After launching our Blender Modding Tools
alongside the 6.00 update
and the X4: Kingdom End
expansion back in April 2023, we're excited to bring you another important update to our tools for modding X4: Foundations.
Firstly, we've introduced a one-click conversion tool that easily transforms old mod models into the new format Egosoft uses. If you've been using older community tools, this is a game-changer for you.
For those interested in adding a layer of dynamism, you can now create custom animations. This will allow more interactive and engaging elements within your modded worlds.
We've also simplified some of the more technical aspects of the tools. During model export, the tools will now automatically generate "component" XML files, resulting in a speedier process for asset creation.
Last but not least, we've incorporated a feature that allows the creation of waypoints, specifically for drone routes.
We're in the process of compiling more detailed documentation for all these new capabilities. In the meantime, keep an eye on our Wiki
for updates and documentation links. Though still under construction, it's shaping up to be a valuable resource: X Wiki
