Over time since initial release, many users have worked hard to improve the game experience or Rebirth through feature addition and/or fixes. This page tries to keep a record of player work that either overtly or coincidentally became incorporated into X Rebirth over time.

Thinking back over almost 2 years means this list won't be exhaustive but it can be easily updated. The list is chronological by patch from Egosoft that addressed the theme.


Please note that the following mods/extensions are generally not recommended since they are mostly redundant for the reason they are listed. Hyperlinks are basically added to serve as monuments (smile)
