Diverse Game Starts - LU Edition
For LU v.1.5.1
Latest Update: 2015-06-03
These packages add additional gamestarts to Litcube's Universe. My initial goal was to restore some of the diversity of the original game starts provided in the X3 Vanilla game, but as I fleshed out this package, I began to revamp the starts with some new language and starting conditions. Let me know if you have any ideas for alternate starts that you would like to see included.
One of the principles underlying these game starts is to restore some of the diversity in race relations for the Player. Some starts are mild and sandbox-oriented. Others...will present unique challenges to those who dare to tread those paths. Sometimes you will discover you have fewer friends than you expected.
Copy the contents of the zip package into the X3 game root, where the X3_AP.exe is located. Start a new game and scroll down below the LUV game starts to see your new options.
Argon Apprentice (M5)
Day in, day out, you labor for any corporation that will hire you. You dream of exploring the universe and making your fortune among the stars. Do you have what it takes?
Argon Lieutenant (M3)
Years in the Argon Peacekeeping Force have gained you the respect of your peers and superiors. Lately, however, you have been feeling restless and unchallenged. It is time to embark on new adventures.

And new in v.3, we now have Pirate and Yaki options:
