Yes folks, you heard right! An all-in-one XWAU installer! Darksaber has been working tirelessly behind the scenes and put out a great installer for all crafts that have been completed up until today. I think a round of applause is in order Thanks also to all the others who have made it possible for us to come this far. The pack includes over 100 crafts all of which have been painstakingly recreated to provide the best possible look in X-Wing Alliance.
Please be aware that the XWAUCP will NOT install over the DSCUP! (Since that one includes all XWAU opts anyway) So you only need the pack if you wish to not add any non XWAU crafts. The pack will not be updated with each craft, but I am certain DS will add opts to it from time to time. All crafts that are being released in the meantime will be marked in the download page.
Some more information about the XWAUCP:
It's your Bare Bones Craft installer!
No XWA CD's required No Shortcuts No fancy wave files No Pilot files No No-CD Patch No New Video's No Mpeg Codec Files
Nothing just OPT's, OPT's, OPT's
It includes All the XWAU Craft updated until the 3rd of August 2012 so far. Apart from the Modified Strike Cruiser (that wasn't included to XWA that was converted from XvT) no other Custom Opt has been added
There are only the versions of the ISD's with the destroyable guns in the pack.
It includes the DDRaw.dll for ATI video cards (ONLY) and the Font fix for Nvidia Cards, plus the new Planets.dat by DTM, which are all optional
Also all mission fixes are included, so are the different configurations of Missiles, Lasers and Ions
There is a choice of Astromech Droid as in the Droid installer R2-D2, R2-Q5 (Black) or the R5-D4 Correlian Gunship with or without Fringe Dreadnaught Darksaber's or Jm's Freighter Type K with or without containers Millennium Falcon Han or Lando versions Luxury Yacht or the Lady Luck version with guns Slave One default green lasers, a red laser version and a yellow laser version (but has no laser sounds) Pursuer Enforement Ship or Boba Fetts Slave Two SSD 17.5km or 19KM versions Tie Bomber X2 Missiles or X4 missiles Tie Defender or Tie Defender MK2 (with the missile launcher on the side of the cockpit) Tie Fighter standard or ANH versions Tie Warheads standard or a version with lasers as in the Tie Int Ywing Yellow or Red FG
All craft slots have been enabled if a user wishes to add their own choice of custom crafts.

This kicks incomprehensible amounts of ass. Today is my birthday and I just saw this. I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR A PACK LIKE THIS FOR YEARS AND I AM SO EXCITED THAT IT IS FINALLY HERE!! A few questions:
1. Does it work with the Xwing total conversion and Tie Fighter total conversion? Also where were those again and are there guides for installation? 2. I would like to replace the "medium" calamari cruise in the main campaign with the Home One class cruiser so it is closer to the movies. Is there an easy way to do this? I think I could use the XWA tool but am not sure.
Thanks for all of your hard work. Can I donate?
Also, my former forum name was bismack1 but I forgot the password and the email account it is linked to is not defunct.
The PES cockpit is bugged in the pack gauges missing and sidescreen are purples instead of "transparent"(can be resolved by reinstalling the craft itself)
R-41 Starchaser launch warheads from its cockpit installing the craft itself did not resolve the problem, but in MXVTED, the two warhead hardpoints were sets at none, switching it to torpedo, as it is supposed to be, worked)
TIE Defender :
Wrong firing pairing in dual mode for the lasers, it's suppose to be paired in "X" like the X-Wing (top right laser with bottom left, bottom right with top left). (fixed by editing the opt hardpoints in MXVTED)
Wrong firing order in dual mode for the lasers, it's supposed to be the top ones together first then the bottom ones next (fixed by editing the opt hardpoints in MXVTED)
