X3-R: Nova(M3)! What happened? Why? (It didn't!)

Post by Nova! No! » Mon, 22. Apr 19, 06:04

Bought the X-SuperBox from Steam. (Worry about that my laptop can't handle more)

It looks like that Nova's max speed become about 115 m/s.
Not a Falcon, not a Centaur, it is Nova! :o

Played the X3: reunion several years ago,
and I remember that the old Nova is a faster ship in X3-R.

What happened to Nova? Why?

Na, it was snail-space faster in X2. In X3 it is just simply slow and unless money is an issue, there is no good excuse not to buy an Eclipse instead.
Though even slower, it comes with front turret and iirc nearly 100 extra cargo capacity.

Perhaps you remember some other variant of Nova?

 94m/s Argon Nova Sentinel
 98m/s Pirate Nova
115m/s Argon Nova
125m/s Argon Nova Vanguard
145m/s Argon Nova Raider
145m/s Pirate Nova Raider
Goner Pancake Protector X
Insanity included at no extra charge.

Argon ships have always been on the slower side, usually abit faster than Teladi, but slower than Paranid, Boron and Split ships

Sorry, I remember the speed of Nova is about 130 m/s .
But it looks like that my memory betray me.
Thank you very much.

So, I guess that I bought a Nova Vanguard several years ago but keep mistaking the Vanguard for Sentinel.

Can I change my account ID ? I want to choose a new ID : "My brain! No!"
