      Default Which starter game?

      Complete newb to X3, or the entire X series, and so far it reminds me of EVE. played lots of trials for it, liked mining, but didn't like anything else.

      Ok, so which starter game or universe would be best for a newbie? I see 4, besides the custom, and I'd just like to build a base and things and go blow things up fast! That's it, really.

      I did a custom game, not custom at all(only one universe, no other choices.), bought Nostrop oil, went broke cuz no one near me will buy it. Ok installing 2.0a patch, and I await responses.

      edit: added questions
      can you rename all your belongings, like buildings and ships? Id love to rename my HQ Za Warudo...just cuz i can..and any rush ships "AF's" after Oblivion's Adoring Fan..ha!
      "By Azura! It's the en-" BOOM!
      yes i'm evil..

      If you want some action, get the terran start and do the terran plot right away (the blue book icons). Pretty much straight forward.
      But keep in mind, this is NOT Eve online. This is completely different. You'll get the personal HQ pretty much in the "endgame". You can build factories, market places equipment dock etc. if you have enough money... but they're not cheap.

      You can rename anything you like, most commonly by hitting the "m" key while in the main property menu of the qbject in question. You can name your lightning fast M5 ship "Eat dust!!!" (yes, three "!" re no problem ) You can even rename yourself as Brad Pitt or Paris Hilton, there is no limit and the game accepts every name

      @Ainkut
      Welcome to TXU

      I recommend the terran start too. It's the easiest one for beginners and you can start immediatly with the terran plot. That helps very much at start

      yeah i did the Argon Patriot..waht the hell is THAT?! i took 3 hits, shields down, took 3 more hits, 20% hull left...takes 9k credits per 1% hull, got to 21 and was broke, and now i need a rank up to repair it.
      my friend gave me a copy without documentation, and the 'tutorial' is just, move here, shoot this, you're on your own
      plus, all pirates ignroe policy, transports, docks, and go after me..smells like a space version of Morrowind(everyone went after you, there was no 'aggro' judgment, just, YOU DIE!) so yeah time for dinner..maybe i suck cuz im hungry?

      terran trader, right? im on it..

      There are even some more names which won't show up

      @aimkut

      Don't try to find similarities or you're lost from the beginning. You're sitting in a very tiny, slow and fragile ship. It's just an Elite, you have to earn money, millions of credits, and i'm not joking. Don't try to fight bigger ships, it's not Morrowind, it's not Eve online, it's unique. In Morrowind you can run away... in X3 you're lost in a blink of an eye if you get somebody abgry about you in a bigger ship. The first task for you as an argon patriot is... make your way to Omicron lyrae and search in this sector for a blue book icon. Omicron lyrae is very far away for someone without experience... so it's your first real adventure to get there, no joke If you found the blue book, the first plot will start. If you start as a terran, you will be in direct vicinity to this sector.
