      Default I have returned...

      (ends the corny Protoss Dragoon impression)
      For those who remember me and my old attempt to lengthen cap ships back so long ago before TC was announced, have a cookie for good memory. (half a cookie if you just remember me :P )

      For all you other young whippasnappa's, dont mind the old senile poster and his ramblings :P

      After a year or so away from these forums, I return to a whole new ballgame in the X-universe. X3 Terran Conflict is out! OMG trailer madness OMG XTM ships in X3 TC OMG OMG OMG *pops a braingasket*

      ...but seriously now.

      Confession time: I regretted getting X3 Reunion when it came out. Bugs on release alone made me feel that way. Dont get me started on how hollow proper fleet control was, relying on complex (and CPU-crunching) scripts just to get some semblance of fleet-ness into my game and dont get me started on the non-mouse-based UI...

      Now X3TC is out, I'm quickly catching up on the news.

      Yes, I've been living under a rock known to many as Real Life Issues The calling only came back when I saw X3TC being sold at a local software retail shop. I was like "WTF O_O" and immediately ran home to google on it. Lo-and-behold, it indeed is the new X game.

      Now dev blogs and other information on the forum is good and all, but without risking putting down the moolah for the game (mostly because I've been a bit of an idiot lately and bought GTA 4, Spore, and Mass Effect. Wasted cash ), can I be a bit of a "bah humbug" for you guys a bit?

      Okay, questions, launch!

      1. "Wings" of commandable ships... how do they work, and are they finally the answer to proper group/fleet control OR are they just simply the bonuspack GMC built-into the engine, also, my research show there's a limit to how many wings you can have, is this true?!

      2. Related to 1. Is the AI not completely brain-dead and will ram that brand-new M2 into my M7 trying to get onto my wing in formation? Also, will they finally not get themselves shot up trying to be useful or is this a case of "Fight Command Mk3 or stupid AI"?

      3. Do my eyes/the food I just ate/Xmas fever in my head fool me, or are some of XTM's crew part of Egosoft for X3TC?!

      4. Complexes still spaghetti monsters or X3TC has some built-in anti-spaghetti mechanics now?

      5. is X3TC more moddable than X3R? It was a headache just modifying X3R to my tastes...

      6. is XTM coming to TC?

      Welcome Back, KaZuma!

      Good to see that you have returned *grabs half a cookie*

      To come to your Questions

      1. Withe the "Wings-Command" you can assign your ships to 10 different Wings (Yes theyre limited) which can take commands like a single ship, what is pretty good in fleet battles.

      2. The AI was slightly improved, they now use the full set of weapons against you, including the Pulse-Beam-Emitter and the Massdriver. But theyre still pretty dumb, but they TRY atleast to evade you when it comes to a M7 to M7 meetup at a gate.

      3. Most of X3:TCs content was made by the XTM-Team and yes, Egosoft hired some of them.

      4. Still spaghetti

      5. It is more modable than X3:R, aslo we now have a new Mission Director which will speed up creating missions alot.

      6. No! spoiler: But well make a new Mod called XTC

      Gah, you lot have all new shiny bits besides your names o_O been busy lately, havent you?

      Extra edit:
      I am about to open my Xmas presents today (a day late, I might add ) and one of em looks to be the key to me getting X3TC. Thing is, the little "dontbestupidlikelasttime" guy on my shoulder is still screaming at the top of his lungs into my ear, and for good reason.

      Copy protection.

      Dont get me started on Mass Effect, Spore, and worst of all, GTA 4's horrifying (and PC-reformatting) copy protection.

      For those who have the Steam version, please skip this rambling of an old poster from the bygone era of XTM 0.6. For those who have the boxed TC, please do lend a hand to someone afraid of stepping into the nanny-state-like world of DRM in videogames.

      Big question: How does X3TC's copy protection work, and is it intrusive/breakable/broken/have limited installs/conflict with anything?

      Hiya KaZuma,
      not sure i was around when you were before, still always nice to make new friends

      Onto the business... yep TC's copy protection seems to have little or no problems to date at least for me, i've installed the beggar on two laptops and several "desktop" PC's (none of mine actaully stand on the desk, one's heavy enough to collapse the damn desk ) and have had zero problems, so long as i remember to put the DVD back in the right drive

      Hope to see you around

      Kevso

      Ka-ching! Purchase made! Time to go see if X3TC is indeed all the news says its at...

      ohwai-

      Gotta get the patch :P

      edit: Wow, I've heard of stories of X games having little to no manual. TC's manual looks beefy compared to what the stories say...

      Good enough info too...
