19.Apr.17 Updates for X Rebirth, X3: Albion Prelude and X3: Terran Conflict  (18 Comments)
It's update day! As many of you will be aware, updates for X Rebirth, X3: Albion Prelude and X3: Terran Conflict have been undergoing testing for some time. We've now reached the point where we believe that these updates are ready for everyone to benefit from them, so without further ado we present:

X Rebirth 4.10

This update brings you a number of improvements that didn't quite make it into 4.00, and a few fixes for things that did. In particular we've improved capital ship movement and general AI flight behaviour in specific situations, and made some UI tweaks including adding ammunition information to the detail menus for ships and stations. As usual, we've also improved performance here and there and squashed some crash bugs. Some of the improvements we've been able to make have come as a side-effect of our efforts on the VR Edition that we're working on, and we're expecting more to come from that in the future. The full changelog is quite extensive, and well worth taking a look through.

X3: Albion Prelude 3.2 and X3: Terran Conflict 3.3

Since their last update, we've taken the opportunity to do a couple of things with these games. Most of these are fixes, and have been applied to both games; those of you with many playing hours will be pleased to note that one of these addresses the performance and memory issues that can occur with certain missions. Modders will find a few small improvements in X3AP, and players who use the Russian and Chinese localisations will hopefully be pleased to see text improvements that had been made in X3AP have now been back-ported to X3TC. Also back-ported to X3TC, though currently only in the Windows version, is the controller support from X3AP.

15.Dec.16 X Rebirth VR Edition, Updates and X4  (401 Comments)
It's again time for us to wish you all a Happy Christmas and all the best for the new year. It is however also the time of the year when we normally start talking about a new game or expansion.

Last year it was Home of Light, and before that it was The Teladi Outpost. Both of these X Rebirth expansions received a lot of positive feedback and helped us to show X Rebirth 4.0 in a much better light.

This year, there are several really exciting new developments that we can share with you:

  • We have Update 4.10 of X Rebirth almost ready, as well as Updates for X3AP and X3TC.

  • There will be a VR game based on X Rebirth: the X Rebirth: VR Edition.

  • X4 is in development!

Read all about these exciting projects in the latest issue of our X Universe News and share your thoughts on our forum!
