X3: Terran Conflict 2.1 has arrived!

Post by Xenon_Slayer » Mon, 8. Jun 09, 13:25

The much anticipated 2.1 update, which features a host of new content, is now available to download from Egosoft.com.

A couple of months have passed since Terran Conflict 2.0 was released around the world and particularly for the first time in the United States. We welcome any new fans who have recently discovered the X-Universe. In keeping with Egosoft’s commitment to post-release support and enhancement of our games, we’re very happy to announce the release of the 2.1 update.

Update 2.1 features the Treasure Hunt Mission, created by a group of mission programmers from our community. The mission will have you searching for a stolen carrier, its crew and its precious and unique cargo. Also, after several years of ignoring petitions, the Commonwealth Economic Body has finally approved the creation of Large Crystal Fabs, available to all industry moguls across the universe. In military news, industry giant, Bala Gi Research, has taken a lucrative contract to improve enemy-detection algorithms in sensor systems, boosting Sector Patrol efficiency. As a result, several Spaceweed companies have taken out additional insurance policies on their freighters.

Again, the DevNet testers have been hard at work making sure that this update reaches you in the best condition possible. A big thanks to all who have helped in its development. Other features of the update include a performance boost, the functionality for the game to continue running while in windowed mode or minimised, improved tractor beam tow behaviour, additional marine information in several menus and several ships tweaked.

Terran Conflict players who bought their game from Steam are reminded that their Steam client will automatically update the game and that there is no need to download the patch from Egosoft.com.

There is additional news on X3: Terran Conflict 2.1, as well as other news, in Edition 37 of the X-Universe News.

The first Bonus Pack is already undergoing testing with the Devnet members. As for more patches, you'll have to wait and see.

I cheated and read about that change when they first started testing the 2.1 patch in the L3 forum.

After I read about that (as well as the reduced Crystal requirements for The Hub), I put my game on hold. I'm on the Crystal stage of that plot, and I decided it would be much, much less frustrating with Crystal Fab L's.

To Egosoft: thanks for the update. Few developers provide as much post-release support for their games as you folks do. Well done! I eagerly await the patch's Steam availability.

We've gone through some extra procedures this time to make sure that won't be more than just a few hours from now, so stay tuned.

That's great to hear. The previous Steam delays never bothered me too much, because I usually have more than enough games to keep me busy in between X3TC sessions, but I'm not going to complain about getting the patches faster.

Thanks again.

PERFECT TIMING!

Right when I'm through Ore and I am to build a Crystal empire... you bring a patch with Crystal Fabs L and also lowering Crystals requirements.

Thanks for all the hard work guys.
Where is it?
