[X3R] How to win the race in the steam version?

Post by dot_Sp0T » Sun, 18. Jul 21, 22:13

(Unless you're actually good at flying, because apparently I ain't..)

I just can't win it. There's always one npc finishing a few hundred meters before me, no matter how often I try. I vaguely remember (and also can find old forum posts about it) that I used to mine the race-ring back in the day, and then lazily could finish solo. But doing that now just seems to produce the losing dialogue once I finish the race...

If this is the race that starts from a Teladi Trading station. I think I used to roughly learn the route. Then as I approached each waypoint, I would start the turn early, and use the strafe keys to slide around the waypoint so I ended up pointing in roughly the right direction for the next waypoint. This would shave a few seconds off each turn.

There may be some useful tips in here.
