X3 Plot Guide

Post by giskard » Tue, 24. Jan 06, 09:09

Hi all.

Here is a guide to the X3 Plot.

It contains massive spoilers but it is not a walk through. It gives info on how to do missions but not on how to find mission sectors. I will hold your hand in some parts but throw you in to the fire in others.

The missions are listed in bold so you can quickly jump to the mission your stuck on and only read that part if you want too. Just do not count on your mission 8 being my mission 8.

Ive listed 20 missions in this guide and most players usually only name 10. So you need to check the name of mission rather than the mission number.

Im hoping the guide will reduce the amount of typing I do in tech support. So if your stuck, have a read. :)

Hi giskard,

Thanks very much for plugging you guide...whilst I consider myself adept at X2 gaming, I couldn't get the hang of the turret gunning in the early X3 mission with the Goner.

I found the auto-dieing very frustrating and time consuming to the point where I gave up to explore and make money elsewhere in the universe. I was sure that someone in this excellent community would post about it eventually :-)

Although yours wasn't the first guide I read, I think your point about the accuracy of the auto-aim will help me out. I had auto-aim turned full on assuming that the mass driver was fast enough to keep hitting, so I thought that my problem was that the mass driver was simply too weak for my insufficient level of skill.

Thanks again,
Sparky

Thanks guys.

Autoaim:

Well the key point to remember here (so people dont have to read spoilers to get this tip) is any target heading straight for you is better shot at with auto aim turned off. Any target flying across your path or turning towards you is better shot at with auto aim turned on. This is true for all combat and not just turret missions.

Btw the plots changed a lot since 15 nov, so the other guide is slightly out of date now.

If the auther wants to update it he needs to replay any mission involving the khaak, the Ore mine mission, the xenon 101 mission and a couple of others that i cannot remember right now.

Oh the scanner missions too.

Can't dock?

You need to boost your race relations. Kill some pirates.

Or Xenon or Khaak.

Oh btw dows it matter if im in a split ship or not?
Acorrding to Giskards walktrouh you should use a free falcon or mamba...

ashdrak: No it doesnt matter what ship your in but if you happen to have an m3 such as the mamba or a captured falcon then combat is much easier.

Its more a tip to help than a requirement you see.

Thanx!
But i just discovered something You may have left out of your guide intentionally.
I think it might be considered a spoiler so ill see if this works.
Spoiler
Show
In Thuruk's pride you dont have to dock at the trade post and check the bbs. Just fly around by the silicon mine and wait for Saya to start a dialog. then comm the station and speak to the captain then go from there..
Please let me know if im right about this?
It all boiled down to that whole Exploration,Exploration,Exploration idea :wink:

Your right but i believe that is in the guide.

Its a grey area that people sometimes miss in the game so if they missed it then they need to know what to do next and so i told them to be safe.
