first off the falcon sentinel i got out by flying it through the xenon sector
and in my game it came with 1 125mj shield.
and to find hidden jumpgate i got to the sector then use jump and move to position with jump drive and move the cursor to the side of the map where i think the gate will be

like maelstrom i move the cursor to the far west edge when i jump i come out the west gate (it saves flying all over the place looking for it)

The Nova is in the second unknown sector below Maelstrom.
SpoilerShow
This is the same sector as the BalaGi missions puts the group of ships salvaged by the Yaki. So if your doing the BalaGi missions, you will find the Nova there as well. If you havent started the missions yet, then only the Nova will be there.

Updated with the Derelict ships for Terran Conflict.

If someone has a list of the containers, let me know so I can add them too.

I saw the edit in the first post but I'm still lost. Where is the 'Quickstart'? I've just installed the game and none of the starting options give me a Buster.

Thanks.

/EDIT/ Right, sorry, I just noticed this is for X3, it's listed in green as X3T so I thought it referred to Terran conflict.

I got a list not long ago but havent yet had a chance to check them. On my list of things to do.

Baldy Pevsner, noted, I'll make a note of that sometime.

To get the same thing now, you would use the trader start. Cant remember the name offhand.

Thanks, although I'm still struggling. I tried the trader start (it's called Humble Merchant) and I'm instructed to get the flight training, started that, everything going okay till he asks me to fire at some crates. Problem is, no lasers. I tried ejecting and getting into my other ship but that hasn't got any either. So I have to tell him I'm bailing out of the training and now I'm just drifting about, is this the right time to start following your guide, even though I'm weapon less?

Cheers.

Well, Humble Merchant is all about trading (as the name implies), so it's not surprising you don't start with any weapons. (The game probably shouldn't encourage you to do the flight training when you can't possibly complete it, but that's another matter).

Don't think it is, or the Arrow either. Fastest ships you can get in X3TC are things like the Teladi Kestrel at just over 600 m/s.

Hi here. First of all, I wanna say thanks for a great guide, I know is a little late but I hope you still read this.
I have some little questions also if somebody can answer:

1. I got in the sector with the nova ship, but i don't think is there. At -12, 1, -19 i don't see anything exept asteroids (is a big asteroid near me). It could be inside of that big asteroid at those coords? The bad thing is, i can't see the asteroid too good if is not iluminated by the sun, if not, is pure black...(the falcon was pretty easy, I got it out how it was, without JD)

2. I started with the terran campaing, after I finish can I continue with the rest of the campaings? I didn't made so many missions tho, I started searching for ships...

Thx in advance

Nova ? If you play TC, your looking at the wrong list of ships. TC didnt have a Nova. (Unfortunately). The Nova mentioned in the guide was in X3R only, which shows the age of the guide now.

You can be doing Terran, Final Fury, Hub and Gonor Plots all at the same time if you want, or 1 after the other.

Hub plot takes the longest - I did Terran, Final Fury, Goner and then Aldrin Plots before I was anywhere near completing the Hub plot that I started first.

Waw thank you verry much for the fast answer. Yes I am playing TC and damn, so I lost 2 days searching for that ship :lol: :lol: :lol: see what happens if ppl don't read carefully :). Anyway, from all the ships wich one is the best? Or from the ships that are for free wich one is best to keep? from what i seen falcon is the best, and I will sell lots of them (i still have to get more of them tho)
Is nice if I can start different plots, i am thinking to start the assassin one...

Thx
