Welcome to X-Wing Alliance Upgrade, a mod all about upgrading the glory that is X-Wing Alliance. The mod replaces all models with High poly models with HD textures. The newly released steam version is NOT supported, and won't be in the future. People still sell the original 2-disc version online, so it shouldn't be much of an issue. Enjoy your stay!

Here we see the origional model made by "Totally Games" for comparison purposes.

The planetary Fighter gets it's namesake from it's design ethos; although it performs decently in space, the planetary fighter was designed and tested for atmospheric fighting.

With three atmospheric turbine engines, and four sublight engines, the planetary fighter is a formidable opponent in groups, but like the Z-95's, they are easily outclassed by an X-Wing.

The standard weaponry consists of dual laser cannons, and two forward-firing proton torpedo launchers.

The planetary fighter only required a single pilot, however, a second pilot and an astromech droid had the ability to perform light repairs and re-route power between primary systems while engaging in battle, giving the craft a much-needed advantage.

The planetary fighter saw very little actual space deployment. They were used mostly by planetary police organizations, as well as corporate security for customs' stations.

The second pilot seat could be removed and used for a decent amount of storage space, making the craft favorable for smugglers and privateers.

Although the craft had decent hull plating, it was lightly shielded, making it the perfect cost-effective security vehicle.

Get this craft, and every craft the X-Wing Alliance Upgrade team has done so far, in The X-Wing Alliance Upgrade Craft pack, available on the download page on our main site:

I appreciate the effort put into Darksabre's XWA mod, but I am having trouble with thegraphics. I looks like a shattered mirror, and I was wondering if you had any advice.

I am running XP Pro SP3 with a GeForce 8800 GT card

Thank you! this worked well. Now I play X-Alliance on Win8 64bit Pro :)

In the instructions I found that Daemon tools did it directly from disk and the previous step of copying the disk to hard-drive, unnecessary. I was stumped for a bit.

We need an X-Wing Alliance 2, with everything from the original, big space skirmish battles, able to pick the spaceships in said skirmishes, and with better graphics, more spaceships, bigger spaceship limit, and 3d planets.

You said it :D I honestly don't know why the series ended at Alliance, imagine how cool a current-gen or next-gen x-wing versus tie fighter would be. :D

The series ended when the Death Star II was destroyed. It would be nice if, just as EAW, there was a next-gen game featuring a pirate side.
