Yeah, Gonna Write Soon (Diskpocalypse)

For some reason I thought “Diskpocalypse” was extremely funny when I wrote that in the title. Probably ’cause I just woke up. Also, I don’t know how many people will actually read this, as I’m not going to spam it on the X3 reddit, as it’s not directly related to X3, but includes X3 as a side. Continue reading

Dog Builds an Empire: X3 Albion Prelude Chapter 13

THE PARANID AREN’T PARANOID OF ME

Since playing last, my brain has been defragged and I’ve re-remembered what X3 is all about. One of my goals in X3 was to turn RioYeti Conglomerates into RioYeti Interspace, meaning I’d have my economic hands all over the galaxy. That means I need to build some stuff in other race’s territory. Continue reading

Dog Builds an Empire: X3 Albion Prelude Chapter Eleven

Just a quick note: I will be switching the release of new episodes to Sundays, as I’m lazy and that will give me more free time to write. Anyways, many of you probably have the weekends off from work or whatever, so you can read it right when it comes out.

I LIKE PASTA

This time, I manage to avoid detonating in space from rapidly expanding solar plant modules, or more likely in this case, to detonate in space from metal spaghetti ending up all over the flippin’ place.

I placed the hub correctly this time, and everything else was perfectly placed, for that matter.

And then I repeat it, making a nice, symmetrical complex, with the hub positioned in a manner which would minimize Discoverers running into everything, and more importantly (although less frequently) freighters running into everything. Continue reading

Dog Builds an Empire: X3 Albion Prelude Chapter Nine

THAT’S ONE TOILET ROLL YOU DON’T WANT TO MESS WITH

Actually, I had forgot that it was for a mission where you have to escort a Mammoth. Minor detail, not that exciting. I escorted it. Giant toilet roll of doom showed up. That’s the exciting part. I also believe I might have forgotten the mission about spying, but really, that was really boring as heck, and you guys will know what happens in that mission anyways most likely. You follow a ship. That’s pretty much what these early (maybe all of them?) story missions come down to. Really, you know it’s boring since I forgot it. Continue reading

Dog Builds an Empire: Albion Prelude Chapter Eight

I’m sorry for this coming THREE DAYS LATE. I’ve been real sick, but now I’m back to continue the series.

Also, I had some really cool screenshots of this, but they probably won’t be uploaded, at least for a little while, as I’ve switched PCs.

PATIENCE… MAKES YOU SIT AND DEAL WITH STUPID THINGS HAPPENING

I like SETA quite a bit. I had to endure not having SETA while my Heavy Centaur’s autopilot starts flying loops around a shipyard docking bay. Very. Slowly. But that was last chapter.

The Argon plot requires that the player “help with the war effort”. That sounds fun. Continue reading

Dog Builds an Empire: X3 Albion Prelude Chapter Seven

STOP BEING SO DARN JUMPY

It takes several jumps to return home, as a Discoverer doesn’t have that much cargo space. It’s literally meant to “Discover”, not “Travel”. The manufacturers wanted to make sure you saw everything in between your beginning and your destination. Continue reading
