Hello X-Space-pilots!

As you may have noticed EGOSOFT is planning to release a Superbox containing all the X-series titles along with lots of content made by fans of the series. Before I start listing all the content we'd like to see in this box, let me describe the purpose of the box and why we thought it was a good idea to publish it.

First of all I should explain that "Superbox" is more of a working title for this unofficial project than a fixed name. We haven't decided yet what name we will give it; as soon as we have made a decision you will be the first to know!

As you probably know, the 10-year story of the X-series came to a conclusion with X3: Terran Conflict. Over the years many fans of the series have come to these forums and many are still here in the community. They are sure to remember the humble beginnings of this story with Kyle William Brennan and his ship, the X-perimental. In X-Beyond the Frontier he lost contact with Earth as a result of a terrible accident involving his jumpdrive and had to fight against massive threats. In X-Tension he recovered a lost prototype ship belonging to the Paranid. In X2: The Threat and X3: Reunion his son, Julian Brennan, followed his footsteps and fought against more dangerous threats than his father could have ever done. In doing so he rescued millions of people in Omicron Lyrae and even made it possible to reconnect the X-Universe with the Sol system. In X3: Terran Conflict you had to maintain peace while the Kha'ak and the Xenon, the descendants of the Terraformers, continued to threaten not only the people of the X-Universe, but also the humans of the Sol system and of course you! This was the only way to grant both sides a peaceful future together.

All the games mentioned above will be in this special box, that much is for sure! But the games of the X-series also motivated many people to create expansions, write scripts, fan-fiction and many other things. To make this superbox worthy of the name, we are calling upon our trusted community to make suggestions of possible fan-made content to go into the box. The potential variety of the content is huge, so don't be hesitant when making your suggestions. This box shouldn't just be something from EGOSOFT for fans, but by fans for fans. You wrote many useful guides, tutorials and HowTo's that we'd also like to add to the content of the superbox. Tell us what you want to see in this box and we'll do our best to add it.

To keep an overview of the collected content we've decided to separate this request into five threads. The content we want is so huge that it would be easy to lose track if we collected it all in one thread.

So, we are separating the subject areas into the following categories:

  • X-Universe

    Here we are going to collect:


    We will look through all of this content and decide which to put into the box. We ask you to always post a link to the content you want us to include so that we don't have to spend too much time searching for it.


  • X3: Terran Conflict - Scripts & Modding Forum

    Here we will collect the following things:

      Scripts
      Mods
      Scripting and Modding tutorials
      AL-Plug-ins
      MD-Missions
      MD-Tutorials
      Plug-ins & Tools
      Ships (need to be installable with Cycrow's Ship Installer)

    Please note that any scripts you suggest need to have an interface, so that they don't need to be executed via the Script Editor.


  • X3: Reunion - Scripts & Modding Forum

    Here we are collecting:

      Scripts
      Mods
      Scripting and Modding tutorials
      AL-Plug-ins
      MD-Missions
      MD-Tutorials
      Plug-ins & Tools
      Ships (need to be installable with Cycrow's Ship Installer)

    Please note that any scripts you suggest need to have an interface, so that they don't need to be executed via the Script Editor.


  • X2: The Threat - Scripts & Modding Forum

    Here we will collect:

      Scripts
      Mods
      Scripting and Modding tutorials
      Plug-ins & Tools
      AL-Plug-ins

    Please note that any scripts you suggest need to have an interface, so that they don't need to be executed via the Script Editor.


  • Creative Universe

    Here we are collecting:

      Fan-fiction
      Wallpapers
      Music

    Regarding music titles, these must be fan-made rather than commercially released tracks that require licensing, and must also not already have been used in any of the games. Wallpapers should have X as a theme and not your favourite cars; the same goes for fan-fiction. Since we know your creativity knows no limits, anything not listed here is also allowed as long as it relates to X.


As you can see the box is turning into a really big project. EGOSOFT isn't just going to ask you for content, but will also be adding its own materials that will definitely throw you out of your pilot's seat! We want this superbox to be as big as possible so we are asking for your help in collecting good, helpful materials, and are looking forward to your suggestions.

Enjoy!

It's great to see this sticky up in this forum now - I've been following it in TC S&M and I'd encourage everyone to put their thoughts and ideas down, after all how many times do the end users get to have so much say in what the end product is? Very Happy

*EDIT*

I'd like to see it called the A-Z of X Smile

I would think that the Xtreme version would be an appropriate name.

Thirded.

Some really nice, well done, player made sector maps for each version of the game would be a really nice thing to include.

Now I realise that my original hand drawn X:BTF map isn't quite up to scratch...

This is just a personal opinion. I like the Power Plants and the Perseus shot. I would like the Terran shot except that there shouldn't be asteroids in the Jupiter Sector right? Wink As for the HUB, the X2 Titan doesn't look to bad, but it still makes me wonder.

Is this release going to be German-Only or will I be able to pick it up / get an English language version in the UK?

I really like the minimalist aesthetic in this shot I took :

It was never planned to make this box a German only product, so you will see it in the stores in the UK sooner or later.

Yes, and i hope that this box will be some time here on egosoft shop to buy. Not like X3: terran conflict ony 2-3 weeks... You can now only to buy
this game on steam. I hate this steam. It is not customer friendly.
You have only 5 time activation per game. And i change my pc 2 times on year, at least graphic card. I want to buy a boxed version of the game,
not some download without box, manual and other things.
And than you ask people to noty copy the games. The game from steam is like any pirate version only it is legal. And we must pay 40$ for this.
Yeah right. I want to buy this terran conflict and i am ready to pay 60$ for
boxed version, because the game is good, big, and you have 3 years to play. So i think that this "SUPERBOX" will need to be only a boxed version of the game. After all is a legendary pack and acummulative work over 10 years and dont diserve to be some download and remove this copy protection from it. Put some serial keys.

Put this box on preorder here on egosoft shop.

P.S. I want to see first 3 x games in terran conflict engine if is posibile.
I will be happy with mod to play. My pc won't run first 2 x games.
P.S. 2. Make online version to. And you will rock not eve. I hate eve. Is boring.

THANKS!!1

Each activation used resets after a while, not too long, a month or so. Then it is available once more. It's just not a problem.
