Information on this page is not relevant until online features are re-enabled. Information on planned features is available here

Egosoft Community Account

To use any of the games online features, like the bonus paintmod that any customer gets for free for just registering their game and the Venture Feature released as beta in v1.50, you need to set up an account on for the online community (same as your forum account!).

How To Register

  • Start the game
  • Open the Online Features menu:

Once you are logged in and registered, the Online Features menu should look like this:

The additional options at the bottom of the Online Features Menu (not visible in the above images) relate to the Online Ventures Feature. Those additonal options are explained on the Venture Feature page.

Paint Mods

Paint mods available in every restarted game:

  • 50 Foundation X (bonus from registering as above)
  • 10 Obsidian X (part of the Collectors Edition when it was pre-ordered)

Foundation X Paint Mod

Obsidian X Paint Mod (pre-ordered Collectors Edition)

How To Apply A Paint Mod

Right click on any of the ships you want to apply the paint mod to and select "REDESIGN" from the list of actions (or select the "REDESIGN" option at the computer panel in front of docked ships). There will be three tabs with the rarity categories of mods. The Foundation X paint mod is in the ENHANCED tab, and the rarer Obsidian X paint mod is in the EXCEPTIONAL tab.

Can Not Find Paint Mods In-Game?

If you do not see your mods listed in game in the REDESIGN action of one of your ships, after activating the game in the online community, try logging off and on again (or just restart the game, same effect).

If you have purchased the "Foundations Collector's Edition Content" upgrade, it will need to install before the Obsidian X paint mod appears in-game.

    "like the new paintmod that any customer gets for free for just registering their game"

    I thought that was preorder-exclusive? I did log in to my egosoft account and didn't get any paintmods...

      I think you also need to register the game to your egosoft account here

      As is stated, there is an exclusive "exceptional" paint mod for preorder, AND a free "advanced" paint mod for anyone that registers.

    Could this page be updated to explain ... can you use this paint infinitely? limited times? I believe it is limited to 50 - but do you "get them back" if you sell or destroy a ship?

    1. Please text and I can update the page accordingly.

    The paint jobs are credited to your in-game personal inventory, once for every game where this has not already happened. You apply the paint jobs to your ships from your inventory, thus allowing you to have up to 50 Foundation X ships painted red and 10 Obsidian X ships painted black in any given game.

    If you start a new game, your inventory will be credited with the full number once again.

    Купил игру по предзаказу в STEAM в 2018 , забыл аккаунт на который её зарегистрировал, зарегистрировать на другой не получается. Хочу получить доступ к онлайн возможностям. Как мне быть в этой ситуации?

    I bought the game by pre-order in STEAM in 2018, forgot the account for which I registered it, I cannot register for another. I want to access online opportunities. How can I be in this situation?

    After 4.10 the login screen says online features (greyed out) are "temporarily unavailable". I see nothing in this wiki or patch notes. How do I activate online features? I have no mods.
