I was just curious what you all like most to do in X3. We seem to have 'favorite' fields of work...
I'll start. I have three.
I love finding ships for sale that are cheap and going in and repairing them and getting them running again. Sometimes I'll sell one, but usually I try to keep them all. The freighters keep pretty busy and run automated 'Universal Trader' routes continually.
Another is exploring. Love finding the good sectors and some awe inspiring views. Flying through a unknown Nebulae is like flying at night in a plane in the rain. Being over a huge planet with cloud systems and mountains is pretty cool to look at.
Lastly.... Rescuing.. I love to pounce on pirates right when they are in the middle of attacking innocents. Nothing like that feeling.
