[TC] Starting points v.6.12.413 subtype 69105

Post by supakillaii » Sun, 9. Nov 08, 14:06

DISCLAIMER: It should be finished. If you find anything wrong you will PM or email me, and I will kick you in the face. With jump-somersault-spin-face-drop-kick. It will hurt. Then I will most likely update this. Also, I don't have the exact percentages for the starts that have the name of the rank name, and I don't have the rank name 'nor percentage for the ones with only numbers (Fight 33333 for example), and I don't know if I'll add/change them, as I've currently pretty much abandoned the forums, and don't know when/if I'll be back. Perhaps after the Superbox... Also, I have no idea about the regedit stuff, I only know that ffff(f?) opens everything, or at least did when I used it last time.

Didn't work that way for me - have completed Terran plot & it is not yet available. Also don't think it's due to Terran rep since this is currently Hero of Sol (18%) & I have read posts on this forum from people unlocking this start when they had a considerably lower Terran rep.

Curious - I'm almost certain it showed up after the Terran plot for me.

There's a registry trick that should unlock all of them.

Don't do anything you're not sure about in the registry.

1. Go to Start -> Run -> regedit (or on Vista, just write regedit on the start menu's search bar)
2. Search for Egosoft, browse to the X3TC folder.
3. Double click on "GameStarts".
4. Change the value to fffff.

That should do it.

My current hypothesis is that perhaps there's more than one prerequisite, i.e. completing the plot and something else...
perhaps it's spending a lot of time flying Terran capital ships? - that's something I haven't been doing much of, due to their limited selection of weapons (in general I prefer more versatile ships).

iirc, I hadn't even flown the Vidar when I finished the plot - just the Cutlass.

One of the first things I did, long before doing much of the plot.

Sorry, that should be Boring Boron :) forgot me G

The USC Commander appeared after finishing the terran plot (I also did the 1st mission of the argon plot to, so I could go into M148)
No other plot starts.
My Terran rep wasn't that high, Marshal of Mars I think.

I'm sure the Savage Split, Anon Argon, and Boring Boron appeared when I reached second highest Race rep with the relevant races.

Not very high yet with Paranid, or Teladi, but still have two Teladi starts, and a Paranid one.

I now have top race rep with Argon, Boron, and Split and have done the 1st Gate in the Hub plot, and no other starts have appeared, apart from the Aldrin one, and I don't know what caused that, as I only noticed it yesterday.

Yeah Edit Button :)

Anyway. I have read on here somewhere there is another Boron start, something like 'Lost Lar' where you start in a Boron TP in the middle of X Core.
It is in the manual, but I haven't got the start, so don't know about weapons and such.

EDIT:

Found This The guys there talk about the Lost Lar start, and someone mentions the Poisoned Paranid.

Maybe PM the folks in question, and get the info from them. :)

It's actually Poised Paranid, not Poisoned.
