What is Xadrian?

Xadrian is a factory complex calculator for the games X³: Terran Conflict and X³: Albion Prelude. With this tool you can plan your factory complexes before you build them in-game.

Notable features:

  • Knows all factories and sectors of a regular unmodified X3TC or X3AP game. Also includes the X3TC bonus sector "Harmony Of Perpetuity".
  • Optional automatic base complex calculation.
  • Load, save and print your complexes.
  • Sun power is configurable per complex.
  • Complex can be connected to a sector for automatic sun power configuration and calculation of next ship yards where the factories can be bought.
  • Easy creation of mines. Just add a mine type and then enter as many asteroid yields as you want.
  • Export to plain text and export/import of complex template codes for easy exchange of complex information via email or forum.
  • Cross-platform GUI application. Runs on any platform supporting Java SE 6 or higher.
  • Native look-and-feel on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. Theme is configurable.
  • Open Source (MIT License)
