——| Version 1.2.8 (April 1, 2020) |——

Main changes:

– Added some code to the NPC salvager scripts so that they can’t claim any abandoned ships that have full hull hitpoints. This protects all the repair ships and it also protects all the random ships I hid around the map.

– Drastically increased the price of slaves, making that a viable option for making money in the early game

– New loading screens from users @Rocket Man and @abbe026. If anyone has an excellent screenshot, post it on the Discord server and it will become a credited loading screen if it’s good enough.

– Start with reputation -3 with all factions except New Republic (0) and Rebels (+3)
– Start with three orbital weapons platforms containing 5 black crystals each (worth 10 million per crystal)
– The catch is that your OWPs are in distant Rebel sectors across the map, so you will have to find a way through hostile space (or improve relations) among many different factions to reach them and claim the treasure

Balance Overhaul

* Rebalanced all M6 Corvettes to be generally cheaper, faster, and with more consistent hull strength

* Nerfed all M7 Frigates on turning radius (pitch, roll, yaw) so they fly more like bricks. This removes the immersion-breaking sight of Nebulon-B Frigates swooping and diving around the battlefield. It also makes it easier to get into flanking positions against them when flying smaller, faster ships.

* Rebalanced all M7 Frigates in order to moderate outlying overpowered or underpowered individuals and to make hull hitpoints more consistent

* Rebalanced all M1 Carriers and M2 Destroyers for better consistency

– Adjusted all equipment on starting ships due to rebalancing (for new gamestarts)

– Chance for pirates to use ships of other races increased from 10% to 25%

– Lasertowers no longer drain weapon energy from their targets

– Removed the “paralysis” effect of the OCV weapons added in a previous version

* Removed ALL thruster trails from star wars ships. The vanilla ships still have them though

* Shuffled the locations of the hidden repair ships and other goodies hidden by SWLU

* Added two new Xenon sectors bordering Uranus 2 in Imperial space

* Added Imperial Navy patrol to Uranus 2

* Uranus 2 brighter background

Hangar Shields

——| Version 1.2.4 (July 7, 2019) |——

Turbo Booster is Here!

Although you need to use your imagination a little bit…

Turbo Booster


(-) New features that should work in existing saves from old versions.

(+) Features that will not work without a new gamestart, but you can keep playing your old save anyway. Note that you can get ALL the features on an old save using Litcube’s Import/Export.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

– Implemented Cycrow’s Turbo Booster from the old X3AP bonus package. Buy it at equipment docks and use it with a hotkey you can now set in the control menu under “interface”. Sold by the Mandalorians, and also in the Star Wars special sectors.

+ Rebel Recruit gamestart now starts with a turbo booster and fuel.

+ Complete rebalance of fighter stats (M5, M4, M3).

– Doubled forward acceleration on the space suit (no more needing to fly sideways).

– Added SETA to the space suit.

– Trade stations now require race rank 3 instead of 6 due to how important they are to mobile mining setups, setting up quickshuttles, and TUG.

– Fixed and standardized all marine capacities for ships based on class:
– M3/M4/M5: 0 Marines
– TP: 20-40 Marines
– TS: 5 Marines (not actually boardable)
– TM: 5 Marines
– M6: 8 Marines
– M8: 5 Marines
– M7: 20 Marines
– TL: 20 Marines
– M2: 22 Marines
– M1: 22 Marines

– Renamed some vanilla goods (like Teladianium) to star wars names, such as Durasteel, Power converters, Motivators, Bacta, Plasteel, and Blue Milk just to name a few.

– Renamed Goner to Jedi

– Renamed “Nividium” to “Amdium” in favor of the company I work for IRL rahter than our competitor Nvidia (lol).

+ Unknown Sector Omega (The Final Battle) now has a much cooler background fitting for the OCV homeworld

+ Turned up the brightness of the ambient lighting for every single sector in the game (with a few exceptions) so that ships don’t appear as dark silhouettes with only thrusters visible. Note that the game also contains gamma settings.

– Clone Commando gamestart now has less marines on the starting Nu-class Shuttle, so that you can use it to store excess marines while boarding M6 ships without having to launch all 20 and then watch them not be able to fit on the ship.

– Re-added the boarding music/shooting sounds so that boarding isn’t silent anymore.

– Added more life to the Jedi Order sector.

– Made those random small Xenon fighter squadrons that spawn all over the place 10% as frequent as they used to be. I know they are annoying, they were actually added by me in the first place. Still debating whether I want to keep them in the game in the future.

– Made CCDS Mk.1 availible at the Star Wars sector equipment docks.

– Drastically reduced the price of CCDS Mk.2 from 5 million to just over 1 million.

+ Removed more hard-coded Litcube vanilla X3AP ships from the map generation (in Split Fire).

+ Munificent Frigate (Separatist M7)
+ Removed ability to use heavy guns on left/right turrets, only medium now

+ Action VI (Separatist/Mandalorian TS)
+ Shield capabilities fixed from 2 x 1MJ to 2 x 25MJ

– Crusader Corvette (Mandalorian M6)
– Fixed left/right turrets not working
– Improved camera positions for top/bottom turrets

– Gozanti Vanguard (Empire TM)
– Fixed rear turret not rotating freely
– Revised camera positions

– Consular Corvette (Republic M6)
– Completely removed top/bottom turrets for balance

+ U-Wing (Rebel TP)
+ Reduced shileds by half
+ Reduced hull strength to half

## Huge thanks to Tormox for the following! ##

– Gozanti Super Freighter (New Republic/Empire TS)
– Fixed rear turret not rotating freely
– Revised camera positions

– YT-1300 (Rebel/Empire TS)
– Reduced polygon count in model, slightly reduces loading times
– New optimized ship textures for both variants that load in a fraction of the time.

– Venator Star Destroyer (Republic M1)
– Complete turret rework
– Revised camera positions
+ Reduced ability to use Ion Cannon due to the increase in turrets (uses only Fusion Beam now)

– MC80 Liberty Hauler (Rebel TL)
– Fixed broken camera position

– Assault Frigate MK2 (New Republic M2)
– Fixed broken turrets detached from model

– Legacy Star Destroyer (Republic M2)

– Main guns can now use corvette-grade weapons

– Nebulon-B Frigate (Rebel M7)
– Complete turret overhaul with animated turrets
– Added docking support for a TS ship

Most Important New Feature:

– In this update, as stated above, I renamed a lot of the goods and wares to fit in to the Star Wars universe. This means that Admiral Ackbar Breakfast Cereal is now replacing Boron BoFu as the New Republic’s sole food item, complete with factories all over the universe and traders shipping it everywhere, contributing to the galactic cereal monopoly. Your tongue can’t repel a flavor of that magnitude!

Admiral Ackbar Cereal (I hope everyone knows this old meme…)

——| Version 1.2.3 (June 18, 2019) |——


– New features that should work in existing saves from old versions

+ Features that will not work without a new gamestart, but you can keep playing your old save anyway

– Fixed race relations for real this time. Empire/Rebels will now try to kill each other, and police will no longer come after you for killing separatist ships in republic space, etc. This greatly improves the Jedi Survivor start, as the New Republic won’t prevent you from killing your enemies in their sectors any more.

Proper Race Relations

– Fixed NPC fleets not using their “advanced” ship variants. For example, the New Republic only used E-Wings in 1.2.2, and now correctly uses their B-Wings and X-Wings in their fleets.

– Wrote a script that jumps all Xenon fighters in the player’s starting sector out of existance when starting a new game (when the SWLU welcome message appears). Sorry for any ruined gamestarts in the past!

+ Wrote a script to initiate any marines on the player’s starting ship in a new gamestart at 3 or 4 stars. This means that you can play the Clone Commando start for real now, able to go into a pirate sector and board any ships you want. However, remember to scan for those pesky anti-boarding upgrades!

– Buffed boarding pod speed by 200m/s.

– SETA is now directly built-in for ships, meaning there is never a need to buy it and it is impossible to lose it and get caught without it. I don’t think this will retroactively install into ships in an existing save, but any new ships you buy should be covered.

– All mining ships now come pre-installed with the following software so that they are fully ready to mine once the player equips them with mining lasers. This is to remove the confusion stemming from new players not knowing what is needed.

– Ore Collector
– Navigation Command Software
– Special Command Software

+ Moved all Orbital Weapons Platforms (OWPs) farther away from their respective gates in border sectors. This small change makes the entire universe much more dangerous, especially in these sectors (adjacent to pirate/xenon territory). Does not affect existing saves.

– Added “Prototype” ship variants. These can ONLY be purchased as blueprints or purchased as used ships from NPCs in trade missions. In addition to having greatly enhanced stats, they are capable of using Kyon Emitters. There are 20 in total across all factions. The capital ships are also capable of carrying stations (ST-class cargo), like a TL.

– Old Republic (Yaki) are now capable of giving the player “Buy Blueprints” missions just like the other races. These are classified as “Think” missions (blue light bulb symbol), and only appear in the game once the player has the PHQ.

– OCV lasers (Kyon Emitters) now disable any ship they shoot, reducing their speed by 90% for 3 seconds each time they impact.

– Note that these deliberately-overpowered guns are only obtainable by killing and looting OCV ships, and can only be equipped by “prototype” ship variants.

– Note that Gamma Kyon Emitters are ST-class cargo (station-size), meaning that only a TL or a prototype capital ship will be able to carry them. Your reaper shuttle will likely ignore these.

– Repair laser now does quadruple shield damage. Be careful repairing your ships in dangerous environments.

+ Removed LU’s hard-coded Teladi-owned Taipans from sector New Income (vanilla ships).

– Swapped Clone Commando and Republic Senator starting sectors so that the senator is able to spend their money on SWLU ships at the start.

– The YT-1300 Millennium Falcon variant is now actually obtainable. It only appears as a used ship for sale from NPCs in the Rebel Alliance or Galactic Empire.

+ The New Republic sector now sells ore collectors at the equipment dock. However, this is pointless because you never need to buy them again since all mining ships now come with them built-in.

– Re-named all “Singularity Time Engine Accelerator” to “S.E.T.A.” to make it easier to distinguish in menus.

– TS, TP, TM, and M8 ships now go out with more of a bang rather than the tiny puff of smoke they used to emit when destroyed. The death explosions are larger and more fitting now.

**** Ship Changes **** (Probably won’t affect ships already existing, but affects newly-purchased ships)

– Z-95 AF4 (Republic M4)
– Enhanced thruster effects

– R-41 Starchaser (Pirate M3)
– Enhanced thruster effects

– YT-2000 (New Republic/Remnant TS)
– Increased cargobay and increased price

– E-Wing Miner (New Republic M4)
– Increased Price

– YT-1760 (Civilian TS)
– Slight increase in price and maximum upgradable speed

– Delta-7 Jedi Starfighter (Jedi/Pirate M5)
– 4x faster acceleration to bring them in line with other M5 ships

– Venator Star Destroyer (Republic M1)
– 2.5x hull strength increase

– Legacy Star Destroyer (Republic M2)
– 2x hull strength increase

——| Version 1.2.2 (June 1, 2019) |——

– Replaced X3’s NPC portraits with static images of star wars characters.

No more old portraits

– While I think this is an improvement overall, the voices don’t really make sense anymore because you will run into clone troopers saying “Teladi want profitsss!!!” or something dumb like that. I don’t have the resources for a voice overhaul.

– Also, because the Yaki share portraits with the pirates, I was unable to give portraits to Old Republic characters and all Old Republic NPCs look like pirates.

– Due to video file quirks I do not have the means to solve, the portraits blink for 1 frame at the end of their “animations” to another picture. This repeats if you let an NPC sit on their “idle animation”. I will keep on trying to fix this in the future.

– Did a hard rename of all instances of “Argon” in the text files to “Rebel”, and for the other races as well.

– Renamed all instances of “Gate” to “Hyperspace Lane”

– It’s very likely that I broke some of the game’s text by doing this. For example, “Platform” became “PlRemnantorm” because “ATF” was replaced with “Remnant”. I also caught “FriHyperspace Lane”, which used to be “Frigate”. Please let me know if you find more broken text.

– Added version information to the game launcher

– Deleted all LU gamestarts

– All gamestarts now start with 100 salvage insurance rather than just 1

– Space suit now has double speed, acceleration, and weapon energy

– Imperial Light Cruiser (Imperial M7)
– Forward guns reduced from 10 to 6

– Arquitens Cruiser (Republic M7)
– Player relative value fixed to be the same as NPC relative value
– This only relates to PHQ production costs

– Phanon and OCV scripts now initialize sequentially rather than simultaneously to lessen CPU load at the start of a new game. You can now run SETA at the beginning of a new game without worrying about lag.

– OCV now has 1/2 chance each tick instead of 1/3 chance each tick to generate resources needed for expansion.

– Changed OCV resource generation yield from 5-35 to 20-35 (random int range)

– Cut the minimum and maximum times between OCV invasions in half

——| Version 1.2.1 (May 24, 2019) |——

(The Cockpit Update)

– Greatly increased the amount of Xenon fleets in the universe at any given time and also decreased the time it takes for them to respawn. This isn’t quite apocalyptic levels, but you should see a lot more Xenon attacks throughout the universe in border sectors.

– Reduced speed of all heavy lasers drastically to around ~1100 m/s and increased their projectile lifetimes respectively so that their range remains the same. This means that the lasers travel slower and are less effective against fighters:

– Fusion Beam Cannon (FBC)
– Phased Array Laser Cannon (PALC)
– Photon Artillery Array (PAA)
– Tri Beam Cannon (TBC)
– Cluster Flak Array (CFA)
– Starburst Shockwave Cannon (SSC)
– Flak Artillery Array (FAA)

– Updated “New Republic Admiral” and “Imperial Remnant Warlord” to use the “Advanced” ship variants introduced in 1.2.0 rather than the old Rebel/Empire versions.

– Added gates to the Yaki area to improve Old Republic gameplay:
– Weaver’s Tempest & Xenon Core 031
– Old Republic & Duke’s Vision
– Old Republic & Rhy’s Crusade

New Connections

– [Spoiler for previous versions] Removed the free MC40a ship from Xenon Core 031 because the sector is easier to access now

– Added jumpdrives for sale in the Old Republic sector

– D-5 Mantis (Old Republic TS)
– Fixed broken top and bottom turrets
– Changed turret model for top turret

– Harrower (Old Republic M2)
– 2GJ shields from 4 to 5
– 1/3 extra hull strength

– Updated TIE Fighter cockpit graphics
– Added PSCO1’s animated cockpit screens
– Used some high-res textures from Swefan Italia’s cockpit retexture, some cockpits will freeze the game for a brief second when you jump into a ship as a result. This shouldn’t hinder gameplay too much.
– Many custom retextures of key cockpit textures to be less rusty/brown like X3AP and more gray/black like star wars

– Removed vanilla ships
– NPCs don’t use X3AP ships at all anymore. All traders, police, military, etc. will use star wars ships only. Pirates included.

– Goner ships in Elysium of Light are the only remaining X3AP NPC ships

– Made NPC supply TLs more common

– *And most importantly*…

– Changed the “combat alert” sound effect to something less obnoxious

* Here is what that new Venator texture looks like:


——| Version 1.1.0 (April 28, 2019)|——

– Imperial Remnant Warlord (Gamestart)
– Fixed Raider corvettes (including player ship) so they now correctly have guns installed on their rear turrets
– Moved starting sector to Unknown Sector Eta due to lag caused by the border control NPCs in the Imperial Remnant sector

– New Republic Admiral (Gamestart)
– Updated weapon loadout on player ship (Assault Frigate Mk.2) to reflect updated laser compatibility

– Empire’s Finest (Gamestart)
– Wingmen now spawn farther away from player so they don’t collide at the start of the game

– Tartan Patrol Cruiser (Imperial M6)
– Improved thruster effects
– Fixed broken main guns
– Adjusted front camera position
– Removed redundant and broken front turret
– Removed ability to use boarding pods and wraith swarm missiles

– Acclamator Hauler (Imperial TL)
– Removed ability to use ID weapons
– Added ability to use IPG weapons

– Pirate Corellian Gunship (Pirate M6)
– Now able to use PSG, IPG weapons. Previously was only able to use fighter weapons.

– Dreadnought Heavy Cruiser (Mandalorian M7 and Remnant M7)
– Removed capital weapons from main guns, only availible on front turrets now
– Main guns can only use heavy weapons and below

– Pirate DP-37 (Pirate M7)
– Now able to use PSG weapons

– Pirate AEG-77 Vigo (Pirate M6)
– Main guns from 4 to 6

– Pirate Skipray Blastboat (Pirate M3)
– Removed ability to use PBE weapons

– Assault Frigate Mk.1 (New Republic M7)
– Forward turrets removed and converted into main guns
– Basically, this lets you shoot while flying instead having turrets on the front of the ship

– OR Shuttle (Old Republic TS)
– Added ability to use PRG and EBC weapons

– Hammerhead Cruiser (Old Republic M7)
– Added ability to use PALC weapons

– Pirate Havoc (Pirate M3)
– Added ability to use MD weapons

– All star wars ships now come pre-installed with combat command software if they are M5, M4, M3, M8, M6, M7, M1, M2

– All star wars ships now come pre-installed with trade command software if they are TS, TM, TL

– All star wars ships now come pre-installed with life support if they are TP

– No more built-in triplex scanners for star wars ships except Jedi starfighters, TIE Advanced, and TIE Phantom

– Star wars mining ships no longer come with any built-in upgrades

– Added some cockpits, adjusted camera positions accordingly
– A-Wing (Rebel M5)
– TIE Fighter (Empire M5)

– Many, many more cockpits to come in future updates

– All star wars ships no longer have the same laser availability for all turrets. Previously, they could use any of their allowed weapons on any turret. Now, each turret of each ship has different laser compatibility, which is how it always should have been and how X3AP normally does it. In general, rear and bottom turrets can use less-powerful lasers than the main guns, front turrets, and left/right ones. Top turrets depend on the ship. Obviously, you can see all of the changes in the ship “info” screen in-game as there are too many changes to list here.


– Changed warp tunnel from Litcube’s rainbow stripes to a re-colored version of the vanilla one similar to MikSka’s version to resemble star wars hyperspace

Warp Tunnel

– No content from 1.1.0 requires a new game because it does not contain any changes to the map file

——| Version 1.0.2 (April 20, 2019)|——

– Corellian Corvette (Rebel M6)
– Forward guns increased from 2 to 4

– Pirate Corellian Corvette (Pirate M6)

– (TS) YV-100 Miner (Republic)
– (M5) TIE Fighter Miner (Empire)
– (TS) Zeta-class Miner (Empire)
– (TS) Old Republic Miner (Old Republic)

– New mining ships can be found at the debug and testing shipyard as well as all of the normal star wars faction shipyards across the regular map.

– Changed NPC jobs so that they only use the new mining ships instead of X3AP mining ships.

– Attempted to fix rare O.B.S. cases of Argon Mammoths being used in the place of Paranid and Split NPCs and mission ships.

– Rebel Recruit now starts with 2 PAC and 2 HEPT instead of 4 PAC.

– Replaced broken Orbital Defense Stations with Argon Equipment Docks in Empire/Remnant star wars sectors. This allows you to equip ships directly from the shipyard as normal.

EQ Dock Fix

– Note that for the map changes to take place (fixed Imperial docks, new mining ships available at shipyards), a new game is required. Your old 1.0.1 saves should still work just fine, but you will only be able to obtain the new mining ships from bailed NPCs, and will have to deal with the old broken docks.

——| Version 1.0.1 (April 12, 2019)|——

– MC80 Liberty Hauler (Rebel TL)
– Added thruster effects
– BUG: The main camera is stuck inside the ship. Setting up cameras in the normal manner does not fix this issue nor does adding new camera objects. Either fly this ship in third person or don’t fly it at all (it is slow and no guns) unless you want to deal with a busted camera.

– Kandosii (Mandalorian M1)
– Added thruster effects

– Lancer Frigate (Imperial Remnant M6)
– Removed forward-facing turrets, replaced with new forward-facing guns (main cockpit)
– Reduced backwards turrets from 5 to 2 (10 to 4 lasers)
– Reduced docking slots from 3 to 2
– Re-adjusted to 4 turrets on left, 4 turrets on right (8 lasers on each side)
– Added thruster effects

– Updated the Lancer Frigate loadouts in the Imperial Remnant Warlord gamestart to accommodate
the new weapon adjustments

– Added the tag “[UNSTABLE]” to the Self-Aware Droid gamestart and the Black Sun Outlaw gamestart
to signify how they are likely to have issues upon startup.

– Rebel Recruit gamestart now starts with max engine tunings

– Mandalorian Outcast gamestart now starts with max engine tunings

– Added the Havoc Starfighter (Pirate M3)
– This nimble M3 has 6 forward lasers, 2 forward turret lasers, 2 rear turret lasers
– 5 25MJ shields
– Available in the debug and testing mode and in the pirate sector
– A new game is required to make it available in the pirate shipyard but it should start appearing anyway in pirate fleets
– Added to O.B.S. (will appear in missions as well)
