    Yeah, its playable I suppose, let me rephrase that to &quot;It didn´t live up to any expectations&quot;...The formula of simple &quot;give em a big gun and a bigger monster to shoot&quot; is just a little bit old, for me anyway. I don´t see any reason to play this over UT or any other similar title. PS - Quake 1 Quakeworld CTF still remains the most fun online FPS experiance EVER! <img src=smilies/icon_smile_big.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> Edited by - Griffon_26 on 10/19/2005 5:37:27 PM

    Leave the story alone, its gay. The best advice I can give is go to, the forums, either find the &quot;ultimate guide to everything&quot; post or click on &quot;search&quot; its sorted into sections where it displays the most useful guides and posts on a particular topic. Once you have enough money set up a solar power plant in kingdoms end, or somewhere to your choosing. That will be the basis for your empire.

    you did remember to stock up on small fast turning weapons? Aegis switches to the smallest weapon while tracking so its much faster. Are you sure you activated it right? Also, get the military crew members so you can go on &quot;action stations&quot;..I´ve found both these help against fighters, but not much with capital ship combat.

    Chips the x2 expert eh, <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> so how big is YOUR empire? I have about 15 solo spps, 2 self-supplying energy loops, and a self supplying double loop which produces high end equiptment for me (btw drone fighters are the most profitable end-product tech item) An M6 (centaur - the best for OOS) patrolling every sector in which I own property, and a few TL´s, a titan and a captured Xenon K as my personal ship, with a wing of captured Khaak M3´s. Ok so I like to brag. Anyway, do you use the bonus pack, with all the signed scripts? It really helps alot with setting up loops and management of alot of property. Anyway, a tip, for the first &quot;big ship&quot; you get, BUY A TL (transport large) preferably a Paranid Hercules for 17 million...You wont know how you did without it, its awesome for mobile mining, a home base, a storage ship, or just going into a sector and commanding your 10 docked freighters to go and buy it allll out <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>. When you realise you have a reasonable combat rating, you should start to check the BBS for assasination missions, in the high levels they can pay millions each run...make sure you have at least a corvette though. As for the way I started, just start capturing pirates outside a pirate base, sell the ships but keep a bayamon to capture in...then either use that or buy an M3 and start capturing Nova´s...Nova´s are awesome to capture, depending on what they have they can go for around 800K each. Then, buy a solar power plant, and a freighter to sell energy and another to buy crystals, at the average price, so it buys from trading stations. Then just continue buying SPP´s and setting them up in profitable areas, a good first location is Kingdoms End if your unsure. Once you get the urge to fly about in something BIG, get a TL first! Then if you want absolute destruction, get a Corvette. It´ll be a long time before you can afford a capital ship, though. If you start to get bored of X2, run a money script, buy an M2, go into a xenon sector or somewhere with alot of enemies, set turrets to auto-attack, and watch...then once cured go back to normal game <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> Edited by - Griffon_26 on 9/30/2005 7:12:33 PM

    Yeah, I´m really looking forward to it...x2 was just like many other German products, awesome but complex and a bit fiddly. It was a bit tedious to get into, but nothing came close to its fleet x3 the ship designs look a whole lot better, something that was a bit lacking in x2, although the Dragon was a favourite of mine...I hope the economic model is fixed, it was eons beyond Freelancers but was definantly broken due to the base product (energy cells) being far more profitable than any expensive, high end technology product, as it was supposedly shown in the economical pyramid. I hear they plan to release it on X-Box, but egosoft aren´t EA Games, they know what they´re fans want and they´re designing a challenging and complex PC game first and foremost.

    Today, I didn´t kill myself therefore I am not a coward! <img src=smilies/icon_smile_big.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> Seriously, I strongly commend Balthazars advice, and in my own life I have reached much the same conclusions as him...consider it.

    Isaac Asimov - the Foundation series and the Robot series...and his short stories not the greatest literary writer in the world but intelligent and a very interesting mind Films? 2001 A Space Odyssey of course...and the first Alien (the others to a lesser extent) was one of my favourite science fiction movies, I don´t see how its classified &quot;horror&quot;...

    I really really don´t get the thing people have here about advertising, does it really take that much mental ability to discern between someone trying to sell you something being the creator, or affiliated with the creators (which never happens on TLR) and some guy who is interested in somehting and wants to get others interested (which happens all the time). I mean are the 65 &quot;favourite food&quot; threads really more deserving of a place here than this one?
