X-Tended - Terran Conflict (XTC)
The first trailer of X-Tended - Terran Conflict
It has been a long time since we released anything to the public, and as we are now in the release candidate stage for the mod, we felt we should reward everyone's patience with something a little bit special. Enjoy.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- When will XTC be released?
As soon as it is done. We are doing this as our hobby and aren’t being paid, so our progress is not as fast as one you’d expect from a software company.
- Do I have to start a new game?
Yes, XTC includes a completely new universe with roughly 190 new sectors and many other new settings and scripts. There is no way to avoid a new start.
- Can I play with my old savegames?
No. As there is a completely new universe, new ship and factory layout and major edits to all game files, every non-XTC savegame will not work.
- Can I return to the old universe from inside XTC?
No. The old universe is not available within the XTC. However, you will have 190 completely new sectors to explore. This was done for performance reasons as well as lore and integrity. There is no hope of ever having the old sectors back.
- Can I use XTC together with mod / script XYZ?
There is currently no way to know this. XTC makes changes in nearly every game file, thus installing any other mod or script will most likely lead to an incompatibility. It is up to the authors of these mods to release a XTC-compatible version of their work. Scripts can be problematic in one or another way, but currently we simply don't know what will be compatible and what won’t. XTC itself comes with a ton of features and scripts, so a good part of third-party scripts will be redundant anyway. We will not make XTC compatible with the hundreds of scripts out there. If you want XTC to work with XYZ, please contact the author of XYZ, not us.
- Will I be able to play the Terran Conflict Plots?
No. But we plan to do our own plot(s).
- Will the ships, weapons and missiles be rebalanced in the XTC?
Yes, we are putting a huge effort into balancing everything from scratch to give a better feeling to gameplay.
- Will there be new weapons?
Yes, there will be a large number of new weapons, which will be re-divided in sets that only certain races are able to use, each race having its own set of weapons compatible to their ships. Additionally we have generic weapons, which are available for every race. Most of the old weapons will undergo serious changes and can thus be considered “new” as well.
- Will there be new ships?
Yes, there will be new ships. Most of the ships from XTM (X3R) will be included, some of them improved specifically for X3TC. W have also created a number of new ship designs.
- Will there be new sounds?
Yes, there will be new sounds: A large variety of new ambient sector tracks, completely new weapon-sounds and new battle tracks as well as a few other improvements sound-wise.
- Will cockpits be included in XTC?
- Will there be ships of other mods or SciFi-TV-movies included?
No. We only use models created by our team and imported from the XTM. There will be no ship included that you have already seen in any other mod (apart from XTM).
