X1: Past and Future Mod

Version Beta 3.0

I have recently came back to modding X3: Terran Conflict, it must be this time of year. I was doing three projects when I left, and I have finally came back to update this one. My goal this time was to make the more stable, add more ships, improve the graphics and generally improve things.

Normally when I release a new version I would write a news post before releasing it, however at the time of releasing Beta 3.0 I knew it was not finished in any way. So I have been releasing patches nearly every day since, it is currently up to beta 3.5. I think in its current state its worth advertising it.

When I initially released beta 3.0 (March 05 11) I basically just sorted it out and tried to remember how it worked. To start of with I began bringing over features from my other mod X-Universe Modular Mod, the x-universe mod was actually designed to be an experiment of new ideas so I could incorporate them later into the X1PF mod. So I did.
The mods I brought over included the shield effects mod, directional jet texture enhancement, x2 weapons, the new version of the planet plugin, and the transparent HUD plugin.
However that was not all..

  • Created a new load screen
  • Reworked the MD Scripts
  • Reworked text files
  • Moved over to the plugin manager installation
  • Reworked some more textures.

Later on in 3.1 (March 06 11) I worked on killing bugs, first of I took out the X2 Capital ships and my custom ships as they needed more work. Next I fixed the wrong space suit cockpit problem then was to fix the IRE performance issues.

Now onto 3.2 (March 07 11), this was another bug killing patch. The patch fixed the following problems:

  • Nova A's cockpit position to far back
  • Nova A's Rear turret position incorrect
  • Re-implemented the lensflares into the mod
  • More work on the jobs file for the XBTF style map.

Patch 3.3 (March 08 11) was basically coming up with new names for ships, reworking the text files and improving the shield effect.

Patch 3.4 (March 10 11) I actually developed the mod a bit, I did some more work on the shield mod and planet textures as well as adding the x2 boron fighter ships.

Today's patch (Patch 3.5 March 11 11) I didn't get on with at all. I implemented the x2 boron TS, this ship is very animated, and I don't know if it is the newer x3 game engine that does not allow it to animate the way it should or egosoft didn't do a good job. Can not remember how it looked in x2. I also had a go at re-editing the cloud textures, my first attempt made them look like a low resolution and second attempt made them too sharp. I'm probably going to revert back to the textures I had in Beta 2.0. Other than that I edited the Centaur Corvette's lenflares so that looks abit better.

Only 54 sectors? isnt that kind of little or is every sector really full of good stuff? (i mean a sector wouldn't be empty and boring)

You still can play the normal x3tc universe, but the xbtf map (54 sectors) just means it is a busier universe for a less impact on performance.

If you choose the normal gamestarts you play the normal universe, if you go to custom game > Xbtf Style you play with the xbtf map. Hope that helps

I haven't been working on it recently because I don't seem to have as much time as I used to. I've also lost interest in x3, so modding it seems hard.
