Terran Start?

Posted 1 month ago.

Hi, I was just wondering if X3:FL has a Terran start for story mode (hidden?). I completed the plot as a Boron and I've been playing around in the sandbox start for Terrans but got a bit disappointed when I saw that the gate to the Sol system is closed off. I really enjoyed playing as the Terran Commander in X3:AP and wanted to continue along that line. Am I out of luck or do I need to unlock something in order to play as a Terran with access to the Sol system? I know you can unlock Terran plot in story mode. Does that then allow a Terran start for story mode? If not, is there a way to reconnect the Sol gate in sandbox mode? Thanks in advance!

edit: just realized I can start as a Goner. Which is almost as good, so I'm cool even if there isn't a strictly 'Terran' start in story mode.

Hi, thanks for the reply and the info. Sadly this actually means the answer to my question is "no, there is not a Terran start for Story Mode."

I was already playing the Terran spy in Sandbox mode and the Terracorp Test Pilot is actually an Argon start in Sandbox mode. Very sad, but I ended up starting Story Mode as a Goner and I'll just progress until I unlock the Earth sectors. Also sad to see that Aldrin, Segaris, etc seem to have been completely removed. I'm loving an update to this game after all this time just sad that it seems to be a little anti-terran... (if you're wondering why it matters to me, it's that all the commonwealth factions engage in slavery while the Terrans, miraculously, do not engage in slavery. This makes Terrans the obvious good guys in the X universe.)
