The X Plugin Manager is a program thats used to install plugins into the X-Universe games, mainly designed for X3, included Reunion, Terran Conflict, Albion Prelude and Farnham’s Legacy. It allows installing of any plugins that are distributed in SPK, Script Package, files, and XSP, X Ship Packages, files. It can also install mods packaged as zip files.
The Plugin Manager is an intelligent installer, that has many advantages over other install methods, and can be used to install Scripts and Mods, as well as new ships into the Game. The program was originally designed to make it easier to install scripts, but has since become much more.
The Plugin Manager also has various features that allow scripts to do more than they can using other install methods, the main one being Custom Wares, so scripts can add and customize new wares into the game, which was previously not possible, and had to rely on using the existing wares in the game.
