Right :roll:
I prefer X2 way more than X3 :) first X2 is very nice to computers and the graphics are quite good too!
the only annoying thing is the limmits in modding :cry:

The Pandora team (those who got the same Signature© as me) hope you'll stay loyal to X2 until we release our mod :D
(no release date jet, but you can visit our board and feel free to post ideas, wishes etc.!)

And there probably will be a Player HQ in Pandora, but whether or not it'll be a ship or a station, we don't know yet.

So, just keep updating on Top Gun, Harlock hasn't posted for a while, but he said he was real busy with RL stuff and modding, so he'll probably give us a big update soon.

But yes, there will be Player HQs in both of the most popular X2 mods!
Actually X2 has the PHQ: the Player's Equipment Dock.

Many mods download links are dead, but almost all mods can found in Baubsmyth's Archive.

Maybe you're interested in mods that are build atm.
First there is Firelance which is getting new ships now (update). Might be a nice mod. It changes many aspects in the game.
Further there is P.X.D which adds lot of new ships and stations too. The Final version is still under construction however.
The (in my oppinion) best mod in future will be Pandora. We add ships, story, gameplay improvement,... a whole bunch of interesting stuff. This takes a LOT of time though so we couldn't even release a testversion jet cause all is still in construction :( however the done parts are fantastic already ;)

Mods i'm trying atm

Firelance
Starwars mod
TopGun
Bounty hunter
and the Graphic mod

installed the x2_bonus_package_1.04.01

Just downloaded Massive War Mod 1.7.2 (without plot) found in Baubsmyth's Archive. Thanks Zeron-mk7

I'm still deciding what mod to stick with lol. Have been playing the game in the custom galaxy map option <- this disables the plot and just lets the user do whatever he wants in the game as in free-form game play, is that right? I don't really care much about the plot just yet.

So in the custom galaxy universe i can just play and do anything for ever kind of thing?

@Shadow dream, be looking forward to the Pandora mod. Sounds great!

X2 is the one game i have played now for nearly eight years :D
I have been with the X games since i got X-Gold moons ago and the main thing i have noticed is the immersion has been cut down in X3. By that i mean, no station interiors, no cockpits, no player logo etc. X2 is the better version of X-Tension, Great GFX and doesnt need a uber PC to run. I use X3 to benchmark new PC's that i put together, thats the best use. Having said this i do like the AI in X3, Pirates are actually dangerous :o and the boron have grown a pair :D

I have just reinstalled it on my old laptop again and have no intention of leaving it for sometime. I was never that keen on x3 to be honest and truth - apart from the graphics - still consider x1 the best of the lot. Now, if only someone would produce a new texture pack for x1...

I see it's been a few months since anyone posted on this thread, so I thought I'd throw-in a couple of comments of my own. X² - The Threat is one of those games you just keep going back to, so its longevity is pretty-much assured. For that reason, I'm really glad that Zeron-mk7 and his friends are plugging on with the P.X.D. mod. I d/l the 0.8a version a couple of days back and have got to say that it's pretty impressive! The ship designs, especially, are superb though I'm puzzled as to why some of the larger ships have multiple small shields instead of a few heavy ones. 19 x 5mW? I'm sure there must be a reason for that - what would I know about modding? lol

Going back to X² itself though. Anytime things get a little "samey" I just install a different mod and away we go again - a whole new experience (almost). Genesis, Deadly's Ship & Stn., P.X.D., Top Gun and Firelance are the ones I use, I'd like to try Terradine but it refuses to start for me and hangs my machine.

Anyway, keep up the good work all you modders, I take off my hat to you! :D

I just bought X2 and am playing it for the first time. I didn't even know it existed until a couple weeks ago. I used to play Merchant Empires, a browser game years ago, and I wondered if there were any console games like it (never been a big PC gamer), and stumbled onto X3. Looked awesome, but my PC is too crappy to run X3. Luckily I found threads on this forum where people said X2 was better, so I bought it and really like it so far.

However, broken freighters SUCK, so slooooow :evil:
