Content:


  • A reworked GalaxyMap with cleared cosmetic errors and a couple of remedy bugs at the original map.
  • Furthermore an optical revalue escpecially of the new sectors by adding and/or replacing planets and asteroids.
  • Ther are also a couple of new suns in this map (or old ones, depends on how you see it Wink)
  • Every sector now has a unique Sectorsoundtrack-ID. So you are able to allocate a unique music track to every sector and there will not be the same track somewhere in your universe, where it might not fit, again.
    This new IDs start up from 09000





Requirements:


  • As of known reasons a restart of the game is not avoidable.
  • Furthermore, at least additional 1 Gb of free disk space is necessary. Because you will need at least 180 music tracks more, the soundtrack folder will increase its space significantly.



(A small goody for all who where able to read the book »Farnhams Legend«)








And now the

Downloadlinks:


- DLLink - incl new Suns and new Sectorsoundtrack-IDs

- DLLink - incl new suns, but without new Sectorsoundtrack-IDs

Sectorsoundtrack-ID List

This list contains every used soundtrack ID. Useful if you want use a specific music file for a specific sector.

Advice for Version 2.0+:

Additional Music-ID's:

00032 | 00033 | 00025 | 00040

This 4 ID's need to be in your soundtracks-folder, because with the latest patch 2.0 you get a couple of new sectors and therefore new new music. Which mp3-file you use does not matter, as long as there is a file with this ID. I noted this four ID's separately in the SID-List.

Instruction_How_to_change_soundtracks.7z

Due to some issues I've removed the soundtrack folder. Instead of it I have added a short instruction how to modify your soundtrack files that they are still useable with this map.



Both downloads below are offering the same content as the downloads from above but without new suns and are only listed for the sake of completeness. Improvements, regarding the GalaxyMap within the realms of possibility, are going to be offered also with this maps.

Saving save games and taking a copie of all altered folders, especially the soundtrack folder, and files is recommended, as usual – But it is not a must have, if you have the time to restore your installation to the raw condition.

You may want to check into the soundtracks, particularly, if you can distribute the actual tracks.


Beyond that, I like the idea.

It'd make it a lot easier for someone to add their own (follwing the number scheme) than having to edit the galaxy map.


I'll grab it, I'll be restarting soon anyway (well, as soon as Ashley makes her XXL mod available). Smile

I'm pretty sure Fair Use laws cover the music use, since he's not making money from the project.

Nice mod, I like when people make mods that adjust game atmosphere.

Oops

I assume that this problem occurs because the name of the files. Originally they both are named "alternative_soundtracks_02.7z" but for some reason I have changed the names on the server, probably to make it more obvious which one is the first and which the second file.

I will fix this as soon as possible. I only have to decide whether a new split archiv or a single file of around 900 mb. Would the last possiblity a problem for anyone?

Anyway, thank you for the feedback and the hint to the bug Smile


Edit

Problem should be solved. I have replaced the split archive by a single file. If there is any further error or something to improve, let me know it Wink

*Any* changes to the galaxy map will require a new game start for the changes to take affect.

But haven't seen any changes in galaxy map.

Suns are more realistic but too colorated (they colorate stations and ships into brifght color :/)
Haven't seen really changes in backgrounds.
No cosmic error... But maybe i haven't see everything or maybe bad installing.

Will try with soundtrack.

I hope rebalancing mod will be available as soon as possible ^^

Thanks for your work.

@corhen

As fud said, it is necessary to restart. But there is a nice script from SymTec ltd., the [SCR][BETA][0.9.3][01.11.08] X3-X3TC-Converter Betatest which sould be capable of transfering your stations, ships (incl. commandos) and ranks from one of your saves to another.

@XFree

There were several misplaced suns and planets and adsigns placed within stations. I also re-changed the position of a couple of planets in the original X3R sectors back to their Reunion position because the TC change was not the best.

Thanks Smile

The map without new suns? Of course and it is already existing to download. It is the small link "DL EXCL Sun & INCL SID" at the end of the first post Smile

Alright, thank you. But I'll wait for the sector music ID list before I install the mod.

I have specific pieces of music in mind for certain sectors.

Well, you should have that. You will encounter a couple of repeating SIDs. These are there because the sectors (Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter) are one sector in my eyes which is just extended around the planet.

Here is the list:

Sectorsoundtrack-ID List

The Link will be also available in initial post.
