Thanks Blake. Very poor connection here at the moment. Will read outside daylight hours and get back to you.
…… that's better.
" …... So if Wombat wants to play a sandbox exploring and trading game …….. "
Sorry...… what is a sandbox game ?
" ……. without fighting anyone he could do it just fine in them. He's talked about doing that in FL and FL is exactly the same ….. "
Just to be fair, I did play the campaigns in both FL and CF2.0 and really enjoyed them. But it was the opportunity (for me) to become totally neutral by completing the campaigns that appealed to me. If I have to complete a campaign or campaigns, then mod my game to achieve neutrality, I'm happy to do it, as I did with CF2.0. It appears in ED that maybe you don't have to complete the campaign(s) to achieve neutrality. I understand there will be factions and pirates, etc that I will not be able to befriend unless I tweak my game as I did with CF2.0. Remember I'm only interest in SF. If playing MP my task would be hopeless as it would be in the real world. I've been watching Drew Wagar's "ED Lore Tour Series" and loving it! He's not been shot at once …….. yet! (Up to Episode 2). He gets "bumped" about a bit, which would really piss me off, but Drew just laughs it off !
"With X3R ..……… With X3TC …….. "
I'm running with X4-Foundations. I think because Steam told me I'd spent 177 hours (I think) training in the X4 environment. (I could take-off, launch, return and land for my efforts.) So I hope your X3 experiences accompany me in X4.
" …..... With X3R I setup shop building stations and trading ships in the Argon systems (especially presidents end as its nice and empty thanks to the Khaak in X2 haha) and I was never attacked. ……...Not one of my ships or stations got attacked.. after the constant danger in X2 I was really shocked with how I was never in danger unless I did a mission or visited an enemy home system in X3 ……. "
I like this. Hope I can repeat the same in X4.
" ……. Here's some I've been told about and will add to my list but I haven't tried them yet …….. "
Thanks for the list. I'm setting up my Tablet to try them all. I'm keeping my CF2.0 version on my Notebook. Don't want anything contaminating that.
Thank for the lengthy post. Just what I needed to get my spirits up.
