Especially for fighter pilots, never ever launch missiles while under fire. And certainly not Hammerheads!

The X games have a long gameplan, so patience is important above all else.
Learn to use stickies. Look here for mods for X3TC and here for guides across everything since X2. If you haven't read the Forum Rules do so before we beat you with sticks. Above all have fun.

Dont be afraid to Tick other races off. Attacking ships may affect your race rank but getting the game agitated will cause weird and wonderful reactions that keep your game interesting.

Don't try to shoot down an M5 with guns (not even flak) of an M7 (or bigger) during a station protection mission.... chances are you will destroy the station before the M5.

If a crate shows up as containing a Hammerhead missile, don't shoot it.
If an injury has to be done to a man it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared. ... Niccolò Machiavelli
