Hi, I wanted to install IE and IEX in my clean AP installation but it looks like I already have 05/06 dat files in my addons folder. Your guide says:

2). Copy & rename the cat/dat to ...\X3TC\addon\05.cat & ...\X3TC\addon\05.dat
4). Copy & rename the cat/dat to ...\X3TC\addon\06.cat & ...\X3TC\addon\06.dat

Am I supposed to overwrite these files? Usually you need to rename the dat file to a +1 number than the ones already in there.

A clean AP installation only has four cat/dat pairs.

Just to say I checked my Steam folder for AP (clean)
and there are 4 pairs

My LU folder has 9

So that cannot be a clean install

Well - I had TC installed but I uninstalled it before installing AP. But nevermind - I just did a backup of those 2 files, pasted in the mod and it looks like everything is working.

No crashes so I'm guessing it's fine :wink:

I would do a fresh instal
Obviously your instal is not clean
You never know what else may go awry later on

When I try to click on the IEX link it says it's expired. How do I get my hands on it?

(For LU 1.7.0)

Quick question - does anyone know if this is compatible with the Star Wars mod by mikhailskatchkov? His mod changes some of the backgrounds already so I'm not really sure.

@ Slushman: Well I don't know if having the vanilla and mod author's backgrounds overwritten by somebody else's may make some of the gameplay text seem odd. This gets worse if the gameplay mod creates specific appearance sectors for plot purposes etc. You might be able to play around with the order in which some extracted background files are loaded - not sure.

The chances are that the game itself will still play properly as long as the new backgrounds are installed properly.

Apologies... I've been on my hols... :)

I'm hoping that I've updated the download links on the OP successfully with a new "bt link" which works alongside the Google one... please let me know asap if there's still an issue.

There is not a SW/IEX compatibility mod' out yet and as mikhailskatchkov's mod uses an altered map file + TFiles which IEX will get in the way of... however if you place the IE+IEX cat/dat files before the Star Wars mod' you'll certainly get some of the goodness... but not all... and some of it may look odd...

May the farce be with you my son... :roll:

The first entry indicates only LU 1.7.0 compatibility. Is it safe to use with 1.7.2?

I think it is. I don't think there were any map changes between 1.7.0 -> 1.7.2
