The team continues to work diligently on the next big update for X4: Foundations
. Today we have released the fifth version of the 4.10 Beta
. This is a special update because Beta 5 contains the new Custom Game Start
feature for the first time.
The full list of changes in 4.10 Beta 5 is available in our forum
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.
The 4.10 Beta 5 allows you to try out this new feature for the first time. We hope you enjoy it and we are looking forward to your feedback!
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
