New Dawn

V 1.00.10for0.35.0+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 forthose 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 formerorganisation. Some average guys as wellwho are attracted to the way we dothings ... 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?

Enemies feauture different armor resistances, different strenght points and weaknesses. Every alien race is good and bad in and against something and you better find that out quickly before its too late, commander. Terror and base attack missions will happen frequently and will be of importance all the way to and in the end game.

Captureing aliens is immensly important in this mod as it will open up all the vital and better tech for you. Unique specialists you can only capture at terror sites, crash sites or base attacks. Special UFOs with a special goals whichcarry special units into battle. Special Officier Units for every phase of the game to capture to give you that special research boost you need.

2. Questions & Answers

Whats the recommendeddifficulty ?

Read the difficulty descriptions when you start a new game.

Is there a techtree available ?

Yes there is. Keep in mind though its not official and thuse may contain errors.

Is the airgame necessary ? I kind of am not good at it.

Take a look at this:https://youtu.be/9eF3ssd22qM?t=3m39s
If you still dont want to try it out there is an option available in the installation which lets you play the airgame with minimal efforts. I would encourage you to try using the manual airgame nevertheless.

Is this version balanced ? What should Ilook out for ?

Every manufacture and research as well as every economic gameplay element has been implemented. However the requirement quantity has been set to the lowest level for

  • Grenades, Rockets, Melee Weapons
  • Vehicle Weapons

Things which won´t change are

  • The weapon DSB system
  • The UFO DSB system
  • The xenonaut weapon sell prices ( 1:1 )
  • UFO datacore sell prices

Please report on theseissues and give us feedback on how we can balance them.

Otherwise its pretty balanced.

Help ! I mean HELP ! Any guidance on how i should play this game ?

Here you go:

For people knowing how the game works, feel free to help others or submit things you think are important or a guidance.

I want to help, how do i apply ?

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. Thenmake a fresh install of xenonauts.
X-Division 1.00.00is not compatible with earlier versions.

2.Install the latest XCE version.

  • For windowssteam users right click on Xenonauts in your library > Porperties > Betas > community - Xenonauts: Community Edition branch

  • For GOG/linux steamusers 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.

3.5Start up the game at least once and exit it properly.

4.Download all 3 parts of X-Division 1.00.00:Download( Part 1MD5: d46af869d5435a9c425d51acd1442897, Part 2MD5: c57b4fb563ca419c9e455f0908701fe9,
Part 3MD5: c8ca596b39d920e45a9a45fc71611892)

[1.65/X.CE V0.35.0] X-Division 1.00 Beta (1.00.11c) (38)[1.65/X.CE V0.35.0] X-Division 1.00 Beta (1.00.11c) (39)
[1.65/X.CE V0.35.0] X-Division 1.00 Beta (1.00.11c) (40)

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 beenconfirmed 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: ONif you want to skip the airgame.

2. COM - Ambient Sounds/COM - Ambience Forest

  • This mods addambient sound and addthe 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 forambient sounds or deactivated for more stability ) and the No Click sound( removes mouse click ).
  • You shouldn`tplay 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 -3.1Latest Patchsection ^^. Every patch contains all prior changes as well.

  • reinstated the original timeframes of the Phases from 300/300/300/300 to 300/400/400/300 ATP per Phase respectively
  • revised the AV.PIRANHA and the AV.PARTICLEPIRANHA
  • fixed the burstdelay of the Alien Ballistic Rifle. Thanks to Dr.Ethan for bringing this to my attention.
  • Fixed the Am_BaseAttack file spawning landingships and carriers
  • Replaced all terror units in alien bases with their non-terror counterpart, replaced weapon seargents with pilots and the technician only has a 50% to spawn anymore
  • Drastically increased SmokeChance for alien stun grenades, drastically increased dissipationChance to 90%
  • optimised the research tree for more logical and better progression
  • Flamethrower - 2 range all across the board
  • new mod: X-Divison Shorter Range Shorter Turns: Starting in Phase 3 X-Division gives aliens longer sight ranges. This increases the capabilities of the AI, but also increases the time alien turns take. This mod reverses these changes to the standard sight ranges of 20/22/24/25 in order to decrease the time the player cant actually play the game.

Only TOGGLE this during a Geoscape save.
  • Reinstated terror mission full map reveal after 40 turns
  • a: Decreased Reaper reflexes from 60 - 100 to 0, except for Reaper Bulls and Reaper Rhinos
  • a: Fixed some next Phase alien base attack UFOs to spawn too early
  • a: Increased Nanotech Workshop capacity froom 25 to 30
  • a: Fixed the Harridan Terror Soldier carrying a shield, and adding the shield hp to the resilience of the harridan
  • a: Increased alienBaseStartingTickerMultiplier from 0.05 to 0.06
  • a: Fixed Researches.AdvAlienNeutronTechnology requiring Phase 3 tech
  • a: Doubled Roboreaper Alien Alloy gain from DSB
  • a: Removed Robodog ghosts from alien bases
  • a: Reshuffled 5 andron fortress units into proper Phase 4 ones
  • a: Increased archelon acceleration from 100 to 300
  • a: Fixed The Dreadnaught operator missing from Bombing Run Dreadnaughts
  • a: Fixed some XCE shenanigangs which added additional units to alienbase.large.sebillian.xml
  • a: refunned flashbang grenades
  • a: Reworked cost of grenades, rockets and explosives
  • a: Removed damage and suppression from smoke grenades
  • a: Removed impact damage and overdamage from chemical grenades
  • a: Removed overdamage from chemical rockets
  • a: Removed impact damage of stun grenades
  • a: Fixed Division weapons MK2 having a 33% chance to be stuck behind an andron encounter
  • a: Fixed a completey broken X-Division implementation of Geographic revision 1.1 by @Axiomatic. Tropical and Swamp tilesets should now be able to spawn, and more variety in tilesets should be seen. Unfortunately, without overwriting vanilla content, the game cant deactivate the base tileset masks, and thuse base game tileset masks always have a chance to get picked.
  • b: new manufacture: Alien Alloy 1 : 50k appended to Alien Alloy Fabrication and Hardening ( Phase 2 )
  • b: new manufacture: Alenium 1 : 150k appended to Alien Fusion Reactor ( Phase 3 )
  • b: Replaced some light system DSBs for smaller UFOs with heavy systems starting in Phase 3
  • b: Redesigned human antimatter weapons, but overall its a big nerf
  • b: shortened the final mission
  • b: new mod: X-Division Better Autoresolve: (Former No Airgame) There are 4 ways to play the airgame, 1. Manual 2. Autoresolve 3. Better Autoresolve 4. No Airgame . Better Autoresolve halves UFO autoresolve values and decreases the threshold where winning squadrons take damage.

Note that this tilts the balance in the favour of the player and is not representativ of the economic balance of the game.

Only TOGGLE this during a Geoscape save when no UFOs are present.
  • b: revised mod: X-Division No Airgame: There are 4 ways to play the airgame, 1. Manual 2. Autoresolve 3. Better Autoresolve 4. No Airgame . No Airgame sets the autoresolve values of UFOs to zero.

Note that this tilts the balance in the favour of the player and is not representativ of the economic balance of the game.

Only TOGGLE this during a Geoscape save when no UFOs are present.
  • b: Melee weapons should now be bug free. They dont dublicate anymore, and they get properly recognised at the end of the mission, just like any other weapon. Axes are being able to be carried by predator armour, like originally intended. The drawback is that they had to be moved to the MAG category. Fingers crossed that this coding doesnt introduce a differnt kind of jankiness.
  • b: The number of uses for melee weapons is now finite
  • c: Swapped out a major visual bug with a minor visual bug. Cruiser command rooms should now be fully visible with the second roof option. The downside is that the cruiser top highlights green instead of red when manually targeted.
  • c: Fixed the Division weapons Mk2 fix introduced in 1.00.11a. There was a 33% chance the research was locked. Thanks to @Alphaswolffor finding the bug.

  • new mod:X-Divison Slower Invasion:The Invasion escalates 25% slower
  • new mod: Empower Facehuggers:This will improve the AI of facehuggers, but as a side effect they will also be able to attack vehicles.

[you can no longer close the valkyrie fortress, so choose your exit wisely]
[Pheonix pointed out that the heavy attribute of weapons were not working as intended. I took a look at it and saw that a line of code was actually taking the inverse of what it should. Where i intended a 90% penalty the game took 10%. Ofcourse this should not be the case and invalidates any and all experience we have build up through the last year. Nevertheless it is the intended mechanic for heavy weapons to be heavily penaltised after moving. I corrected things and heavy weapons now get a 65% aim penatly after moving ( turning doesnt count ). This ofcourse excludes Exoskelett armour which can fire a heavy weapon at their leisure without any aim penalty at any time. This is how it should have been done 2 years ago. I apologise for the inconvenience caused and i hope my testers will continue to play the game. - Cheers Charon. This change affects snipers, precision, machineguns, miniguns and cannon weaponry. This affects xenonauts weaponry as much as it doesalien ones.]
[Additionally i reworked the Recoil values. I increased the Recoil for machineguns to 70, for cannons to 80 and for miniguns to 90. Energy Weapons have a special treat and dont get any recoil except for miniguns if present. This makes them great rookie weapons and should make them more attractive under certain circ*mstances. The Rest of the changes make the Recoil system more meaningful because most requirements were too low to even matter under any circ*mstances.]
[Quickthtrow grenade slot cost decreased by -4 TU]
[aim penalty for heavy weapons after moving increased from 60% to 70%]
[aim penalty for heavy weapons after moving decreased from 70% to 65%]
[Decreased some TU bonus points for the scout class]
[Fixed max stats gain to the intended round values]
[A lot of content cleaned up]
[Infiltrator weapon loadout refined]
[Reapers got their reflexes back, while i also fixed the melee reaction fire freezing after a GC load by disabled reaction fire for them. Reaction fire has been disabled for Xenomorphs as well, which should remove the melee freezing bug from the game]
[Fixed the crashed heavy shuttle hull being invisible]
[quenched infinite strings errors]
[Fixed the lightshuttle having a 33% chance to not drop the datacore]

New XCE code used in X-Division:

  • Moddable transfer time - transfer time of items and soldiers has been reduced from 24 to 3 hours
  • 13 new radar ranges - for now 10 new radar ranges have been enabled. This will likely get a more indepth revision later on
  • LockManufacture fixed - One Time Updates manufactures should now disappear after their corresponding research has been done
  • Zombify - Zombify now only zombifies if the damage kills the units, otherwise its damage only
  • Renaming bases - A highly requested feature for XCE and X-Division
  • Moral Cap moddable - The moral cap in X-Division has been removed, finally making you hard earned bravery something worth
  • Escort code fix - Construction missions are now able to spawn alternative escorts
  • Sightrange modifiable per rank - main races get +5 on sightrange in Phase 3 and +10 in Phase 4
  • Base Evacuation - Should a base get captured by aliens, personel and aircraft will transfer to other bases if available space is free ( this is for X1 and XCE too )
  • Dialoges - Improved dialoge redirections
  • Infiltrator and Ghost ability - The Infiltrator ability will mark units as friendlies on the map, indistinguishable from other friendly units and wont trigger reaction fire - civilian hosts for now. The Ghost ability marks units as props on the map, indistinguishable from other props, but they trigger reaction fire upon moving ( "Sir, i saw that box moving, so i shot" ) - facehuggers, robodog and reaperboxes for now
  • Aircombat - The hotkeys used for geoscape zoom can now be used for aircombat as well. There is a hotkey for afterburner now, "A" as default
  • Aircombat speed - The aircombat speed levels received two revised speed buttons: x0.5 and x0.75 for slower aircombat gameplay.
  • Bugs - The incendiary bonus damage on burst shoots against props and soldiers under certain circ*mstances got fixed. Now its only against props.

You did it. Welcome onboard, Commander ! [1.65/X.CE V0.35.0] X-Division 1.00 Beta (1.00.11c) (46)


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 WinRaror 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 :).

3.4 Explanation for the installation technology used

The 3 rar parts of the installation are called a Multivolume RAR Archive. We shall further refer to this as MRAR archive, or simply MRAR.


Each MRAR archive is sensitive, or can be sensitive, to the process it got created from. While the endproduct should be the same we found that unpacking the MRAR with the same tool it got created from yields the best result. In this case the tool used to create it was peazip. Therefore in case of doubt, use peazip. WinRAR has been confirmed to work as well.

Each part of an MRAR contains an "archive is finished" or "archive is not finished" flag at the end of its volume. If an unpacking tool finds such flag, it looks for the next part. The information of where the next part is, is not saved inside the current volume, because the next part could literally be on another pc, in another country, on a different continent. The unpacking tool searches its paths for the same named entity with ".partX" before the .rar specifier, where X is the current part + 1. Shall it find such entity it will repeat the same process until it finds an archive with the "archive is finished" flag. If it doesnt find the next volume it will throw an error, or worse, throw no error and assume its a standalone rar while opening a half backed archive. You start the whole process from the first archive, that is .part1.rar, and the unpacking tool will find the rest, if it can.

At the time of writing this (2.6.24) the first part has a size of 2,5gb. If you want to check whether or not your unpacking tool openend the archive correctly you can look at the total size of the archive, which should be displayed somewhere in the GUI of your tool. The total size of the archive is ~7gb. If it says so, it found all volumes of its MRAR.

All patches are distributed as standalone RARs.

All data pertaining X-Division is contained in assets.7z. It is therefore entirely possible to install X-Division without the use of the installer, as well as rehosting X-Division without including the installer. The installer only automates steps the user could take themself.

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

I just produced Alien Flamer Rifle 4:1B but the weapon doesnt show up.

Thats not a production but a dissasemble. You disassemble X alien weapons for X ballistic/energy/antimatter/chemical cores. You need the coreslater for better weapon production. This is the disassemble system. You can sell the weapons either for good money or produce cores for better weapon production. Your choice :).

I just produced an Alien Scout DSB but i cant find it ?

DSB means disassemble. You are disassembling the UFO and get its part. The Xpedia has detailed information what parts it EXACTLY produces so check that out. Those are needed for aircrafts and aircraft weapons. Most aircraft need the engine, the controlsystem and alien computers. The weapon systems are mostly for aircraft weapons. This is the UFO disassemble and aircraft production system.

What does your "fixed" mean ?

The problem you are stating has 1. been noted 2. completely been fixed. Thismeans you will get the fix with the next patch. In urgent situations ill put up a direct link where you will be able to download the patch for exactly the stated problem but usually you will get all fixes with the next patch available. You can check theKnown Bugspart in the OP before you report one to check if it doesnt already has been noticed. This is also where we put emergency links directly beside the stated bug.

Next questions


On 12.8.2016 at 9:40 PM,TideofKhatangasaid:

From the few bits I've seen, the air game is incredibly punishing. The two starting condors can barely keep their sh*t together against a Light Scout. For the rest, well, I've lost four condors in two weeks. One pair against a Fighter (I should have won but I massively screwed up the manual engagement), and one pair against a Scout (no error here, they stood no chance from the very start). This isn't a problem because the Scouts seem to love landing (keeping my cash flowing) but the Foxtrot can't come soon enough. Corvettes are going to be major FUN at this rate.



Yes, the Airgame is painted in my needs. Gone are the times where you said "The first UFO, ah, one condor should be able to take care of that". Condors are BAD, very BAD. You are practically fighting with sticks and stones right now. My advice: get as many condors as you can get. My first base has 9 hangars, my second base has 8, and my third base has 10 hangars. Build them all on your first day. ... the bases i mean.

With some more experience you will be able to handle the airfights pretty easily. I mean, they are scouts and lightscouts after all ... . But you can only makeexperience if you have enough condors. Soon you will know EXACTLY what to do and how to behave in the airfight. At this point corvettes will crush your dreams. Just ... at ... the ... right ... time. When you thought you started to be able to handle the fight for air supremecy. What will follow area lot of smokeing airplanes and your need to think a way out of this mess.

Heres how youL2P:

  • Knowledge:

This is the first step. Collect information. The most important information is the HP. You will only get this information AFTER you brought that specific UFO down and SUCCESSFULLY raided it.

The next step is to count your total dmg. Do i have enough dmg to bring this UFO down ? Other questions are:
How fast is this UFO ?
Can i outturn it ? Can it outturn me ?
What weapons does it use ?
After some time you will get a handle on the information and put it together what this UFO is so special about. Let me stress this again: You can only learn through EXPERIENCE. Nobody has yet learned how to handle a situation without havinga minimum of experience. This means destroyed aircraft.

Learn to handle that you are up against the unknown.

  • Get the right aircraft/weapon lodout:

This means that you learn what weapon is good in what situation and equipt it on the appropriate aircraft. An example is the fighter UFO in the first Phase. Get Asierus and 2 short range mauser cannons and you will destroy a fighter 1 on 1 with only sustaining 15 % dmg. Learn what aircraft is good against what UFO. Learn how a weapon behaves.

  • ADAPT your aircraft/weapon lodout toYOUR PLAYSTYLE.

DECISIONS:This is the utmost perfection of the airgame. After you learned how your enemy behaves and learned to deploy simple and advanced tactics like baiting, holding down, piercing, rolling into the enemy, choseing the right angle, fishing, throttleing and learned how to have theappropriate aircraft and weapon lodout, tailored to YOUR playstyle you will know what is possible. Than you will have different options in your headto choose from. Do i make it simply but lose one foxtrot ? Do i have enough fuel to bait it out ? Do i do 50% dmg and draw back and reengage again ? Is it worth it to sustain 40% dmg on this aircraft. These are ALL your options.
Choseing from ALL of this options is a GEOSCAPE decision which will determine your future options and possbilities, thus setting your path to victory or defeat.

Why is it so hard ?

Its not, it hasspecific goals:

1.Throw you into a situation where you are CLEARLY inferior. Activate your brain and think your way out of it. Its just an AI after all, not a human.
2.The gradual mastering of the situation is an immense factor of satisfaction, provided you can do it. Try again or start on lower difficulties.
3.Baffling you RIGHT at the time you think you are starting to get a grip on it, throwing you in another crisis. Saying "Start to learn to fight your way out of disadvantageous positions."

  • This is the most important point:Decisions.Even if amoderate skilled person with the right aircraft/weapon lodout cannot switch on the autowin button, but has to make a decision on how he wants to play his cards/aircrafts. If he screws up he screws up. If he hesitates in the wrong moment, he may pay the price for it. Theres no clear right or wrong. Its anindividual experience which shows you and your way with dealing withchallenging uncertainties, most importantly it shows YOUR way. There will never be a "OMG, its that UFO again. This is so boring"

or you activate Easy Airgame and autoresolve

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 itpossible and accompanied X-Division through its various stages of development.

@SolverWho 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 theydo best, while silently removing obstacles from the back. In honour of your service i grant you the title of "External X-Division Teammember"

@dragesThe 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.

@sfarrellyThe string guy. He wrotemost 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.

@Marandor1The second tester in command. He tried his hardest to convince me to make the game more fun than me tryingto 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 whatit is today. Thank you for being there on this journey. I will see you in the game [1.65/X.CE V0.35.0] X-Division 1.00 Beta (1.00.11c) (48).

Thank you for everybody who i didnt mention but was still part of this journey.

A big thanks to @Chrisfor making Xenonauts.

Enjoy !

The next threeposts werethe continuation of the OP, please take a moment to glance over it.
