13.Sep.21 New features and tons of enhancements - 4.10 update for X4: Foundations now available  (8 Comments)
Since the release of X4: Cradle of Humanity and the extensive 4.00 update for X4: Foundations, we've been hard at work on the next big steps for our game. Today, we are pleased to announce that the 4.10 update is now available to download.


The full list of changes in 4.10 is available in our forum.

The new 4.10 update for X4: Foundations has become more extensive than originally planned and has, therefore, taken a bit more time. However, we are convinced that the extra effort was worth it and that you will like the numerous enhancements. In the 4.10 update we have, for example, improved the existing game feature of Terraforming and, in response to feedback on the 4.00 update, we have fixed various issues in connection with mining, trade and station management, among other things. We have also made improvements to the asset management of our graphics engine, resulting in better use of graphics memory. You will notice some changes when building stations, especially in terms of usability (more on this in Inside Egosoft Podcast Episode 4).

Custom Game Start
The new Custom Game Start feature allows players of X4: Foundations to customise certain starting conditions in the game, within limits that are set in order to maintain game balance. It is possible, for example, to influence factors such as available starting capital, sectors already explored, and relationships with other factions. Episode 2 of the Inside Egosoft Podcast includes more details about the Custom Game Start feature.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts on the 4.10 update. We hope that you enjoy exploring the new possibilities and especially, of course, trying out the Custom Game Start feature. Rediscovering X4: Foundations with a change in starting conditions is definitely something you should experience.

Thank you for your continued support, and stay safe in space!

02.Sep.21 X3: Farnham's Legacy Donation Pack - Review  (3 Comments)
As previously announced, we have now finished selling the X3: Farnham's Legacy Donation Pack. The donation pack gave you the opportunity to express your gratitude to our team of highly motivated community members, who spent the last five years or so working on X3: Farnham's Legacy. The game was released in May 2021, and we have received lots of great feedback from you - thank you for that!

Just to give you an idea of what you have achieved with the donation pack, we can tell you that we've rounded up the total donation sum to 5,000 euros for Médecins sans frontières / Doctors Without Borders. We've also decided to donate an additional 5,000 euros, not taken from the donation pack, to "Aachen hilft", which is a regional campaign to help those affected by the recent flood disaster here in Germany. We thank you for your support, and we are pleased that we were able to pass on a nice sum of money to some good causes.

X3: Farnham's Legacy itself will, of course, remain available, both in its original Windows version and also now as a native Linux version. We are happy to see every download, and hope you have a lot of fun during your time in the extended X3 universe, whether you are new to the series or a veteran X gamer!

The full list of changes in 4.10 Beta 6 is available in our forum.

Multiverse Team Seasons postponed
We would also like to inform you of a change of plan regarding the release of the new "Multiverse Team Seasons" game mode. We need a little more time to make Multiverse Team Seasons into the captivating new feature we originally envisioned it to be. In order not to delay the release of the 4.10 update, including the new Custom Game Start feature and the extended Station Editor, we have therefore decided to postpone the introduction of the Multiverse Team Seasons feature. This feature will not now be part of the 4.10 update, as previously announced, and will instead be introduced in a later update for X4: Foundations.

If you would like to know more about the Multiverse Team Seasons, we recommend Episode 1 of the Inside Egosoft Podcast, in which Egosoft's founder and Managing Director Bernd Lehahn describes the new feature.

The new Custom Game Start feature allows players of X4: Foundations to customise certain starting conditions in the game, within limits that are set in order to maintain game balance.

You should definitely take a look at the station editor in Beta 5, because there have also been a few changes here that significantly improve the station design process. This topic was also discussed in a recent podcast episode (YouTube version).
