Okay, an update from me on X3.

I was looking for something to play and came across a rather dusty copy of X3 that I had tossed aside figuring once they patched the hell out of it, well, we would give it a whirl....

What is this, something like two years later? Okay, the game runs quite smoothly on my system, but OMG the ship speeds are so very awful slow. Wonder why that is? Speed them up a bit and it sounds like fireworks as they crash repeatedly into one another. The AI is so poorly written they had to slow down the ships to keep the blood bath to a minimum.

Bugs. I have to admit that I was on the lookout for bugs in this game, and like turning a rock over, the popped out everywhere. The docking system sucks (pretty much anything in system sucks) and whoa, what a difference compared to OOS.

I bought two TLs (mammoth) and sent them to the EQ dock in their respective systems (argon prime and light of heart). I was watching the Mammoth in Argon Prime (In Sector), while I watch the pretty dot at Light of Heart (Out Of Sector). Light of Heart docked in thirty second flat, I think the Argon Prime Mammoth is still trying to dock. The Out of System and In System mechanic are truly messed up (while this was true with X2 as well, OMG X3 freaking took that little bugginess made it one big fat monster).

While the graphics in X3 are nicer (the HQ addition was the only reason I picked the game up again to be honest), the game engine, interface, and overall game enjoyability factor are all inferior to X2.

Just looking at the forums as an example, the X3 scripting forum is relatively dead (feel free to see my posts on the buggy nature of their scripting process *ughhh*). The X2 scripting forum is still alive and kicking (more so that its X3 brother....

Egosoft, just ripped X3 off my system again, could you please add a player HQ to X2? Thank you so much!

Bottomline again ---> X3 sucks. For those that have been playing X2 and waiting for the opportunity for X3, remember I warned you.

Well, Harlock has added a Starbase to Top Gun 3.0 (not out yet), but it can't move, has extremely powerful shielding, dangerous weapons, and an office, so you could say that the Starbase is the Player HQ in Top Gun,

And there probably will be a Player HQ in Pandora, but whether or not it'll be a ship or a station, we don't know yet.

So, just keep updating on Top Gun, Harlock hasn't posted for a while, but he said he was real busy with RL stuff and modding, so he'll probably give us a big update soon.

But yes, there will be Player HQs in both of the most popular X2 mods!

If this is a HQ it's a bit normal that it doesn't move, try to move the White House :lol:

But well a good big M0 to smash all those scum through out the Universe would be great!

The X3 HQ is pretty weak. The ability to "paint" my ships is a pretty cool idea (but only two extremely limited options-- their implementation of it kind of sucks actually), and the reverse engineering some of the really odd craft is handy. I even like the fact that I can blow it up, though a bit odd of a feature (though it would have been nice on all the other stations too).

There are a couple of things about the X3 HQ you should probably know:
1) You cant sit in it. Thats right, no office to look out over the scenery and dominate the economy. You stay parked in your ship outside, just like every other base experience with X3.

2) I was really hoping that being in the HQ would somehow put you OOS (so that your spacecraft in a busy industrial behemoth, dont blow themselves up). Nope, while parked you can hear your precious ships blowing themselves up as they smack into each other, random asteroids, stations, spaceflys, whatever.... In all fairness, I read something in the upgrade notes where you can script your ships to be immune from this nonsense. Though, I never got around to doing anything but laughing that it even had to be added. :evil:

Final note on the HQ, it is a beautiful structure in so far as looks go. It has enormous storage and any ship is welcome to park at it. But even with its stunning visuals, I really wanted some big guns to defend it (read fortress) and an office. :cry:

Better late than never, but I still play X2 under linux, and X3R under Windows ATM.

Even though you didn't ask, as far as X3 goes, I expect to eventually move to X3TC once I can justify the cost (buying an imported retail boxed version as Steam can go suck eggs if they want to charge retail for a 1/4 retail product (minus box, manual, and media for the same price?!) ... )

I play x2 for 2 years but still.., i never get bored in playing it and even through the x3 has awsome graphics but still i like to play x2 i make scripts but not that complex yet and one galaxy that i made but its just starting. So i still like playing x2 but maybe i might play x3.

X3 is missing atmosphere !

X2 is like a good film or book. You forget your sat in your living room for a while. X2 is like The Matrix part 1, X3 is like the other two bad sequels!

Cheers
Remember. you are not a salmon !
