    X-Tended - Terran Conflict Patch & Manual 2.1

    Where to start? After our Release for 2.0 only 3 active people remained. We went on to start and collect fixes for a patch. We didn't quite know how to continue, so we kind of ended up in a frozen state where little was done for quite some time. But since we didn't want to leave this whole thing that cost us so many work hours already in such a 'poor' ( playable but with numerous annoying bugs ) state, we fired up the machinery and deliver you the probably final version of XTC, as well as the updated Manual. It may have taken longer then expected, but i think it was worth the wait.

    Since our team is too small with only 2 left(Dillpickle as Mission Guru, Me as everything-else guy) and our interest for the game has kinda dimished, we won't develop any further new content.

    However, if there are outstanding bugs we will likely release a hotfix for it. As last departing "gift" i'd like to announce an experimental version of XTC for X3:AP. This version will make use of some new features of AP (like better OOS combat and bigger menu systems), but has barely been playtested, hence the name "experimental". It should be available in a couple of weeks.

    We'd like to thank all of you who gave us feedback and helped us to find bugs.
    Special Thanks to Loriel for his support, proofreading and the work on the Player-FAQ ,
    Special Thanks to Sam Redstone as well, for his unbreakable dedication as Tester during the whole development of XTC. (comes a little bit late, but hey) - We therefore confer him the title "Eminent XTC tester - With Honors "

    Installation
    Short Version: Extract the patch zip file into the folder of your X3:Terran Conflict installation that has XTC 2.0 installed (the folder where your x3tc.exe is located)

    Long Version:
    To get the most smooth transition we recommend you to fly into an empty/unknown sector prior installation, and save your game there. Backup your savegames, just in case. Then install the patch.
    Extract the patch zip file into the folder of your X3:Terran Conflict installation that has XTC 2.0 installed (the folder where your x3tc.exe is located)
    Overwrite everything if asked. By default XTC 2.0 occupies cat 14 & 15, the patch cat 16. If you use different numbers (because of other installed mods), you have to adjust the patch number accordingly. Beware that other mods can break xtc or the patch can break the mods.

    Q: Is this patch save-game compatible?
    A: Yes and no. You can install the patch and continue with your savegames. Some changes however will only occur after a very long time, or may not take effect at all. (For example - the new split ship will not be available in SY's without a new gamestart). What you definitely can't do is install the patch, play your savegame and then revert back to 2.0. Once saved with 2.1 you can't go back.


    Q: I really don't want to restart, how do i get the most out of the patch?
    A: Check out this thread. Feel free to ask there if you have any questions about the procedure
