This software is no longer actively developed and was superseded by X3 Editor 2.

X3 Editor (X3E) is program for editing various files used by the game X3 Reunion and X3 Terran Conflict. It can edit most of T files, universe maps and text resource files.


X3 Editor vs. X3 Editor TC

  • X3 Editor can work with X3 Reunion. The latest version is 0.0.15.
  • X3 Editor TC can work with X3 Terran Conflict. The latest version is 0.0.24.


History of X3 Editor is pretty simple: it is derived from X2 Editor - similar program designed for X2 - The Threat.

They share the same design and their functionality is almost the same, however X3 Editor is more advanced in several ways.

Terran Conflict

X3 Editor was modified to work with Terran Conflict files to ease the developing of TC. It will not load the older files used in Reunion.

X3 Editor and Windows Vista

X3 Editor runs under Windows Vista without any known problems, the only exception being the Galaxy Editor.

Under Vista, opening any map in GE results in error message "Failed to initialize DirectDraw". The workaround is to open Settings and in the Graphics tab uncheck the Use Direct Draw option.
