SWLU is a mod for X3AP Litcube’s Universe 1.7.2 built from the ground-up originally using ship assets from Mikhail Skatchkav’s Star Wars Reborn Mod for X3AP.

All ships have had their thruster effects, camera positions, and gun placements fixed or tweaked in addition to the many gameplay changes that come with LU.

305 total Star Wars ships (counting variants) are added in addition to all ~400 vanilla/LU ships, and can be bought in special sectors.

With LU, you can finally have the massive X3AP star wars space battles you have always dreamed of!

Credit for the original ship models goes to Warb Null, Jeroenimo, Dinoff, and MikSka’s team behind Star Wars Reborn. Also thanks to Litcube for making LU and his extremely useful Excel editors. Cockpit assets originally by PSCO1, Swefan Italia, and Klaus11.
