    I had to install the vulcan runtime dll and also updated graphics drivers to the latest versions. Then mine worked well.

    There was a post about it on the forums.

    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.

    i am looking for information on turret controls for large ships. mostly in regards to attack stations. i understand the default is for defense but is there a function to make them attack target while player piloted like with medium ships? even if the m class weapons stayed on defense the large class weapons ought to, in my opinion, be able to be directed where ever i wish with in reason.

    1. Anonymous

      it appears they function fine with an AI pilot. all turrets firing at station. weird though that an npc some how has more control over my ship that i do.

    2. Hello. Turret controls for the release and beta versions of the game are explained in the X4 Manual's Combat And Weapons page.

  18. Anonymous

    Hello fellow space dwellers..... Are you all not wondering why this game is flawed? Ohno, the graphics are OK, just wait until real rendering comes around the corner, X4 will prob. be one of the first to show off!!! And that is their good right. But, as I said, what is wrong then? I am not gonna burn anything or anyone, but I really need to see more area's we can go and interact. Here we have this humongous space station, with ubermuch space inside, and there is no freaking way that we can walk through there, rent a room to sleep, or have diner in one of them fancy restaurants... Also, being able to buy a mammoth, it holds 218 souls onboard, and the only places I can go is the bridge and the flight deck....
    Why do I find that akward? where are all those people I paid for? what are they doing? how can I interact? Is there a command structure in the ranks that keep personel under control??? You never know what might happen in space, brain control aliens, akward phenomenons, bulbs in space that are going faster than normal space, luiquid space? etc. etc.... The game is wonderfull, in a year or so, I can enjoy this game more and more.... I hope the devs will see this problem too, and are willing to fix it and add such ideas.....

    1. Please provide feedback via the Egosoft forum where Devs are likely to see it. Thank you.

    I could do with some help please.

    Bought X4 Foundations Collectors Edition before it came out. Despite inevitable bugs, been pleased with the wait for new game.

    Problem begins when I try to register game to access extra content and the Venture Mode of play. I'm informed my Steam account is linked to another Forum account, so access is not granted.

    Have tried to reset this via my Forum account, only to be told the same thing. Cannot seem to correct this issue via my Steam account either. E-mailed Egosoft, but no reply.

    I even tried a fresh Forum account, still game is linked to another account !!! Other than deleting Steam and trying a totally new Steam and Forum approach, what else can I do ?

    There seems to be no way to "speak" to a real person at Steam to try and resolve this. If I had any hair left I'd be pulling it out !!!

    1. Could it be possible you had a second egosoft forum account in the past which was already linked to your Steam account? If not, then I would suggest you contact one of the forum administrators for help.

    mdskript error report:

    mdscript name="Boarding"

    cue name="Infiltration_Ticker"

    <actions>

     ...

    <do_if value="not this.$killed?">

             <set_value name="this.$Progress" exact="this.$BaseProgress * (100.0f / [$Operation.marines.infiltrating.{this.$marine}.combinedskill, 1.0f].max)"/>      -  is not correct!!!

     

    must be:

             <set_value name="this.$Progress" exact="this.$BaseProgress * (20.0f * [$Operation.marines.infiltrating.{this.$marine}.combinedskill, 1.0f].max)"/>  - /Combined skill value (between 0 and 100 per individual)/ 

    (If Combined skill = 100, then  2 ticks  //  If Combined skill = 0, then  125 ticks  = 250 sec per 100% hull)

     

    ...

    what happens in reality:
    not an experienced marine make infiltration through the hull- 2-5 min
    experienced - 1 hour 40 minutes
     

    this is unnormal !

    Hi EGOSOFT-ers, do you guys read the STEAM FORUM SECTION on X4 ?????

    Well, you should do so, because there are lots of bolts loose in the game.

    Read for instance this message, https://steamcommunity.com/app/392160/discussions/0/1744479698810118305/

    There are lots of other 'problems' and if you guys don't read them, they wont be addressed to, and that would be such a shame...

    1. Hi, please note that the development team does not monitor the comments section of this wiki. I would suggest reposting your message to the offical Egosoft forums which can be found at the following link location: https://forum.egosoft.com/viewforum.php?f=152

      If there are specific issues with X4 you wish to report that you believe Egosoft are not already aware of, please make a post to the technical support forum located at the following link location: https://forum.egosoft.com/viewforum.php?f=180

    This game makes all the other X series games looks like masterpieces. And frankly, it's true the all the other games in the same series were amazing compared to this one.

    The only game by Egosoft that even comes close to being as terrible as X4: Foundations is Rebirth and that game was barely even in the same GENRE!

    X4: Foundations has less than half the ships, TWO less ALIEN RACES than, and less than a quarter the number of stations that X3: Albion Prelude had to offer. Now, if this were simply a teaser, I'd be fine with this. If this were only a drop in the bucket that is X4 Foundations, I'd be fine with this. If this were merely a teaser for what was the come, I wouldn't be bothered at all.

    But alas, this isn't merely a teaser of what is to come or a showing of the newest upgrades to be released in the X4 Foundations series. This is the fullest extent of what is to come. This is the complete showing of what Egosoft has to offer for the future. And if this is the future of Egosoft - I no longer wish I invest in Egosoft's future.

    Egosoft may continue to provide new schematics, and new ship designs, but I have almost no faith in their ability to provide anything revolutionary to the existing designs. If such designs are provided then I'll be glad, but even so, I still have no faith in Egosoft to provide new schematics that will invite new designs that can counter that which has yet to come.

    Regardless of what Egosoft may provide, things don't look good for them. No matter how right or wrong I am about this, the next generation of explosives much be integrated into your new designs. This should keep both sides on an even playing field for at least several months to come.

      Please note that the first expansion for X4 is planned to be released sometime later this year and may address some of your issues. Egosoft is committed to supporting and expanding on the games it develops long past the release date. What you see today in X4 is not the end of the story.
