Thx for answer. And a few more questions.
In X4: Cradle of Humanity can I use my old save(The Accomplished Scientist)? Will all content be available to me? What about Yaki, I read something about theirs missions, now my reputation -25. Is it possible, or I need a new start?
You can use your old saves. Yakis are part of a plot and their reputation will evolve during that plot.

All plots are available to any gamestart. It’s simply the "starting" part of those gamestarts that are exclusive to said gamestarts. They’re nice but relatively short and you can do them by playing these gamestarts for a few hours before returning to your main "save" (if you wish).
Thanks

Note to GeForce RTX 30 Series GPU users
We'd also like to take this opportunity to remind you again about the GeForce Hotfix Driver Version 462.07 that was released by NVIDIA earlier this week. If can be found downloaded here, and addresses the "lost device" crashes some GeForce RTX 30 Series GPU users may have experienced.

Please use NVIDIA's Display Driver Feedback Form if you still experience issues after updating to the new hotfix driver.

It's there for Windows, the Linux version is obviously still lagging behind.

Egosoft:

The entire 4.0 is broken and you have basicly drownd all the players in endless grind, and ruind the entire game yes entire game.The game is simply not fun any more as you nerf and brake all means of income and gameplay. you need to fix this and fix it fast or you might rather get to a point where you lose so many dedicated players that you end up harming the longlivety of the game.

If you could explain what is broken, in your opinion, this might be more useful.

Personally, I actually prefer the current version over 3.3 and wish the solar-intensity would differ for other areas as well.
With 4.0, it's the first time I still feel enjoyment with the game with more then 24 hours of ingame time. With 3.3, I would be thinking of restarting already as it all got too easy.

And this I don't understand.
I'm not the most experienced when it comes to stations, but mine (1 of each terran production module, apart from medical and food) is doing fine.
I got probes all over the universe, but my mining ships (assigned to stations) collect what is needed from the sector next door, none of them goes across to the other side of the universe.

Only tweaks I did was set the raw materials to my faction only and the prices at the lowest value.
It's slow, because I can't afford many mining ships, but money does come in.

Same for my solar power plant in mercury, NPC-factions go there to buy energy from me. Am probably going to set up a trade station at a more convenient location to improve sale eventually, but for now, it's doing what I want it to do.

Nerf and brake [sic] all means of income and gameplay? A little hyperbole here perhaps?
I am seeing income and plenty of gameplay. Just because you aren't making a billion credits after a few hours of play where you don't even have to put any effort into strategy does not mean the gameplay is broken. This sounds like complaining about a jigsaw puzzle because all the pieces aren't square.
If you have been around since the first game you would know XBTF wasn't easy, X2 and X3 weren't intended to play a few days and beat. They all have challenges and are intended to make the player THINK as well as providing weeks and months of entertainment.
If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.

Seriously look in the forums and you can drown yourself in problems ppl having not only income but generall game play. How about stations not mining propper recorce and all. i understand you are a fan boi i am also, that is why i try and get the message over to Egosoft so they can deal with it asap before they ruin the entire game.

It's quite common that people aren't fond of changes. That's what we have here - a X4 that is evolving into a more serious game. Thus the not-so-easy mining game mechanics.

Like always, Egosoft will address the most real problems in time. And as always the exaggerated ones will be forgotten in time as they aren't real problems. This mostly happens when people adapt to new situations.

So for you stations not getting suplies, and miners dont mine what stations need and just sit and do nothign is not a problem.? Then i wonder are you playing the game? And what are you doing in game, sitting around and watch asteroides spin?
Any how i have said what i wanted to say and try and rely over to Egosoft, am not here to bikker and argue with ppl.That wont solve anything.

I'm doing quite fine so far - I adapted to the changes and I am building my 3rd Asgard right now. That's 1mrd credits for blueprints'n stuff + getting a hang on the new mining stuff. So it is possible. (CoH forced me to own my first L & XL shipyard because I couldn't just simply buy all the new toys but have to build them myself)

But yeah, I'm not here to bicker too. Just wanted to show a different perspective as well.
