The X3: Terran Conflict 2.5 update is now available to download. As you have come to expect, this update brings new features, improvements and bugfixes. On top of that, Copy Protection has been removed!

It has now been a year since X3: Terran Conflict went gold and we hope you have enjoyed the ride so far. In 2.5 we have included several improvements to excite moguls and battle-masters alike as Complexes and Marines receive new features to aid in their management. Also, as many of you have experienced, keeping track of a huge fleet of Fighters, Freighters and Marines can be a mind boggling task. That is why we have added new filter and sorting options to the property menu, as well as a whole page dedicated to Marines.

There are many other improvements and fixes in 2.5 which are listed in the change log. Bored Universal Traders no longer stray into Xenon Sectors looking for trouble and the long standing Flak Misfire issue has been addressed by Commonwealth weapon engineers. Older savegames can also expect a nice performance boost as a memory leak has been fixed.

With the Copy Protection removed, DVD users can now play without the DVD and Online Activation users no longer need to worry about how many times they reinstall.

Terran Conflict players who bought their game from Steam are reminded that their Steam client will automatically update the game and that there is no need to download the patch from Egosoft.com.

Interview with Bernd Lehahn (Managing Director EGOSOFT)

03.09.2009 - X News

Below you can read an interview (GameFocus) with Bernd Lehahn (Managing Director EGOSOFT):



What started as something very trivial with two and three persons has become very popular among our friends in the gaming industry. With our "Up Close with..." interview concept, we want to show the readers that the gaming industry is filled with passionate people and that we can interview someone about something else than sales, firings, competitions and flaming subjects.

This week's "Up Close with" interview features Bernd Lehahn, Managing Director of EGOSOFT .

Enjoy!

----------------------------------------------------------------------

What was your first memory of a videogame?

Oh I would have to cheat to answer that question by sorting all my favorite arcade machines from my youth in the MAME emulator by date of creation. The result of this gives the Atari Asteroids arcade machine from 1979. The true "from top of my head" answer on the other hand, gives a mixture of home videogame systems. I didn't own any of them, but was a huge admirer of the technology. I remember being very impressed by a simple "PONG" like videogame (self soldered electric device with all game logic in hardware) and used every chance I had to get my hands on an Atari VCS 2600.


There's always something that makes you say: "this is what I want to do for the rest of my life". What made you realize that?

Not one single moment. My school newly introduced computer classes in the early 80s and it was a very easy way to get good grades. Later I wrote a little "Time Pilot" clone for the TI-99/4a and greatly enjoyed playing my little creation. So my hobby slowly grew into my school life and later into a job.


If you had to create "the ultimate game" what would it be?

Probably just the "ultimate" version of what we do already - the PERFECT space simulation game. You can go everywhere, be everybody, do everything and always have a lot of fun. Sounds simple enough to do, right? Well, we are on the job...stay tuned ;-)


You're leaving for a space trip and you have to bring only one game and one videogame character with you, it would be?

One game for all eternity? Probably something simple, like a good chess computer then. As for the character I would probably choose Lara Croft. Not a big fan of Tomb Raider, but definitely prefer Lara over the likes of Sonic or Mario ;-)


If you had one tip to give to someone who wants to start working in the industry, what would it be?

Dare to be innovative.


One silly personal factoid about you?

I just returned to playing "Donkey Kong" again after watching "The King of Kong", just to find out that I cannot even beat the scores of my childhood, not to mention those shown in the movie.


What are you playing now?

WipeOut HD, Guitar Hero World Tour...oh and Donkey Kong of course.


On which project are you working now and what can you tell us about it?

See above. The ultimate space simulation game ;-)

X3: Terran Conflict 2.1 released

10.06.2009 - Game News X3 Terran Conflict

The much anticipated 2.1 update, which features a host of new content, is now available to download from Egosoft.com.

A couple of months have passed since Terran Conflict 2.0 was released around the world and particularly for the first time in the United States. We welcome any new fans who have recently discovered the X-Universe. In keeping with Egosoft’s commitment to post-release support and enhancement of our games, we’re very happy to announce the release of the 2.1 update.

Update 2.1 features the Treasure Hunt Mission, created by a group of mission programmers from our community. The mission will have you searching for a stolen carrier, its crew and its precious and unique cargo. Also, after several years of ignoring petitions, the Commonwealth Economic Body has finally approved the creation of Large Crystal Fabs, available to all industry moguls across the universe. In military news, industry giant, Bala Gi Research, has taken a lucrative contract to improve enemy-detection algorithms in sensor systems, boosting Sector Patrol efficiency. As a result, several Spaceweed companies have taken out additional insurance policies on their freighters.

Again, the DevNet testers have been hard at work making sure that this update reaches you in the best condition possible. A big thanks to all who have helped in its development. Other features of the update include a performance boost, the functionality for the game to continue running while in windowed mode or minimised, improved tractor beam tow behaviour, additional marine information in several menus and several ships tweaked.

Terran Conflict players who bought their game from Steam are reminded that their Steam client will automatically update the game and that there is no need to download the patch from Egosoft.com.

There is additional news on X3: Terran Conflict 2.1, as well as other news, in Edition 37 of the X-Universe News.
