UT2003 :: Actor >> Pawn >> UnrealPawn >> xPawn (Package: XGame)

This is the actual pawn class used in UT2003 and UT2004. The "x" does not stand for anything, just indicates this is Digital Extreme's implementation, rather than from Epic's basic engine classes.

Defx: Whats the difference between Pawn and xPawn?

Nick89: XPawn is the final refined class designed specifically for UT200x. XPawn handles damage, shields and properly interacts with everything in the game.

OlympusMons: Doesnt the "x" signify that a class is linked into the caching system through xUtil Well thats kinda the impression I got, at first I thought it was digital extremes but it seems the classes that were marked with an "x" for Unreal Championship Im guessing were done so because of the upl files and probably extended later on with the ucl and CacheManager, which covers mutators and some other stuff. Maybe they were talking about the xBox because this is probably when all the SpeciesType started, maybe Im wrong.

Wormbo: The X in many class and package names only stands for "extended" and points out a severe lack of ideas for names.

OlympusMons: Yeah I guess your right, just looking through the code and there is a fair few classes that dont relate to the xUtil that carry the prefix "x" like xWeaponBase, xEmitter and xWeaponAttachment. I do know the Classes are designated with a lowcase "x" and the Packages and uppercase "X". They do share something in common with xPawn though, theres only acouple Ive found that seem to be completely unrealted which are xWeatherEffect and xMaterialController.Theres a few more I dont really think this is worth discussing further as it seems the statement on top of this page is right.

Pendragon: It says at the top of the page,
