Mayhem base archive. PLEASE READ THE FULL INSTRUCTIONS ->
The universe of Mayhem is chaotic by nature. All factions can invade any sector, and you are just a tiny empire compared to others. Sometimes truce can be signed between two factions, but most of the time, their shipyards will frequently launch new invasion waves on a regular basis.
Stations, asteroids, sector statistics, strategic interests: many things are random in Mayhem, making each game feels different.
The economy in Mayhem is unstable and unpredictable. This is mainly because the war can go to any sector at anytime, and a sector that was a good base for trading can quickly become a nightmare for your traders and others. But there's good news: you can be self sufficient quite easily if you spend your resources wisely.
The OCV is a very aggressive faction that will attack your stations directly in your sectors. Such attacks occur every day, until you find a way to stop them once and for all. Until then, their strength will keep increasing based on your Threat level.
But the OCV is not your only concern. You will have the opportunity to save your people throughout the main plot, to help the Goners and to trigger the wrath of the Kha'aks. And if that's not enough, you can try to fulfill one of the long term victory conditions.
In Mayhem, resources such as Energy Cells, Ore or Computer Components, are more important than ever. They are used to craft ships, missiles, lasers, shields, and even your stations. Credits is just another resource, still an important one though, as it is used to maintain your fleet and trade the wares you do not produce yourself.
All sectors have different statistics (max. people, research rate...), so you better plan your expansion before attacking another faction. But rest assured, you have plenty of time to do that. You will need that time to scan ship data needed to acquire blueprints, but you'll also have to grow your population, improve your Sanctuaries, carefully select the Perks you need, increase your reputation with factions and companies, etc.
Sometimes war is not the only solution. If you have a special interest in some factions, you can ask them to sign a truce with another race, break this truce or invade a specific sector. You can even conquer a sector for them, invest money into their shipyards or subjugate them!
Having the proper agents to manage your assets is crucial. Plan your logistics in advance, specialize your sectors in manufacturing specific wares, defend your sectors with Orbital Weapons Platforms and use the new Dock Agents and jobs system. Building a well-oiled logistics machine will be hard, but very rewarding.
Mayhem revamps the boarding system and adds a new Expedition features. This meta-game will keep you busy and can have a big influence on your empire. Design special equipment, level up your marines the way you want and make them loot precious resources for you. If you didn't like boarding in X3, you'll see that the whole system is now finally attractive!
Mayhem has a lot of smaller features and changes. Here is a non-exhaustive list: company missions, ascension levels, distress signals, local merchants, maintenance and ship robustness, reworked agents, marines repair, backlog (build a template in one click!), loot, in-game help, combat revamp, better sector backgrounds, etc.

This is THE mod that you need to fill that gaping void in your heart. It is a comprehensive total conversion mod that takes the vanilla X3 experience, and turns it into something refreshing and fun. In this mod, you play as a survivor of the Sohen race. You start with a Sanctuary in a remote sector, and are tasked with saving your people, and rebuilding the Sohen presence in the universe. The gameplay balances around this special Sanctuary station. It is the primary means for which you can (EASILY…
