Spoilers ahead


This page contains spoilers about the total number of sectors as well as their names and resources. If you want a spoiler-free introduction take a look at the The X-Universe And Map page

Universe Structure

The X-universe consists of 50 Systems, with each System being constructed of up to 3 Sectors. Objects in Sectors sit in Zones, which can be considered to be things within radar range of an object. The location of systems and sectors, how they connect to each other, as well as the location of major Factions stations like shipyards and trade stations are the same in any game start (with the exemption of the tutorials).

In total there are 63 sectors linked by Super Highways (between relatively-close sectors in a system), Orbital Accelerators (between very distant sectors in a system) or Jump Gates (between systems). You may also occasionally discover Anomalies, which provide 1-way routes to a random anomaly in another sector. For further details about the features that connect systems and sectors, see the The X-Universe And Map page of the manual. Basics on how to efficiently travel through the universe can be found on the Piloting And Travel page.

With Split Vendetta DLC

More Jump Gates have reconnected to the universe adding 26 new Systems to the north of the network with a total of 30 new Sectors to explore. With these new sectors come new routes between known space, fresh opportunities for exploitation and additional Xenon threats

    layout of the universe in X4:Foundations is highly randomised on game start

    Is it? I found a map on the forums which looks exactly the same as mine.

  2. Anonymous

    Map is not random.

  3. Anonymous

    The placement of things within the sectors can be random. Some are fixed. The sectors themselves are not random.

    Someone should make a map file pdf of the entire explored "Vanilla" universe

  5. It is on the to do list.

  6. Anonymous

    If there are any issues with the map feel free to pm me

    Instead of a PDF of the map (if that is even still on the to do list), wouldn't an SVG version be even better? The vector format seems very appropriate, would be indefinitely scalable, and could be processed into a PDF, PNG, or any other format, on the user's end...

    Thanks for considering.
