The problem with XRM is you can do whatever you want (remove engine trails, stop faction wars, reduce enemy spawn, clean the AI director, change light effects and so on) and XRM will still have massive lag spikes. Especially in sinza. The only method to get a lag free game when it comes to fleet fights is to install Litcubes Universe. I liked XRM alot, loved the eye candy and the love put into balancing and giving each ship a role... but performance wise it is still as bad as vanilla AP, if you don't remove engine trails, flying in some ships like the Thor is even worse.

According to my tests, removing the engine trails hasn't caused a notable performance impact. Just changing the fire rate and bullet speed of weapons, like in LU, yields an exceptionally big performance gain for me.

Litcube did also a ton of other stuff to improve the performance. And the engine traill part was particularly for some special ships like the Thor which without would make Sinza stutter because of graphical power need while everything else needs just CPU, so this just may say you have the much more powerful GPU than me.

Got back into X3 after a disastrous attempt at Rebirth.

Having this strange issue that Aldrin... is stupidly large and auto pilot seems to be broken.

Also ATF stations are just numbers in brackets.

Do you see a giant asteroid in the center of Aldrin?

If you got ReadText errors like with the ATF stations, you haven't installed XRM correctly. Please follow the instructions for all three parts exactly.

MAN!

I never actually installed the scripts properly. I just dumped them into the addon folder as Script_AP.


So... yeah, thats a problem.

Yet, even after all this, The ATF shipyard is readtext and now a bunch of my sectors are listed as unknown... I might have to do a clean install of X3 and give this more careful installation.

(Update!)

BOOM, solved everything, XRM is working 100% for me now!

Good gravy, those AGI drones are no joke!

Also, the Terren don't know how to build satellites?

Welp, I'm not surprised to see this thread is still active.

Imma reinstalling X3 right now and installing the mod afterwards. Anything I should know, any new versions since a few years ago, that sort of stuff?

The version linked in the first post is still recent and working fine with the newest X3 version. :)

Hi, folks. I'm having a bit of trouble installing this mod on the Steam version of AP. I got it working fine in TC, but it just doesn't want to work in AP. I followed the instructions on the first page, but no parts of the mod are working for me, and indeed I get no message at the beginning of a game informing me that XRM is active. I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing wrong, as the few places I could find where people had a similar problem were either extremely vague on what they did to fix the issue or had made mistakes that I hadn't. If anyone can try and help me out, I'd really appreciate it!

Just a wild guess, but did you only follow the TC instructions and then expect XRM to be applied to AP as well? Though both games are installed in the same directory, most modifications to TC (the base game folder) won't carry over to AP, which mostly uses stuff in the addon folder.

Oh, that must be it. I must have misread the instructions. I applied the mod to the base folder. Thanks for correcting me, I probably should have read a bit more closely.

I created an advanced modding package based on XRM.

Its AP only but it comes with an automated installation and selected fixes and extensions - alot problems people have will be solved with it.

It also fixes the performance problems by adding performance fixed and the X3 Customizer stuff, which fixes a real bug in the script system described some weeks ago.

Give it a try:

I'm pretty sure I installed the mod correctly, but there's this one type of NPC that keep flying Mammoths, despite belonging to factions that aren't Argon. They're called "Boron Military Supply Transporter", for example. They are very common and easy to spot, due to flying mammoths...

What can I do? Do I change around the numbering of the .cats and .dats? I read something about "generating wall file"... what the heck does that mean? Why is that not included in installation instructions?

Thanks in advance.
