X - Division

New Dawn
V 1.00.01for0.35.0+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?

2. Questions & Answers



Whats the recommendeddifficulty ?
Read the difficulty descriptions when you start a new game.

Is there a techtree avaiable ?
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:

I want to help, how do i apply ?
Has been closed, as we are in the final stages of development.

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.

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 from the file section( Part 1MD5: d46af869d5435a9c425d51acd1442897, Part 2MD5: c57b4fb563ca419c9e455f0908701fe9,Part 3MD5: c8ca596b39d920e45a9a45fc71611892)

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 been confirmed 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:OFFif 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:OFFif you dont want to play with more realistic faces.XCE 0.34.3 should fix the instability.

Checklistin 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.

8.Installation video by Mulligan/LeEdgyMemeKingif you need more help

3.1Latest Patch


  • X-Divison has gone the step to replace vanilla files. There has been an original file added for every replaced one in case you want to deinstall the mod. In case of doubt make a reinstall of the game or verify game integrity through steam.
  • Before applying patches withdraw all scientists and engineers from their current projects. You can reapply them afterwards.
  • You only need to download and install the latest Patch avaialble, it contains all prior fixes as well.
  • The .00 to .01 patch is savegame compatible
  • As a basic rule, never patch during Ground Combat

1.The Base for this patch has to beversion 1.00.00or higher. This update is not available for versions lower than 1.00.00 .

2.Download theX-Division 1.00.01Update from the file section(MD5: 489d03269506927ae5981dbb0de816be )

3.Deactivate your ANTIVIRUS/UAC program(s), it can intervene with the installation. As soon as the installation finishes you can activate it again.

4.Start the executable provided in the file. Follow the instruction of the installer

5.After you have used the installer there is no need to changeANYTHINGanymore, everything has been taken care of, including scripts, modloader priority, and everything else you may think of. The only time you might want to change something is if you are activating/deactivating NoAirgame or change the soldier models. Enjoy

X-Division 1.00.01 ( 1.00.11c ) (1)


For reference, this is how the modloader can look like after the installation, plus/minus optional mods on/off.

Optionally you can download the unofficial version 1.00.10 instead. The changes are listed in the file or on the main page.

You did it. Welcome onboard, Commander !

X-Division 1.00.01 ( 1.00.11c ) (2)


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 ?
Bugs can only be reported on the forum:https://www.goldhawkinteractive.com/forums/index.php?/topic/13414-165xce-v0350-x-division-100-beta/
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. Theassets.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.
WinRAR Multivolume Archive

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. 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

X-Division 1.00.01 ( 1.00.11c ) (3)


Thank you for everybody who i didnt mention but was still part of this journey.
A big thanks to@Chrisfor making Xenonauts.

Enjoy !

X-Division 1.00.01 ( 1.00.11c ) (2024)
