Firstly - make BACKUP FOLDERS of your favorite working game in-progress, plus the save game files.

Launch Plugin Manager and make sure the pathnames are correct under Settings.

Install the ship - it should be "Enabled" in the list of installed ships.

Use Mod Manager to inspect the contents of Plugin Manager.cat, which should be in the \mod folder of your working game folder.

It won't contain much, but make note of it.

Then, go into the main game folder, and inspect the contents of the highest numbered CAT file. It should contain all the "parts" and scene files of the ships you have installed.

If it does, those ships should be listed when you use LV Cheat "Create Ship".

If not, there is something "bad" with the pathnames in Setting or the TShips file. I would suggest making a brand new plain Vanilla install, patching it up to 2.5, and making a clean backup of that, and trying again.

IT SHOULD WORK! And in Vanilla, they should even show up in the appropriate shipyards available for sale in-game.

I have over 30 custom ships installed with XTM and no conflicts. Later, I want to add a couple of them to the Jobs file, so the AI will use them too. heh.

I guess I can always try installing the game and not using XTM and see if I can get the ships to work that way.
Just thought i would post an update encase anyone else was having a similar issue. Turns out there is something weird going on with X3: Reunion and the new Plugin Manager Lite 1.10. I went back to the old 2.x version and now everything works as it should.

Yeah I tried using Lite but I could not get the desired results, so I went back to version 2.12.

Again, this is probably a pathnames related issue. In 2.12, you have more control under Settings and Profiles. Never had any problems with it - its a solid tool that unlocks TONS of fun for your dozens of X3 game customizations and experiments.

Only when we have our own ideals, can {erased} we find the origin of energy and enthusiasm in life, and become active and perseverant. Whatever {erased} your ideal is, careful plan and preparation is vital to its realization. Of course, the path from {erased} where you are to where you want to get is not always smooth and straight. Therefore, an optimistic, positive {erased} mind is indispensable in the process of your persevering your ideal.

Zonealarm and some other security software have www.box.net registered as a known source for spyware distribution. I realize this is a tall request, but is there any chance you can upload your fantastic mods to a different (safer) download site?

So when you install the starbase into X3TC it changes many of the Terran stations to Argon trading stations and some stations just plain disappear. Like the Saturn Research Station. Is there a solution to this? Because i would love to have this amazing player HQ in Terran Conflict

MM are you still around? I would greatly appreciate if you could walk me through getting the space dock to work in Terran Conflict. I think the issue is with the tdock or the other files in the .cat from X3R. Ive tried adding the TC versions to the .cat without success. When i added the Space dock entry to the TC tdock and place the tdock in the .cat and installed. I actually got the right stations to appear. But i couldnt dock at them, Before hand stations like the Saturn Research station and the new Terran stations would just show up as Free Argon Trading stations. Once i added the TC Tdock in with the Spacedock entry, the stations actually showed up. But i couldnt dock. I started a new game and went to sell my m4 at the shipyard in saturn. It wouldnt dock. My m7 Intrepid would. But not the small ships. Any solutions?

Docking Issue.

Post by Sairaf » Sun, 12. Feb 12, 05:22

Ok, huh, sorry to bump this, but I just downloaded the following ships:


And for some reason, I can't dock anything on them. I have XRM installed, is that the issue? I can post my list of scripts and mods here.

EDIT: XRM was the issue. Removed it and everything's ok.

Is this still a valid thread? I wanted to put new ships into my X3 Reunion so I got Cycrow's software to do this. It unpacks .XSP files and installs them as .CAT files supposedly except that when you close the program it tells you to wait while converting them to MODS and then dies with a Windows "(not responding)."

It's 2012 and I think things have moved on. Any ideas?
