DO NOT GET THE DLC!
If you've never played this, do NOT get the DLC! If you do, you will be unable to actually play, as there's a bug that makes the very first mission fail to work if you have the DLC. You can't even go sandboxy and forget the missions, as it refuses to let you do that until you've done the mission.

This was reported on the official forums (not by me, even), got an official response that they'd look into it, and that was October. Considering it is now January, and there's been no update, I guess they just don't care to fix their game so that new purchasers can actually play it.

The workaround on the forum is to uninstall the game, and reinstall without the DLC. Fat luck that'll do you on Steam, since DLC's are auto-downloaded, huh?

Ah, too late for me, but I can confirm the bug and the lack of a fix for steam users.

Totally agree. Under NO circumstances buy the DLC when you purchase this game, it breaks the second main quest mission, and since you cant play the DLC until you complete the main game, you've just wasted all your money.

THE DLC CRIPLES THIS GAME!

The game just patched and the bug is gone. The ship you are following now uses the jump gate like it was supposed to and the game can be continued.

I guess I got the game after it was patched. Timebreach was installed and nothing crashed

Were there actually people who sat down, played this, and decided they would spend more money on more of it? I can't understand that.

It obviously isn't your type of game....just because you don't like it, doesn't mean its crap...its just not your cup of coffee.

I paid 25 bucks for that piece of crap, I'm gonna get my enjoyment out of it somehow.

well obviously if you hate the game and everything in it you should kill all the stations, miners, freighters, police, scientists and everyone in it for the pure enjoyment factor... and then wish for the ability to build your own stations out of minable resources and junk.

And then go play X3, as it has that.

I crash every time I try to use the Transporter Button (even in the Tutorial). The Steam System announced "two faulty Files" which it the downloaded and pronounced OK... but, after I play they are once again flagged as wrong. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Game, giving it compatibility in Win8 with WinXP+SP3 and Administrator Rights... but nothing works! Is there any Game Wizard out there who knows how to fix this?

Play a different game. Problem solved, and you're playing a better game.

"But," you say, "what if I play Daikatana or something?"

Still playing a better game than this one!

Not ride to hell though, that game beats all others in how bad it is!
