Been away for a while and expected to see 2.0 there for download. We all want to see it in the download section, but until they fix all those game stopping bugs or nuisances, all we can do is wait and hope.
Giving us an ETA is pointless when you cannot know for sure how long it will gonna take to fix this or that and who knows, maybe another bug will emerge once you fix this or that.
Also, keep in mind they are not getting paid to do this, even so they sacrifice their free time to deliver us something awesome and as bug free as possible and the download is free.
My point is: Have patience and have faith, great things come to those who are patient... :)

Hiya Peeps, :wave:

stompy.... Hey stomp, good to see ya back here again! O0

We (by "We" I'm referring to the guys actually working on the Mod, rather then lazy good for nothings such as myself... :rofl:) are hoping to get it out sometime in the next few weeks... Note: I can't give you guys any proper timetable as to the actual release date of this mod as I have nothing to do with the mod...

It's currently undergoing closed/in-house Beta-Testing as we speak, where they're trying to iron out any major game breaking bugs they find.. no doubt there may be the odd minor bug that crops up once the mod's released, but that's normally squashed fairly fast once the guys get their mitts on it.... ;)

Cheers & Thranx

Hell Yeah!!!

That's some enticing info man, no need for a timetable because we all know the drill by now but hearing the team has good hopes of releasing 2.0 makes me smile :)

are u guys going to play nice and give us some hints on what we are going to get as goodies in 2.0 or are you going to make us wait for everything, i dont mind the wait but a screeny once in a while of some of your great work would make it more enjoyable after all its the tease that makes the difference from a girl taking of her clothes and a fun spectator sport :rolleyes:

I`m more interested in the new starts 2.0 has to offer.
I remember accidentally(under the influence of too many beers) opening a file in XTC (cannot remember which) and seeing some other starts(disabled) besides the ones we have in 1.2.
I remember reading about Pirate starts, Xenon and others(with m3, m6 starting ships etc.)
If my interpretation of that file is correct, then 2.0 will really, really keep me interested.

the four horsemen? Isn't that Manger, NC, trooper and myself (aka spam, spam, spam and death, where spam = famine, pestilence and war all in 1)

I've been waiting for 2.0 for a while, can't wait to see just what magic they've achieved, to me 1.2 was more of a teaser compared to what is to come

I'm going to make a prediction on the release for 2.0 ... Christmas!

It will be out this Xmas, how do I know?



Because I've asked Santa for 2.0 and he hasn't let me down once...

That will only work if Santa sends over half a dozen elves to the project to magically fix any bugs that might pop up.

E.mergency L.abor F.rom S.anta.

How ever if LOTR unexpected journey Comes out first guys might get lost playing stuff like that and other toys till they remember to keep testing and making xtc. Lol.

Hey I have an idea!!!! How about a v.1.3 out now???? :p:lol::grin:

mtoomb
10-09-2012, 04:25 PM
I'm not holding my breath. I stand in awe of the team and the xtc crew, but it's been a few weeks for well over two years now... So yeah, my prediction- Christmas will come and go and neither XTC or Rebirth will see the light of day (if they ever really do). It's a cunning plan really to release 1.2 build and then watch to see how long people squirm. Only problem is you guy will have to change your name to Rockstar Games. :)

But seriously... I'm tired of paying for Eve Online, I need a space-combat-fix man... give me that good 2.0 dope and I'll mainline it straight into my neck! I'll sell my kids! I'll throw 2.0 in a suitcase, toss it in the trunk, and drive for the Mexican border as fast as I can!

Funny you should say this... see at the time I though it was the alcohol but now... I might as well share... Santa came to me after a long Don Julio session two nights ago and said that I should pass on the message to AS and the XTC team members that if they have 2.0 out by Xmas he would make them VERY happy... I said what kind of happy and he said let's just say for example that this is the only chance Mangarwill ever have of being nekid with Bar Rafaeli...

Needless to say I havent tuched the stuff since...

AS and team a bit early I know but what about a little note with tidbits from the virtual office? How is the bug hunting going? Are you keeping all shield types? Is the balance looking good.

Also how about a sneak preview of the "new" TP+ luxury yachts? Do they have any serious armament up front in this versions or ar they still the "HEPT Battleships" like in 1.2r? Can you divulge anything about the ways you have chosen to differentiate between them?

Has there been any adverse or benefecial influence on your schedule since the last update? (the one about developement issues not the one about your adventures with the ummm female police person)

Standard procedure of maany player in TC: Find M3 xyz Prototype, then get marines, find and board Hyperion, fly that till the end of days. In the future (2.0) you are presented with alot of choices instead of 1 uber ship that beats em all. With all those new models it would be stupid to do the Hyperion thing. I said "no firepower as M6", but that doesn't mean that they will not change in 2.0

To be honest in TC Springblossom did it for me not Hyp. but that doesnt change the fact that it was all I ever flew in X3:R (with LX under the wing). In any event I agree balance wise... my comment was of a sentimental nature...

Something like ``hey today we discovered a bug that crashes/freezes the game, working on a fix as we speak, or as:cry: ludicer mentioned, some eye candy from time to time to give us hope.
We`re not growing impatient or anything (cough) and I`m pretty sure this has been debated in previous posts, but what I`m trying to say is: Give a guy something! Be honest or just lie to me but give me something to hang on too T_T

"or alternatively dont worry about wasting time giving out information to the impatient and concentrate on giving us a bug free game at no cost to any of us " Impatient?! Chiggidy-check yourself before you wreck yourself there bub. The people on this forum are THE most patient people I have EVER SEEN on the internet. They are respectful, courteous, and VERY patient in their posts, replies, and attitudes. I don't know if you've ever visited other forums where trolls lurk in shadows waiting for the slightest splash in their little end of the big pond. Those kind of people would be all over this forum , mocking people for their techniques, understandings, and grip on the English language. You'd see all kinds of posts about "Jesus, we realize you're not getting paid to do this, but step it up a little... We'd like to play 2.0 sometime before the planets align and the darkness creeps across the land. Or at least before X: Rebirth comes out." But no, instead you get "Hey guys, I know you're working hard and have exams and stuff... But we'd all sure appreciate a little info, you know, when you get around to it, no biggie...."

You're not giving the people on this forum enough credit, so I'm trolling you. LOL. Anyway, love the game, keep up the good work, and let's all hope we see 2.0 in 2012!

It doesnt take more then 5 minutes to save a screenshot and or post a quick update on the forums.

Just sayan.

Nemoricus
06-10-2012, 04:41 PM
It takes considerably more than five minutes, since you have to first make sure that you have a good picture, possibly discuss with the rest of the team about whether it's one you should release, and maybe do some cropping and such to get it ready for public display. Of course, if you don't have a good picture on hand, it could take much longer to make one.

A good text update also has the 'Is this something we want to talk about right now?' aspect to it.

So, while I'd appreciate more updates myself, making them does take away from time they can spend working on XTC into what will surely be the finest mod X3:TC will ever see.

I've been lurking as quest on those forums for a long time and i want to say two things:

1. X3TC is amazing game especially with all those patches
2. XTC mod is simply amazing in my opinion. What struck me the most was this space porn with every sector.
I mean almost every sector is wallpaper worthy and i have as wallpaper one of screenshots.

I can't wait for 2.0 version ! Keep up good work.

I haven't heard anything about X:Reunion in six months either - But you guys should totally show up the Egosoft team and get 2.0 out first. =)
