    Thankyou so much for this, its made my day!


    OP, X3:TC is fantastic.
    When you get a mission, write down the basics of where you need to go as sometimes its not obvious when you look at the logs.

    I make notes of prices and available tech at each planet I visit on paper.
    It takes the mysticism out of where to go and where to get things cheap.
    To make this simpler, use lined paper or make your own layout to fill in on blank paper.

    There are websites that tell you anything about the game and you can cheat a little if you are having a hard time.

    Not to sound silly, but have you played starcraft 2 ? Its a scifi setting. DOW 1&@ aren't bad either.

    Last but not the least, try shattered horizon.

    try to get in to eve, do the tutorial, find a corporation that accepts beginners and trains them. you wont find a better game than eve in the space genre.

    It runs on single core and likes high MHz's...

    I talked with him on Steam. He does not like SC2, dont know why.
    He does have Warhammer 40k DoW + Winter Assault & Warhammer 40K DoW2 + expansion.

    Not a fan of base building on those games, so did like DoW2 more than first one.

    Did not talk about Shattered Horizon, but it's on his Steam account and 2,2h played.

    Anyways, some real time strategy games in space with big capital ships.

    Home World 2 would be awesome if you could buy it digitally.

    Just notice some nice looking game: Star Wars: Empire at War (79/100 on Metacritic).
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNoXYyxVWuU
    It does have ground battles, but it also has space battles with large ships.

    Other games I found:

    Lost Empire: Immortals Races 58/100
    http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/lost-empire-immortals/critic-reviews

    Space Rangers 2: Rise of the Dominators 84/100
    http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/space-rangers-2-rise-of-the-dominators
    Seems to be quite a hybrid game: Text adventure, real-time strategy, Space trading and combat simulator, turn-based strategy, shoot 'em up, role-playing game, third-person shooter.

    Distant Worlds 80/100
    http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/distant-worlds

    Armada 2526 64/100

    Well, runs quite well on my Nehalem too :nerd:

    He has ME1 & ME2. ME1 has 1.2h on Steam, might have passed other version of that game tough (Xbox?). ME2 has 18.2h on his Steam profile.

    It's damn hard to recommend game to him because he has **** loads of those, sometimes easier to look at his game list and say some game from there which he has not played. :D

    it runs fine on full L2 cache yorkfield too, i get 92fps on avg in that X3TC bench, but still it can crawl down to 23fps at one point in 1st part of the bench..

    when i mentioned SandyBridge, i had its 256bit AVX in mind - ~30% (or more) faster 128bit SEE executions make allot of difference in such single threaded apps, nehalem and yorkfield can't replace that with its 128bit :nerd:

    Second the recommendation of Space Rangers 2. Very interesting little game, sadly it was crippled by Starforce. It's available on Impulse now, sans the DRM.

    What about Eve are you finding difficult? I know there's a handful of Eve vets on these forums that would be happy to help if you detailed your problems.

    lol, no kidding. Right away I recommended the ME games, and he has played them both. If he has the genre mostly covered, better to tell us what he's already played! otherwise were all just throwing out repeats

    I'm not sure if this has been mentioned but Black Prophecy is going to be released this year sometime and it's going to be like Freelancer (or rather Freespace) but with next gen graphics. I looked at the youtube video and it looks pretty amazing :

    But the more recent video :

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rfJgfo3waY

    I haven't played an all out space game in a very long time. Last game was Free Space 2 and I enjoyed the hell out of that game. I'm really excited for this game.

    Yeah, sorry. Fighting against huge mother ships that are/were similar in size if not bigger than those in Freespace 2 is a definite win for me. Can't wait.
