    X3 Patrol Logs

    Hey all,

    I wanted to start a new post for X3 pilots, but one that is just (just) logs. Anotherwords, Pireps or reports. just flights. Not really a questions and answers but rather a 'what I did tonight on X3' flights missions.. I thought it would be fun to hear what all people do in this game. Kind of lets us compare notes in a way.

    When writing these, try to sound as realistic as possible. Like as though you were a real pilot / astronaught / fighter pilot / trader, and filling in normal paperwork.

    You can date these if you like for a bit of formality.

    Nothing spectacular, just tell us what you are did on a flight or mission.

    Posting pics would be great.

    This is not a 'everyday' thing.. Just for special flights and stuff, things happening, battles and dogfights, etc.

    My first report;

    Friday night; Departed in the Nemesis to hunt the Xenon 'Q' heavy raider. Searched along the west to east axis of the sector that has Patriarchs Conclusion. That was the last time I had seen it. I passed through the jump gates one at a time looking for the thing. While cutting through Sectors, I managed my freighter fleet, checking that their automated runs were working properly. I did this remotely.

    I didnt find the Q, so after a while I made the long jump back to Argon Prime and parked the Nemesis back at my HQ station.

    Question!

    It seems that there is enough "support", umm, interest in this game to warrent a separate forum for their discussions ... rather than clutter the Newshawks with this stuff.

    (that's right, I'm not a player of this game and have no interest in it ... sorry)

    Can we get Admin to put a new forum up for it?

    Thanks.

    Snuffy,

    That isnt a log..


    The Admin have enough going on handling all the forums here. I cant ask them to do that. Its only 2 posts going on X3. I cant see this hurting anything.

    Yeah, I'll give a hand too, if you need the help.

    One question. How do you get the external views? I haven't found that yet.

    Hey Gary,

    F2 goes to external front/rear view. Click it once, rear view, click again, front view. Good for seeing who is chasing you. Click F1 to go back to cockpit. Click F1 to cycle through all available views. Some ships have left, right, top, bottom views, so F1 will cycle through them all. F2 goes straight to front or rear exterior view.

    NumPad + and - will zoom in and out.

    I've using F1 and F2 and have what you say....except for the external. I must be missing something somehow. I'll try again and do what you say Bill. Thanks.

    Wow this thread really got off topic fast.......

    Bill I think this is a great idea. I am not serious enough to post on most of the dedicated X3 forums around the web. Most of these places don't suffer fools...... I like the laid back atmosphere of the Outhouse and will definately start posting after action reports. I think it will be really neat knowing how other people play this wide open game.

    A new forum dedicated to X3 would be a great idea. The only reason I havn't started a couple of new threads is not to offend people like Snuffy whom seem to get a little upset when the Newshawks get over run with a new subject. I think the size alone of the addiction thread proves there is enough interest to warrant one. Hell it gets alot more post than the X-Plane forum. ( I love X-Plane and wish there were more post in that section) .

    Respect.

    One addition to this, once you are in any external view your POV hat will allow you to move all around your ship (you can sanp to the positions with the keys on the # pad to) and if you have a ship/station targeted you can get a nice close external of it with F3 and move all around it as well.
