      I will see what develops and add a suitable link.

      Very True... a subforum is a good idea... with 1 Sticky locked thread with a list of scripts and links, like the way I broke it down for 1.2.
      Then any new script / mod that needs fixes to make it work willl have it's own thread and the main list stays clean.

      One possibility would be to make use of the existing "user created scripts and mods" subforum - create a thread there for "XTC 2 compatibility" and get it stickied. Would save creating yet another subforum, and the risk of scattering relevent content in too many places.

      Incidentally, I was wondering why there wasn't already a FAQ thread here, then discovered it's in the Wiki here (unfortunately not updated since 1.x).

      The two should probably be merged in due course.

      Q6. It's too hard (or too easy) - how do I change the difficulty?

      Long version :
      A. In order to change the difficulty of the game you must first assign a hotkey to either the "Ship Computer Interface" or "XTC Configuration Menu". The difficulty settings can be changed by accessing the configuration menu directly or going through the ship computer interface. Once you are in the configuration menu select the "Change Difficulty" option, from there you can select the presets easy/normal/hard or customize the difficulty yourself. Please note that certain changes to the difficulty of your game are not immediate and might take a little bit to take effect.

      Short version :

      Hope thats good enough, change what you feel like changing
      I had an even longer version but that was just too long and was meant to the newbies, a step by step tutorial of sorts lol ...

      Yes.

      In a subsequent exchange of messages with Stemardue, we ageed to leave it for a couple of days before stickying. That's now elapsed, and although not finished I think it's in good enough shape to be put up in public view.

      The FAQ is now sticky-ed (eww what a terrible term ^^ but... would you prefer 'stuck'? )

      Keep up with the good job - this is the right spirit of the forum.

      Could you change the thread title please? I would suggest classification be "Guide", and title be "XTC 2.0 FAQ" ( or something similar), as it's now an established thread rather than an idea/proposal.

      I will tidy up the wording in the initial post to reflect the change of status.

      Merging it with the existing FAQ can come later - I'd like to see this one evolve a bit further first, as I'm sure there will be a few more questions repeated often enough to qualify for inclusion.

      Loriel consider me a collaborator to this FAQ (if you'd like ofcourse). I will keep my eyes open for any questions that might be worth adding here and then inform you of them so you can decide upon adding them or not.
      I used to make such threads in other forums or step by step guides to do certain things but i havent thought of doing this here Good thing you did it!

      EDIT : For question 10 you can add this link as an unofficial compatibility list/discussion thread for XTC 2.0 if links to Egosoft forums are allowed. People are testing scripts with XTC 2.0 and reporting if they work or not. I've been using some of the scripts from that post myself and so far no issues. I think its worth posting this link here aswell until some better thread will appear here on these forums ...

      Yes, I already do - thanks.

      I am hoping that the compatibility discussions here get organised soon. I would prefer them to be grouped in a subforum, rather than a single thread as seen on Egosoft, and seen for the 1.2 Compatibility thread here, where the thread can grow too long to be conveniently handled.

      It's probably worth getting the current discussions listed in the FAQ, as you suggest, so I hope to do that shortly. That can be updated later if the situation here changes.
