Welcome!

This posting is meant as a repository for links to X2 fiction related material.

Until now, lots of what was written about the "X-Universe" actually took place in a multitude of parallel universes - and this even started within the games themselves! Perhaps - just perhaps - this great new forum will reduce the number of multiverses, and lead us all to a more coherent world.

Not TOO coherent, though Smile

Please PM me if you want me to add more links!

Helge
===========================================

The Argonopedia is surely one of the most comprehensive attempts at an X encylopedia. It looks pretty and has more info than you could eat in a week Smile Check it out!

Commander Jamieson's site (link broken) is one of the oldest and best-known X sites on the 'net. If you're not an X2-fan yet, you'll be after visiting here. Don't miss it!

Klarix's Trading and Screenshot site features sector descriptions and lots of info needed during the game.

The XbtfWiki (link broken) was originally meant as the definitive FictionFact bible of the X-Universe. It contains lots of useful information, but does stand and fall with user contributions...

Nopileos (link broken) is the name of a totally untypical Teladi and this is his (german language only) web site. Incidently, it's also the name of the sequel to Farnham's Legend...

I just knew bout that video after reading this topic Embarassed

What is that capital ship that destroys Split Raptor? Never seen it before. On the sidenote, X2 is my first X game. Did it appear on the previous X games?

Planet invasion like that would be so much fun. Hope Egosoft included it as new feature Smile

EDIT: ups... posted in the wrong board. Sorry, folks

Thanx! Who knows, maybe you'll see a novel from me on this game. You'll see a novel from me, that much is certain.

Which was noticeable to me:
It was much written and saved.
But it`s really uncertainly whether that is correct Sceptic

I ask myself: From where have you the data ?
From Egosoft or Helge Thinking

I recommend that you inquire you with your stories with persons, who have there notion (Egosoft, Helge, Steel, GEN-Nation , ...) Wink

Yes, it was a long time ago. If you look at it carefully you will see that Helge left the message there for posterity, and to point out the pointlessness of hacking into an open Wiki.

Hey,
Just to point out, of the 5 links given above, 2 are now dead (Commander Jamieson's site & The XbtfWiki), one is really cool but seriously retro (X-Tension era) and another's only in German! (not meaning to be rude, but this is the English Creative Universe, and not everyone is going to understand German).

The only link left that's genuinely useful for researching a story is Argonopedia which is a superb site (but even that's only updated as far as X2!)

My point is, I think this thread needs to be either (a) rejuvenated, or (b) de-stickified.

One possible new link is http://www.thexuniverse.com/ which has a new Wiki on the X-Universe.

I agree with The Zig! I do not claim to know enough about X2 or X3 in order to try doing a fresh write up, maybe we should put it to the Forum members to agree on new content?

Best wishes
Smile

Somebody would have to pm a moderator about these issues. Creative seems to be a bit shy of moderator activity due to its nature!
