X3TC bonus pack on linux
Does anyone know if I can get the bonus pack in a form other than a .exe file, so that I can use it on Linux?

It is a set of mods released by Egosoft to improve some parts of the game. you can find more info and the Windows version here: http://www.egosoft.com/download/x3tc/bonus_en.php

Bonus pack are mods from community, Egosoft checks them if they do not take of balance the economy, then they approve them. For Linux there is probably not enough people who can install them all, and play the game long enough so all bugs can be found. The person who is porting to Linux is responsible for porting to Mac too.. so that's what he is doing now.. I think it's Priority issue.. porting games to Mac is more important than catching bugs in bonus pack for Linux..

You can install the Bonus Pack manually, just follow these steps:

1. If you have Ubuntu 12.04 or earlier, you need to add a PPA:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:arx/release
sudo apt-get update
2. Install innoextract:
sudo apt-get install innoextract
3. Extract the .exe file:
innoextract x3tc_bonus_package_4.1.01.exe
4. Copy the files in app/scripts/ and app/t/ to the coresponding directories in ~/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/X3 Terran Conflict/. One File should be overwritten in the process. That's OK.

Have fun!

I just used wine "wine x3tc_bonus_package_4.1.01.exe" in the directory I downloaded it to. I then also located the SteamApps\common\X3 Terran Conflict\ directory and installed it there.
