    Can’t wait for your review. I really wonder if they managed to at least partially remove some of the suck of the original game.

    Its a start Brian, it has the potential to be a cracking game, they must have been a bit worried about a couple of decent stonkers coming out soon eh? Say noah more squire, nudge nudge wink wink, know what I mean squire lol

      I’ve spent some time with the 2.0 release.

      And… it’s not eaxtly great, but definitely better.
      – The graphics are a bit better, and it feels way smoother (thought I did finally switch the gfx card, so how much of that is the result of 2.0 fixes, I can’t tell)
      – There are new cockpits mods that you can buy and install in the Skunk. They are actually pretty decent!
      – There’s a working radar. Together with the new cockpits, it definitely helps with situational awareness.
      – The combat is rebalanced and it can actually be a bit hard (as opposed to flying Invincible Skunk of Doom in 1.x)
      – You can contact anyone in the station from the comfort of the Skunk’s cockpit. The game also keeps the database of all the people in the entire station – so you can, for example, select a station, select a mechanic and the game will direct you to the correct docking port.
      – There are new missions, but I haven’t encountered them yet.
      – There’s an autyopilot for the Skunk. Oh, autopillock, how I missed ye!
      – There are targeting controls, but they’re so… God… damn… fiddly!

      So, definitely not yet approaching the level of X:Terran or X:Albion (especially now that X:A just got a new big mod), but I like the way it is going.

      Of course next week is Arena Commander week, so Rebirth might go back on the virtual shelf :)

    Hi gorkomatic, with the new X:A mod, do you mean Litcube’s Universe? It’s the only mod I found being mentioned in the Steam forum for X:A.

    framerate is still garbage even on minimum settings, game’s still unplayable as far as I’m concerned.

Chime In!
