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 www.egosoft.com for the online community (same as your forum account!).
How To Register
- Start the game
- Open the Online Features menu:
- Log in with your Egosoft Forum's account name and password
- You can ask the menu to remember you for convenience
- Click on the Register button, which opens your Egosoft Forum User Control Panel
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 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.
