      Default X-Tended - Terran Conflict Patch & Manual 2.1



      X-Tended - Terran Conflict Patch & Manual 2.1

      You don't need to install this patch anymore, you only need patch 2.2

      The manual and statistics sheet are still valid however.

      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 "

      Download
      Download 2.1 Patch

      Download 2.1 Manual

      Download 2.1 Statistics Spreadsheet (combined version)

      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

      Many thanks not only to the remaining team members, but all who have gone before too.

      I have a place on my hard drive which has been prepared in anticipation of this.

      Very surprised to see the news on the experimental AP version, I thought this TC 2.1 would be very close to last if not the last version.

      Looks like I need to reserve a bit more HD space

      X3 = Ooooh shiny!
      Xtended = "Nooo! time for work already!"

      Thanks for the hard work guys. Shame that this project is now done, but I could see the writing on the wall, so to speak. What I mean, is that interest in the game as a whole has been pretty low, even I find myself hardly even thinking about playing it. It's sad really, but I do go through these types of spurts with games.

      I'm very happy with the work that has been done on this mod. It's the only TC mod I've ever played, and likely will continue to be just that, the only one I'll ever play. Thanks again for the hard work and many hours the current and former members of the team have put into this mod. Without the dedication you all have put in, we wouldn't have seen this mod get to the point is has come to. Thanks again, to all of the people involved in making this mod.

      To get the Acinonyx without starting a new game I have to use the script editor or will something crash if I'm adding the ship into the game?

      No it won't crash. It should also roam around in the universe (even without restart). If you want to buy it at a shipyard, you can also reset the waretemplate: download this, extract where you have extracted the patch as well. Then go ingame, and change playername to "reset".

      Default Thanx !

      Really appreciate that you completed the immense work you have done for 2.0. It's an amazing new X-experience (I have started with X2, went on with X3R, XTM, X3TC, XTC 1.2, and now for 22-IG-days XTC 2.0).

      The patch might be the kick to start a new game as the situation of my actual game is getting ... difficult: I have installed a Split SY and a big complex in XS 301. This did not remain unnoticed by the Xenon, their response is rather ferocious (to say the least )

      edit: On page 110 of the new 2.1-manual it is still written (my marks):
      X-Tended - Terran Conflict Manual, version 2.5a, for XTC v1.2a
      No pixels were harmed (permanently) in the making of this mod.

      I am now playing for about 2 weeks but still no sign of the plot. There are some "hints" in Galactic news system that war with XENON will begin soon but nothing specific yet. Could someone let me know what are the conditions for plot start, etc? Eventually where can I find all this details?

      And one more question. If I take a mission to kill someone. I fly there, kill him, but do not get a message "mission completed" and when I check the mission log, I can see following instruction Kill: invalid ........ . Looks like some error. Could someone advise how to fix this issue that i can get my reward for mission?

      Thanks a lot
