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.
As promised here is the Alpha Demo for your viewing... please, please read the readme associated with it for installing instructions.
Babylon 5 X3 Terran Conflict Total Conversion v 1.0alpha
This alpha demo is provided as is and whilst every effort is made to not cause problems with your current X3TC installation, we cannot guarantee that it will work flawlessly on every PC.
The game is a total conversion for X3 Terran Conflict by Egosoft based up on the sci-fi series Babylon 5. The alpha demo is designed to give players a brief tour around a small area the X3TC Babylon 5 game map; focusing currently on Earth Alliance space and a few systems around the EA territories. It is my no means a full and complete game; only the EA race ships are anywhere near complete and even here there are minor omissions - this is an alpha demo. The idea of this package is for feedback and any positive critism. All of which can be posted our website at the bottom of this document.
.exe version instructions:- The mod installs into your current X3TC directory; although you may have direct the installer to the right location on your computer. It installs on the basis that you have a fresh install of X3TC and patched up to 2.7.1; and will over-write anything else in it's way. We understand you may wish to cheat at some point, whilst we obviously think you are disgraceful cheaters, should you do this via Cycrows cheats the game may no longer function correctly as it will over-write some of our scripts in the install as this will take dominance over ours.
NOTE: There will be a CAT file installed, it is named RENUMBERME.cat, this should be named after your highest .cat number. So if your highest cat number is 14.cat and 14.dat then name your file 15.cat and 15.dat. This is simply a temporary measure until we work out the installer software.
DIY version instructions:- see website for details of how to extract and install the demo/alpha in this type of pack
We'd also appreciate people not ripping our models out to use elsewhere. Whilst our modification is obviously done for non-profit, we put blood, sweat and tears as well as our marriages on the line for it and so would appreciate our modification to be kept as we intended.
