Can't you also build an armada of followers? I don't mind flying just one ship if it's highly upgradable and I can send minions out to trade, mine, fight, etc.

Yeah that's how it is going to work You can hire people that do jobs for you, and captains that work for you and fly your massive cap ships. They'll do what you tell them to do and that even without you being there to tell them exactly. So you can order your mining vessels to "go there, mine stuff then bring it to my factory" and they will do that. If you tell squad of fighters to "defend the mining vessel" they will defend it until you stop the order.

+ you can find stuff on the stations and ships you can dock with, people that want to work for you, or jobs you can do for people. Traders and wares, and probably even some more unique stuff. So exploration should pay off.

We'll see in a few hours whether that's true or not, but I am hyped...

Wasn't this in alpha like a month ago?


=-Rigs-=

You don't need much of an alpha for something that is essential a game where you play using "facebook" in space. Addictive... but also Facebook. And you'd have to pay me to use facebook, in game or otherwise

Stream usually does Noon pst.

Really? Ugh, I hope they don't wait that long, I have to go out that night.

Game unlocks 15th 13:00 GMT +1 according to dev on forums. Steam counter is irrelevant, devs can trigger unlock whenever they want.

But I am not sure this applies to all the game versions and regions.

They had joystick support in X2 and it was pretty broken. Lots of complaints about stuff not working, patches breaking things, etc. So if I'm not mistaken, they took joystick support out of X3. I honestly have no idea if it's back in or not (or never left.)

They didn't take joystick support out - that's how I played all of the X games. Never had a problem using the joystick either, even with X2. Not sure if I just got lucky or not, but I'd never try playing it with kb/m.

Yeah but if strafing is a control method, I cant see how that would work with a joystick well...or actually at all?? Wouldnt this lead to combat that would basically be two spacecraft circle-strafing and facing each other ALL the time and holding down the fire button. Dunno sounds kind of fucked up and stupid in an open space game, but what the hell do I know...

Not pre-ordering, resisting the urge. Waiting for some comments on here at least first.

Tomorrow you will have your reviews

that said, there are joysticks that have rotation functions aside from the normal directional axis.... though maybe you want to bind strafe to pedals? That'd be kinda neat actually. Though you'd still have to manage thrust.

The sad thing is that I am this >_< close to believing that. ^^ With our shitty ISP's it's a wonder the internet even works as it does.

Now the Telekom wants to create a "European Internet" ... wtf? As if the English and French spy agencies were any better than the NSA! It just makes it easier to spy on us, not harder!

Doesn't help that the story sounds so cliché that even reading about it bored me to death.. twice. I was ressurected by a dancing pony though, with only condition that I not buy this game. I agreed!

6. What about the terrible new video quality? Nov 12, 2013, 01:38 eRe4s3r
 
Because the change nobody seems to be talking about, is that Youtube broke encoding and offers terrible quality in 720p. With clear encoding artifacts and blocking. (Wasn't there before!)

I can't even watch let's plays anymore properly unless I go to 1080p (which loads about as fast as a rock rolls uphill)

more than that, they need 90% under priviliged slaving away or the entire capitalist bullshit construct would fall apart.

Remind me again why we should stop climate change. Let it kill humanity. Nothing of value would be lost to the universe.

But nothing you do will protect you from flooding. Not living there seems like a better choice.

I suppose someone should tell all the people in southeast Asia who live in stilt housing that's the case.

Topsider Hurricane Proof Houses

Stilt Housing

"This is a travel video showcasing the incredible Kampong Ayer (also known as the world's largest water stilt village) located in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei. http://nomadicsamuel.com : Kampong Ayer, or the Water Village (Malay: Kampong Ayer) is an area of Brunei's capital city Bandar Seri Begawan that is situated after the Brunei Bay. 39,000 people live in the Water Village. This represents roughly ten percent of the nation's total population. All of the Water Village buildings are constructed on stilts above the Brunei River.
Built entirely of stilt houses and wooden w
alkways, this cluster of 42 villages housing more than 30,000 inhabitants is the world's largest water village. Some people refer to it as the 'Venice of the East'."

Gentlemen, there are plenty of much cheaper, much more eco-friendly, viable alternatives for housing in any of those sorts of zones. Plenty!

But flooding damages the infrastructure all the same. What's the point having a house that takes 0 damage, when everything around you is destroyed? Most Phillipines will die because of sickness and starvation (and the inevitable riots and crimes caused by that). You could argue that your idea makes survival rates better, but if those few survivors have food only for themselves..... ehm.. yeah.

No, the smarter idea is to not live in a region that's hit by the strongest Taifuns all the time. ^^

On that note: I don't disagree with you, of course there are better housing solutions that are more secure and much more eco friendly. The real question is why you would build them in a region that's hit by massive storms every year. There is such a thing as "moving out of the way" and it's a lot cheaper and eco friendly.

Ps.: Check wikipedia if you don't believe me, every 2 to 3 years a massive storm hits the phillipines.

Windows is dying.

7 is good for another 10 years.

Agreed, long enough to skip the turd that has been floating around most recently and hope that Windows 9 isn't more of the same.
MS's track record is good win, bad win, alternating, so its not a bad call to wait for win 9.

The cycle resets with new CEO's... so it will be bad again with Windows 9

Just connect to steam with a euro ip, its what i do with 99% of all the releases that come out but vpn to the states (in germania).

Its the exact opposite situation for me with Xcom Enemy Within, and you can be damn sure i'm unlocking that puppy as soon as its unlockable

May I ask what VPN specifically you are using?

Boleh VPN

It has connections to USA/Canada/Netherlands/UK/Germany/Switzerland/Luxembourg/Sweden/France/Hong Kong

the company is based out of Malaysia, they also do not keep ip connection details, and several users share the same ip when connecting, which makes it almost impossible to track someone down for something just like say torrenting (which is a big no no in germany btw where i am...). I've had no problems with Netflix and unlocking anything on steam. I'm on a 30mbit down 10mbit up connection and i get a steady 25-30 down and 10 up, just about anywhere i connect. Up until NFL turned it off for everybody i was getting free NFL game pass by connecting to the netherlands (but once it hit week 9 they stopped the freebies for netherlands/new zealand etc. the countries that didnt have an nfl deal) I'm guessing they'll turn it back on next year for the 1st half of the season.

If your interested here's my sign up link: bolehvpn i'll get some free time and so will you (wont cost any different for you, if you do or dont use it, just more free time).

Anyways i really recommend it, they've been excellent.

Thanks for the link We'll see if there is ever a case where a delayed release / region block bothers me enough to use it

Ah HAH! So thats why Rebirth isnt in the top 10

It's more that most fans buy it directly from Egosoft's store (I did, for example) so those sales don't show up in Steam's top 10. Also, for whatever reason, a large section of the X fans seem wildly opposed to Steam.

Mhh I bought from Egosoft's store and got a Steam key the minute I paid via paypal + soundtrack DL back a month ago.

Maybe Steam just doesn't count these activations anymore as sales, because indeed, steam get's mostly nothing from that purchase

I am sure my single preorder makes all the difference lol
I am looking forward to the player feedback on here.

You can rest assured you will see at least mine come the 16th.. they said the Steam Countdown is not when it will unlock (It will unlock earlier, most likely midnight on the 14th) or thereabouts.

And I will not hold back if it has problems. I loved X3 and I hated it at the same time I have it pre-loaded and all....
