About the soundtrack. Will there be a download offered for users who purchased the Terran War Pack through Steam, or is it included with the hardcopy only?

Does this mean the problem of ships forgetting what they're doing when under attack has been fixed? I'm one of those who has experienced the annoying (and deadly) bug where ships stop what they're doing when being attacked.

No. They are both linked to the main plot, so you cannot play them if you start as Terran Commander.

The only gripe I have about the 2.0 patch fix list, is that there is no news on the DiD save game loss problem. :-(

No, you need the code:
<set_value name="Albion Prelude Plot Start" exact="1"/>
Which is missing on the Terran start.

That's correct. The X3AP-only add-on pack is only available in German-speaking countries. However the only difference between language versions is the packaging; all in-game languages are on the DVD itself, so there's nothing stopping you from buying the German add-on pack, either from the Egosoft shop or, say, amazon.de, and then simply choosing English in the installer.
A German box for the AP Addon is no problem for me, but what I'm confused about is what is actually on the DVD. Is it the full game or is it just the Steam installer that triggers an English AP Addon download from Stream when I select English?

from what ive read before i always took it as the full game files would be included on both AP and X:Rebirth disc copies, and you would only require STEAM to activate.... weither or not that is still the case i dont know

The HUB, the UFJD and PHQ? FINALLY!!! Now, there is a reason to play AP over TC.

One more thing though: Is there a chance "A New Home" plot will be included at some point?

I kinda liked having my very own sector in the game, it gave me a place come home to :) I know that sector is more semantics than real gameplay value, but I'm kind of sentimental like that :)

Catching up with some answers:
henkbein wrote:(1) If i have principal (but not technical) issues, how do i obtain this NoSteam executable (without lying) ?

(2) Can i uninstall Steam client after NoSteam executable has been activated ?
1. If you've bought and registered the game then you will be able to download the NoSteam executable. There won't be a questionnaire.

2. You can uninstall it if you want to. There is no practical reason to do so as you won't need to run the Steam client, but if it makes you feel better then go right ahead. Remember, though, that it's unsupported so you may end up reinstalling it if you have any technical problems you need help with, and that we make no guarantees regarding updating that executable should there be any further patch releases for the game.

Never say never, but there are no plans to do so right now.

We've not made any changes to notoriety.

I don't know, sorry.

I believe so.
VincentTH wrote:The only gripe I have about the 2.0 patch fix list, is that there is no news on the DiD save game loss problem. :-(
I still don't think that's something the game has much control over I'm afraid, which means it's not something we could fix in a patch.

The game is installed from the DVD. If you're buying the X3AP-only add-on then you'll need to have X3TC installed on Steam first, but if you have the DVD version of that too then you can avoid most of that download as well (see the Steam FAQ linked in the first post). If you're buying the Terran War Pack on DVD then both games are installed from DVD.

I doubt it. Major plot storylines are not normally "recycled" in this way.
