[MOD] X3 AP Ring Gate Mod 23-11-2012

Post by qwizzie » Fri, 23. Nov 12, 10:10

Decided to upload this (mini) mod in present state, mod will include :

revamped commonwealth gate + ring (new)
revamped terran gate
revamped asteroids (darker color)
revamped hud (a mixture of ulfius's Military Mod & Familiar's Pure X Mod, credit goes to those two modders)


**********************************************
Download link + videos : https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=fae3da27 ... F440%21105
**********************************************

Download size of mod itself : 15 MB


It can be found in folder ''Ring Gate Mod'' which has some videos
and two winrar files to download.

One winrar file has a gate-swirl (credits for the gate swirl goes to TrixX who provided it to me for my Visual Revamp Mod some time ago) , the other has no gate swirl.

Just download, unpack with winrar and place cat & dat files 04 inside the addon folder which forms your X3 AP installation directory
(C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\X3 Terran Conflict\addon). If cat & dat file 04 already exist there then renumber to +01

Sorry, I'm pretty newbie so I can't offer any advice but it does look pretty :)

Now that's a very colourful gate! =)

There's just a strange distortion below it. Looks like bullets circling below the gate at a right angle to it.
Is that an unrelated mod that ended up on the video?

There is no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

new video, this time with a gate-swirl (thanks to trixx who contributed this to my Visual Revamp Mod some time ago)

To Gazz : the bullets circling the gate is part of this new mod, it is what i call the gate ring. Egosoft introduced with X3 Albion Prelude new equipment docks with certain effects to them. I implemented such effect to the gate, creating this ''ring'' effect.

EDIT date 27-11-2012 : looks like the presence of the ring around the commonwealth gate forces ships on automated course to go just below or just beside the actual gate to warp through (playership on automated course as well). So i'm thinking of either removing the gate ring or leaving it as is (depending on feedback).
