I'm also looking forward to this, although ya i agree there probably will be bugs but i'm sure they will be patched. Also it will be interesting all the mods that come out for it.

I've played X3 for hundreds of hours and i dont think i did the campaign/tutorial once past like the 3rd mission or so. As for combat i almost always went the cockpit general way and just sat back and gave orders and watched the ensuing light show. Good fun.

One of the coolest things to do is to bring your carrier with 40 M3s, jump into a pirate sector and just tell your guys "Kill."

Not the most economical thing to do (those M3s, fully kitted out, cost about 4 million credits a piece, and you tend to lose at least 10 or so), but wiping half a hundred pirate scum out of the universe brings much much joy. And like you said, it's SO pretty to watch.

Absolutely, i forgot the names as its been years but i installed some mods that allowed you the take 'ownership' of a sector and actually have fluid wars with the major factions all attacking/defending and claiming ownership of new territory, was a total blast taking on major wars :), really hoping its natively in the game or a mod will follow soon that will enable such gameplay.
