I can't believe no one made a thread about this game yet and it has been out for almost exactly a month. It is vastly improved over X3: Reunion in areas that need it like UI layout. It also sounds like they added a whole lot of M7 class ships which IMO, are the best. They also made it easier to find jobs and control large fleets of aircraft (dubbed "Wings"). In short, if you loved X3: Reunion, you'll love X3: Terran Conflict. Only four problems I see so far: 1) It should autosave when changing sectors but doesn't. 2) Some sort of progress display on loading saves and transition between sectors. It doesn't even have something spinning/moving to let you know that its working. This makes me quite nervous. 3) It has very aggressive DRM know as Tagès. It reeks of Star Force 3 (installs drivers/root kits, has lots of false positives, etc.) but, at least Egosoft is good about releasing patches to remove the DRM after a few months. 4) It is only available on Steam in most cases; however, Amazon has a UK DVD version available. They say it doesn't have any region code in it so it's safe for someone in USA to buy and install it.
