X-Tended - Terran Conflict 2.0 Released

X-Tended - Terran Conflict, which is a complete overhaul of Egosoft's game, X³: Terran Conflict has just been released at version 2.0. This looks like a really awesome looking Space Strategy Simulator Trading Mod and I personally can't wait to try it out.

X-Tended - Terran Conflict is a complete overhaul of Egosoft's game, X³: Terran Conflict. Featuring a completely new ship & weapon balance, numerous gameplay enhancements, streamlined ways to manage your assets, dozens of new weapons, wares, missiles, ships, new missions, a completely new map and a setting that is faithful to the official lore laid out by the books and games.

What's more, this modification/overhaul has been in development for nearly 4years and has seen many different team members working to the bone to get this ready and now it's here.

Installation Instructions

1. Download the Mod. (Duh!)

2. Make sure you have a new, clean installation of Terran Conflict patched to version 3.2 or later. (A clean installation means there are no other scripts and mods installed – Not even the official bonus pack.)

2. Start the mod's installer.

3. If the installation path in the installer is not correct for your installation of Terran Conflict, use the browse button to set the correct location. (It should be pointing towards the same folder that has x3tc.exe in it.)

4. Wait for the mod to install.

5. Start a new game and enjoy.

Warning! X-Tended – Terran Conflict 2.0 does not support game saves from either vanilla Terran Conflict or from any previous version of X-Tended – Terran Conflict. You must start a new game. X-Tended – Terran Conflict 2.0 is only compatible with Terran Conflict, it will not work with Albion Prelude.

Four quick ways to check that XTC 2.0 has installed to the correct location:
a) Terran Conflict's launcher will have additional info for XTC and will say 'Start XTC' on the launch button.
b) The loading screens when the game launches are for XTC.
c) The main menu has XTC next the 'New Game' option.
d) The scene playing behind the main menu is different.
