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):

Babylon 5 Total Conversion


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)
Plug-in manager
Forum.egosoft.com
Cheat package (TC)
Forum.egosoft.com
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.
Please comment to our FB group or website for queries.

Regards
B5X3TC Team

Is there a forum or someplace I could post a question about troubleshooting to? The mod seems to work fine however I either have a full Gray or Black background so I cant see anything. I'll see if I can take some screenshots if you need em

I cannot play the game with this mod. unfortunately, every time I load the game, the main menu works fine, but the second I load a new game, I get to control the ship for maybe 3 seconds and then the whole thing freezes up, sound looping every 5 seconds.

The same thing I experience (with full version from 26 June 16).

After starting the new game X3TC applcation just freezes up with looping sound. Sometimes it allows me to control my ship for the whole couple of seconds. Once it even managed to start the introductory screen ( for Human start ) but in every case it just freezes.

EDIT: Finally managed to launch this mod.I dont know what special I did - after the game start I just started moving mouse cursor to determine whether the game freezes or not, the game got into looping-sound state for approx a minute, and after that it succesfully showed the human pilot introductory screen and allows me to play. Really strange. X3TC 3.2c.

Good job, guys. I really hope you will fix this embarassing issues.

I have a question about creating ships; I'm trying to create battles with the B5 mod but Whenever I spawn a ship with cycrows cheat package they don't seem to have any AI. Whether I set them to ally or enemy they just sit there and do nothing even if I fire at them. Is this normal? I gave them their default equipment and I'm able to move and fire with them If I make them player controlled but if I set them to faction controlled they do nothing and react to nothing. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance!

THey should have their own AI straight away.
For example, when I create a Shadow Battlecrab and a Vorlon ship; they will attack each other straight away.
So I don't know what the issue is there.
There will be an update in the coming weeks however, so hopefully that may resolve any issues.

Hmm that's frustrating. It's interesting that your spawned ships attack each other though. I asked cycrow today and he said that the ships are not supposed to spawn with pre-programmed AI and they have to be scripted manually with the script editor if I want them to move around and actually fire :S The whole scripting thing looks rather complicated for me and it seems like a lot of time and hassle to create a quick ship battle haha. Wish there was an easier way :( Also, I love your mod. the models and weapons effects are awesome. I only wish I could have some fun with it now lol.

Not sure if it helps but i use the ship spawn function at the bottom of the ship creation menu. I then spawn some ships for a specific race (eg: Narn) and then do it again but spawn the next group of ships as enemy or foe (i can't remember which it is). Provided they are close enough they should engage each other. hope this helped.

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…
