If you are looking for a space sandbox this is it. Trade, fight, build an empire.. I have given the X games thousands of hours over the years. This one over a thousand. The learning curve can be a challenge but I think is well worth the effort. The community is solid and mods though some dated and unavailable are still abounding.

If you can get it for a good price... go for it.

Speaking of mods, here is the community page listing the mods for all the v ersions of the games: http://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=216690

The main page: http://www.thexuniverse.com/forum.php

If you want some other links to some of the modding sites just get hold of me or go searching.
We are all just waiting for Rebirth to be realsed at this point.

Just remember, you can't get achievements using most MODS...

Pros: excellent trading game; ability to play while semi-afk; Random economic system create a sense of realism
Cons: slow paced can be very slow if u r a RTS player; clocked 105 hours in this game still not good at combat (maybe just me)

This is true as if you look at my profile I only have one. I run a modified game and just don't care if I get the Steam achivements. But a great point! If you want achivements don't mod!

Good points as well. Combat involving capital ships are a laugh as they appear to attempt to act like fighters when being dsispatched by AI. Unless your running a good system with a nice framerate the combat at times gets choppy if you have too many ships on the filed. I use SETA often and Remote Trade and other automated trading scripts to dispatch my freighters.
