Bozo's Blog #4
Posted by bozo64r on 16 Dec, 2011 1 comments
I thought would write a quick blog whilst I am d'loading the new X3
I will be adding screen shots to my forum page for them, so you lot can see what it is like. If you have any think you want me to take a look at feel free to ask on a forum page.
I am looking forward to playing AB, just hoping my system can handle it.
Something that really annoys me is the fact that I have a 50mb/s fiber optic broadband and I am just cracking 5.5mb/s d'load and it had a peak of 6.1mb/s.
Currently I am on ... » Read more
November activity round-up
Posted by Roguey on 20 Nov, 2011 0 comments
Today (whilst my internet is working), ive been checking to see what activity has been happening on the sites. Here's a little round-up of the site activity.
In general there is a reduction of X3/TC visitors (I guess people are finishing the game and moving onto new things/waiting for Rebirth). Glitches in the game I guess haven't helped.
The hits on the Rebirth site have dropped also (to between 15-30) - however with very little new Rebirth news I can understand why. Ego have introduced a lot of changes, yet very little news - ... » Read more

Hmmm, not much to say but knowing me I can make it into a lot.... ;P
I have started looking for various things involving the X games that are worthy for the news feed. I will post them from time to time so please take a look. These will mainly involve updates and other major things such as the recent one of the X Wiki shutting down. So please feel free to look at them
I have now become re-addicted to X3TC I am currently going around blowing people up in my Taladi Shrike, I had just completed a mission killing someone, it gave me ... » Read more
X3TC » Vanilla madness
Posted by Roguey on 22 Aug, 2011 0 comments
Since discovering a flaw in X3TC, ive gone a little nuts making PPC's, then putting them on Orca's for sale. Money is no longer a problem:
The worse bit is that my game is still unmodified - I guess because the flaw is in X3TC then technically its not cheating, nor modding the game: as basically the game has a flaw. If you want to see the flaw, check here.
Oh, btw im going to kill everyone in the X-Universe when my armada gets big enough. I already have 8 ... » Read more
X3TC » Capturing a Atmospheric Lifter made easy
Posted by Roguey on 14 Aug, 2011 1 comments
I was floating around Terran space when I noticed the Terran TL - Atmospheric Lifter. It has no guns but 80,000 cargo size, 20k more than the next biggest the Argon Mammoth! This would be great for complex building.
At first I tried to chase after one in my Split Cobra, however the Terran TL has a slightly higher top speed - I couldnt keep up. I noticed the ship travels to the planet (around 450km from the first location), disappears, then a few moments later reappears at around 110km - heading towards the [b]USC Orbital ... » Read more
X3TC » The joining of complexes
Posted by Roguey on 12 Aug, 2011 0 comments
When you start building your own complex, if like me you keep adding more and more stations until it becomes a messy or so busy its hard to find a place where to add another station.
There is a 20-25km limit of where you can place station away from a HUB, however there is a way to extend your complex even further by joining complexes together.
For example, you make complex 1 have all your mines, then make complex 2 with all your food/bio resources and so on. Then you can link all the complex together to form one giant complex. The ... » Read more
X3TC » Getting your own Hyperion
Posted by Roguey on 10 Aug, 2011 0 comments
In X3TC the old Hyperion from X3 has been changed from an M7 to a M6. Most of the stats are the same, apart from the shields (1GJ) and few other things. This makes the Hyperion one of the best normal M6's to have (it can also dock at any station). However this ship can not be brought, so its boarding time!
In my game I used an M7M with some Flail missiles and 1 boarding pod. I used Flails missiles to bring down the shields to under 10% - You could use Hammer's but they do too much damage.
Once you got the shields down, send 1 ... » Read more
X3TC » My real boarding success
Posted by Roguey on 28 Jul, 2011 0 comments
A while back I saved up the money for an M7M rather than a M7, because I wanted to try and board ships. I also wanted to know why M7M were so costly. Ive invested a lot of money into training my marines, with little return.
Today I got 20 marines ready after much training and thought ill have a go at a Boreas, seeing its a ship I really wanted. I didnt hold out much hope but figured ill have a go anyway.
So, I changed my race relationship to hostile to the Argons, then started to fire Hammer Heavy's at the ship - so to bring down ... » Read more
