    I have been having a ball even with the Steam version, (I use it offline) and I am going by the book, no cheats, it is much slower having to build my Rep and a fleet but I am really enjoying this one.

    I just checked their sire and the boxed version required online activation. Looks like I will have to take up my free steam version after all if I decide to play it. At this stage I am holding out as I hate the idea of steam etc.

    Seems a bit of an about face considering they used to give out a patch to make their games protection free after a certain time. The good old days may be gone.

    Cheers MarkL

    I would double check that, I know I had to activate X3 TC online but I did not have to use Steam that was just to register my S/N with Ergosoft and so they could autoselect the updates I needed when I went to their download site. The activation still shows when I o to Ergosoft and it shows as X3TC Superbox on Steam, regardless I do not need to connect to Steam to place X3TC it was a one time connection for activation only.

    Now more news... X3 AP version 2.0 was just released, so Gig is off to download that now and go make some Xenon Space Dust - well I hope it's them and not me anyway...

    Here is the annoucement;

    Posted: Sat, 25. Feb 12, 01:08 Post subject: X3AP version 2.0 The war continues

    We are pleased to announce that X3: Albion Prelude 2.0 is now available! The latest update includes two new mini-plots and a number of additional features and bugfixes.

    One of the new mini-plots draws the Boron deeper into the war than ever before and provides the player with access to the mysterious Xenon HUB. The second re-introduces the secret Unfocussed Jumpdrive and the mighty Player Headquarters, the latter providing a new function to easily equip newly built or bought ships a function that all fleet commanders will no doubt appreciate.

    With the ongoing war and the associated investment in new assets, it's no surprise that the various races have come up with a new type of ship to support their war fleets. With version 2.0 the X-Universe sees the first examples of this new category of fast, light escort carrier. If you are too busy doing other things to follow the regular war reports, version 2.0 brings a function to disable these reports until you want to take part in the war again. In addition, new graphs give you a better overview of your property and your current progress. We also have good news for all Polish players, as X3AP version 2.0 will include a complete Polish text translation.

    As well as adding new content and features, the latest development also eradicated some of the most annoying bugs. Amongst others, the problem of ships forgetting their commands and some related bugs with the Rapid Response fleets have been fixed. As usual the complete changelog can be found in the documents folder of your X3: Albion Prelude installation directory.

    X3: Albion Prelude 2.0 is available now for download over Steam. The Steam client will automatically update your game to the latest version, provided it has not been configured to prevent this.

    New Features and Improvements:

    - New mini-plot: The HUB
    - New mini-plot: Player HQ and UFJD
    - New ships
    - New graphs
    - Added option to disable war reports
    - Megalodon and Xenon I rebalanced and adjusted
    - Introduced setup time for new lasertowers
    - Made USC Baldric Miner available for purchase
    - New sector music tracks in certain sectors
    - Prevent purging all marines, so theres always some available
    - Improved UI handling of typing repeated letters in text fields
    - Improved graph axis display to use round numbers where possible

    - Added achievements for new mini-plots
    - Added war missions to stats export
    - Added new script commands to support new graphs
    - Added script command to get complex hangar of factory
    - Added missing beacon, drone and mine classes to script editor class list
    - Added <set_notoriety> action to Mission Director for setting notoriety between non-player races
    - Added {object.realigntime@hub} variable for Mission Director for next available HUB gate realignment
    - Added hue/saturation global parameters for "spare" races for use by modders

    Fixes:

    Smile marklaur - here you go - no excuse now :)

    Update***

    Requirements

    Both the X3: Albion Prelude Add-on and the Terran War package will require you to install the Steam client in order to be able to install and play the game(s). Note that if you already have a Non-Steam version of X3: Terran Conflict then you can register it with Steam to get a Steam version. If you have any questions about the installation process, or about Steam in general, we recommend having a look at our new Steam FAQ section. It covers the most common questions about Steam and gives useful tips that will hopefully make your experience with Steam and the X-series games an enjoyable one.

    A NoSteam executable for version 2.0 of X3: Albion Prelude will be made available for those who have technical issues relating to ongoing Steam connectivity after installation.
