Spoiler

-36, 0 , -63

Its the y that tricks you. Get more than 30 high or low, and you can miss the gate easily.

I found it just by systemactic trawl, keeping my eye on the y.

"You have a Mercury freighter sitting out in space doing nothing except being vulnerable."

I have not seen this any where. was it taken out in the patch?

Never mind i just found out its in the quick start. I went with the normal start becuse i dont normaly start a game on easy mode. i guess i will have to try the quick start this time.

Hi,

You said:
"The Mamba is tricky to recover, as it has 2 ship killer mines by it. You need to identify the mines first without setting them off, and approach from the safe side. "

How can we see the mines? I can't find the right path to reach the mamba :/

Can you give me some details please?

Before you get close, press the key that turns on "Find nearest enemy". The hud target marker will flash red while it searches. When you get close enough, the mine will be locked on and then appear on the map. Find the other one the same way at slow speed.

Edit : I've made a change to the guide, mentioning at the bottom the above tip, the one for getting the falcon out and the quickstart assumption.

that's a good point really.... i've not been looking for them to tell the truth.. but i haven't found any "free" ships yet.

i have been around the "oldest" block (XBTF sectors) but not much fether away then that... only been playing for about 24 hours worth of game time.

this free ship you said about in that block... didn't see that one ? where about's is it to ... ummm... and i forget what sector you said it was in now too.... d'oh!

Not quite sure what you mean by Xbtf sectors, as X2 was the earliest game to appear here.

The ship in boron space is off the beaten track, hiding behind an asteroid, so if your not looking for it, you probably wont see it.

Xbtf never appeared in stores near me. The first I knew of the X universe was when I stumbled on a copy of X2 long after if first came out.

Sorry, but .... Laughing Laughing Laughing

"off the beaten track" is Australian slang meaning to get off the main road, get away from the normal traffic areas, in fact get away period. In this context, it means look away from the gated area, and where ships normally go.

Some other Australian slang ....

"Going Bush" is getting off the beaten track and staying there.
"Going Walkabout" is getting off the beaten track and keeping on moving.

In the olden days, off the beaten tracking was done on foot. Later on motorbikes, but these days its all 4X4 or what Americans call a SUV (stupid ugly vehicle). Smile

Normal is having a 4X4 or SUV and never getting off the beaten track, but fully intending too one day.
