*Original post, April 7th, 2020*
After a few eventful days following the release of X4: Foundations 3.00 and X4: Split Vendetta, we are now entering a new public beta phase. We have just released a Public Beta version of the upcoming 3.10 update for X4: Foundations.

Public Beta Update 3.10 includes the following changes, among others:
  • Added mission to expand HQ if selected research requires excessive resources.
  • Improved balance and pricing of recruitable personnel on station docks.
  • Improved performance for games where player owns very large number of ships and stations.
  • Improved colour differentiation between racial Construction Vessel ships.
  • Improved storage capacity of Split mining ships.
  • Improved mastering of legacy music tracks.
  • Fixed some missing voice recordings in German, French and Russian localisations.
  • Fixed certain hazardous regions giving massive numbers of crystal drops.
  • Fixed wrong faction sometimes being blamed when ships or stations are destroyed.
  • Fixed mining drones not launching to collect broken-down asteroids they had earlier marked for collection but didn't collect due to cancellation.
  • Fixed male Split characters sometimes having female voices with Split Vendetta installed.
  • Fixed engine sound problems under specific circumstances.
  • Fixed graphical artefacts for AMD Navi GPUs (5600/5700).
  • Fixed several causes of crashes.
For the full change log to Public Beta Update 3.10, please visit this thread.

Fixed excessive ware amounts required for final stage of Paranid plot.
Are the excessive ware requirements for the split plot ever going to be fixed or even acknowledged?

EDIT: No it has not been fixed.
We still need to deliver 22,222,222 missile components.
Will there ever be a response to this?

EDIT: It's being looked into by the devs.

You should probably activate SETA to catch up with the real time. We are already in April and not March as you stated in your update :)

Looks Like it broke the Young Guns Start for me. I cannot get through the Anomaly but I was able to after the 3.0 patch.

Please tell me you didn't just release it with broken station interactions... please tell me you didn't just do that.

In the perf area with very large empire:
I saw great improvement(and it is not ironic at all if you look at the percentage):
- from 6 fps previously in space to 15-20fps
- from 3-6 fps in to 4-10fps in the map view
sometime it is hanging up for a few sec in maps - it might become more visible now as the rest has improved
to be constructive, I can reproduce nearly systematically when I go to the owned stations, unaffected ships etc ...

I'll wait for another patch until I will play again. This is a super annoying bug :|

Judging by comments from another discussion, another patch may not happen until after Easter.

I propose augmenting the 3.10 changelog for the time being:
  • Improved balance and pricing of recruitable personnel on station docks.
  • Have fun interacting with said personnel on said docks.
Need thicker oven mitts. Much thicker.
