The Babylon 5 X3 mod is a total conversion for X3TC; turning it into the Babylon 5 universe.
We've taken information from all sources, cannon, Mongoose as well as our own imaginations (were required by omissions) in order to create the Babylonian Universe as best as we possibly can.
All ships within the game are flyable - albeit some you're unlikely to get hold of; cheating not withstanding. Every cannon ship is in, stations as well as hyperspace and a few surprises along the way.
First full release is out there, with the potential for 'tweaks' and 'bonuses' depending on enthusiasm for the mod.
So here is the B5 conversion mod for X3 Terran Conflict (Please read before downloading, I'll try to be brief):
1. Download the mod
2. Make sure you have a clean install of X3TC v3.2 (THERE'S NO GOING BACK TO VANILLA AFTER THE CHANGES, WITHOUT ANOTHER CLEAN INSTALL)
Maybe install it in a different location if you want to keep an existing copy?
3. If you want the Cycrow cheats then install them next as my scripts WILL write over them (I recommend that you do, if you want to make vids or cheat in ships etc)
Cheat package (TC)
4. Now extract the mod into your X3TC directory
5. Rename the last two sets of CAT/DAT files so that they follow the number progression of the ones already there, probably 14 and 15
6. Go into the loadscreen folder, create another folder called hidden and shove the old X3 screens into it(unless you want to have them show in-game)
It's only been tested with win7/win10 and no other mods. (it works with a steam install)
It's way better than the demo, but still there are things missing or not changed...wrong videos or voices etc
Most B5 ships and other stuff is in, but the League are a bit thin and so they have temporary stations etc..
One notable ship missing is the Excalibur.
I/we hope to be able to patch a lot of the missing stuff in at some point. THIS WOULD LIKELY REQUIRE A RESTART, SO DON'T BUILD AN EMPIRE
YOU'D HATE TO LOSE PLEASE.
It has lots of content and therefore potential for story/missions(see X3 MD(mission director), but there are very few in there at the moment.
Hence the SANDBOX title. It's not been tested anywhere near as much as I'd like. I/we really hope you get something out of it after such a long wait
English only version currently...sorry :/
Once in-game set the Gamma to about 112.
There's more but it would make this post very long winded.
See other documentation in the download for further info.

What can I say? One of my favorite sci-fi universes open for exploration, trade and combat and pretty much everything you want to do. The whole concept of X3 fits the babylon 5 universe perfectly and this mod does a great job at merging them together! The atmosphere, the overall look, sounds and describtions are outstanding and leave you with the imperssion of a fully polished, complete game experience. There are still some rough edges here and there, but as mention in the first releases describtion…
