      Default New horizon's plots

      i would like some information about the plots of NH.

      after reading most faqs and the user-guide , i am still confused.
      the user-guide states that NH has its own plots and that the different custom starts have slightly different maps.

      if i start with the humble merchant from x3 vanilla will i have no acces to any of the new plots?
      i tried the janus and goner start but there was no sign of a story starting.

      ive been very attentive to the bbs boards ingame but the only NH message i get is the one stating the existence of the spectre race.

      if possible ,could anyone send me a private message to where i can start the plots? just the start nothing else.

      Welcome to the forum streak lightning

      Different maps:

      Maps are slightly different than the regular one for the following Custom starts:
      • Janus
      • Pirate
      • Solo
      There are few additions, like 2 specific models of Pirate ships, and jumpdrive available in one particular SY. This is to give you a chance to fly some great ships that you have no chance to buy if you are Pirate, as the Race which owns them will not let you buy.


      NH Plots:

      There are two kind of plots in NH:
      1. "Active" plot, designed by Azz, in which you have to receive a specific message and follow instructions - Fasten your seat belt!...
      2. "Passive" plots, in which you get clues from BBS. These hints will help you to find a brand new race, and also find secret sectors in which many things can happen, and in which there are nice and helpful items to find.
      Hope this helps.
      .

      thanks for the welcome and for clearing up the differences between the starts. ^-^

      while waiting for a reply i stumbled upon some french forums saying something about a ship calling you when u enter a certain sector..
      after reading that i remembered something happening like that when i started but declined it since "danger"+"buster" = no no T.T (it happened just as i started and was exploring a bit)

      please tell me i'm not screwed and that i declined the entire plot =/
      can i retrigger that event ? (tried goin back to the sector and nothing happened)

      Have a try to fly in Janus' sectors and see what will happen.

      Might not be a good idea to do that with a Buster though!

      If you are able to Thanks or/and to give Rep, that's fine!

      Regarding your question, you might find useful to read more carefully the NH introductory post.

      as much as i hate it .. i got 1 more question , it's the last one i promise!
      ok i got the mech mothership in my possesion but it still hates me..

      evry time i try to fill up the empty weapon slots the ship uninstalls them automaticly..

      for example i put a weapon in an empty slot on the back of the ship ,game tells me its installed and i can also see it on the ship then 5-10 seconds later the weapon goes back to the ships freight bay.

      it happens evry time no matter what slot i put a weapon in , the only weapons that stay on are the ones that were installed from the start.

      i bet its some stupidity on my part but ive never had something like this happen before .i dont have a clue about what's causing it, i hope you do =]

      Just set command for turrets to "none" in your turrets settings. After this, you should be able to mount your weapons.

      I know this thread is getting some age on it, but I was hoping for some help. I've only found three Janus sectors. Are there more? I've been flying around looking for the active plot mentioned but no luck. Is there a different download or something else I have to do?

      Thanks in advance!
