X3TC » A station too far

During the past few days ive been building up my complex with my TL. In the end I wanted to create a complex which required no resources - ie. makes everything it needs itself.

The last bit of the puzzle was joining up two mines - an Silicon and Ore Mine L's (no point using M size mines, you wish you upgraded to L later). To do this I need a tractor beam, so I could pull the two mines closer to my complex - as they were too far to join with a complex construction kit:

The only race that sells them are the Paranid who I was trying to keep an enemy (started with the Bankrupt assassin). However this meant I had to be nice to them, so I could buy a couple of tractor beams. This was done with a few fight ... Read more

X3TC » The start of empire building

Today ive been looking at the M6+ ships, especially the Boron and Argon Heavy M6's. The Boron looks the best on paper, however its nice 10 million price increase seems very step. I couldnt decide which to pick: one side you got an all rounder, the other you got more cost.

So after awhile I though.. ah sod it! I brought a Split Elephant - at 17 million its not bad for a TL. Having your own TL allows you to get stations from shipyards and just jump them to where you want, instead of waiting ages for a NPC TL to reach your location. It also like a home - a cheap mobile HQ. Here's my new TL:

X3TC » Roguey in Q. Trouble

In the past few days ive restarted X3TC in vanilla, without any extra scripts. I started with the Bankrupt assassin and managed to get myself up-to a Split Dragon (M6). However when I do assassin missions, I now get 1 or 2 Xenon Q's! These Q's arent nice, they head directly for me!

My poor old Dragon cant take on one of them (maximum does like 10% shield damage) - basically they are too strong for my ship. The only way I get away from them is to either hide behind a station (in the vain hope they smash into it something) or keep jumping (hope a big ship comes).

I have enough money for a M6+ (Heavy) although I think ive decided on the Boron M6 Heavy - speed/turrets/turn speed. The Heavy Dragon ... Read more
