And here is some more info on the patch itself: ( http://www.egosoft.com/x/xnews/201010_1_44News.html )
In a fresh update to X3: Terran Conflict, developed specially to coincide with the release of the long-awaited Superbox, we have developed a new adventure, which will pit the player against the might of one of the universe's superpowers in a covert powerplay that, if discovered, may tip the finely poised Balance of Power that exists in the X Universe, leading to all-out conflict. You will be sent on top secret missions to acquire lucrative technology, risking all for a chance to taste forbidden fruit.
Also in Update 3.0 we are introducing a more substantial reward for completion of the long and arduous Operation Final Fury, the campaign to finally rid the X Universe of the Kha'ak infestation. We acknowledge the hard work that players invest into completing this plot and the feedback players have provided with regard to its reward. We're very pleased, therefore, that all players completing the plot will now receive this new reward as well as those players for whom Operation Final Fury is but a distant memory!
As we've previously mentioned in the X Universe News, we've been working on a new Dead-is-Dead mode for X3: Terran Conflict. That work is now complete and we're happy to say that this new feature is available to players who play the game via the Steam client. Remember that if you own the DVD version of X3: Terran Conflict, you can register it with Steam to enjoy both Dead-is-Dead and Steam Achievements.
Any ideas what the Dead is Dead mode is?
I believe in "Dead is Dead" mode, if you are destroyed, you have to start over. I think you can save the game, but if you are killed, you cannot load that one again.
I have to read on that as well. But that is definitely a tough game mode to complete the game in.
Any one tried this, ❓ sound like it could make the incredibly dull X universe a bit more interesting bit of a shame that there just empty sectors.
Your right Pinback, this mod could really make X much more interesting, with growing universe around you. It would add the "unknown factor" to the game making exploration something worthwhile.
