X3: Terran Conflict Rolling Demo

A rolling demo for X3: Terran Conflict is now available, offering a look at the latest installment in EGOSOFT's space combat series. This should not be confused with a playable demo, as a rolling demo is non-interactive, offering the chance to see what the game looks like using the actual game engine. As such this rolling demo can also benchmark your system to show how it can handle running the game. The 422 MB download is available on AtomicGamer, ComputerGames.ro, FanGaming, FileFront, Gamer's Hell, and Strategy Informer. X3: Terran Conflict was released a couple of weeks ago, and can be purchased through Steam.

But that's a level of detail that people don't really want. My ship properties screen is already two pages long, I REALLY don't want it to become four. If I really need to find out where a ship is sold, I'll look it up in the argonopedia (which is now ingame and is an absolute blessing.)
No, it wouldn't become any longer. I was talking about a mouse click menu on the object in the in-game Encyclopedia that would give you those options. When you clicked on the appropriate option it would give you the screens I referred to. It would link to the Properties screen but filter it to the ship type you chose, or link to the Universe map and jump to the first sector that has a shipyard selling the ship.

Does that make sense? It wouldn't be an additional level of detail, it would be a way of linking to other screens without having to go there manually. The key thing is that it would be an extra option to use, and not show up unless you clicked on it.
