The XWA Upgrade is a massive mod made from fans for fans. We started something like 20 years ago planning to only upgrade the ship models to add some much needed details into them. Over the many years we have discovered many things that we can do to upgrade not only the ship models however but the actual game engine as well. These days there is barely any part of the game untouched. There are higher texture resoutions, more ships with more options to choose from. More flightgroup colors, VR support, fully dynamic and interactive cockpits and so much more.
There is so much we are still learning about the engine and we are trying to push it as far as we can. Sure, we might never be done, we might never get to that last model to be changed, but boy are we having a lot of fun on the way.
We sure hope you will join us on this ride and rediscover this old but sill really great game.

|Comment||I came in touch with Star Wars at about 13 and have been a dedicated fan ever since. Today I work as system admin and webdesigner and try to find time and muse for some OPTing every now and then.
I played X-Wing when it came out in 93, visiting a friend until I got my own computer, with X-Wing Collector's CD being the first game I got for it. Finally came into contact with the X-Wing Community in 2000, when I got my own internet access.
I've been drawing and painting since I was a kid, proceeding into 3D modelling in my late teens and progressing and improving for over a decade. Well ... here I am, writing about my life.
