Looks good, but I get a 404 for "Boronshark's X3 Ship Stats ".

The link is slightly incorrect. The "S" in X3Ships.xls needs to be a capital.

Hope that helps :)

FYI, the database has been updated with a couple of corrections, mainly relating to the Xenon fighters and I'm in the process of addiing hull strengths. When finished I'll upload the new version (currently v2)

This is the correct link :)

Commanders space station is in the X2 part, and especially now when i have split it up in the X2 and X3 section, the X3 section does not contain anything outdated(last time I checked).
