X-tended mod for X3: Terran Conflict (for those that have/play X3)

Trolldefender99Trolldefender99 Member UncommonPosts: 416

I've been looking forward to the new patch for ages :D It will probably be released by end of next week, but I dunno...that is the rumor. The mod itself is awesome, but won't be save game compatible with 2.0 of X-tended, so I haven't played. But I bought X3 on sale on Steam the other day, so now I can play.

 

X3 is a beautiful game as I'm sure many of you are aware...X-tended makes it even prettier. Best looking space game out, imo. The game itself is rather fun too, for a singleplayer sandbox game. But with mods, its WAY better.

 

Here is features of 2.0 X-tended

Out of those, I like that stations will have unique looks based on race...so all races have different looking stations, now. Before all races shared the same models.

 

I also like pirates build their own defenses/stations/forces...that is really neat, and should make playing as a pirate a lot better. 

 

and for those that don't know what the mod is about...

A general overview of all the current features. Definitely the best overhaul mod. X3 rebalance is good too, though.

 

Does anyone else around here play X3? Do you have any particular mod(s) you like? If you like sandbox space games, its probably a must have and you probably already play it...if you are into singleplayer games at all.

    No problem :D Yes, this is a sandbox in space :) No multiplayer at all, so keep that in mind.

     

    The game is very beautiful, and with graphics mods (whether stand alone or a part of an overhaul mod)...imo, they make it probably the most beautiful game out. All in the eye of the beholder of course, but X3+graphics enhancement mods, makes it look so amazing.

     

    Even vanilla X3 TC is pretty challenging to learn, but it is a lot of fun. And it is cool to build a space empire or/and ally with pirates and go pirating.

    The game is absolute awesome, but is also a black hole feeding on time, space, light and your soul.

    I jumped in with no manual or anything and it took me about 2 weeks to figure out the basics and the tons of small addons to get it all going. Software updates for my pilots, traders etc etc. My laptop run 24/7 in order to make money. It was an absolute thrill to command all the traders and watch them level up, hack abondened ships, command them to escort you while exploring or to patrol.

    If you seriously want to get into this game, better cancel all plans to ever leave your room again.

    I agree, This game is to Scifi what the Elder Scrolls is to Fantasy. Totally awesome game that will totally immerse you in it's Scifi Sandboxiness. I've played this game for hundreds of hours and there is still more I could do. Simply amazing game.
