  1. Wiki Work...

    Been putting a lot of effort into allowing quicker article entry within the wiki.

    There's been so much work going into it, and with the complexity of some of the templates and articles, the editors have had a hard job entering data, particularly for the bigger ships with more turrets, etc.

    To solve this we've been working on creating an Excel spreadsheet that will manipulate the data into the correct final format. So far entries such as Minotaur and Skirnir have been

  2. Dedicated Writers for Fan Fiction

    I thought this post would be good to highlight, just to see if we can inspire some writing again at TXU. There's been such a high caliber of writing in times past, it'd be nice to see if there's some new talent able to write as well, or if we can persuade the oldies to get writing again...

  3. Memoirs of TXU - Part 4

    In any development, especially on software created by someone else, there is a large learning curve, where you try things, they work for a bit, and then you realise you should have done something different at the start.

    X was exactly like that.

    When we started changing some of the files, we got some nice new features. Later we decided to add to these files, and we hit a brick wall. Most of the files needed editing in such a way that we couldn't keep compatibility

  4. Memoirs of TXU - Part 3

    It's interesting perusing through some of the statistics of the site, it helps create a feel for the progression of the site. 2Blackhawk has been useful for this, as he's kept a constant track of stats (hidden from most in the Moderators Areas) which help show the progression.

  5. Memoirs of TXU - Part 2

    It was while scouting around for someone to help I came across Moxy's M7 Mod (known as MMM for short). This discovery was to change TXU forever.

    I'd always been a big fan of the X series. I liked the ideology of the games, and wished there was more to the games, extended plots, etc. MMM was what I needed. It expanded on the concepts that made X so good, it filled the gaps X had.
