Extract and copy the Jobs.txt and JobWings.txt files, then rename them Jobs.<galaxy>.txt and JobWings.<galaxy>.txt - replace <galaxy> with your actual galaxy name (case sensitive), and you're set.

Here's one for you... last night I "accidentally" got myself to a screen that allowed me to edit the background and update the Tbackgrounds file (from the in-game editor). Now, I can't for the life of me find that screen again, any ideas?

From the Numpad-Enter menu, go to the far right menu, and towards the bottom is an option for turning on advanced details or somesuch like that. That's what you want to use. And it doesnt actually edit TBackgrounds, it just modifies the background you've chosen just for that specific sector.

Hey, I was wondering if there is an actual guide for this tool yet. Also, I'd like to know how I could add all normal X3 sectors in to my map exactly how they are when you start a new game, as in, populated with stations ships etc. or is this not possible?

I've never read it or used it, but Northstar supposedly has one. However, I'm in the process of writing one for my Akeela's Beacon website in the near future.

I'll look forward to reading it.

Would anyone be able to answer my other question?

I know how to add the sectors from original X3, but it's just the sector. No stations, ships, anything.

In the Debug menu for the galaxy editor (where you craete ships/stations/etc), you can choose to 'import sector' and choose the sector and the map name (x3_universe being the default X3 map). However, if you want the whole X3 universe to build from, you should just grab the x3_universe 1.3 map file from my repository, name it what you want, and start from there. That will give you a base of the stations, asteroids, sectors, gates, etc. To get ships, follow the info about Jobs and JobWings at the top of this page for info on that part.

Cheers

Thanks...

Sorry to seem bothersome and noobish, but I'm having some problems.

I have no 05.dat file in my X3 directory. What I do have are Security Catalog files numbered 1-8 and files that, for some reason, my computer recognized as video files also numbered 1-8.

Also, how would I go about extracting the files I need from the 05.dat file?

Hey nuclear, you should collect all those words of wisdom you've written in this thread and make them as a tutorial!

Those videos are in reality dat files (I suggest you turn on "Show file extensions" in your Explorer settings). To extract files from dat files you need doubleshadow's tools, you can find a link to his homepage in the stickies.

Alright, I have the tools but I try to add the 05.dat file it says it doesn't exist. So, I figure it says that because my computer still recognizes them as video files.

I've looked around, but I can't find how to change my explorer settings. Could you tell me where to look?

Ok, it still doesn't work even though I found the option. I can't drag and drop it either.

So... how am I supposed to extract the files with this? :?
