Since the release of update 3.20 for X4: Foundations earlier this month, we've been working hard from our respective homes on more improvements and new features to be integrated into the game. We are happy to announce that we are starting the beta phase for the upcoming 3.30 update today.
What's the new crew transfer feature?
The crew transfer system has been completely overhauled
in the 3.30 update to give players a new way to transfer crew between ships
. While X4: Foundations previously required that this be done as an order, with the two ships having to meet first, there are now far fewer restrictions.
The transfer of crew members between two ships is now possible regardless of the location of the ships
, with crew members to be moved now making their way directly to their new ship in transport capsules. You'll find the new user interface for crew transfer as part of the Empire Overview in X4: Foundations.
With the 3.30 update, these new crew transfers can be initiated from anywhere
, whether you want to transfer only single crew members to another ship, or exchange complete crews in one go. You will also find it a lot easier to assign a captain to an unmanned ship, for example.
Public Beta Update 3.30 also includes the following changes, among others:
- Improvements to alerts and notifications
- More information on the Logical Station Overview
- New map filters and key bindings
- Enhancements and fixes to trade behaviour
- Lots of smaller fixes and quality of life improvements
