    The X-Tended Mod 0.7.5 is a modification for the game X3: Reunion by Egosoft.

    XTM has a unique approach to modding X3:Reunion, we always try to extend the X3 universe and game style while trying not to upset the careful balance that Egosoft created in the original game. As such, a general rule we try to follow is not to change any of the ES stock game assets, but try to add to them, expanding the game into a fuller experience for the player.

    In the X3 Universe, the 5 main races are at war with an alien race called the Kha'ak, they are also fighting an ongoing battle with a race of AI controlled machines called the Xenon. On top of this there are all the petty little skirmishes between the races themselves, and space pirates also have to be dealt with (unless you want to be a pirate of course, then it's the main races that have to be dealt with).

    Each race in the X-Universe is constantly at war with someone, and in XTM we try to reflect this by making the X-Universe a more dangerous place to live, but we offset this by allowing the player to own more powerful ships (Although they are all carefully balanced not to be super-ships), and ships that have specialised functions.

    Currently a few of the ships we have added are:

    A full M7 class. These ships are the equivalent of a frigate class, bigger and heavier that Corvettes but smaller and not as well armed as a full Destroyer or Carrier class ship. They fill the huge power gap between the M6's and the M1/M2's currently in X3:Reunion.

    M8 ship class. These ships are built to roughly the same scale as the M7's but with specialised functions and are only lightly armed and shielded in comparison, but in here we have mine-layer ships, shield frigates, front line support ships that can construct M5-M3's internally so you have a constant supply of fighters to help defend frontier sectors (as long as you have the credits that is), and many others that have a niche but important function.

    M0 Class ships. These are the largest ships in the universe and are classed as Mother-ships. They are experimental, and rare.

    There are also new stronger military variations of some ship classes. For example the M6 class has military variations (MM6) for all races to help defend their sectors against the Kha'ak.

    We also felt that the X-Universe itself was a little too small, and that you kept bumping your elbows against the edges. So we decided to expand it for the player. The XTM universe is almost double the size of the original, and is currently (as far as we know) the largest universe created for X3:Reunion.

    XTM also contains new GFX, SFX, and music all created specifically for this mod.

    We hope that our fans enjoy playing XTM as much as we enjoyed creating it.

    X-Tended - Terran Conflict is a new modification for the game X3: Terran Conflict by Egosoft. (X-Tended - Terran Conflict is still under construction.)

    X-Tended - Terran Conflict (XTC) goes beyond what the original X-Tended Mod (XTM) did for X3: Reunion. The X-Tended team decided to make this mod bigger, and take it further and deeper than ever before. Our initial release will be on par with the original XTM, but we are classing this as a 'base' release which we can then build and extend upon.

    XTC has been built from the ground up with 'Large Mod' in mind, and thus will have many new systems built from scratch that are easy to extend upon in the future and also designed to integrate with each other as seamlessly as possible.

    Although this mod is not yet released we have made many far reaching changes to the original game. As an example the weapon, missile, and shield systems have been rebuilt from the ground up, we haven't just added new ones but totally reorganised them all as well to allow for many more additions to their respective sections, while still leaving room to add even more in the future should we decide to.

    We have re-built the entire universe map from the ground up to give players a new experience and to allow old X universe veterans a chance to have that great feeling of exploring the unknown again.

    We have also added an in-game difficulty system that allows players to change how hard their game is using presets, but we have also added a custom menu so players may set every aspect of their game up to suit their style of play if one of the presets does not suit them.

    These are just a few examples of some of the changes we are implementing. There are many more, and most of them are built in modules so if a player does not like a feature, they can just turn it off via a simple switch.

    Please read the news articles below for more details on the systems mentioned briefly here, plus many more we have added - not to mention some nice eye-candy. (If you wish to read them in order, please work from the bottom up.)

    Welcome to X-Tended.

    X-Tended is a set of modifications for the X-Universe games created by Egosoft.

    Currently there are two X-Tended mods. The first is called The X-Tended Mod, and is the mod that created X-Tended as a term in it's own right. The X-Tended Mod was, and still is, one of the largest and best loved modifications for X3: Reunion.

    The latest mod from the X-Tended team is for the newer game X3: Terran Conflict, and is still under development.
