Ta.

With your BTF thread, why dont you accumulate all the collected wisdom in the thread into a mini guide in the op ? "What the X3 player needs to know before tackling BTF without going bald".

I havent read past page 1 yet, but I already gather that for the X3 player, BTF is going to be serious culture shock, just on the basis of what isnt included that is taken for granted in the later games.

erm...yyyeeesss.

Understatement of the year.
Working blind,as I have it was quite an eye opener.It has taken quite a few hours of game-play before i started to feel "at home" with it.

Prices of products are different.
E-celss can be very lucrative, whereas ore will not go below 77credits and the max is not so high either.
atm I am buying for 90 and selling @ 135

Hi Apricotslice,

I just discovered X3: Reunion a month or so ago, and was impressed by the gameplay. The only bad thing about is the very steep learning curve, as many point out here on the forums.

Anyway, I wanted to thank you for all the hard work you put into building the Handbook and gathering all the information into an easily readable format, as well as for you humorous topics and tips.

Of course I also have to thank to all those whose tips and explanations are part of the handbook, they really make the life of any Xverse newcommers much easier.

Thank you all!!! Smile

Announcement :

Version 6 of the X3 Handbook is now available as a Kindle ebook for Kindle devices and devices that run the Kindle app. Price is $1.99 US.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EV43G3Y

I think it is best viewed from Ipad or Ipad Mini, which have the largest screens. On the smaller devices, I'd recommend that the font size be dropped to get more on the screen for each page.

The size is over 3mb, which for Kindle is very big. As such, the minimum price I could set was $1.99, given the download costs for that size of file. Sorry about it being higher, but there was nothing I could do about that.

It does not include any AP stuff as yet. I decided that a version for TC was appropriate for those still playing the game, and that the AP version to come should be a separate release. This will establish a progression that will follow to the first Handbook release for Rebirth.

Anyone who is interested can download a sample and see how it functions.

All Guides and articles can be directly accessed by pressing the contents line. All links within guides and articles, especially back to the forum here, can likewise be pressed with a finger. (As long as you have active net on the device).

The is the next logical step in the evolution of the Handbook, albiet with a necessary cost involved.

For those who have recently joined the X Universe, and found XR unplayable for now, and have decided to try the previous games, here is the resource you need to get past the learning curve on TC or AP. Very Happy

I've been away from the game and the forums for a while now, but I notice the Handbook still gets about 300 downloads a month and some Kindle downloads.

So it is obviously still of use to those playing the game, even though its download volume has finally dropped from its once high of an average of 800 a month.

300 a month is still good to see though.

For those using the Handbook, does it need an update for AP ? The last time I looked was quite some time ago, and there was not really enough new material to be worth the effort.

Has that changed ?

wow ! 2 years is a long time ! Not sure if you have guides to all the AP updates...not read it for a long time.

But if not , then Rougey's site might still have them,if you need notes.


Nice to see it still downloaded though

Wait for upcoming AP patch then update it. You never know what Ego is going to pull out of their pants.

agree, also it is not sure in Bernds OP as to which game will be patched. Seems to be either TC or AP, which I read as one or the other, not both, and may just be limited to enhancing graph displays.

Going by the totally over the top whish list growing in this thread,
http://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=378073
I would not be surprised if he just takes a quick look, groans, gets an instant headache, and shelves the idea in favour of getting on with TNBT mkII.

edit added missing link to 'patch' thread

Nah I think as far as managing a team goes what they are doing is a good idea. Team has to be burned out from Rebirth whine fest... as if ppl weren't told that it's a reboot and they never played X game on release... meh. The point being is that patching an older title in a relaxed setting will be equivalent to taking a vacation for them.

So I wouldn't be surprised if besides fixing old things they'll toss in something amusing as a bonus. Xenon start lol?
