Thanks Egosoft, I am installing the game now, I can't wait!

Also credit to Amazon, my copy arrived somewhere between 12:30pm and 2:50 pm, which is quite impressive considering I didn't ask for first class delivery.

I shall now ruin the big surprise for all you who are's the biggest secret X3 TC has to offer, I'm shaking as I type this:

YOU GET A FREE POSTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Incredible eh?

Ahhh, I've been away for a while, XTM filled the gap, but it's good to be back. I bloody love this game. I love it so much that I'm almost sad to have some really cool social things planned for this weekend.

Oh well, I hope you are all satisfied soon, and once again congrats to Ego, all the XTM boys, and all of you lovely forum mods for dealing so patiently with what is effectively many thousands of over-excited children given tonnes of sugar and then made to wait for their presents.

Hip-Hip, HOORAY!

Since today is the day of the official release of X3: Terran Conflict I thought it would be nice to give more than just one eye-candy on one day, so I uploaded three screenshots into the gallery of the SotD. Special thanks also to Alex Vanderbilt and enenra who sent me screen two and three. I hope you'll like it :)

Me neither, but them I'm not going to be able to play it until after Christmas.

It was really weird, up until it was released, I was *really* eager to just pre-order it even though I couldn't play it. But now it's been released, I can easily wait until after Christmas (in fact, if I ask for it as a present, I won't even have to pay for it - someone else will).

Yeah I'm curious to see what the game is like, if Steam decides to go faster than 100 KBps... I started the download this morning and it's still going on... :roll:

Well i can't speak for everyone of course, but i'm a buyer and my copy has NOT turned up.

Might still show up tomorrow of course but i'm expecting next week now.

I have to say play.coms delivery service may be free these days, but it was much, much more reliable when you had to pay for it.

No delivery today for me :( . But maybe Saturday or Monday with any luck.

Welcome back to the forum, looks like it got a little hot from all the people online a few hours ago. Probably crash again tomorrow. :D

Two of todays screenshots are only 120 * 80 pixels. Neither useful or mouthwatering. :cry:

Oh, that should be the khaak M6. If it's like the XTM version, its wings rotate around the body. Kinda weird, and if you try to manually dock to most things in it, you'll crash, but it's really worth a lot of credits if you can capture it (at least in XTM).

I know this is probably too late to be of any use for most people, but I just noticed that Steam have hosted it on the Terran Conflict product page, and have probably been doing so for some time, so for the poor few that are still waiting, here's a link: ... 1224195223
Thanks for this, greatly appreciated. :thumb_up:

I have nothing else to do this weekend until the game arrives. And when it does arrive i dont want to be forced to read the manual during working hours :P :thumb_up:
