XPilot is a graphical multi-player maneuvering game with less-exciting graphics, but more speed, tactics, and insults. Some people also use it for UDP network analysis. Over the past eight years of playing and development, tons of features have been added to the game, from basic weapons like shotguns and missiles to more recent ones like phasing devices, invisibility, or hyperjump.
