- The X Rebirth original plot is replaced by a tutorial to learn the game and a series of missions. The later storylines from X Rebirth 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0 including the addition of SETA, jumpdrive, weapon mods and much more are all included too.

Fair comment, I missed that. I didn't mean to come across as crotchety but best laid plans of mice and men I guess. :/

Having said that. Its a good game. It now runs well on my setup. The latest patch...

Also, if you really want the main campaign, the Vanilla Recall collection will let you play it

Nice one, not played for a while and forgot about the mod, will maybe try again.

Be aware that the Vanilla Recall collection reintroduces the original X Rebirth map, which causes problems with some of the missions. See also Lothari's post here.

I supported it by buying it. I posted feedback on the forums. i think I lived up to my side of the contract when it comes to Early Access. I enjoy the title for what it offers but lets face it, the main campaign is a bit of a joke tbh.

There is not likely to ever be an X4VR From what I have heard / read so my focus is on the title I already paid for.... XRVR. Exactly where egosofts focus is on the other hand is anyone's guess.


Apologies, I didn't mean to imply that your criticism was unfair and I agree that the "campaign" in XRVR is, to say the least, short and rather flimsy (rebuild the Skunk, shoot some Xenon, and that's pretty much it). I'm also not happy with some things, beyond the poor story. There are lots of visual artifacts, the controls are a fairly basic port (point and click instead of using finger presses on buttons), and fleet management is quite awkward (although that's true of all X games, not just XRVR). Still, it's a good first attempt and we should encourage the devs to make it better.

Also, why I can't speak for Egosoft's plans, I think that X4VR will be made. Egosoft said that VR wouldn't make it at launch but they didn't exclude the possibility and VR in general is rapidly expanding. A bunch of new VR headsets have just hit the market, entry prices are tumbling, graphics cards are becoming more and more powerful (next year's Volta from NVidia should give another very significant boost to performance), and space games in VR are just such a natural match that I find it hard to believe that a major title like X4 wouldn't be ported.


Just so you know... I edited my post whilst you were posting although the essence is the same and no apologies necessary as I did not take any offence Smile

I would love an X4VR but its going to be hard to make the content compatible. I don't think the engine is up to providing the same rich content for both pancake and VR versions and I doubt they'd want to support 2 different content versions simultaneously. Just look at XRVR as an example. It has been very much cut down from the vanilla XR for assumedly performance reasons, so based on that alone, I find an X4VR highly unlikely.


Well, I'll only buy the VR version, if they make it. After hundreds of hours in Elite Dangerous and now well over 120 in XRVR, there's no way I'm going back to playing a major space sim on a flat screen. Simple as that. It's not possible for me...

Well I have now had another 2 "Escort Pride of Albion" and 3 "Last known patrol location" missions. Will this ever end. Its getting monotonous. Is there something I am missing? Am I failing to do something that triggers the campaign to move on? How many more of these very repetitive missions am I likely to endure? Has anyone got past this in the vanilla XRVR campaign?

Well, I managed to progress -- sorta. I got a mission (after many, many escort and last known patrol locations missions) to board a Xenon I. Things were going well. I managed to board the I, "capture it", and then my Marines escaped in their pods. The next stage of the mission was to recover my Marines safely. Now, I have no idea how to do this. There was no obvious command. They were just following me. I led them away from the I, and we just sat there in space until I got the "mission accomplished" message. BUT. All my marines and my Marine commander were gone ! No way I was losing a 5-Star commander, 11 Elites and 39 Veteran Marines. So I reloaded, tried again, and same thing happened. I reloaded again and ignored the mission. My Marines are too precious to waste.

I am also stuck in the "Last known patrol location" loop with the xenon swarms, like 12 times now. Stuck in a loop. Keeps wanting me to repeat that mission even after I get the mission accomplished message after every time. Just ignoring the mission now and moving on to other stuff.

Weird, I got about 4 of them I think, until you find the Xenon cap ship and damage it enough so it escapes. Then the 5th time was a tutorial about getting marines, taking out its defences, and boarding it, which I completed (my marines also failed to come home and were killed, like previous poster).

After I finished that mission I found I now owned some big freighter along with the container ship you get earlier.

But that's it so far - no more story missions after that yet. There are still tutorials I see in the menu so I was wondering if I were meant to get more?
