X3AP » A bit of a Balancing Act

I was throwing ideas against the wall the other day about X3TC and AP, and one that's been bugging me for a while now is how useless most of the M4 class is compared to the M3's, the M3's are simply better, and only a tad slower! So here'e my idea for a bit of an overhaul....

It should be changed so M4 = Workhorse civilian ship/defense fighter; M4+ = Interceptor; M3 = Fighter-Bomber; M3+ = Tank. I’ll explain how I would like this done, firstly with weapons:

The PAC, PRG and PBE should be dedicated Interceptor weapons, as they are all generally low damage per shot, high ROF and high bullet speed. The PAC should be the hard hitter of the 3; doing the highest hull damage (400 instead of 140), highest shield ... Read more

X3TC » My Burgeoning Fleet

After a bit of sorting, selling and stealing, my ship list is looking a lot more manageable; there is still about 50 TS's that need repairing and selling, but now all the excess fighters have gone, been put into wings or stored away for the PHQ.

I now have my Shrike outfitted as an RRF Destroyer that packs quite a punch, but it also has Red Wing mounted in it, which comprises of 5 Nova Raiders toting 4 HEPT and 4 PRG each, allowing for quite flexible usage; but I also keep my X-Shuttle in its hanger for personal use. My main ship though is my Panther, equipped to be a Carrier/Cruiser with plenty of ISR, CIG and FAA, and it carries Gold and Silver Wing in its hangers; Gold Wing being 10 Solano's all equipped with 6 Mass ...

DUKE NUKEM: FOREVER » Glitch insane difficultly

If like me, you started to pull your hair-out when trying to complete Duke Nukem: Forever on Insane (or very hard difficultly), then this may help.

Quite often you can walk into a area, you can be killed in a mere second then forced to wait 30 seconds for the game to reload (especially on the consoles). After a few tries, the load time gets very annoying. The end-boss is very annoying having no check-points between the battle. However this glitch works with him, as there are a check-point before and after.

This glitch basically allows you to play most of the game with God-mode on and Instant-kill enabled. You will need to unlock the cheats by completing the game on normal.

Background on the glitch
The glitch works ... Read more

X3TC » Way of the Gun Chapter 5

Chapter 4

Chapter 5: Back in the saddle

    Aww, mate! I swear, if I ever give up my life o' crime I'm movin' up here with these boys. They sure can party! I even got the pleasure of some post alchohol fun! Man, I love my job.

    So, I started the day by kicking lover boy outta bed, grabbin' a shower and eatin' breakfast with my mercs. Daye Bro, the cocky frakker I was thinkin' about shootin' a couple nights back, is one of the ten still on the Metatron, and I've banned 'em all from carryin' weapons in the common cabin in case their poker games turn ugly again. I might have to sit in myself one night and see ... Read more

X3TC » Way of the Gun Chapter 4


Chapter 4: Gone Fishin'

    Decided to take the day off from my regular 'kill 'n' steal' methods and do some scoutin' today. Before I called it a night yesterday I sent 'Small Fry', my little Octopus, off to Company Pride for some shields and software, and got it tuned all the way to max. Whilst she was busy getting fitted out I fixed up the Caiman as well and sent Creed off to OTAS for a couple more shields to get her ship-shape. I had an interestin' run in with one o' my mercs last night as well. Cocky frakker was a hair's breadth from gettin' shot. That said, if Yohandris hadn't ... Read more
