      Default Work In Progress; The Pirate Guide to X3TC

      Ahoy, a few years back I made a pirating guide (in game that is) for X3 and with the arrival of summer and the new patches, I am in the process of writing another. I am looking for input, tips, idea etc and need your help

      These sections will be included in the guide:
      Capturing Guide for fighters
      Capturing Guide for Stations
      Capturing Guide for Capital ships
      Recommended Scripts,
      Fighting Tactics,
      Management of ships,
      Profitable Privateering,
      Establishing a presence,
      Production of contraband,
      Smuggling,
      and finally
      Waging War as a Privateer.


      That said, I am looking for further tips and or requests for my guide/guides and have decided to ask here rather than the Ego forums b/c IMHO, this place is better for this sort of community thing.

      Sincerely,
      S. Von Draxis

      How about things you should look for in BBS?

      @Fox if you mean in game BBS, there is no such thing in TC anymore...

      @Draxis:
      Cool project! I like your existing guide and i think a new one for TC will definitely be a 'best seller'
      I personally would like to see a section on how to improve relationships within Yaki and Pirates, how to raise your rep with them to the point of being safe in pirate territory and how to effectively manage to live a life in the wild side - not just as an isolated outsider but being part of the outsider people.

      Hey Draxis, I was thinking if your looking for good reference material here is a pretty good guide.

      I think you should have some discussion in the waging war part about whom to wage war on. Unless you use some of the pirate mods or write a new one, the Yaki donít qualify as a race/nation.

      Maybe it all comes down to whose ships you want to fly or who you want to trade with. If you wanted to fly someoneís ships you would have to decide if you wanted to buy them (friend) or cap them (enemy). Of course if you want to trade with someone, they should be an ally.

      An early discussion of the ramifications of waging war on certain races would help up and coming pirates/privateers plan their mayhem.

      Personally I'm considering declaring war on the Split for making secret treaties with the pirates. Interesting how the Split ships all use Incindiary Bomb Launchers but the Split do not manufacture them.

      Its looking good, it should be done soon, I got distracted by a production I am in, so I'll get it up soon enough. About a week I guess.
