Hi CBJ :)

Probably a bit of a daft question but what's the computer (and OS) specs. for running Farnham's Legacy?
I presume they're the same as for X3 Albion Prelude, but just thought to ask anyway. :)

Unfortunately (but unsurprisingly) our text file format is not supported by that tool.

That appears to only work for "flat" XML. Ours is paged, and also contains certain formatting strings.

There is also this one, but it looks outdated

Well then I'm in luck, for once, I'm still on dialup, 26.4kbps (3.2kB/s) most days, drops to 24kbps when it rains with frequent disconnects, govt has put hundreds of millions into expanding service in WV, mostly sucked up by Frontier Communications for massively inflated costs on small upgrades (racket), but these days their service is actually slowing down, lines degrade below DSL minimums and aren't fixed, my lines were never upgraded and get noisier every year. I tried to start a county gigabit fiber project, had $25.3M in funding lined up, but local good ol' boys did a power grab, kicked me and other techs off the project, put their friends in charge, then it fizzled out in spectacular incompetence, wasting $350k. Only hope was SpaceX Starlink service, now maybe Biden's infrastructure projects too, if its a purely federal project without much state or local control, til then I have to drive 17 miles to decent open wifi to download anything. But I digress, Steam doesn't work on dialup, hasn't since around 2009, tried hassling with shuttling game data via laptop but game validation never finishes, for me its GOG or nothing.

Even though my message was somewhat tongue-in-cheek, I’m sorry to hear about your difficulties. Tech-poverty or perhaps more accurately, connectivity-poverty increasingly adds to social/economic inequalities. Whole communities (particularly rural) either have no connectivity or very slow, prohibitive speeds. I’m somewhat more fortunate living in Europe, but even here there are still massive gaps across the continent. Not to mention that poorer nations suffer disproportionately - infrastructure costs often means trade offs in other, equally vital, areas and even when investments are made, technology moves at such a pace that the infrastructure is always lagging behind wealthier countries.

I’m impressed by the way you tried to help your community, that really should be lauded. And I hope, the negative experience won’t stop you from wanting to help in similar fashion again. I’ve spent quite a bit of time in the U.S. and I’m continually amazed that, despite its wealth and expertise, infrastructure investment seems so lacking. Here’s hoping that Biden’s plan is all it’s cracked up to be and somehow, will get through Congress!

But anyway, back to the topic at hand... So this is real after all? Best April fools yet! Let everyone believe you’re bluffing only it’s not a bluff after all. Seriously Ego, you’re messing with our fragile minds!

Really hoping that one of the added features will be support for UI and font scaling for higher resolutions. Albion prelude's UI was fine a decade ago but now many people have upgraded to 1440p or 4k monitors.
Wouldn't really be surprised if it didn't get added and won't blame Egosoft for ignoring it since it is a free expansion but I still hope for it

Y-llian,
Thank you for your thoughtful reply, and sorry I stepped on your dialup joke, it was funny, but also helpful to advocate for non-Steam/GOG users.

CBJ,
Is there anything GOG users could do to help facilitate a GOG release? Such as voting it up on GOG's game request list? Maybe a forum thread for GOG users to pledge to buy and gift an extra copy of X3:TWP to help cover any release costs? Testing?

Ketraar, Cycrow, X2-Illuminatus,
Any new script functions or script engine improvements?

Any scripts/mods merged in?

Is diplomacy race wide, or is there a new faction system, or is it more of a facade with mission scripts like corporations?

Any improvements to the comm menu? (e.g. like Anarkis' Enhanced Comm System for interacting with Pirate's Guild, Yaki Armada, and MBRR)

Any improvement to ship variants, and how variants are handled? (e.g. lately I've been nitpicking XRM raider, vanguard, sentinel, hauler variant balancing, generating several hundred new variants with X3 Customizer, and trying to figure out a balanced way to introduce a similar line of advanced, enhanced, prototype variants, and contemplating a balanced system to convert ships from one variant to another at most shipyards, and for rare variants using token wares seeded into ship loot plus huge sums of credits)

TS/TM rebalance was mentioned, is that stat tweaks or larger role change? (e.g. TM = Transport Medium, with similar variants to TS, in addition to carriers)

Any TS/TM combat variants? (e.g. TS/TM bombers and gunships, TM corvettes, TM carrier XL, with a system to convert salvaged ships into those variants, for use by pirates)

Looking forward to FL.

Dont think the forum software posting limit would allow the full list, but yes Cycrow added "a few" things to SE and MD.

Not sure I understand the question tbh, but Diplomacy has 2 main aspects, one is the way factions stance are defined towards eachother and how that effects player interaction. The second part is the tools player has to interact with factions through diplomacy. This goes from influencing relations to gaining access to things otherwise blocked (due to relations for example).
TS/TM rebalance was mentioned, is that stat tweaks or larger role change?
TS especially were completely rebalanced so that they various variants make more sense wrt to role, hopefully choosing a TS is more "difficult" then before where really only one or two would make sense to buy. TM were then adjusted to "match" the TS changes.
Any TS/TM combat variants?
You will like the new ships. :)

You will have to wait a little, but I may be able to provide it before release.

Thank you everyone!

I so love you guys. Really! I was never into modding X's besides the most important things (that later became integrated to the game like some of the trading scripts) so this opens a new venue for me too!
Only some 500 or so hours spent on X3 series (I think TC took the most of it, and maybe half of that was on utterly underwhelming PC with so bad FPS That every battle there were was an issue for me :D)

I just CAN't WAIT! I know my big problem is the Disney's May the 4th-releases, but I think FL wins. By far.
