As per the title, is it possible to export specific new ships from Xtended 1.2a into a regular X3TC 3.1 game? Or has so much been done to the ships/models/textures etc that it it would be far too time consuming to deconstruct?

Oh, it's definitely possible, as the filetypes used are standard-compatible. The thing is, there is no automated extraction tool, so you will have to manually take all the textures, model files, scene files, put them in a vanilla install at appropriate folder paths, edit the vanilla tShips to have the new shipmodel showing up, test in-game, set up scripts or job files so that the NPCs use the new ship (if it isn't a replacement of an existing ship, ofc).

Oh, and if you do that, we would appreciate if you would keep the resulting shipmod to yourself - we don't encourage redistribution of XTC shipmodels outside of XTC. Note, you can get a lot of out shipmodels from Albion Prelude files though - Egosoft took a bunch of them, you can find them pretty easily - model filenames having XTC in their name and all ;). But afaik Egosoft also doesn't want/permit modders to distribute content taken directly from one game into another.

Hi there,
i need some help, too. I dont want to change game mechanics, jobs, name of ships, weapons or something but i see there are a lot of changes from v1.2 to 2.0 for the eyes :grin:... So i wanna have "exchange" some shipmodels for the eyes, too.
I want to change the used ships in v.20 with following ships:

http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f75/chobit-389/Cadius%20Ships/Cad26.jpg instead of the OTAS Freighter Model

for examble. The models are from the well known mod http://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=308762

Is there someone who can help me doing this? I have read a lot in dif. Forum but i dont have the nerves to do so :cry: ?
Yours
Snuggy
