After all this time I finally picked up the X Superbox in the Steam summer sale this weekend. I got it downloaded just spent 4hrs so far playing the Humble Merchant and watching Intro videos... very beautiful and addicting.

I feel the same sense of wonder and possibilities that I felt the first time I played Elite.

Looking forward to trying some of these mods, hopefully they work with the Steam version which added some steam achievements.

I really need some help with this game. I bought X3:Terran Conflict, and I'm absolutely borderline on deleting it, or keep trying.

Every time I think I figure it out, the game just craps on me with bad design, crappy tutorials, etc.

My current issue is the 3rd mission of the campaign. It gives me a wing of craft to command, but absolutely no word on how to use them at all!? Any help?

I haven't gotten that far in X:TC but the following tutorial videos in this series have been useful for me so far, maybe in the later videos it describes what you are looking for?

Definately checked those out. I wouldn't have given the game more than 10 minutes if it werent for those vids. But unfortunately they don't cover the wings, system from what I've perused. Makes me think I aught to give up combat and just go trading.

just got TC & AP,


just spent a bit getting use to the controls and blowing things up, I decided to play AP first as I quite like the idea of a big war going on...

my only question is regarding starting out, whats the difference between the Argons and Terrans? I might need to read some lore quickly to help me decide biggrin

also what are the argons and terrans fighting over?

Play TC first - there are more plots and they are longer and much more involved. I'm currently playing through AP and even with the new plots in the latest patch, the story in TC is much better.

I have to admit to being slightly disappointed with AP, but since it is technically an addon to TC I can't really complain.

Wanted to give this thread some love.

I am glad someone brought up CdrDave's vids. His tutorials on youtube are great. Before I even started playing, I watched the first 5 or so videos, just so I knew what to do in-game.

I am also someone brought yp X3 for Dummies. it is a great resource.

I haven't played too much yet. I started as a humble merchant. I now remotely control my freighter, my original T5, and I bought a small, light, agile M5 to explore and kill some pirates driving
