Once you get the springblossom in TC you're set for the rest of the game.

I am looking forward to Star Citizen. I loved Freelancer, spent quite a bit of time on the open servers online, even if there's hardly anyone on. I play through the single player every few years just because it's so much fun. My favorite system was Texas. One big flipping radioactive debris cloud.

I must try this X3:TC.

Nah man the old school 4.83 alien organisms trade route from Planet Cambrige to Sigma 17. Took you through some beautiful systems like the one with the neutron star.

The Nomad worlds are some of the most beautiful systems though like Omicron Iota.

Of course i'm talking Freelancer Discovery mod here.

Oh yea, in Discovery the Nomad systems were the best. But for spooky ambiance, little beats the eerie silence of Texas, with the occasional electrical storms. I always hung out with the Junkers at Beaumont Base.

I hated the Cambridge to Sigma 17 route. I'm trying to remember the route I came up with so I could get a Firefly-class ship in Discovery. Wound up cranking it all out in one night of caffeine and addiction.

Edit: I think I ran Cardamine (**** the police) from Omicron Alpha to Planet Manhattan, at $1200 profit per unit, and I think Luxury Consumer Goods from Planet Manhattan to Ainu Depot for $1250 per.

Yeah i played discovery till about the middle of 4.84 when they came up with the tons of rules about what you could and couldn't trade and all the weapon rules. After that i got annoyed and quit. The energy drain during hyper drive was the final straw since it made pve farming boring. Had a corsair battleship with the max armor and an osiris again with the max armor.. mk 7 or whatever it was for 800 mill. After that my account got wiped since i stopped logging in.

My advice is to get one of the ownerless trading ships. There is a good one in Menelaus' Frontier.

Universe map X3 Terran Conflict / X3 Terran Conflict (X3TC)

I'd suggest getting some salvage insurance if you've never claimed a ship before.

When you enter the sector go to the coordinates 43, -7, 35. Save using the salvage insurance. Stop your ship, exit it, then go close to the abandoned ship like 30m or something, click on it to claim it. Now that ship is yours. Give it the trading extension 3. That extension is 501k and is available in teracorp HQ in home of light. Toss it in a safe system like home of light and have it start the sector trader.

This is the basic automated trader. Eventually when you're not hurting for money you can take bigger risks and start with universe trader.

If you want to do the manual trader the trading extension 1 and 2 allows you to manually tell your ship where to go and drop off/pick up. The trading extension 1 and 2 allows you to buy and sell to a station from the remote ship (aka player ship).

IMO its best to start out with the sector trader while you carry on with the Terran missions.

More ownerless ships. (I do not recommend selling them as theres no other way to get those exact ships in the game)

Yeah I havent quite gotten to 500k credits yet. I'm still trying to figure out how the dick just to use parts of the game. Like even setting up a manual run, no idea how to get to that screen.

And what system is that ship in at those coordinates.

And how do I go to a set of coordinates, or know what the coordinates are.

How do I leave my ship, is it just hit the eject button?



Because nothing else does. I'm getting to the point where I'm just clicking on random **** and hitting buttons to figure out what **** does and how to get into things.

LoL No problem. For now just focus on getting the terran conflict missions done.

I'll tell you anyways though.
Press R. That is the screen with all of your ships and stations. You will have very few (1 or 2) and probably wont be able to remote control stuff just yet.

Click on this link. This is the entire map of the game. Universe map X3 Terran Conflict / X3 Terran Conflict (X3TC)

Press the keyboard button , or . one opens the sector map. The other opens the universe map.
You will need to find where you are and how to get to sector Menelaus' Frontier using the map in the link above. Its on the left (purple)

Once you get to the Menelaus' Frontier sector, open the sector map. Hoover the mouse over your ship. You will see coordinates on the map screen. Search for the above coordinates.

Disclaimer: I have no idea WTF Star Citizen is, nor am I likely to invest any effort at all into finding out.

But listening to some of the tank here reminds me of a slightly older online multiplayer spacefaring game that I used to really be into:









My roommates and I spent months mapping out the galaxy by hand in pencil on the walls of the apartment we shared in college.

In retrospect, that time might have been better spent...

Oh the system is called menelaus' frontier. I thought thats what the ship I was trying to salvage was called.

I'm more concerned about how to see the prices of goods at other stations.

to see the prices of goods at other stations, pull up a map of your sector and use the arrow keys and enter to select a station. If you wish to see the prices of goods in other sectors, you must have a remote ship or satellite located in that sector.

The trading system extension allows you to command a remote ship in any sector to trade with a remote station at which it is docked. It is so necessary that I refuse to pilot a ship without it.
