I just saw there was a "room" here for X3. I bought X3 Reunion two years ago and checked it out but put it away. I dont have Terran Conflict yet. I am open to expanidng ..as i love space sims, have done Homeworld which was nice but a but unreal, Freespace 1 and 2 which were also nice but a but too much zippy combat for my skill set, Freelancer which i got tired of the weird debris that was all over the universe, and a bit too unrealistic for the space ...so far, the one game that i really felt like i WAS in space was Tacyhon and they never did a sequel as had been hoped..and the ships you can control never got up to the largest. Battlecruiser Gold had a lot of optoins but the graphics were way tooo old to really enjoy. I have all the star wars space sims and have studied them and the mods but they dont really have that much depth to them after the Star Wars glow fades. Some are better than others, and the graphcis got pretty good, but I enjoy a larger universe.
I am open to returning to the X3 universe, just wanted to see if you guys think my system will run it worth the investment of time and effort..
I have an AMD 3400 2.6 ghz with 3 GB of RAM and an FX7600GT vid card.
It is a healthy machine and runs all the FS series up to X with lots of stuff on it, though NOT the highest settings. I do love space and would love to have a chance to explore and enjoy a really BIG universe. any thougts?
