It's always good to see, that some guys are working on X2 mods - that's why I'm proud of saying that I'm one of those :D
The design seems interesting - but will there be complete new ships too (without vanilla bodies)?

Unfortunately will not be completely new ships with new bodies, because we are not so clever in moding yet, we use only standard game bodies, because in standard bodies are very easy to change the sizes and textures, but it does not make our mod less interesting than others mods.

I wonder what this might be?

Anyway, I assume the pictures are renders, not real screenshots, aren't they?
Resizing original parts can be trouble if not done right. In case of problems, feel free to ask.

We plan that the second mod version will contains: new stations, new wares, new weapons, new rockets and maybe more, but we can not say 100% sure that everything goes as we thought, but we try to creat it all.
Pictures are renders from 3DS MAX, but all ships was tested in the game. Currently all ships pictures will be renders from 3DS MAX, but when the first mod version was completed, then we created all ships screenshots from the game.

To be critical I do not like those ships, they are just like the normal ships with added extras. However it will be interesting to see how you pick up after this comment.

X2 is getting rather old, and an old game with old style mods make you think been there, done that. So yeah, just try and make something new. Me and Shadow know you can do it :wink:

most of our ships are done, but we might rework some.
What we're working at atm is the story line and the remaining ships (and some cool extras ;) )

But this isn't the place to discouss that! :P

Yes, some ships are little modified, we creating new ships and modified standard ships only from standard X2 bodies parts. We modified standard ships to be looks little different from original X2 ships.
Some like our mod, some don't like. X2 are old, but i think that's best space simulator game.

X2 may be old, but I too think it's the best space game. And what makes it even better is the X2 community that has built and is still building mods.

Creating a mod is a lot of work - and it's best if you do the things you like to see in X2. So keep to the things you like to do (or can do - if you don't know how to do it, you can always ask).

Some great mods don't use any totally new designs. There are always people that want other things in a mod than the things you create or want to be in the mod.

Ok, people want to see new designs. This gives you a hint, what people want. But new designs are hard to create. It's much easier to say: "Make new designs".

Using X2 bodies has a great advantage: you get similar designs, easily recognisable.

Keep up your work :thumb_up: :wink:
