  1. X - Division New Dawn V 1.00.10 for 0.35.0+ XCE We are in the sky ... We are on the ground ... We are a paramilitary organisation ... We have the best of the best - with some personal issues here and there. Real characters as you say nowadays ... We do everything, from stealing to protecting transports, smuggleing weapons for those who can pay for it. We destroy organisations if the price is right and provide safe routes from A to B, even through hell if it has to be ... Sometimes we also do some good guy stuff, but dont ask for it, except you can put enough money on the table ... Our people are unhonorable discharged veterans or geniuses who dont feel quite valued in their former organisation. Some average guys as well who are attracted to the way we do things ... but honestly they have to be a bit crazy to be hanging around those guys ... say us ... ... everybodys a bit crazy here ... We have been hired by some wealthy individuals who think we can save the earth and believe in our methods. This group has put their faith in us ... and most importantly, their money. I guess it is time to do some good guy stuff again ! Whats my spleen ? World Domination ! Everybody ought to have a goal, no ? But if these aliens do as they please there will be nothing left to rule over. What is yours, commander ? Welcome to X-Division !

Questions & Answers 3. Installation 0. The base vanilla version has to be 1.65+ . 1. To avoid complications unsubscribe to all other mods on steam, and delete your your whole mods/.. folder. Then make a fresh install of xenonauts. X-Division 1.00.00 is not compatible with earlier versions. 2. Install the latest XCE version. For windows steam users right click on Xenonauts in your library > Porperties > Betas > community - Xenonauts: Community Edition branch For GOG/linux steam users follow the latest installation instructions here: http://www.goldhawkinteractive.com/forums/index.php?/forum/23-xce-release-announcements/ Linux steam users will need to run X:CE through WINE or a similar program. 3. If you downloaded the steam workshop support mod install it now. This is to show some support but has no other purpose than that. 3.5 Start up the game at least once and exit it properly. 4. Download all 3 parts of X-Division 1.00.00: Download ( Part 1 MD5: d46af869d5435a9c425d51acd1442897, Part 2 MD5: c57b4fb563ca419c9e455f0908701fe9 , Part 3 MD5: c8ca596b39d920e45a9a45fc71611892 ) 5. Deactivate your ANTIVIRUS/UAC program, it can intervene with the installation. As soon as the installation finishes you can activate it again. Have all 3 files together and open part 1 ( = unrar the multi rar archive ). Double click the .exe file. Follow the instructions of the installer. Winrar or Peazip have been confirmed to work. 6. The advanced installation has some options to choose from, namely: There are some optional mods you can activate/deactivate. Lets go through them one by one: 1. X-Division Easy Airgame/X-Division No Airgame There are 3 ways to play the airgame, 1. Manual 2. Autoresolve 3. No Airgame . No Airgame removes the necessity to play the airgame and replaces it with a 1 click solution. With No Airgame you only have to build the latest fighters and bombers and hit autoresolve. If you quickly want to jump into the Ground Combat this is the option of your choice :). Note that this tilts the balance in the favour of the player and is not representativ of the economic balance of the game. Recommended state: ON if you want to skip the airgame. 2. COM - Ambient Sounds/COM - Ambience Forest This mods add ambient sound and add the least amount of instability to the game - it still makes the game more unstable. Recommended State: OFF if you dont want to risk a higher instability for beautiful sounds. XCE 0.34.3 should fix the instability. 3. COM - [V1.08] Jsleezy's Real Fighter Portrait Pack Adds alternative soldier faces to the game. Deactivate Khall´s more Portraits if you are using this to avoid art inconsistencies Recommended State: OFF if you dont want to play with more realistic faces. XCE 0.34.3 should fix the instability. Checklist in case you want to change something later on: You only have X-Division Workshop Support if you subscribed and installed it from the steam workshop The modloader needs to be EXACTLY in the priority order the installer sets it. The modloader needs exactly this active mods. The mods you can still change after the installation are No Airgame, Khalls and Jeezlies different portraits ( only one active at a time ), both Ambient sound mods ( either active for ambient sounds or deactivated for more stability ) and the No Click sound ( removes mouse click ). You shouldn`t play X-Division with any other mods than stated. Only cosmetic mods are allowed and only if you know exactly what you are doing. Keep in mind every savegame is unique to its mods its saved with. 7. Apply the latest available patch - 3.1 Latest Patch section ^^. Every patch contains all prior changes as well. 8.

Welcome onboard, Commander ! 3.2 Troubleshooting This mod is %98 stable. If you got any weird problems like aliens without guns, strange visual errors, game crashes, they should be about wrong install or mod loader issues. Be sure that you got X:CE, X-Division and X-Division Patch is installed and then come to our topic with your save game and we will help you. Sincerely yours, Drages I think i got a bug, can you help me ? If you want some help, make a bug report or think that something is not the way it is supposed to be, add a full screenshots of your whole modloader and your savegame ( geoscpae only ). I cant get the 3 multirar files to work, any help ? The first step to troubleshoot this on your own is to make sure your files are the correct ones. Generate your md5 sums of all 3 files and compare them to the official ones provided with every download. If they are the same, you got the correct data files. After that its just making sure all 3 files are in the same spot and open the first one with either WinRar or Peazip. Why does the first start take so long to load ? Thats normal. X-Division is quite a big mod so loading all of its ressources takes time. Help ! I cant click on anything in the geoscape ! Hotkey are working though. Make sure that everything is the way it should be and then: Simply start up the game, go straight to new game, start a new game, load your current save, save it, exit and restart the game. This should now be fixed. The top part of this Cruiser does not get transparent. What do i do ? You change your view option by pressing the button right beside your inventory one. Cycle through until you find one that works lets you see inside the UFO. 3.3 Linux Installation Advice We know that linux users love to tinker endlessly in order to get their software working, and we dont want to take that joy (and countless hours ) away from you. But if you are struggling and want to get some advice into the right direction, here it is. You will have to start XCE through a windows compatability layer, WINE or Proton for instance The installer might not work for you, because it expects Windows variables you dont have. The assets.7z contains all the X-Division data you need, and you can copy and overwrite your vanilla assets folder with it. You will need to manually rearrange the mod loading order. Section 3.1 should have some pictures how that should look like. Find the linux equivalent of %APPDATA%/Goldhawk Interactive/Xenonauts/internal/scripts and delete the scripts folder once after step 3.5. You propably know better what i am talking about than i do, because i dont keep track of 10 different distros and how they handle stuff. People have reported that that should lead to a working version, mostly depending on how well the windows compatability layer handles the sys calls. You can now celebrate that you have a working game on linux :). 4. Known Bugs ( at least until the next patch ) Units can spawn outside map tiles in base attacks - If that happens make sure you did in that mission what you wanted to do, then save and exit. Start the game with the Xenonauts_gc_editor.exe in mods/xce/... and load up your save. Press "V" to kill every non xenonaut unit. Save and exit and continue to play like normal. 5. Some things before you start 6. Credits A big thank you from the team for being such an awesome community. You made it possibly that we are able to release the final version of X-Division now. I especially want to thank the team who made it possible and accompanied X-Division through its various stages of development. @Solver Who is totally not a member of the X-Divison development team. I want to thank you for giving the much needed code support and all the new and fantastic features X-Division players are capable of experiencing now. Without him the growing of the game would have already stopped when custom Terror UFOs wouldnt obey the Terror Site Intervall. He made it possible that passionate modders can do what they do best, while silently removing obstacles from the back. In honour of your service i grant you the title of "External X-Division Teammember" @drages The main developer and creator of X-Division. Without him all of this Insanity would have never started. He had the vision, made the plan and strifed to fullfill it throughout many years. It is only because of him that we can finish this game today. Thank you for giving me this opportunity. @DrakuOne of the oldest members of X-Division. He did most of the grunt and testing work during the most active development cycles. Aint no Palace without somebody to actually do the work. @sfarrelly The string guy. He wrote most of the research preview entries. If you know what you are going to research than it is totally because of him. @Phoenix1x+52For doing the total insane hercules task of playing through the game from A to Z. He tested everything from the working things to the not so working things and recorded everyhing for sake of me examinating every pixel in the recordings. That X-Division is in such a bug-free and balanced state is mainly because of his work epic. He has been supporting X-Division through all its stages ( hm, installer ) and has been a loyal friend to the end. Many Kudos to you. @Maerafor giving moral support and a lot of enthusiams for new maps. @Marandor1 The second tester in command. He tried his hardest to convince me to make the game more fun than me trying to make it challenging. You can judge for yourself if he succeeded. @SvinedrengenFor making some good maps. and ofcourse ... @community for all the advice, suggestions, support and love that you gave for the game. Without you the journey wouldnt have been worthwhile. You created, enriched and made the game into what it is today. Thank you for being there on this journey. I will see you in the game . Thank you for everybody who i didnt mention but was still part of this journey. A big thanks to @Chris for making Xenonauts. Enjoy ! The next three posts were the continuation of the OP, please take a moment to glance over it.

  2. X - Division All for One V0.99.10 for 1.5+ and 0.34.1 XCE Hi People who likes Xenonauts, played any X-Division Mod and new starters! After one year, finally we managed to finish X-Division 0.99. Finish would be a wrong term here to be honest. It's just at playable state with %90 of the content we want to be in. So you will see many bug fixes, balancing patches and new content/alternate gaming DLC's!... X-Division 0.99 is HUGE.. yeah huge, maybe more then enough. It's nearly remake of the whole game with 10x more content. We worked on every code available for editing/modding. We used every thing possible to give you different/enchanted experience. I say "we" now because the mod resurrected by "Charon". I want to thank him specially here. And "Draku" who never post any comment here, was with me for any kind of crazy bug fixing/testing. Without him, this mod will be a bug feast :). These 2 great people make this mod continue. As a 2D/3D art editor, i could find to work on all the images i want when the coding was at safe hands. This mod got an endless coding. Countless aliens, weapons, armors, vehicles, planes, UFOs, researches, manufactures, items and more done for this mod. As i lead the mod as idea and plan, i made ground combat calculations, all visual materials creating and editing, AI modding and main logic at mod progress. Charon created research, manufacture and xpedia lines, his own totally different air game and full control of file structures of the mod which is a huge work for a mod with that size. His ideas and point of view to things in game, enchanted the mod and saved it at many points. Draku worked like a digital bug fixer, really even the game coders itself probably would not able to see bugs better then him. I still think he is an AI living in this forum :). He is still decoding the mod. X-Division 0.99 is totally different then 0.98. Even there is only maybe less then 0.01 version difference, because it's my style of naming. X-Division 1.0 won't be different but will have much more content, balance and bug free. As our modding team got control over every bit of mod coding of this game, we don't fear any bug, so even now there nearly non-game breaking bug only some visuals and some little typo problems. For that reason we can fix anything about the mod. Our first concern is balance. Charon is a hardcore player which likes it hard and i am a bit sadist and on side of enemy. So as the player you are against us. Our mission is to give you an invasion, a real one, an aggressive one. But we don't want it unplayable, so we need a balanced game at least normal difficult. This mods main point is to make everything useful against aliens. You can't miss any aspect of the game. You can't play it without vehicles, because you don't like them for example. There is tons of things for you to use and every thing is a counter for a different situation. Aliens got everything and they will use anything against you. AI... this game got maybe one of the best AI coding i saw at my entire life. The AI coding is very hard and needs hours of testing and understanding. I don't remember how many hours i looked for that file. We became friends even. Then he talked to me. The vanilla AI even the famous XNT mod AI was so tactical which aliens act like yourself. This AI made the aliens very self defending if you ask me. They wanted to live and for this reason they mostly run from you when you attack them full squad. This was maybe logical for a real living thing but not at a game. I gave them much more killing will. Now they will charge you, hear you, get together and ambush you. New melee creatures will rush you and the ranged ones will get positions when you try to survive at melee range. Some special rank enemies will take time to ambush you when you were fighting with the ones which in front of you. The enemy tanks and drones will give make you feel like you are a little infantry. Your vehicles will be your shield as much as they survive. As short, at a mission, you won't be the one who comes to hunt the aliens down. You will be the one who hunted. NEVER rush.. never.. You need to have right weapon. This is the key for this mod. Aliens got very different resistances and weakness. If you try to use ballistic against a hard skinned creature, you won't able to kill it even your entire squad nuke it. At that point, a little energy rifle or a rocket launcher can save the day. Air game is another story. X-Division's standard air game style is not here yet. Because i could not find a time for it, Charon created the air game with his own style with my visual support. It's crazy. It uses totally different tactics. Totally different weapons at our side and UFO's. Rather then just going and kill at one run, now you need to organize your air wings for difficult and bigger targets. Sometimes you need to attack and run, sometimes you need to sacrifice your wings. It's ultra fun if you like a hardcore air game but if you don't like this games air part, we got easy autosolve airgame mod for you. I am working on a 0.98 style air game too. So you will have many choices. Mechs.. you got mechs, aliens got mechs.. mechs are cool.. no need more info here Ufo's.. Battlecruisers, armored scouts, special shuttles with unique crew, special terror ships, battlecarriers with drones, dreadnoughts and motherships with their own art!... They got an armada out there. You will have nearly every UFO at every phase of the game with the crew of that timeline. X-Division got 39 UFO's with their own missions, stats, colors and crews. The most variety you can ever see in this game. One thousand "1000" researches and manufactures as much as this. This is probably a record not only for mods, for gaming history. Choice wisely which to research, what you need as first. Get a weapon from ballistic, energy and explosive/incinerate damage types as soon as possible, then you can update whatever you want. Go to missions with every damage types because you can never know which enemies you will fight. Even you know the crew of ufo, they will have a mix of aliens with different resistances. If you go only ballistic, there will be some aliens at least with heavy kinetic resistances. Xenopedia, named as X-Pedia with this mod, got nearly 1000 entry with unique pictures for everything even for default items and researches. But we need writers guys so badly.. please join our team for description, X-Pedia and story writing. Visuals, my specialty.. I created numberless new projectiles, explosions, weapons, units, enemies... everything. You will have different color and shaped projectiles for weapons and different colored explosives and gasses. As a 3D animator, i created mechs and vehicles. The game now got more then 100 sound effects too. Draku checked and still checking every weapon as visual and sound effect. We got totally new UI for every scene you visit too. UI credits goes to Draku again. If a red short caesan alien sounds like an alien and throw you cannons, uhm my bad :)... Terror and Base assault mission will be done by alien terror ships which probably you won't shot down. This missions will have special alien commandos. The vanilla game could not give you enough tension for those missions.. Now you got it. Fear it.. Don't forget that, first 2-3 month, until corvettes are your tutorial time. You need to get the game aspects and main weapon updates. After first phase, the game will hit you hard. The invasion will start after that moment. Please don't compare this mod with first missions. This is the only big mod who got serious mid and late game progress. All other mods out there mostly concentrated for early game, early weapons and early everything.. only some mods got the whole game covered and mostly over one aspect. This mod is the only total conversion mod left at development still and it will continue. Beware of Alien Invasion commander, they don't have jokes anymore..
