    Where do I get patch 1.10 please?

    1. I am not sure about GOG, but for Steam you can setup your game to auto-update via the Properties menu.

    When I am considering hiring people, there are numbers for engineering and morale, for example, but then those figures don't appear when I go to assign someone to a ship.  What do those numbers mean and how do they translate to performance?

     

    1. Higher numbers increase performance but the specifics are not known by players at this time. NPCs will learn over time, increasing their stats.

    Does anyone know how to get a military license? TIA

    1. At Rank 10, a Faction will grant you the ability to purchase Small and Medium military ships (after completing the mission to talk to the Faction Representative).

      At Rank 20, you gain the Capital Ship Licence, which extends the above to include the purchase of Large and eXtra Large military ships.

    after i use scan my weapons no longer fire how do i fix?

     

    1. If this isn't a bug, you may have changed your weapon group. If that occurred, you can change your weapon group back picking which ever you assigned them to (keys 1-4 on keyboard).

    anyone know how/where to acquire the "build Modules" or the "venture" modules? kinda wanna build my own shipyard but all i can get are the production facilities so far

    1. I don't think the Venture module is available in-game yet. For other station modules, their blueprints can be purchased from Faction Representatives or found via Signal Leaks around stations (or created via EMP bombs).

    Why is there no missiles

     

     

    1. Info on what launchers can fire which missiles, and on missiles as ammo, can be found on the Purchasing and Upgrading ships Manual page.

      Players have started adding adding info on missiles themselves to the Missiles page in the main X4 Wiki. Please feel free to edit the Missiles page based on what you learn.
