Just logged in after a small update ran on my steam client and I am no longer able to use the spacesuit repair laser. My suit inventory shows that i have it, but it doesn't show up for me to use. Just in case I went and sold the one I had and bought another. Still nothing. I can't assign it to any weapon group and it shows nowhere. Any ideas? Or new bug / issue?

It's a bug, which has been reported already in the Public Beta forum here.

Interception seems to go after near enough enemy small vessels from what i can tell.
Irrational factors are clearly at work.

Thank you, I was looking for that beta forum last night but didn't see it. Appreciate the response and the forum link.

Does the game have a "story"...
Yes, yes it does! But you have to direct it yourself like often the case with sandbox games. My storyline entails the "Nopileos War" - The Nopileos Empire (my faction) starting a conquest of Paranid space in order to build a new nation that unites all the races of the X universe under one banner, future chapters would probably have included wars with other factions and an eventual Galactic War but, I never actually finished this story. I will probably start over and create a new story.

Not at all! Sandbox games never are but, you have to approach them with a creative mind. Put your own soul into them.
I didn't ask about any of that. Please don't ramble about things no ones asking about. I was quite clear that I was asking about real story lines like X3. Don't tell other people how to play games, that some disgusting unhelpful behavior.

Much more story is coming in both 3.X and the Split DLC.

Hi all. I can't find any good info about configurable alert sistem. Can somebody please explain for me, how actually it works and what exacly this alert sistem is? I created some alerts, but as far as I can see they don't have any effect. Or I don't understand something. P.s: I'm playing only offline mode, no ventures.Thanks in advance ;)

To join the 3.0 public Beta, Do I need to own a copy of X4 Foundations First?

your directions where to right click and choose properties, I can only do that on games I own (steam).
Since I do not own X4 Foundations is there a way to try the 3.0 beta?

its totally unclear to me as well, but i assume its related to owning sectors and getting alerted that enemies approach.

Whoa! Jumpy are we?

I was merely trying to extract some positivity out of the game's current state in a quirky way but, you are clearly looking for something to be angered about for the sake of arguing.

Lighten up man! Don't stress yourself out over it.

One thing noticed about the current beta.
Started a game last week (3.0b3) with the Teladi start. From the first moment start getting messages about the wars etc, which is great and so are the battles. :)
However decided to pause for a bit and try the Paranid start last night

Didn't got a single message of the war fronts, if stations are been built, where the factions are making operations etc.
Is this because Teladi - Argon are more or less together and Paranids not, so not getting notifications?

Also Grand Exchange 1 with Paranid start on 3.0b3 is like it was with 2.5, full of Khak's and Xenons attacking even the PHQ.
On the Teladi start on 3.0b3 there is none to be found in Grand Exchange on all 3 sectors in the 17 hours played which is pretty quiet, big surprise considering how it was with patch 2.5 when started playing the game.
Do I miss something?

Beta 4 is out, here are my favorite highlights:

[Beta 4] Added option to move order positions up and down on map.
[Beta 4] Added visible capital ship geometry on map when zoomed in sufficiently.
[Beta 4] Added option to install weapon mods on turret groups.
[Beta 4] Added option to show faction colours instead of relation colours on map.
[Beta 4] Improved station construction display to only show lines to two closest compatible connections.
[Beta 4] Fixed fleet subordinates sometimes failing to dock at their fleet commander.
