X3 Reunion was released by Egosoft in November 2005 and has an expanded universe from previous editions of this game. This action and trading simulation gives you access to advanced economic concepts like the elasticity of demand, and you can either follow the given storyline or wander the universe and make your own way. Coordinates are set along an "X/Y/Z" axis and accessing the map will allow you to move a cursor to any location on the map.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Press "." to open your map. You'll see your current coordinates listed in the lower-right corner of the screen in an "X/Y/Z" arrangement. You will also be looking at the map from a top view.

  2. 2

    Use the numbers on the numerical keypad to move the cursor. You'll notice the coordinates in the lower-right corner changing as you move the cursor. Press "4" to move the cursor along the X-axis in the negative direction of the system and press "6" to move it in the positive direction. Press "2" to move the cursor along the Z-axis in the negative direction and press "8" to move the cursor in the positive direction.

  3. 3

    Press "Ins" to change the map to a lateral view so that you can move along the Y-axis. Press "2" to move it in the negative direction and "8" to move it in a positive direction. You can also change the X-axis settings in this mode by using "4" and "6," respectively.

Tips and warnings

  • You can minimise the zoom of the map by pressing "Home" and you can maximise the map by pressing "End." Your zoom goes to 50 per cent of the default setting and the maximisation can go to 25,600 per cent.
