Taipan 3000 has long been a popular game on PsychoGoldfish.com, but I was never really satisfied with the artwork, sound, and gameplay.

This is the long awaited revival of that classic, with all new graphics, story elements, all new combat engine and more!

-------------

Sorry about the debt due date glitch, it seems to be fixed now, but it may take a while before you see the changes since this movie has had so many views and needs to be manually verified by NG staff.

I notice a lot of people freaking out over the debt.

Dar Ghul is a loan shark. He only charges 3% per day unless you are late on a payment, then he jacks it way up and starts sending bounty hunters after you.

Tip #2: if you start with the 5 guns, you can sell them right off the bat for quick cash. As long as you use the smallest ship, you are too small of a target for pirates to care about.

and finally, I'll leak out ONE cheat code:
set your comapny name to 'pimp my ride' and you'll start with the best ship and a ton of guns that you can either sell or fight with.

Pretty nice remake, and I really like the addition of the quest line. The ship battles, however, are horribly tedious. This really needs an option to disable all animations just to make those more fluent.

Looks like the "Sun spaceport" cheat from the original still works in this version, though it seems to put you really far away from all planets, instead of exactly in the center. To get to the Sun Spaceport, right at the start of the game, when you're still in New Terra, right click and press Play. You'll figure it out from there ;)

For those who are wondering... this is the full Taverns quest line:
-New Terra Tavern (I think the Oridia one doesn't trigger unless you did the tavern introduction here)
-Oridia
-Cerribus (Wygar Darkstrum)
-El Libre (Noahha)
-Rakken (Jaenna)
-Cerribus -> Pay 10k to Wygar
-Der'Kuhl (Shein Liang)
-New Terra -> Pay 50k to Balharg
-Rakken (fetch Jaenna)
-New Terra -> meet up with Balharg
-Der'Kuhl (rescue Shein Liang)
-New Terra -> Dar Ghul

Taipan 3000 SE is an outer space game classic game. Balancing out trading and making a profit has never been so fun. Battles are okay, but they could be improved. Keep up the good work.
