There's an image posted not so long ago with an install screen listing english as a language one can install. Doubt that's the problem (who knows, could be full of all you base are belong to us).

Really wonder how much steam will be selling it for. Guess we will know on the 3rd.

Edit: Thought I added this... it would be really interesting to capture a khaak capital ship. Would be the first time we could actually do it (vanilla). Those things are so much more deadly with a human using the weapons. A KM6 would be really cool if they add one. Guess this being the third game with the little friends it would be good to get away from the combat ranks required to capture them.
Sounds like it will be cheaper to capture compared to outright buying a ship, will just take quite some time to obtain the might able to overcome the target. Would make obtaining Yaki ships simpler too. Mmm, my HQ will have a ton of blueprints Very Happy

I hope that large (M1 M1) to very large (M0) capital ships play a more significant role in TC. Boarding a large ship with actual spacesiuted marines sounds intriguing. I like the M0's in XTM as far as design, I love to fly by them in a large scale battle (that is when I own them) and when one is engaged in battle as well. The sheer awesome size of them is a sight to behold however, in X3 the present state for such battles is limited due to issues; ie collision detection, restricted movement (which could be part of a strategic plan). Lets hope in TC having wings and a more robust group management system will useful in a tactical/strategic capacity. Waiting with great anticipation for X3TC!

If your ok with having to play an offline game, online, which for me means leaving your antivirus /spyware running while you play.


Common misconception about STEAM and its not true at all. I play X3 on Steam and most of the time do it offline. You only need to be online when you download it. Once its on your computer you dont have to be online. Steam has a mode called OFFLINE MODE. If you close Steam or restart your computer you have to login again but once it has your login info you can play offline all ya want.


OK, so I have a question for you:
Let say at home I download X3:TC to my laptop, login then play the game. Without login out, I put the laptop to Hibernate, then go to school, where port 27K have been blocked. Can I still play X3:TC? (Note that at school I will then have a different IP address than home, or I can choose to not connect to the NW).

At school, all HTTP, HTTPS ports are open, except the game ports in the 27K range are blocked, and there is no way to convince the IT guys to open them.

TIA.

when you downlaod off of steam, you download the WHOLE game and unzip it and install it to your computer. basically you can download it, then lose internet connection for life, and itll always be there like a built in x3 CD

Never had a problem with hibernate and offline mode... a laptop that can run TC though, that's impressive. Wink

Yes, when you get to school and exit Hibernation mode, steam will notice it can't connect to it's server. It will then enter 'offline mode' where all the games that you played/installed whilst online, will still be available to you, but you will not be able to install a new game that requires steam until you have an internet connection.

NOTE: This only applies if you have the option for "remember my details when I'm offline" (or something similar) selected.

Never had a problem with this system myself, so doubt you will either. You may do well to read the FAQs on the steam website if you are still unsure.

Hope we get the Fight trailer soon.

One question about the blog.

Blog, September 3rd wrote:
Originally we asked Owen Lake, the guy behind the Terran plotline and one of the mission programmers, to write a little article for the blog today.

Unfortunately he had to catch up on his sleep after some really stressful days, trying to kill plot bugs. So while he gets his well deserved rest, let me introduce Ivan Tefalco:


Have you forgotten Owen or is he still sleeping Very Happy ?

Maybe a youg beautiful woman should kiss him awake because it would be nice to see his entry about the missions. Very Happy

Thanks to nirwin and Kenneth. That sells it for me. So I only need to log on to Steam when at home, when I need to install an upgrade. That works for me!

The one thing that puts me off Steam games is the price. I can get them far cheaper from other online retailers than Steam. So much for Steam cutting out the middle mean leading to cheaper games.

Steam are selling CoD4 for $69.99.

Play.com are selling it for £15 with free delivery. Amazon for £14.

The last game I purchased through Steam was quite expensive after the exchange rate and tax calculations had been made. I'll check when I get home and see how much it works out but suffice to say, if I can get it from anywhere else I don't buy it through Steam.
