      Instead of the BBS you can get quests, missions or sector-maps by using the COMM at stations, which shows a symbol (lightbulb, Cr.-Sign or crosshair) in the right upper corner of the HUD when you are within the same sector.

      But i have to admit, i kinda miss the BBS...

      Yeah I like the new TC method of getting missions but I do kinda miss the BBS in a small way. It used to bug the **** out of me how it was implemented in Reunion though. I hated how you could dock at half a dozen stations and not find a single mission and then you would find one but the rank requirement was higher than you were. If they had made BBS missions more frequent and less restricted then it wouldn't have been so bad. But the TC way is good too.

      I've got to admit though, it's a shame they didn't leave the BBS system in because they sometimes had some interesting news stories that made the X universe a little more interesting!

      I shiiii..., yes i did.

      I feel ashamed now. If it's okay, i will step aside and let those, who really know their job, do the work. I'm sorry. If you need me, for an excuse or to blame anything on me, i'm the one in the lower left corner behind the wardrobe, next to the wall, unreservedly crying in neverending shame.




      And now back to topic:


      As foonslice said (btw - WELCOME foonslice ), the icons from X3:TC are very useful to quickly find stations which offers any kind of missions, but i think, most of them are to easy and to high (can i say so?) rewarded. It took me about 6 station defending missions to increase my argon rank from almost neutral to second highest level (don't know the title in eng.). This is how some fun is gone...

      Hey thanks for the welcome Badman.

      I do agree that the rewards for the new missions are a little bit to generous. I just took four station defence missions at the same time in a sector with only one jump gate and I basically sat there in my M6 shooting pirates as they came through in what was essentially a turkey shoot. At the end of it all I was 40,000,000 credits richer!

      Of course the problem I had with X3-R was that it took too long to get rich doing only combat and at least this way it won't be long before I have an entire fleet of M2s!

      I like the new system, I use it sparingly and do combat missions nearly exclusively. In fact, my trade rank come almost entirely from buying ships and kitting them out. My income is from capturing those roaming frigate patrols that were brave/stupid enough to leave their own space...
