The XTended mod features all new, original content created in the original spirit of X3: Reunion. Adding ships, weapons, sectors, missions, effects, and everything in between, we aim to be an unofficial expansion to the game, bringing old fans back in for another tour of duty while drawing new fans in. Adding multiple new ship classes to fill in tactical gaps in the already established order of battle, be ready for fleet battles to reach a whole new level with ships like Drone Frigates, Mine Layers, Mobile Shipyards, and the massive M0 super Battleships. Its not all combat though, we've added tons of new content and sectors for the explorer to discover, and new stations and freighter class ships should keep the peaceful merchant happy as well.

Here's a rough feature list for our upcoming 0.7 release:

90 new sectors including:
- The Solar System
- New Xenon, Kha'ak, Pirate, and Yaki Sectors

Many other new features including:
- New wares and features to find and use

The development stage may say public beta, but that's just because we're not done adding content, and we're not planning on "finishing" anytime soon, so just when you think you've seen it all we'll come out with even more new content.

Mox`s mod is more better than for X3TC.
For X3R good mod, for X3TC is bad.

I'm downloading it now. Looks nice. Though, I've got to ask, when buying the different craft, did you add in images when buying at the shipyards?

Yea, ya know what? I stand corrected on my first statement; This mod ain't even worth the ******** of installing. There's NO installation instructions for first-time X3 modders, it's not packed into a single file, AND it's NOT compatible with the X3 Plugin Manager! No offence to the author of this mod, but who ever packed this mod was a ******* idiot! I SERIOUSLY think the developer of this mod should go back and re-release this mod with a PROPER READ ME file WITH installation instructions! I can't even make heads or tails of how to install this stupid thing!!!

Ok. I guess I own an apology. I think I found out what the problem was. I think I needed to upgrade to 2.5 before I tried running the mod. I just wish that little detail was mentioned in the mod's details. Sorry guys.

After a little digging I found a link that was not dead. Just a heads up, they're already beginning work on the X-Tended mod for X3:TC.

Thanks alot VEpP i looked everywhere i could find and couldnt find one, really apreciate it. I have had X3 for a long time but never got into it cause i found its controls and overall gameplay a bit too hard, i picked it up out of my pile of old stuff and decided to give it a try a few days ago. Now i have a good joystick i find it much easier with the combat, though i still get raped alot, but at least this time im actually getting into it.

I hear that TC improves the control interface so i might grab a copy if i see it for a good price next week.

Anyways thanks for the link, downloading now.

If you're getting raped in combat - STRAFE, STRAFE, STRAFE. It is going to be your number-one tool for survival. Circle-strafing and spiral-strafing are the two easiest ways to avoid fire.
