X3-TC Returning player, cpl questions?

Post by Celthon » Fri, 5. Jun 20, 22:34

Reinstalled X3-TC; after loading saved game realize I've pretty much forgotten what little I knew about playing the game -- my questions:
(Note: I have no mods or 3rd party 'add-ons' -- just base game and X3:Terran Conflict Bonus pkg.)

Can I start a new game, to relearn things, without losing the current saved game?

My factories/production plants only operate when the game is actually running, correct?

Thank you for your time and assistance.
Playing X3:TC base game, with Bonus Pack installed...no Mods.
Played for about a month last year, reinstalled the game 6/5/20...so I'm relearning what little I learned before.

1. You will overwrite the quicksaves and autosave, but will not overwrite numbered save slots unless you choose them. Alternatively use mrbadger's excellent savegame manager which is vanilla safe and allows you to keep saves of different campaigns safe and separate.

2. Correct, otherwise how would the game loop be running? You can run the game in the background while you do other things though - at some risk to your assets of course.
