent off gets answered promptly, and the issue gets resolved.

Got it!

Now to download a big bunch of mods, and explore!

Ooohh... Gamersgate (US site) is selling X3 TC for US$14.95 - much cheaper than the US$19.99 price on Steam. Works out to less than S$20 in my currency. Considering some of the more popular boxed games retail at S$50 - S$70 on release, it's a steal.
Question is (looking nervously at Flying Toaster's post above) can they be trusted?
Sorely tempted to buy, but I've got Planescape Torment, Fallout 1 & 2 lined up to play on my comp, and I've yet to finish Mass Effect 2... There's no time to play all these great games!! mad frown

I'd say there's no problems with gamersgate - it was just me having stupid internet that times out at the wrong times, and I tried to use my Australian credit card, which raised red flags that took a while to sort out.

One word of caution - be careful with mods. I managed to make my game unplayable. Some mod stuck a station in Argon Prime that was essentially an expanded trade station, but nothing could dock to it. After a while there was a massive swarm of ships (including my sole auto-trader) around it, all trying to dock. So now I need to reinstall everything. Sigh.

OK I have put it off for a couple of years now and I just might have to break down and get these games. They look great and honestly look like a fun diversion from reality.

I hadn't played it for a month or so, started playing again earlier this week after talking with some guys at work about it.

Haven't got to bed before 1:30AM all week...

Great game.

You will get frustrated getting started, just post here for some help.

Cheers!

Link to a trailer vid of Xtended, arguably the best X3 mod ever made. Almost out for X3TC.

very cool. thanks for the heads up. looks like there's a more complete/feature rich version (v2) due in about 6 months, but that it won't be save game compatible with v1.

I might be a bit late..... but I was able to use the Warthog using one of the profiles that came with Target.... I think it was Falcon or F18??? Which ever makes it 1 controller worked.

thanks for the info.

I will have to read up on X3 reunion to see if I may want to play it.


haha took me a while to get off my arse and buy a computer that could run X3 Gold.

OK, a couple of more questions for the X-series knowledgeable folks...
X3 Terran Conflict has all the patches to go from v1.01 up to v2.6,v2.7 or v3.0 any of which will remove the DRM from the game as stated above.
However, I do not see any patches or info on the X3 Gold Reunion download. I assume this game being a bit older already has the DRM removed as it sold now?

thanks!

Is the soundtrack any good? I will download it and give it a listen! smile
