Note: This software is no longer actively developed. It was superseded by X3 Editor 2.


X3 Editor latest version 0.0.15 - released 9.3.2007

Download from www.doubleshadow.wz.cz.

Don't forget to download the DevIL plugin (available at X3E download page) so you will be able to see Missile and Laser icons.

There is X3 Editor page on X-Wiki which can point you to other useful info and tutorials.

If your antivirus gives you a warning about X3E or X3MM patch, read Virus issues with doubleshadow's tools on X-Wiki for possible reasons.

Changes:

* fixed bug in TLaser which forbid you from change the Projectile (bullet) type

Description
X3E is successor to X2E Smile It can edit T files, galaxy map files and xml text resource files. It can can open and save from/to catalog files so you don't need to unpack game data.

You can:
Edit and add new records into most T files.
Edit TShips files (adding turrets, lasers, ...)

Galaxy Editor and Text Resource Editor:
Both editors are fully functional as viewers but their ability to save files may be limited as they were designed for X2.

If you are new to X3 modding, you should also read how to make a mod using X3 ModManager.

Hi to all the old friends from X2 Modding and to all new people as well.

This is first release of X3 Editor (X3E). Although I know that there are threads with explanations of values in T files, I used my old X2 Editor as reference. There is lot of unknown values in TShips and in other T files as well which need to be revealed.

Although I know that some of the values may be known now, I didn't have access to internet in the past 5 days when I was doing the X3 conversion, so I used what I had at the moment.

Feel free to PM/e-mail me so I can update X3E to be at least as good as its predecessor was Smile

One thing you may need to know: The game is running pretty slowly on my machine (and it crashed 5 mins after installation Laughing ) so I'm probably not going to play it. Of course with that, my ability to test things out is somewhat limited...

There are some areas where I need your help:

Every object in T file has "footer" consisting of 9 values (the last 9 values). Although Burianek post some explanation, it were just some unmeaning names - I need simple descriptive names please...

In TShips there are 5 unknown values - what are they?

All T files - check that the variables are really named correctly. The fact that Egosoft didn't changed the structure much doesn't mean that everything is as it was in X2.

In X3 Galaxy Maps there are new attributes in the XML. What are those attributes? AlaarDB do you hear me? I think you could melp me with that Smile
Also there are new race numbers (indexes) in some of the sectors. I don't know what race it is.

If you want to know whether I will upgrade my other programs to work with X3, the answer is yes - check the X Tools thread

Hm. Can I just ask somthing about galaxy editing. Are we totaly limited with what sectors we have. I noticed that X co-ordinates cant go higher than 20 and Y co-ordinates cant go higher than 14.

I dont suppose there is any way past this?

Howdy doubleshadow Mr. Green

I'll install and give it a whirl. Was hoping you would be working on this and I'm happy you have a functional version. Thumb up

Give me an example of what you're talking about. I'm not sure every types file has the same structure for the last 9 entries. Give me a line from one of the types files you want me to decypher, and I'll try to be as specific as possible in explaining the last 9 values.

Interesting stuff, shall I hand over the designing of an X3 Editor to your or keep working on mine? I think you are able to devote much more time to the program, and have modded the game much more seriously. So I believe I will stop programming my x3 editor.

Great work, Doubleshadow! Have unpacked Tships, it looks exactly like it was in X2.

My question is: Is there a value for the type of ship that can be docked in another? I want to make alterations to the Argon Mammoth, give it a load more docking slots, but I read elsewhere in X3 it can only carry ships up to M6 size, I want it to be able to carry TS`s, like it did in X2.

TIA, Lazza

Kryptyk - you're still alive Confused Smile - how's the corn? Laughing
Nice to see you again. I was thinking about writing you an e-mail but then I reconsider that - thought you are no longer interested in X2/3.

Look here at X2 and X3 examples:

X2 - SS_SH_A_TL - Argon Mammoth - last 5 values
Code:
1 - volume
700000 - price
25 - price modifier (1)
1 - price modifier (2)
0 - ware class


X3 - SS_SH_A_TL - Mammoth - last 9 values
Code:
1 - volume
351145 - price
25 - price modifier (1)
1 - price modifier (2)
0 - ware class
351145 - price again?
3333 - min. notoriety
0 - ?
0 - ?


X2 - SS_WARE_ENERGY - Energy Cells - last 5 values
Code:
1 - volume
4 - price
65 - price modifier (1)
10 - price modifier (2)
1 - ware class


X3 - SS_WARE_ENERGY - Energy Cells - last 9 values
Code:
1 - volume
4 - price
25 - price modifier (1)
10 - price modifier (2)
1 - ware class
4 - price again?
-100 - min notoriety
1016 - ?
0 - ?

You probably don't have the C runtime and zlib1 library installation files - get it here. After you run it, choose "other directory" and select the directory where is your X3E installed. That should help. If not, e-mail/PM me.

That's specified in the .obj files as it was in X2. You will need the objhack from CheckerTwo to modify it. I don't know if X3 obj files are the same as they were in X2. It's up to you to try it.
