This thread is great :)

Ive never seen so many guides covering so much.

An Apocholpses stuff is getting better by the day too. I checked out his complete guide to everything the other day and its a really nice piece of work.

Why thank you so much Giskard.
Your names splatted all over egosoft now with all these new (yet smashing) completions. Do you actually play X3 :)

Apocholypse: Yes I play a lot, which is why i keep getting new ideas for guides. It is also why the script i released is taking so long to update. That and the fact Egosoft logic seems to be totally insane at times. Normal rules for computer logic seem to be a bit bent around here. :lol:

Anyway, keep up the good work mate.

If you hit any problems with regards to locked threads (read your post about it), let me know. I can arrange access to respawn as news poster for you if you wanted to post a guide in a location where you can always update it.

Just curious, but is there an table some enterprising person might have whipped up displaying the weapons and their capabilities?

I went through TBullets.pck and TLaser.pck and extracted the weapon information:
http://files.filefront.com/x3weaponsxls ... einfo.html

Note that it contains some spoiler information, as well as some... interesting... weapons that aren't in the game :-).

Let me know if you find any errors in it.

those weapon specs are rediculous!
the ion disrupter is practically useless in this game as a beta pac can drain nearly as much sheilds at half the energy drain...

ugh, this game is dumb

i though we got past that whole hept's are better then ppc's BS from X2

Actually I think it's sad that PPC's are so bloody useless too.

TSM, thanks for adding the X3 rank list to your sticky. I'm sure a lot of peeps in North America will find that useful. But technically, it's not really my rank list so you might want to remove my name from the title. I only started the thread to ask for it and it was arch2 that posted it for us.

Hint for Excel users..

Post by BugMeister » Sun, 18. Dec 05, 22:22

Just by way of a hint to Excel users..

- you can freeze your headings in Excel - this will enable you to scroll the body of the chart under the heading line..

just type "freeze headings" in the office assistance search for more info on the subject - it involves using freeze pane...

..it means that you don't scroll the headings off the top of the page - and it's so much easier to use the mouse roller than the scroll bar.... :D


NB. select the row under the heading and freeze pane - Many thanx for your efforts, you guys - banana, anyone?!

I added the pane freezing to my x3weapons file and fixed a small error. New one available here:

Has anyone produced a "quick-key" list of the keypress sequences to initiate instructions yet?

- it would be useful if there was a list of the more common sequences..

- it would stop me having to drag the cursor through the treacle if nothing else! :D

So far I got -

To change ships whilst in dock - L L L Ent R R Ent [change ships]

..anybody wanna add any more?

Im with Bug here, it would be helpful.

The current menus are long winded.
