This is a guide thread, and guide threads have a much extended life on this forum, as they should. Since people are still actively playing and posting about X2, the age of this thread is really irrelevant. If you're playing X2. So that moaning and wailing you hear, could it be your significant other's reaction to you playing too much X? :P :lol:

LOL, point taken.

It just surprised me to see the thread pop up to the top like that, clicked on it and went "huh? you can buy energy cells for 9 credits? wait a sec, but there's nothing in President's End!" and then I looked at the post date and realized it was a thread from X2.

I don't know if moderators can do this (or even want to), but for guide threads like this it might be helpful to add [X2] to the subject, or something similar, seeing as this thread is pretty specialized.

Hey guys i got the following problem. I dont seem to be able to buy silicon, the option to buy it is red. Does that mean my ship cant hold it? Im on a Manta S.

That's exactly what that means. Manta's can't hold XL class cargo, which is what silicon is. All TP's were changed in a patch so that they could no longer carry anything larger than L-class cargo. You need a TS.

My question would be:

Is this thread useless for X3 players then?

can i just point out that if you need a ship to simply check out a sector or quickly drop off a nav sat then there is a paranid ship (i think((the guys below the argon territories)) which only cost 70 000 and with full speed upgrade go's 1 000 mps. which i think is worth it if only for nav sats or bonus missions. i made the money bak in 10 min using the very same ship.do note it only has 15 cargo, but its the fastest ship so only a 1MW sheild is trully needed

This guide is originally 5 years old, and doesn't related to X3:TC.

Which will be why he's talking about a Paranid ship that goes 1000m/s--there's no such thing in TC!

Anyway, this thread is very old, and doesn't appear to be linked from the main guides sticky, so I think we can let it sink.
