    FIRST LOOK : X3 Reunion

    Having just revelaed a few details on X3, the latest in the X series of space combat/trading sims, Egosoft have released a load of details and some truly gorgeous screens.

    Unveiling some of the key aspects to the game, which they hope will define X³ as a 'bench mark' in the space combat/trading genre, Egosoft have also announced that X3 is set for launch quarter three 2005 on PC CDROM and on an as yet undisclosed console. This version is estimated at a quarter four release. Both versions will be released in Europe by publisher DEEP SILVER.
    Have a look at this for a great screenshot and then check out the full story here.

    Looks amazing - let's hope they will provide a proper interface in X3 this time.

    OK, call me a noob, but I got X2: The Thread with my XFX 6800GT. I installed it, tried the tutorial, but quickly got exceptionally bored.

    Somebody please "sell it to me" as I seem to be missing the point of the thing.

    Kez - this is probably one of the hardest games to get into. In fact I would say impossible without a bit of help. However, it is worth it as it's the best space sim since elite.

    1. Register here.

    2. Register your X2 copy here

    3. Download Patch 1.4 and the All in one bonus pack from the same site.

    This allows all the upgrades and additional scripting to be applied that will make running factories etc easier.

    Also you can get all the info you need to help you out on that forum. It's very extensive. e.g.

    Ultimate Guide to Everything IN x2

    Key Commands

    X2 Map - Spoiler

    To start just explore and look for hidden containers inside space stations. "O" opens cargo bay to collect. Do mission 1 and keep exploring and looking for secret containers. Sell the contents of the containers to make money. Upgrade ship. At the start you are too small to take on most ships only mandalays or bayamons unless you have experience. Ship capture guide should be in Ultimate guide to everything.

    If you want further info PM me with your email addy and I'll send you all the useful stuff I've downloaded like - All ship/weapons/map info. Tips on how to start. Best places to build your factories using Sector Planner. etc

    It's very cool when you earn enough money to buy a Capital ship, fill it with 100 fighters, equip those fighters from your own factories -fill those fighters with drones then (hyperdrive) jump into an enemy sector along with a patrol of 5 corvettes and destroy everything insight.
