[X3TC] Terran plot?

Post by Omini » Sat, 15. Dec 18, 17:56

I finished the escort of the Terran scabbard to the station in Heretics End (i.e. the bridge mission), but the follow-up mission to contact Lt Plinter in Uranus hasn't shown. This is *several hours* of real time later.

Anyone else have this issue? How can I 'prompt' it?

What's your rank with the Terrans? You need at least a neutral rank (Citizen) for the plot to start.

That must be it, I believe I am the rank below Citizen (Revolutionary?)...

So how in the world am I meant to boost my rank if I can't get any Terran missions? Fly around Terran space in my Kea and hope to stumble up some Xenon?

There can be Pirate Bases in Terran space. Bases have Pirates. Pirates to kill. rare, but more likely than the Xenon.

Revolutionary is the -1 rank. Rev 0% has -100 rep points. Rev 100%, i.e. Citizen 0% has rep -10 points. At most 90 points to go before you are Citizen.

You can get generic missions as Revolutionary. Not all missions require docking, but you can dock at some sectors/stations.

You should be able to dock at the Terran station in Heretic's End, more importantly your trader ships should be able to, park a CLS2 freighter there set to buy & sell the most expensive wares the station will sell at "average" price, won't do squat for your Trade rank ('cos you aren't making a profit) but you earn faction rep based on Trade volume not profits.

You might be able to take a "defend station" mission in Heretic's End. Killing enemies (pirates) in Terran space should edge up your reputation, but it might take a bit of work. Normally, unless you go out of your way to lower your Terran reputation, the escort mission is generally enough of an increase to allow the next mission.

Did you contact the Terran transport officer at the Heretic's End station after the mission? It doesn't appear as a pop-up, you have to ask to work for them.

I ended up doing this. During the escort I think I was using a ship with PBGs and I probably caught a Terran ship in crossfire. Killing a single Pirate M6 was enough to jump me from 43% Revo to Citizen. :)
