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 :)

Try this link for Boronshark's nice ship list:

"I would like to say how amazed we all are here by the huge success of the game" - Bernd Lehahn
"Any fan of space simulations will find the UI in X Rebirth easy to use and much more intuitive, but the 'Trade, Fight, Build, Think' gameplay elements and interaction remain as deep as X game fans have come to expect" - Bernd Lehahn
"Sir, we are lacking 'success' for a while now and must take action !" - "Okay, let's pull off an XR then!".

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X2 part, and especially now when i have split it up in the X2 and X3 section, the X3 section does not contain anything outdated(last time I checked).
