Introduction of the X-UNIVERSE.

"The X-Universe mod is largely connected to the x1: past and future mod but with major differences. This mod is designed to be difficult and engaging for the experienced x player. Many players since xbtf including myself have begun to lose interest in the game series for many reasons. My goal is to solve that with this mod."

Combination with the Combat Mod.

"I maybe one of the more experienced modders of the x-games but I haven't had huge success. I started modding with my x1 team, with the mod x1: the pirates for x3: the reunion two years ago without a major release. However during that time I managed to get a promising new modder into the team, although by that time the mod was starting to die.

But that gave him time to build the first combat mod for x3: the reunion. I liked the mod and was watching his mod grow and helping were I could, and he managed to create a very popular combat mod series over on the TXU.

So now nearly a year of not modding that much I wanted to start a mod up that only I am developing, but since I am not skilled in all areas of modding I asked ulfius if I could build this mod around the combat mod 3 as it brought lots to the game, he agreed and said I could use any of his work in mine. This gave me a good starting point. Very helpful ..."
